"It's in the (%&#$*#) Hole!"

46 posts in this topic

I may be the only person that feels this way, but I strongly believe there needs to be a team of enforcers who travel from PGA event to PGA event.  The purpose of this team is to enforce the "It's in the Hole!" rule.  If you are at an event, and you yell it (It's in the hole!), the team takes you behind a palm tree, cactus or rock, and pummels you until you promise not to do yell it again.  It was funny when  Bill Murray mumbled it in Caddie Shack, and it was funny the first time someone yelled it at an event.  But...now it is droll and irritating.

Not to start an argument but I don't understand why you let it bother you.  They paid their money to get in and don't harm a soul in saying "It's in the hole".  Are you that sensitive about what people say when you play?

It doesn't really bother me much, I just think it's outright goofy. If you're gonna yell anything it should be either, "MASHED POTATOES" or "JACKASS!!".

But it's only really funny if you're dressed up as "Where's Waldo."

You gotta love the guy who yells, 'ITS IN THE HOLE" on the tee shot of a 500-yard par-5.  Id love to see these on-course idiots dealt with as well because theyre just doing it to be obnoxious.  Id like to see someone go to where they work and when they are trying to concentrate on their work, pop up and yell something stupid about what they are doing.

I've only ever heard people yell out "Get in the hole!". They don't say "It's in the hole!"

Every time I hear it, I think "how original!" I wonder why noone has ever though ogf saying that before" It's so funny!.

I agree - they should be removed from the course. It's getting worse.

Do you have a high sensitivity to people who call out drunken oafs?

Im with you man!! Its annoying as all hell!!!! I dont understand why these drunken retards even say it every freakin time. Like teeing off on a 550 yard Par 5… "GET IN THE HOLE" WTF!? Seriously?? Go drown yourself in the lake… You're a moron…

Paying to get in doesnt mean that they get to be obnoxious.  I'll tell you what, the next time youre going to go play golf let me know and on every tee shot I'll stand on the side of the tee box and scream, "GET IN THE HOLE" as loud as I can.  We'll see how many holes it takes before you get sick of it and tell me to get lost.

Agree.  Id expect someone to beat me over the head with a golf club if I did something like that. LOL

Yeah it should be stopped. However, I would like to hear someone yell "rocketballz!" after a taylormade sponsored player hits. Just for a few days.

I'm tired of hearing it when watching PGA events.  I used to only hear it a few times and now it seems some idiot yells it on every single shot.

Pay me a million dollars for 4 days work and I'll put up with it.

      Well, I went ahead and bit. Amazon Warehouse Deals has a few for $86 each. I had a $25 Amazon GC from Christmas, so after tax, it's going to be $66. It says the packaging is damaged, but no mention of problems with the device. Here's hoping it comes in good shape, and that it warms up pretty quickly so I can use it!
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      The tournament I was supposed to play in was cancelled , so I played in a shotgun start today. The group I was in played at a quicker pace than the group in front and the group behind us, so I had plenty of opportunities for practicing greenside chipping and bunker shots as well as putting.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      While I expect it's largely accurate, I was more interested in a link to the actual quote than your paraphrase. The context of the question and interview plus the exact wording gives a clearer understanding of the statement. I accept deeper field of talent, I don't accept that it's automatically 'a ton' or an order of magnitude greater. What's the average score relative to the field (or % making the cut) in the PGA for the Pros vs. the PGA qualifiers from then to now? That could provide some insight to relative gap between majors field depth then and now. I am certain it's gotten harder for the PGA qualifiers to make it tot he weekend. I am less certain by how much the margin has shifted. The reason I stress the Majors and Opens is that size of field and openness to qualifiers is very important in making the top competitors face many elite players with potential to have a hot run of form. You're comparing apples to oranges there. That was ~ 1.5 million players in the U.S., not the world population of golfers. About 26 million golfers today in the U.S. Worldwide in 1920 who knows? But including Europe, Australia, and other 'commonwealth' countries it was likely double that - maybe triple. Also I can find no credible estimate that supports 100 million current golfers worldwide. Most generous is about 61 million. While there are a lot of clubs world-wide, participation of 'casual' unaffiliated golfers per club is not going to be the same as in the U.S. and that's the only way I get a number close to 100 million based on actual data. U.S. golf population talent base roughly tripled between Jack and Tiger and I expect worldwide it was a similar rate of increase. I think since the 1920's the U.S. has had about half the wold golf population, though that's started to decline of late as Asian participation increases. Jack was head and shoulders above highly competitive fields for nearly a generation similar to Tiger. I don't think human abilities change by orders of magnitude in short spans of time so I expect that Jack was an outlier of similar human ability as Tiger. How close and who has the edge is IMO debatable. Were Tiger's achievements (esp. the 'beat the field' streak) tougher than Jack's because of field depth, yes. How much more I'm not as sure as you. Did a relative 'competitive break' from full field events offered by the WGC's help Tiger there? Don't know but it's possible. Combine Tiger's regular wins and Majors and I have no problem giving him the greatest player of all time nod. I just don't think it's as cut and dried or by as large a margin as you seem to. They didn't play against each other so your confidence isn't any more a fact than my uncertainty. We're both estimating. Size of the field actually competing matters too, not just who wasn't invited to the party. I like the idea of a top player field and enjoy watching the events, but if only the top 50 players are playing they all have a better shot statistically than if the field was open to 156 or more players who are still very 'elite' in skill. As you've said in many posts, golf skill performance is highly variable. I agree and that's why I think size of field is relevant to the comparison, because I think the scoring variability of the top 90 golfers in the world overlaps considerably with the next 90 down and even a bit beyond that. That's why I wondered whether WGC wins are a bit less valuable than a major or a full field PGA tour event that's also open to Monday qualifying. Granted the world ranking system is better than it used to be, but it still weights international events more strongly than they deserve. Some of the reasons I think you may be undervaluing Nicklaus' achievement in comparing across eras.
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (January 2016)
      I managed to complete the January challenge (without missing a day, I believe). It was a great months' work for my game - having to blog every day sure helps to focus each session.
