That was a pretty matter-of-fact celebration there.

Also, he has one in league the previous day!

I can’t get over 70+ rounds per year being a light year.  Don’t think I’ve played 70 rounds in this century. 

Congrats to your son!

No kidding.  I’ve played 2 rounds in calendar year 2018, and 24 in the past 12 months.  I think my best years I’ve almost got close to 40 rounds but never beyond.  (I’ve played 6 rounds since Newport Cup)

Just think how good he'll be once he can actually drink beer while he's bowling, as the game was intended to be played! ;-)

Cool! My kids are a bit older and already in college or effectively there. I do shooting and archery other times.

Are there any pros  that hold it like that?

Possibly? However, he's still just a kid using a pro weight ball judging by the way the pins explode upon impact.

I understand completely, my daughter plays on a ultra competitive AAU Basketball team. They play almost every weekend. We travel all over the place, and my golf has taken a back seat to her basketball. I don't miss it though, I would rather watch her play basketball than play golf any day. This is what I do every weekend:

I play guitar, exercise/brodoyouevenlift, and watch YouTube videos of cyst popping/gym fails/earwax extractions/chiropractic ASMR with hot chicks/, and MMA highlights.

i LOVE the game, but I spend most of my time supporting my son with his competitions these days.   I have no regrets and I am having the most fun ever, but I'll be back!!   He's 16... in a 2-3 years, I'll have the rest of my life to play golf.   My golf count for 2018: 36.5 rounds in 2018.  This is the fewest I have played since I took up the game in the early 90s.  I've played over 100 rounds per year from 1991-2016.  Last year was my decline...77 rounds played.  

I quit my golf membership, but only because the new GM and I don't see eye to eye.....  I will play next year, but it will be minimal like this year.   I have picked up a small hobby on the side, but this has nothing to do with my lack of golf play. I know a few land owners with coyote problems....and I like shooting coyotes.  So I do this from time to time..  I also paid way too much for a SubZero Callaway driver this year... for a guy that plays under 40 times a year, this probably could have waited...LOL

100 degree days...no big deal... I've harvested coyotes during a time of year, they are ghosts......I swear the bugs are bigger in the country..LOL.

this is the crazy part...I got down to a 2.6 index playing 36 times.  Higher than normal, but I really didn't play that much!!!

To what end?

Perhaps our society tends to put children on a pedestal and almost worships youth? I have 4 grown children and have seen the phenomenon first hand. What is a child to do when they are grown and the world stops revolving around them?

No, the guy was a troll. Nothing more.

The term "harvest" strikes me as funny here. 

Looks like you harvested the $#^@!! outta that one though.  SOB's are all over down here, too.  Can hear them yipping and yowling in the orange groves often. Anything to keep their numbers in check, but like you said, they are very good at not getting harvested. LOL

LOL...yes, I use a .308 and it works pretty well.  I hunt on private lands and the land owners want them gone.  I don't try to save the pelts or anything like that....  I move them out of the way of farm equipment so bones don't get jammed in the combines.  

 

Funny sidenote.... I put the above Coyote in a very specific spot along the edge of a field in a fence line to get it out of the way............I walked past that exact spot 2 weeks later and there was no sign of it.  Usually coyotes will eat it up and leave a few bones.  I looked in a 20yd radius.....there was not a single bone to be found....it was gone.  Just drag marks.... I didn't expect that!!!!

I am definitely a "non-golfer"..........remember that thread?  I don't play golf anymore......(by my own standard)

i've been playing much less golf because I travel the country for kid reasons.  I am Ok with this...my yountest is 16 and my time is limited.  I will soon be an empty nester and have my entire life to play golf.  My home golf club recently was bought out, and I had an issue with the new GM....we had a falling out, and I quit my membership.  For the first time since 1996....I don't have a golf membership!!!!  Because of my sons heavy travel, I don't plan to buy a new membership in 2019.  I plan to "WING" it and play public golf..................oh boy! I am looking forward to it because it's been awhile since I have made the rounds so to speak!!!  I am actually looking forward to playing all the good courses I have not played in awhile.....I played fewer than 50 rounds in 2018 due to travel.  (definite/non-golfer)  Plus I quite my membership in August...that didn't help! I still got my index down to 1.8 although that was a season low and I finished higher.

This is how I spend this weekend........in a bowling alley...LOL
