Good for you, it might be hard to get over this relationship for a little while but you can do it. Give yourself a new you as well. It might not be all him...do you need to lose a little swing weight? Try going to some different clubs. Whatever you do, don't pick up someone at the range. Those are just the rebound relationship type, probably would run into your x-out there anyway so don't put those on your bucket list. Try the 19th hole, try a few subtle statements like 'I'm not really into practice swings' or 'yeah, lining up putts, not this guy, unless they're over 6 ft.'... if they agree with you then maybe you can invite them over to your place sometime for a cup of coffee and   the Morning Drive on the Golf Channel. If they can handle that, they can handle anything. After that you can try playing a round together, and see how it goes. Maybe you can golf steady for a while before you're totally sure, oh, and make sure he knows right up front if you have any baggage...

Had a similar problem as some people take the game to seriously. I'm getting older and winning doesn't mean the same thing now. I need some peace and quiet out there to be able to think about my next shot.

I hope it ended well.  We tossed a guy this year whom we’d been playing with for over a decade.  He made playing golf feel like going to a job you hated.

We see him on the putting green, now, and he won’t even acknowledge us.  We did get all the mutual friends in the split.

I don't have the luxury of divorcing my regular playing partners. Although I do take a break from them time to time and play as a single.

it's hard to find partners that play a complementary game with yours, i,e, shoot similar scores, have similar parameters about betting, and play at a comfortable pace. I had to exit a group because a couple of the guys drank way too much and got unruly when drunk, especially when their game wasn't working.  Sometimes you just have to move on.  Good luck finding a new group.

Well it just had to be done, no bodys fault really.... these things happen.......it not you its me......
Had to tell my playing partner its over. We played our last round, went the bar, I looked long into his eyes and told him. Youre a great guy but we cant play golf together anymore.  There were lots of emotion but the bandaid needed to be ripped off. I told him life is too short for 5 hr rounds lining up 8 puts. Told him I deserve not having to watch his  six practice swings, the constant ball searching, the endless parade of people I have to let play through. I had to tell him that Im getting older and rounds were passing me by.  After some discussion of joint custody of the beer cooler and the alignment sticks, we parted quietly into the dark. I hope theres someone out there for me

What you need is some hot ball-on-hole birdie action to take your mind off of the breakup.

Are you referring to a “swinging threesome” ?
