I have had a couple of occasions where some guy claims that they can't play golf with women.   A case in point, the wife and I have an agreement that when we vacation, there must be a beach for her and a golf course for me.  In this instance, we were in Aruba.  Going to the course as a single, the starter immediately teamed me with another single and a twosome.   After meeting the guy that was the other single, he no sooner asked where was the twosome, when two real attractive and well constructed college aged ladies arrived.  His immediate response was "Oh God, we're playing with women".   My response was do you see what I see".  The long and short, he was a jerk the whole round and played rather poorly.   Me, I had a great time.  Oh yea, the ladies played on Division 1 college golf teams and beat us both using the same tees.  Also, the ladies and I made tee times to play together again the next day, we did not ask the jerk to join us.

Pretty sure I was 6,16,17,29 today.

Had a round booked pretty early...could be another reason there Tee time was too early.

Anyway I'm away working out of country for 10 days and really wanted to get a last round in before I left, but I hadn't finished packing, house chores and really getting my act together for the trip. So showed up had a lot of fun (always do) but had a terrible round and the worst part was I knew it was coming as soon as I got up. I felt like I should just stay home...but I can't not go if I have the time right?! Now for a break and hope the game comes back when I arrive back in Canada.

Maybe I should listen to my body when it's screaming just stay home and sleep and not get up at 5am to go golfing.

A lot of those are legit, because it is mind over matter. However, for most players the chaos usually wins. The best players are able to get pushed around, ignore the distractions, and still play well. 

 

The "I suck" one is my goto excuse and what everyone tells me so it has to be true.
