I turned pro 2006, I'll play full-time on the Swedish tour this year. Had an average score of about 73 last season.

The people who say it's not a sport or doesn't require any physical this or that don't really know much. Take it from a pro.

...and that is still eliminating the mental pressure which far exceeds any team sport I've ever partaken in (hockey, floorball, football...).

Good Luck with the full time gig!

I play... and I'm not good. I broke 100 for the first time last summer. It took me 16 years.

Wow, this is an old thread. I just read it and realized I already posted in it... two years ago.

What was your average 2yrs ago :lol:

I suck too but I got a wycked drive....My motto is why go around when you can drive over it or through it..

I have yet to go since my injury last fall but the old heads I golf with are fairly consistent (82-86)

I have a decent drive- I can usually pop it in the 225-230 range consistently. My biggest problem is consistency in the rest of my game. I have a tough time from 90 yards and in. If I had more time to practice I would, but it's tough when you can only play a few months out of the year and have to work full-time. If I could retire tomorrow, I would be a much better golfer, because it would be all I'd do. :P

Weak with the driver (its a POS), great with the irons and chip shots, decent with the putter. I really, really need to get a new driver. It kills my game.

Let's see...with the driver I hook the ball pretty badly (maybe cause I'm left-handed but I play righty? who knows?) Good with fairway woods and hybrids, decent with iron shots, good with chips, mediocre putting.

I'm thinking we have an NJDevs golf outing this summer? It'd be a hell of a time B )

That's not a bad idea at all...

The tendency for a lefty playing rightie is usually a fade/slice, since you're leading with your strong side and your weak side can easily lag behind a bit.

I should know, I'm like you in that aspect. ;)

Golf is indeed a sport, if you don't think there are advantages in golf for being an athlete you are insane. First it requires tremendous amounts of coordination. Second, in order to hit the ball far you need to have fast twitch muscles, flexibility and core strength. On top of that it requires amazing timing. Its just as much of a sport as baseball.

very true.

If people call Nascar a sport than golf is definitely a sport...... the people that call golf NOT a sport are the people that cant play it! or dont understand it.

Damn Jason carrying 2 putters? Sounds like someone has (or had) a case of the yips.

Ones for throwing.....I wanted to snap my R7 after I hooked my first 5 drives last week.

Definitely not like riding a bike... After my injury last year it's going to take some time

just to get back to being a bad golfer. So I'm going again today and then Saturday too.

Might have to loosen up a bit before hand at the bar..

I broke my right elbow and the first time I chunked a shot I though my arm was going to fall off. The beer did little to help the pain.

Thankfully 100's of chunks later I'm used to the sting now. And the beer is back to being recreational, not medicinal.

Ouch!!

We ended up playing with two older Korean guys rots and rots of fun. The one guy Kim was real good he could knock the sh!t

out of the ball with one of those old school 10cc drivers. He was coaching and giving his friend sh!t in Korean lol . I only lost

6 balls but found 6. I pared 5 holes(which is good for me) and butchered the rest :evilcry: My short game sucks ass

Unless the course is your office.

But then I always think that at least it's not a "regular" office.

Anyone watching the US Open?

Too bad for the rain, the course set up great with decent weather. Hopefully they get both rounds in today.

I shot 71-68-65 this weekend to win the club championship by a boatload. The 65 was a new course record. :dance:
