Plus, don't you know, showing emotion adds wrinkles and makes you look older!!

I'm ethnically Chinese, so no. I'll look like this until I'm 70 ;-)

Well, here's a couple. One from the courthouse after the ceremony with the kids and one from the beach in Puerto Rico.

cmon man....better let her out of there!

I got married about a year ago, and first my ring felt weird so I took it off in the car before playing.  But I like it, and like to wear it, so after a month maybe I started wearing it again.  It did

I'm a lefty with and inter-locking grip, the wedding ring can't happen. I bought a Qalo ring online for 40 bucks... it is a silicon rubber ring. I wear it all the time now... my wife is not thrilled.

As some of you may know, I recently got married. I had not had the opportunity to golf or go to the range since that day until yesterday after work. There was some annoyance/discomfort while golfing with my ring on and that made me wonder if this is a common issue that other people go through. If you have had a similar issue, what did you do to resolve it? Hopefully the answer isn't remove the ring, because I had already lost the first ring while we were in Puerto Rico on the beach and the possibility of losing it again.... Well, let's just say the consequences aren't exactly good.

If it's just annoyance then +1 for ... 'you will get used to it'. It's weird if I don't have it on.

I don't see why you can't take it off and put it on a string around your neck or something?

Lost and found mine 2 times while rock climbing, then once when I was carrying my son and it fell off my pinkie finger when he was playing with it. This was 15 years ago, now both my wife and my rings are in a safety deposit box.

This is an issue I had before, also.

It was easy for me. Pre-golf routine is to take it off and put it through the carabiner clip on my truck keys and put my keys in my golf bag.

My wife knows I take my ring off for 2 things: I'm golfing, or I'm running long distance. She understands. 

As with your phone, wallet, sunglasses, and keys in general the number one thing that works for me (and a lot of people) is to only put them in a limited number of exclusive places. My keys are either in my pocket, in the ignition, on the key hook, or in my golf bag. I NEVER set them anywhere else. I reduced the times I lose any of these items by about 99% since starting this routine. Knock-on-wood but I haven't lost any of these items in probably 5+ years. 

I've had a pair of sunglasses that I've used almost every day for 10+ years now lol! Still haven't lost those things.

Congrats!  :beer:

I am a very forgetful person so if I took it off I am certain I would lose my ring. Therefore I have learned to play with it. I would rather play without even after close to 10 years playing with it on. But I don't think it makes a difference in my score one way or the other.

I don't wear a necklace, so I am pretty sure having something around my neck would throw me off too. That's why I mentioned that if I wore a necklace I would put in on there while golfing.

I don't wear my wedding ring when I golf.  I put my keys, ring, watch, and wallet in one of those velvet bags with the drawstring that Crown Royal comes in (pic attached) and take out my ball mark repair tool and marker clip.  I put that bag in the lined valuables pocket of my golf bag.

I do that every time so I know exactly where it is.  Had many occasions before I started doing this where I had panic moments looking for one of the above items.

Many moons ago when I was first married, I wore a wedding ring.   I took it off to golf, it didn't feel right holding a golf club.   Soon after, I almost lost a finger in a manufacturing plant where the ring got caught in a machine.   I have never wore a ring since. 

I would take mine off to rock climb, and then on the weekends for jumping.  And then forget to put it back on the other days except when the wife reminded me.  And I knew a guy also that had his finger stripped of skin when his ring caught on a truch gate driving away.

I'm just not used to wearing it at all.  I'd find it very uncomfortable while holding a club  It lives on my key ring 100% of the time now.

Yes, the wife is very understanding.

I wear my wedding ring and also a signet ring on the right hand. Neither bother my while golfing nor do I wear a glove. In fact, trying to play with a glove on bothers me. 

Anyway, the wedding ring has been on so long (40 yrs) that it would have to be cut off. It will not go past the knuckle. The signet ring is getting to a similar condition, it's been on since '93,

If you leave it on you'll eventually get used to it. If I were to take it off now it would feel weird to play without it.

Yes, same here.  It's a complete non-issue.  Wear it during all sports, including karate, showers, to bed, just all the time.

The only time I ever take mine off is when I'm fiddling around at work thinking "hmm, I wonder if I've gained too much weight again such that it's stuck?" or on occasion when I have a brain freeze and temporarily forget the exact date so I have to peek at the inscription on the inside. (Will also work if I ever forget my wifes name ... or my own) :-P

I think she's going to figure it out when your anniversary card says, "To my loving wife, Andrew."

I just wear my ring. Always have. I don't wear a glove, though, which helps.

Same here.  I worked in a machine shop for 33 years and couldn't wear either a ring or a watch for safety reasons, but they always went back on as soon as I left work.  Now that I'm retired, they never come off.  I wear both 24-7.

    • My school just announced similar last night:  masks for all, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on campus, with some exceptions like if I'm alone in my office.  Students who plan to return for the fall term must either be vaccinated or have an "approved exception or medical exemption," although that's been announced for a while.  Tomorrow is four months since I got my second shot, so I'm good to go as far as that goes.
    • My wife has a cousin whose wife is completely off the rails.   I mean it’s a planned pandemic, micro chips and Bill Gates are behind it….or worse.   She has had so many posts taken down on FB for the misinformation and crapola that she spreads.   She, albeit briefly, was posting about how the vaccine gets in your blood and makes you magnetic.   So yes, she believed that you could stick keys to your head because of the vaccine. kind of makes deluding yourself you can make that forced carry (when you can’t) seem sane….
    • The anti-vaxers have a ton of excuses.  I have heard many of them.  I have an unvaccinated friend (yes, I even have stupid friends) who quite often "cherry-picks" articles from alternative publications that support his view and he texts them to me.  Anything to support a bad habit.  Smoking is good for you...
    • It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.
    • Birdied #16 at Quail Brook today. Pulled my drive onto the 15th tee box and got to my ball where a couple of my friends were waiting to tee off, ready to heckle me. Had about 90 yards to the flag and hit a partial GW to 2'. The ball mark was 2' short of the hole from where I was and the ball ended up 2' past it. I don't know if it had a chance to go in; it probably took a hop and spun. I would have never heard the end of it if I didn't hit a good shot there.
