Well, during the week (right now) I get somewhere between 9 and 18 holes in after work. Today, we got 18 in (starting at 6 PM) for the first time, and looking at the sunset calendar, we have about another 40 days of being able to do that this year. My day off during the week is Tuesday, when I play softball.

Weekends-if we golf, a buddy and I usually play 18 in the morning, eat lunch and watch a little TV in the bar, and then go out for another 18. Once summer cranks up and we are more fully into golf "shape", we'll do that both days on a weekend.

Once school is over, I'll probably play 9 early, go fishing or something, and meet up with my regular evening group for 18 more.

Being a bachelor teacher just barely allows me to afford a membership and gives me plenty of free time, so it works out well. My game is for crap for how much I play, but I took about 15 years off from the game and really just got serious about it last summer.

My buddies and I used to go out once a year and play dawn to dusk. I remember one year I had one of those glow in the dark golf balls and was using it because we were trying to finish the back 9 and it was getting pretty close to pitch dark.

Can't remember the most holes we've played. Our goal was to get in 72 holes but I don't think we quite managed that. Probably in the area of 60. Needless to say the scores were nothing to talk about.

The last time we tried this we only got in a couple of rounds because the course was so busy. We used to count on this particular isolated course to be pretty empty.

Funny thing is this was before I really started playing golf. I'd only play 2 or 3 times per year. I don't think my body is quite up to 50+ holes of golf in a single day anymore.

Walked 18 at Bethpage then 18 at a local muni. That was physically draining. Next time I do 36, I would most likely ride or borrow a push cart at least.

I'm jealous of you guys. I had some great golf summers the past few years but now I graduated college and I need to find some sort of job! I figure playing 36 holes of golf a day isn't really a good plan for my future, as much as I'd like to...

Not if you're a member! Most people are hesitant to shell out 2000$ to 4000$ all at once, but it pays for itself in the long run.

Ha. I heard that one. My parents just started to make me pay for my own golf stuff because I had a summer job last summer, and I didn't realize how much it sucks to play golf (wallet-wise).

I got the easy way out..

Yea, Im trying to convince my wife that the 670 membership at the local course is a good idea, especially since that is for the both of us.

Oh don't think I didn't apply to the course I live on. I did, but I don't think that they are going to hire me because they just hired about 5 new people at the course, all after I put in my application. Well, all I can do is try.

Played 34 this past weekend with range time before and then again for a short while after the 1st 18. I was at the course from about noon until 8pm. Gotta love those weekend days where the wife works afternoon/evening!

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.5 My typical ball flight is: big fade / slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice   Hey, I have a "my swing" threat on tst right after I started but it's now too old to update so I created a new one. Really interested in what you guys think. I'm working alot on my swing therefore I'm happy for every single tip especially if it straightens my ball flight. Thanks! Videos:     
    • How about The Reserve at Spanos Park?  Just north of Stockton right on I-5, that might work for timing?  In Sacramento, I also see Bing Maloney and Teal Bend both close to I-5. I wouldn't recommend making a detour towards Fresno - really no reason to lengthen a trip to get through there unless you planned on going to Yosemite or Kings Canyon / Sequoia as well.
    • What aspect of putting are you failing at?  For example, I can consistently do the ruler drill to over 80% accuracy (I often get 20+ to go straight out of 25).  Yet I'm a terrible putter, so lately I've been doing a "coin drill" at 4' and 6' (sometimes one or the other, sometimes one then the other).  I put 12 coins in a circle, approx equally spaced, around a hole, and try to make a putt from each coin.  I pick up the coin when I make one from there, and count total putts.  This gives a little bit for line and reading short putts.  I really should institute a penalty for myself when I leave one short from that distance. ESC also had a great drill from 12' or so:  pick a hole 12' or so from you (doesn't have to be exact), putt one ball to it.  Make it, give yourself two points.  Two-putt, and the first went past the hole?  No change.  Two-putt, first didn't get to the hole?  Lose a point.  Three-putt (or worse), lose 3.  See if you can get to 10 points. I guess I'm asking:  is it read, speed, or bead that you're struggling with?
    • Day 60.  Today was a good day for Shindig's game.   I was able to get to a course and spend some time on the putting green, including doing a 6' coin drill, completing it in 26 putts.   That's better than my target goal of keeping that under 30.  Of course, fewer is always better.  I also, later in the day, hit 30 chips with my 56 and 30 with my gap (U) iron, quarter shots all, indoors, real balls, off a mat, into a net, and managed a dozen slow, careful full 6-iron shots too.   If it seems that I'm prioritizing short game lately, you're right.  I have two tournaments in the next seven days, so I'm trying to do what I can in the short term to bring my score down by focusing on these.  Plus, let's face it, my short game is abominable anyway, so this isn't a bad thing long term either (although I do subscribe to 2/3 on long game, in general, of course).
    • Day 492: Something has not been feeling in sync lately, so decided to not do any "full" full swings today. Did takeaway drills in the mirror for 15 minutes, observing DTL and FO views to make sure I am getting to an okay spot at shaft parallel. Then did the same drill outside, and stopped at shaft parallel, and then when a bit further and kind of bunted the ball into the net. Did this for about 30 minutes with a PW, 7-iron, and hybrid.
