Playing less = better results?

So recently due to work i have not been playing as much, i played about 10-20 rounds a week before, and am now playing about 3-4...I feel that I am playing better, and my scores indicate that...anyone else have the same reactions?

Uh, playing 10-20 rounds a week? Yeah...I would imagine playing less than that would be good. That sounds like overkill, especially on a mental level.

I find my best golf to be played in the 2-4 rounds a week range. Any more than that and I just need a day or two off to do something else.

I was playing 13 rounds a week most weeks (2 a day except on league day, then just 1). Since I've become unemployed I've only been getting about 4 rounds per week and it seems like every time I go out I set a new personal best score. I think It's mostly because my arm is never sore anymore.

im just trying to figure out how you would possibly fit 20 rounds into a week. if they're nine hole courses, i can see that. personally, i feel dead if i try and play two 18 hole courses back to back. ha, maybe im just not in the best shape ever.

I play at least 14 a week, two a day. Played 4 different 18s in one day last week. I should play less to do better if it is working for others!

I play at least two round pretty much every day, with some days being 4 or 5 rounds. As a high school student I'm young and in good shape and I have lots of time in the summer.

Think of it this way.It's a lot like working out.

You don't want to workout the same muscle groups two days in a row right?The same applies to disc golf.Play one day and rest a day.Give your muscles a rest to keep building/maintaining the muscles needed for disc golf.

I don't know that you need to rest every other day as you would for weight lifting, because you really shouldn't be using much muscle power with good technique. With that said, it is for sure good to take a rest day every once in awhile. It makes you more excited to play the next time and can help your mental focus.
