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.

    • Even in a big city, trying to ban guns only helps the criminals. Criminals don’t turn in their guns, only the law abiding citizens which are being unarmed. Pretty simple stuff.
    • Day 159.  Periodic 6-iron shots (at least one block of at least five minutes) during breaks in a long meeting schedule.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, priority piece related to backswing length. I also tried quarantine day 13 drill (high pitches/flops), something I don't know how to do, and I think I was doing the drill wrong.  All my shots went left.  Thankfully, I was using foam balls.  I'm going to review the video later (time permitting), along with what people tried when those drills were released and see if their feedback applies to me, and try again
    • I changed out the the bag this year going over to Ping from primarily Tayormade clubs. Driver: Ping G-410   12 degree Ping G-410  5wood Ping G-410. 7 wood Ping G410. 5 hybrid Ping G410 5 iron to PW   I was fitted to play Orange dot which is 2 degrees flat for my irons. Playing around with the adjustable driver and metal woods. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    • It was a new course.  You get a pass.  Next time you need to keep it around 3 hours.  😁😉
    • I totally agree. Tiger brought a game that was head an shoulders above the rest. Primarily he introduced serious workout regimens. He inspired many talented athletes to take up golf. Todays golf is being played seriously worldwide. No longer just a game for the privileged country club players.
