Do you stick to a certain number of regular courses then?
I just don't practice anymore (guitar), about 2 years after I picked up the guitar I left the corporate world and made photography my full time gig. Since then playing guitar has been on the back burner.
I have a home course, and then 2-3 other courses I float around and play.
One of them I've never broken 82 on, it is the Dye Course at Stonebridge Ranch Country club. That damn course has my number...and it is usually big. I'm playing in a 3 day member guest there in two weeks so will play it quite a bit over the next week or so.
I'm "working" on my game but not with the obsession I was back 8-9 years ago, if I get back to a scratch great..I'll keep working on things and taking a few lessons but not with the religion that I once did. I actually think I can get there easier now then I did before, but only because I know what to expect. It is hard..very hard. You need to go through 10-15 rounds of golf and never shoot over 75, throw in some even par rounds and a couple under par and you are there.
I taught golf back in the day and only needed my oral interview to have my Class A, decided to leave the business when I bought a landscape company. I miss it now and would go back to teaching...but since I only work with the guys under Hank Haney I have a different appreciation for the knowledge of the swing and I can tell you...most guys have no clue how to teach, I've tried other coaches and it just never worked out. I'd question them hard on why they wanted me to do something and how exactly it would change my impact position or ball flight and they really couldn't give me a good answer. The Haney guys are VERY technical but they can explain exactly why they are asking you to do something...and why it is this that you need to do.
