    ...you've been waiting on every shot for the last 5-6 holes on a group of 8 people, 4 caddies and 4 players. At least two of the players have completely lost their game, past the point where they manage to get the ball back in play on first try. Nevertheless they keep looking for every ball and take their time over every single shot - and the group moves forward at turtle speed. And then, as the clouds are getting darker and rain starts coming down, one of the players walks back from the green towards where you stand, waiting for the green to clear: "I have to hit a second ball... you see, we're playing this Ryder Cup format match"... You have 7 holes left of the round, you know for certain that it will be dark and you'll be soaking wet before you reach the club house. And all you're looking forward to by now is a pint in the club house.

    You’re on the hole farthest from the clubhouse and not a port-a-John anywhere on the golf course and your colitis acts up. And your wet wipes in your bag have dried out.

    It is raining. It has been raining for 36 hours. Courses are closed. However...my old knee is playing up so an ideal opportunity to rest, have physio and test the quality of my beer selection.

    When you catch a group on 11 and watch this threesome hit no less than 3 balls apiece none of which came close to finding the fairway. They never did let us play through was brutal to play and even more brutal to watch. I would bet one of them lost 18 balls on the back 9. Well let me rephrase that he left 18 balls cause if he hit it bad he didn't go get them. Thank good ness or would have been worse searching for some of them lol.

    You tee off 25 minutes after the group ahead of you...then have to wait for them to clear the green on the 2nd hole.

    You are on the tee box talking to the ranger and the group in front of you each takes a mulligan after parking their carts almost on the tee box and he says nothing.

    Also, you drive 45 minutes to a course and they do not take credit cards and no one in the group has enough cash to pay for the green fees.

    When it's the middle of league playoffs, they have just aerated the entire course, you are playing the 9-hole side of the course that punishes your shot shape and your opponent with a 34 course handicap makes the crowd pleasing 2 for 1 on the par-3 second hole.

    When you show up for a tournament wearing shorts and a polo shirt, and a few holes in the cold front that was forecast for that evening shows up early, bringing wind, rain, drastically lower temperatures, and a corresponding drop in motivation.

    You get matched up with a group that has no business being on a course. Not only are they slow and terrible golfers but they have no idea how to keep moving along during the round (leaving carts really far away from the green, forgetting clubs, etc.). Makes for an interesting day.

    You know you're in for a long day when:
    1. You forgot your putter because you were practicing at home or work.
    2. You don't have enough balls
    3. The range session prior to tee off was bad
    4. The starter is kind of a dick then you mouth off to him
    5. There's a frost delay
    6. They guys in front of you are either drunk or "soooooooooo hung....ovahhhhhhh"
    7. You're walking but, you gotta take a dump and the first porta pottie is 7 holes in
    8. You're playing Torrey Pines with tourists in front of you
    9. You're playing Torrey Pines and the tourists in front of you are taking selfies
    10. You send a ball a hair too far because you grabbed a 6 instead of 9 and maybe hit one of the tourists at Torrey Pines cart then yell, "Locals only!".
    11. Let me know when to stop

    Preach.

    I coach high school golf now and never tried out in high school because I figured the team had to be filled with +4 handicaps. I would have easily made the team and probably been able to play in college. Total missed opportunity on my part, but chalk it up to naïveté.

    Trying to get my own game back so I can play Mid-am tournaments in the next 2 years.

    I get pissed every time I see a parent forcing a kid to play from the white tees instead of going up to the 100 yard marker at least and letting them learn the part of the game that matters most.

    I have a 5 year old girl. I want her to first have fun more than anything. Second, have her grip correct. Otherwise, swing as hard as you want kid and learn.
