Calgal said:I love to golf and have for many yrs., just don't have many golf friends around here. Golf, for me, is like skiing, only because I love the gear and wish I could buy tons of it ! I could have a room full of golf and ski gear. I especially would like to collect putters and drivers. OH, and a collection of many different skis would be nice but so far I only have one pair....maybe it's time to get some new skis....hmmmm
Okay!I took golf lessons last summer! I'm hooked, but I refuse to talk about it until I put my skis away:p
I'll check back in the second week of April
You and I should play Best Ball. I can drive off the tee, chip okay, but my putting is the place I need the most work.Best prices of the season are now!
I attempt to golf, although the only part of my game that is decent is the short game - I can chip well enough and my putting isn't awful. Driving off the tee or from the fairway, now that's where I suck.
I also attempt to fish - however I guess I am succeeding at fishing, just not catching.
Of the hobbies I've picked up in the last 5 years my skiing is by far the most successful. Probably why it's the one I'm most addicted too!
Hybrids are my next acquisition!I dont have a hybrid club, but I do have a seven or five wood, (thats how long its being since I looked in the big bag) which can work as a fairway wood. If I am on form I putt reasonably well, but if not its truely terrible. Thats what lets me down most, so its just practice on a regular basis. I just get a big thrill from seeing that long ball go straight into the distance, even a straight 75 yarder with a pitching wedge on the short course feels good. Wish it happened more often. Your are right though, short course is good practice for more difficult part of my game.
I've found that I tend to not keep score (because to do so would be depressing!) but instead search for the good strokes.
Awesome!!!me too! I just started playing. I just finished up my lessons and bought a set so i'm committed now!
I LOVE to golf but hate the repetitive nature of the driving range....funny that we are sooo opposite in that departmentI'm a little odd when it comes to golf: I love the driving range. I like the cathartic repetition of hitting the balls, focusing and using muscle memory. For this reason, I batting cages, too. But, back to golf, I haven't been out on a course in well over 3 years. I've found that I tend to not keep score (because to do so would be depressing!) but instead search for the good strokes.
