Depends on if her shirt is tucked in

Yeah - they can, if they are the type of woman to monopolize your time or if you have to promise the world to them so they "let" you take the day and golf. You think more about that than what you are supposed to be enjoying.

Well I quit playing after I got married, so I guess in my case a woman seriously screwed up my game. It turns out though that having children can actually improve one's game. It takes a little while but now that my sons are older (11 and 9) they have taken up the game and I'm playing again.

Must be one of those circle of life thingys?

Marrying one can definitely cut into your playing time. But for me that included buying a house and all the time involved in with that too. Maintaining a house and a relationship will certainly take time away from other recreational activities, at least for a while. I had managed 46 years of bachelorhood, so it was all a big change for me.

But now my game is essentially back to where it was when I got married 15 years ago.... it just took retirement to accomplish that...

Yeah - I started to cultivate an active interest in golf back in 2002. At that time the wife (now ex) started her issues and all my spare time was taken up dealing with that BS.

Oh and btw - I happened to be living in Monterey Ca at the time so - perfect time to get involved and perfect place but she (a woman) screwed it up - so yeah they can.

My wife golfs with me so for the most part she is cool about me playing all the time. It is only my boss that screws up my game with his phone calls while he thinks I am supposed to be working.

Ask Tony Romo what a woman can do to your game.

Ha. No, seriously, though... If golf is more of a mental game than a physical game, than anything that gets in your head can mess you up. And what can get in your head more than a woman? They usually know every button to push.

Was halfway through a very slow round the other day and was supposed to be meeting herself for dinner, rang her and said what time did she wanna meet at that I was gonna leave golf now because it was gonna take another 2 hours before we were finished. She just said finish the game and that she would make me dinner. (And she meant it). Was in shock all evening.

I have a friend that I grew up with that his new woman has completely ruined his game, and pretty much his life as far as I am concerned. Controlling, vindictive s1ut. Really makes me sad. Personally, being a relative newlywed of 1.5 years by wife honestly does not care when I play. Which must be kind of strange, all the guys I play with cannot believe she does not get upset as much as I play. I have never been from the school of having to spend every waking second with the other person, so it isn't strange to me.

Yes girls do screw up your game.....LOL

I played high school golf and junior tournaments a lot between the ages of 13-18. I had aspirations of playing college and national amateurs. I was about a 4 handicap. At about 17 I really was pursuing chicks and found myself missing the junior Gateway PGA events or being tired because I was out all night. I was also kicked off the high school team because my grades were horrible, mainly do to the fact of being immature and only caring about having fun. I went to a "college prep" school so you had to have a 2.0 to play sports. Not me..haha.

Well I started dating a chick when I was 18 and got my shit together education wise. Never had time for golf or cared. I graduted 4 years later. At that point I regained focus for golf and have been back playing for 2 1/2 years. My game is back to where it was at, if not better. I dont regret ditching golf to have fun. Some people can do both, I could not. I blame it on being immature, rather fully because of girls. Girls are just one aspect of having fun and I am sure someone could manage it all.

So I ditched golf for girls...got married to the girl I ditched golf for...Now, have the girl and play golf every weekend...

So I guess it all works out in the end LOL

I am single and I'll hang out with girls alot.
It's funny what one of my best friends said. He told me that the way a round of golf goes will determine how I feel with the ladies. If I'm swinging nicely and sinking some putts my confidence with girls is at a huge high. However if I'm sucking I lose a lot of confidence and I'm a failure with the ladies.

    • 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
