    It's too late for you to learn enough even to BS about golf with a real golfer. If the subject comes up, just lay it on the line that you don't even know enough about the game to talk about it....much less, play it. Do not imply that you think the game sucks! A better approach would be to imply that you have often thought about taking up the game; but you were so busy with work that you just never felt like you had the time to devote to learning the game. :cool:

    best advice for your interview

    as someone said above, if you try to cheat about your golf knowledge, they will see thru you.
    WE golf nuts can't be fooled. If they ask you about ICONS of the past, or about a swing tip, or a player that golf nuts know but not the general public, you will be toast.

    Use Google to find out the player who had the historical Double Eagle to take the lead at the Masters on Sunday. (you said you did watch it, so not a lie) Then learn how to pronounce his name. You win!

    In New Mexico, if you hit it out-of-bounds, you don't try to find the ball. Because you will find a rattlesnake first.

    Yeah, that's good. Tell them that.

    i honestly think they will see right through it. Golf isnt exactly something one just picks up. I played some with my ex and its sooo much harder and complicated than I ever thought. If you try to BS it you will just hurt your odds.

    Tell them that the only thing you know about golf relates to wimmens. Something on how you approach the hole.



    Then you can go on to your next job interview.

    Tell them the truth---golf is a waste of a perfectly good rifle range.

    That's confusing, IMO. Simply, a hook is a ball that curves toward the shaft side of the club and a slice is a ball that curves away from the shaft side of the club, regardless of whether you're left or right handed.
