I'm not REALLY looking for advice, as no sane person would actually suggest neglecting your livelyhood for a hobby. I know the answer is to get my head out of the sand and put this game back in perspective, but I'm truly ate up w/ it. I own my own business & it's fairly successful. I have surrounded myself w/ smart, talented employees that I trust. And, honestly, I deserve to be able to get out once a week or so & play. That's not been the case lately though. For the past month or so I've been like a drug addict. I go to the range every morning for an hour before I go into my office. I've been showing up sweaty & disheveled. I then "before I get started" Google swing flaws or techniques that I want to work on. I work for a few hours & at lunch, I'll go back up & putt. Then, I'll go back to work, but on my way home at the end of the day, I'll stop by and play a lightening speed 9 hole round w/ a cart (that usually ends in frustration). Add to this the fact that I haven't said "no" to playing golf with a friend or customer in I can't remember when. And, quite honestly, I'm exhausted. My shoulder hurts, I'm sore, I feel like I'm getting carpel tunnel syndrome, yet here I am at 10:30 posting this dumb golf story on a golf blog. I think the worst was the other day when I told my wife I was taking out the trash at like 11:00 pm, 15 min later she "caught me" recording my golf swing in the garage. It was as if she had walked in on me masturbating. I threw my 9 iron into the corner and sulked in w/ my head down, face red w/ embarrassment. Anyway, I'm feeling incredibly guilty. It's just a damn game & I have a business that demands my attention. Yet, I actually caught myself daydreaming about selling my business and getting a job as a starter. What is wrong w/ me?!?!?!?
