Best caddy quotes to keep you smiling in dire times
Swinging a golf club in the back garden during the intelligent lockdown created by the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 can become rather tedious after a few weeks. After six weeks, even the most thrilling of past Open Championships screened on television in a bid to entertain golfers and keep us sane in these unprecedented times, begin to lose their charm. Naturally, we all want to get out there in this glorious Spring sunshine and play. However, safe-distancing measures are still in force as countries struggle to contain the highly-contagious COVID-19 virus. And so, quite rightly, golf courses remain closed for the time being.
A few days ago, I overheard someone talking about courses possibly reopening in phases for their own members. First the low handicap players from 0-12 handicap would be allowed to play and then eventually the higher handicappers. It was a joke, of course, but it caused the indignant, nostril-flaring reaction that the first team player had hoped for from his fellow golfer whose dream is still to break 100!
Patience and a healthy dose of Great British humour will help get us through this crisis. Now that reminds me of these wonderful caddy quotes. Enjoy!
