Received in the Mail Today (For the Golfer)

 * Golf balls are like eggs ~ they're white. They're sold by the dozen.... and a week later you have to buy more.

* A pro-shop gets its name from the fact that you have to have the income of a professional golfer to buy anything in there.

* It's amazing how a golfer who never helps out around the house will replace his divots, repair his ball marks, and rake his sand traps.

* When you stop to think about it, did you ever notice that it's a lot easier to get up at 6:00 a.m. to play golf than at 10:00 to mow the yard?

* Golf is by far the ultimate love/hate relationship. Sometimes it seems as though your cup runneth and moveth over.

* It takes longer to learn good golf than it does brain surgery. On the other hand, you seldom get to ride around on a cart, drink beer and eat hot dogs while performing brain surgery.

* A good drive on the 18th hole has stopped many a golfers from giving up the game.

* Water hazards are no walk in the park for fish, turtles, frogs or alligators either.

* Golf is the perfect thing to do on Sunday because you always end up praying a lot.

* A good golf partner is one who's always slightly worse than you.

* That rake by the sand trap is there for golfers who feel guilty about skipping out on lawn work.

* If there's a storm rolling in, you'll be having the game of your life.

* If your opponent has trouble remembering whether he shot a six or a seven, he probably shot an eight.

* You probably wouldn't look good in a Green Jacket anyway! A sweatshirt will do just fine!

* Golf appeals to the child in all of us. This is proven by our frequent inability to count past the number 5.

* It's a simple matter to keep your ball in the fairway if you're not choosy about which fairway.

* If profanity had any influence on the flight of a ball, most everyone would play better.

* The greatest sound in golf is the Whoosh, Whoosh, Whoosh, of your opponent's club as he hurls it across the fairway.

* A recent survey shows that of all jobs, caddies live the longest. They get plenty of fresh air and exercise, and if there's ever a medical emergency, a doctor is always nearby.


  1. Mark Twain (allegedly) summed up golf as a good walk spoiled. I wouldn't argue.
    Two of my sisters in law disagree.

  2. Thanks for the laughs.
    I met a woman recently who told me she lives beside a golf course, doesn't play, but walks around the perimeter four times, twice a day. She's 83.

  3. These are funny and I am not a golfer. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  4. I miss it now I have had to give it up. Our aim was to always first on the tee

  5. Well that pretty much sums it up.

  6. Oh gosh I wish I'd seen this earlier, I would have shared a few with a favorite co-worker of mine who went to another store. He's a big golfer! For a going away gift I got him a set of emoji golf balls! He'll have a hilariously-rocking-fun time sharing those with his golf buddies!
