Having Fun With Golf

Golf does not always have to be a serious game. There are ample opportunities to play jokes of friends in and around the golf course. I generally do not ‘pull’ jokes on my playing partners, but over the years I have seen some pretty funny things. Of course it is a matter of perspective sometimes, but for the most part, it was intended to be fun.

Golf for Laughs

If you can’t laugh at yourself, then how can you laugh at anybody else? I think people see the human side of you when you do that.  Payne Stewart

Most golf blogs are serious and try to discuss different aspects of the golf swing. Some try to sell something or other, and yet some only focus on just the mental part of golfing. Also, some blogs, like this one, try to talk about all aspects of golf, even the lighter side. Sometimes its a bit overwhelming and most of the people forget that golf is about having fun!  If you are not having fun golfing, then why play!

I thought it would be nice to look at the lighter side of golf.  So here it goes…….

Four old men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf.  The pro asked, “Did you guys have a good game today?”  The first old guy said, “Yes, I had three riders today.” The second old guy said, “I had the most riders ever. I had five.”  The third old guy said, “I had seven riders, the same as last time.”  The last old man said, “I beat my old record. I had 12 riders today.”  After they went into the locker room, another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said, “I’ve been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what’s a rider?”  The pro said, “A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to actually get in the golf cart and ride to it.”Howard P. Curtis

A golfer standing on a tee overlooking a river sees a couple of fishermen and says to his partner, “Look at those two idiots fishing in the rain.”

A pretty pathetic golfer was getting frustrated with his lousy game and began blaming his mistakes on his experienced caddie. As the round came to an end, the golfer said, “You have to be the worst caddie in the whole wide world.” To which the caddie replied, “I don’t think so, sir. That would be too much of a coincidence.”

Q: Are you a scratch player?
A: I sure am – every time I hit the ball I scratch my head and wonder where it went.

Brand new golf balls are attracted to water, and the power of the attraction is in direct proportion to how much the balls cost.

I hope you had a good laugh!

I am a grateful golfer!  See you on the links!
