How Seriously Do You Take Golf?


Recommended Posts

This could have been such a great thread. But the OP obviously had a weird troll agenda.  If someone else posts the same question I would love to respond with a honest answer.

Good point, and I agree that the premise is a good one. @False hopes, if you wouldn't mind, please do this:

I just started seriously this year (played more than 3 rounds). Previously, I liked playing but hated the time commitment. I'd go out drink and generally have fun. But this year, me being more serious about the game, I decided not to drink during my rounds. The reason is, I don't need alcohol to have more fun. It's simply fun being out and playing. Alcohol can wait

I take the game too seriously given my age, ability and amount of time I have to devote to practice. But part of my enthusiasm for the game is trying to improve. So as long as I feel I am making progress it's okay. If I feel like I am not improving it is not as much fun.

I take my own round semi-serious, always trying to go as low as I can on the day, but always playing by the ROG to the best of my ability. I try to let my partners/opponents do their own thing and play their own round, but if they are overly abrasive or just constantly mad, I won't play with them again.

The biggest problem I have to deal with for myself is being overly enthusiastic and putting other people off by it. I have a hard time controlling my love for the game, and my love for talking, so sometimes it is hard for me to shut my mouth and that could mess with others. Affecting someone else's ability to be as serious as they want is offensive and awful to me, which seemed to be the modus operandi of the OP. I guess if you always play with the same people and that's how they roll too, whatever, but not my scene.

I am as serious about golf as I am about literature.  I love reading...I love golf...and both are in my DNA.  I was raised by people who enjoyed both.

P.S.  Shouldn't that be "boath"?

I started a different thread, same concept.

    • Welcome to TST.   Nice introduction.   We're glad you've joined.  
    • 7th hole hcp 1 (450 yard par 4 playing level) hit my driver about 320 leaving myself 130 in. High draw over the trees and back to the fairway where it widens. Missed the small green just left and nearly chipped it in for birdie. Then proceeded to magnificently miss the comeback putt for par.

    • I honestly have no clue what my first scoring round was, given I was around 12 and that was over 30 years ago. Watching your swing video, for someone who has only played their fourth round, you either have a natural athletic aptitude or have been practicing a lot before going out on the course. I understand the double par limit, especially if you are playing with others, but over time you will need to play and count every shot.  I find it really focuses my game to do so.
