Everyone knows he has a bad habit of cheating. But we tolerate it because, generally, he is harmless and he's a "good" guy....except he cheats.
One of his favorite thing to do is to flip the ball over when it's in high grass, as if he is trying to confirm that it's his ball. In doing so he also conveniently gives himself a better lie because he doesn't put the ball back where it was, which is usually deep down in the tall grass.
He also does other common tricks like miraculously finding his ball, when we all know he couldn't have. Or he moves his ball from behind the tree saying he want to hit it from grass instead of dirt.
On this particular day I saw him on the green, as I was about to pitch on. His ball was about 30 ft from the hole. He bends down about at about 20 feet, like he's removing something from his line of putt. But instead he places his ball marker there. Then he walks over to his ball and picks it up. So, he has given himself about 10ft..
So, after the hole, I called him on it. AND, THIS IS WHAT I HATE ABOUT HABITUAL CHEATERS....instead of admiting it and apologizing, HE ACCUSED ME OF BEING PETTY.
So, next time, if he's part of the foursome, I'm out. Especially if there's anything on it....how can you trust a guy like that? I'm usually good about letting things go, but man, too much of it become annoying as hell.
