How old are we talking here ... old as in having kids and taking on responsibility, or old as in joints are seizing up and major organs are failing.

Cuz the first kind of old is a passing phase.

I'm on this kind of old and I'm lucky if I get to even play once a month. 2012 looks more dismal in terms of golf since we're expecting another baby in March. Can't wait till this phase passes.

Well, in my case it's a matter of going from working in a retail sports store where you come in later some days and get off early others to a real 9-6 job. I get to on the weekends but that's pretty much it. It's the reality of life i guess ha.

less than once a week -- usually 2 or three times a month.

I hit the range about once a week too.

...and I'm of the 15-month-old-at-home-and-another-on-the-way sort of old *AND* I'm of the my-ankle-gives-out-on-me-for-no-particular-reason-(old soccer injuries)-and-I-can't-walk-for-a-week-every-two-or-three-months sort of old too.

I don't expect to play too often in 2012 - maybe average twice a month.

Golf isn’t going anywhere.
Enjoy the time you can spend with your kids.
I essentially gave up the game for 13 years while my kids were young and I have no regrets.
Reading to my kids while they sat on my lap still outranks any golf memory I can come up with.

Yes, I love spending time with my newborn son. I read to him almost every night and enjoy watching him grow. I don't mean to sound like I enjoy golf more than my family.

Agreed.  I too took about 10 years off, and just got back into golf (once or twice/week) last year - kids are now 11 and 8.

I know what you mean, and a couple of posts sounded "bad" about parenting, or being a father, as a phase, but I don't think it was meant as bad as it sounded.  At least I hope not.

Raising kids is more important than playing golf, but we're still people and so are they. My wife and I do without some things in order to raise good kids, just like all middle class parents do, but you don't have to be a martyr in order to be a good parent. If you choose to focus completely on them and do things other than golf, that's great,  but if golf (or whatever your favourite hobby is) doesn't even remotely fit into your life just because you have children, don't blame your kids. Our kids have learned (and will continue to do so) that mom and dad are people too. We have interests and hobbies just like they do.

In the winter usually once a week and the rest of the year 3 or 4 times a week. This year I've been lucky since it been a mild winter and my new job has flexible hours I've been playing twice a week.

yesterday was my last round of the year (didn't get above 28°F - only bad part was the greens were frozen at mid day & lob shots bounced 8 ft in the air & rolled off the green - not much fun).      I started in late April, and logged 75 rounds this year.     That averages out to just over 3 days per week over the 8 month season.     This was my "catch up" year - not sure I'll be able to maintain that pace in the future & continue to enjoy marital bliss ...

For me, how much I play is more weather dependent than work/life dependent.  I teach in the public school system and get off most days at 3:30 pm.  My home course is about 10 minutes away from work as is the course where I have a range plan.  Here in Eastern NC, most winters it is warm enough to play year round although last year at this time we had 13" of snow on the ground.

All of that is to say that I can get out there a few times during the week for practice or to walk a few holes and during the summers when I am not teaching, I'll play 5 or 6 times a week if I want to.  At one point last summer, all twenty scores I had in the handicap computer were from July.

I plan on playing once on the weekend once the local weather here warms up.  Right now in the DC area its been mild, but Jan and Feb are usually non-playing months (for me anyway).  I took a new job in September, which will not allow to play my usual 2-3 times per week like my old job.  I miss working right next to a golf course

This time of year, weather permitting, I'll play both Saturday and Sunday. During the summer along with the 2 weekend rounds I'll usually try to sneak in one after work round during the week. Being off work this week I'll get in 5 rounds.

    • That’s a solid post Erik. 
    • Day 505 - May 16, 2021 Played 18 holes of irons-only (hit one driver on 15) with Sculley. Really focused on some short game shots, too.
    • Seriously. Also, we saw your post earlier, @David in FL, but it's as dumb the second time as it was the first time. In addition to what Dan said above, here is another article from the WHO: The effects of virus variants on COVID-19 vaccines The text in bold is quotes from that article: The COVID-19 vaccines that are currently in development or have been approved are expected to provide at least some protection against new virus variants because these vaccines elicit a broad immune response involving a range of antibodies and cells. Hmmmm. How can we prevent future new variants of the COVID-19 virus? Stopping the spread at the source remains key. Current measures to reduce transmission – including frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, physical distancing, good ventilation and avoiding crowded places or closed settings – continue to work against new variants by reducing the amount of viral transmission and therefore also reducing opportunities for the virus to mutate. Scaling up vaccine manufacturing and rolling out vaccines as quickly and widely as possible will also be critical ways of protecting people before they are exposed to the virus and the risk of new variants. Why is it important to get vaccinated even if there are new variants of the virus? Vaccines are a critical tool in the battle against COVID-19, and there are clear public health and lifesaving benefits to using the tools we already have. We must not put off getting vaccinated because of our concerns about new variants, and we must proceed with vaccination even if the vaccines may be somewhat less effective against some of the COVID-19 virus variants. So the scorecard: Vaccinated people: Are nearly 100% protected from the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Are "somewhat" protected against every variant of COVID-19. Have a very low chance of catching COVID and an even lower chance of passing it on to someone. Are helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Dave's peeps: Aren't protected at all against the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Aren't protected against any variant. Have only a reduced chance of catching COVID-19 because other people are being good members of society and getting vaccinated. Are not helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Your "we don't know how the vaccine handles new variants" is a bullshit excuse not to get vaccinated because every vaccine out there is more effective against every variant than not getting vaccinated at all. You're being selfish while conning yourself into thinking you're being "prudent." Nobody would rationally define "prudent" the way you're choosing to. Nobody who understands the mountains of data out there. What you are calling "prudent" is what most may call "selfish."
    • If I got held up by a group of guys playing this in front of me….someone’s going home with a broken toy. Lol.
    • DAVID, MY ARTICLE BEATS YOUR ARTICLE. The most serious vaccine side effects in history have all been caught within six weeks, said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia and a member of the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.   Covid-19 vaccine myths: These reasons for not getting a shot don't hold up. In fact, they'll set the US back Here are some of the most popular arguments for not getting vaccinated and why doctors want to set the record straight.
