Same stuff she'd be doing at home, but she gets to be outside and we get to chat too. I'll never be in a rush so I won't try to play through any groups, so rather than stand there for five minutes, we'll talk.
Marriage is about making time for each other and that's one of the ways we'll sometimes do it. She gets to be outside, reading, and I get a little practice in.
Does she come along when I'm playing a round with three other guys? No. But that's not what we're talking about here.
Can your wife maybe talk to my wife? LOL. My wife hates the word golf, but she sees how much it costs, how much time it takes, etc.
She usually jokes about it though and does not care if I go, she just has no desire to watch it or hear about it. Even though when I leave I get the "Okay sweetheart, I love you - have fun!". When I come back home, or if she has to call me mid-round, she'll ask "How are you doing out there?" but I know she's on her iPad or at a store and only asking to be the awesome wife that she is - but it doesn't matter to her I'm sure.
I'd love to go out solo and have her tag along when I can't find anyone as addicted and dedicated as myself to play a round with me. I just know that after 3 holes, she'd go "how much longer? I'm bored..." lol
