Club golfer stereotypes – No 1: The spongerJuly, 2015 The Scoop
Meet the people who make up the membership of your club
A sorry individual, will arrive on the 1st tee minus anything that is actually needed for the next four hours.
Usually it will begin with tees – ‘have you got a long one?’ – and soon move on to balls.
Will then have the cheek to turn his nose up at what you offer him and always fails to return whatever is lent.
Your new driver will get a run-out in his capable hands before working his way through your bag, giving his astute thoughts on the set-up, torque and grip thickness.
Knows what he is doing, it’s not forgetfulness, he’s a tight arse who thinks this is all acceptable.
Will finally linger just long enough in the locker room to avoid putting any drinks on his card.
Do yourself a favour and give him a swerve on next week’s start sheet and let him cast a shadow over someone else’s fourball.
