Burgers, Bourbon, and Bogeys – The Golfer’s Guide to Food
Have you ever found yourself on the golf course and in need of a quick mid-round energy boost? Most of us probably don’t carry a spare MRE in our golf bag anymore. The situation is about to be FUBAR, especially if the beer cart is broken down… or she is choosing to ignore you now because of your comment about how much she looks like your ex (what’s worse, you just pissed off all your buddies too).
Now there are certainly many golfers who will carry the standard granola bars or pack a PB&J for some much-needed nourishment on the course. Personally, I am partial to Uncrustables because I hate cleaning the peanut butter off my K-Bar when I’m done making my sandwiches. If you are looking for the standard fare on the course, then this is the way to go. But if you are more of a hard charger… then by all means, keep reading.
Bacon and whiskey are never a bad option. Get yourself a pint of Jack, some bacon jerky and you are good to go. Be sure to save some room for a burger and beer at the turn, just don’t act like a fool in front of the cutie working the food shack (chances are the beer cart girl already gave her the heads up about you anyway).
Ok, now comes the fun part; you just have to maintain that range between 3 to 6 drinks. This is when all the good golf shots of the entire round will start to happen. Be advised, after the 6th beer you know your game is going to shit. If you get to the point where you are seeing three blurry golf balls on the tee, my advice is simple… just hit the ball in the middle! It’s as easy as that.
