One fellow I used to know had a pretty sweet setup where his business more-or-less operated itself. He and this buddy of his were at Kittyhawk basically every day. They would routinely play a full 18, then they'd get lunch, then bounce around playing random holes (which you really weren't supposed to do) and then top it off with league in the evening. Only sub-forty-degree or rainy weather ever stopped those guys.

Much as I like the game, I couldn't imagine wanting to play that much golf. 

The guy who owns all the local McDonalds would golf every day if his group did, but he does golf four days a week.

I've never seen him at any of the McDonalds.

If time and money weren't issues. I'd either play and/or practice every day. If the weather's good I'm going to play at least 9. (I'm one of those weird guys that likes playing 9.)  The perfect w

3-4 times a week for me and that is my schedule currently allows.  At 68 there are a few aches at times. I also know what is too much golf.  Last year I joined a small group (8) of golfers in Flo

Well, there wasn't today. Played 18 with my buddy, who I've known for 45 years. Shot a stupid 77, with a 4 putt on the 18th green. Came off the course, and a group that plays Friday mornings at 1

Speaking of moderation, I was asked to "man" a golf simulator in a shopping mall one day a couple years ago.  Very few came in, so it was mostly me playing it for 8 hours.

I could not move for two days afterwards.

 

 

Yeah, but they didn't play golf back then...

For me it'd be 3-4 times a week. Even if I was off everyday and had unlimited funds (won the lotto or something), I still have other things I enjoy doing that would take up time. I'd probably alternate days between playing/practicing golf and long-range target shooting.

Back before kids and had a job that had a lot of night shifts, I would play/practice 3-4 times per week and that was pretty great.

Played my 30th round of the year today.  It’s been cold and rainy here. Frost delays, etc.

I guess that averages to just over 4 a week so far this year.

My game does leave me scratching my head most times.  Today’s round on #2 took 5 hours 20 minutes! We had a shotgun start, started on hole #7. We flew around the 1st twelve holes in 2 hours, 25 mins. Then ran into Resort tee times. Had to wait 15min on hole 1 at the turn. From that point on every tee box had two groups on the tee. On the 5th hole we had 3 groups waiting.

Well, that's not conducive to lowering one's handicap.

    • I played as a 2 man in a pretty big local tournament that gets top flight guys. The course was set up long and tough, but weather was good. 1st day =X 2nd day =79 I hit the ball really well both days and would’ve shot in the 70s both days if I didn’t take an X on a hole. I didn’t know where to hit the tee shot, so my captain gave me a starting line hit the ball 15 yards right of the start line- quality drive, captain says that’s not bad, you can get home from there ball was lost on an overgrown hillside and the team was in good shape, so I sat in the cart instead of holding up play i had 50 yards of open fairway to the left thanks captain  Putting was bad but, even with a 5 putt (4 of them were within 3.5 feet and I tried on them all) - I scored pretty well and made a handful of birdies on a tough setup.
    • My biggest drop in handicap over two years was going from a 9.9 to a 3.9. How? I stayed out of the shit.... I called the zoo... I finally cured my hook (It came back again, then I was able to cure it again like literally today.)    @iacas will be the first one to tell you or you can tell for yourself, in My Swing Thread... my swing looks like an unfolding lawn chair. (I’ve taken literally four lessons in my 24 years playing golf). I can understand complex, like the number A# that Erik has on this site. I’m trying to learn to play golf with mostly a three-quarter swing. It is however a process. In the meantime, I aim away from the shit (darker zones), try to get on or around the green, and don’t do anything stupid when I do get out of position... basically “miss” straight... 
    • Yep. Jack was never so lucky to be gifted a major. Those club pros gave him their best every tournament in the early years! 
    • Started with a 5 putt, but turned it around. I’ll find the topic for the better details lol
