Excuses For Bad Golf

Written by Motts on May 20 2024

Long time reader, Brad, has just published a book and it looks so good, we thought the community might be interested in it. Take it away, Brad…

I’ve been playing golf since I was 9 or 10. It started with walking around the golf course with my dad and his mates. Once we were out of sight of the pro shop, I was allowed to drop a golf ball, and start practicing the great game of golf. As I got older, I got better and better and probably would have turned professional, if it weren’t for one thing. I wasn’t very good.

Like many other golfers out there, not everything goes to plan. You have to remember that golf is a game of centimetres, sometimes even millimetres. To get a perfect shot, a lot of things need to go right. And even when you do do everything in your power correctly, you can’t control the wind, the bounce of the ball or why they put a bunker right there.

This is how one reviewer described it:

“In this uproarious gift book, author Brad H brings you a treasure trove of laugh-out-loud excuses guaranteed to make even the most disastrous golf shots seem like strokes of genius. From blaming your slice on alien interference to trees playing defence, this book offers a hilarious escape from the reality of your golfing woes.”

If you’re interested in buying a copy for yourself or as a gift, head along to your local Amazon store and search for “Excuses for Bad Golf” – for Every Day of the Year + Bonuses! I personally recommend you buy 2 or 3 so you have them ready for gifts.

Don’t forget that by giving this book to someone, you’re underhandedly saying that they actually need this book, because they’re not so good at golf! And if you can’t insult a loved one when you’re buying them a present, maybe you’re doing it wrong.

  1. Big thanks Motts and GD for allowing me to post!

    There is a special promotion about to start, the Kindle eBook version will be free until Friday. You don’t need a Kindle to read it, any device will be able to read it. So take advantage of this great offer!


  2. Gidday Guys, something you may get a laugh from. Playing off 33 seems to give everybody the right to offer advice. Last week I was told that if I improved my driving, irons and putting my golf would really improve. Still not sure if he was serious or just joking.
    Will be buying the book.


    1. I think you should take the positives out of this. Obviously you’re setting your tees at the right height, drinking the correct amount of water and not running over anyone’s feet with your buggy!


  3. Everything about my golf game is perfect……well, 99.9% is. It’s just that nano second when club contacts ball that is holding me back.


    1. I once played Eynesbury on a day called “Greenkeeper’s Revenge”. On every single hole, the pins had been placed in exactly the worst position. Right by the edge with a severe drop-off? Perfect. Half way up a slope so you couldn’t get near it if you tried? That’s what I’m talking about. At the back of greens at the top of slopes, or even better with a slope either side? Oh yeah, baby. It was absolutely brutal. And that was playing as a 4-ball ambrose.
