18. DON’T MAKE FUN OF PLAYERS
Did I mention that golf is really hard? Chances are you’ll witness — or take — a handful of embarrassing shots during a round. Skulled wedges, chili-dipped chips and all-around whiffs are commonplace on most courses. It is commonly understood that laughing, mocking, or otherwise degrading your playing partners after a poor shot is disrespectful.
Unless, of course, you’re one of my lunatic friends and have absolutely zero conscience. Seriously, those guys are animals.
