Was golf your first love (sport)?

4 years hs basketball
3 years hs golf
2 years hs football
5 years college football
My dad actually bribed me to play football he bought clubs and a bag to play hs football. Worked out made all state then made 2nd team 1-aa all american. Football was ok but you couldn’t dominate like you could in basketball or be fully engaged like in golf.

As a result, I played little league and raced BMX until around age 12 until he, one day actually made me go hit golf balls with him. After that day, baseball mitt went into the closet and the bicycle became just a way of getting around.

Baseball then soccer then basketball then tennis... then golf. Now, golf only. Not bc I'm not interested playing the others. It's just that in my mid 30's now, I'm just a sad shell of my former athletic self in everything but golf.

We (our city) got a minor league hockey team when I was 15 or 16. When that came, there were a couple jr leagues that started as well and we also saw inline hockey pop up. Had this been around when I was younger, I probably would have played that as well. For a few years, hockey was a big deal here. Hard to believe South Mississippi had a good hockey base.

But my grandfather loved both golf & tennis...and gave my brother & i the opportunity to play both in the summers at his club - but we were mostly just fooling around
I took it serious enough to be on the HS golf team - since I was still just ~5'5" and 110 lb, so the other sports left me behind (esp football & basketball!)
But still wish I'd put a bit more effort into the game in my teens...

True love came at age 28. When I started golfing, thanks to my father in law.
7 years later. Love the game of golf like I never thought possible, and also play semi-competive hockey in a men's league during the long Canadian winters.
No bad days!

So I switched to tennis. Then I hated that you had to have a formidable opponent to have good matches, sustain rallies, etc.
Then I switched to golf and poker, where I never leave a round or session fully satisfied.
