    I was thinking "Golf" - while it was snowing this a.m., -
    I was shovelling snow/ice + thinking about warm. green fairways
    Thought back to two quick stories - that occurred while i was caddying.
    #1)
    The group I was caddying for had some funny guys in it.
    But we were a 3 some + on the 3rd fairway ---
    the caddy master comes flying up with "a fourth" in the cart.
    Everyone GROANED out loud !
    It was one of the SLOWEST playing members + not much personality with it.
    *
    The guy drops a ball in the fairway + lines up his stance.........we wait......
    He stands over the ball motionless........we wait..........we wait......
    He wiggles his club........I take a step forward....but have to stop.......he's motionless
    over the ball STILL !.........we wait..........and wait............people exhale.......we wait....
    HE FINALLY SWINGS !
    He takes a HUGE divot......and the ball bounces several times......all of 20 yds forward.
    What a piece of sh*t shot !
    One of the guys yells over to him ( and in a serious, sympathetic tone ) says "Aww.....you rushed it ! "
    ***** I couldn't stop laughing for the next three holes !******

    One of the caddies - was going to court to get disability.
    Alot of the caddies were "street" guys - all with their own little scams + addictions.
    He told us "My lawyer said for me to grow my hair out + grow a beard......better disheveled appearance
    before the judge, to help get my disability.
    Some of us asked "Why don't you just get a job ?"
    Anyway -
    This dishevelled looking caddy was standing in the caddy yard with a sand trap rake propped up against him.
    He was holding it like a staff ( on the ground - straight up + down ).
    Two members on a cart buzz by him --
    One of the members does a double take - swings his head around - and says -
    "Who the hell are you ?......Moses ?"
    The entire caddy yard busted up laughing.......and you guessed it --
    the caddy's nickname became "Moses" - from that moment forward.
    *
    ( his previous nickname was "Tin Man" cos he walked, while hauling golf bags, like the TinMan from
    Wizard Of Oz. )
    *
    Thought i'd share.....
    Anybody else with a golf story ?

    All my caddie stories involve them laughing about my so-called golf swing.

    Most of my family plays golf. I can barely Putt Putt myself and I've lived in Golf Course Communities most my life but don't even belong to the club.
    As kids both my brother and I worked on a golf course as a Green's Keepers Assistants.This was a retirement golf course in Clearwater so pretty
    much when you watch the movie Caddy Shack and the old person ricochets a ball off a tree... that happened quite a few times. Once we were in the
    truck driving to the back nine when my brother slams on the brakes and pushes me back into the seat. At that moment a ball went flying through
    my window and out the drivers side window. I could tell you more stories... Like the time my Grand Dad took Ex-Lax before a golf game and my poor
    cousin got stuck having to wipe his butt behind a tree... But I won't! haha!
