THE HARD­EST QUES­TIONS IN GOLF ARE THE ONES THAT NEVER SEEM TO GET ASKED. Take that cigar-chomp­ing first-tee starter with a wad of cash in his pocket. You’re won­der­ing, Is he as up for a bribe as he looks? If so, how do I so­licit a magic-car­pet ride to the first tee? An­other one: When your op­po­nent hits a hosel rocket into the trees, are you ob­li­gated to ex­press sym­pa­thy, or can you obey your first in­stinct and just laugh? Here are 25 is­sues you might have pon­dered but haven’t quite had the temer­ity to query your friends about. You won’t find the ad­vice we’ve as­sem­bled here in any golf eti­quette guide, but it’ll make you more fun to play and hang with. And the starter you greased won’t be of­fended, ei­ther.

In­side, you’re burning with frus­tra­tion, de­spair and self-loathing. On the out­side – the only side that mat­ters in a so­cial set­ting – your friends should see a per­son blessed with in­hu­man pa­tience, dogged per­sis­tence and self­dep­re­cat­ing hu­mour.
