There’s a saying in golf that goes “You don’t have to be good at golf to love it or play it.” However, golf etiquette is another story completely and quite necessary on the golf course.
Anybody who was taught to play this game the right way knows what we’re talking about – those unspoken rules of golf that show respect to your fellow players. You know; don’t step in someone’s line; don’t put your bag on the green; don’t talk while someone is swinging; etc.
The aforementioned rules are classic and well-known. But there are other, less obvious etiquette laws that golfers ignore all the time. Here are 10 discourteous acts that many uncultivated types employ on a regular basis.
Talking about How Great you Usually Play
We all know this person: “Boy, I can’t believe I just got another triple-bogey…Normally I break 80 at this course.” I wanna scream at the top of my lungs; “What are you, an idiot?! We both know that’s absolute bollocks!” You shouldn’t even be allowed on the golf course if you’re this guy. Seriously, we should be able to call in your ridiculousness along with an order on the ninth-tee. Then when we make the turn, a couple of rangers escort you to the parking lot, confiscate your clubs and send you home with a certified “never play golf again” card.
