Golfing under the influence


Recommended Posts

A few weeks back a buddy I was playing with pulled out his flask of scotch. The flask was in his bag and was warm. At first I declined then; I said let me have it. I took a pull off it and man... it was good! I'm pretty sure scotch isn't supposed to be had warm but I liked it.

It has always seemed to me that beer, whiskey, and SOME cordials like brandy, schnapps, etc. taste good on the golf course, as long as it's not to excess.  Cold beer in the summer, and whiskey etc when it's cold.  Leave it to PJ to get it backwards!   :P

Nothing beats a little Jack Daniels Tennessee honey in the coffee during the cold rounds of golf

Last February Foz introduced me to Wild Turkey Honey Sting.  Great on a cool day, and I liked the bite of the Ghost Pepper.  Nobody had it out here in the west that I could find, so I ordered it.  I think I may have started something because the store now stocks it.

Is it bad when you walk in the club house and there is a vodka lemonade waiting for you?

 

And yes, this is before I start, at the turn and after the round.

I drink all whisk(e)y neat, with no water or ice. Just my preference. Drink it any way you enjoy it!

Played in the member member tourney a few weeks ago, and the team we played with on Sunday, one of them is a drinker, big time, he was hammered by hole 4, he shot 71, I'm talking he was cant walk straight slur your words, barely stand up drunk, and shot 71, and didn't miss a putt from 15 feet and in all day. It was ridiculous to watch.

if I am having a rough day and not playing too good, sometimes I will drink a couple beers to relax me. It usually helps but, only 2 or 3 at most.

Does not really bother my game all that much and if I drink during a round but I play early so generally don't have anything on the course.  Lately I have been playing real early and meeting the family at the beach club where there are always cold beers waiting for me in the cabana.

Honestly that makes me mad because I've only shot 71 a handful of times...sober. But good for him

I don't ever drink when I play. Even during scrambles. I don't enjoy playing under the influence.

I'm not a prude by any length, but I can't hold my beer at the best of times these days, let alone when trying to play respectable golf :D

So, on a day with a heat index of 106 and playing with two guys that shot 120, plus a guy that shot 97, I couldn't take it anymore and had to drink a couple of cold beverages at the turn. It actually calmed my nerves on a day that start poorly and resulted in a much better back nine.

I played in an outing on Saturday. It was 97* on the course with a heat index of 105*. The humidity was just killer. We drank our share of beer, but we also drank plenty of gatorade and water, along with it. I think I only pissed once! ;)
