Basic Rules of Golf Etiquette – Planet Golf

Let single players join you.

As a newbie, this was one of the first rules of etiquette that I ignored and made me look like a douche.

I played with 2 other guys, being a threesome most of the time. So the
staff that schedules the tee offs sometimes gives the same start time to
single players in order to complete a foursome and optimize the
course’s schedule.

Well, we were not aware of that. And us being
all lousy newbies we were not comfortable playing with strangers
worrying that they may get bored with our level of play or even hold
them up from their regular game pace, so we just took off after we drove
our shots leaving the single guy behind.

Until one day, a dude
after racing his butt to catch up with us on the 3rd hole, he said in a
afflicted but bothered tone: “Hey what the heck man? Why won’t you let
me play with you guys?” (hehe it’s funny now that I think about it, but
also shameful) after we explained our newbie reasons, we learned that no
matter the level of play, when the course is packed with people the
staff exhorts single players to join odd number parties. And that’s the
rule, which I later embraced. Joining perfect strangers is a good way to
meet interesting people playing golf.

The reason was very simple, Number 2 son, Kirk, had pulled it off the shelf here in the movie room and asked if I wanted to join him. I didn’t hesitate for a second and pulled up a big old piece of floor and sat down with Brando the Weiner Dog by my side.

Alongside Dennehy is another actor who I never paid much attention to growing up despite his numerous film and television roles, James Woods. Once the mid 80’s approached that changed. I felt as though he really hit his stride and probably did his best work collectively during his run of film’s from about 1982 through to the…
