Do You Talk To Your Golf Ball?
By mustang6560 on 4/27/12
I recently played golf with a friend who did something I was not accustomed to - he talked to his golf ball after nearly every shot.
"Get up."I am a fairly quiet golfer (or at least I was), so after the third hole I finally asked him, "Why do you keep talking to your golf ball? It can't hear you."
Au contraire, he said.
My friend is a former PGA Professional and he said talking to your golf ball is one of the most important nuances in the game. If you never talk to your golf ball, he said, it will never listen to you. But, if you talk to your golf ball on a regular basis, it will occasionally listen to you.
While his explanation was rooted in superstition, I decided to give it a try.
I now talk to my golf ball after nearly every shot. I can't tell if it's making a difference or not, but I noticed that it makes me feel better, which I guess is the ultimate benefit.

Yes, I talk to my golf ball - but it is female so it doesn't listen to me or even when listening decides to do the complete opposite!!
Yes I do. And if it dosn't listen I get a different ball.
I also talk to my mates ball as well!
