Golf The only game the more you play the worse you can get!!!
That seems so to be the case . When I came up . It took a couple years of hard playing . Including my 500 RR's to saturate as a Legend .
I thought even then that I had it down and my next road to TL wasn't going to be too hard . And it probably wouldn't have been . I was on a good steady streak .
Had I not started a CC . And dove fully in head first . And actually forgot to play . For the most part . And then about a year into that . I realized . Or it felt like I that I had forgot how to play . I had lost my edge . Especially any putting skills I may have had or thought I had .
So for the next year and a half . I played only moderately . And my average did not budge . It stayed at 62.45 the whole time . I played a - 6 round in Dec . 2016 . And didn't even notice it had dropped .01 until a long time CC member messaged me " CONGRATS your average dropped . " . So I have been trying little harder since then . Dropped a little more . But am completely baffled about the putting . And honestly without that horrendous putting . Would be a TL by now .
But I have to do what i have to do first and foremost for my CC . While I am still running it . Realistically there isn't enough time for me to play any serious golf . After I finish the days CC business and maybe play a multi player round or 2 or 3 . A format that i love and can't do with out . And am certainly not serious in those ." All good all fun all the time " . My coined phrase . That is if the multi player format doesn't fade into oblivion . As it's interest is slowly ( or quickly fading ) Site wide . With the exception of course of a very few tight knit long time hard core groups . I would be surprised if they hadn't notice it as well . We better be careful and consider doing something extreme and drastic soon . If we don't want to lose that big part of the wheels that make this site fun .
Pretty clear to me if i want to hit TL as a goal . I will have to play a good segment of serious golf . Nose to the grindstone . I also have to be willing to commit to the monetary commitment for the balls it will take to get there . And a couple clubs . I also will have to walk away from the CC .Or at least step way back enough to not let it distract me .
But right now I'm not willing to agree to the paragraph above . I may never be .
All of this is not a negative biotch pitch . But a realistic overview of some reality that myself . And the state of WGT . From a few important areas of concern for me . And some other WGTers are facing .
There are many other areas that could be considered to be doing well and right on track .
There are also some other areas that are in sad shape . That I haven't addressed .
That others are aware of . And are likely concerned as well .
I do feel that with out a more proactive push from a huge amount of this WGT community . That a catastrophic negative decline could be inevitble . And also avoidable . if we get off our asses . Step up and not let things get worse . Work hard until the necessary efforts are made to effect positive change .
This is not doom and gloom . But at this rate it could be . And doesn't have to be .
Now do you want to know what I really think ? Lol .
