    As a "Non-Golfer" This Is How I Spend My Time

    My passion is golf......he started bowling all on his own. I bowl now, but only because he got me started.

    As a "Non-Golfer" This Is How I Spend My Time

    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

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    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!!!!

    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!!!
  7. I average 290 from the tee with an 8-iron. I was playing with the Dalia Lama and he promised me enlightenment, so I've got that working for me.

    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. These properties are overrun, killing animals they raise.........doing my part to help.

    As a "Non-Golfer" This Is How I Spend My Time

    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

    I sit in bowling alleys watching my son compete most of my spare time.......... I have no regrets....I do miss playing golf, but I also enjoy watching my son thrive as he competes... He's only 15, and he's one of the top youth bowlers in the country.......this is his finishing off his 7th 300/perfect game in competition......a 15yr old kid..this is crazy. I figure that I will have the rest of my life to play golf....................for now, I don't play much golf. I am OK with this.......when I say "not much", I played only about 70+rounds in 2017.....this is like taking the year off by my standards......(playing 50% of the time) Every minute of my vacation time is spent traveling the country so he can compete...... He bowls in all the big national youth events....he holds his own and is one of the top kids to beat. Very proud of him......

Sunny and 60'ish is the forecast high tomorrow...I cannot miss that!!!! My son is busy doing what he does so golf is on the backburner... at least for tomorrow...I will play.

    Forum Profile Handicap Indices....

    down to 1.7 and I've only played about 60 rounds for the year...I usually play double this amount by Labor Day weekend. I am more than satisfied by my play. I am about ready to shut things down as I am a "non-golfer" now by my own definition. Looking forward to playing 3 days over labor day weekend, but I won't be playing much after. Watching my son compete doing his "thang".......this is my priority. Once he graduates, I'll get back at golf hard core...for now, I am going with the flow. I will never be as hard-core as I once was because I bowl in 3 leagues a week now. That certainly limits weekday evening golf for 35 weeks............LOL
