He said "Hit a slump in the game last month…" so you kind of have an idea how long a break he took, no? :-)

An idea.

You can hit a slump, struggle for awhile and then stop playing. The only thing that answers was that it wasn't any longer than a month.

For what it matters.

Going to be around a full month now.

A month is nothing. I stopped all golf stuff for about 5-6 months just because it was getting kind of boring.

At this point, I've been back at it for a couple months and enjoy much more than if I dragged on playing.

Do other things in parallel to golf. Golf is fun when you look forward to playing. It's not work!

I have said this before, but I don't think folks give up the game. They give up on themselves, playing the game. 

Take an extended break from the game. Start again fresh when you are ready.

A lot of people quit playing for a little while or sometime a long while. You can't really force yourself to love something. I'm sure there is something that is making you lose the drive to play if you really think about it.

One additional thought, one of the things I have started this summer was buying a pushcart and walking more often. I don't walk every round, but I will say that getting out of the cart has made me enjoy the rounds more. I have a regular group where we all walk and the ability to chat as we walk to our balls makes for a much more enjoyable round. And keep in mind, I am playing in Texas where it is HOT, but it is still enjoyable. 

Look for ways to add some additional value to your round other than just "score". For me, it's a little bit more exercise and a lot more pleasant conversations. Score seems to take care of itself from there.

Thanks all. Been having a think the last day or so and realised the moment I decided I'd had enough. Played a course which is usually the easiest in the area and had a nightmare on it. Maybe I went into it a bit too cocky and it backfired on me and carried forward to a few rounds after. At least I've identified it now I guess!

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
