I hate playing nine.  I only play nine if it's holes 19-27.

I hate playing nine also, it just feels like a tease to me.  Playing in the league was just an opportunity for a little more golf each week, not a substitute for my other (18 hole) rounds.  I'll take every bit of golf I can get, even if it is only 9 holes - but if I have a choice, I'm playing 18.

One of the reasons the league was only 9 holes is that for afternoon tee times here in the summer, you're looking at temperatures between 110-120 degrees.  It was routinely 114-118 degrees at tee time from July through early September.  Not many golfers will stick out 18 holes in that heat, but 9 is bearable for them.  A few of my buddies and I have been known to tee it up for 18 holes midday when the starting temp was 119 degrees (and got up to 124 by the time we finished), but a league of 4-6 golfers wouldn't be much of a league. :-) Playing 18 holes in that kind of heat is pretty draining.

If you don't play 9 holes after work, I'd say you're a non-golfing weekend warrior.

Yep, that's me...       Although I do play a 9 hole "mixer" on Fridays.  It's a quick 9 hole best ball tournament for $20...  does that count?

I still think I'm a weekend warrior lol...  proud of it too!

If you drink to get smashed every time you are on a golf course, you're a non-golfer.

I would say you are an alcoholic more than a non-golfer.

Then again some of us loosen up after a few too many!

Getting smashed on the golf course in the summer time is a bit too rough. Now a bit of whiskey when its really cold is different.

QFT. I rarely drink beer when golfing but I agree with whisky in the fall!

Well, some people do refer to alcohol as "Swing lube" or "Swing oil". :-)

I'm not averse to having a couple beers while playing - but much more than that and my game starts going downhill quickly.

Any golfer that requires a "Swing Lube"...........is a non golfer.

In no way under any circumstances, is being under the influence of drugs or alcohol going to improve ones golf game!!   This game is tough enough to play well sober, let alone with a buzz!!!!!!    Those who believe they play better "IMPAIRED".....don't know about what they speak.  They're just drunks......I suppose.

I know a guy that drinks 6 beers per 9 and stays well "lubed". He shoots a 1 over Consistently and takes the game seriously. I would say that everyone's approach is different, if your more concerned about the beer than the golf, that differentiates you from being a golfer and a drinker!

When it comes to substances, everyone is unique. Certainly most people don't benefit from drinking alcohol, but some people are alcoholics who need to drink in order to feel normal. For that person, drinking probably would improve their game (at least in the short term).

Nobody would say that smoking cigarettes leads to better golf in general, but I know for a fact that it helps me settle down after a bad hole.

Then again, I'm a non-golfer per this thread at least 10 times over.

True, not everyone is affected the same way by substances. Some people are a mess when they're drunk, I just get awesomer.

Then again, I played with one golfer recently who kept drinking, got completely wasted, and was hitting 12 - 15 shots per hole by the time we got to hole #12 or #13.   He was slowing down the group & putting multiple balls in tall grass/OB/hazard areas but insisting on kept playing.   His partner has to keep telling him to "pick up" the ball and move on.    I was feeling really uncomfortable ( I grew up with a family member whose behavior was very unpredictable when he was drunk) with all that drunken behavior but the guy was oblivious of his environment.

Moderate drinking - ok (I don't drink in the course, period.)    Getting drunk while playing golf?   He's a non-golfer for sure.

A guy I occasionally golf with plays off a 2 handicap.  He played college golf at a D1 school and can shoot low/mid 70s whether he's stone cold sober or falling down drunk (I've seen both).  He's definitely a drunk and most likely an alcoholic, but I'd have a hard time calling him a non-golfer.  But then again, most of the "non-golfer" talk on this thread is based upon individual pet peeves and doesn't amount to a hill of beans anyway.  A stranger on the internet calling you out as a non-golfer for whatever inane reason shouldn't matter much to anybody.

    • It's not that. It's very disjointed. Left hand a little strong, right hand weak.

    • Recorded some DTL swings after my round today. Need to figure out how to upload videos from the Live View Pro app on my tablet to youtube. I think the Live View Pro camera works great as a digital mirror, but video quality is pretty low on recorded swings, especially on downswing. I'll try to find the highest quality video and post it here. Will get FO view later this week, and may get DTL again using my iPhone.
