I smoked pipe the past two days while playing golf, cobs. Both days were windy making lighting a PITA. I used a torch the second day, $7 cob so I want concerned about burn out. Aimed flame at center of bowl with a very quick burst. Didn't see any damage. I went through a bowl about every 4 holes. I smoked a cigar the last 4 or 5 holes. I enjoyed smoking the pipe more than a cigar even though it's a bit more effort.

I ordered a Zippo lighter with pipe insert today and another larger cob.

I do while walking all over the course in off-season and will sit on a bench way out there while the dog sniffs about. Carrying a bag or pushing my cart I doubt I will, but it’s inevitable I’ll try it in a cart, especially late evenings when either me or me and the wife are the only ones out there. I can see that working well!

I'm too old to play for the Tigers and too young to take up golf (one of these is a joke). However, I use cobs as "outdoor event" pipes. Like going to the beach or a bbq.

My clumsy ass is likely to drop, break, or lose a pipe outside, especially since I always have an eye on my very adventurous toddler.

If I brought a pipe golfing, it would snap in my pocket or fall in front of the cart while I bobbled my beverage. In other words, a comedy of errors, a broken pipe, several curse words, and my pants would be wet.

Thankfully, cobs are cheap workhorses that can easily be replaced if something were to happen.

While I appreciate those that have the ability to live an active life while smoking a nice pipe, I know my limitations. After all, I could run more, but the ice cubes would fall out of my glass and if it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.

18 degrees today (like the 1 iron I wanna get) so just some putting fun for me. But if it breaks 40 tomorrow I'm going to try to get on course!
Reminded me of a golf joke:

Q: If there's a dangerous thunderstorm, why should you stand in the middle of the fairway and hold a 1 iron pointed straight at the sky?

A: Because not even God can hit a 1 iron.

I smoke a pipe from the terrace of the golf club, while watching the golf players play golf. Then they come, we smoke and drink together. mostly Nordic-European players, a few American players. Everyone speaks English, except for me, I don't understand shit. I just say yes and no and ok. And when we drink too much, we all say the same thing.................We laugh like mules, it's all wonderful

Usually a cigar at golf. Not a huge fan of golf but play for work. I feel to pressured for time when playing golf so I do not smoke the pipe.
