Worst/Best Club Ho Shenanigans?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

SWMBO has her shoes/clothes/estate sales addiction thing, and I leave all of that alone.   This creates the need for her to reciprocate, thus, no complaining when those 48" boxes keep showing up on the porch.  Maybe just a little complaining. 

Get more grief from the kids, who are unpaid spies sounding "the golf package has arrived alarm" for Mom .  "Another golf club, Dad????"  Dad is so simple-minded. Golf, golf, golf."

We have our own spending money so she's free to spend her money on what she wants, and that goes for me, too.

Now, that doesn't mean I haven't occasionally "borrowed" a month or two in advance 🤣. With my new putter, for example, I spent a month or two ahead plus was planning on selling my old Spider X to make up the difference. Of course, my wife (who does golf but hasn't in the past two years due to shoulder surgery) picked up my Spider X the other day and rolled a few before proclaiming that she was going to use it as her putter next season. I can't very well charge her the value, can I? Haha.

The other day my wife spent a grand on massages, yes, a grand on massages, because she got a 20% credit.  So now she has $1.2K sitting in credit at this spa, and we know we'll be assigned here for 2 more years, so she'll be able to burn that up in 2 years no problem and ultimately save us money as compared to pay-as-you-go.  But still, a grand on massages.

My thoughts as I was listening to this:  "Save this one.  Mental note:  Don't argue, tell her 'if you think it's a good deal then I support it' and then drop this hammer when you get a discount on your next irons."

Got to think long term...

You guys have seen my putters but you should see my wife’s shoes and purses Always go with the long play and not short term. Heck I got her to the point that she set a number and if it over that then we have to have a talk and I have hit that number once.

A few other good tips...

Use head covers that are not specific to clubs. That way never draws attention when you swap in a new buy. I told the wife years ago I did it not to draw attention to what was in my bag. Great long term play.

If you plan to buy clubs have your golf bag in the car. Best way to sneak in a 15th club is with the other 14 in your bag.

Most places will take the stickers off the clubs for you. Makes it easier to say “oh, that...something I had hanging around that I wanted to try out”

Don’t draw attention to your bag with your significant other. I don’t know what’s in her purse and she normally doesn’t know what’s in my golf bag (well she does now after paying the PXG bill).

Ah yes, I have a Denver Broncos FW headcover that I'll occasionally get out if there's potential for a club change in the near future...

I am lucky that my wife doesn't like to buy very many things, she would rather get rid of things, so she doesn't have very many expensive habits. These days, she is mainly stockpiling disinfecting products. I feel like we have a lifetime supply of hand sanitizer. I am no better though, I have been stockpiling N95 masks, surgical masks, and other types of masks. I have different masks depending on what I feel like for the day lol.

Lucky for me my wife’s a golfer and has a problem buying shoes, so I don’t get too much shtick when clubs/gear/balls show up on the doorstep. She did, however comment on the $450 I dropped on a shaft for my driver this summer. But even she agreed it was worth it when she saw my results.

My fiance knows i’m always moving clubs in and out.   Her only “rule” is we dont have room for more than one set in the closet at home.  So any others have to stay in my office at the course.  
If i ever leave this job, i’m going to be up the creek without a paddle.

If you ever need a place to store the extra, let me know, I got plenty of room on the basement, and I can stop by during a trip back home from Maryland.

I guess whats different about my shenanigans is that i tend not to stockpile drivers and irons, just maybe a few putters at a time. But i do churn through drivers and irons fairly quickly and am always selling and trading in stuff.

Fair enough, but we still can divide the stock, making it easy to hide all of the clubs that need to go under protection.
