Before you over react it’s probably a good idea to consider any truth in this statement. “There’s a fine line between a hobby and an obsession,” says Bennett.
“Firstly, ask yourself if you’ve missed any significant events because you’ve been on the golf course.” This can be anything from birthdays and anniversaries to first steps and school plays. Basically, anything that you could have and should have planned to be present at. If you have, you’re golfing too much.
Bennett continues: “Secondly, simply count the number of hours you spend playing each week with the number of hours spent involved in your relationship – excluding sleeping.” If the balance is anything more than 20:80, you’re golfing too much.
“Any feelings of injustice are completely unwarranted on your behalf and you’re not being fair on her,” says Bennett. “Most men feel unjustly treated because they compare their time spent on golf to the time they spent on it when they were single without any commitments.” This is dangerous because if you don’t change soon you will be single without any commitments.
