I went golfing the other day and man have my skills gone downhill
I used to be a good golfer when I was a kid but only playing once every year or so eroded my swing.

3. He was trying to give me tips on my game the next day
He also offered to give me his brand new set of clubs he's never used on the stipulation that I return them should he want to play some day. I declined.

4. The blue tees.
I was thinking about playing the black tees but I knew I would suck so why make it longer and harder.

12. It was fantastic
Speeding down a steep hill when I cut the wheel. Buddy went flying down to the bottom of the hill as I remained stuck for a few tumbles. The cart rolled down the rest of the hill without me and landed on top of him with the hot engine still running. I was out cold but his shrieking woke me up and I ran down to help him. I was ssshing him because I didn't want to get in trouble as smoke was billowing up from his stomach.

9. This was shocking for me
Yes I only play once a year if I'm lucky but I've never been this bad. I'm normally just relatively bad. :(

10. About 4 hours but most of that was because of the douchebags in front of me
They invited me to play ahead of them on my 3 lost ball hole. I actually drove off to the next tee after the 3rd straight ball went into the water.
