When people find out I golf they always brag about how good they are. 90% of the time they are 5-10 strokes worse.

Why not just say about 100 and surprise everyone

I laugh but why not just let your game speak for itself

That's a given. You hole out and you can prime time it all you want. You earned it

Often times people want you to know they are serious about golf or letting you know they love it ..  Not just in golf but in life we often think we are better than we really are or better than our past results have shown .. Often times this comes across as bragging ..

I'm a very low handicap golfer, self made millionaire, corporate titan, and I enjoy yachting, combat shooting and ice climbing on the weekends when I'm not at one of my exclusive private country clubs that you couldn't afford, and even if you could they still wouldn't let you in.

So in conclusion, my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and their life is better than yours, damn right, it's better than yours, I could teach you but I'd have to charge.

This is the most annoying thing about golf for me. I could literally moan all day

My girlfriend works in a pro shop so I see a lot of people come in and out and talk to her about their round. You'd think they were all tiger woods the way they go on. I work very hard on my game and practice hard everyday. I'd never If someone asked me if I was any good say yeah I'm a good golfer. I'm a 15 hcap for f##k sake. I find the people that are all talk are the ones that can't break 100. I've never met a scratch golfer who would go on about how good they are. I actually avoid my club on the weekends as weekend warriors frustrate me so much. They say 'yeah I can hit a ball' then shank 20 in a row on the range.

The empty can rattles the loudest.


Arrrrrrrrrr!!

And breath ;)

Line up all the golfers who have NEVER, EVER bragged once in their lives, regardless of handicap, and you couldn't make a foursome.

Meh, no bragging here. When I meet someone who is a "self proclaimed good golfer" I smile nicely nod my head and let them say their peace. I have found that this is a good approach in avoiding the "good" golfer from pulling out his tour issue tape measure to see who has a bigger club. ;)

Oprah does my laundry. Michael Jordan cuts my grass. You know how frivolous I am? I drive my hummer to the end of my driveway just to get the mail, and thats all i use it for.

I got 6 stock brokers, 14 doctors, 2 lawyers, 17 accountants, and 8 other lawyers to watch the first 2 lawyers. You know how rich I am? You know how much credit I got? I threw away all my platinum cards and I got a uranium card.

I drive a rolls royce pickup truck. I got the penthouse with the helicopter pad on the roof and snipers in the other building to make sure no one steals my helicopter.

Brag, no....answer questions honestly, yes

Just as annoying as bragging is the guy who is a +2 and says he isn't good. Just so someone will chime in and say "what are you talking about, you're awesome!"

That is the proxy brag. I hate braggers by proxy just as much as braggers

If someone asks me if i am good at golf, i'll tell them yes. That is not bragging
