What makes the perfect round of golf for you?  Score, companionship, etc?

Sunny day, very little wind, lots of anticipation, good golfing buddies, cart girl hits on me, the Italian Sports Drink doing its job and shooting a one-under 71.  Coming home (or to the nearest watering hole) for a celebratory gin & tonic.  BBQ chicken that evening.  Perfect.

If I'm out golfing, it's perfect.  I'm not good enough to get upset for more than a few seconds, and after a serious health scare three years ago, I really just appreciate the time.  Blue sky and green grass don't hurt, but I'm not too picky!

Well said.  Nothing like a health scare to make you appreciate the small things... even a triple bogey.  I'm betting you appreciate all kinds of small things.

Quite true.  Sometimes the golf is better, sometimes it's worse, but it's all perfect!

I decided not to wait for a health scare to appreciate the small things... life is in the details...

Temperature in the 50's...a bit of wind...and an empty golf course.  It doesn't happen often but I relish the experience when it does.  Yeah...I should move.  That isn't an option just now.

Seeing a high, long (for me) little draw from the fairway....Time after time. The ball in flight inspires. Best, -Marv

Good company, a good score, on, or near my target score, and no lost balls. Hell, even bad company is not that big of deal.

Maybe at least one really great shot helps. 

A good looking, friendly cart girl with super cold drinks is also a plus.

Good company, good ball striking, good course, good weather....

Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the women.

    • I made it up. But let's see… For me to contract COVID-19 by touching the handle of a gas pump twice: The handle would have had to have been touched by an infected person within the past few hours. There were 32 gas pumps and I was the only car at the station, at about 8:45am. That person would have basically had to slobber on the handle to get anywhere near enough viral load onto the handle. I'm unaware of a handle-of-gas-pump-licking fetish, but maybe it exists. I would have had to get virtually all of that viral load on my hand in a few seconds. I would have then had a HUGE failure of my sanitizer to do ANYTHING to remove the virus from my hands. I would have then had to lick my hand or something to get all of the virus that remained. 0.0001% was probably high. If you wanted to try to figure out the actual number, you'd have to start here: what % of the population currently has COVID-19 and is unaware and out and about? It's not like that number is even 5%.
    • I don't buy that there's only a 0.0001% risk.  Where did that number come from?  I leave my home a lot... groceries, outdoor cocktails (downwind and 10 feet from friends), golf course every day, walks, bicycle rides, a take out burrito today from Casa que Pasa and for gas.  All calculated risks.  It's sort of fun to know... that the next time you reach for the gas pump handle you'll think of good ol' DMM.
    • Viral load matters quite a bit, the pumps are outside, and a bunch of other factors, including that I have a bottle of hand sanitizer in my car. Because, again, 0.000001% may as well be 1%. Why do you ever leave your house if you're not willing to risk 0.0001% chance of anything happening?
    • I haven't seen the score today, and afraid to look. Is it over yet? Hard to watch Billy T. (from Dayton) struggle so much, but his hair style is top notch, lol.
