Since it isn't necessary for everyone to be as big a golf nerd as I am, a few things can slide. As frustrating as it is to be asked "what did I shoot" on each hole, it is acceptable (although, "make" or "score" sounds a little less clueless). I'll even let "what did you golf?" slide, if it is from a girlfriend who is just trying to peer into your life a little after 18 holes with your buddies.
What seems a little far-fetched and ridiculous? Anthony Kim, the second coming of Tiger Woods, not having any clue how many major championships El Tigre has won. Has Kim been hanging out with Boo Weekley too much lately?
At the press conference on Tuesday at the Mercedes Championship in Hawaii, Kim gave all the guys with microphones an absolute gem.
"I'm not a huge golf fan, so I don't know all the stats," Kim said. "I really thought he had won about eight majors, and he told me he won 14. I didn't know that."
Not a huge golf fan means you don't know what a pitching wedge is. Not a huge golf fan means "bounce" confuses you. Not a huge golf fan means you think a mashie is running over your buddies ball with your golf cart tire.
