    Went to a local Country Club "Golf Outing" yesterday.
    It was rainy, cool and overcast at 10 am Shotgun.
    I was going to wear shorts ---
    however, I figured I'd get wet + cold driving around
    on the golf cart.
    I always walk.....and love to play in shorts !
    I put on a nice pair of jeans.
    We were 10 mins from starting and a "Bag Room" kid comes
    up to me -- asks "How ya doin' ?"
    I'm wondering "Ok....what's up with this ?"
    Kid tells me "We have a rule here....no jeans."
    *** I'm still a Country Club Rule Breaker !!!:evillaugh****
    ( and I thought i was just getting old + meaningless )
    "Oh ?.....okay.....I have some shorts in the car."
    I changed my pants between cars in the parking lot.:Þ
    Yes.....there was a bare ass in the Club's parking lot !
    I am still a rebel ! YES !:evillaugh
    *
    Kid sees me just before starting ---
    I think he was looking for me, actually.
    I just nodded.
    He thanked me --
    I'm guessing he was probably expecting some kind of trouble
    or resentment.
    Hey....I caddied 16 seasons at Country Clubs -- I know "the game".
    *
    So my group starts out with a bang.
    I drop a 15 ft sidehill / downhill putt from the fringe - birdie !
    We birdie the first 3 holes + we're thinking "Hey...just maybe ?"
    Bogey-- a par 5 -- with relatively short putt - we all missed.
    Par - then bogey............and then.........it all ended.
    We sucked !:Þ
    So I decided "Okay...it's beer time !":wave:
    *
    Food was great.
    Lotsa beer carts.
    It NEVER rained.
    I wasn't at work !
    And my partner won a nice hybrid in the raffle --
    ( He ALWAYS wins in these raffles.......ALWAYS ! )
    *
    Not a bad day for this Rule Breaker.:nworthy:

    I've played in a lot of scrambles with the different companies I buy from. I always look at my partner's bags on the first tee to see if we are going to be competitive. Not always an accurate indication, but usually it is.
    If I think we have a chance, I'll grind and rah rah the team, to try and make it happen.
    If I think we don't have a chance....I drink beer. :evillaugh

    Good one, it was a group ahead of us a few years back, the guy finished his business, took a swig, then grabbed his club and took his shot. He had his priorities in order.

    Joe, it can get even worse. No shorts at LACC. There was a time when you couldn't wear a hat with a commercial logo either. Haven't played there in awhile though. Really a great course if you can deal with the, uh, stringent conventions of the membership.

    My running gag, the rest of the round, was ---
    "Gee, I thought the Ranger was gonna tell me
    to "change my shorts + Tuck in your DAMN SHIRT !":evillaugh

    I was a starter for a while at a nice course

    I told a fellow in jeans to change his pants .He asked me if he could put on the warm -up,excercise type pants he had in his trunk,I said ok.
    I told another worker about it and he said"your still alive?" The guy was one of the "boys",but what they didnt know that I played ball with his older brother while he was a little tyke watching us play. He always treated me with respect from those days. The guy I played with was running an offshore casino at that time and the golfer ,well whatever.

    When we were at Wynn

    The restaurants were listed as casual,buiness casual and business for the steakhouse. I didnt have a suit with me so we hit Sinatras ,business casual.
    Theres a whole different way of dressing for the younger people and me even though they may make more money than I ever dreamed of. It's just the way it is ,when I was young and if I showed up for a date wearing a long sleeve shirt,not tucked in and jeans,the girl would think I was a real JO. Years ago we were going to Phillips Steak House(who remembers ) and Mrs. JG insisted I bring a sports coat in July.

    Went golfing with my brother last year. He wore jean shorts. That wasn't against any rules the golf course had, but it is against the rules of humanity.

    I did tell him no one wears jean shorts anymore.

    If someone is in the ocean wearing jean shorts and gets in trouble, at most SoCal beaches I don't think the lifeguards will even leave their tower.

    I think you may be prevaricating on that one, but I get your point, all I know is Levi's and Wrangler are advertising those jean shorts as we speak.

    There are whole worlds out there that people who dont live in those worlds couldn't possibly understand. people who rarely drink cant possibly understand why others spend their whole lives at the bar, just as you cant explain gambling to a non-gambler...and there are people who put on those jean shorts, and stand there tall and proud. :wink2:
