I'm in line with quite a few of these confessions.  Some of the guys that frequent the "Rules of Golf" sub-forum must have bloody tongues right now from biting them too hard.

Sometimes I don't replace my divot upon a poor iron shot. I always replace them when I stick in close, though.

On occasion I've been know to let out a "f*** me" after a particularly bad shot.  I admit this is not gentlemanly.  

If I have a bad lie that is going to injure me or damage my club the foot wedge comes to the rescue.

If in a cart sometimes I drive past the "no carts past this point" sign.

If I get to the green and my ball is particularly muddy or dirty I might just finish the hole with a different golf ball :/

Sometimes I'll even do #2 when playing with buddies who won't give me crap about it.

Okay, I can tolerate peeing in the woods during a round, but doing #2 might be beyond borderline.

When agreed upon before the round. Fairway winter rules -- in fairway find grass lie. Never again hit from tree root -- free drop. Always play ready golf -- always out of turn.

I have never tipped a bag guy.
I still use my ping eye 2 wedges.

This post made me laugh.  


If someone in my group hits a bad shot I don't say anything.  But, if one of the guys is having one of those days where nothing goes well I'm sure to tell them how great they are playing :)

I pick my nose and flick. But will still shake hands with same hand.
I carry wipes for a possible inconvenient moment.
I will not play traps that aren’t fit to play.
I will mulligan early in the year.
I play clean and place or at least improved lies on some public courses.
