The bet lie/excuse I've ever heard was yesterday.  We played Longaberger from the blues, 6,664 yards 72.2/134.  Guy shoots a 110.  His response? "Next time we need to play from the tips.  I was too close and had to use my 9 iron too much."

Oh man. Those tricky 9 iron approaches. I'm sure he'd much rather have a 3 iron into every green. Poor guy.
Yeah, so at Virtues (Longaberger) from the black tees, on #4 @ 563 yds. he could hit his probably typical driver or 3-wood at say 330, then have a nice soft 233 yd. 3-iron into the green, that should make him happier...

Oh man, played with so many of these people so it's funny reading these.

I suck, and I tell people I do. :)  One round on #1, I luckily hit a straight drive, then followed up with a good wedge shot pin high for a look at a 10ft birdie. One of the guys we got paired up with said "Now we know who the ringer is" and I quickly said "no way, those will probably be my 2 best shots of the day, don't let that fool you" I ended up 3-putting for a bogey! I was ecstatic with that hole!  

My funnest rounds have been with people that were honest about their games.

I just play golf.  If a guys says hes scratch or a 12 I'm not impressed or unimpressed either way, but I can guarantee I never asked him what his handicap was since I don't care.

Guys who always want to know what everyone's handicap is and expect every shot/round to reflect that number perfectly are worse to play with than liars.  Just MO.

I just tell people that I suck ahead of time.  Set the expectations low so that people will never be disappointed.

Ha. That's what I do. Always add a few to the hcp when they ask.

I do that on my travels. Something satisfying about being paired up with people who are "a legit 5" only to see them triple the first.

"Shoulda warmed up."

Should've got lessons mate but there we go.

We met someone like that in St Cloud last week always going on about how he drove it three hundred plus. After the fourth sub 200 hundred drive my mate said asked him if he was including the cart ride in his carry total. Suddenly his back was stiff and he drove off after another two horrible drives.

Reminds me of new years 2017.  I play two consecutive rounds in ft Myers.  Shoot low 80's.   Couple bad holes but thought I was ok after 2 WEEK hiatus


Next day. I play raptor bay for $25 golfnow.

The 3 guys I'm paired with all wanna play tips.  They ask me my HI. I reply 8 9 maybe a 10 ...i look at the scorecard and agree.  I par the 1st hole.  The only one under a 6.  Then I proceed to shoot a fat 102.  I couldn't hit a driver 3w nothing. I had no long game.  Had to tee off with irons

My favorite story took place a couple of years ago. I was paired with a college kid who said he had been playing golf his whole life.
On the first hole he missed a 4 footer and he said, "Man I have never missed a putt that short."

I immediately questioned him on that and told him that I once missed a 3 inch putt in a tournament because I lost my balance on a one handed tap in. The kid refused to relent.

Two holes later he missed a 3 footer. 4 holes after that he missed what was close to a 2 footer.

Finally on the 18th - in a pin position that was clearly evil he missed a putt under a foot.

As we walked off the course I said to him in a nice but teasing manner:
"Well you can now say you haven't missed a putt longer than 10 inches. But remember you have me beat."

I feel like I see so many very low digit singles in people’s avatars, and to maintain you wouldn’t be on this site as the 1-3 caps I know are out grinding to the point the last thing they would be doing is writing novels on WRX

*and some of their posts i.e. “2 stroke penalty in the water” seems like a straight up lie, yet I’d a single....if wasn’t playing that way for years that person would be scratch or better....not buying it.

What don’t you understand? Maybe you need “hooked on Phonics;)” Read the topic posted recently I described by a one handicap who thought hitting in water was a 2-stroke penalty (would you believe an almost scratch golfer doesn’t understand the basic rules?). And other point seems he who makes the most posts on WRX has lowest handicap OR is a 2,3,4 etc, which I do t think is attainable behind a pc screen all day. Therefore I think their caps aren’t true. Making one a liar. Get it?

I've mentioned my handicap on here for context on occasion or when relevant to some story, but outside of league where someone may ask because they haven't looked at the card, I can count on one hand in decades how many times someone has asked me what my handicap is, just doesn't seem to come up in conversation. Always surprising to me how much it does in other places/situations for other people.

I got the topic you were referencing, but I'm pretty sure the OP in that thread had is handicap listed as a nine (I know that because I commented that I found it strange a single digit wouldn't know that rule). There was some talk in there later that the OP may have even been listing a nine hole handicap from his league.

But anyway, as to the low singles posting a lot, I'm sure many do a lot of their WRXing while at work. And their grinding at the game after work.

I hated to have to post yesterday's round. It's going to cost me a stroke at next weekends 2 man best ball tournament.

The best round is one where you post a high enough score to not lower the cap, but still make money(I know I'm going to catch flak for that, but just like you referenced DPB,  it's very common)!

I know a handful of guys that only play weekend golf (work through the week) that are scratch or better. They all grew up playing the game competitively.

I'm not that low (mine went up during the winter) and I post here only during work hours during the week :)
Still have plenty of time to play and practice.


Edit: as for the guys that lie, for me it's always the guys telling me how far they hit it before we ever play a round. It's rare that I talk golf with someone that isn't 20 to 50 yards longer than me off the tee.

Never tell people what you usually shoot BEFORE you play golf with them......or after.  It keeps you from lying.

I feel like I see so many very low digit singles in people's avatars, and to maintain you wouldn't be on this site as the 1-3 caps I know are out grinding to the point the last thing they would be doing is writing novels on WRX

*and some of their posts i.e. "2 stroke penalty in the water" seems like a straight up lie, yet I'd a single....if wasn't playing that way for years that person would be scratch or better....not buying it.

Anybody have a spare Rosetta stone? I have no idea what this says
What don't you understand? Maybe you need "hooked on Phonics;)" Read the topic posted recently I described by a one handicap who thought hitting in water was a 2-stroke penalty (would you believe an almost scratch golfer doesn't understand the basic rules?). And other point seems he who makes the most posts on WRX has lowest handicap OR is a 2,3,4 etc, which I do t think is attainable behind a pc screen all day. Therefore I think their caps aren't true. Making one a liar. Get it?

First, its "hooked on Phonics" ;).  The quote goes inside punctuation, the emoticon isn't part of the hooked on phonics title.  You may need to grab a copy of Hooked on Grammar.

Second, in my first tournament, I asked the guys I played with if I could clear the sand off the green between my ball on the hole.  Knowing a voluminous rulebook and being able to swing 110 mph while maintaining spine angle arn't the same thing.

I assume "do t" is "don't".  It gets dark here at around 815 pm, and my club (TPC Louisiana) doesn't close until 8p.  I start at 7 am so I can be out at 3p and then play late.  I don't make it to 8pm every night, but 2-3 hours every day is more than enough time to maintain a low single digit.  I'm not sure where you are from, but not everywhere has a golf "season" and, at least here, we can play for 3-5 hours after work lets out most days, and we can play 12 months a year.

Also I live in New Orleans so most of the time nobody really cares if you show up to work or not.  If you decide to go in, that's just lagniappe.  I grew up in new england and I imagine maintaining a low cap would be much, much more difficult up there (golf six months a year and even then its dark at 630).
