    Re: Too much golf

    On our annual trip we play twice a day and once on Sunday - ie 11 rounds in 6 days. At our age (60) we are starting to find that pretty tiring and may well cut back by a round or two this year.

    Play your normal game but think carefully about what you "need" from shots. Playing "sensibly" to be on the green in three, is often more useful than being too aggressive and in the clag after two.
