I try not to play more than 7 days a week, except leap years when I cheat
if it is warm enough on Feb. 29.(??)
"Dr. Pepper" golf works for me (10-2-4), but I have to rush the "2" however.
Unfortunately, all my playing partners either have jobs or wives that disallow mid-day golf.
Any one up for a nooner?

how much do you guys usually pay monthly for a membership?

You're 16, and thus a junior, so please look up other threads on this very topic rather than diverting this thread. Thank you.

7 days a week. Unless it rains...Usually at least once a week I'll go 36, and at least twice a week I go 27...and usually once a week I go to the range.

I usually go to the range 3 or 4 times a week and play at least once or twice. This week I was able to play 5 days. It's hard to juggle family (3 kids), work, golf and running. Somehow I found time to play 81 holes and run 27 miles this week.

How do you guys play so much???? Are you all single and unemployed? I have a wife and 3-yr-old twins, a full-time job, and go to school part-time. Twice a month if I'm lucky!

I agree.....I get to swing the clubs once a week, maybe twice. I either get to the range or play on Sunday's. Once in a while I get to hit range balls on Saturday or Monday too, but that's once a month.
But I did build a trainer swing club for my idle time at work. So when I'm taking break or just in lull time I swing this steel pipe I made to help me get my arms to drop instead of my old out to inside swing. If that counts then I swing that every day at work.

For me the only way I can play as much as I do is to keep my clubs in my car. That way I can bust out of work an hour early and still not be too late getting home. Plus I married a country club brat. She thinks I'm supposed to play golf. She wasn't as understanding when I was shooting trap and skeet 2 or 3 nights a week until 10 or 11.

    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.  
    • I will be competing in a 4-club tournament in a few weeks. I'm leaning toward the following choices: 3-wood -- I usually hit it about 215 but I'm hoping to choke down and swing easier to hit it under 200 6-iron -- for all shots 90 yards to 160 sand wedge -- for all shots under 90 yards  putter -- I don't think I could putt with anything else. I personally think this should be required in order to protect the greens, but that is not the case.  Any thoughts on different or better choices?   
    • Day 510: Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements.
