I quit the game many years ago for a variety of reasons. First, was not enough time. I needed to play at least 3 times a week to keep my game in shape. My job made it difficult to play with any frequency at all. Even when I had the time, the courses were so crowded 4 hours rounds were not even possible. Second, was cost. The price of green fees was high enough to keep me from playing. Third was I’d lost my playing partner. Fourth, because I wasn’t playing or practicing enough, I wasn’t playing as well as I should have. I wasn’t having any fun playing poorly. Now that I’m playing again, I’m retired and have all the time I need. I can afford to play now and play weekdays when there isn’t as much traffic. I’ve got a new playing partner and, I don’t really care what I shoot so I don’t get frustrated when my scores aren’t great.
