I don’t think we know this. There are plenty who come here to run their ball washers about more than golf. They don’t practice or care what their scores are. They don’t take golf seriously at all.

When I'm frustrated, I throw my clubs down the fairway in the direction I'm going so I don't slow play. Does that mean I take golf seriously?

Overhand or underhand?

I do think the connection most on this site have is we like talking golf. Most want to improve as well, but may not currently have the time available to put in to improve.

I saw a guy do this the other day with his 6 and 7 iron and both clubs landed within 5 feet of each other. I told him that he shouldn't get so angry but to check his lofts as he obviously had a gapping issue!  🤣

I believe there’s another thread that touches on this. It asked what do you want from the game of golf.  With that said, there are people who play a few times a month and maybe play 30 times a year. Maybe part of that is based on where people live.  There are probably many things that prevent someone from developing into a good golfer such as kids, work requirements, money, school and other things. Golf is time consuming as we all know.  When I was working I still managed close to or just above 100 rounds a year. Since retiring I’ve been over 240 a year. As of today I hit 70 rounds.

My HDCP floats between 4 to 6 throughout the year. I practice about 4 times a month. But  before I go out to play I get to the course a good hour before the tee time.  That’s were I focus on the area that gave me trouble the last few rounds.  Will I get better?  I’ve come to accept my capabilities and the scores that I shoot, but I’m never satisfied.  I average 78.2 per my HDCP this year, high of 83, low of 74.

I guess you get out of it what you put into it. Players enter the game at a particular skill level based on their athleticism which brings a certain level of hand eye coordination as well. From that point on they improve by putting in the time, finding good instruction and staying in shape. There are other factors I’m sure, we play a game that brings us happiness and sorrow.  I hope the former for all!

    • There are more qualified people who have already responded in this thread about overall practice, but I think you should prioritize practicing the driver if you have a short warm-up before a round. Like if you hit 15-20 balls (as I often do), I prioritize the driver because it's going to give me the best prediction of my ball flight that particular day. As far as overall practice goes, I'll defer to other answers.
    • The last several pages have been somewhat entertaining to read, but let's not forget the most important point. LIV is entirely funded by the Saudi government. It's not going to be profitable. It literally can't be, and we all know this. The Saudi government is not Norway, where the sovereign wealth fund is far more likely to benefit its citizens than a specific elite. This is a country of ~35million run by tribal members numbering roughly ~30thousand. They are constructing this league, and getting into bed with WWE, for a specific reason. THIS IS ALL THE INFO THAT IS NEEDED. I'm not interested at all in anti-trust law or anything of that nature.  You take the blood money, I'm not calling for your prosecution. I've watched Korn Ferry Tour events. Dudes can play better than I can. I'll watch them. Go miss a six foot putt while ZZ Top or some other shit old band plays over the loud speakers at your exhibition.
    • Yea, that is the point. I was 100% aware of what I was doing 😉
    • You literally just said that same thing to me.
