Re: Golfers

Used to play with some builder pals of mine, 6.45am tee off and by the 2nd or 3rd hole you'd hear the zip bag open and a "TEEST" can of beer, at about 7.15 am WTF!!

Very funny, some of them used to play pranks, one of the holes you'd see the flag at the top of the hill (just the tip) and one guy went missing, first guy takes aim and the flag moves 5 feet to the left, LOL (guy at the top of the hill was holding the flag walking back and forth)

They had a name for the extra club (the leather wedge) meaning they'd kick the ball from the rough on to the fairway....or at least that was the accusation.

Re: Golfers

Lol... The 'leather wedge' - I just call it a foot wedge.

With the right group of guys, pranks on a golf course can be hilarious! If you get a debbie-downer type, it turns into a looong day.

For a while, I played with a guy who always had to be angry at something. Pace of play, speed of the greens, people in front of us, poor weather, whatever - he just had to be angry. I didn't necessarily mind it until one day he decided to be angry at me. He decided to get angry about my handicap and that it wasn't fair I got strokes. He was mad that I 'didn't know the rules' and berated me constantly throughout the round. Mind you - it was a friendly game with nothing on the line - no betting etc. He began ripping me for being an uneducated public golfer. That round ended our friendship.

No need for anger like that on a golf course!

We had some guys who had fun, unstrapping the golf bag from the cart, or swapping peoples clubs around. Mostly harmless fun and was a good time. Lots of needling on the course - trying to mess with each other's heads. Always some smack talk.

I heard about a pretty good prank - putting suntan lotion on peoples grips. Actually, that's a pretty mean one - you can't play when that happens! Most times you can't clean them well enough, you've gotta replace the grips. A buddy was playing college golf and someone on the team did that. It was hilarious hearing the story, but man, I would never do that to someone else!

Re: Golfers

Just got back from a 5 day golf trip in Beaufort, SC. Wow, it's gorgeous down there, and it was also the first time I saw gators in person on the golf course. Some of those were HUGE (said in the Trump voice) and if I was even near the water I would take a penalty stroke and drop another ball.

There were about 16 guys and we played a Ryder Cup format, which was incredibly fun. If you've never had to play alternate shot with your partner, you're really missing a fun, scrambling style experience. I was paired with a great guy who was about 70 years old and beginning to struggle with Parkinsons - but while his hands would shake as he addressed the ball, once he got into his swing he did a very good job playing. Believe it or not, he was a really good putter! We had a blast and made a fairly solid team.

It was a fantastic way to take my mind off of reality and just enjoy myself for a few days. The trouble is now I want to spend money on a new driver as I made the mistake of trying my buddy's Taylor Made driver, and magically gained about 15 yards.

Re: Golfers

I'd be cautious to play it as it lies.
