No worries and zero need to apologize. I didn't even take it as a jab. I just find very little that's uplifting about this game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Knock out a sleeve of Fig Newtons while watching ‘The Legend of Bagger Vance’. Then go shoot your best round in a long time.

IMO, as long as you're realistic, you don't need much talent to play this game at an enjoyable level. If you find the right group of friends, even smacking the ball OB can be fun!

But this game is not for everyone, so if it's really not bringing you any joy, no need to torture yourself.

Best of luck to you.

Indeed, and that's why I haven't played more than 5 rds in the last 30 years.

I'm back! My last post was April 2020?? Anyways, had to quit the game, got stuck in Germany, no flights, wife's cancer came back with a vengeance, given 6 months left to live, blah blah blah. Now she spends most days at Disney, going back to work next month, and I bought new clubs, and smashing balls into the intercostal on a daily basis. Its good to be back. One thing I have learned over the last 3 difficult years, enjoy what you have, it may be taken away. If you suck at golf, who cares, be thankful you are one of the people that can afford to play or have the physical capabilities to play. I found a great instructor who humbled me very quickly ( story of its own). I'm enjoying the game now more than ever.

Played a qualifying round for our Super Senior match play (65 and older) at around 6,050 yards. Got off to a good start but then got stuck in the trees on the par 5 third. After also hitting a shot into the water on the approach and three-putting, I carded a TEN! Instead of letting it get me down, I got my act together and shot 44-39-83 and qualified easily. That was three rounds ago and I have been playing my best golf in years since then.

    • Day 47 - Played 18 holes today. Was ok overall. The parts that I've been working on were solid, aka mid irons and tee shots. The parts I haven't spent as much time on (50-100yds) were garbage (shocker). Made 2 birdies but 4 doubles, got in some bad positions and tried to get too cute with recovery shots instead of taking my medicine and making bogey at worst. 
    • Day 104 (10 Jun 23) - Worked on swing tempo today - used 9i and PW - took time between to simulate approach to shot from elsewhere.  
    • I love this YouTube channel. Specifically the VFX reactions. It is interesting what movie makers could get away with pre computer generation and also motion control cameras. Some crazy shots can be done by just manipulating perspective with the camera.   
    • Day 222, June 10, 2023 Worked downtown after lessons for about 35 minutes or so. That's only about… 27 golf balls. I recorded one on the Casio because it was already out.
    • Just going back to what I need to do. Rehearsing it slowly. Hands went out a little more than I want here, but otherwise… not bad. If you look you can see how my left wrist still palmar flexes after the little pump.
