Whether you’re lusting after a dude who hits up the greens with his boys weekend in and weekend out, or whether you’re lusting after someone who golfs like it’s his day job, we’re here to help. Short of getting a job on the course, here are some tips on how to swoon a golfer…
Many relationships start from mere proximity. Did you happen to notice a white-clad golfer on the greens while you were eating salad-sans-dressing at your country club? Did you get suckered in with your fam to do a golf day, only to be taken aback by all the babes hitting the fore? Add in constant cameos at the course and club and strike up conversation. “I feel like you almost live here, like I do. I’m [insert your name here],” is a great start. From this intro you can start saying salutations on the regular, then talking about his day (and yours), and suddenly you’ll both be looking forward to these rendezvous. Just make sure to strike up these convos after he’s done playing for the day. Golfers are pretty serious about staying on track and don’t like to be bothered on the course.
Let Him Shine
Most guys would rather talk about how good they are on the course, using their shining talent to impress you, rather than giving you tips. Ask him if he’s ever had a hole-in-one and to tell you about that experience, what the best courses he’s ever played were, and his best score. These will let him show his golfing prowess, something that will no doubt give him an ego-boost, yet also take your casual convos to the next level. Be inquisitive and show genuine interest. After all, this is his hobby; his pastime-de-resistance. But stay on track, girl. As cute as you think it might seem to tell him about your golf woes, dude doesn’t want to spend his time on the course teaching you how to swing or sharing his tips. Golf is all about focus, not about foreplay.
Give Him Space
Golf time is often boys’ time. Just because he’s hitting up the course every weekend without you in tow doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you. Just like you have your pilates classes and tea dates with the girls, he has his golf time. Giving him a hard time about it, or guilting him for not being around on yet another weekend, will only make him crave the course more. Instead, be supportive and let him have his much-needed boy time. Don’t text him or ridicule him while he’s on the course. Instead use this time to be independent and focus on you. If you want to compromise, however, you can always pre-plan to meet him at the course following his game for drinks and/or dinner. Or why not invite some of your girls to the country club for a tennis match while he’s playing with the boys? It’s a great balance and makes things easy. Bonus points if you wear a cute little workout outfit. Trust. Just don’t show up unannounced. No one likes that girl.
