The last time I golfed I only hit two good balls all day...and THAT was when I stepped on a rake in the sand trap.

I’ve never tried golfing, and after watching the video, have no intention of ever doing so!

Thanks....

Very old joke:

Q: Why did they name it "golf?"
A: Because all the other 4 letter words were taken.

Haha....I can honestly say that I’m one of the few golfers who has caught my own drive (twice)...

Once was a pop-up into a stiff breeze and the other was a ricochet off a nearby tree.

I have also hit the flagstick in two on a par five (nearly making the shot) and the ball came to rest 5 feet from the hole in two. I promptly 3 putted for par.

Gotta love the game :^)

You’re lucky, it can be seductive and always expensive in both time and money. I used to play a lot but for the last 11 years I have mostly only golfed at free (for me) golf outings, usually twice a year. When you’re hitting them well there is no better place to be than on the golf course. (9 HCP at my peak)

Ouch.

Golf is like a pretty lady who flirts with you, and might even let you touch her soft arm, then does a kung fu punch right in your throat.

.....couldn't hit the ball to save his life....says he finally "just picked up the G-d---n ball and threw it".

Since my occasional foursome doesn't play for money anymore - we have adopted some new rules to speed play and have a laugh. A throw of the ball is authorized in lieu of a shot except when onto the green.

If you skip the ball across one of the three ponds on our course...you get the distance of the shot but you don't heve to count the shot (meaning a well-skipped tee shot can put you in the fairway laying zero).

We have a few others but those are my favorites.

We lived alongside a small course when I was younger. There was a guy trying to tee off one day. Couldn’t hit that ball. So we started ribbing him. He could sure throw those clubs a long way.

When I worked at a golf course during college, I saw a lady duff her tee shot off to the right ... directly into her kid’s head. It wasn’t pretty. He’s was out for quite some time and had to be taken to the hospital. I don’t think that lady ever picked up a club again.

LOL! I was playing with my dad once on a par five and was waiting for him to take his shot while I was on the green. He hit a tree branch, broke it, and it went into the hole.

He came running up: (Boop), where did it go?

Dad, you just got an eagle!

He still has the ball. I told him he needs to have it bronzed.

What makes golf hard...is the ball sits still...staring at you...chiding you like a little league catcher during your at bat...”C’mon..it’s only 240 to the green...go for it....sissy.”..”You gonna let Joe and his persimmon driver out drive you big boy.”...”I know it looks like a 6 iron to you...but the pros hit 8 iron from this distance.”

Golf ain’t about who can hit the farthest....it’s about who can finish the course with the lowest number of strokes. But most folks cannot deal with that reality.

That’s why we see grown men break 1,000 dollar drivers over their knee...Babe Ruth like swings resulting in wiffs and mishits so bad they defy physics.

I enjoy golf. That’s because I know I’m not any good and refuse to get mad when I hit a bad shot. With that attitude, it provides 4 hours of light exercise and a bit of recreation with a few friends.

My dad sent the following joke:

The newlywed couple have just returned from their honeymoon and the husband is out in the garage cleaning his golf clubs.

The wife looks on for a while and then sighs and says “Honey, now that we're married you really don't need to go golfing any more. I think we should sell those clubs.”

Husband get a pained, horrific look on his face, to which the wife replies in a panic “Darling, whats wrong?”

Husband: “For a moment you were starting to sound like my ex-wife.”

Wife: “EX-WIFE! You never told me you were married before!”

Husband: “I wasn't!”
