How does your golf travel add up? Are you mostly a stay-at-home guy, or have you played in a lot of different places. Let’s try this: Give yourself one point for each state or country outside your home in which you have played a round of golf.
I had thought about counting foreign countries as two, but given geographical disparities, it wouldn’t work for a US player, versus, say, a European one. Texas, for example, is larger than France, so going to the Lone State State is a bit like visiting an entirely different country (and in more ways than one).
Here’s my list, for a total score of 15.
Away: Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, Iowa, Illinois (this list has been updated as of Dec. 2014). This past summer I added Iowa and Illinois).
Plus, out-of-country: The Bahamas (Fall 2014)
That’s actually probably not a very good score.
I need to get out more.
