    Golf season started for me today. I've been to the range a couple of times but today was my first full round of the year. The courses are still comming out of hiberbnation but the green fees are cheap so its a pretty far trade off.

    I'm going to try to post pictures this year of some of my favorite holes from around Michigan.

    I'm in mid-season form


    Right, Left, Right, Left

    I call that military golf. :lol: When I play, it's usually a great way to ruin a nice walk. :icon_sad:

    Haven't played in quite awhile. The guy who got me started some years ago is a former co-worker, retired Air Force. His last 8 or 9 years he was stationed in Hawaii. His job was to entertain the visiting brass, i.e. play golf with them. Al shoots in the low to mid 70's.

    Anyway, he & some buddies made their annual trip to Pinehurst one year & decided that they'd get caddies for a change of pace. Al said that they got to one of the par 4's where he hit a big drive right down the middle of the fairway. He & the caddie walked up to the ball & Al asked him what the pros would hit from there. Without missing a beat, the caddie replied "They wouldn't. They'd be hitting from 50 or 60 yards further up." :icon_eek:

    So much for his tip. :lol:

    Well, whaddaya know.........another stereotype bites the dust. I always thought golf was a game played only by rich people in bad clothes. I'm glad there's actually people I know and like who play---even though I'd still rather watch cars rust than sit through a match on TV. Have fun, y'all!

    Rules: Open game, read trivia question, click on the answer .

    If you select a wrong answer, the ball moves
    only so far down the fairway and stops; and
    you are charged with one stroke. Keep
    selecting the answers that you think are
    correct and the ball moves down the fairway.

    If you have the correct answer right away,
    the ball goes directly in the hole.

    Bob, Bill, & Steve meet up early one morning for a round of golf. They all tee off as right-handers, progress through their round, and have a great time. They agree to meet again the next morning to play again, same time, same place. Steve says "I'll be here, but I could be 5 minutes late."

    The next day they meet & all tee off again, but this time Steve plays from the left. Again, they have a great time & decide to do it again the next morning, same time, same place. Steve agrees, but once again mentions that he might be 5 minutes late.

    The next morning comes. When Steve addresses the ball, he's back on the right again. Bill stops him.

    "So what's up with the changes, Steve? First you play right-handed, then left, then back to the right. What gives?"

    "Well," Steve answers, "When I wake up in the morning, if my wife is sleeping on her right side, I play right-handed. If she's sleeping on her left side, I play left-handed."

    "What if she's sleeping on her stomach?", asks Bob.

    "Then I'm 5 minutes late." :icon_eek:

    Out on the golf course with his wife, the husband says,
    "Twenty years ago I had a brief affair. It meant nothing.
    I hope you can forgive me."

    His wife was hurt but said, "Dearest, those days are long
    gone. What we have now is far more valuable. I forgive
    you." They embraced and kissed.

    On the seventeenth tee, the husband was starting his back
    swing when the wife blurted out, "I'm sorry darling, I've
    been so conscience-stricken since you told me, but since
    we're being honest with each other, I have something to
    tell you also. Fifty-two years ago I had a sex change
    operation. I was a man before I met you. I hope you can
    forgive me."

    The husband, froze at the top of his back swing, then threw
    a fit! He slammed the driver into the ground, kicked the
    ball into the woods, stormed off the tee, pushed the golf
    cart over on its side, broke the rest of his clubs one by
    one, then started on hers.

    He screamed and ranted, "You liar! You cheat! You despicable
    deceiver! How could you? I trusted you with all my heart
    and soul...and all these years you've been playing off the
    ladies' tees!"
