My playing partner is getting older and I think he has early signs of dementia! He is the only guy I know who can lose his putter and a sand wedge in the middle of a fairway! Not next to the green, but in the middle of a fairway. He recently finished a round and only had a four-iron and a hybrid left in his bag. What should I do? … Signed Concerned.
I would recommend that you start doubling your bets on the back nine! … MM
I recently went on a golf trip to Myrtle Beach with my friends. Much to my dismay, my golf clubs were stolen somewhere between Los Angeles & South Carolina. It was downright heart-wrenching! This ever happened to you? Signed … Clubless in Myrtle
There is a reason why golf clubs are the number one piece of luggage stolen from airports. They are conspicious — they look like golf clubs and only golf clubs — and even the dumbest of thieves knows that each one of those oversized bags contain approximately $1,500 worth of golf gear. Every time I ship my clubs, I ship them with an exploding dye package, similiar to what they slip into money bags of bank robbers. You can buy them on eBay. While it may not actually stop the dumb ass from stealing my clubs, there is some satisfaction knowing that they are going to look like a smurf for a week or two. … MM …
Mr. Mulligan Man,
I heard somewhere that a golfer can commit a “fashion-fopa” if they wear more than two golf apparel logos at any given time. What is your official ruling? … Signed Logo Conscious.
Good question, and in fact, this is the first time any of my advice seekers has used the words “fashion-fopa.” (and hopefully the last.) And for the first time ever, the Mulligan Man might not be able to lend any credible golf advice on a topic. Why? The last time I teed it up, I was wearing Nike Golf Shoes, FootJoy socks, Addias golf pants, an Under Armour shirt, a Cutter-Buck windshirt, Maui Jim Sunglasses and a Titliest hat. And let’s not forget that I was also sporting a Top-Flite golf glove and a Tag Heuer watch, before I hit my Callaway HX golf ball with my Cobra driver. CASE CLOSED! … MM
Why is it every time I go to the Roger Dunn Super Store, I can pick any new putter at random and drain every putt I attempt. Three-footers, ten-footers, 30-footers. one-handers, behind the back, both eyes closed — and they all end up CENTER-CUT DRANO! Then I make the big purchase, bring it to the course, and can’t knock in a gimme? … Signed No-Drain-O!
While most golf courses are designed with shotmaking and a stimpometer in mind, golf superstores are interested really in only one thing – SALES! Nobody is going to drop a Ben Franklin on a new putter if it doesn’t work in the store. I don’t want to insinuate anything and say the floor slopes towards the hole, but the other day I dropped my wallet while checking out and it ended up in the hole 50-feet away. … MM
Mr. Mulligan Man,
Who is liable for my injuries should I happen to flip a golf cart at my local golf course? … Signed Legal Beagle
That’s a strange question to ask! If I didn’t know better, I thinking you’re planning a premeditated golf car accident for personal gain? Seriously? Is your life so bad that you even have to consider doing something that stupid? Bottom line, you are liable for your own premeditated injuries. MORON! … MM
