Is it OK to cheat playing a friendly golf game?
Is it really "the worst thing you can do" and that is is an "unforgivable sin" to do it? We look at other people for a gauge for what is acceptable, if one person cheats in an egregious way does everybody start cheating and therefore 'ok'? Is a culture of cheating now part of the game?
Really a cool question friend. I played with my son and big sister the other day. Fun playing at 7,000 feet - the ball goes forever. The question came up at around the 12th; Is not keeping score illegal? Our winner of each hole would do a Jiggy dance pump our fist in the air and brag. Of course the same for a great putt or in my case the longest ball.
Most of the time on out of bounds the focus was on keeping the game going rather than etiquette or rules. I think we all took a Mulligan per 9 and one bonus.
Holding up the game as my son flirted and got a date with the beer cart girl was allowed as we let a "play through". A hearty rain on the 16th, and someone was not smoking tobacco in the anti-lightening spot.
My son and I were all wrinkled shirts and we saw one guy without on and another with a T-shirt. Music blared from our carts.
Well I reckon cheating was the least of our worries ;-)
Great story. I'm glad you had fun. Mulligans I don't consider a 'cheat'.I was thinking more of dunking a ball into a water trap and the your caddy "found it". So technically the golfer isn't cheating - you caddy does it for you as a suck ass.
I hear you there - $100 changes your talent ;-)

How do you stop yourself from cheating on your spouse/partner?It's really sad that many couples separate because of a cheating partner. There are faithful people and there are those that are not. What suggestions can you give so that one can avoid cheating on their spouse/partner.

What is your opinion on cheating? Is it right or wrong to tell someone you've cheated on them?I'm watching Dr.Drew's Life Changers and it is a very interesting question.
