We've all been there. The tee time has been booked days in advance. The WhatsApp Group Chat is popping. The banter has begun. The weather forecast promises sunshine. It's going to be a great day out on the course, and who knows, maybe it will be the greatest round of your lives.
Fast forward to the first green, and a double bogey has gone down on the card and you begin to question why you even bothered to get your hopes up of a miracle round.
Just the 17 more holes to have fun.
Two golfers experienced exactly that moment recently in one of the most relatable golf videos we have seen this season.
Check out their hilarious video below (posted by @cd_golf on TikTok):
Here's how a number of golf fans reacted to the post:
"It's going to be a very long round. Hope they had copious amounts of booze to soak their sorrows in."
"I feel better making a double to start with than a birdie. If I birdie it's usually all downhill from there."
"Skins start on 2."
"Yup, that is me and buddies alright. So relatable."
"It's why we love the game, right?"
"This is me every round."
"If you don't start with a double then are you really doing golf right?"
"All aboard the double train."
"I would happily take that. Usually send my first tee shot OB and make a triple!"
