You Know You're Addicted to Golf When…

When you start having clubs shipped to work because the wife complains, and then people at work start to notice.

You buy, sell, then re-buy, then re-sell the same club -- just to be sure (I did this with the Nike SUMO2 driver after forgetting how bad it sounded).

You put a wear mark in the carpet from indoor chipping (hasn't happened yet thankfully).

You get one club that you decide is a keeper and then you have to re-arrange at least 2 other bags as a result of the addition.

You're out on your back porch in the dark at 5:30 AM changing the swingweight on your 5 iron  because you've got a tournament in 3 days, and you just had a revelation that MAY add 5 yards to your distance. They say that admitting you've got a problem is the first step in curing it.

The 19th Hole is your favorite Sports Bar. You just got to be around golf as much as possible.

You know you're a golf lunatic when you're in the pro shop on a course you've never played before and are admiring a $13,000.00 set of Honma Beres clubs that you just know would improve your scores and are wondering how to get the wife convinced, too....  😉

That's beyond lunacy!

When you are in the process of buying a new car and the first thing you check is whether your clubs and push cart fit in the trunk.  Otherwise you can go no farther.

Who would do such a thing? :whistle:

That's so true!  Why I ended getting a 4 door pickup.  It hauls a foursome for a long golf weekend in comfort and zero issues with storage space.

My personal faves from an earlier thread.....

You regripped your bbq utensils with cord grips...

Your wife asks you if you want to play around and you go get your clubs out...

What's crazy about that? First thing I look at.

    • Played a nearby muni course today.  Last time there - holes 15-17 were underwater (drainage issues) so we were not able to do a full round.  Today the course was back to normal and funny thing, fairways were dry and the ball loved to roll out!  The fronts of the greens were mush, plug the ball sticky.  Made for approach shots at the front of the green tricky because too steep a landing and you were rolling no where.  For a guy who just starting to consistently shoot in the 90's it made attacking the greens more challenging.  Keep thinking about how in LSW, to aim for the big area of the green and not hunt flags.  To be honest, I had a blast with the 50* wedge as I was putting the ball exactly where I saw it landing.  Overall - cannot complain shot a 96 (48/48), gold tees (translates to around 6100yds).  Only one triple, NO SNOW MEN!, but way too many doubles to overcome.  All in all drives were some of my best ever, with them either being on fairway or just off enough the S20 saw them as in the rough.  That's okay.  Not a bad day putting, still had some 3 putts but it was me not the putter or the greens which were reasonably fast.  Would love to play this one again soon, its just over an hour away so not too bad a drive.  Thinking about taking the missus there as she is saying she is ready to go play a round.   
    • Estimated total cost not including travel and food? Can be a wide range
    • I feel like I am very close to a semi-repeatable swing, so I plan to continue my Evolvr work through the winter.  We've made some great progress that is allowing me to hit the long clubs much, much better. I had been losing 6.5 shots a round to a scratch golfer in my ability to get off the tee and approach the green and haven't played much really since 2017. I don't have any disillusions about getting to scratch at this point in my life but a sub 5 golfer should be very attainable in the future.    
    • Will do guys, just need to get it out there to make sure we give everyone who is interested enough notice. I will probably be booking the Sand Valley tee times well in advance of the date.
    • I'd like to be kept in the loop on this. That's only 3 hours from my folks house. I haven't seen them since this who COVID thing began. If the COVID thing has left us by then I'd be interested in possibly doing a grandparents visit/golf trip.  Way too early for me to commit to anything though.
