    I'll play a few times a summer (4 - 5x). I'm horrible though. I'm super excited if I ever get less than 6 - 7 strokes on a hole.

    Normally for a full round I'm shooting around 120 - 130 strokes, haha.

    Hey Nick your a good athlete-- it's just a matter of playing more ( which is hard to do when your working with a family ) . I didn't get into it seriously till i retired .

    Actually the Queen started out first as a supplement to her tennis and skiing . Then i Started as a supplement to skiing , road biking and gym routines.

    i found out it was pretty cool because just about the time i was getting a little STALE on one sport the season ended and i had a couple of new sports to keep me going, so for me it works . It can be a frustrating game IF U LET it !! I just let go of bad shots ( hell we ALL even the pros make 'em ) and just keep swinging the club . Right now i got my groove on but i'm a streaky sumbitch . I KNOW at some point i'll b struggling -- heheehe

    I live on a golf course and try to play a couple times a week. Average about a 86-92... way too inconsistent. Love golf tho

    Warp, that sub 80 is on the way for sure for you! Probably will come on a round where you don't expect it either! Kind of like my round this morning. I've got muscle soreness almost from head to toe from too much physicaly activity and not enough recovery time the last few weeks, I was thinking about resting today but since I've got a couple of scrambles coming up real soon and I only had teed t up once this year before this morning, I knew I needed some course time!

    I went out, starting bogey, double, bogey, bogey +5 after 4 holes and then played the next 14 in +2 for a 79 (coincidently enough they were aerating the greens a my course today and he 1st aerated green I got to was on the 5th hole when I started playing better )


    Gotta love this game some days!

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.
