Lets see if i can keep this at least PG-13 :ninja:

 

Driver- "oh god" because I cant hit it very well

3W,4H- "Hot heads" because the head socks never come off

3i- "occasionally" because I occasionally use it well

5i- "neverland" because I sky the ball everytime

6i- "Sweet Jesus" because it saves me most of the time

7i- "ouch" because I hit my ball into my face off of a tree in my first full 18 round

8i- "shovel" because I typically leave pretty big divots with it

9i- "the mistress" because I cheat on my wedges with it

PW- "topical" because I top the ball alot

SW- Dubbed "get wet" by a friend after I used it to chip out of water and into the hole for a bogey in my best round ever

Putter- "get lucky" because I need all the luck I can get on the green.

Only ever gave a name to one club. It was an experimental oversize Persimmon I had made. Named it "Concorde" (as in "Monty Python and The Holy Grail", NOT the plane). Sadly my Concorde DID die in vain... After a few months the head cracked at the hosel and could not be repaired.

Some actual comments are not suitable for the board.

putter—Rife 2-bar:  “Frankenputter”.  For obvious reasons (See above, LINK)

52 gap wedge: “Volkey2”.  Before I bought my first Vokey (Volkey1) I thought they were called VoLkeys.  lol 

25 hybrid: “partner”—Like my former partner, I think he’s going to be straight with me beforehand.  But turns out to be crooked quite often. 

Driver:  “Sweetie”.  When I treat her right (hit the sweet spot with a square stroke) she rewards me.

For trouble, my brother always pulled out the "McGinty", an early wood hybrid club.

I name a lot of things but not clubs so far.  Levity is important. Driver-Big Dog, Lwedge, Archie,  Huey Dewey and Louie

I think you're 9I should actually be called Bueller then, no?

but it was Rooney who said, "Nine times"

So does your nine iron talk? Or was your nine iron the one that was actually absent? :P

my 9i speaks to me all the time. usually goes something like, "Would you PLEASE keep my sole somewhere near the Earth's crust, and not closer to the inner core?"
