If your skiing were golf... - Page 4

post #91 of 103
If skiing were golf I would only ski once or twice a year at bachelor parties and drink an 18 pack (Coincidence? I think not) over the course of the day. I would also swear a lot and periodically throw pieces of my equipment into various ponds. Further, I would ride a snow cat because walking 18 holes is barbaric. Then I would have to stop the cat every 2 minutes and wait for some old ladies in the group ahead of me (on the green in 9) to 6 putt out. Then I would go shove a ski pole up some guys @$$ in the group behind me because his second shot is dribbling around my ankles while I was politely waiting for the old ladies. Then the ranger would yell at me for driving the cat acoss the apron and for the pole incident.

Finally, I would be toss $20 bills out the window (of the snow cat) the entire time while running over my pals' balls on purpose for fun.

Golf handicap = 7.4

Skiing Handicap = 15

My skiing is very similar to golf in a lot of ways.

I ski with buddies and, although I marvel a great shot (brilliant run) I secretly enjoy watching them struggle and miss a two foot putt (was that tree as hard as it looked?)

I spend more on a burger and a beer at the turn (lunch break) than my green fees.

Every time I ski or golf with my wife we end up in an argument (you stupid SOB you know I hate bump runs! = If you tell me to keep my head down one more time you will have a new orifice in your face.)

Three putts are bad. What is the equivalent in Bumps?
I'm not great at either, but I'd say I'm better at putting than bumps.

Does the term "Old duffer" mean anything to you?

If my skiing were like my golf I'd be dead. I'm a mid 90s-100 handicap in golf. I love the hell out of golf and play all summer and spring but just can't seem to break into the 80s.

If I had to put a handicap on my skiing I'd say between Par and +5....? I don't know someone would have to equate a ski scale to the golf score for better accuracy, I can ski everything and rip some things and the very difficult stuff I am average at and below on....I am working to master that stuff....but I dunno 74? +2 +3 par? who knows

No, IMHO, you look at the tracks you make in powder.

I ski and golf but to me there is no way to compare the two. I have had countless horrible rounds of golf. I have never had a bad day of skiing.

Probably around the same as my golf game...15 - 17 depending on the time of the year...

As far as golf not being dangerous, I personally have driven a ball off my own shin.

Gratuitous old joke
Whats the difference between a skier and a golfer?



A golfer goes: WHACK "****"
A skier goes: "****"Whack.

Golf swing vs. a carved turn? You can skid a carved turn for a nano-second...Skid your downswing with the driver, you are looking in the woods for you ball or taking a drop.
Skid a turn in some bumps, trees, or before a cliff and you wake up in the emergency room (if at all). That said, I've put in roughly the same amount of hours skiing as trying to play golf. I competed in freestyle skiing (never placed though), was PSIA certified for two years -then went to college in OK, beat the local Nastar pacesetter once or twice- he wasn't that good, and I could ski anything "public" in my prime. I played almost as much golf (years, not so much hours par se) and never broke 80 "by the rules". I enjoy both sports the same. Good topic.

A friend I golf with would say:^^^^^^ "That's some funny Sh!t right there!"
