I don't know about you but for some reason I need music playing to help me concentrate. Not all music though. Right now I can play golf while listening to Josh Groban & Ronan Tynan. This is classical opera. Is anyone a fan of classical opera?

I would, but I keep forgetting to buy that CD. I'll have to borrow it from Crowe. ;)

In all honesty, I couldn't listen to music while playing. I'm too busy concentrating to even pay attention.

I will admit, however, that I do whistle to myself on the way down the fairway. Even after a poor drive.

It's usually something very out of context too, like Breakfast at Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something or Gun's in the Sky by INXS. You know, golf tunes... :)

Cheers,

Depends on the instrument. I would think that most would seriously get in the way. ;)

However, looking at it another way, it would be great if life had a soundtrack, wouldn't it? I mean, with background music, you'd immediately know whether to go for that 215 carry over water. If the Jaws music is playing, lay up, dude....

i actually love hitting balls and listening to music on the practice grounds. I find this is actually the only way i can concentrate on practicing. I can block out everybody around me hitting and i really am not concerned with what sound the club makes, i can always tell how i hit the ball by the feel and ball flight. Never tried it out on the course, always afraid i am gonna get pegged with a ball!!

Well in their defense it may have been Satan, but I doubt he'd be so full of himself as to need to appear on someone's record stating hwo much better he is then you, and how he could have his way wth your mother should he choose.

It's actually a good idea, while walking on the course and not playing your shots, or waiting for your partners to hit. I think I'll get myself a little mp3 player.

Mally, did you like Divine Intervention? My pref would be Seasons in the Abyss. Too bad Lombardi walked out of the band :p
