10. Forgot your golf shoes? Wrap any pair of shoes entirely in duct tape, sticky side out, for the ultimate pair of soft spikes.

9. Eliminate the stress of reading difficult slippery greens. Simply make a duct tape trough from your ball to the hole for an automatic one-putt.

8. Tired of constantly topping the ball? With duct tape you'll never look up again. Just slap a hunk of wadded up duct tape, sticky side out, under your chin and then tilt your head down so your chin and neck are fused... you'll never look up again!

7. Sunscreen is widely used by golfers, but it always leaves hands oily and slippery, making for dangerous club slippage. Duct tape is 100% UV protection on a roll! Just duct tape over all exposed skin... you're safe for the entire day (and so are your partners).

6. Many golfers suffer from the yips at one time or another over those nasty four footers... NOT ANY MORE! Just duct tape the putter right to your forearm... you're yip-free!

5. Regripping clubs is a thing of the past with duct tape. It's sure-grip on a roll! Note: wrap club grips sticky-side-out and never throw a club again!

4. Have your greens experienced unsightly winter kill over the off-season? Duck Brand duct
tape is now available in green! Also makes great divot repairs.

3. Can't afford those fancy PRO V1 golf balls? Any ball wrapped in duct tape, sticky side out, will have that balata-like bite. Note: Distance may be decreased......or nonexistent.

2. Don't throw away that closet full of out dated plaid golf clothes. A layer of duct tape over your plaid pants and you'll be in vogue in minutes! Duct tape is fashion designer on a roll! Bonus hint: Forgot your umbrella or rain suit? Duct tape turns any apparel into rain gear. Play on!

1. Can't correct your hook or slice? Put a strip of duct tape on the face of your club to see exactly where you are striking the ball.

What the heck, let's make it eleven hints: (This one is from Tim who says that “golf is the only game that I can consistently score really high in!” He finally discloses how he managed to get 26 holes in one in one season.)

Hole-In-One Magic: Get a hole in one every time! Wrap your club face and ball in duct tape sticky-side-out. When you hit the ball it will fasten onto your club. As you pretend to watch your ball sail right to the green, secretly remove the ball from the club face and pocket the ball until you reach the hole where you reach into the cup and produce the ball. Note: This trick is best implemented in the second round and after a few visits from the Beer Lady.

Real Life Flight Announcements:
"Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."

Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!

The Swedes invented the toilet seat. Twenty years later the Norwegians invented the hole in it. Hey, quit your groanin' Jim and I are both Swedish... Think you got a better one?

Is the stock market driving you to drink?
No, we aren't advocating drinking (especially if you are underaged)... but we thought this was an interesting thought considering the recent corporate stock fiascos:"

If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, of the original $1,000.00 you would have $16.50.
With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left.
If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of cold beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent deposit, you would have $214.00.
Based on the above, the current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

Duct Tape Helps "Handicapped" Golfer
I was a 3-hdcp. golfer until arthritis entered the picture. It is pretty severe and my thumbs are partially dislocated at the wrist joint. I suffered a substantial pain in the left thumb on completing the backswing and especially at ball impact or taking a divot. I was going to quit the game but found I could tape my thumb to the palm of my hand leaving just enough room for gripping the club. This has worked for many years. The duct tape is strong, does not stretch and is much cheaper than medical tape which I started with. Can"t play golf without it and managing a 14 hdcp. at age 73. Thanks and best regards. --- John B.

Duct Tape "Pocket Pig" on E-Bay My name is Jason Quiz. A friend had a roll of duct tape sitting around so I started making things with the tape. One thing led to another and I ended up making this pig out of solid duct tape. I call him "Pocket Pig". He sits on my computer and is a hit around the office. Everyone likes him so much i decided to see if there was a market for my duct tape pig around the country. I placed him on E-Bay yesterday and I already have 10 bids on him. Some one actually wants to buy him for $5.50. --- Jason Q. Christiansburg, VA Update: the "Pocket Pig" sold for $6 on E-Bay
