Ok, time for some serious humor... If Elvis had played golf...
Would he have worn a polo and khakis?
Would his rock 'n roll have affected his swing?
Would he have taken snacks along?
Would he have used a Caddie?
Would he have used a caddie? (2 different questions)
What if he had been a golf pro, but still been... Elvis?
If Elvis had played golf... what's your take?

Ahead of his time, he was wearing dry fit polyester way before we were.  Would be known for backing off putts to bring in female caddies for another read.  Minimum of 20 clubs in the bag at all times.  Balls with no markings other than silhouette Elvis.

Elvis The Pelvis golf alter ego Fast Hips Presley would have a golf music
hit with "You ain't nothin' but a hot dog". No doubt his swing would have
affected any ladies on the course and, of course, he would have a rep
as a grinder when he was seriously trying to score.

Great thread topic. Hilarious. Having been to Graceland decades ago I see him with a shag carpet bag in a Caddie mini-cart. A little like Al Czervik but with better rhythm.

His golf cart would have looked like a mini Cadillac and his swing would have too much hip movement.

I grew up in Tennessee and believe I remember that he played in the Memphis tournament pro am.  Not every year, but did some.

A visit to Graceland is eye opening. It's a living illustration of Jeff Foxworthy's line that you can't give rednecks money.....a glorious explosion of lack of sophistication.

I've also been to Elvis's birth home. It's about as big as a modern bathroom....hard to believe how far he travelled.

He probably would've been serious about the round and kept chit-chat to minimum but enjoyed a fair bit of money games...

A little less conversation and a little more action please.

Also would've, unfortunately, probably been an on-course pro...

It's a groovy night and I can show you how to use it.
