Would You Rather…?

No, it's answering the question. Practice on the course, the way I practice, is less valuable than time on the range. So I made the best of it while staying within your rules. You didn't say six tournament rounds per week or anything like that.

Fair enough

You know, immediately after I posted my previous post I started thinking I may have gotten it wrong, primarily because of the O-Value. I'll revisit that in a bit, though… Not that much lower.

Definitely hole out from the fairway twice a year for the rest of my life. An eagle on a par four is -2. A hole in one is -2. Two awesome shots/year would be something to look forward to forever.😃

I’ve done both in a day....but they sold nachos at the Putt-Putt so that helped.

Assuming you had unlimited time each day.

Would you rather play 18 holes of golf 6 days per week but only go practice golf once per week? 
Or, would you rather practice golf 6 days per week and only play 18 holes once per week? 

I'd prefer to play.  I enjoy my practice, but if I have the time, I'll play.

There was a time when I would rather practice than play, but today my game is going to benefit more from playing than practicing, i.e. learn how to handle certain lies, etc.  Besides, about half of my rounds are solo anyways so those really have become my practice sessions.

I’d actually think I would prefer to practice 6 days a week and play the other day. My game would benefit from it more, my wallet would benefit from that vs playing 6 days a week, and it would give me more time to do other things.

I'd much rather play 6 days a week. I practice a fair amount on the course anyways, so this would just mean more time playing golf, which would be great.

Would rather play 6 days a week - although my caveat would be that I don't think my body would appreciate playing/practicing 7 days a week. At some point my knees, back, elbow would want a day off .... but I'd be willing to give it a try, though the weather might have something to say about it.

I'd much rather play the 18 holes of golf 6 days per week and practice once per week.   There are times when I'm by myself I do practice on the course.

I have an assistant pro friend with a +2.5.  He's also a teaching pro.  He recommends his students practice what he taught them.  But this guy NEVER practices... and I kid him about it because I practice a lot.  He says he can practice everything he needs on the course.  I kinda like that approach.  So I'll go with playing 6 days a week instead of my usual 3 days of playing and 4 days of practice.  I assume ChetLovesMer is picking up the tab on this...

I'm going to construe this as limiting what I think the author intended: meaning, PLAY v. PRACTICE.  None of this practicing on the golf course business some are trying to sneak by with.  I know the facts don't say tournament play, but I'm going to construe it as tournament play/important matches/etc. v. practice time.  Otherwise, methinks that's cheating the scenario a bit, but I don't blame you--I would do the same.

As such, I'm going to take practice.  Playing golf that much would be fun for a while but then it would become far too unwieldy and could lead to burn out.  While you can certainly learn a lot on the course, I fear that playing that much and having such little time to work on things would lead to bad habits and no growth.

Practicing 6 days a week, on the other hand, would be very beneficial.  You could separate your practice time out in blocks, do mixed/random practice, practice/play on a simulator, and really own your swing.  I think that would lead to more anticipation and excitement for when you get to play that once per week.

You do you, but don't be surprised when others react like @70sSanO did earlier.

I answered the question as written. If I am on the course hitting balls I'm "playing." I'm also practicing. Hell, a "practice round" at a PGA Tour event is still "playing" too.

I know, I said I would do the same.  I just felt that the author had other intentions, and to me, they were clear; but, I get the "loop hole" attempt ya'll went for!

That's the logic my wife uses.   A clear mind reader or intentional  "Let me change your mind to my way of thinking".

Given just this choice, I would play. But I think most of us would have a different ratio.

Would I HAVE to practice once a week?  I really don’t want to increase my practice time that dramatically!   :-D

Play.  Always.

    • It’s going to come down to companies and non-government institutions to make things better.  Our political system, and politics, are too fractured for cooperation.  I even think a blanket federal mandate has big issues.  We don’t need everyone vaccinated, just more than we have.   I’m fine to have a solid 10% of people who don’t get it because they think Bill Gates is microchip happy, or it’s going to turn you into a Mole person.   Or whatever morons whose sandwich count is well short of a picnic.
    • It looking more and more like Michigan is going to be going back to masks required.   Nothing official yet but several counties have such a huge uptick that they are recommended that masks be worn for everyone.   MSU and UM have now made requirements for all staff, facility and students be vaccinated.  
    • I’m not a big fan of that drill. It can cause your right elbow to get stuck on your side. I like this drill better and the feel that the right arm widens the backswing. Also, ‘staying connected’ doesn’t really mean that your arms should be glued to your sides. Check this thread out.  
    • Bullshit. You’re trolling. Did you poll any other native Americans or just the ones who would agree with your take? Or maybe your ‘friend’ just agreed with you because they are tired of your endless whining. Stop embarrassing yourself with your ‘silliness’.
    • I’m simply sharing the thoughts and perspective of people who’s opinions on the subject seem to be a lot more relevant than yours and mine. I’m not at all embarrassed because you disagree with them.
