I played a ton of golf as a teen and into my early twenties and got pretty good at it (would regularly break 80).
Then I had three kids in 4 years and hardly touched a club for 10 years! Maybe a few scrambles at work outings, but that's it.
Then 7 years ago I found myself divorced and with some time on my hands so I picked up golf again. It has taken me all of those seven years to start to feel like I can play even close to the way I did back in my early twenties. Obviously some of it is age (I'm 40, not 25), but it just took TIME to get the feel back. It was a much bigger struggle than I anticipated. Perhaps I just relied on pure athleticism back then and I had to reinvent the way I swing.
It wasn't until I set up a net in my basement and started swinging EVERY DAY that I started to see real progress and improvement.
Anyway, has anyone else returned to golf after several years away? Care to share your experiences here?
Day. 163 - Range work today focusing on the same items. Working with the feel of trying to fade each shot by keeping the hands from turning over too soon. Seems to be working well for ball flight. Driver is slight push fade. Irons slight push draw when done correctly.

Donald Ross was prolific in my area, around Philadelphia. But I have to wonder about what he is ultimately credited with because my club is listed in the Ross Society's website as a remodel, and it never happened. My club is a George Thomas design and I am sure Ross was familiar with it because he designed and worked on multiple clubs within a twenty minute drive, but he didn't do anything at my club. Flynn tinkered with it, but not Ross.
