Re: Golfers of RedsZone (aka War Stories from the Rough)
I started golfing five years ago so I could spend time with my dad. Last year I was shooting in the low to mid eighties from the middle tees. It took about four years for me to "get it". I worked on the game from the cup to the tee and didn't buy a driver until last year. And I still use my three wood a lot more, which may leave me a little short, but I'm rarely in terrible trouble. My clubs are hand me downs that my dad bought at a country club (but they came with a 56 degree Vokey wedge, which I must say is like a magic wand).
Haven't played at all yet this year and probably won't play more than a few times because I bought a sailboat to take my kids out on. Additionally, I realize that getting much lower than where I am is purely a function of time, which I just do not have. That has changed my perspective, to the point that I will probably be content just to play 10 times a season, rather than the twice a week I played for the last five years. While I was seeing a lot of improvement in my game it was a lot of fun, but reaching a plateau has made golf a little pedestrian for me.
