Golf Truths

Absolute Truths of Golf:

  1.  If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age.

  2.  Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.

  3.  When you look up and cause an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.

  4.  Any change works for a maximum of three holes and a minimum of not at all.

  5.  No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse.

  6.  Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.

  7.  Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing.

  8.  When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.

  9.  If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up, or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.

  10.    It's not a gimme if you're still away.
