Also add golf to the huge list of things I hate doing with people. Played on my own for the back 9, took maybe 2 hours, probably more like 90 minutes. Hit the front 9 get stuck with a threesome, foursomes ahead and three hours later (plus 30 minutes waiting for the groups to tee off) we're still not done.
Basically that's it. Instead of playing I will get some lessons.
Probably good to take a break, take your mind off of the frustration, and lessons are never a bad thing. Also, since it's early in the season people are itching to get out and play, hence long waits being a reality. Sucks. I have yet to hit a course this season...
I rarely play LONG courses where I need much more than a well struck 3i after my tee shot. If I'm in the shit and 250+ yards out from the hole, I just lay up with a safe iron shot than try to fish around with hitting my fairway wood out of the trouble.
There was a super cute girl in the stall next to mine at the range at Chelsea Piers. I recognized her from a previous visit last year because she's a cute, petite, asian (half?) girl and remembered her clubs/bag. She was taking a break on the bench behind our stalls and said "nice shot" to a 7i that landed on the fake green 180 yards out. I had my earbuds and music on and barely heard her. Looked up sorta confused as I was piecing together what she said and just muttered "thanks". I was not prepared to strike up a conversation at the range... ed level fail right there....
