103 Excuses to Play Golf
A fellow comes home after his regular Saturday golf game and his wife asks why he doesn't include Brian Kennedy in the games anymore.
The husband asks, "Would you want to play with a guy who regularly cheats, swears up a storm over everything, lies about his score, and has nothing good to say about anyone else on the course - ever?"
"Of course, I wouldn't." replies the wife.
"Well," says the husband, "apparently neither does Brian Kennedy."
A married man was having an affair with his secretary.
One day, their passions overcame them and they took off for her house, where they made passionate love all afternoon.
Exhausted from the wild sex, they fell asleep, awakening around 8:00pm. As the man threw on his clothes, he told the woman to take his shoes outside and rub them through the grass and dirt. Mystified, she nonetheless complied.
He slipped into his shoes and drove home. "Where have you been?" demanded his wife.
"Darling, I can't lie to you. I've been having an affair with my secretary and we've been having sex all afternoon. I fell asleep and didn't wake up until eight o'clock."
The wife glanced down at his shoes and said, "You liar! You've been playing golf!".
Big Shooter Quotes
Back It Up
Arnold Palmer is playing in a big tournament and comes to a 235-yard par-3.
After some deliberation, he takes out his 3 iron and sails the ball 20 feet over the pin and backs it up to within 3 feet of the pin.
A fan in the crowd said "Mr. Palmer, how do you make a 3-iron back up like that?"
Mr. Palmer replied, "Do you own a 3 iron?"
The fan said, "Yes, sir I do."
"How far do you hit it?" said Palmer. About 160 yards was his reply.
Palmer calmly said, "What the hell do you want it to back up for?"
For most of the round the golfer had argued with his caddy about club selection, but the caddy always prevailed.
Finally, on the 17th hole, a 185-yard par three into the wind, the caddy handed the golfer a 4-wood and the golfer reacted.
"I think it's a 3-iron," said the golfer.
"No, sir it's a 4-wood," said the caddy.
"Nope, it's definitely a 3-iron."
So, the golfer set up, took the 3-iron back slowly, and struck the ball perfectly. It tore through the wind, hit softly on the front of the green, and rolled up two feet short of the pin.
"See," said the caddy. "I told you it wasn't enough club."
A guy out on the golf course takes a high-speed ball right in the crotch.
Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground.
As soon as he could manage, he took himself to the doctor.
He said "How bad is it Doc? I'm going on my honeymoon next week and my fiancée is still a virgin in every way."
The doctor told him, "I'll have to put your penis in a splint to let it heal and keep it straight. It should be okay next week."
So, he took four tongue depressors and formed a neat little 4-sided bandage, and wired it all together; an impressive work of art. The guy mentions none of this to his girl, marries and goes on their honeymoon.
That night in the motel room she rips open her blouse to reveal a gorgeous set of breasts. This was the first time he saw them.
She said, "You're the first; no one has ever touched these breasts."
He immediately drops his pants and replies.
"Look at this, it's still in the CRATE!"
Heaven or Hell
An ardent golfer dies and finds himself at the pearly gates.
St. Peter tells the man he has lived an exemplary life and that he can go right in.
The man asks, "St. Peter, where is the golf course?"
"I'm terribly sorry," replies St. Peter, "but that's one thing we don't have here."
The man turns and decides that he will see if the situation is any better in hell. On the road to hell, he is greeted by the devil who has already heard of the golfer's rejection of heaven.
"This way, sir," says the devil, "the finest tournament-quality 18 holes you are likely to find this side of Augusta, Georgia."
The golfer looks around and agrees that it is the finest course he has ever seen and decides he'd rather spend eternity there than in heaven, so he signs up for the full package.
"So," he says to the devil, "why don't you go get me some clubs and balls and I'll have the game of my after-life."
"I'm sorry, sir, we don't have any."
"What?" says the man. "No balls or clubs for a fine course like this?"
"No, sir," says the devil fiendishly, "that's the hell of it."
Nick and Lou head out for a quick round of golf. Since they are short on time, they decide to play only 9 holes.
Nick says to Lou, "Let's say we make the time worth the while, at least for one of us, and spot $5 on the lowest score for the day."
Lou agrees and they enjoy a great game. After the 8th hole, Lou is ahead by 1 stroke, but cuts his ball into the rough on the 9th.
"Help me find my ball; you look over there," he says to Nick.
After 5 minutes, neither has had any luck, and since a lost ball carries a two-stroke penalty, Lou pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to the ground.
"I've found my ball!" he announces triumphantly.
Nick looks at him forlornly, "After all the years we've been friends, you'd cheat me on golf for a measly five bucks?"
"What do you mean cheat? I found my ball sitting right here!"
"And a liar, too!" Nick says with amazement.
"I'll have you know I've been standing on your ball for the last five minutes!"
It's Called Golf
One golfer asked his friend, "Why are you so late in arriving for your tee time?"
His friend replied, "It's Sunday. I had to toss a coin between going to church or playing golf."
"Yes," continued the friend, "but that stills doesn't tell me why you are so late."
"Well," said the fellow, "It took over 25 tosses to get it right!"

Hole in One
Jimmy had been playing for twenty years but never had a hole-in-one.
As he was blasting away in a sand trap one day and he voiced the thought. "I'd give anything to get a hole-in-one."
"Anything?" came a voice from behind. Jimmy turned to see a grinning, red-clad figure with horns and a tail.
"What did you have in mind?" Jimmy asked.
"Would you give up half your sex life?" asked the devilish figure.
"Yes, Yes I would." Jimmy replied.
"It's a deal then." and the figure faded from sight.
On the very next hole he did it!
The ball soared from his club in a perfect arc right into the hole for his first ever hole-in-one. And amazingly, he aced every other hole that he played the rest of the day!
At the end of the round, the figure in red appeared again. "Now for our bargain," he said. "You remember you must give up half your sex life."
Jimmy frowned. "That gives me a bit of a problem," he said.
"You're not backing out of this," cried the figure. "We struck a bargain and you agreed to it."
"Yes, of course. But I do have a problem. Which half of my sex life do you want ... the thinking or the dreaming?"

One of the golfers grabs the old man and says, " What's going on?"
The old guy says, "She's a nymphomaniac from the asylum, she keeps trying to escape, and us attendants are trying to catch her."
The golfer says, "What about the guy with the buckets of sand?"
The old guy says, "That's his handicap. He caught her last time."
John and Bob were two of the bitterest rivals at the club. Neither man trusted the other's arithmetic.
One day they were playing a heated match and watching each other like hawks. After holing out on the fourth green and marking his six on the scorecard, John asked Bob "What'd you have?
Bob went through the motions of mentally counting up. "Six!" he said and then hastily corrected himself - " No, no....a five."
Calmly John marked the scorecard, saying out loud "Eight!" "Eight?" Bob said, "I couldn't have had eight." John said,
"Nope, you claimed six, then changed it to five, but actually you had seven." "Then why did you mark down eight?" asked Bob.
John told him, "One stroke penalty, for improving your lie."
Really Good Player
Dick brings a friend to play golf with two of his regular golf buddies.
His buddies ask him if his new friend can play golf and Dick replies - "He's very good"
The new guy hits his first tee shot into the bush, so his buddies look at Dick and say - "You said your friend was a good golfer!"
Dick says - "Just watch him play."
They see the ball fly out of the bush onto the green where the new guy takes two putts and makes an easy par.
On the second hole par-3, he hits the ball into the lake. The two buddies look at Dick again and says - "You said this guy was good"
Dick replies - "Just watch, he's a great player."
The new guy walks right into the lake after his ball. Three minutes pass and there's no sign of him. Suddenly, an outstretched hand comes out of the water and Dick's buddies tell him to dive in to save his drowning friend.
Dick replies - "You don't understand, that just means he wants a 5 iron".

The man said to the dentist, "Doctor, I'm in one hell of a big hurry! I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf. So, forget about the anesthetic and just pull the tooth and be done with it. I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!"
The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this sure is a very brave man, asking me to pull his tooth without using anything to kill the pain."
So, the dentist asked him, "Which tooth is it, sir?"
The man turned to his wife and said, "Open your mouth, Honey, and show the doctor which tooth hurts."

"Yeah, it went in the hole," the joker answered with a straight face. The fat one looked at him unbelievingly.

Then he turned, ran down the fairway and as he neared his partner, the group on the green heard him shout:

Finally, the waitress approached the gang and said, "You guys should lighten up. That group you're cussing out – well, they can't see. They are all blind golfers and I think it's great they can even play!"
The first player in the gang felt terrible and told the waitress, "You're right, tell you what., send them over a round of drinks on me!"
The second guy told the waitress to put the blind golfers' lunches on his tab. The third guy sent a caddie to the pro shop for four sleeves of balls to present to the blind golfers.
Everyone looked at the fourth guy. "Screw 'em", he grumbled, "Couldn’t they have played last night?"

Thinking he'd try the game, he asked the local pro for lessons, explaining that he knew nothing whatever of the game.
The pro showed him the stance and swing, then said, "Just hit the ball toward the flag on the first green."
The novice teed up and smacked the ball straight down the fairway and onto the green, where it stopped inches from the hole.
"Now what?" the fellow asked the speechless pro. After he was able to speak again the pro finally said, "Uh... you're supposed to hit the ball into the cup."
"Oh great! NOW you tell me," said the beginner in a disgusted tone.

He played a little when he was vice president mostly because Eisenhower was so passionate about the game.

"That's very good, your golf is certainly improving," said Kissinger.
"I was bowling, Henry," Nixon replied.

Mac invited his friend Jimmy to play at his new club. Since Jimmy had never played the course before, Mac pointed out the trouble spots and where to aim on the first hole.
Jimmy teed up, addressed the ball, took a couple of waggles and took a vicious swing. He hit a foot behind the ball, tore up the tee box and totally missed the ball. Unphased he stepped back, took a couple practice swings and again addressed his ball. This time his swing missed everything.
He stepped back from his ball again, looked at Mac and said - "Boy, this is a really tough course!"

Yes, Becky, I really want to know. Please..."
"Well, all right. Yes, 3 times..."
"Three? Well, when were they?" he asked.
"Well, Sam, remember when you were 35 years old and you really wanted to start your own business and no bank would give you a loan? Remember, then one day the bank president himself came over to the house and signed the loan papers, no questions asked?"
"Oh, Becky, you did that for me! I respect you even more than ever, to do such a thing for me. So, when was number 2?"
"Well, Sam, remember when you had that last heart attack and you were in need of that very tricky operation, and no surgeon would touch you? Then remember how Dr. DeBakey came all the way up here, to do the surgery himself, and then you were in good shape again?"
"I can't believe it! Becky, you should do such a thing for me, to save my life. I couldn't have a more wonderful wife. To do such a thing, you must really love me, Darling. I couldn't be more moved. So, all right then, when was number 3?"
"Well, Sam, remember a few years ago, when you really wanted to be president of the golf club and you were 17 votes short?"
Two golfers join up at the first tee and each explains that due to a psychological problem, they play slightly differently than most golfers.
They soon learn that they both have the same doctor who has prescribed a game of golf using an imaginary golf ball to reduce stress. And so they tee off with their imaginary balls.
After a day of splitting fairways and hitting nothing less than eagles, birdies and pars, they reach the 18th hole. The first one indicates because they are equal in their score that he should hit first. So, he tees off with his imaginary ball.
"Look at that, a beautiful shot just on the edge of the green"
The second guy hits his imaginary ball and indicates that it has also landed on the edge next to the other ball. The first guy lines up and drains his 20-footer to the bottom of the cup.
"You wouldn't believe it, my ball just rolled into the cup, I win."
The second guy responds, "You won't believe it either, you just hit my ball."
A Mac and Jimmy were playing their home course.

"Did you hit her with that golf club?"

"How many times did you hit her?" "I don't know.
Five, six, seven . . . Put me down for a five."
In the 16th century, most everything was transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizer, so large shipments of manure were common.
It was shipped dry, because it weighed less but once water hit it, fermentation began which produced methane gas as a by-product.
The manure was stored in bundles below deck and once wet with sea water, methane began to build up.
The first time someone came below at night with a lantern.... BOOOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what had happened. Afterwards, the bundles of manure were stamped with the term "Ship High In Transit" which directed the crew to stow it in the upper decks so that any water that came into the hold would not reach this volatile cargo and produce the explosive gas.
Thus evolved the term "S.H.I.T " (Ship High In Transit) which has come down through the centuries and is still in use today. You probably did not know the true history of this word.
Neither did I. I always thought it was a golf term.
The room was full of pregnant women and their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing.
The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan. The teacher then announced, "Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!"
The room really got quiet. Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand. "Yes?" replied the teacher... "Is it all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"
“Dirty” Sayings in Golf
A foursome of elderly gentlemen went to the bar after a round of golf.
At the bar, the new Pro asked them "How did your game go today?"
The first said he had a good round with 25 riders. The second said he did OK with 16 riders. The third said not too bad since I had 10 riders.
The fourth was disappointed and said that he played badly and had only two riders.
The Pro was confounded by this term "rider" but not wanting to show his ignorance just smiled and wish them better golf the next time.
He then approached Jerry the bartender and asked "Can you tell me what does this term 'riders' mean?"
Jerry smiled and explained that a "rider" is when you have hit a shot long enough to take a ride on a golf cart.
Three men are in a bar, all very drunk, and talking to each other, bragging about their families.
The first guy says, "I have four sons. One more and I'll have a basketball team."
The second guy says, "That ain’t nothin', I have eleven sons. One more and I'll have a football team."
The third guy, the drunkest of them all replies "You guys haven't found true happiness. I have seventeen wives. One more and I'll have a golf course."

For months the archaeologists had been toiling deep in the Amazon jungle, clearing creepers and rampant, choking undergrowth from faint traces of a Lost City.
Their excitement mounted as the place's extraordinary purpose became evident. Broad winding avenues of giant flagstones had deep, narrow perfectly circular holes every few hundred yards.
It had to be…a golf course!
Any doubt was dispelled by the discovery of sculptures and paintings of human figures using primitive prototypes of irons or putters.
The next step was to interrogate local Indian tribesmen about traditions associated with the prehistoric golf club of the Lost City. And yes, it was soon learned that the tribes did have legends of the Old Ones who followed a daily ritual with clubs and balls, until routed by tragedy.
While watching a particularly wrinkled, aged elder chattering to the interpreter, a Professor murmured wistfully, "If only we knew why they gave up golf, making it vanish for centuries before rediscovery".
The interpreter nodded eagerly and relayed the query. The elder, surprised, made a sweeping gesture at the jungle, and replied. "Simple", was the translation, "they could not afford the green fees.”
Barbara Nicklaus discovered that is not easy being the wife of The Golden Bear, during the Tour Wife’s Championship.
At the end of the 9-hole event, her ears were ringing.

He told her 165 things in those nine holes.
Two women were put together as partners in the club tournament and met on the putting green for the first time.
After introductions, the first golfer asked, "What’s your handicap?"
"Oh, I’m a scratch golfer," the other replied.
"Really!" exclaimed the first woman, suitably impressed that she was paired up with her.
"Yes, I write down all my good scores and scratch out the bad ones!"
Father O'Malley was playing golf with a parishioner.
On the first hole, he sliced into the rough. His opponent heard him mutter "Hoover!" under his breath.
On the second hole, the ball went straight into a water hazard. "Hoover!" again, a little louder this time.
On the third hole, a miracle occurred and Father O'Malley's drive landed on the green only six inches from the hole! "Praise be to God!"
He carefully lined up the putt, but the ball curved around the hole instead of going in. "HOOVER!!!!"
By this time, his opponent couldn't withhold his curiosity any longer, and asked why the priest said "Hoover."
The Father replied "It's the biggest dam I know."
An alien spaceship hovered over a golf course and two aliens watched a solitary golfer in amazement
The golfer duffed his tee shot, shanked his second into the rough, took three to get out of the rough onto the fairway, sliced the next shot into the bushes, and then took a putter to get it out on the fairway again.
Meanwhile, one alien told the other that he must be playing some sort of weird game and they continued to observe the golfer.
The golfer then skulled a shot into a bunker by the green. He then took several shots to get out of the bunker and finally on to the green. He putted several times until he finally got into the hole.
At this point, the other alien told his partner, "Wow, now he is in serious trouble!"

Four married guys go golfing. While playing the 4th hole, the following conversation took place:
1st Guy: "You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out golfing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the house next weekend."
2nd Guy: "That's nothing, I had to promise my wife I will build a new deck for the pool."
3rd Guy: "Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife I will remodel the kitchen for her.
They continued to play the hole when they realized that the 4th guy hadn't said anything. So, they asked him, "You haven't said anything about what you had to do to be able to come golfing this weekend. What's the deal?"
4th guy: "I just set my alarm for 5:30 a.m. and when it went off, I shut off the alarm, gave the wife a nudge and said, 'golf course or intercourse?’”
And she said, "Wear your sweater".
The Finer Reasons to Golf
Two friends were having a discussion on the finer reasons why they like the game of golf. "What I like about golf," the first guy said, "is that you get to spend the day outdoors in the sun and fresh air, exercising your body and mind."
"Screw that," said his friend. "I'll tell you why golf is such a great game. Where else can a guy like me get to spend the day with a bunch of hookers and not have his wife kill him!"
A golfer playing in a two-man alternate shot tournament drove his tee shot to the edge of the green on a par-3 hole.
His partner, playing the second shot, managed to chip it over the green into a bunker. Undaunted, the first golfer recovers with a fine shot to within one foot of the hole.
The second golfer nervously putts, and sends the ball one foot past the hole, leaving the first golfer to sink the putt.
"Do you realize that we took five strokes on an easy par-3?" says the first golfer.
"Yes, and don't forget who took three of them!" answered his partner!
Two couples were enjoying a competitive, best ball match . . . wives against husbands with the losers buying lunch and a libation.
On the final hole, the match was all even and one of the wives had a long, breaking, 15-foot putt to win the match. She lined the ball up carefully and confidently stroked the winning putt.
Unfortunately, it stopped three inches short of the hole...dead on line.
Her husband thought that this was a riot and laughing said, "Right train, wrong ticket."
The wife failed to see the humor and not cracking a smile replied, "No sleeper cars on that train either".
Lose The Lion
A circus owner runs an ad for an amateur lion tamer with creative approaches and two people show up.
He’s a good looking, retired golfer in his late sixties and the other is a gorgeous babe in her mid-twenties.
The circus owner tells them; "Be careful in there - this is one ferocious lion. He ate my last tamer so you two had better be good and creative or you're likely to be lunch too.
Here's your equipment – a chair, a whip and a gun. Who wants to try their luck first?"
The girl says, "I'll go first." She walks past the chair, the whip and the gun and steps right into the lion's cage. The lion starts to snarl and pant and begins to charge her. About halfway there, she throws open her coat revealing her beautiful naked body.
The lion stops dead in his tracks, sheepishly crawls up to her and starts licking her feet and ankles. He continues to lick her entire body for several minutes and then rests his head at her feet.
The circus owner's jaw is on the floor. He says, "I've never seen a display like that in my life." He then turns to the retired golfer and asks; "Can you do that?"
The tough old golfer replies without hesitation; "No problem, just get that lion out of there first!!"
Half Hour Late
A couple of weeks ago, I played with new member who shot an even par 72.
We had fun during the round, so I asked him if he wanted to play next week.
He said: "Sure, but I might be a half hour late."
The following week he shows up right on time, and sets up on the first tee this time playing left-handed – and again he shoots a 72.
I asked him if he wanted to play again next week.
He replied: "Sure but I might be a half hour late."
I then asked him - "How come sometimes you play right-handed and other times you play left-handed."
He said: "When I wake up in the morning and my wife is sleeping on her left side, I play left-handed and if she is on her right side, then I play right-handed."
I then ask; "So, what if she is lying flat on her back?"
"Well, that's when I'll be a half hour late!" he replied.
A New York lawyer sent gifts to many of his clients. The gifts were sleeves of golf balls, inscribed with the lawyer's name.
One of the recipients sent an e-mail of thanks back to the lawyer saying, "That's the first time I've ever had a lawyer buy the balls."
Great Grandfather had been playing golf whenever possible for over 78 years.
Today had been no exception, he was out early and played his 18.
Directly after golf he attended his great, great grandson's wedding.
During the wedding reception, he was conversing with his great, great grandson, giving advice on having a happy marriage and a great life.
After a while the young groom said "Grandfather what's it like making love when you reach your age."
And he replied, "Well, it’s kinda like putting with a rope."
By The Rules
Two friends were playing golf one day.
They decided that they would adhere strictly to the rules with no improving their lie. After a few holes, one guy's ball landed on a cart path.
As he reached down to pick up his ball to get relief his friend said, "We agreed that we would not improve our lie."
No matter how much the first fellow tried to explain that he was entitled to this relief, the second fellow would not allow it. So, the man went to the cart to get a club.
As he stood over the ball, he took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement, taking out big chunks of blacktop and sending out lots of sparks!
Finally, after several practice swings, he took his shot. The ball took off and landed on the green about 6 feet from the pin.
"Great shot!" his friend exclaimed. "What club did you use?"
"YOUR 7-iron!" he replied.
An American went to Scotland and played golf with a newly acquainted Scottish golfer.
After a bad tee shot, he played a "Mulligan" which was an extremely good one.
He then asked the Scottish, "What do you call a Mulligan in Scotland?"
"We call it 3."
~ In 1923, do you know who was:
These men were considered some of the world's most successful men. At least, they found the secret of making money. Now almost 90 years later, do you know what became of these men?
In that same year of 1923, Gene Sarazen won most of the important golf
championships, including both the US Open and PGA Championship. He played golf
until he was 92 and died in 1999 at the age of 95 . . . and was financially
solvent at his death.
Conclusion: Stop worrying about business and start playing more
Two Scots, Rabby and Angus are playing golf and come upon a water hole.
Rabby tees up and hits it into the middle of the pond.
He reaches into his bag to find that he is out of balls.
He then asks Angus for a ball, and proceeds to hit it into the pond as well.
This goes on for 3 or 4 more times and when he asks Angus for yet another ball, Angus says."Rabby, these balls cost me a pretty penny,"
Rabby replies "Ouch, Angus if you cannee afford to play de game, ya should nee be out here"
Two men, a priest and an atheist, are playing golf.
At the green on the first hole, the atheist, lines up for a short two-foot putt, taps the ball, and the ball slips around the edge of the cup and does not go in. "Dammit, I missed!" exclaims the atheist.
The priest, then tells the atheist that he shouldn't curse, because God will punish the atheist for doing so.
On the second hole, the atheist tries a particularly aggressive chip shot to get the ball onto the green and instead lands in a sand bunker. "Dammit I missed!" exclaimed the atheist, to which the priest again issued a warning about God punishing those who curse.
The round continues in much the same way, with the atheist continuing to exclaim "Dammit I missed!" every time he hits an errant ball (which is quite often), and the priest continues to admonish him about God's wrath.
Finally, they get to the eighteenth hole and the score is tied. The atheist needs to make a two-foot putt in order to win. He taps the ball, and again he misses, and again, he curses his miss.
Before the priest can respond, the clouds in the sky open up, and a bolt of lightning shoots out and hits the priest, killing him.
Then, from the cloud comes a loud voice "Dammit, I missed."
Three golfing buddies died in an auto accident and went to heaven.
Upon arrival, they noticed the most beautiful golf course they have ever seen. St. Peter told them they were welcome to play the course, but he cautioned them with one rule: "Don't step on the ducks."
The men had blank expressions on their faces, and finally one of them said, "The ducks?"
"Yes," St. Peter Said. "There are millions of ducks walking around the golf course, and when one of them is stepped on, he squawks, and then the one next to him squawks, and soon they're all raising hell and it really breaks the tranquility. If you step on the ducks, you'll be punished."
The men start playing the course, and within 15 minutes, one of the guys stepped on a duck. The duck squawked, and soon there was a deafening roar of ducks quacking.
St. Peter appeared with an extremely homely woman and asked, "Who stepped on a duck?"
"I did," admitted one of the men. St. Peter immediately pulled out a pair of handcuffs and cuffed the man to the homely woman. "I told you not to step on the ducks," he said. "Now you'll be handcuffed together for eternity."
The two other men were very cautious not to step on any ducks, but a couple of weeks later, one of them accidentally did. The quacks were as deafening as before, and within minutes, St. Peter walked up with a woman who was even uglier than the other one. He determined who stepped on the duck by seeing the fear in the man's face, and he cuffed him to the woman. "I told you not to step on the ducks," St. Peter said. "Now you'll be handcuffed together for eternity."
The third man was extremely careful. Some days he wouldn't even move for fear of nudging a duck. After three months of this, he still hadn't stepped on a duck. St. Peter walked up to the man and had with him the most beautiful woman the man had ever seen. St. Peter smiled and without a word, handcuffed him to the beautiful woman and walked off.
The man, knowing that he would be handcuffed to this woman for eternity, let out a sigh and said, "What have I done to deserve this?"
The woman replied: "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck."
A father spoke to his son, "It's time we had a little talk, my son.
Soon, you will have urges and feelings you've never had before.
Your heart will pound and your hands will sweat.
You'll be pre-occupied and won't be able to think of anything else."
He added, "But don't worry, it's perfectly normal...it's called golf."
Earl won first prize at a Father's Day tournament which was an envelope.
When he opened the envelope, he was very surprised to find a voucher for a free visit to a brothel. He had never been to one before but he decided to go the next day even though he was very nervous.
The girls were very friendly and soon he found a lovely young lady and went with her to her room.
Five minutes later, she came running to the Madam and asked,
"Can you tell me what a Mulligan is?"
A husband and wife were playing on the ninth green when she collapsed from a heart attack.
"Please dear, I need help." she said.
The husband ran off saying, "I'll go get some help."
A little while later he returned, picked up his putter and began to line up his shot.
His wife, on the ground, raised up her head and said, "I may be dying and you're putting?"
"Don't worry dear. I found a doctor on the second hole who said he'd come and help you."
"The second hole? When is he coming?"
"Hey! I told you not to worry." he said, stroking his putt.
"Everyone has already agreed to let him play through."
James was playing a round of golf with the club pro one day and after 18 holes they went into the clubhouse.
James asked the pro: "What do you think of my game?"
The pro replied: "You should shorten your clubs by 1 inch."
James asked if the pro thought this would help his game.
To which the pro said, " No! It will help them fit in the trash can!"
Bob was trying desperately to get in 18 on a soon-to-be stormy day.
He was playing the round of his life, but as the weather grew worse, his swing on the 15th tee was awkward, resulting in a hooked drive into the trees.
His lie was a good one, but right next to a tree. He quickly approached his ball, set himself up, and right as he took the club to the top, lighting struck down from the sky catching his steel shafted 5 iron.
His friends hurried over to see that there was a large crater in the ground and no site of Bob or his clubs - He was gone.
When he reached the pearly gates, St. Peter said, "Son, we are sorry to have taken you at such an early age, however, because you love the game so much, and you had the round of your life going, we decided to bring your clubs that you love so dearly so that you may play all the courses of heaven which are more incredible than any course you have ever played."
The man started crying instantly, to which St. Peter replied, "I know, you have left behind many loved ones."
Bob said, "No, that's not it."
"Yes, my son, you also had an unbelievable life and a great career," St. Peter said.
"No, that's not it either," sobbed Bob.
St. Peter was stumped, "Well then, what could make you so unhappy, that you would cry like a three-year-old girl?"
Bob looked up as the tears flooded from his eyes and said, "I think I left my wedge back on the 14th green."
Two Mexican detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez.
"How was he killed?", asked the first detective.
"He was shot with a golf gun," replied the other.
"A golf gun? What's a golf gun?"
"I don't know, but it sure made a hole in Juan."
If I Died?
Husband and wife are lying quietly in bed reading when the wife looks over at him and asks a question.
Wife: “Would you get married again if I died?”
Husband: (being very careful here) “Definitely not! My Dear”
Wife: “Why not? Don't you like being married?”
Husband: “Of course I do!!”
Wife: “Then why wouldn't you remarry?”

Husband: (makes an audible groan)
Wife: “Would you live in our house?”
Husband: “Sure! - It's a great house.”
Wife: “Would you sleep with her in OUR bed?”
Husband: “Where else would we sleep Dear?”
Wife: “Would you let her drive my car?”
Husband: “Probably!! – It’s almost new!!”
Wife: “Would you replace my pictures with hers?”
Husband: “That would seem like the proper thing to do.”
Wife: “Would you give her my jewelry?”
Husband: “No Dear!! - I'm sure she'd want her own.”
Wife: “Would you take her golfing with you?”
Husband: “Yes!! - Those are always good times.”
Wife: “Would she use my clubs?”
Husband: “'Ohh No!! - She's left-handed!!”
Wife: - silence . . . . . . .
Husband: “ . . . Oh Shit!!”
Among the more interesting rules at Willie Nelson personal Golf Club in Austin, Texas is that no more than 12 people are allowed in each foursome. And there is no such thing as a lost ball, because sooner or later someone is going to find it.
There are several men in the locker room of a private club after finishing 18 holes. Suddenly, a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
"Hello?" "Honey, It's me."
"Are you at the club?"
"Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"
"What's the price?"
"Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..."
"Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001 at a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."
"What price did he quote you?"
"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
"Great! before we hang up, something else..."
"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and . . . I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year ... it's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, tennis court, acre of park area, beach front property..."
"How much are they asking?"
"Only $1,450,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..."
"Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $1,400,000. OK?"
"OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"
"Bye... I do too..."
The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present:
"Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
A golfer set up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees.
He found his ball and saw an opening between two trees he thought he could hit through. He took another mighty swing with his 3-wood and the ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him on the forehead and killed him.
As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter saw him coming and asked, "Are you a good golfer?"
And he replied, "Got here in two, didn't I?"
Dave and his buddies were hanging out and got to talking about planning a 5-day golf trip.
Unfortunately, he had to tell them that he couldn't go because his wife wouldn't let him.
After a lot of teasing and name calling, Dave headed home totally frustrated.
The following week when Dave's buddies arrived at the golf resort, they were shocked to see Dave sitting in the lobby, drinking a beer, holding his putter!
"How did you talk your wife into letting you go, Dave?"
"I didn't have to," Dave replied. "Last night I slumped down in my chair with a beer to drown my sorrows. Then, my wife sneaked up behind me, covered my eyes and said, 'Surprise.' When I peeled her hands back, she was standing there in a beautiful see-through negligee and said, 'Carry me into the bedroom and tie me to the bed, and you can do whatever you want'
. . . . SO HERE I AM!"
Lady Luck was seldom kind to Sam. Although Sam had a real zest for life he was constantly beset by bad luck.
He loved poker but poker did not love him; he played the stock market with great anticipation but always seemed to be the one who bought high and sold low.
His life seemed to be full of more downs than ups.
His greatest delight was his golf game. Not that Sam was a great golfer; in fact, he never managed to break 100, but the odd shot that somehow ended up in the general area he had in mind was enough to keep his hopes alive.
Finally, Sam became ill and passed away. But just before he died, he asked that his remains be cremated and his ashes be scattered just off the fairway on the ninth hole of his home course.
Accordingly, a gathering assembled to carry out Sam's wishes. It was a bright sunny day and was going well. Then, as the ashes were being strewn .... a gust of wind came up and ... blew Sam out of bounds.
McDermott and McDuff were sitting in the clubhouse on a raw, blustery day, thawing their beards in front of the fireplace while freezing rain beat against the windows.
The pair were silent for a long time over their whiskeys.
Finally, McDermott spoke, "That was quite a round of golf."
"Aye," McDuff replied. "Same time next Saturday?"
"Aye," said McDuff, "weather permitting."
The Bus Schedule
At a municipal golf course, a foursome approached the tee of the 430-yard, par-4 sixth hole. The long, straight fairway ran along a road that was fenced on the right.
The green was slightly to the left of the straightaway with another road paralleling the green from which golfers often received heckler calls.
The first golfer teed off with a long ball slice in the direction of the road. The ball went over the fence, bounced 150 yards down the road, where it hit the tire of a moving city bus and was knocked back on to the golf course stopping just 10 yards short of the green.
As they all stood in amazement, a fellow golfer asked, "How on earth did you do that?"
The response came without hesitation, "You have to know the bus schedule.”
What Golf Means
Carl and Dave were getting ready to tee off on the first hole when Dave noticed that Carl got a new set of clubs.
Dave asked Carl how he liked the clubs and if they've helped his game at all.
Carl replied, "Oh yeah, they're great clubs! They've added at least 25 yards to my slices, about 30 yards to my hooks and you would be amazed at the size of my divots!"
From The Farm
A man staggered into a hospital with a concussion, multiple bruises, two black eyes, and a 5-iron wrapped tightly around his throat.
Naturally the doctor asked him, “What happened to you?”
“Well, I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a cow pasture. We went to look for them and while I was looking around, I noticed one of the cows had something white at its rear end.”
“I walked over, lifted its tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it - stuck right in the middle of the Cow's' butt.”
“Still holding the cow's tail up, I yelled to my wife, 'Hey Honey, this looks like yours!'”
“I don't remember much after that......”
What To Do
Earl addressed the ball and took a magnificent swing but somehow, something went wrong and a horrible slice resulted.
The ball went onto the adjoining fairway and hit a man full force and he dropped! Earl and his partner ran up to the stricken victim who lay unconscious with the ball between his feet.
"Good heavens" exclaimed Earl, "what shall I do?"
"Don't move him" said his partner, "if we leave him here, he becomes an immovable obstruction and you can either play the ball as it lies or take a two-club length drop."
The Fortune Teller
On a recent trip to the Fortune Teller, the Golfer asks: "Are there golf courses in Heaven?"
The fortune teller replies: "I have good news, and I have bad news..."
Golfer: "So what's the good news?"
Fortune Teller: "The good news is that Heaven's golf courses are beautiful beyond anything you could imagine!"
Golfer: "How could there be any bad news with that?"
Fortune Teller: "You have a tee-time at 8:30 tomorrow morning."
~ You know you’re a GOLFaholic if . . .
A recent study had some interesting conclusions on the weight of golfers in a particular summer industrial golf league.
This study indicated that the single golfers who play in these leagues are 'skinnier' than the married ones.
The study's explanation for this result was interesting. It seems that the single golfer goes out and plays his round of golf, has a 'refreshment' at the 19th hole, goes home and goes to his refrigerator, finds nothing decent there and goes to bed.
The married golfer goes out and plays his round of golf, has a 'refreshment' at the 19th hole, goes home and goes to bed, finds nothing decent there, so he goes to his refrigerator.
A woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is published. The obit editor informs her that there is a charge of 50 cents per word.
She pauses, reflects, and then says, “Well then, let it read ‘Fred Brown died.’"
Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there is a seven-word minimum for all obituaries.
She thinks it over and, in a few seconds, says, "In that case, let it read, ‘Fred Brown died: golf clubs for sale.’"
Golf is also a game of math.
This formula will help your game, D=nxP2.
This formula illustrates that the odds of hitting a “duffed” shot increase by the square of the number of people watching.
Hit & Pray
A young man and a priest are playing together.
At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are you going to use on this hole my son?"
The young man says, "An 8-iron, Father. How about you?"
The priest says, "I'm going to hit a soft seven and pray."
The young man hits his 8-iron and puts the ball on the green. The priest tops his 7-iron and dribbles the ball out a few yards.
The young man says, "I don't know about you Father, but in my church when we pray, we keep our head down."
The Golf Genie
This guy has just completed a rough divorce and decided he would like to play a relaxing round of golf.
While waiting on the first tee, he saw the two-some in front of him throw something shiny in the trash. After they got halfway down the fairway, the guy reached into the trash and pulled out a golden bowl. He rubbed it to get the dirt off and a genie popped out. The genie told the guy that he would grant him 3 wishes, under the circumstances that his ex-wife would get double what he wished for.
The guy said he wanted a Lamborghini. The genie reassured him that his ex-wife would get two of them. The guy had no hesitation and said he didn’t care if his ex had two, as long as he had one for himself. Poof! The genie said there was a Lamborghini in his driveway.
The man’s next wish was $1 million in the back of his Lamborghini. The genie reassured him that his wife would have $2 million. The guy didn’t care and told the genie to fulfill his wish.
For the guy’s final wish, he thought long and hard. He handed the genie his 6-iron and said calmly, “beat me half to death.”
Take It with You
One day a golfer brought his regular golfing buddies together, and gave them each $50,000 cash and instructed them that upon his death, they were to throw it into the coffin, because he wanted to take it with him.
As luck would have it, he died soon after and when the funeral was over, his buddies met.
The doctor in the group said "I have a confession to make. I put in an empty envelope and I used the money to buy equipment for the free clinic."
The priest said "Me too, only I used the money to help build the youth center."
Somewhat shocked, the last member of the group, a lawyer, said
"I can't believe you guys went back on your word."
They asked him if he actually put the $50,000 in the coffin.
He replied "I most certainly did . . . with my very own personal check."
Mac is having serious trouble putting on the back nine, and complains: "I've got a case of the yips. I just can't putt anymore. I've lost my touch.
It must be my nerves or maybe it's old age"
Jimmy, sarcastically replies, "Or maybe it's that six-pack you drank on the front nine".
Secrets of Great Golf
A reporter was interviewing Jack Nicklaus.
He said, "Jack, you are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What is your secret?"
To which Jack replied, "The holes are numbered!"
A man is getting married, and is standing by his bride at the church.
Standing by him is his golf clubs and bag.
His bride whispers: "What are your golf clubs doing here?"
And the man said "This is not going to take all day is it?"
Don’t Mess with God
Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf. So, he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.
As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish.
Setting up on the first tee, he was all alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!
At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?"
The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."
Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE!
St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"
The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he gonna to tell?"
Mac was an avid golfer his entire life.
As he got into his sixties, his eyes started to fail him. He didn't want to give the game up, so he went to see the family eye doctor.
The doctor said there wasn't much he could do, but he knew of a 97-year-old man who still had perfect sight, could see like an eagle.
The doctor gave Mac the old man's name and suggested that he could use him to watch where he hit his golf ball.
Mac, of course, didn't believe the doctor. The old guy was almost a century old, but could see like an eagle!
Well Mac made arrangements to bring Wilbur golfing.
On the first tee, Mac drove his ball about 200 yards, but of course, he couldn't see where it went.
He asks Wilbur, "Did you see my shot?"
To which Wilbur replied, "Sure did."
Mac asked, "Where did it go? "
Wilbur replied, "I forget!"
A golfer hit his ball into a ravine.
His buddies heard `whack, whack, whack' on and on, until finally he got the ball out.
His buddy asked, "How many strokes did it take you to get out of there?" He said, "three", but his buddy said, "I heard seven."
His reply was, "Four of them were echoes."
Age & Experience
A father, son, and grandson went to the country club for their weekly round of golf.
Just as they reached the first tee, a beautiful young blonde woman carrying her bag of clubs approached them. She explained that the member who brought her to the club for a round of golf had an emergency that called him away and asked the trio whether she can join them.
Naturally, the guys all agreed.
Smiling, the blonde thanked them and said, “Look, fellows, I work in a topless bar as a dancer, so nothing shocks me anymore. If any of you wants to smoke cigars, have a beer, bet, swear, or tell off-color stories or do anything that you normally do when playing a round together, go ahead. But I enjoy playing golf, consider myself pretty good at it, so don’t try to coach me on how to play my shots.”
With that the guys agreed to relax and invited her to drive first. All eyes were fastened on her shapely behind as she bent to place her ball on the tee. She then took her driver and hit the ball 270 yards down the middle, right in front of the green.
The father’s mouth was agape. “That was beautiful,” he said.
The blonde put her driver away and said, “I really didn’t get into it and I faded it a little.”
After the three guys hit their drives and their second shots, the blonde took out a nine iron and lofted the ball within five feet of the hole. (She was closest to the pin.)
The son said, “Damn, lady, you played that perfectly.”
The blonde frowned and said, “It was a little weak. I left a tricky little putt.” Then she tapped in the five-footer for a birdie.
Having the honors, she drove first on the second hole and knocked the hell but of the ball, and it landed nearly 300 yards away smack in the middle of the fairway. For the rest of the round the statuesque blonde continued to amaze the guys, quietly and methodically shooting for par or less on every hole.
When they arrived at the 18th green, the blonde was three under par, and had a very nasty 12-foot putt on an undulating green for a par.
She turned to the three guys and said, “I really want to thank you all for not acting like a bunch of chauvinists and telling me what club to use or how to play a shot, but I need this putt for a 69 and I’d really like to break 70 on this course. If any one of you can tell me how to make par on this hole, I’ll take him back to my apartment, pour some 25-year-old Royal Salute Scotch in him, fix him dinner and then show him a good time the rest of the night.”
The yuppie grandson jumped at the thought. He strolled across the green, carefully eying the line of the putt and finally said, “Honey, aim about 6 inches to the right of the hole and hit it firm. It will get over that little hump and break right into the cup.”
The father knelt down and sighted the putt using his putter as a plumb. “Don’t listen to the kid, darlin’, you want to hit it softly 10 inches to the right and run it left down that little hogback, so it falls into the cup.”
The old gray-haired grandfather walked over to the blonde’s ball, picked it up and handed it to her and said, “That’s a gimme, Sweetheart. Your car or mine?”
Better Than Sex
The devil was holding a meeting with all the little demons.
He stood up and said, "Well, you poor useless lot of sissies, there is too much good in the world. You are all time wasters and you make me sick., You came to hell to help make man's life a misery. Instead you waste your time playing silly games. So, what are you going to do about it?"
Well, just then a small devil quite new to the job and very timid, sheepishly said, "O' Lord of great darkness. I know I'm not as powerful as you but may I make a suggestion? It seems to me if we could build them up and knock them down, the pain would be so great that we will soon gain control."
Just as he said that a more experienced demon said, "You mean golf?"
The devil himself interrupts saying, "Steady on old man, we don't want to finish them off that quick."
A couple of elderly gents were golfing when one said he was going to Dr. Taylor for a new set of dentures in the morning.
His friend remarked that he had gone to the same dentist a few years before.
"Is that so?" the first said. "Did he do a good job?"
"Well, I was playing yesterday when the fellow on the ninth hole hooked a shot," he said.
"The ball must have been going 200 mph when it hit me in the groin.... and that was the first time in two years my teeth haven't hurt."
In The Rough
Mac and Jimmy are playing a challenging new course and as usual Mac is having a tough time off the tee.
On the 6th hole he hits a huge banana ball.
"Did you see where that drive went...is it in the rough?" he asks.
"Sort of " says Jimmy.
"How far in?" asks Mac.
"I'm not sure, but I hope our cart has 4-wheel drive"
To The Golfer
In my hand I hold a ball,
White and dimpled, rather small
Oh, how bland it does appear,
This harmless looking little sphere.
By its size I could not guess
The awesome strength it does possess;
But since I fell beneath its spell
I've wandered through the fires of Hell.
My life has not been quite the same
Since I chose to play this game.
It rules my mind for hours on end.
A fortune it has made me spend.
It has made me curse and cry.
I hate myself and want to die.
It promises a thing called "par".
If I can hit it straight and far.
To master such a tiny ball
Should not be very hard at all.
But my desires the ball refuses
And does exactly as it chooses.
It hooks and slices . . . dribbles . . . dies
Or disappears before my eyes
Often it will have a whim
To hit a tree or take a swim.
With miles of grass on which to land
It finds a tiny patch of sand.
Then has me offering up my soul
If it will just drop in the hole.
It's made me whimper like a pup,
And swear that I will give it up
And take a drink to ease my sorrow.
But "The Ball" knows . . . I'll be back tomorrow.
Out of My Mind
"Mildred, shut up" cried the golfer at his nagging wife.
"Shut up or you'll drive me out of my mind."
"That," snapped Mildred, "wouldn't be a drive.... that would be a gimme putt."
This 85-year-old couple, having been married almost 60 years, die tragically in a car crash. They have been in good health the last ten years, mainly due to the wife's nearly neurotic interest in health food.
When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and master bath suite, complete with Jacuzzi. As they "oohed and aahed' the old man asked St. Peter how much all this was going to cost.
"It's free," St. Peter replied, "Remember, this is Heaven."
Next, they went out back to see the championship golf course the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course changed to a new one representing the great golf courses on Earth. The old man asked, "What are the green fees?"
"This is Heaven," St. Peter replied. "You play for free."
Next, they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisines of the world laid out. "How much to eat?" asked the old man.
"Don't you understand yet?" St. Peter asked. "This is Heaven. It's free!"
"Well, where are the low-fat and low-cholesterol foods?" the old man asked timidly.
"That's the best part ... you can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and never get fat and you never get sick. This is Heaven."
The old man looked at his wife and said, "You and your #@!%&~ bran muffins. I could have been here ten years ago!"
Truth is Hard to Hear
A Golfer has been slicing off the tee on every hole.
He asks his Irish caddy if he has noticed any obvious reasons for his poor tee shots, to which the caddy replies:
"Aye, there's a piece of shit on the end of your driver. "
The Golfer picks up his driver and cleans the club face, at which point the caddy says: "No, the other end.
A duffer hits a wicked slice off the tee that ricocheted through the trees and onto the next fairway, narrowly missing another golfer.
When he got to his ball, he was greeted by the unintentional target, who angrily told him of the near miss.
"I'm very sorry" the errant golfer said, "I didn't have time to holler fore".
"That's funny" the man replied," you had plenty of time to holler SHIT".
A fellow is getting ready to tee-off on the first hole when a second fellow approaches and asks if he can join him.
The first says that he usually plays alone but agrees to let the second guy join him. Both are even after the first couple of holes.
The second guy says "Say, we're about evenly matched, how about we play for five bucks a hole?"
The first fellow says that he usually plays alone and doesn't like to bet, but agrees to the terms.
Well, the second guy wins the rest of the holes and as they're walking off of the eighteenth hole, and while counting his $80.00, he confesses that he's the pro at a neighboring course and likes to pick on suckers.
The first fellow reveals that he's the Parish Priest at the local Catholic Church to which the second fellow gets all flustered and apologetic and offers to give the Priest back his money.
The Priest says, "No, no. You won fair and square and I was foolish enough to bet with you. You keep your winnings."
The pro says, "Well, is there anything I can do to make it up to you?"
The Priest says, "Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation. Then, if you bring your mother and father by after Mass, I'll marry them for you."
In his prime, Seve Ballesteros was a very aggressive player knowing that he could take uncanny risks because of his incredible short game.
He was a phenomenal putter.
One time when asked by a writer to translate "lag putt" into Spanish, he thought for several moments then asked,
"What is a lag putt?"
There was this guy who went golfing every Saturday and Sunday, it didn't matter what kind of weather - He was hooked
One Saturday he left the house early and headed for the golf course, but it was so bitter cold that he decided he wouldn't golf that day and went back home.
His wife was still in bed when he got there, so he took off his clothes and snuggled up to his wife and said "Terrible weather out there."
She replied, "Yeah, and can you believe my stupid husband went golfing."
The Montana State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising golfers to take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while playing National Forests golf courses.
They advise golfers to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on their clothing to alert, but not startle the bears unexpectedly. They also advise you to carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear.
It is also a good idea to watch for signs of bear activity.
Golfers should be able to recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear droppings on the golf course.
Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berries and possibly squirrel fur. Grizzly bear droppings have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray.
The forty-something business executive - and an avid golfer, was browsing the personal ads on the internet when he came across an interesting ad from an attractive lady living in the same town as him.
The ad read as follows - Slim, attractive, buxom blonde, 5'6" 125 lbs. successful in business, happy in life, no children (or desire to have them), enjoys traveling, pampering her man and the finer things in life. Seeks similar qualities in a partner for long term relationship.
* GOLFERS NEED NOT APPLY *
Two couples went out golfing together.
The men hit first from the men's tee and walked with the ladies to their tee box.
The first lady took a mighty swing at the ball, missing it completely, while passing some gas rather loudly in the process.
No one commented.
She addressed the ball again but this time she passed just a little gas as she made contact with the ball, topping it and moving it only a short distance. She said,
"I wonder why it didn't go any further?"
One of the men said, "I don't think you gave it enough gas!"
Joe and his priest are playing in a golf match.
Joe's game is perfect that day, and he is giving the priest a thorough drubbing.
The priest can only sigh as he fills in the scorecard from the last hole. Sensing his pastor's unhappiness, Joe says to him,
"Cheer up Father - just think, one of these days you will be giving the services at my funeral."
The Priest looked at him and made a poor attempt at a grin while saying, "Yes, that may be true, but it will still be your hole."
A recent study found the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.
Kind of makes you proud - Almost feels like a hybrid.
A man comes home after a terrible round of golf, his worst ever.
He plops down on the couch in front of the television, and tells his wife, "Get me a beer before it starts."
The wife sighs and gets him a beer. Fifteen minutes later, he says, "Get me another beer before it starts." She looks cross, but fetches another beer and slams it down next to him.
He finishes that beer and a few minutes later says, "Quick, get me another beer, it's going to start any minute."
The wife is furious. She yells at him "You've been out golfing all day!
Is that all you're going to do tonight? Drink beer and sit in front of that TV? You're nothing but a lazy, drunken, fat slob, and furthermore . . ."
The man sighs and says, ". . . And now it's started!"
What's In A Lie...
Bob, a 70-year-old, extremely wealthy widower, shows up at the country club with a breathtakingly beautiful and very sexy 25-year-old blonde.
She hangs onto Bob's arm and listens intently to his every word.
His buddies at the club are all aghast.
At the very first chance, they corner him and ask, "Bob, how did you get the trophy girlfriend?"
Bob replies, "Girlfriend? She's my wife!"
They're amazed, but continue to ask, "So, how did you persuade her to marry you?"
"I lied about my age", Bob replies.
"What, did you tell her you were only 50?"
Bob smiles and says, "No, I told her I was 90."
A husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage.
The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a rage, listing every problem they had in the last 15 years they've been married, and she goes on and on and on.
Finally, the counselor gets up, goes around the desk, embraces the woman, and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says "That is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week, can you do that "?
The husband says "No! But I can bring her in on Monday's and Friday's, but on Wednesday's, I play golf!
Do you know that...
When a woman wears a leather dress, A man's heart beats quicker, His throat gets dry and he goes weak in the knees, and he begins to think irrationally.
Ever wonder why?
It's because she smells like a new golf glove.
A foursome of hackers teed off at 10 am every Saturday and all were usually there well before tee time. This Saturday Dave rushed to the tee just in time, as the other three had already teed off.
Dave apologized and explained that he had stopped at the Optometrist office on the way to the course to pick up his new bifocals.
Dave put on his new glasses, teed up his ball and after turning his head this way and that proceeded to hit the best drive of his life. Dave's approach shot to the green was even better than his drive - leaving him a birdie putt which he drilled into the middle of the cup.
Dave continued to play the best golf of his life, he broke 80 for the first time and won every bet.
Of course, the foursome retired to the clubhouse after the round to celebrate and allow Dave to buy drinks. After the first round his buddies began to press him to explain his new golf skills.
Dave said "Guys its these new bifocals - when I put them on and looked over the top I saw a little ball and a little club - when I looked through the bottom I saw a big ball and a big club - but if I looked just right I could see a little ball and a big club. So, I hit the little ball with the big club all day.
When I putted it was even better, I hit the little ball into the big hole with the big putter." Well, everyone thought this was exceptional and required several more drinks.
After a while Dave excused himself to visit the Men's room. However, when he failed to return after a considerable absence one friend went to check on him.
He found Dave at the urinal with the front of his trousers soaking wet. "What happened?" His friend inquired.
An obviously tipsy Dave replied "I don't know. I was standing here taking a leak and I looked down and saw two - one big one and one little one. Well, I didn't recognize the big one so I put it back in my pants!"
At dawn the telephone rings.
"Hello, Senor Lucky? This is Ernesto the caretaker at your country house."
"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"
"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor, that your parrot died"
"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"
"Si, Senor, that's the one."
"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a fortune on that bird.
"What did he die from?"
"From eating rotten meat, Senor"
"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"
"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse."
"Dead horse? What dead horse?"
"The thoroughbred, Senor Lucky. He died from all that work pulling the water cart."
"Are you insane? What water cart?"
"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor"
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire."
"What the . . .??? But there's electricity at the house!!! What was the candle for?"
"For the funeral, Senor."
"WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?"
"Your wife's, Senor...she showed up one night out of the blue and I thought she was a thief. So, I hit her with your new Tiger Woods Nike Driver."
"Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you're in deep shit!"
Golfer: "I've played so poorly all day; I think I'm going to go drown myself in that lake."
Caddie: "I doubt that. I don't think you could keep your head down that long."
Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to be able to break 100 "
Caddie: "Try heaven," advised the caddie. "You've already moved most of the earth."
Golfer: "This is the worst golf course I've ever played on!"
Caddie: "This isn't the golf course, sir! We left that a half hour ago!"
Golfer: "Well, Caddy, How do you like my game?"
Caddie: "Very good, Sir! But personally, I prefer Golf."
Golfer: "Well, I have never played this badly before!
Caddie: "I didn't realize you had played before, Sir."
Golfer: "Caddy, Do you think my game is improving?"
Caddie: "Oh yes, Sir! You miss the ball much closer than you used to."
Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time It's distracting!"
Caddie: "This isn't a watch, Sir. It's a compass!"
Golfer: "Caddy, do you think it is a sin to play golf on Sunday?"
Caddie: "The way you play, Sir, it’s a crime any day of the week!"
Golfer: "This golf is a funny game."
Caddie: "It's not supposed to be."
Judge: "Do you truly understand the seriousness of things when you swear and state an oath?"
Boy: "Do I ever, your honor! I once caddied for you!"
Golfer: "That can't be my ball, caddie. It looks far too old."
Caddie: "It still could be Sir; it's been a long time since we started!"
Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5-iron?"
Golfer: "You've got to be the worst caddy in the world!" he screamed."
Caddie: "I doubt it. That would be too much of a coincidence"
Golfer: "Well, I've never played this badly before"
Caddie: "I didn't realize that you had played before, sir"
Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time. It is annoying."
Caddie: "This isn't a watch, sir. It is a compass."
Here's a slice of golf history you might enjoy.
Why do full-length golf courses have 18 holes, and not 20, 10 or an even dozen?
During a discussion among the membership board at St. Andrews Golf Club in 1858, one of the members pointed out that it takes exactly 18 holes to polish off a fifth of Scotch.
By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out . . .
