I'm sure we all have a few that we throw around in our regular foursomes - like the Sister-in-Law - you're on, but you know you shouldn't be.

What are some of your favorites?

    Chunky ****.................hitting fat because you swing like a primate.
    Sally....................leaving it short on a putt.
    Newman.............you play a decent shot but it ends up in a hazard or short sided or takes a bad bounce.

    The condom shot. It's safe, but it doesn't feel good.
