There has always been a fierce controversy on the golf course about the Mulligan rule, and how many times you can play it. Well it may be really documented quite well, but who cares. I have come up with three variations on the good old Mulligan.
Golf Ball in pocket:
- As long as you have a golf ball in your pocket you can hit another.
- Only one pocket can be used.
- You may only refill your pocket after the hole, but before the first tee off of the next hole.
- You may pay the “new” ball on any stroke, except putting.
- You must play your last hit, not your best.
Golf Ball in bag:
- A large bag of recycled golf balls are required (48 balls recommend, if you plan of getting very drunk the 96 is allowed)
- Only one bag per cart.
- Partner may though you another ball from cart, if you drop of miss ball it is considered a bad hit and must remain where it lays.
- You must leave the ball you did not play where it lays and you may not place it back in the bag; you may not pick it up. The ball is lost. (Grounds keepers love this part)
- You may play a “new” ball on any stroke, except putting.
- If you run out of balls in your bag, you must play the last ball until the end of the round. Lost ball cannot be replaced.
- If you loose you last ball, you become drink bitch for the remainder of the round. There may be more that one drink bitch.
Two Golf Ball:
- You play with two golf balls one in pocket.
- You can only replace your second ball after everyone is down to one ball. Then everyone gets a second ball.
- Proof of second ball must be shown before first tee off. First player on tee must announce, “Show me your balls” before hitting.
- If you can replace your second ball, it must directly after “showing your balls”, but before your first hit.
- If anyone looses both of their balls, everyone get to replace their second ball.
- You must play your last hit; you may not play best of two.
- You may play your second ball on any stroke, except putting.
Please play responsibility, and don’t crash the cart.
