18 Things Only a Golfer Would Understand

Was the highlight of your trip to Las Vegas playing the course at the Wynn? Did you (secretly) help plan your honeymoon based on an article you read about the best destination golf courses? Does your newborn daughter have a teeny tiny set of golf clubs? If so, you just might be an avid golfer.

You’re the target of 5 AM eye-rolls when your alarm goes off and you jump out of bed for your 6 AM tee time… on a Sunday, and last weekend you completely wore out the rewind button on your remote control while watching the slow-motion replay of your favorite golfer’s swing.

It’s ok… we get it.

These are things that only someone who loves (and sometimes hates) golf would understand, and we want you to know… you’re not alone!

  1. It’s never too early to start loving golf


  2. It’s never too cold to golf


  3. Vehicle purchasing decisions are made based on whether or not it fits your gear
