    878 Rounds In A Year - WOW

    Just seen this pop up in my feed, 878 rounds of golf in a year, walking and carrying......WOW!

    makes my 156 last year seem fairly trivial, and even out does Liverpool Phil!

    I used to work with Barry when he based here in the UK with IBM. He's a decent guy, plays off about 10.
    He came to Pyrford and played off the back tees, shot about 95 and left commenting "last time I play this bloody stupid course".

    That's 2 1/2 rounds per day. Without taking Christmas off. I mean, I like golf. I really do. But I think, even if I didn't need to worry about money (or a social life at that) and was living somewhere where it never rains ... I don't think I could (or would want to at that) do more than a round a day with at least one day off every week.

    My hands would be nothing but blisters. And the state my feet would in after all the walking. If I were a retired millionaire I'd probably play 3 times a week as a happy average.

    Played 21 rounds in 12 days on holiday in Florida .
    Buggies were used always and I was shattered when I got home.
    Phisically that's a lot of golf on your body.
    well done that man to play that much.

    I have to be honest and say I'd get bored playing that much. I wonder what effect it has on his game and what his handicap has done, assuming as he's US based he'd have to submit cards for each round (assume that's correct). Personally I'd want time off to work at my game and try and improve not simply play, play play. Just a personal opinion of course and while it's not the same course all the time I wonder how much he got to enjoy each of these. Sounds like, turn up, play, go off to the next

    Re: 878 Rounds In A Year - WOW

    As someone above wrote, even, if I won the Euromillions this coming Friday and didn't need to work ever again, 3 or 4 rounds a week would be more than enough.

    HE has a very understanding golfing wife, but even she said that at 87 (10%) rounds played she thought that was excessive. A little under twice a week that would be nice.
