I can tell you one group all wearing jeans you might pull up to the tee behind, and then you'll never see them again.

...the single that gets paired with you starts giving swing tips on the first tee, then realizes he left his golf shoes in his car and has to go all the way back to get them.  True story.

OR

...you show up for your 12pm tee time, on time, only to find out that there was a frost delay that didn't get lifted until 11am.

when you're three holes in to a round with a brand new set of shoes, and think "my left toe area feels weird, like a sock is bunched up."  Then you check and the dessicant pack falls out.  I can't brain today, I have the dumb.

Our league used to wind up having the high school team, boys and girls, playing their weekly PRACTICE round in front of us. The course finally rescheduled them.

When you have to contend with a few idiots that want to complain about pace of play 5 minutes into the round. How’s about shut the f- up hit the ball when it’s clear. Mean while sit back and relax.

Happened to me recently. The group in front of us was teeing off from the TIPS at a bit over 7000 yards. On hole #1 the first two guys made swings that at least appeared to indicate that moving up only one set of tees would be about right. From the TIPS there was a water carry (par 4) of around 125 yards and the next two hit their ball in the water. Doesn't look good.

FORTUNATELY these guys actually had a sense of pace and knew how to mostly keep up even though I have never before seen golf carts fly back/forth across fairways like those did. They really were not far behind after 6 holes where ongoing knee problems forced me off the course.

You decide to try to play golf on a nice weather day in the spring in Myrtle Beach. I would almost rather go swim in the Atlantic with fish strapped to my body in the hopes a shark eats me than play another 6.5 hour round.

The course is soaking, the rain is coming back, first comp off back tees and the piece de resistance...the lads in front are playing garbage but taking ages due to a load of side bets. We now have a group of about a dozen who hold the field up because they are playing for money and not their handicap or prizes. And relax.

When you tee off at a much anticipated tournament in a golf shirt and shorts, promptly go double, triple, then the front you thought would come through later in the day arrives, bringing rain, 20 mph wind gusts, and drops the temps 25 degrees.

4 foursomes of young men tee off in front of you wearing jeans and flannel shirts. (In Florida)They were behind 2 foursomes of 70+ year old men and their wives. But wait, it gets better. You go to the starter, explain that there are only 2 of you, both of you are single digit handicaps that play quickly, and nobody is on 8 , 9 or 10. The starter says yea, go ahead and start on the back only to be told by the pro shop, via radio, that nobody will be going off of the back. After 5 holes we skipped everyone and went to 10 as the back was wide open. Played 10-18, then skipped to 15 and played 15-18 and never saw another golfer.

Played with a pair of low single digits on Friday ( a 3 and a 5 ) who play the tips, just over 7,000.  I'm as long as them from the tee, but playing from that length puts a lot of pressure on the weakest aspect of my game, my short game.  I normally play with a short knocker from the blues, right around 6,400, and it's amazing at how different a golf course can be from one set of tees to another.  Your angles off the tee change dramatically, the par 3s are all over 210 yards...ugh.

I knew it was going to be a long day when they asked if I wanted to play from the Golds
