    I do play golf...
    Could you tell me when I must use this form?
    How can I translate it in Italian?
    Thank you.

    Re: I do play

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Example:
    You play golf but your friends don't know it.
    Then your friends talk about golf and you say something as well.
    A guy says:
    "What do you know? You don't even play golf."
    You answer:
    "I do play golf."
    So you just emphasize the fact that you play golf.
    It's similar to:
    "Of course I play golf." -> Maybe you could use this for Italian.

    I hope I could help you.

    Cheers!
