I’ve learnt something today: there are tons of golf-related innuendos. Rough, bush, bunker, hole, shaft – it’s a writers dream.
I came across this effectively useless tidbit of knowledge upon reading that the act of playing golf has been named the most popular excuse that an adulterer tells his wife.
The totally scientific study says that 34% of adulterers use golf as their excuse as it allows them to sneak out of the house for several hours at a time, which makes sense, I suppose.
The second most popular excuse was “working late” followed by “going to the gym,” “going to the pub, and “shopping for groceries” (lol).
I blame Tiger Woods.
