If the weather cooperates at all I try to play twice a week.

I used to play almost every single day (whether the weather cooperated or not) and from daylight to dark on any day I didn't work. I had a cover and a heater in my cart and could play in almost any weather except for the occasional snow we get here in Alabama.

I was obsessed with wanting to consistently shoot even par on our par 72, 68 course rated course. Just about the time I got to that level I had to drop my membership for financial reasons and pay to play twice a week at another course where they gave my family a good deal.

I had to lose the obsession and learn to be somewhat satisfied with shooting in the mid-seventies twice a week on a par 70 course that is not course rated but would probably be about a 65 if it was.

Occasionally everything clicks and I can go pretty low now, but not very often.

I try to play 2-3 times a week. I envy people who can play everyday.

Young retiree here - ex-military - in FLA so I can get out 2-3/week......I play an equal amount of tennis so I'm having a hard time balancing the two.

I try to get out on the practice area (short game/putting or range) on days that I don't get out to play.

Since joining my first golf club on the 1st of March Ive played 5 times and over the Easter school holidays Ive got 3 rounds and a lesson in the books for Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Will try and get out 3 more times over the holiday (family permitting) otherwise Im trying to play at least once a week with a couple practice sessions thrown in between.

Once per pay check, so twice a month or so. But if the weather cooperates 4/6 & 4/7 going out to the NAVY Base. 18 in the morning, 18 after lunch each day, both days! Great stuff.

Did I mention another two inches of Snow for tomorrow? RATS!!! Just put the snow blower away last night!

I've seen the Grounds keepers out working at the local courses, doing every thing except placing the flags.

Like NASA says: 10,9,8,7,6, (This is where I am), 5,4,3,2,1, TEE OFF!

I play at least once a week, 52 weeks a year. Half the year I'll play a 2nd round in a week. I'll probably play 80 rounds this year.

Over the course of a year I will play around 110-120 times (18 holes) which works out to around 3 times a week.  When the weather cooperates in SE Michigan it is closer or slightly above 120 and when it does not cooperate (like this year) more like 100-110.

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
