How Golfers Think Vs. Normal People

As golfers we think differently to the rest of the human population.

Here are some situations where this is most apparent...

In 100 MPH winds


Normal person - Better stay in

Golfer - How far could I hit a ball with the wind behind?

When the Sat Nav says Turn left in 150 yards

Normal person - Keep an eye out on the left for this turning

Golfer - Turn left after a 7-iron

Whilst watching football

Normal person - God I’d love to be a millionaire footballer and have money, talent and girls

Golfer - God I’d love to hit some wedges off that grass

When stood waiting for a bus/train/fish and chips

Normal person - Stand still with headphones in

Golfer - Do a practise swing looking at hands and invisible club position on way back

When looking out of plane window

Normal person - Look how small the cars are

Golfer - Look at that golf course… and that one. Quite a few bunkers.

On Sunday morning

Normal person - Lie in and suffer hangover

Golfer - Battle hangover, get up at 7am to beat the crowds and struggle round a golf course

On Monday morning

Normal person - How much money did I spend this weekend?

Golfer - How many putts did I miss this weekend and what could I have shot?

When buying a car

Normal person - Is it big enough for the kids?

Golfer - Is it big enough to fit my golf clubs in?

When buying a house

Normal person - What are the local schools like?

Golfer - What are the local golf courses like?

What we look forward to in winter

Normal person - The clocks going forward

Golfer - The Masters

And when we know winter is over

Normal person - Attempting a BBQ after work

Golfer - Smugly taking the waterproofs out of the golf bag before a game
