I enjoy the excercise. I always walk nine and I have walked many 18's as well.
I play with a group of about 7 guys and we do a bunch of charity tournament during the year too.
If it was just a game I would have quit a long time ago.
Unless you play I think that you don't know that golf is also a game against ourselves. What we did this time and got a par was crappy compared to the week before but got bogie. I encourage and crap on the guys I play with but I'm always competing with myself if that makes sense
