    Some people actually believe that the word "golf" originated as an acronym for "gentlemen only, ladies forbidden"...
    I don't know about that, but I enjoyed the following...

    This is said to be an actual sign posted at a golf club in Scottsdale, Arizona:


    1. BACK STRAIGHT, KNEES BENT, FEET SHOULDER WIDTH APART.

    2. FORM A LOOSE GRIP.

    3. KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN!

    4. AVOID A QUICK BACK SWING.

    5. STAY OUT OF THE WATER.

    6. TRY NOT TO HIT ANYONE.

    7. IF YOU ARE TAKING TOO LONG, LET OTHERS GO AHEAD OF YOU.

    8. DON'T STAND DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF OTHERS.

    9. QUIET PLEASE...WHILE OTHERS ARE PREPARING.

    10. DON'T TAKE EXTRA STROKES.

    WELL DONE. NOW FLUSH THE URINAL, GO OUTSIDE, & TEE OFF

    2(a): If you have a short driver, stand close.

    I often find my balls in the brush, but my wood play is good enough that I don't give up strokes.

    I also wash my balls after each hole.

    Cleanliness is next to Godliness after all, Pecker. My hygiene isn't nearly as good as yours: I wash them only after they've been in the hole.

    commendable, indeed! :rolleyes: though I can't imagine you can expect to score again unless your club is clean as well :cool:
