Hey Everyone,   It’s been a long time since I’ve swung a club (Oct 2020 to be exact)  Prior to taking this time off, I played off 6. My clubs have been calling me by my full name f

When I was working and raising kids, I would go several years without touching a club.  After I retired and started playing golf with some regularity (2 or 3 times per week normally), I set a net up i

Not sure what the longest I've been is, but in 2015 I went 8 weeks.

 

We went  traveling around Australia, but finally got a game when we got to Sydney. Played in a member/guest invitational with my brother who was the head pro at the club. 

 

Shotgun start, and we started on a par 3. He went first and stuck it to 8 feet. Needless to say I wasn't feeling great with a makeshift set of clubs, but first swing in 8 weeks and I holed it! 

 

I'll never forget it. Roseville Golf Club. 8th hole. It was a nice return after 8 weeks away haha.

15ish years... Moved to an area that had significantly higher costs for playing and my life circumstances pushed golf down the priority list.  Moved back to the origin area with lower costs and life circumstances provide for more leisure time now.  I've played 16 times this year, since my first round on 3/7/2021.  It's taken a bit to find my swing again, my putting still hasn't returned to what it once was and I guess it's no surprise that my short game didn't miraculously become great without playing.  With ball striking having improved, my focus is chipping and pitching.  I was +5 on the front 9 of a par three course yesterday.  Pretty happy with the progress that I've made so far.

I used to be on this forum all the time, played golf 70-100 rounds a year, had +2.8 handicap.

 

As of today, haven't hit a golf ball since July 2019 and those 18 holes were the first I played in about 14 months before that.  

 

Life happened and priorities changed.  I still love the game, but just haven't been able to find time to play, practice or even dust off my bag (sitting on a shelf in the garage under some 2x4s).

8 years or so, started in grade 7 or 8, played a bit in high school but slowly gave it up to focus on other sports probably around grade 11. Then went off to college, was on the T&F team so focused on that, hurt my shoulder was out for 2 years recovering, went back to university and back on the T&F, focused on that, finished school tried to go pro but that didn't work out. Friends asked me to play in a tournament, got hooked and here I am.

I'm currently in my longest stretch ever.  Haven't touched a club since October.  Thanks to Covid the course and practice facilities have been insanely busy every time I drive by and I just keep driving.  Golf used to be my escape from people and seeing the place crowded like that is such a buzzkill I just haven't been able to get motivated.
