    Re: what golf has brought you?

    Welcome to years of pain and joy! I believe golf is a love , hate relationship I have only been playing for 2 years after getting 10 lessons to start me off. Here is an example of what can happen. Since those lessons I have read and tried every hint and video and book I could get my hands on. Sadly this has taken me way off what I was taught I have started again with my lessons and for me nothing compares to the feeling of hitting that ball sweetly, or sinking that 20 foot putt, they are why we keep coming back. The game will teach you patience, to clear your mind to all but your next stroke, manners and sportsmanship and many personal experiences, known only to you. I sometimes think anyone who says they have not thrown a club in frustration is most likely lying, but here we have another lesson, self control. I have really enjoyed my golf and even though I feel like I am starting again, the friends and personal growth will keep me coming back
    Again, Welcome, Regards Peter.

      Golf has brought me many, many years of out door happiness. Yes, there are days when the happiness part gets stretched a bit, but none the less I never leave the course with a poor attitude. I may show up to golf with a poor attitude, but my golf cures the what ever the issue is/was.

      I have made some fine business friends, have made them, and me some money. I have golfed with my children as they were growing up, and still do. I am now golfing with my grand children as they grow up. I have also made quite a few life long friends while golfing who, when I first met them on the first hole were complete strangers. I have also met the occasional jerk, who along with the good folks are used as examples on how not to act, while the good ones are how to act in life.

      I have even help a few friends build their own multi hole courses.

      Golf is just one of those games that no matter how bad things might become, the golfer can always get some good out of playing the game.

      Actually, the worst part of golf for me is, it cuts into my fishing, hiking, and other hobbies I have. Some how I manage......GJS
