Clay is the best golfer of the group and is best friend to Duff. Golf is Clay’s life. All possible energies are poured into his habit and he is a continual temptation to Duff. It is no wonder then that Clay is single and lives with his dog Birdy.

Duff is an unabashed golf addict, is married to Rosie and is Clay’s best friend.  Duff saves every penny to squeeze in one more game of golf… instead of treating Rosie the way she deserves.

Rosie is Duff’s long-suffering wife.  She manages to work and keep her marriage running and tries to keep Duff as much involved in the process as possible. Her major tug-of-war is with Clay, who is continually after Duff to chase that little white ball.

Putts is a bad golfer.  A bad slice, a bad marriage, and a short temper make for quite a combustible combination on the golf course. However, as bad as that sounds, Putts keeps coming back for more with Clay and Duff.

This strip first ran in 2009 related to Swine Flu.

Carrie is the local golf pro. Being smart, beautiful and a scratch golfer can be a tough pill for the guys to swallow, but she still dishes it out to them each week. Carrie takes everything in stride and makes the boys better golfers in the process.

Dimples offers the perspective of the golf ball. How would you like to be smacked around 80+ times a day?

This strip first ran in 2006. RIP Kobe!
