  1. Thanks! I was always intimidated to join up with other golfers as I felt that I was so bad that I would hold them up, and they would get frustrated with me. To be honest, I did sometimes have to group with people that seemed angry and moody and it kind of reduced my enjoyment of the game. I looked for ways to ensure I'd get to play alone. I also used to caddy for my ex who was a scratch golfer, and some of the people he played with were bad news - club throwing, tantrums, screaming, dirty looks etc etc. Since I came back to the game, I have joined up with strangers occasionally, and found that
  2. Thanks! It's nice to hear from another person with a game like mine! Glad I'm not the only "short knocker" out there. Of course I'm jealous of those who are getting 200 plus routinely, but maybe it's not to be for me. In theory, I should be able to get longer, as I am fairly tall, have good flexibility, long arms and legs, and am athletically built (although carrying a few middle-aged extra pounds of course ;)), but if I can't that's fine with me. I do crossfit 4 times a week, so I'd consider myself fairly fit for my age. In other words, I probably don't have the physical limitations that man
  3. Thanks! I do love putting. I love to practice it, and everything else relating to the short game. Of course I'm never going to be In Bee Park, but as long as I can feel like the majority of the time I can two putt, then I'm happy with my game. I also like the feeling when I get close to the green, that this is "my area", that after taking 5 shots to get there, I can now finally do something respectable :D
  4. So true! And you pay the same amount of money and get to hit more shots :D Your worst day playing golf is better than your best day at work. Like the commercial says, you're outside getting some fresh air and exercise, wearing comfortable clothes and playing a game. What's not to like?!
  5. Thanks! I certainly do enjoy my golf, even though I am terrible. I resisted spending any money on clubs for years, because I felt that it wouldn't make any difference to my game seeing as I am just a crappy duffer. What made me consider it was buying that new driver, which has literally changed my whole game around. I do feel that the driver is kind of an isolated case though, because the technology has changed SO much since I first played. My absolute best drive with my old club (which was like half the size of the GBB) would be like a 150 yard worm burner. My new driver gets 160 easily, with
  6. Thanks! When I first started playing, I also put a lot of pressure on myself to get better, better, better, but I think I just ended up getting frustrated. Nowadays I have accepted that I may not ever get much better than I am, and I can live with that. I can still enjoy the game even though I suck, although it would be nice to be able to have a handicap, break 100, etc etc. I do have a pretty demanding and time consuming job, so I won't be able to practice or play incessantly. I can probably play once a week and practice twice a week if I make the effort. I'm going to follow your advice and
  7. I'm a 51-year old right-handed female golfer. I'm terrible, but I love the game. I'm nowhere near breaking 100, but I enjoy playing (almost always by myself - I can keep up, and I don't disrupt anybody when I do team up with others, which is rare.) I have two friends that I have played golf with. One is even worse than I am, and was recently injured. The other is much better than I am, but is not able to get out very often due to work and family. So it's usually just me, which is fine, except I have no network of "golf buddies" to talk to about our games and equipment etc. That's why I'm here.
