Not all that funny to me, because it's true, but more often than not I find out somewhere on the 17th or 18th hole (because I'm stupid enough to text and ask) that when I get home I'm having chicken and not beef for dinner - round quickly goes to heck.  My mental game is, well, mental.

Last season I blamed every bad shot on weight loss.  I'd lost 30lbs from Dec 16-Mar 17.  Honestly I think it was a valid excuse.  My swing didn't come around until late July lol

'Keeping it out of the wind' - said any time I fail to get the ball launched, especially on a lovely calm day.
'The other fairway is flatter' - said on the 8th at Rye Hill because I keep fading onto the 9th. It's true though.

How am I supposed to play when the tee box isn't perfectly level?

Never mind that I say that phrase standing in my second bunker of the hole

In regard to a valid defense, the same can be said for probiotics.  And maybe that poor golf shot leads to a feeling of dismay that, in turn, leads to poor a decision about eating.  But that's no excuse for getting an unhealthy hot dog on the turn.  It's a terrible cycle.

Blame the Sprinkler head.
Then blame the guy who etched the number to the head.  
Then look for support from the nearest guy.
Then blame him.
Then take a bogey.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

That 7 looks like a 2.
A$$hole can't write a 7.
Does that look like a 7 or a 2?  
Ah, you're f--ing blind.

One of my buddies always blames the grounds crew for aiming the tee markers incorrectly. Makes me laugh every time. I ask him if he even bothers to look up before he pulls the trigger and he says:” should I have to?! “
