    Too much golf

    Wondering how much golf you play per week and how your body copes/recovers, as many might know I just joined a club 2 weeks ago and since iv been trying to play almost every day I can, iv played 6 rounds in 15 days and iv been fine I played yesterday and I could really feel my body starting to struggle, I was just going to push through and play today but I'm not so sure now,

    I think the longest stretch I ever did was 10 days. By the end I'd had enough.

    Late forties and if I play 4 times in a week(on holiday), then my body, hands ache a lot and generally feel pooped!

    Re: Too much golf

    I'm 39 and thought I'd be OK but my ankles and back are a bit sore, I was thinking it would go away eventually if I push through,

    Re: Too much golf

    occasionally do 5 or 6 games in a row and after that really need a rest. i can get away with 3 on the trot, but try and take a rest after that if i can. I'm in my 50's

    Re: Too much golf

    Most I've played is seven rounds in six days. By the sixth round I was bored of golf and on the 7th I was both bored and knackered. Playing tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, which will be the longest "streak" in a while.
    Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

    Re: Too much golf

    I play as often as possible and generally carry.

    Would say most I've done is probably 12 rounds in a fortnight. Was probably more mentally fatigued than physically.

    I was on a golf trip last week and played 5 days in a row, I would have happily carried on for another couple of days. I'm 57 years old and I was walking the courses.

    I think I need to get fitter if I was to attempt 3,4,5,6 days in a row
