OK, safe to say we all love golf, but how much?


Let's confess what we've missed out on so we could play golf, and let our fellow golf spies forgive or not forgive!


Suppose I have to start,


A wedding (not my own). I missed the whole ceremony after my competition tee time was rearranged. Didn't turn up until after the speeches....


I'm a bad person. I expect no forgiveness.

Really never bailed on anything. I don't really enjoy playing golf when I feel like I shouldn't be playing.

Trying to think - I'm sure that my wife could come up with something but honestly I think I've been reasonable about balancing golf time with wife time and family time.


I'm also able to offer Holy Absolution for anyone who is sincerely repentant. If you google me you will see that I've written several articles on that topic. :)

I quit golf for almost 6 years when first child born.For me,Jesus and family are always first.When he was older, I felt more comfortable playing again.But when younger, golf never even was in the equation.I spent every moment with him that I can.If a family crisis came up, I would leave the course immediately.Even if on track to shoot a course record.Im sure course record would never happen.So let's say under 85

I support his decision 100%, family is always first. That said, if I was him I may donate a few dollars in scholarships to hold the ceremony on Tuesday!!

Golf is secondary to important life events. Friends, family etc trump anything golf.
