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 carry my driver 300 yards"  You know that is a lie when you outdrive the guy and you only drive the ball 260.

When they say they shot 84 but at least twice a hole you hear "reload".

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
  They must have thought my handicap was all BS

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."
