One of those two might take a bit longer......

.....the golf course could be backed up.

True. I guess you could knock sex down to 15 seconds...

You are a non golfer if the butt of your putt extends past your belt line....

You are a non golfer if you don't seethe with anger after duffing any shot...

You are making a real ass of yourself lately. You are a non-golfer if you can not treat fellow golfers with the respect due to them, regardless of their score or the CR of the course on which they sh

Not me! A golf ball with a demonstrated affinity for the water has a horrible character flaw that cannot be changed.  It should never be trusted again!

I made a 12 on a par-3 once......with NO PENALTY STROKES!

What on earth, in ur mind,  is wrong with a ball retriever?  Man, i can collect a dozen beauties from the pond, if i have time.  Usually the Marshall is pushing too hard to keep moving to permit  me to go fishing.

Well, i totally DISAGREE with U.

And i always carry a big UMBRELLA. That 'wrong' too?

I'm sorry to say . .but yes, the big umbrella puts you further in the wrong.  If you use it to keep the sun off you . . .that's at least 3 times as bad.

You are not a real golfer if you have to share my umbrella when it rains!

Yup, umbrella is part of the bag. The handle serves as a station for head covers when skies are dry, and, shucks, if it's not a great tool in a sudden soaker! Besides, I always use one of the umbrellas I got from my dad when he went to the big course in heaven. :roll:

You are not a real golfer if you yell and scream when you make a birdie/eagle or chip in/hole out from a bunker/fairway.

A high five is OK for something exceptional but no need for anything vocal that players not in your group will hear.

Don't start me on "eagles" on 400 yard par 5s or 240 yard par 4s.

Agreed.

Us high handicappers sometimes need to take the shoes off to count all the strokes. Real golfers, yes. Real bad golfer, yeah.

Don't do it on the green however. I try to do the advanced math on the way to the next tee.

IMO, the thread should have been titled, "You're Not A Golfer if . . . "

He gets a pass, he's old.  Poor circulation.

Still looks like a doof though.

Reported! :bugout::naughty:

....IF you can't multi-quote

Hmm, that allegation belongs to ' you are a non-TSTer if..' thread.

Just kidding. Can and do when I intend to. But I get your point. My bad.

The range is five minutes away and five dollars for fifty balls. There are no courses nearby where you can get a tee  time at the drop of a hat. I will stop pounding 'em at the range when I can consistently drive without slicing and get a consistent solid impact with my irons. I guess when I can do those things, I will be a real golfer.

Also, I am not big on playing alone. I used to like it, but I don't anymore. Another reason I am not a real golfer.

Those are good goals. I spent a lot more time on the range, and now getting on the course is fun. It really used to be a chore getting balls just getting balls to the green. As for playing alone, I am still trying to find a tee time where I can go out without crowds of people, that is, short of going out there at 4:00am. I enjoy the company, but would like to resume some vlogs and swing videos, and just can't seem to get the opportunity.

Winter?   Golf?   The two don't go together in Michigan.   I do play on a simulator during the winter but today the wind chill is about 30 degrees and rain.    Not a day to golf.

They don't really go together well in the uk but I can't just stop playing for 4 months because the weather is awful! I need my fix! I'll not be able to play after work now because daylight is shorter, so I can only play on a Saturday and I can tell you I'll be there every Saturday regardless of weather! Unless it's snowing! Which I actually tried once!

That sounds pretty cool, actually. BTW, I don't use a glove. I have an obscure and really hard to find size, so the glove makers don't think I should golf. ;-)

Well I've given up on umbrellas! They're a bloody nuisance in the wind, so I might waterproof bag, full goretex suit inc hat! (Galvin green, it's awesome) 3 gloves plus a winter pair and I keep the towel dry in the hood of the bag! We just have to accept winter golf in the uk. There's no thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!

That actually sounds fun. Plus, we need the rain in So. Cal.

If all golfers waited to get to that point, we'd have 80% fewer golfers playing the game..... ;-)

You're a non-golfer if you play in shorts and high sport socks...

You're a non-golfer if you ease your lie when no one's looking (cheat)

You're a non-golfer if you're not fuming with anger when someone says "great shot" when the ball lands waaaaaaay off your target/in hazards.

Maybe we could break it down into degrees or class of a golfer [quote name="blackizzz" url="/t/77399/i-am-calling-you-out-as-a-non-golfer-if/200_100#post_1065158"]You're a non-golfer if you play in shorts and high sport socks...

That is true :) But it doesn't really help ;)

Seems like golf is a crappy hobby for "golfers" in your definition

Definitely not, it is however a frustrating one, and I think most people can relate to that. Nothing negative about it, it's a part of the games charm, the ups and downs... If you've never had that experience though...

You sweet-tempered gents will never get it. Some of us wake up angry and go to bed angry. If we weren't getting angry on the golf course, we'd be getting angry somewhere else.
