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!

    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
