    Anyone Golf?

    I think I have played like 4 times in my life. Each time I end up giving up after the 4th-5th hole. This weekend for fathers day I went and hit some balls with my father.

    My dad and one of the pros corrected my swing and I was hitting consistently 275 on drives and straight. I switched to an iron and I was ehh but I think I might try playing more

    I love playing, but I suck. My best game was like a 97. Fun and challenging plus you can drink while doing it.

    I got ya by 2, I think I've played 6 times and I don't think I'm that terrible at anything else I've ever done in my life. I play once a year at a high dollar beach course at a guys weekend. I've doubt I've ever played past the front nine.....I've got lots of cool stories from those weekends but that's for another thread.

    Spent a lot time on with my dad, he don't play no more though. But he used to be a starter at course in myrtle beach so I got to play for free. Unless you play every weekend or couple times a week it's hard to get good. Dam fun game and being out in nature. Lol I play with my brother in law now, roflmao he is the club throwing type. Funny as hell when he is sucking.

    LMAO! Smart man! Nah, I am sure golf is fun. You call it a "gentleman's game," but I think it is a "rich man's game." Golf clubs are ****ing expensive. If I had more money, I am sure I could enjoy it. I don't like the bullshit dress codes that many clubs require since I don't believe in social etiquette either (that is an entirely different discussion). I would rather play free or cheap games and sports. I am still fairly young, so I can handle taking part in more physically exerting activities unlike some old guys *cough*zagga*cough*.

    Also I know people, including some friends, that golf. Many of them try to argue that golf is in the same league as sports like basketball, and it frustrates me. A lot of these guys never picked up a basketball or football, lol. The way you describe it though is exactly how I think of golf. It is a fun activity (if you can afford it) where you can relax and be outdoors. It is the same reason I enjoy fishing.

    I play for 17.00 at a nearby course at/after 4pm....with the card i buy for 29.00 which gives you one round for free and 10% off merchandise and IN THE BAR/FOOD

    im a huge tight wad and wont pay over 30 and barely will ever do that

    golf clubs (top name) clubs cost me 50 bucks ....got them at a yard sale from an angry wife...lmao

    find all my golf balls when i'm out playing ...got one of those telescopic ball snaggers u can see the balls at the edge of the ponds or 10 ft out where ppl cant retrieve them

    QUITE AFFORDABLE

    so you'll just have to work on the gentleman aspect

    LMAO! Well not all of us are lucky enough to buy a $50 club set. I guess I was only aware of the really nice clubs which are several hundred dollars apiece! I just did a quick search, and one can buy an entire set for around $150 which isn't TOO bad.

    Affordable or not, it doesn't change the FACT that golf is a hobby, not a sport. Now good day to you sir (see how gentlemanly I can be ).

    I am in NYC. I went to the range again this weekend. I cannot hit irons worth a shit. I keep coming over the top of the ball. I think I am going to take some lessons. My drives are massive and I am being told I am not even making the right contact with the ball. I am coming under a lil too much

    lessons would be better now than later if your a beginner as you may have to learn a whole new approach later if u wait and you may get better on your own even though technique may be poor

    consistency/accuracy driving it is prolly my worse but the whole game is in shambles lol

    i dont care enough to hit range balls either especially when they cost almost the same as i play 18

    Are you worse than Charles Barkley? Lmao, I love how much shit he gets from people. I never have seen anyone swing a club that God-awful.

    some holes i may score like chuck but there are signs of brilliance over the course of 18 as well....its just lack of consistency

    but i just dont have one facet of the game to point at/work on...inconsistent at putting, driving, chipping, short and long irons...

    its like a hail mary on each shot...but that makes it almost fun to me

    if i get good i will expect to be good all the time...lol

    i think chuck swings like he does for the attention..i find it strange for an athelete and wealthy to not have a fundamental golf swing

    LMAO! Well I question things all the time, but I just don't fall for too many conspiracies. Judge Judy is your inspiration, I see. That explains a lot, especially considering she can't speak English correctly. "It don't" and "ain't."

    It DOESN'T make sense that the Spurs lost Game 6 after being up 5 with 28 seconds left; yet sadly it is still true.

    Lmao. I officially hate you. Congratulations! Just because I made fun of Judge Judy doesn't (or should I say, "don't" ) give you any right to add insult to injury with that. I have had many heartaches with my Spurs. How easily the Spurs could have 7 titles right now if only a few things changed *sigh*.

    They say naturally athletic guys are the worst when it comes to golf. I was always able to play sports. Didnt matter what I always excelled more then the avergae guy.

    Thats why golf always frustrated the shit out of me. Doesnt matter how athletic you are. Everyone sucks lol

    Love golf. I actually live on a very nice golf course and it kills me as I haven't played as much as normal this year. Just short on time. The better you get the more fun it is too......

    Well I cheated, so I won't answer. I wouldn't have guessed it, but I have seen that movie before. I guessed the star you were talking about, but I didn't know he said that is how he got throat cancer. 1-0 zagga.

    It has been a while since I have seen it, and I have only watched it once. I did really like it though. I will have to watch it again sometime.
