For sample adults who had participated in golf in the past 2 weeks (EXGOLF), EXGOLFMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent playing gold each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in golfing, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you go golfing?" (EXGOLFNO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend golfing each time?" EXGOLFMIN reports the answer to this last question.
