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!

    • Day 518: Did some backswing drills working on priority piece with Live View Pro camera. Hit some foam balls outside,  slow speed for a few 10-ball sets with rehearsals between, and then close to full speed for the last 10. 
    • Interesting.  I don't need them during a round, so if it lasts a few minutes, and that's enough to offload the rounds, that's good enough for me.  I wish they'd keep the Windows app working, I don't understand why they discontinued it.
    • Day 84.   Real balls today!  I hit a dozen balls this evening, slow backswing slow through, focusing on the chest down head back parts from last time.  After the first, I made good contact, so I think that's a good sign.  
    • Day 506 - May 17, 2021 Hit balls (including one ball into the parking lot) from the back of the range at Whispering Woods today. Didn't quite have the same feel as the other day, but… it's close.
    • So I was helping my daughter out at the back of the range today. I had chipped literally two 8-irons, then wanted her to take a break, so I said “watch this in case I duck hook it onto the practice green” (short game). I’m on the back of the range, hitting toward the mats that are 300 yards away. I hit it, a high seed, and… it hits by the mats (between two people, about six mats apart) and bounces into the parking lot. It’s a gravel parking lot, the ball didn’t go very far. But, ooooookay. So, that’s enough of that. My daughter was both in awe and frightened that I may have dented someone’s Honda. A student takes his Mevo out on the course to measure shots hit out there, and he said he measured my first tee shot a few days ago at 175 ball speed and 117.x (don’t remember the decimal value) clubhead speed. He bought a set of SuperSpeed sticks off eBay later that day. Wheeeeee.
