  1. I'm the OP, and just wanted to add that it appears several of the posts on this page 3 are questioning my thoughts and character, which is fair enough when a guy starts a thread like this, but it also appears the writers of these recent posts did not read my follow up on page 2, which might have given the newest posters some insight on my latest thinking.
  2. I almost always walked, except for scrambles I played in, until two years ago when I had a rather complex left ankle surgery that begins to pain me after walking a few holes and hitting enough golf shots. So in my early 40's now, I'm shifting to riding carts, and in my case, I don't think I should feel guilty or ashamed about riding when there is an injury or arthritis or something similar involved. Before, I felt kind of funny on those occasions when riding, and always thought I should be walking, but not anymore.
  3. Well, these are fair questions. My career is going pretty good and I'm in a decent financial position, when compared to much of what the middle class is going through all over the country, so I am thankful for that. I'm not wealthy by any stretch. My wife and I drive paid off vehicles that are 11 and 12 years old, but we'll still be paying on a house for the next 15 years. My oldest son joined the army and is leaving in about 6 weeks for boot camp, so Uncle Sam will take over caring for him, which frees up some money. I'm not mechanically inclined at all, or have any type of constructive skil
  4. "To the OP: I hope something that someone said in this thread helps you enjoy the game more." I actually gained a lot from the many thoughtful responses. I appreciate all of your feedback, even the guy who called my post a big whine, which I guess it kind of was in a sense...LOL. You guys have provided some very interesting perspectives on the game of golf, much of it I really enjoyed and needed to hear. Thanks again for participating in this great golf site and taking the time to type to help out a complete stranger get some new ideas in his head.
  5. You guys have made some good points, and asked some questions I should respond to when I get a chance, but I have to go to work...work the midnight shift (maybe that's my problem!).
  6. I dabbled in golf with my dad as a teenager, but didn't get serious about it until my mid 20's. I'm in my early 40's now, and I am at a point where I am really reflecting on whether or not the time and money I pour into this game is a worthwhile endeavor. I have all the shots in golf but rarely put them all together in a complete 18 hole round. My scores average from the high 70's to low 80's, and it doesn't seem I get much better or worse, regardless of the amount of time I spend practicing, because I always seem to have 2 or 3 "key" horrible shots that lead to disastrous scores on those hole
  7. You can call someone fat and ugly, which might be true, but you're still disrespecting them. The point is, to actually announce to reporters you just whipped the entire field with something less than your A game, while probably true, is still disrespecting the entire field by pointing that out. I make this point just to counter the idea that Tiger has never disrespected another player, because he has.
  8. To the guy who has twice now commented that Tiger has never disrespected another player, I'd like to remind everyone how Tiger disrespected the entire field of golfers a number of years ago when he won one particular tournament, and proclaimed afterward that he didn't have his A game that week. I'd call that disrespecting everybody in one sentence.
