Did your parents play?
Or did you pick the game up by yourself. Mine loved the game. Played with my father a few times, he died when I was young. My mother played a little with him, mostly with other couples namely my aunts and uncles. After she raised 6 kids mostly by herself, she retired and bought a condo on a golf course. Played with her when my wife and I visited her. Grandad was a big into golf too. Wish I could have played more with my dad. Played with hand me down clubs growing up. Sometimes my moms clubs. Used her putter for a long time.

re: Did your parents play?
My Dad played very sporadically. We lived right near a golf course, but were never members. I started playing right out of high school. The course had a deal on Tuesday that members could bring guests for cart fee only. Beers in the 19th hole were $1.00 and they had these baskets of house made croutons they’d pass out. So for $6.00, we got 9 holes, two beers and a snack.

re: Did your parents play?
Nope, wish my dad did. He's been with me once. Not his thing.

I started playing back in high school with my cousin here and there. Now I'm a 1-2 rounds a week golfer.

I started my son on golf when he was 7 or so. Be's almost 15 now. He's not constistant but has a pretty nice swing. We just have fun out there. That's what it's all about. Take him as often as I can. He loves it, and it's something we can do when he's grown and I'm old.

My dad is still scratch to this day at age 66, I’ve beaten him 3-4 times in my lifetime, it’s a rare occurrence.

re: Did your parents play?
My wife had three girls when we married. Got all of their sons into it. Hard to get em to get serious because of other sports, mainly baseball. They could have really been good. The youngest is nine and we went to the range before xmas, and he hit 90 balls and wanted to hit more. He really like to let the big dog eat.

Picked it up on my own, tried to get my daughter into it but she never cared to play. My son likes to hit balls and hopefully he’ll get into it in a couple years.

He was really good until he broke his hip. He had to give it up.

My dad played when I was growing up and introduced me to it around 8-9 yrS old. To this day I can’t beat him, it’s the mental thing

My dad has always played. My mom loves watching golf on TV and going to the Zurich classic every year but she has never played.

Nobody in my family played. I picked it up on my own when my wife was pregnant for our first one and I needed a hobby to get out of the house and away from the hormones.

re: Did your parents play?
Nope. Neither of my parents did any sports.

I started getting serious about golf at the end of 2015. I was 28. Before then I’d play maybe once a year with an old used set of ping g20s and some academy woods.

re: Did your parents play?
My dad plays three times per week from April - December. He is a CPA, so tax season sort of locks him down during the winter months.

He is a 5-6 handicap. I played baseball and basketball when I was younger, but I started playing golf with him when I was 14. I wish I would have started way sooner and dropped baseball.

re: Did your parents play?
My dad played a lot when I was younger and that's how I got into it. Started joining him in his Saturday morning old guy groups when I was 10 or 11, played with him and my uncle (mom's sister's husband), my friends and their dads who were members at our club, etc.

He was never an excellent player, low 90s with the occasional high 80s at his best, but he loved/loves the game (except when he's playing) and that passion was instrumental to me getting into it. I started beating him when I was about 14 and have not lost to him since.

He's retired and not very good anymore, but he still plays every week.

My uncle (dad's brother) and his wife used to be very good and we loved playing together.

re: Did your parents play?
Dad has played as long as I can remember and still does. He and my uncle got me started when I was 9-10. I got to where I could beat pops some when I was in highschool. We've stayed fairly competitive over the years with me getting the best of him more times than not. Now he's moved up to the old man tees he's harder to handle. My uncle if a hell of a golfer. He has beaten the brakes off me consistently for 30 years...

re: Did your parents play?
Dad played in college and mom played for a while as well. I have had clubs for as long as I can remember. My dad has worked in numerous pro shops/golf courses.

He is the best 60+ year old player I've ever played with, that's for sure. He still hits it very well.

My dad played a lot.

He was single digit index for a long time.

Took me to play often as a kid.

I got serious at about 15 years old.
