Just for Laughs

PUT PUTT GOLF

A little girl was at her first golf lesson when she asked an interesting question...

Q: "Is the word spelled P-U-T or P-U-T-T?" She asked her instructor.

A: "P-U-T-T is correct," the instructor replied.

"P-U-T means to place a thing where you want it. "P-U-T-T means merely a futile attempt to do the same thing."

Pace of play:

• Keep up with the group in front - if you lose sight of them, increase your pace of play;
• Keep an eye on the group behind - if they are always waiting, increase your pace of play;
• Check the score card for the estimated tee time for each hole to see if you are on time or not;
• Limit practice swings and time taken for each shot. (none of us are on the PGA circuit!!)
• Watch where your ball goes and pick a landmark to help locate it;
• Ask someone else to watch your shot if you are unsure where it may go;
• Play a provisional ball if you are AT ALL unsure if you will locate the ball;
• Look for and find a ball within 5 minutes - no more!
• Start walking towards your ball once you have hit it (if prudent to do so);
• Move to next tee block once you have holed out - don't wait for all other players to hole out;
• Tee off before marking score card;
• Walk purposefully.
• If you are having major difficulties, let the group behind play through.
