Another one (not original - I think it's stolen from Lee Trevino): "The best balls I hit all day was when I stepped on a rake in the bumper!"

Might have already posted this one... but when you crush a tee shot and your partner does not, as you go toward his ball you say, "Hey, did you know they were putting a new WalMart in here? First timers always take the bait and say, "no way... where?" And you say, "Between your ball and mine." Pretty heartless. When you are only a little bit in front you can say, "hmmm... only a sunglasses Kiosk." Sooner or later it will flip and you will hear all about the new WalGreens or such, to which you say, "Naw, just a Quickie Mart."

Haha - I like those.

When a poor golfer makes an OK shot: "Well, I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while".

When you completely miss the ball: "I caught a FISH - F#@& It's Still Here".

Chipping in or making a long put for 8+: "That's like winning a gold medal at the Special Olympics".

Ones that I have coined, "what a hitter" it is a reference to "Martha Gooch" on the movie "A League of their Own", when ever a terrible looking shot pans out well.

And the "Forest Gump" or "box of chocolates" , nicknames for a club in the bag that gets random results every time I use it.

Playing hockey, is putting more than 3 times

Boomeranged it, a horrible slice

I am sure there is more....

Hmm, what can I add that's new.....

On a big drive .... "That's my Linda Ronstadt shot 'Blew By You!' "

Also on a big drive ... "Did you get lucky this morning?" and the response has to be "Not at our age".

And when your partner kicks your ball back after you get on in six ..."I hate to see a grown man cry".

The Special Olympics must not mean anything to you, but it might to the competitors.

That is a tasteless joke, just sayin'.

When a bad shot turns out ok--worm burner rolls for miles, slice or hook hits something and comes back to the middle, etc.

I sometimes say "Crude- but effective"

I didn't want to go through all 18 pages, so if this has been posted already, my apologies...

Putting whipped cream on a pile of $hit! (making a long or difficult putt or chipping it in after a hack job in getting the ball on the green)

    • I’m a fan of the M2… always be one of TM’s best heads.  BUT. Doea the other Titleist driver’s hosel adapter fit the TS4 and vice versa??  If it does you can use the proforce in both heads etc…. 
    • Yup. Have to agree. Can't give up 40+ on the road and expect to win. Would have like to see OSU take more chances down the field. Hats off to Michigan though they were simply better today. It's Georgia's national championship to lose now IMO, I don't think there's any offense left in the playoff picture that will challenge Georgia's defense.
    • Too much so, yes. The body is responsible for the AROUND. The arms are responsible for the UP.
    • Figured since I have this, I may as well post it.   Even though it’s not a good video. Can’t get back far enough.    driver swing is quite a bit more flat.  Probably too much sway rather than turn.    But, I’m really working on speed, and this summer I averaged 278 off the tee with driver and hit 61% fairways.     So, I just don’t think it’s my biggest concern.  I do want to be longer, though.      
    • Day 119: Worked on backswing cupped wrist feel and also transition priority piece. Decided to get the feel of head position change (I call it Rory-ing) first, before working on clubface. I will be playing 18 tomorrow and will pay attention to ball flight to see how I need to adjust palmar flexion amount. Also did pitching/chipping drills from covid-19 practice plan days 6/7.
