I am currently reading a book Too Many Clubs Not Enough Balls. Its a comedy about a man who takes up golf and joins his first club.

One bit particularly struck a cord when he was advised that you wont improve without a good excuse whether its as simple as the wind changed on me, im not used to this type of ball to the more extreme of i can't get used to these calm conditions, i play my best stuff in a gale.

So whats the worst excuse you have used and the best you have heard for a bad shot or round..

We have a rule that all excuses have to be aired in the car park, anything after that point is inadmissible.

Doesn't work for Mac then. You'd have to include the bus stop.

One guy I played with once (single figure) hit a shot off one tee which was basically topped straight along the ground into the rough and his immediate comment was "there must be something wrong with that ball - I hit that perfectly!" And he was being serious. I just cracked up.

Mate once carved one out of town and claimed distraction by a passing cloud.

"Wasn't expecting fescue grass" - not me but it is now the default excuse among some of my pals!

I remember Monty going mental at some spectators moving when I was standing on the tee watching him at the French Open. They were 300 yards up the fairway.
