Golf is a long, long game. Without any wait in between holes, on a cart, its still on an average about 4 and a half hours. That's a long fucking time to just talk about what club to use, what percent power swing to use, or if you can get your ball out of the rough, lake, or where ever the fuck you shanked it. Here's my list, in no particular order.
1: Discussing Politics
This is especially true with the election coming up in November, but this one is tried and true on the links. This year either talking shit about the new crazy shit DT has done this week, or find out who your playing with is a crazy person when they start ranting about Hillary's emails. Both are fun in different ways: Trump is a fucking lunatic whose fun to shit on, and you can eviscerate the pro trump guy with facts and destroy him as a person because, lets face it, your not gonna wanna continue to interact with them in the future. Also included in this is the economy: on the golf course, everyone somehow knows everything about the economy, all the reasons shit goes wrong, and how they could fix it.
2: Talk Fantasy Football
This has been the best way for men to continue friendships since the strip club. When you have shit else to talk about with your friends, football comes around and you can just talk shit about destroying your buddy in your league last week. This is an easy go to when you have almost 5 hours to kill.
This is less applicable for most young folks, unless your going maybe 5 a hole, but betting on a Golf course just like anything in life, makes shit more worthwhile. When it gets to the point when your going 50, 75, even 100 a hole shit gets real. There is no way possible to get bored at 100 a hole.
4: Selling your product/idea or get an investment
The classic notion for making a sale is to have an electric elevator pitch, a pitch that can sell someone on the company/product in 45 seconds. Try having 4 hours to get through to someone and you have 0 excuse for not making the sale. Awesome way of tricking someone into listening to your shit.
This one is pretty self explanatory, but this might clear #1 as the best and most necessary aspect of a day of Golf. If you crush a six pack on the front 9, I guarantee you the back 9 will be a shit ton more fun, even if it raises your handicap a couple of strokes. If your not drinking and golfing, your doing it wrong.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
