Twenty or so years ago my wife decided she'd like to play golf. I agreed that would be good for us, but suggested that she take real lessons from our club pro and not expect me to teach her. Her reply, "Oh, that's how it was going to be anyway." :)

Fast forward a couple of years and she's done well with her lessons and is having fun playing bogey golf mostly with the women at the club. One of her friends, upon hearing that my wife and I are playing in a couples tournament asks her if she's got that roll of duct tape in her bag. "What ever for?" says Rita. "For his mouth when he starts telling you how to play." says her friend. Point taken!

My wife is also a golfer, she is starting her second year and is doing great. But, like someone else posted in the thread previously, I've had these types of responses...

Me: "Let me put some ladies golf balls into your bag, the lower compression may be more suited to your swing/game".

Her: "No, I like the harder golf balls, I don't need ladies golf balls".

Her, after hitting the new Srixon Ladies Soft Feel balls I bought her... "Wow, those balls feel great! I love those!"


Me: "I'm thinking about getting you that new Ping GLe Driver for your set..."

Her: "Don't spend money on a driver I don't hit the Driver well yet. Let's wait a couple years, the price will go down."

After I buy her the new Ping GLe Driver as an early gift...

Her: "Wow! I really hit this driver well, waay farther than my old one, the flight is so much better! I Love it!"

But perhaps my favorite thing to hear her say as she laughs after these types of situations is... "You Were Right." "-P

BTW... Love You Babe! ;-P

My wife doesn't object to me playing and practicing but has no interest in golf, doesn't understand it and I've given up trying to tell her when something good to exceptional has happened in a game.

Yet before I go out I get - 'Bring me back an albatross'.

Me (once)  - Yeah I'd be happy with a flipping birdie.

Her - but an albatross is a bird.

I am one of those poor golfers that after many years of playing golf, have never had a hole in one. Close many times, but no cigar. My wife took up golf about 5 years ago and plays in a league with her friends. Nothing too serious. We were playing together last year and she cans a par 3 from about 125 yards. Her comment. "See, it's not so hard. I don't why you have never done that"

Yep. Still married, but it was touch and go for a few minutes.

No ace for me either. 31 years and counting...most of which spent between a +2 and a 4 HC.

I was playing with my dad and 2 brothers with my GF riding along. I s*** you not the 1st swing my then-girlfriend-now-wife ever took on a real golf course she banked a persimmon 4-wood off the pin on a par 3 from 130 (she rode along the first hole and didn't want to hit any as it was "too long"). Stayed on the lip. I told her if that had gone in she'd have had to find her own ride home.
