+ index golfers that didn't actually get there until after married w/kids and working full time. Seems like a very rare accomplishment. But I'd like to know about those that have done it.

I couldnt last in this marriage. I play 5 rounds a weekend. I could go down to 3, but not just 1.

I suppose I'd qualify, though I don't play often enough and my official handicap is probably at 0 or something.

Have your invested a huge amount of time practicing or have made sure that the time was spent on the right things? Nicklaus has often been quoted as saying that he did not practice near as much as others but relied on brief focused sessions. I think Gary Player said about his limited practice and play schedule that Nicklaus became a legend in his spare time. My point is that if you have the talent each time you reach a new level as long as you put enough time to maintain it, then when you do have some more time you will probably improve. If you take long periods completely off I think it would be really difficult to improve.

ill tell you after this year ;)

i am married, 2 kids (2.5 & 4 months) and i got down to a 2.9 this year
i play 4-5 times/week and practice as often

kidding aside i wont be a + this year (or maybe ever).... a 1 would be a good goal, or slightly better i guess

awesome question...having started 3 years ago, I find it a respectable task to achieve.

Its the one sad aspect of a golfers dream to become a tour pro. UNless your Ricky Fowler dont get involved too much with women that dont understand golf.

how do you guys manage so much golf? I ve 2 kids, self employed running a buisness, at the moment its dark here at 4 30 and pretty cold ( might get snow today) so if im lucky i might get to the range once a week! and can only play once at the weekend because of family commitments! ( Kids) Wish i could play more but there are not enough hours in the day! Only way i could get out there more is if i told the Mrs i was at work in the day and going golfing instead! Normally have to have the kids when im not at work!

My wife is a med student, so for the time being she is very encouraging about time on the golf course. My goal is a + handicap within the next 3 years, right before it's time for kids :(

best way to golf your a$$ off and still make a super comfortable living i am a Mortgage Broker, as as my previous post states, i golf 4-5 days a week (from April - Oct.) this is a typical day for me: 8am-drop kiddos off at daycare 9am-tee off (9 or 18 depending on the day) Noon-go to work, work until 4pm, 4pm-pick up kiddos from daycare or 7am-tee off 1030-go to work 4pm-pick up kiddos from daycare i dont golf on the weekends a tonne, maybe 2-3 Sundays a month my super busy times are usually march-May, Sept. -Nov. usually mid summer isnt as busy as the rest, so its prefect for me to get out not a scratch or + index, but one day ill hopefully make it!!hahahha!
