1. You buy at least 3 golf magazines a month. 2. You have taken a sickie from work to play golf. 3. Every present you get is golf related, yes your loved ones know about your obsession. 4. When you are playing golf you are already thinking about your next round, where, who with and for how much. 5. When you drive past a nice open field you think to yourself, "That would make a nice golf hole". 6. Anyone kissed their putter? 7. You know you can shoot 60 on your home course, your just waiting for everything to click on that special day.

8). When you are faced with "golf course or intercourse" you choose the former.

10. You still have the 2009 aussie masters on IQ or hard drive. 11. All you have on the IQ is golf and your better half can't record her crap. 12. Even after hitting every fairway and green and have 27 putts you get on the net to buy another club when you get home.

“The difference in golf and government is that in golf you cannot improve your lie.”

Reminds me of the time my wife came into the bedroom dressed in next to nothing, and threw a velvet rope on my chest and said, "Tie me up and you can do anything you want", So I tied her up quick as and took off out the bedroom door, only to hear her yell, "What are you going to do?", And I replied, "I'm going to play golf".

My 10

1 the weather could be pissing rain sideways and you still think its fine for golf – crap for everything else but fine for golf

2 You scour ebay everyday looking for bargains and more crap that you think will be the magical club to go in your bag that will catapault you to a 3 handicap – yet in reality will end up ISG classifieds in 4 days! or LESS

3 when speaking with folks about non golf stuff you use terms like – he will struggle to make par from that mess (like a messy desk)

4 You study Bobby Lockes putting style via the internet thinking hey this might work for me.

5 You must have owned ateast 20 putters in your life, if you havent I’m sorry youre don’t qualify

6 You take more time choosing an oufit for saturdays stableford comp than you do for going out with your’e missus

7 You remember your’e best score – how many putts you had, hell you remember what you said as you drained the last putt but YOU can’t remember to pick up the milk and bread on the way home despite 2 text text messages to remind you to do so!

8 When you go on holidays you’re wife is looking at the local tourist sites, cafe’s and youre googling to see if there is a golf course close by – EVEN if you don’t have clubs

9 You will happily pick up an old scuffed up hot dot or DDH and throw it in your bag should you find one in the bush – and value it the same as a brand new shiny Titleist Pro V1x

10 Your forget things all the time during the week – BUT you know youre tee time for Saturday

Its interesting I now work with people with addictions and I can see how I’m addicted to golf, infact most poeople are addicted to something – ours just happens to be golf.

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill

I agree 100% with all of this. This is the only time I iron my clothes. I dont even iron my work clothes.
