I'm definitely missing golf. I'm retired and weather dependent I would be out playing 4 times a week on average so now have nothing to do. Getting up later and later and making the dog walks last longer just to try and make the day shorter.

Got to be the best thread-jack ever! Discussion of whether you miss golf, diverts to "save our squirrel!" :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Monday morning, sitting at the laptop in my home office -perfect blue skies, but a keen easterly wind blowing. (we rarely have those) I wouldn't be playing golf today anyway! But yesterday afternoon, would have been great for a game, and/or a drive out to a Tintern or Symonds Yat, a walk along the river and a pub lunch.

Normality is being missed - and golf is a part of that normality.

Missing golf? Yes I was - but I've now accepted that I'm not going to be playing for some time and so I have no nagging ongoing pain.

I've done without it before (for almost 8 yrs when children were v little we were skint I was playing at most 1-2 rounds a year - some years not at all) - and funny enough I came through without suffering any significant long-term harm (other than finding on my return I had a swing that made me an excellent sh**ker :) ).

Will I go back to it. Of course I will.

Of course I miss it but its the social interaction, especially in the weekend roll ups I miss most. Great bunch of lads and there is no hiding place, especially on the Sunday roll up and you play badly and get the rosette for the lowest score. What I miss most though is how one conversation can suddenly morph into something totally unrelated (not sure how many must be lurkers on here and learned the art). Fortunately we have a decent whatsapp group so keeping in touch and more importantly making sure everyone is fine and well has been a bonus

Still no urge here to play golf.

This is getting worrying! Just picked up some fence slats tonight, 40 6'x4" and 4 3x3 posts.

Need to get some chuckies from somewhere to mix up some concrete.
