150 Hilarious Excuses Every Golf Player Should Know

About The Book

Explain away your bad shots—and have your friends laugh at the same time!

In Golf's Best Excuses, author Joshua Shifrin takes a witty approach in helping golfers make sense of their worst days on the golf course. The next time a player goes down in defeat, he or she can always explain the woeful round with “My golf clubs are too old.” Or after a bad putt, golfers might try to explain the mishap with, “There were too many spike marks on the green.”

Shifrin has crafted 150 funny—but all-too-real—excuses for pros and amateurs alike. Examples include:

  • I’m late for my wedding and it’s throwing off my concentration.
  • I thought this hole was a dogleg to the left . . . not right.
  • If I didn’t have those four double bogeys I could have scored really well today.
  • Someone yelled “fore” during my backswing.
  • Any many more!
Whether you want to motivate the duffer in your life or laugh away embarrassing mistakes in your own game, Golf's Best Excuses is a must-read. Complete with laugh-out-loud full-color cartoons, this book makes for the perfect gift.
