Golf stereotypes video worth a few minutes of your time
Series: Golf Buzz

In the last couple of weeks here at PGA.com, we brought you a story on our "Unwritten Rules of Golf," and not long after, we reached out to our PGA.com Facebook friends to give us YOUR unwritten rules of golf.
Well, to add to those two pieces, we wanted to share this video we stumbled across entitled, "Stereotypes: Golf."
Created by YouTube user "Dude Perfect" the video is a humorous look at many of the of the stereotypes we encounter on the course, including "The Old Guy" -- you know, the elderly gentleman who always says, "I don't hit it long, but I hit it straight"; "The Sand Trapped Guy" -- the player who takes several tries to get out of a bunker; "The Tee Box Talker Guy" -- the person who can't keep their mouth shut when you're about to tee off; and more.
It's a good laugh and, if you've played golf for any amount of time, surely you've encountered several of these.
