18 Reasons Why I Suck At Golf
We all can’t be touring PGA professionals! Most of us will never consistently break 100 without knowingly bending the rules. A bump out of the rough here, an improved lie there, a convenient “Give me a bogey” when you made a 7 and voila – You shot a 96!
How hard can it really be? Think about it – the ball is lying there…NOT moving. Just sitting still on the beautifully manicured grass and we can’t hit it to save our lives. I can understand it in Baseball: trying to make contact with a 90 mph curve ball, which is flipping hard to do – but, hitting a golf ball? Come on…
Many reasons come to mind why we suck at the game we love – and, I apologize, if the “s” word is too strong but I couldn’t think of another word that more appropriately describes my personal lack of accomplishments for my weekend passion.
I only play a few times a year. Bad answer – you have a bathroom with a mirror to practice your swing or did you ever hear about a driving range, Top Golf, Drive Shack and lots of other places you can practice on a regular basis. Bad excuse. Next. .
I’m a lefty – for some reason, all of our golf stores only sell righty clubs and this has proven to be a major disadvantage in conquering the sport. Plus, the course I play on was only designed for right hand players.
Why does the pin move each day to a different part of the green? How can I get good if the hole is being moved on a daily basis.
The 4 some behind me keeps rushing me; please tell them to just chill, enjoy the beautiful day and stop “putting” pressure on us.
Too much water and trees on the course; I don’t believe the adage that a tree is 90% air because for some reason, my golf balls always hit the center of the tree trunk.
My golf bag was purchased on sale and only has a pocket to hold 3 golf balls and 4 tees; once I lose my balls, I’m done with my round.
Greens are too slow – 100% of the putts that didn’t reach the hole don’t go in. As hard as I try to hit the ball to the hole, it doesn’t get there. I can only blame this on my putter and the slow greens.
Bad assortment of liquor on the 19th hole. All I want is a refreshing brewski or vodka with lime (but the bar at my golf course doesn’t have cut up limes) which is beyond frustrating. .
Range finder does the yards only in meters; to save money, I bought my range finder on sale from a website based in a country I never heard of – the only issue is that my range find only shows the distance in meters – and, to make matters worse, I can’t covert meters into yards.
I can’t control my pull cart – my pull cart has a brain of its own. As much as I push it straight, it veers left or right which affects my game.
My glove doesn’t fit – Can someone please explain to me the meaning of the word “cadet”? Why can’t there just S, M, L and XL?
Golf rules make no sense -my friends who tell me they break 80 really shoot 92 if they played by the rules.
I purposely didn’t include a reason for #13 because golfers tells me it’s an unlucky #.
I hate my friends who all say they hit their drives 300 yards. They wish!
My golf balls don’t have the right dimples on them. I need a custom golf ball made just for me; but I stink so I think its best that I use water bowl that can be purchased from the local pawn shop.
My internet is always down. Without wifi, I can’t watch Golf Videos and YouTube Videos how to improve my game.
My significant other is holding me back. I’m trying to get better but “THEY” don’t want me to leave for the whole day on a weekend as we need quality time to build our stronger relationship. GTFO!
I don’t have a 18th reason but I thought I should write something to honor the 18 holes of golf.
