Literally as an escape from real life lol and i enjoy the ethics around golf

Because I am a glutton for punishment.  😄

"All answers are correct" - WOW  😛

 

I feel so much better 🤗 knowing someone has validated my reason.  Dang, I am going to run down the street and holler at the top of my lungs, I am free... 😬 right? 

 

I took up golf because I can play good golf and still enjoy playing with people that are not as focused on scoring low as I am.

Me against the course and my own head.  Quiet.  If you don't want to talk/listen to music/etc., Don't.  

 

And while not "nature" per se...it is in my mind.  Outside, fresh air, and the most meticulous grounds you'll find.  

 

Thinking man's game with peace and quiet.  Any parent and/or hard worker can appreciate 3.5 hrs of peace with only one thing to focus on.  Missing that next putt...😉

Why do I play golf?

1. It takes my mind off of everything else

2. It's a fun way to spend quality time with friends

3. It's a great way to meet new people. (To paraphrase something from the book "Blue Fairways",  everyone you get paired with on the golf course is a new friend, it's only the group in front of you who are sometimes A-holes")😄

4. It's an easy way to enjoy a few hours in a beautiful setting with cool wildlife and often time beautiful views

5. I like the challenges of trying to understand the  "questions" the architect is asking i.e. trying to (a) understand what shot is called for and (b) execute it.

When i started it was to spend more time with my Grandparents. Then the love of the game grew, when my pop died my love of the game did for a couple years. Then it bit me again, i spent the next so many years playing as much as i could and practicing a ton. When my gram stopped playing she made me promise to not stop when she passes so i didnt. 

Next Chapter is i love playing, being outside, the feeling of good shots and being with friends. Adding now that my two youngest kids play and both love the game i get more enjoyment then ever playing golf. Nothing like watching your kids enjoy and playing good. Being excited after a round and asking can we go next week again. Asking if they can get lessons to get better. I love this game, it has given me so much without asking for a ton.

1. Love being outside when its nice out

2. I'll admit I love having a few while playing 🙂

3. It's 'me' time away from the kids and wife (not that i dont love them)

4. The challenge and constantly trying to improve

5. I'm a stats nerd and love seeing the stats at the end of a round and seeing how I did, where i stunk, etc.

When I started as a kid, it was to spend time with my grandfather, who taught me to play. 

 

Stopped playing for about 15 years, and returned to it last year because I was sick of being stuck inside and it was something safe to do. I'm a big guy who's trying to lose some weight but has struggled to do so because of some old foot/lower leg injuries dating back to my football days, and I've found that walking/carrying 18 holes is actually great exercise that doesn't upset those injuries. I've dropped 10 pounds so far this season even though courses only really opened up less than a month ago.

 

Those health benefits are what I have to keep reminding myself of when I'm playing poorly, spraying it all over the place and turning a six-mile walk into an eight-mile walk...

1) Get Away and clear your mind. Focus on something fun to do and wash away everything else for a few hours

2) Always something to improve. Its never ending. There is always more to do, tweak, practice. So it never gets stale

3) Love being outside and enjoying the weather.

4) Get way to spend time with friends/family

I played short stop on my little league team until I was bullied so badly by teammates that I quit. I played golf because I could play by myself. There's more to my love for the game now of course. But, it saved me as a kid.

      Please put any questions or comments here. 
       
      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
