You throw clubs at a private club?

I sometimes toss mine 5 yards for humor at one of the crappy courses I play, but I couldn't imagine chucking clubs seriously, especially at a private course.

It's just a game man...

Sure it's possible. Most private clubs have a standard of conduct that members (and their guests) are expected to maintain. Generally, I'd expect that you would receive a warning before actually being asked to leave though.....unless there was an exceptionally egregious incident.

Better learn to manage your temper.  Not much else to say.  Nobody has the right to throw temper tantrums on the course.  Time to grow up.

I agree, i use to be a club thrower, now i don't anymore. I play much better when i am not pissed. But you could be kicked off for that conduct. Private courses hold themselves to a higher standard than public courses, especially the conduct of there members. Unless your fricken loaded, and made hefty contributions to the club, then money talks. :p

Hopefully its a warning, i would seriously consider cooling down the temper.

Depends on who saw you and how many complaints were made about you.  I'd guess you will get a harsh warning, maybe even have your privileges suspended for a few weeks but doubt you'd get kicked out if this is the first time you've had any issues at the club.

You're not good enough to be throwing your clubs.

Interesting concept, is there a "good enough" to justify throwing clubs? Getting upset over a bad shot isn't reserved for only the best golfers. When I was younger I threw my clubs quite a bit, I did toss my driver once this year, but after not playing for 3 yrs I had unrealistic expectations of how I would play. Now I know it's going to take awhile and accept the bad shots.

Well, for your sake, I hope it is just a warning and you realize the seriousness of it.  If they suspend your privileges, don't be a jerk about it.  Take the punishment like a man and realize that you are wrong in what you have been doing.  Be cordial in the discussion and make apologies for your actions.  Most of all, learn from this.

If you were playing golf in my golf league, you would be warned first time and would be required to play with an officer in the next few rounds.  If you did it again, priviliges would be suspended.  3rd time, you would not be back.

Get control of yourself before you hurt yourself or someone else by throwing clubs.

Agree with this.  Once you're in a private club it's tough to kick people out.  If they did, it would be after a certain number of suspensions and would have to go to a vote of the membership or BoD.  They also don't want to lose the revenue.

Only players who are playing for big money can justify throwing clubs in my opinion (and only under special circumstances).

Under special circumstances?? There is never a reason to throw a club intentionally. It just shows that you are a basket case who can't control their temper. I don't care if its rec golf or the PGA Tour. No person should throw a club in frustration of a shot. Its dangerous, and makes you look like a ****ing idiot.

I know there's a reason for this, but it's crappy that it has to be.

I try to hold 'myself' to certain standards.  Then I don't have to care if I'm playing in a private club or public.  (or out for dinner, or at work, or at play, etc etc)

too bad people don't do that in general, then clubs and other places wouldn't have to have rules to try and get grownups to act like grownups.  Heck, once they start doing that, then behavior codes get weird and eventually dress codes get stupid and people start to worry about what kind of watch your wear and if your spats are shined correctly, or if your pockets are streamlined or puffy, and all sorts of silly stuff.

to the OP, seriously, frustration is natural, but it's time to grow up and learn to deal with it positively.

Throwing clubs is never the answer. A swear or a curse (keep in mind ladies and juniors are on the course) maybe.

My playing partner yesterday tried to throw his driver, but I forcefully stopped him and reminded him of the occasion (God knows how many awful shots I hit yesterday, but made a few good ones too).

I hope you are seriously warned and more importantly, given an opportunity to make amends (agreeing to a lesson or two at full price helps salve the breach of etiquette in my view).

Good luck and good hunting.

    • How long should my ball test be?
      Just wanted some thoughts on how long I should test each ball Im considerring. What is a good sample size. 9 holes, 18 or even longer?
    • Question on Twitter: Easiest Way to Shoot Lower Scores in a Week
      What I have learned as I have improved and keep reading about in Bob Rotella's books is that the best way to shoot the score of your life is to focus on practicing the short game, but mostly developing confidence in your putting. Since most of our strokes consist of the short game, by getting just a percentage better there it will translate to more overall success than anywhere else.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      @Golfer2223 what does forearm rotation have to do with the shoulders?-They are not connected. Forearms can rotate regardless of what the shoulders are doing.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      Correct. For example: He also says that the forearms rotate during the backswing. Which we know that they do, and quite a bit. How much is too much? On the left, below in both images, is his depiction of zero rotation: On the right, in both images, he demonstrates nearly 90° of turning at the wrist. based on what I know, little of this comes from the upper arm - the majority of it comes from the forearm. Do you disagree with any of that, @Golfer2223? Notice one thing, then, too please. On the left, the plane of the left wrist is pretty much parallel to the sagittal plane. On the right images, it's perpendicular to it. What do we find at the top of the backswing of the game's best players? The issue now appears to be simply trying to determine what in the world you mean by the bold above, particularly because there's really nothing "natural" about the golf swing. What feels natural to you, or seems natural to you, is definitely not natural to all or possibly even the majority of golfers. in my experience I've learned that you can't really talk about the golf swing in terms of what's "natural" or not. The truth of the matter is that for golfers who do this the right amount "naturally" then it simply isn't something we talk about in a lesson. For golfers who do it an improper amount, it may or may not be their priority. Here's a wrist graph from AMM for a very, very good golfer. Note that the wrist (blue line, top left) starts with 50° of supination. It pronates, relative to the upper arm, to a position of 16° pronation at the top. That's a pronation from 50° on one side of the zero mark to 16° on the other side - a pronation of 66°. This doesn't even account for how much the upper arm rotates - the forearm has rotated 66° from the setup position. (Note that above when I said 25° or 32°, that was relative to totally neutral, not to the setup position. The forearms rotated quite a bit more than the 25-32° cited, because they started somewhat supinated.) This graph and these numbers are not unusual. Look, @Golfer2223, it's somewhat incumbent upon you to be clear in what you're saying. It's far from ideal to say things like how you expect to see "zero forearm rotation" (or whatever) but then to claim that it's "relative to the natural shoulder motion" (obviously both paraphrased). Nobody has a clue what you mean by the "natural shoulder" whatever, and many would disagree that anything in this topic area is "natural" to begin with. So, please clarify what you're saying, and be precise and use specific words, or at least define them, provide examples, or both.
    • Best Shot of the Week
      Teeing of on Northdale #7 a short par four 336 from white tees. There is a pond water hazard about 235 or 240 ahead covering a lot of right hand side. Left hand is a small area and high trees to carry. Hit driver and blasted it, carried trees on left hand side and must have gotten a good cart path bounce. When we drove up was 50 yards from center of green. That's a loooong drive for me. Longest yet.
