Clay is the best golfer of the group and is best friend to Duff. Golf is Clay’s life, and Clay’s life is golf. All possible energies are poured into his habit, and since he is unencumbered by the responsibilities of family life, Clay is a continual temptation to Duff. Every waking thought and energy is poured into lowering his handicap. It is no wonder then that Clay is single and lives with his dog Birdy.
Duff is an unabashed golf addict and Clay’s best friend. He is married to Rosie, has a son, works full-time, and therefore has the arduous task of trying to fit his life into his golf schedule. Duff cuts every corner and saves every penny to squeeze in one more game of golf… instead of taking Rosie out on the town.
Rosie is Duff’s long-suffering wife. She manages to keep her marriage running, raise their son Scott, and takes on the most difficult take of all… trying to keep Duff as much involved in the process as possible. Her major tug-of-war is with Clay, Duff’s best friend, who is continually after him to chase that little white ball.
Putts is a bad golfer. A bad slice, a bad marriage, and a short tempter make for quite a combustible combination on the golf course. However, as bad as that sounds Putts keeps coming back for more.
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 this medicine out to them each week. Shin is in love with her, Clay will not rest until he beats her, and Duff is racked with false guilt from having a beautiful golf pro. Carrie takes it all in stride and makes the boys better golfers in the process.
