Hello 2017

After another March snow delay (that’s 3 years in a row), the Bad Golfers Association finally got its 27th season started with the ceremonial passing of The Simian Award from the 2015 winner (The Snowman) to 2016’s champion, Commish. Just

Driving Rain, Driving Faux-Pas, and a Streckfus

Daylight was waning as we teed off and later that night the weather service was calling for the start of a week of rain. Arriving just before tee time, Commish starts it off with a jack O.B. left almost to

What If The Snowman Was No More?

MtPleasBGA

Imagine a golfing world that didn’t have The Snowman in it? What if all of those opportunities to laugh and mock the futility of others in your foursome disappeared and suddenly you became the recipient of the scrutiny usually reserved

Substitute Scribe Breaks Arm Patting Himself on Back

The weather was perfect, The Snowman (BL) showed up early and Mr. FourSkin (BC) drifted in lackadaisically. The complete compliment of the BGA stood on the tee box of hole one and little did any of them know that history

As the Days Dwindle Down to a Precious Few…

September’s first round has been posted in the books, and, depending on weather and daylight, there remains only 6 or maybe 7 rounds left this season. With this in mind, here are a few of the highlights (low-lights?) of the

The Snowman doth cometh once again

Arise my friend and breathe once again. The Snowman doth cometh once again. It’s alive!!! After Frosty’s most excellent round of even par 36 (that is, after subtracting his 9-hole handicap of 20), he once again has a pulse as

The Snowman Subs for Our Scribe

With Commish away on vacation, Cousin Ed Adams (once mistakenly thought to be Edie) joined Mr. FourSkin (BC), Mr. Fifteen (CS) and The Snowman (BL) for a cool round of 9 at Mt. Pleasant. Despite barely clearing the road on

April 20…Bad Things Happen From the Fairway

As every BGA’er knows, very few good things happen from the fairway. For instance, today Bill “Mr. FourSkin” Cockey managed to hit 2 fairways. On The Road Hole (#1 on the scorecard) he hit 235 yards down the middle and

Rd 13, June 17 Could 2 Chee’burgers Really Be Awarded?

The short answer is “No,” but it was oh so close. With The Snowman stuck at work, the intrepid three teed off in a slight drizzle (like, what’s new, right?). The first 2 holes were a “wash” as six bogeys

Rd #11, June 3, Where Art Thou O Snowman?

Another week of steady rain, the first June days in 6 years with high temps below 65, and The Snowman fails to post, again. The scuttlebutt around the BGA Central Office is that he is trying to sit on his
