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.

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

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.😃

No snow this far north but we have the real feel temperatures in the mid 20s.   Keep the white stuff your way.   Our gift to you!  :dance:

Keep all the memories without creating new ones for two reasons.

The more serious reason is that my Grandpa got me into golf early, when I was 3, and I grew up playing the game with him. He doesn't golf anymore and I have a lot of good memories of us together, so I'd hate to lose it.

The more important reason is that if I can't create any new golf memories I can guarantee I'll have forgotten about my bogies, doubles, and triples by the time I get to the next teebox. I might need those little prayer beads to keep count for scoring, or just use my shot tracking device for scoring, but just think of all the advantages! Being a stupid monkey is easier when you can't remember how much you sucked during the swing change process, you're never rattled by had holes, and you can honestly say you have no idea why this new set of clubs turned up on your doorstep!

Would you rather have snow during the golf season or have Michigan beat Ohio State.  Sorry, that's The Ohio State.

Easy one, I'll take the W for Michigan. 

I've lived in several states in my life. So, I have no loyalty to any team.

Then it should have been something like, “Would you rather have it snow and day or two in April, or rain the whole month of July?”

Lose all the memories and make new ones.

Now, what was the question?...

Most of my golf is rather forgettable and some of it I’d rather forget, so I’ll go ahead and take option one and start playing this game as a 12 handicap.

I must be a natural. I’ll be on tour soon, better start a topic about it 🙃

I guess when I wrote this would you rather I didn't realize how actually depressing either option would be. I was just thinking and wondering if my best golf was in front of me or behind me? It's the kinda shit you wonder about when you are a man of a certain age.

Anyhow, I thought it was a tough question. Because I do truly feel like I'm getting better at golf. I also feel like going forward I'm going to play a lot more golf. Having written that, I no longer get to play with my dad and those are some memories I really cherish. I've had two holes in one, but to be honest those aren't in my top 10 golf memories. Don't get me wrong it's really f-ing cool to hit a hole in one. But for me its more about the people I've played with than the golf itself. 

If I had to pick I think I'd take all of the memories I have. But again, it's a tough choice. If my old man's health was better I'd take memories going forward, because I'm always optimistic that the next shot or next round or next season could be the greatest one ever.

Since I've only really attempted the game for the past 2-1/2 years and I will be 62 this year, therefore losing all the memories would be the "better" option.  Sadly I would lose the first birdie my 4-1/2yr old grandson made (yes we teed him up about 100yds out, but it was still birdie on a par 3 no less), but I would also like to think my best memories would be made going forward as my game will continue to improve to a point (age and loss of physical abilities will begin to rob the improvements), my sons' games will continue to improve and of course I will get to see and remember the great milestones my grandson will make as he grows into the game.  Forward and onward.....

The real key to the question is why would I not be able to create any new memories or why I'd lose the old ones. If I can't remember anything about my experiences playing golf, do I remember everything else? If I can't make any new memories is that because I've suffered some sort of significant injury that makes that impossible?

Supposing we just limit the damage to golf, I'd lose the old memories. I've always had a bit of stupid optimist in me that thinks the best is yet to come.

WOW, as others said, I hate both choices.  I have lots of memories of golfing with my wife, with my "Exchange" son and with many friends.  To lose those would hurt.  But also I figure I have 20+ years of golf ahead of me so not being able to create new memories is also depressing.  Since I have to chose I will take "Lose all of the memories" as long as I can create new ones.  With 20+ years ahead of me I figure I can create enough good memories to replace those lost.  If I were closer to the end of my "Golf Life" then I would definitely want to keep the memories.

    • I actually am toying with playing with a 7- and 9-wood in place of my 3 and 4 hybrids not liking how hybrids hook, my 9 wood would have to be a non-Srixon/Cleveland because I’m not paying XXIO money for a 9-wood.    Hey, the 9-wood might be the modern equivalent, of the Ray Floyd 5-wood at the 1976 Masters, he actually took the 2-iron out and left the 1-iron in when he put the 5-wood in play in the 1976 Masters. The 9-wood might be my answer to question of the long par-three and long par-four second shot I have.
    • Definitely something that could help him keep golf competitions in perspective.
    • Please tell me it was also a vintage MB rather than modern utility iron.
    • I don't have any new video to share but I have experienced some changes physically and with my golf swing that I have to think are going to be beneficial over the long haul. First I dropped almost 50lbs from a high of 223 I was able to get as low as 172 and bounced back up to 179 but I really would like to shed about 15 more to get somewhere in the 160s. Secondly I have noticed something of a habit a bad one at that seems to have gone away. I think since I have decided to throttle down a bit on my swing speed since I'm getting older I noticed I'm not letting go of the club at the top since there is no longer excessive wear on the glove on lower pad below pinky. I'm very hopeful that this is the year I get my game going again with hopefully a new job I'm trying for will give me more opportunity
