Well, the golfing season is finally in full swing here in Idaho, USA, and it feels good to get out and attempt to drive a golf straight.

How many here on the Eights play golf, and if you do how is your game? Do you ride a cart or do you walk? What ball do you use, and what is your prefer driver?

I'll start out:

Walk, I am out for the game and the exercise.
I really like the new NXT, thou I have been testing the New D2 by Topflite.
My main driver is a Cleveland XLT stiff shift, and by secondary driver is a Cobra 460 X Speed with a XShift (extra stiff). :cool:

I played a LOT of baseball for a pretty long time, so once I tried swinging a golf club, it wasn't pretty. Might as well give be a bat to hit the ball off of the tee.
I gave up right away. Couldn't get away from the baseball swing......and it's not my kinda sport anyway.

MWRed,
I played a lot of baseball too, when I was younger, and the transition to golf was easy.
Your stance is the same and taking the club back is like setting up for a fastball and your eyes are on the golfball, baseball. Your weight shifts back to your back foot. Then you attack the ball with a good solid motion and take the ball just over the pitcher's mound. Right down the middle.
Watch Freddie Couples or Ernie Els golf swing. Smooth and Solid contact with the ball.
Now get back out there young man and let's do it for the Gipper! ha ha

LOL.....I know. My cousin tried getting me to do it again, but that was years ago. I haven't touched a club since then.

I have never tried golf. I will some day, just to say I have tried it. I did mini-putting once at an amusement park when I was younger, it was quite good fun, though not real golf, as I hit it into small Windmills and through hoops!

Me, I will stick with climbing! I love climbing too much to give it up, even if it has given me a permanent spinal injury (not too serious thankfully, just a broken vertebrate, though it still causes me a lot of pain when I lie down, several years on and forever), a broken bone, countless sprains and twists, and a LOT of skin ripped of on sharp holds. This is the problem with taking things seriously, the more seriously you play, and the longer you play for, the more competitions you join at higher and higher levels, the more injuries you have. It is stating to have its effect already, and I am only 14! One day I will be forced to give it up, hopefully not from a sitting position in a wheelchair, or a lying position in a hospital bed!

P.S. Nice cartoon!
