The Answer To Your Love/Hate Golf Game is written on your ball.
For anyone that has ever held a golf club in their hands and dreamed of success on the course akin to Tiger Woods, Phil Mikelson, Arnold Palmer or some other legendary player, take hope. No, I’m not offering golf tips that will take your game to the top ranks of the PGA. And, no I don’t have some great new invention to correct your stroke. And I certainly don’t have a new type of golf club that will perfectly get the ball into the cup.
What I do have, thanks to the crazy folks at thecheeky.com is a golf ball that will give you a lift through the dark days of golf where you can’t get the ball in the hole and are blaming everyone and anything for your inability to shoot anywhere near par.
It’s called the Self-Deprecating Golf Ball and it tells you what you won’t admit to yourself – you aren’t a very good golfer. Imprinted on the balls – in a set of three – are slogans including, “we both know that shot was my fault” and “I’m sorry, it’s not you, it’s me,” and finally “I know. I’m the worst Callaway ever.” You can have these “tell-you-off” balls for a mere $25 for the set.
Golfers As Masochists?
Now, why would anyone want their golf balls to give them a message about how badly they golf? Well, if you are a golfer – good or bad – you know it’s a very humbling game. To play it you have to have some sense of masochism. For the number of times the golf game will drive you crazy for one reason or another, only a mad person would continue to play the game before giving it up for pet-sitting a great white shark. Yet, day after day, week after week, and year after year golfers are out there trying to perfect a game that defies perfection – unless of course your PGA winnings total millions of dollars a year win or lose.
So, for those of you who find hitting that little white ball some form of therapy, these imprinted balls might make a great present – for yourself, a friend, partner or spouse. If they don’t chase after you with their golf club, consider it the perfect gift.
