GOLFING 101: 6 Simple Rules

Now I know there are a lot of people who are wanting new hobbies so why not think about picking up golf. Here are a few tips.......

Rule #1: YOU NEED COOL GLASSES

Well after cleaning out my car I realized I had a few sunglasses that are all pretty much ridiculous looking that I have purchased on road trips. So why not wear them all on this perfect day for golf?

Rule #2: CLEAN THE GOLF BALLS

We got to the course around 3:30pm meaning we had about an hour and a half or so til we lost the sun to actually see what we were doing...hahah...but that makes it more fun right? We had to wash all the golf balls since we are pros and all. I think we could have mud all over one half of the ball and we would still be terrible. We like to change the par(normal amount of strokes) on each hole to 2 strokes more than what they suggest just so that we seem a little better.

Rule #3: WEAR FUNNY LOOKING CLOTHES

Look at that beautiful swing about to take place. The hole wasnt that far away and you would think I would hit it straight toward the hole but lets just say my ball flew to the right and landed no where near the green. The goofy hat I am wearing is the trophy from this course I won last time we were there (Craig Ranch...aka Ghetto Cheap Course). We buy something from each course we play and whoever wins gets that trophy and has to add it to their bag.

Rule #4: CLEAN YOUR SHOES TO KEEP GOOD BALANCE

I thought maybe cleaning on the bottom of my shoes would help a little......cause I am awesome like that. Ok I just thought it was funny because nothing we do makes a difference. Rule #5: BE A FRIENDLY DRIVER IN YOUR CART

We only had 2 carts in between 3 people so we had a few battles trying to figure out who should drive as you can tell and I think thats why the picture is lopsided.

Rule #6: BE A GANGSTA

Matt and I in our hats or our trophys from different courses. Matts was from Durango Hills where he won last time and mine was from Craig Ranch where I won last time. It sucks that I did terrible and lost my hat and had to give it up to Matt. Oh well....there is always next time.

Now next time you think about going golfing you might think twice about what you are doing and use these 6 important rules. Let me know how they work for ya!! Until next time!

I love blogging. It's like crack, but better because it doesn't affect your skin or social status.

Welcome to the addiction.
