My position exactly m8 :)
I last played in 1997, 18 holes/day straight from work at 4pm, at least 18 at weekends, more often it would be 36 holes with medals and regional opens.
I slowly gave up over a period of time but have just got back into it this year.
I used to play off a comfortable 9, but I'm struggling to break 90 round my home course at the moment :( but hopefully I can get a bit more consistent.
A few visits to the driving range over the winter months should sharpen me up hopefully.
Glad you're enjoying it m8 :Hit:

I was invited to play in an Charity Texas Scramble a couple of years ago, on the top championship course in my area as my pal is the match secretary there.
I've never had such a miserable time, hitting massive hooks into whin bushes and then shanking almost every short iron. The harder I tried the worse I got. It caused much hilarity that I've never really lived down :) .
It was a real sickener and its probably why I've been reluctant to start up again.
My next door neighbour just plays for fun, probably about a 16 handicapper so he's an ideal playing partner.

me too used top play every weekend, got myself to playing off 11, but i got to the stage where playing through the winter just wasn't worth the frozen hands and 5 days of cold. Shame really, still go to the driving range now and again, but i'd be lucky to break 100 at the moment. Lets see what the coming months bring!

I just cleaned my clubs last week, realised how ancient they were, but they still do the job.

Someone died playing golf
Fred got home from his Sunday round of golf later than normal and very tired. "Bad day at the course?" his wife asked.

"Everything was going fine," he said. "Then Harry had a heart attack and died on the 10th tee."

"Oh, that's awful!"

"You're not kidding. For the whole back nine it was hit the ball, drag Harry, hit the ball, drag Harry."
