$5 million for John Rahm!

More crazy money but I guess these top golfing stars warrant a fair share of the pot that is generated from such events.

And it needs to be remembered that only a few are in the huge money bracket, many of the other tour professionals eek out a living travelling economy and sharing hotel rooms with their peers.

It’s only glamorous  and lucrative at the top.at the top! Here is the top 50 for 2019:

This is why I mow my own lawn.

Lee Trevino:

Why I Mow My Own Yard

(A true story; you got to love him.) 

 

One day, shortly after joining the PGA tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a  professional 
golfer and married man, was at his home in Dallas, Texas, mowing his front lawn, as he always did. 

A lady driving by in a big, shiny Cadillac stopped in front of his house, lowered the window and asked, “Excuse me, do you speak English?”   

Lee responded,  “Yes Ma’am, I do.”   

The lady then asked, “What do you charge to do yard work?”  

Lee said, “Well, the woman in this house lets me sleep with her.”  

The lady hurriedly put the car into gear and sped off.

More golf funnies!

Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.

Golf – You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins, on top of that, the winner buys the drinks.

Golf is harder than baseball. In Golf, you have to play your foul balls.

If you find you do not mind playing Golf in the rain, the snow, even during a hurricane, here’s a valuable tip …your life is in trouble.

Golfers who try to make everything perfect before taking the shot rarely make a perfect shot.

A ‘gimme‘ can best be defined as an agreement between two golfers …neither of whom can putt very well.

An interesting thing about Golf is that no matter how badly you play, it is always possible to get worse.

Golf‘s a hard game to figure. One day you’ll go out and slice it and shank it, hit into all the traps and miss every green. The next day you go out and for no reason at all you really stink.

If your best shots are the practice swing and the ‘gimme putt’, you might wish to reconsider this game.

Golf is the only sport where the most feared opponent is you.

Golf is like marriage, if you take yourself too seriously it won’t work, and both are expensive.

The best wood in most amateurs’ bags is the pencil.

 Why Golf Is Better Than Sex…

#10… A below par performance is considered damn good.

#09… You can stop in the middle and have a cheeseburger and a couple of beers.
#08… It’s much easier to find the sweet spot.
#07… Foursomes are encouraged.
#06… You can still make money doing it as a senior.
#05… Three times a day is possible.
#04… Your partner doesn’t hire a lawyer if you play with someone else.
#03… If you live in Florida , you can do it almost every day.
#02… You don’t have to cuddle with your partner when you’re finished.
And the NUMBER ONE reason why golf is better than sex…..
#01… When your equipment gets old you can replace it.
