The silent type - one hardly says a word other than occasional "fore."
That is pretty good!
I am probably the "borrower." I haven't bought a pack of tees in 5 years. They only cost 2 bucks, but for some reason, I can't bring myself to do it! Usually, I find enough tees scattered throughout the course to get me through a round (or I have saved plenty in reserve from the higher end courses that give away tees for free). But every so often - usually around the 14th hole - I'll ask my playing partners if they can "loan" me a tee.
I can confirm that Big C is the borrower. He kept asking to use my 52* wedge.

Yeah they should have the unsolicited advice guy. I got paired with one of those once and it was surprisingly annoying. It would be one thing if it was a tour player but when it's some random old dude telling you shit you already know... I know, let's just call it John Madden Guy.
LOL, it isn't just golf. I played in a charity poker tournament last night for the first time, and after I mentioned that it was my first tournament this old guy must have told me at leas ten times , "the key to this tournament is never go all-in pre-flop." The funny thing is despite his claimed 40 years of playing he was the only one at the table who played out of turn.
Well with that bust line, of course.
I am not a PU guy but I, too, get annoyed when this happens. Then again, I remind myself that at 16 handicap, it wasn't such a bad shot. I just had handicap 5 expectation on that particular shot, that's all.
Yup, you are weird on hole in one crap stuff. If it happened to me, I'd be amused, not mad.
There gotta be a name for your type - one looking of ladies on golf course. How about .... the Flirt?
I'm none of those guys but it was a funny video.
If I was a golf stereotype . .I'd be the "Golf Commentator Guy". For some reason, I have to comment about every shot everybody in my group takes - including my own. "Nice contact!" "Oh - got unlucky there", etc. I also tend to comment a lot about thier lies, how hard or easy thier shot is, etc. God forbid we're playing a course at which I have more experience because then I become "Golf Strategy Advisor Guy" . "long is dead", "anywhere but to the right is good" , etc. Seriously . .I turn into Nick Faldo (the commentator, not the golfer).
I obviously tone this down when playing with strangers or new people but my regular golf buddies get the full dose . .can't help it. It must not annoy them too badly, though, because they keep playing with me, lol.
One of my regular golf buddies is "Forgot To Go Pee Before Teeing Off Guy" - he always has to make a run back to the clubhouse within the first 4-5 holes. This same guy is also "I Need to Eat Or I Will Die Guy" - he whips out snacks every other hole, *has* to stop at the clubhouse for food at the turn, etc. This same guy is also "Annoying Post Shot Routine Guy", lol. Annoying Post Shot Routine Guy looks puzzled after every bad shot, sets up to an imaginary ball, takes some imaginary practice swings and hits an imaginary mulligan. If it was once in a while .. ok . .but if it happens 15 times a round . .how can he be puzzled? It's this puzzled look of disgust that really puts it over the top.
One of the guys in our regular group is "Great Guy to Golf With Guy" . . .he doesn't say too much ..or too little. He usually plays well and never gets mad when he doesn't. He is all business on the course . .no fooling around asking for yardages, no pre or post shot routine to speak of. He doesn't even take practice swings.
The fourth guy is "Only Plays Golf to Get Out of the House Guy". He doesn't know the rules, doesn't spend 1 minute thinking about golf on or off the course, shoots terrible everytime and doesn't care - I am actually surprised everytime he shows up.
Golf is a great game.
I started becoming a little bit of "Agrees You're Bad Guy". If someone (usually a high handicapper, plays infrequently) hits some gnarly hook into the junk and gets all dejected and says "Hooked it..." I'll say something like "Yeah, that was pretty bad!" and then smile and laugh. I think it lightens the mood a little bit and lets people relax and maybe hit better over the course of the round.
