Golf Rules To Live By

Not sure who to credit with writing these but I'll at least show you where I found them. I'm sure we could add to the list and make it better.

Enjoy.

ONLY A TRUE GOLFER WILL UNDERSTAND

GÇóThe game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.
GÇóIf you want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age.
GÇóSince bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.
GÇóWhen you look up and cause an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.
GÇóAny change works for a maximum of three holes and a minimum of not at all.
GÇóNo matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse.
GÇóNever keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing.
GÇóWhen your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.
GÇóGolferGÇÖs who claim they donGÇÖt cheat, also lie.
GÇóIf youGÇÖre afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank lay-up, or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
GÇóThe less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing.
GÇóThe inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all your errors.
GÇóIf it ainGÇÖt broke, try changing your grip.
GÇóItGÇÖs not a gimme if youGÇÖre still away.
GÇóEveryone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.
GÇóA golf match is a test of your skill against your opponentGÇÖs luck.
GÇóItGÇÖs surprisingly easy to hole a 50-foot putt when youGÇÖre lying 10.
GÇóCounting on your opponent to inform you when he breaks a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his own haircut.
GÇóNon chalant putts count the same as chalant putts.
GÇóThe shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree.
GÇóThere are two kinds of bounces: unfair bounces, and bounces just the way you meant to play it.
GÇóYou can hit a 2-acre fairway 10% of the time, and a 2-inch branch
90% of the time.
GÇóEvery time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe.
GÇóIf you want to hit a 7-iron as far as Tiger Woods does, simply try to lay up just short of a water hazard.
GÇóTo calculate the speed of a playerGÇÖs downswing, multiply the speed of his backswing by his handicap. Example: backswing 20 mph, handicap 15, downswing 600 mph.
GÇóThere are two things you can learn by stopping your backswing at the top and checking the position of your hands: how many hands you have, and which one is wearing the glove.
GÇóHazards attract. Fairways repel.
GÇóYou can put GÇ£drawGÇ¥ on the ball, you can put GÇ£fadeGÇ¥ on the ball, but no golfer can put GÇ£straightGÇ¥ on the ball.
GÇóA ball you can see in the rough from 50 yards away is not yours.
GÇóIf there is a ball in the fringe and a ball in the bunker, your ball is the one in the bunker.
GÇóIf both balls are in the bunker, yours is in the footprint.
GÇóDonGÇÖt buy a putter until youGÇÖve had a chance to throw it.

That's great.

How about this one... "The club you hit dead straight at the range will slice just as bad as all of the others on the course."

"Your 2 foot birdie tap-in is really a 4 footer for par."

2ND THAT WHOMSLEY!

It's easier to get up at 6:00 AM to play golf than at 10:00
to mow the yard.

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

A good golf partner is one who's always slightly worse than
you are.. that's why I get so many calls to play with friends.

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

I completely relate to the first one jessehunt85 wrote. All week, I hit the snooze bar and struggle to make it to the office on time. Come Saturday, I am usually awake before the alarm clock goes off.

The best one, by far: "When you look up and cause an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again."

@ georgelohr- Just make sure it's a collared shirt, so we can wear it on the course :)

It's not a slice, it's a power-fade.
