    I was listening to Jim Rome on the way to work, and one of his guests told a story about taking a knee on the golf course. There was a big build-up but the short version: two dudes got drunk the day before, woke up for a 9am tee time, and one dude was so hungover he had to go to his knee to place his ball down.

    I was like "WTF". Who here has gotten tanked and raced the next day?

    My buddy did it for the Downieville Classic (5000 foot climb, and basically the Downhill course for the finish). He said that the volunteeers along the course, who were drinking with him the night before, kept busting on him as he rode by them.

    I golfed once after drinking heavily the night before. Golfing on a 100 degree day with a hangover is not a hell of a lot of fun. :dead:

    I did an expert XC race the day after pounding too much wine at a wedding. My head felt like it was going to explode and I was dry heaving at the starting line. I was dead last on the start sprint into the singletrack by a good 30 seconds. I managed to rehydrate myself on the first lap and ended up getting 3rd. Actually I think hard excercise and a whole lot of water is the best cure for a hangover.

    Golf is what you do when you are too hungover to do anything else. Or you want to drink and drive safely

    Last time I played golf, there were more beers in the golf bags than clubs.

    Oh, and my first response to the title of this thread..... "and?"

    Golfing with a hangover is far harder than biking with one.

    Probably half of the DH racing I did over 6 years I was hungover. I passed out on the lift a few times while going for a practice run. Usually by race time I was a little better.

    Well a company I Used to work for had this golf tournement. and I signed up for it. even though I had not played in years . It was a shot gun start. and my 4 some was sent out to the 14 hole. it was one of these where the Tee is up higher than the hole . so they had me tee off first . So I got up there and hit the Ball with every thing I had. it took off nice then Made a hard right turn , through some trees into the Next fair way. a couple minutes later a cart pulls up and they yell at us "don't you believe in Yelling 4 ? , were on our way to the hospital to get stictches" and the one guy is holding a white and ( now ) red towel to his head. I klunked him right above the eye, he got 9 stiches :) and the best part , he was one of the few on the course who was not from our company .

    There are different levels of 'hungover'. When you're so hungover you can't even hold down water the next day, there is no way in hell you're gonna do something even as unstrenuous as golfing.

    Oh and it got real entertaining as word spread through the course that some one had been hit and sent to the hopital, especially when at one point we crossed path with the CEO , and he Asked "did you guys hear some one got hit with a Ball and sent to the hospital" and the other 3 in our foursome all pointed at me , and said We not only herd , we saw him do it !

    My Grandfather belonged to this really nice country club, and he used to take me out when I was a kid to drive the carts. One time, my legs were too short to reach the brake, so I ran us into a tree. That was the last time I drove a golf cart with my grandfather.

    And Golf is for old people. 70+

    :D

    How can you compare racing and golf? Golf is not a sport.
