    If I don't go out to play, someone will find something less pleasant for me to do.

    I have often asked myself that question mainly after a three putt. Never come up with a good answer.

    Three putts are better than four putts. Speaking of which, I will admit to once five putting a hole.

    I play because I need a way to relax and get some exercise. I know of no other way to take a nice walk amd enjoy the fellowship with others than on the golf course

    I've just dropped the gf off at this place for her to play in a scramble. Stunning day.

    He's probably posting to ShotTalk from his mobile phone sitting in the waiting room of the Australian version of Bunny Ranch.

    Well, if she's playing golf I'm thinking he's having tea and getting his nails done.

    You feckers. I almost popped a rib laughing.

    SWMBO got an invitation from the neighbours. They needed someone with a vagina to play to replace a last minute pull out

    Oh wait, what did I just say?
