Pinehurst Madness – The Final Round

FinalRound2040215 (1200x762)

Even at the start, we kind of knew this is where we would end up, isn’t it?

We took Pinehurst No. 2 out of the equation, and were left with a perfect 8-course tournament bracket. And the cream rose to the top. We are left with top-seeded Pinehurst No. 4 vs. No. 2-seed Pinehurst No. 8 in the battle to crown the (second) best course at Pinehurst Resort.

It’s time for you to determine The Final Round.

NOTE: Vote by clicking on the course of your choice. Votes are tallied automatically.

No. 1 seed Pinehurst No. 4 vs. No. 2 seed Pinehurst No. 8

Most agree Tom Fazio elevated a good course to a great one with his work on No. 4. Indeed, it was selected as the co-site of the 2008 U.S. Amateur. Some feel that No. 8 synthesizes all the elements of the Pinehurst golf experience into one layout better than any of the other courses, and many mid- and higher-handicappers find it the most enjoyable track to play.

The best caddie jokes in golf

CaddieCap2

As long as there has been golf, there has been the quipping caddie, cracking the one-liners shot at their three-jack, shanking day-employers, otherwise known as the hacking golfer. At Pinehurst, even with a century-long history of great caddies, many of whom are institutions themselves, we can neither confirm nor deny such activity thrives on the likes of Pinehurst No. 2 or our other golf courses.*

*We do, however, remember producing a video a couple of years ago that spent half a day on our Facebook page. In the video, we recreated a few of these adored quips and jokes and sneers. As you can imagine, it was initially very popular, was beginning to spread rapidly – and then was quickly deemed entirely too offensive to allow to continue with unfettered access on the interwebs. Alas, the video has been destroyed, never to be shown again. (Wait, what is this flash drive? Hmmmmm.)

Many of these quips are well-known, of course, and some you may have even heard here and there. And in the spirit of this day, let us all enjoy them once more. (And if you have more, feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Just keep them (relatively) clean.)

FROM THE FAIRWAY

Golfer hits a shot way right
Player: “What’s over there?”
Caddie: “Bogeys.”

Player: “Can we get there with a 5 iron?”
Caddie: “Eventually.”

Golfer swings
Caddie: “I’ve seen better strokes in intensive care.”

Golfer swings
Caddie: “I believe you have a loft problem.”
Player: “Really, a loft problem?”
Caddie: “Yup. Lack Of Freaking Talent.”

Player: “What’s long over the green?”
Caddie: “A 6 or 7.”

Ball stuck behind a tree
Player: “Is this the best you could do?”
Caddie: “You should’ve seen where it was.”

Golfer swings, disgusted
Player: “This is the worst I’ve ever played.”
Caddie: “Not true. You were much worse yesterday.”

ON THE TEE

Golfer swings a driver
Caddie: “You have a great short game. Unfortunately, it’s off the tee.”

Ball in air on a par-3
Caddie: “Short.”
Player: “Short?!”
Ball lands on false front and rolls off.
Caddie: “That’s a GVR. Green Visited in Regulation.”

Golfer swings
Caddie: “You know, fairways do come with the greens fee.”

Golfer swings
Player: “Where’d it go?”
Caddie: “Left.”
Player: “How far left?”
Caddie: “When you see Nancy Pelosi, you’re getting close.”

Player: “What should I hit?”
Caddie: “Try the fairway.”

ON THE GREEN

Putt comes up just short
Caddie: “That’s a Cuban.”
Player: “A Cuban?”
Caddie: “One more revolution and it would’ve been perfect.”

Golfer skulls a chip over the green
Caddie: “Tough green to hit from there.”

Player: “I’m so freaking mad I feel like breaking something.”
Caddie: “How about par?”

Crazy world we live in, huh?
