When your immediate thoughts after receiving the news that you are out of work and penniless are...

How on earth are you going to pay next years membership fees?

Devise a feasible plan that should coax your wife to partake in prostitution to fund your golfing future?

Oh yes, and feel an extreme urge to kick your ex-boss in the titleists.

LMAO!!!

This may not be all that funny, but it actually happened this past Saturday and may belong in this thread. Early Saturday morning, my soon-to-be 10 year old step-daughter and I were the only ones awake. We are eating breakfast together as her cartoons were on TV. When we were done eating, I told her I was leaving. Here's the ensuing conversation: Her: "Are you going golfing?" Me: "Yes, Sweetie, I am. I'll be back in a few hours." Her: "Do you golf in the winter?" Me: "No. It's much too cold." Her: "Good!" It almost made me want to stay home... Almost...

I guess I need help since my golf bag sits next to my chair in the living room along with my shoes and whatever else I can stuff on the shelves on the bag stand. olny time the bag moves is when I'm golfing or cleaning them and I move the stand to the other side of my chair around Christmas time so I can put up a tree:).

you know you're an addict when:

1. your wife kindly points out that golf balls are not ornaments she enjoys looking at, there are other channels on the tv outside of Golf Network, take care of the shopping did not mean go to the range and top up your e-pass.

2. your colleagues ask each other where they went for lunch and how it was, then turn to you and say, "how was the range today?"

3. Your son asked if he could come to the range and try it out, 2 weeks and 5 trips to the range later he has his own set of clubs and is already challenging in the Putting through the house tour series.

4. You realize after a long break from playing and coming back to the sport recently, the years in between were spent in recovery, you never really stopped being an addict!!!!

You question and evaluate every move you make, wondering if it may cause an injury that would hamper your ability to play golf.

Jogging? I may twist an ankle, no thanks.

...you drive an extra three miles to the distant grocery store because it's next to Play It Again Sports.

Every time you explain a life lesson to your kids it starts with... " You know like in golf... " Anytime there is free time during the day you wonder... "Can I make it to the range?" To avoid an argument you lie to your wife and tell her you're at a strip club when you're actually at the driving range.

You know you an addict when even the golf 12 step program wont help you!

When someone mentions a 12 step program, the first thought that enters your mind is, "Which direction?  'Cause that's a whole club either way."

You try and find an open course even though a tropical storm hit this morning and will be continuing to rain for the next couple of days. Also you when you find an open range on the same day even though there is tornado warnings and the threat of flooding.
