Golf Etiquette: The 15 Strangest Unwritten Rules in the Sport

Golfers do some strange things when they are out on the course.

And no, I do not mean all the bets that start once the beer starts flowing.

I mean the etiquette. 

We already have a rule book, filled with rules and exceptions to those rules.

Hey, even most of the professionals (cough, cough, Dustin Johnson) are not aware of all the rules.

But on top of the official written rules, we have rules of etiquette.

These are not rules you can read somewhere. These are rules you pick up by watching and playing the game.

And if you don't follow these rules, I can guarantee you will not be very popular with your playing partners.
