    Golfing "Bon mots"

    Has anyone a particular favourite or heard a new one? Please try and keep it to one per post to widen the net.

    One I heard recently which did give me a chuckle was when I asked a member in the car park how he played.

    "I had more hits than The Beatles out there!" he replied.


    It might be old but I'd never heard it before
    I used to have a signature until it became unfashionable.

    The rather more tasteful alternative to this (or the Liz McColgan/Sonia O'Sullivan for other areas of UK) somewhat derogatory/unkind comment is.....

    I have a friend who uses one that I fear would invite an immediate lifetime ban from the Forum and could only be repeated at a meet.
