These are good!  If you can think of any others ... add them to the list.

 

  1. It was my first time at the course.
  2. I didn't get a chance to warm up.
  3. I haven't had enough time to practice lately.
  4. It's impossible to score in this weather.
  5. It was too long of a wait between shots.
  6. I felt rushed 
  7. My mind was elsewhere today.
  8. Those pins were unfair
  9. I just couldn't score
  10. My caddie was giving me bad reads all day.  (Bones... you are outta here!)
  11. The water coolers were empty, felt like I was going to pass out.
  12. The guys I was playing with struggled, and it brought down my game.
  13. I didn't dress appropriately for this weather
  14. My shirt was too tight
  15. The greens weren't holding.
  16. I mentally checked out 
  17. I was just worn out
  18. I drank too much 
  19. I ate too much before the round
  20. I couldn't catch a break
  21. I was using borrowed equipment
  22. My distances were off all day
  23. My back was killing me (my personal favorite)
  24. I just had a lesson
  25. I had the yips
  26. I was nervous
  27. The greens were just aerated 
  28. I was just trying to have fun
  29. I suck!

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.
