When the single you are paired with shakes your hand vigorously on the first tee and enquires "say, have you ever heard of Amway?"   Rob

when you buy new irons off ebay and can't make good contact or a playable ball flight..   run to the truck at the turn, get your babies back and you're back in action.  

Agreed. We had, I dunno, maybe 15 kids on my high school team and probably only 4 of them could break 45 for 9 holes consistently at the time. I was not one of them as I had only been playing for abou

You know it's going to be a long day...…..when you're playing partner turns out to be a lost-ball hunter, and spends all his time in the weeds and bushes.

Just for fun and not meant to degrade anyone. Just finish the sentence above.

 

Here's mine:

 

"you are joined up with a threesome who, at 7:05 in the morning, are already chugging beers and are worried that the 24 pack they bought won't be enough."

 

"... I am playing a tournament round and paired with a USGA rules official who assumes I don't know the rules and explains the rules every time I am about to hit a ball"

When playing as a single you get paired up with a group 3 old men... then the youngest old man of the bunch introduces himself with the caveat, "I'm 88 and have a bad case of vertigo, so I tend to go a little slower."

 

True story, and it happened to me just yesterday.

You go three under across three holes at Oakmont and ya come out of it 2 down, losing two and halving the third. It was actually a short day as I lost an Inter-Club Championship match to Jay Sigel 5&4. We lost the IC-Championship, a RC format event, by 1/2 point, giving Oakmont their 12th straight Championship.

 

It was a both a short and long arse day, hahaha.

 

I would get a measure of redemption when the following year, 1994, I would captain our team to a Victory, stopping Oakmont’s run at a dozen, and defeating Duke Delcher in the deciding match on the 23rd hole.

 

Karma?

 

Cheers?

RP

 

Later Edit: 10/07/2018, 10:07am~ Madison informed me that it was in fact 6&5, not 5&4, lol. Apologies as the years have not been kind to my memory. Who knows, if I live to be 80yo, maybe I would have taken Jay to the 22nd hole, making my victory the following year over Duke the ultimate act of Karma ??? Have a great week, RP II

In the end, only three things matter~ <br /><br />How much that you loved...<br /><br />How mightily that you lived...<br /><br />How gracefully that you accepted both victory & defeat...<br /><br /><br /><br />GHIN: Beefeater 24

When you're paired with a supposed "professional" golfer who starts complaining about the last course he played having really tight fairways and really deep rough...and your course has...wait for it...really tight fairways and very deep rough...ruh roh, Shaggy! "So, you've never played my course before, (rhymes with Shill)? Any interest in some side action?"

You've drawn the new guy who resembles Magilla the Gorilla as a partner in the monthly foursomes (alternating shots) and he has in his bag 4 clubs:

 

An M4 driver with the price sticker still on it, and the crown already destroyed by sky marks.

A no name 5 & 8 iron.

A Ping Pal 2 putter were the grip has been replaced with electricians tape.

 

And he DOES NOT have a single digit handicap.

When one of the people you get paired with use the club to align their shoulders and feet on the first tee box.

 

 

 

My wife's mom does this and she plays twice a week and is probably better than half the people in this thread.

 

You'll be telling us she has headcovers on her irons next...........

I once invited my sister and brother-in-law (never golfed) to play with me and my wife (long time golfers)….don't know what I was thinking; I thought after a few missed shots, mis-hits, that they'd pick up, but instead they wanted to hit every shots! Turned into a 7.5-hour round, where we had to rush because it was starting to get dark. I looked at my wife afterwards and said "if I ever suggest we golf with non-golfers again, do me a favor and smack me one!"

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
