In addition to their NFL job? It seems like half the players on our team (and probably many others) love to go golfing, or failing that, playing baseball.

And they're not slouches either, with very low handicaps (didn't Longwell have a handicap of like, 1.6 or something?). I don't understand.

It's easy......they can AFFORD it. Golf can be VERY expensive. I play, but only at the little par 3 course called "Missing Links" in Mequon. It's a 9 hole course, and only $7 to play 9 holes, or play it twice for $10.
Why do you think doctors play so much? They can AFFORD it. The average guy with a family can't shell out $75 a couple times a week to play. They might get to go a few times a year. But that makes it hard to become any good at it. Anyone that doesn't even have to THINK about the money part, can play as often as they like, and probably will get good at it.
JMO of course.

Anyone that plays golf can tell you there isn't a game that is more addicting or self challenging than GOLF. It takes up way to much of my free time and if i had more free time i would golf more. BTW Cheesey i golfed Erin Hills last week and it was $165 for 18 holes...lol

Oh geez......was i ever off on the price! Obviously i never played at a "real" golf course. In fact, i have only played 3 times at Missing Links. It's a par 3, 9 holes. So par is 27. I had a 45 my first time, 48 the second, and 39 the last time. Being a beginner, i don't feel too bad about those scores. I doubt i will EVER get to play a "real" golf course. WAY too much money for me. I'd have to save up a whole year just to play ONCE!

Those scores aren't too bad for a beginner. Missing Links is a tough par 3 course. Also, you don't have to spend that much money to play a decent course. Some of the Milwaukee County courses like Currie and Lincoln are reasonable in terms of price and aren't too challenging.

Don't you have to be a Milwaukee county resident to get the cheap price though? I'm in Ozaukee county. And yes.....Missing links is a challenge. Not many flat spots there. LOTS of hills and water.

Zombie........i used to think that too. Till i tried it. It's not an easy sport. But it's challenging and believe it or not, a good workout.

No, you don't have to be a Milwaukee County resident to buy the discount card. Even without the card, Lincoln and Currie are both under 20$ for nine holes.

Oh....ok!
I can't hit the ball real far yet, only up to about 150 yards from the tee......with a good bounce. And that when i hit it REAL good.
