Poll: Why don't you play more golf?
Posted 25 May 2017 - 12:21 PM
Golf is very important to me, but it has to come after family and career (which is also golf!), and I need to do a better job of creating time to play.

I try to sneak out when the younger 2 nap on the weekends. Weekdays are dead for me but I would rather be around to see them grow up than on the course. Sometimes my 7 year old wants to go sometimes not.
When the 3 boys are all old enough to play, I will have the best 4some going but until then......golf will always be there

I also don't like playing on soggy wet greens. Unfortunately there is just maybe four months a year where the weather collides to provide for nice fairways and quick and firm greens around here. In the spring it rains and in the fall I am hunting. Hard to fit golf in all the time with those wants.

I get to play 18-36 a week while not taking any time away from my family (they expect my evenings and weekends to be set aside for them).
I'll occassionally slip away for a sunday 9 or 18 with buddies while the kid naps though..
Baby #2 will be here soon though, and that'll likely change my priorities even more.

Currently I'm doing 18 Tue and Thu evenings, another 18 with my mate on Sundays and the occasional 9 or 18 on Saturday afternoon. I'm on vacation next week though so hoping to play 18 on Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri. I have a medal comp on Sat so I'll either have practised all the rough bits away or will be knackered
(*)That's 'quite hot' by UK standards, by the way

However, during the long South Florida summer, the extreme heat and humidity, (along with the rainy season and the bugs), prevents me from playing as much as I would like to even though it is much cheaper to play then. I don't handle the stifling 10AM to 4PM mid-day heat as well now as I could when I was younger, and having had several instances of skin cancer already, I must be especially careful with direct, intense sun exposures. I also finedit difficult to keep the sun screen on when sweating very profusely in the summer heat. Sadly, as statistics have shown, the weather is getting warmer every year now
Golf is supposed to be fun, but it isn't always fun during the summer's extreme heat conditions, and it's hard to play your best too. I find it best to get out very early in the morning before the temperature tops out, or alternatively going very late in the afternoon, (sometimes just for 9-holes). Lately, it's mostly been the latter.

No wife to b**** at me for playing too much golf. I almost married this woman about 10 yrs ago. And she started complaining that I play too much golf (once on the weekend), I dumped her and been single, can't stand when women try to control our lives.

If I'm able, I can see me playing a lot of golf in retirement.

When the time comes that I do not have to work (or at least not full-time) I would guess somewhere around 250 to 260 would probably max me out.
