The 18 Most Annoying Golf Partners

You need to flip through Golf Digest's "18 Most Annoying Golf Partners" slideshow. If for nothing else, you'll enjoy the picture of "The Cart Girl Schmoozer" ... for obvious reasons.
18 Most Annoying Golf Partners
I typically play golf with friends or by myself so I seldomly get to experience the kookiness of some of the personalities described in the slideshow. And part of me is saddened by that. Sure, in the moment, the antics of the "Ball Retriever Guy" or "The Plumb Bobber" would be enough to drive you mad, but afterwards, these antagonists provide good laughs for years to come. "Remember the time we played Sonny Guy and we got paired with that guy ..."
I wish Jackson had more municipal courses to play so I could meet some of these people!

those were priceless.
I'm "human rain delay" and "delusional guy".
"... but afterwards, these antagonists provide good laughs for years to come"
I tend to agree with you, Mustang. My son and I still chuckle about the "constant talker" we played with years ago. He was sort of goofy looking, did not play very well and talked all the time. Eventually he made a particularly atrocious swing and fell in a heap, moaning about his back. We told him he REALLY needed to go back to the clubhouse but, no, he just had to finish. So he got up, limped along and continued his monologue for the rest of the round.
I might be yardage book guy, I'll have to check...the marker says 150 but my gps says 153 but it looks more like 145
Those need to be schmoozed.
I am the color coordinated guy, lol my thought was look like a golfer might play like one. lol
I am definitely the air counter, probably the cart girl schmoozer, too.
I'm the delusional guy. Though in my defense, when I was younger I did the "I'm not going to make it there anyway" and then hit into the group in front of us. Figure it always better to wait and sh*nk it than go for it and almost kill someone.

A couple of those hit a little too close to home
I am an air counter and yardage book guy for sure.
@SpaceMaNy0: took me a minute but i got it! LOL +1 def need to be schmoozed.
Only been playing few years. I am the mulligan guy :-(
Hmm, worst foursome to be behind? Ball retriever guy, The Human Rain Delay, The Plumb Bobber, and Yardage Book Guy.
For me, the favorite foursome to play with, The Cart Girl Schmoozer, The Frat Boy, The Volcano, and The Overcelebrater --decide who's who before hand in the parking lot -stick to your role.
Every foursome has one. If your partners seem like fine fellows , then you're the one.
i'm definitely an air counter, but i usually try to wait until we get to the next tee box to start counting.

#19 would be Ball Barter guy. He's the alternate personality to Ball Retriever Guy. After retrieving the balls from the lake, he attempts to wheel and deal while on the course. Favorite Saying "I'll trade you these 2 Pro-V1s I just found for 3 Srixons"
#20 would be the guy who equates long hitting with being a good golfer. Sure, I'd like to be 2 or 3 clubs longer like them, but I'll take my bogey golf over their doubles and triples any day.
I used to be the guy who would go for the green in two. Most of the time, I could get there but I was rarely accurate. Now, I'm more like #20 but I wouldn't call myself a good golfer.
#21 - I left my wedge on the last green guy.....I hate that! Also synonymous with the "what the hell did I do with my headcover" guy. Favorite saying, "I'll check the lost and found after the round"(after retracing his steps the previous three holes).
#22 "Vanity. It's my longest sin!"
Defining characteristics: Knows can drive the ball on short par 4s. But will still tee it up and hit it while people are still putting on the green. Will then scream, "Fore", go up and apologize expecting guys to laud him at his skills.
Favorite expression: "The wind carried it".
