might get a better response in the sports section.

i have a hate/hate relationship with golf. I've been playing casually for atleast the last 10+ years and I never get any better. It probably has to do withthe fact that I never practice, never go to the range, putting green, not even swing a club at the house, nothing. I am highly erratic and depending on the dayand the track I am playing, I will go out and shoot anywhere between 90-110+.

John Feinstein said it best. Golf to me is a good walk spoiled. Its more a means to an end. I like all the things that come with playing a round of golf. Thatis... hanging out with the fellas, enjoying the nice socal weather, drinking a 12 pack of beers, smokin a couple blunts, lightin up a nice cigar, and best ofall, goin out to grub afterwards... sometimes for free, depending on who won that day.

I am still waiting and hoping for my first ace. I imagine it will feel as fulfilling as the first time getting dome, or winning money on a lotto scratcher. Theclosest I came was hitting the damn pin and dropping about 1.5" away from the hole on a 160 yard Par 3. I couldn't even enjoy my birdie due to thefrustration of knowing that is probably the closest I will ever get to a hole in one.

man...... i sold all my golfing clubs and bags to pay some bills, smh


Many yrs ago, i was working for an insurance firm and my boss was big into golf. He showed me a few things and would take me out to play a back 9 and wouldstill pay me for missing work to join him.


and yes, golf is a good source of networking , just depends on who you know and who your buddy is.

I used to play in high school. Short game was very good. I didn't have good swing mechanics for driving/teeing off.

My short game > long game (no pun)

I can only drive 175-200 yards.

But you're right, golf is fun once you get the hang of it.


Truthfully, I haven't picked up a basketball since being introduced to golf.

If you don't understand it, chances are you don't watch the news, pick up a book, and/or are ignorant.

Didn't they get sued and can no longer make those? Aren't they going to be (thought they were?) out of circulation?

Yeah, they're great balls...the outter shell is softer than other balls, they feel great off the club head...
