And I have no problem playing without a driver...getting outdriven by friends, but beating them at the end of the day.
You know how the saying goes........"drive for show, putt for dough". Short game will be a bigger factor in a low score than driving distance.
What killed it for me was about 6 or 7 years ago, my wife was really getting into golf. She signed us up for a weekend course down in Florida at a John Jacobs school. It was so intense.........by the end of the weekend, my hands were badly blistered. When I got home, I was done. I didn't pick a club up again for probably 2 years.
I do find that it is somewhat like riding a bike. I can go to the range and hit them fairly decently after not having been there for a long time.
We actually have 2 courses on our street. One is gorgeous and fancy, and has green fees to go with that. The other is a par 3, and the most casual place you could ever go. Heck, you could play in a pair of shorts and barefoot if you wanted. Would be a perfect place to host an "MMA News Forum" golf outing!
