    I've been playing for half a century

    and am still passionate about the game. It's my only "habit"/"hobby" that gives me the most return on my effort. Haven't had an ace yet but I've holed out for eagle, birdie and above many times. Each time it feels like an ace because it's not an expectation rather it's a reward...

    I'm learning how to play golf this summer.

    I'm really enjoying it. I'm having a lot of trouble developing any consistency with driving the ball. It's very frustrating, but I am enjoying getting out there and trying.

    I've played golf since I was thirteen,

    and now I'm 69. It has afforded me great joy and pleasure. I've been to and seen things that make life more enjoyable and rewarding! Life is good and golf makes life better, it is a family game that we enjoy together.

    I am late to the game

    but only so on the course as putting and driving have been favorite past times since high school. Much older now, the whole game has taken me to a fuller appreciation of a game I once thought was for people I could not identify with- how disillusioned I was by not having...

    I made my first hole-in-one a couple of years

    ago. I was playing with my two brothers and my nephew. On 11, my nephew butchered the hole, and stalked to the 12th tee saying that he was so disgusted that he was just going to make a hole-in-one. He actually hit a good shot - on the green and about 15 feet from the hole. I...

    4 Iron

    Is apparently my preference for the long drive holes. It's great to go with someone that can be patient and teach you. And he thought it was funny that I did well with the 4 in most of my shots. But heh, anything to sail that ball across lakes or what seems like miles down the...

    Absolutely love the game,

    until I start hitting Bogies and double bogies, then I swear I hate the game. Then I fall in love with it all over again once the pars and birdies start adding up. Its the one sport where any person big, small, young and old can play and get really good at it. The other day...

    just something to think about.

    .. I would appreciate hearing all you duffers opinions: A hole in one is luck, is it not? But how much luck is it? It takes some skill to hit the ball in the right direction and the correct distance. What percentage is it skill to do that ? 50%? Imagine somebody who has never...

    I Got A Birdie I played

    for the first time this year yesterday and i got a birdie but not in a good way. My tee shot on the last hole was a low rocket line drive that went badly left. It struck two birds, about 5 feet off the ground, who were flying so close to each other I think they were mating. We...

    I love golf and have played

    since I was 13! I've played on 3 continents but mostly in the USA. I've only had one "ace" it was a 4 iron from 174 yards. I long for a woman that enjoys golf as well.

    I'm pretty excited about it! My original one broke, so I've been using this really crappy one. My driving has sucked lately, but I'm pretty spot on with my short game. There's just one little thing that's wrong with my swing, so imma try to figure that out this week at the...

    Sounds crazy but it not just chasing a little

    white ball around for miles it seems. It's being outdoors with a friend or friends enjoying our time together. It relaxing, it's refreshing it's something that I want to do more of this year. FOUR!!

    I love to play golf. You are outside,

    with your friends. It is a very very hard game. I would not have it any other way. Every course is different. I love to play in tournaments as you test your skills against others. I learned to play during the Vietnam war when we were in San Diego between west pac cruises. We...

    I play golf badly, don't have a handicap,

    usually team up with one of my mates and we have a laugh! But I do enjoy getting out there, the whole ritual of the thing, and enjoy playing badly when all around you are doing their level best to act as if they are Tiger the 2nd when it's clear they aren't!
