I rarely walk off the golf course. However, every now and again I just get the feeling it is time to go. So, I pack up my clubs and off I go. If I am playing with someone, I wait until the end of the nine before making an excuse to leave. This is very rare for me to leave, but it does happen.
I was curious and decided to ask The Grateful Golfers if they have ever walked off the golf course and this is the choices I gave them:
It became very apparaent that my list was very short. It started a great conversation, however slightly short sighted. Other reasons why golfers walked off the course quickly grew. Here is what they said:
- Beverage cart ran out of Coors Light;
- Threw their back out;
- Hauled away in an ambulance;
- Thunder and lightning;
- Lost 7 balls in 3+ holes due to the hosel rockets;
- Mad about play and not having fun;
- I may or may not have ran out of balls in a tournament
#Yips #woods #Water; and
- Wife went into labour.
As you can see, there are many reasons why golfers will walk off the course. I never thought it would be so varied and as I stated earlier, I completely underestimated the reasons.
Thank you to everyone who responded. I found several very funny that elicited a good laugh.
Have you ever walked off the golf course?
