The poll of over 2,000 male members of extra marital affairs website IllicitEncounters.com revealed almost a third of all cheating men cite golf as the excuse to avoid them getting caught.

Over 32 per cent of respondents said they had used playing golf as an excuse to slip away from home to spend some time with their secret lover. The second most popular pretense was going to watch football with friends with 17 per cent admitting they had used it as an excuse to sneak away.

Spokesperson Mike Taylor commented: “Using an existing hobby like golf is an excellent way to cover up what you are actually doing. A plausible reason for being away and unreachable which won’t raise suspicion is essential. Golf provides that as it can go on all day and you can blame a poor signal – due to remote courses – for not calling sooner. I have even heard of our members taking up fake hobbies as a cover for a secret relationship.”
