    YOUR rules for golf...

    The thread about what to wear (and not to wear) on the golf course got me thinking. What are YOUR rules while playing golf? For me, I couldn't care less what anyone on the golf course wears, just...

    1. Don't be loud and obnoxious (have fun, just don't be THAT guy)
    2. Yell 'FORE' if you hit your ball in my direction
    3. Put your empty cans and other trash in the trash bins
    4. Let me play through if you're playing slow and no one's in front of you (I'll do the same for you)
    5. Don't spend more than a few minutes looking for your ball
    6. Don't ask me if you can join my two- or three-some if the course isn't busy. You're a stranger. I don't want to talk to you. Go get your own group of friends.
    7. DO ask me if you can join my GF and I for a three-some if you're an attractive female
    8. Repair your divots

    What about you?

    1. Play ready golf. You don't have to be fast. Just don't be sitting in the cart when it's your turn. Have you club selected and be standing by your ball.

    2. Dude....the cigar.....it's phallic and you look stupid with that large thing in your mouth. The only thing worse is the guy who has to have his cigar in his mouth when he just goes and watches a golf tournament live.

    3. Chain smokers on the course. You're gross.

    I couldn't agree more on this. I'm a nice guy, so I can't say no, but a couple of my buddies have flat out told some guys that they couldn't play with us. It sucks having to make small talk with strangers throughout a round.

    As a non-smoker who enjoys about 1/2 dozen cigars a year, this means nothing to me. I can't stand ciggy smoke indoors, but outdoors, I don't care what tool people use to kill themselves.

    Golf and cigars are a match made in heaven.

    Some of my more enjoyable rounds have been when I let a "stranger" golf with my group. Being anti-social is your right however.

    I'm sure you've had some pretty miserable experiences, too. It can certainly go either way, and it's not worth the risk to me.

    Re: YOUR rules for golf...

    1) USGA rules throughout the round (no 'winter rules', no mulligans, stroke and distance on OB)
    2) Tip the hot beer girl alot the first time she comes around so she remembers you or buy your own gatorade, water, or beer from the clubhouse if she is a mutt.
    3) Pee in an actual bathroom unless you are playing in Arkansas...See rule #9 for another exception
    4) Hole in One gets his beer for free and a designated driver to take them home
    5) Can't bring your girlfriend or wife to play with
    6) $5 from each player at the beginning of the round to go towards the CPIR which awards the player who hits the most Cart Paths In Regulation for the round
    7) Mess with the governor on the golf cart when the marshall is out of view
    8) Unless you are playing a $5 ball or on pace for a course record, I'm not going to help you look for your ball
    9) If a group hits into you more than once, leave a small dead animal or urinate in the cup.
    10) If you pick your ball up without putting it out, you buy drinks after the round. If you do it more than once, you buy dinner

    Re: YOUR rules for golf...

    1. If you are playing at a public course playing double bogey golf, there is no need for you to walk around the whole green and crouch down to line up a putt. If you are good, thats fine...but when I've played behind you all day and know you're playing about 20 over, there is no need to know every possible contour of the green.

    2. Let faster players play through. Just because you can hurry and tee-off to avoid a faster player catching up doesn't make you a faster player when it takes 5 different forty yard shots to get to the point where the person behind you can drive.

    3. Profanity is encouraged.

    4. Gambling on holes is a must.

    5. Unless you are a very good golfer, don't try to say you are playing a draw, fade or cut. You swing at the ball, and it does what it wants. If, on occassion, you hit the ball and it does manage to hook/slice around a tree, that was not a draw or a fade, it was a lucky hook/slice.
