Thought I would start a golf thread
I live in FL, the land of plentiful nice courses and cheap courses
I'm playing tomorrow at the USF Claw golf course
Just got a new grip on my Driver, excited to try it out
Do you play?
Bet?
What do you shoot

I voted 100+ but if 200+ were a choice, I would have gone with that. To play golf and not gamble is like playing blackjack for no money.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I meant the poll to be able to have multiple votes
maybe an admin can fix that :-)

I'm in Orlando. Generally play about once a week. Low 90's. "I enjoy golfing poorly."

I have two different groups of friends that I play with. I head up one group, and we never bet. I just tag along with the other group, and they bet on everything (bunch of hospitality folks). Individuals, teams, stroke play, match play, chip offs, putting game... all at the same time. I just ask them to add it all up and tell me what I owe in the clubhouse.

In middle school, I really liked playing golf, but never had much time with other sports. My mom would drop me off at the golf course near our house and I'd practice putting and chipping for an hour or 2, usually 2-3 times a month for a year and a half or so. I really liked it, but that was about all the time I had for it, since I preferred other sports over golf.

But I haven't golfed since. I don't see me (myself?) getting back into it, at least not anytime soon.

When I used to play once a week, I would shoot in the 90s, now that I play once or twice a year it's about 105

Need to be able to vote for options. Apparently can't be a bigot and also fall into another category.

Only shot in the 90s maybe 3 times. I just cannot drive to save my life. Like, I use a driver on long par 3's, and that's not a joke. 165yds? Gimme the big dog because that's right in my wheelhouse.

First time I ever went, third hole, banged one right down the pipe, settling at 285yds out. Nailed it to a mix of "oohs" and raucous laughing, because I stroked the club like I swung a bat. Elbows bent, knee cocked, really drove into the sucker like a fastball low and away. Felt good, felt natural. But "You can't swing like that! This is golf!". So I "fixed" my swing and ain't never had a good drive since.

My approach is decent and my putting is straight up surgical. I'll hit at least one 40 footer every time I go out, and even have a 60' under my belt. That's good enough for me. Well, that and a course that allows no shirts and bring-your-own-cooler.

I play and practice a lot. My handicap index is 3.4

I always gamble, and always drink.

Gotta gamble. A 3 foot putt with a couple of bucks on it is a whole different shot.
