    Anyone else not hit a ball 2018?

    Hi all

    So have now gone to lay a round of golf six times this year and for the sixth time the course was closed

    Have also been to the driving range half a dozen times when it was so wet and or windy that it would have been a waste of time getting a bucket of balls

    Am soooo frustrated - anyone else in the same boat??

    Only hit balls at the range, but that is part of the shoulder rehabilitation along with the physio. Weather has been gash so not missing much on the course.

    Same here - had 2 discs replaced in my c-spine (neck) mid-December and am having to take it steady. A couple of visits to range and so far, so good.
    Had the weather of been better recently, I'm not sure that I would have been able to avoid the temptation getting a quick cheeky 9 in.

    Played mid-Oct but succumbed to flu, and a combination of weather and can't be bothered going out in the cold has meant 1 round at Cleveland on the 26th Jan. 4 range sessions of about 60 balls in total.

    My next round will be in Spain next week, and the next and the next and the next and so on and so on and so on...repeat, repeat, repeat.

    Have hit far too many balls in 2018 - 3 buffers and 11 x 0.1 increases, not looking good for the Kent Links tour.
