I've gotten more serious about playing over the past couple years. For a long time I played just a handful of times each year. I guess about three years ago I started playing more regularly and now I try to get out at least five or six times a month. Not as much as I'd like, but I've gotten a whole lot better, which makes the game more fun. I probably still need to take a few lessons but haven't to this point.
I try to play 90 or more holes a week! Some days I get in 45 --- I tell my wife I get rusty quickly without playing!
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
