I would be honest with them up front and see what they say. Golf is not an easy game to learn on the fly. I’ve played for 5+ years and am still not very good

You can go but make sure to pick up your ball after reaching a double bogey and don’t slow down the group! People can tolerate bad golfers but not slow golfers who think they need to finish out for their 10 on a hole.

Agree with A1, I've played golf for about 6 years and I'm still shooting a 95 (basically 30% more shots than I'm supposed to). Most people don't care but you just have to play at their pace, and maybe take a separate cart to pickup your ball and drop it next to the best shot on each hole if it ends up being really bad

funny

Time to take a lesson. I’m shooting 95 after 6 months with lessons.

I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast?

Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!

2nd year associate here (going into my third). Will have about 114k in student loan debt at the turn of the year. I have roughly 60k in my investment account, 45k in 401k and an adequate balance in my emergency fund. I also contribute to my HSA and will cross the threshold for investing that in January. During 0% on student loans i have been using every spare dine to pay that down. My question is should that continue or should I tone that back and start investing more? Cont’d in comments...
