How to win at Golf
How to win at Golf: I’ve seen some of the most egregious rule breaches on the course, as well as how players manipulate official handicaps. The following is a rundown of the most effective cheating strategies for golf.
1. on the course improves the lie or location of your golf ball on the course. A little foot kick or a quick flick of a golf iron is the best way to achieve this. Because your playing companions may witness your activities, you should never really pick up the ball and flip it. Here’s another excellent idea. Keep a second golf ball (with a tiny hole) in your pocket so you can slip it down your trouser leg without being seen, but make sure the second ball has the same brand and markings as the first in case the other golfers see what ball you’re using from the tee.
2. Pay a caddy to go ahead of the rest of the group to your ball position and utilize one of the aforementioned methods. In a match, request that your opponent’s ball be placed in a tough lie by the caddy.
3. For a “gimme,” be liberal with the distance to the hole on the putting green. Utilize a putter with a longer shaft or one with a considerably shorter grip if the local custom is to use the putter grip for an “in the leather” rule for a “gimme.”
4. If a shrub blocks your swing angle, use your body or ask your caddy to pull back the branches so you may swing freely. Better better, have a metal clipper in your luggage to quickly cut the branch.
5. If your golf ball falls in lengthy rough, continuously walk on the grass or weeds until you have a clear path to hit the golf ball. If your golf shoes contain spikes, dig a clean path with the bottom of the golf shoe for a greater effect.
6. Make liberal use of mulligans. Justify striking a second ball by blaming a distraction or other shocks on a playing partner or caddy… an abrupt wind shift, a sudden vehicle horn, an overhead aircraft, a bird or animal sound, etc. Be inventive.
7. If you knock your ball out of bounds, never accept a two-shot penalty…
The club’s owner is to fault for not purchasing enough property when the course was built because he was too cheap. Drop your golf ball near the place where it flew over the OB stake without incurring a penalty.
8. Never tell your playing companions what brand of golf ball you’re using or mark your golf ball. If you can’t locate your own ball in the rough but come across one that has been abandoned, use it as your shot.
9. When marking your golf ball on the green, move the mark an inch forward beneath the ball; when replacing the ball, hover your palm over it and place it at least 2 inches ahead of the mark.
10. Create a diversion by tapping the golf ball a few inches closer to the hole on the green at the same time.
11. Never play the shot if anybody can see the ball while playing out of a sand bunker…
To aid your concentration, you should be allowed to touch the sand behind the ball without incurring a penalty.
12. Place your golf ball at least a yard in front of the tee markers while teeing off.
1. Demand to be the group’s scorekeeper, and report a few lower points than you really received. The final scorecard may never be audited by your playing partners.
2. Simply lie about your stated score if another player is scoring. Only a small percentage of gamers will ever dispute your count.
3. Inform your playing companions that you’re using an app to keep track of your score or that you have an excellent memory and can remember your score on every hole.
4. Distract the scorekeeper at the end of the round, grab the scorecard, and quickly destroy it, even if the scorekeeper has been concentrated on accurately recording every player’s score hole by hole. You may simply cheat about your score on a few holes when the scorekeeper tries to rebuild individual scores over 18 holes… For four players, no one can possibly recall every shot.
Keeping track of scores in preparation for handicapping
1. The majority of regular golfers have a handicap that they utilize to modify their scores for competition. Telling your opponents you don’t keep a handicap is the simplest method to cheat. Then you may make up a large number.
2. When recording your score, add a few strokes if you have an official handicap.
3. If someone confronts you about not recording scores in the handicap system, just say you forgot; if they see an inflated score posted, blame the pro shop for entering your score incorrectly; or you put in an erroneous score due to your big fingers or anxiety while using a laptop. Explain that you’ve been diagnosed with dementia if you’re looking for an explanation.
4. Enter your inflated score into the handicap system to match the easiest tee rather than the one you really played. This may easily increase your official handicap by two or three shots.
5. Include inflated scores from other courses, whether or not you played them. No one can possibly follow you around outside of your usual club to see where and when you play.
6. The official scoring regulation now restricts your maximum score on a hole to two strokes over the hole’s course handicap. Ignore this guideline if you want to boost your official score.
7. Play alone yourself and get horrible results. In the game of golf, there are hundreds of formal regulations. One common justification for cheating is that you haven’t had time to read the rules book.
