Golf Clubs And Underwear.

For the first time in a long time I was confronted with the decision of whether or not to let someone borrow my clubs. I’ve had this happen a couple times in the past but I always had an out – I’m a lefty. Never did I ever come across another lefty that wanted to borrow my clubs. Usually, we are a rare breed and know that we just need to have our own set.

I needed some time to think about this. A couple factors that came into play were 1) this guy is not a golfer he just happens to swing left and 2) he was going on a golf trip with his buddies. Hell no! Red flags were going up everywhere. It’s tough enough to find a left handed set that you want without special ordering and paying out the ass for it. Do I really think this guy will care for them? I doubt it.

Unfortunately, I had to nicely turn down the request by telling him my clubs were at the shop being re-gripped. That’s good one, right? I just hope he’s not reading this. How do I explain to someone that (for me at least) letting you borrow my clubs is like letting you borrow my underwear. There’s a personal attachment and if anyone is going to dirty them it’s going to be me. Ok, that might be a little to much info but you get the point.

Maybe I’m a little extreme with my reasoning but I can’t quite let someone else borrow my clubs. Especially if they never played. I mean, I have no problem with letting someone use a club when I’m there but the whole borrowing thing isn’t quite jiving with me. 

What do you think? Would you let someone borrow your clubs? 

Hit’em long…yell FORE!!!

    I agree. I do not lend my clubs either. Most non players do not realize how much money is invested in a good set of clubs. I am with you, that is why I have 2 sets of spares in my garage.
