You Know You're Addicted to Golf When…


Recommended Posts

There use to be joke circulating where the guy, when he woke up would ask his wife "golf course, or intercourse?" She would replay "I put your clubs in the car last night". The guy would reply "great, thanks sweetheart" and leave the house happy. That might show a bit of an addiction.

Me, I am now living 10 minutes from a quality golf course, and spend about 25-30 hours a week there trying to regain some lost form. . I even took my wife to lunch there a few times.

When people use the word "driver" in a conversation, and you realize not very quickly they aren't talking about the big stick, but an actual person driving something.

I was in the backyard practicing my swing this afternoon with the temp at 20 degrees and blowing snow. Does that qualify?  :whistle:

I do that sometimes

When no chandelier lamp stands a chance in your house.  Every stick like thing that gets in my hands broom, mop, etc gets a golf swing.

...when every time the word "putting" is read you pronounce it in your head  as what you do on a green and not the other use of the word. As in groceries away or kids to bed.

You know you're addicted when TopGolf becomes your favorite restaurant for date night.

They have pretty good food!  Unfortunately, to get into an actual hitting area, it's an average wait of an hour and a half to 2 hours, on a weeknight.

I enjoy going at lunch time.  Usually, no wait.  And, if you go early (say, 5:00), and stay for a couple of hours, the wait is minimal, in my experience.  I've only gone to the one off the 101 in Scottsdale.

I've only ever gone at lunch, and that's the one in Tampa.  It's relatively new, maybe a year old.  Hopefully the shine will wear off eventually!

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 15 yrs My current handicap index or average score is: 15.6 My typical ball flight is: medium The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice Videos:  https://youtu.be/eRtUwS51ouo https://youtu.be/8P_WTt72owI
    • I don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.  
    • Day 15.  After work, hit 8- and 6-iron shots for ten minutes (and about as many balls).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls. 
    • I'll keep that in mind, my Snells are also made in Massachusetts. But mine listened to me yesterday, sometimes.  I got fed up with a bad shot and it wasn't listening, so I told it to keep hooking and roll into the rough.  And it did! 
    • Their shipping charges are out of this world...I was going to order a 0211 wedge and shipping was $30.00..After deciding to get a lob wedge to match, the shipping changed tp $60.00 I just refuse to do that.... I can get a real good price on the 0211 driver
