Report Define The Bad Golfer in Golf Talk September 15, 2017 · Edited September 15, 2017 by swffjvl Wow, great thread. I always thought I was a bad golfer, now reading this thread makes me think. I am a, for the most part, a double bogey golfer (+/-), not that I don't try, but dang, I do enjoy it. I don't have allot of time to practice, or play for that matter, so when I do get out I am a happy camper. I try my best, I laugh a lot, nice to other golfers and the course, try to follow the rules and keep up pace of play. So I guess there is a lot more to being a good golfer that I just never thought about.
