Of course there is the golf joke about the guy who played a round with his buddies shouting and laughing. After the round as they headed to the parking lot, he told them at the end to not talk to him. When asked why, he said he’s told his wife he’s been deaf for 5 years and he didn’t want to spoil it.
An Actual Sign At a Golf Club In Scotland
The snow is finally gone (it did snow last week) and the local course opened, so I made my way out to the course. I had no one to make up a four or even a twosome, so I picked at time and figured I’d get stuck with someone.
Well, the tourists aren’t hear yet. The snow has melted and the skiers are gone. It turns out that it was supposed to rain that day so when I got to the course, the parking lot was empty. I knew my luck couldn’t hold so I went to the range and hit a bucket to warm up and then went to putt on the practice green. It is next to the first tee, so I knew that I could keep an eye on the traffic to get out with as few people in my group as possible.
As it turns out, no one showed up. Even the starter wasn’t there. I took the opportunity to jump on the tee and try for a solo round. Life was on my side and there weren’t golfers for many holes either side of me.
I played 18 hassle free and small talk free golf. I would have paid extra money for this freebie in life.
I’ll be out again this week and I’ll get paired up with someone the rest of the year, but it was a good start.
Looks like I’m starting out the year with a double digit handicap. Playing golf is my other handicap.
Why You Should Enjoy Life

More Fall Pictures, Leaves Are Turning Colors
This is last week near the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This is yesterday, same golf course and same direction, but one hole apart. Notice the color change….I was +8 for the day BTW.
The Upcoming Water Shortage, Ways To Find It
And don’t forget to mention to your foursome that there is a water hazard on the hole. One of them is bound to find it. They’ll do the rest.
The Connection Between Golf And Outer Space
I’m not fazed by water. Instead, I use it to my advantage.
I’ll get a brand new ball out to hit over the water and I try to hit first. Once safely over the water hazard I tell the other players not to worry about the water. Inevitably, one of them will hit it in and be pissed at me the rest of the day. I make sure to laugh at them on purpose.
These are the head games of golf. There are many. This one is just a fun one that will put you in the head of the player who hit the water, especially on the next water hole.
Enjoy the next time you do this. Hopefully it is early in the round so you can enjoy the day.

The Best Caddyshack Quotes
I’m starting to play golf with my son. I couldn’t help but think back on one of the best Golf and/or Comedy movies ever. The lines were hilarious and it was the breakout movie for Rodney. We shared the laughter by watching it together.
Best of all, it was filmed mostly at Rolling Hills Country Club in Pembroke Pines Florida, a course I played weekly when I lived there.
Here are the best of clips, enjoy.
