Someone asked me the other day if I would play golf every day if I had the necessary time and resources. I found this question to be ironic as I often use the hashtag #18_365 in my Instagram posts. The hashtag stands for 18 holes a day, 365 days a year, a concept created by Adidas Golf to be a rally cry for golfers who don’t let weather stand in their way of the game they love.
My answer to this question was that I would absolutely play golf every day of the year. Let's break this down real quick. Starting with the holidays... I can always get up early and play on Christmas, and the course is usually wide open on Thanksgiving. However, I might have to play in the dark on my anniversary and the wife's birthday. Then there is the issue of weather. Even here in Seattle, I would get around 201 days with no measurable precipitation, so those are easy.
But what about the days when mother nature gets nasty? What would I do on those days? The answer is simple... I would play in the rain, I would play in the snow, I would play in the wind, I would play in the heat, and then I would play in the rain some more. Even if no one else will play, I will.
They make golf umbrellas, they make rain pants, and rain gloves, There is even Clima Heat and Clima Cool for taking on blizzards or the Arizona desert in July.
In conclusion, sign me up for the unlimited time and resources to play unlimited golf! In the meantime, I will just play when I get the chance, even if no one else will.
