Worst Golf Christmas Present Ever...


Recommended Posts

What is the absolute worst golf-related Christmas present you ever received?  

 

Did you get some "exploding" golf balls?  That on-the-toilet putting green?

 

A dozen Top-Flites from a well meaning but clueless Aunt?

 

Share! 'Tis the season, after all....

The "golf ball monogram kit".

As presents go, I rather have a wooden tee peg. 

Odd, I seem to have misplaced mine somehow...

The 2,000 tees that I got a few years ago with my name on them. I think there are still 1,999 of them in my basement gathering dust.

JMike's 137th putter. Someone must have picked it up on eBay for me. :)

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

LOL that one you used you must have used it here and lost it. Just kidding I find lots of tees. This is funny. last Christmas my insurance agent (who owns the agency) sent a little pack of 5 tees For me being a customer ever since he opened up. Now he plays golf with me and he knows I have many coffee cans full of tees. I gave him some crap over it of course. A member of his staff just really done her job and sent to all his customers. I asked him what about the ones who don't play golf? I will admit they are in the minority here. No it was not the worse I ever got I thought it was funny though. Actually really thinking about it I do not recall ever getting a bad golf related Christmas gift

Another thread reminded me of the Christmas my brother and I each had the same bright idea and got each other the Jan Stephenson calendar.  Actually, that was a pretty damn good Christmas present  B)  B)  B)

I believe it's the golf ball monogrammer for me.....I tried it on several balls and actually looked okay until you hit them, the impression just disappeared.

I've just about gotten everybody to not give me anymore golf stuff. So much crap and I feel sorry that they spent their money on me that way. They are all well meaning though. This year I got a Golf Storage Locker thing. Maybe I'll go put it together and see.

My golf storage locker is the back seat of my car.  Two sets of clubs and carts are in the trunk.

First gift I opened this year was the URO_Club. Not even lying. From my father in law. He thought it was hilarious. I wish he'd given me the value in a TGW.com gift card.

Now the question is -- did he buy two and give you the half price one and keep the other one?

I assembled my metal golf locker-stand thing yesterday and I have to say.... I kind of like it. For years I've always kept my bag, shoes, and various other clubs and stuff in my laundry room. Many other items stashed over in a corner and shoes scattered about. So yesterday I reorganized and I like what I see. I have my Wilson bag and my Ping moon-lite practice on the rack along with 3 pair of shoes a few dozen balls and a hat. There was also room to stash an umbrella and two other clubs. Not bad. Now if I'd just get out in my garage and get it better organized I'd be all set.
