It gets logarithmically harder the better one gets where fun starts going out the window. Funny how we ask the same questions in life all the time. Any golf fanatics out there with single-digit handicaps? Do you agree that after a certain level, no matter how hard you try, you can no longer improve in life? I can usually get in about rounds during the summer months plus a few more in the spring or fall. Still, my handicap is about 16 and it is nice that I can pick up the clubs after a month off and still shoot what I would expect.
Ya gotta do it man. It could be the difference in hundreds of thousands of dollars in earnings over your lifetime!!! If I could turn back time, I would have forced my dad to make my play every week since I could hold a stick.

The sport is huge for all business! It was a 9 hole golf course. Hawaii golf rocks bc the ball goes yards farther! Golf is just one example. I loved this article and totally agree that golf is the sport that best represents trials and frustrations similar to life. Golf is by far the hardest sport on earth! Funny comparison btwn baseball and golf!
Ya gotta break 20 handi man. Life is too short not to! I finally broke 10 and am sitting at a 9. This post just makes me happy that I am not a golfer. I definitely prefer sports where the outcome is a lot more dependent on raw effort and hustle. All I can say is that I hope I end up better at life than at golf.
By definition you will since by your admittance you are horrible at golf! You mean some people actually play golf because they like it and want to get better?
Golf: Impossible ()
I do think that certain bodies are built better for certain sports — like Michael Phelps seemed to be built for swimming. As to not beng able to improve in life — I have to believe that you can go on improving somehow, in some area of your life. Otherwise it would be too depressing. I had plenty of room for improvement in my golf game before giving it up due some back issues. People can plateau. As for life…I think we can always improve overall.
Now, in some specific aspects we might not get better.
But it seems to me like there are always things we can improve on, get smarter about, etc. Ahhhh, to be as lucky and hack it up like you! The MOST fun is when you go from to around Sports is a metaphor for life so golf is no different. There are many things that no matter how much I practice I may never get materially better. I do not play golf, however I see the strategy of the game. Maybe you need to do something to shake up your state of mind and re-think everything from a totally new angle… meditation, psychedelic drugs, something new?
The only thing I can do to regularly break 80 is to play once a week and hit the driving range once or twice a week. Great post. There are definitely things you can learn about yourself and life from the game of golf. I married into a golfing family so I have been immersed into learning how to play. I like being outside and having the fresh air but I am rarely happy with my swing. It definitely takes endurance, motivation, and determination. These are great things to develop for the rest of life. Eventually I may become good and hit a plateau but that is far in my future.
Then you are very fortunate to have not hit that plateau! Progress is a wonderful feeling.
Mental fortitude seems to be the key to everything. I watch my daughter play volleyball and in one of her first games, she made a bad set. Her game went downhill from there. Her serve went in the net, and I could see the confidence just falling off her face. I took her out for cocoa afterward and told her that she mentally took herself out of that game.
Her mind beat herself up, and she let it happen. In adversity, you just gotta pull your bootstraps up and move forward with your head held high. Plateaus are a part of life, and I guess it makes sense because the human body has limits in itself. No matter how much you practice, you probably will never be able to hit a yard drive. Regarding if you should quit while you are ahead, that depends on how much enjoyment you get out of the game. Is it less fun now that you have accomplished your goal?
Could your time be better spent elsewhere? Or, do you absolutely love going to the golf course? I totally burnt out for yrs. See System Requirements. Available on Mobile device. Description Think you've got what it takes to master this simple but tough puzzle game? Show More.
