No Luck in Golf!

The universal rules of golf - where no matter what you do on the course, the bad will always be followed by the worse.

Here are 16 hilarious laws that you can probably relate to if you're a golfer.Golf Drive

  1. Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.
  2. When you look up and cause an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.
  3. Any change works for a maximum of three holes and a minimum of not at all.
  4. When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.
  5. If you’re afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up, or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
  6. The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing.
  7. If it ain’t broke, try changing your grip.
  8. It’s not a gimme if it's still your putt.
  9. It’s surprisingly easy to hole a 50-foot putt when you've already had 10.
  10. You can hit a 2-acre fairway 10% of the time, and a 2-inch branch 90% of the time.
  11. Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe.
  12. Hazards attract. Fairways repel.
  13. A ball you can see in the rough from 50 yards away is not yours.
  14. If there is a ball in the fringe and a ball in the bunker, your ball is the one in the bunker.
  15. If both balls are in the bunker, your's is in the footprint.
  16. Don’t buy a putter until you’ve had a chance to throw it.
