Funniest (Good Natured) Golf Digs After a Bad Shot?


Middler

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the comment thread, there were a few good ones there, I thought a separate thread on good golf quips might be entertaining - we probably all need some new material. Stuff like the old “you hit the big ball first,” “you’re still away” and my Dad’s favorite “you’re standing too close to the ball - after you hit it.”

Let’s hear your best stuff?

My personal favorite, on putts left short, either "Nice lay up, or, "I don't think I would have layed that one up."

A similar take on a really bad putt, "Well, your speed was off, but at least your line was bad."

After drive "are you closer to green or tee?" First time wearing shorts after winter "you know you're standing OB"

The ones I always hear first have to do with standing on "the wrong side of the ball" or holding the club "the wrong way", the usual lefty barbs.  So I'll chuckle, approach my ball, and sarcastically notice that I am actually on the right side of the ball.  Not a funny nor a great one, but it generally moves the discussion on to more lively and original topics.

I like the one when the putt goes a mile offline from a mis-read, or way short and somebody quips "I don't know how that didn't go in" 🤣

This one I heard from a guy in his 80's during league play. His partner crushed one off the tee...waaaay off line, so much so it went to an adjoining fairway. As the guy was silently cussing himself out Fred said "That was one seriously F*ed up shot........ executed perfectly!" We all hit the ground laughing, it really lightened the moment.

These comments about hitting like a girl and implicating they don't hit very far is a pet peeve of mine. 

I want to encourage more women to play the game and, stuff like this does not help. 

If women overhear comments like this then it is very discouraging. 

I'm all for throwing shade but, not at the point of discouraging an entire gender. 

"Muscles shrinking since we all can't go to the gym anymore?" 

"Is that putter too heavy for you?"

"That ball must have lead weights in it?"

"Did you calculate that in Meters instead of Yards again?"

i don’t really think it’s all that serious, not every chirp has overarching societal implications

You know after you hit a tee shot OB .. and re-tee .. and then absolutely nail  the next one..?

Well in this case the saying is...

"Golf is eeeasy .. just hit your second shot, first." 🤪
