Not having fun anymore
It sort of hit me out of the blue but suddenly golf has become something i have started to dread. I got back into it 3 years ago and wanted to get back to scratch and have gotten myself down to a 3-to 4 handicap and absolutely hit the wall. I recently joined a club and was excited to join since several of my playing buddies are members but since becoming a member i almost feel like I HAVE to golf. If i sit at home, or workout, or do anything else on a free day i feel like i am wasting money. I honestly only have fun playing alone anymore. Last night I went down to the club around 6 and was excited to play/practice on the course alone and as i got to the tee my playing partners were on their second 18. I felt obligated to join them and on the first tee it was all about what we were playing for. I took a double on 1, double on 2, par on the 3rd and on the 4th snapped a ball OB. They were all hovering around par. I politely told them to play on and that i needed to work on somethings. Once I was on my own i felt peace and went on to play well the remainder of the way, Today i was supposed to play and backed out almost all day i was dreading another competitive round. I really do not know what to do... I am now paying 250 plus a month for a club and seem to be hating the game. I do not want to quit because i absolutely regret when i gave up golf in 2005 and know thats not the answer. Sorry for the vent...lol my fiance would just laugh and make fun of such a 1st world problem.
