Why do you practice? - Page 2

yep, I think that everybody knew what you meant and no sense in stating the obvious. The other poster was only trying to elicit some sort of reaction in this (and a lot of other) threads. Glad you did not take the bait. A good compromise is hitting off a rather plush mat that somewhat mimics real turf, but even so, they are more forgiving. These past several weeks, I have hit hundreds if not thousands of balls off my back yard set up to the point of shredding my back drop target in two! No more tears since the bottom half is now gone. Should it also get demolished, I will resort to painting a target on the back drop (Shade Cloth). either that, or having my least favorite person's face silk screened onto it.
I like bowling. I am not good at it nor do I play often. I never practice at it. However I can have a great time sucking at that sport while enjoying the company of friends and family. The same things could be said about baseball/softball, tennis, or just about any other sport, but then there is golf. I just despise playing bad golf. I have been playing for 35 years and I know what I am capable of so I refuse to accept poor performance. Therefore whenever my game is what I consider severely off, I hit the range hard and for whatever duration it may take. I'm just coming off a 6 week swing reconstruction and the results are not only impressive but repeatable so for the foreseeable future the range will be for warm ups and tune ups only. Bring on the course!
