Farting on the tee box

34 posts in this topic

Yesterday I played a round at Stoneridge in Northern Idaho with my dad. We play pretty fast so there was a lot of waiting and play throughs due to a packed course. As we were waiting on the 3rd tee box for the foursome in front of us to tee off something hilarious happened. One of the guys (he looked like a biker with the handle bar mustache) stepped up, took a huge swing and on his down swing he ripped a loud, greasy fart. It sounded wet and all his buddies were laughing as were me and my dad. Whats worse is his shot sliced hard right and hit the side of a condo that lined the fairway. Being the smart ass that I am I yelled "hey buddy you need some toilet paper?". He snapped his neck back at me and gave me the finger..lmao Ithought he was going to charge at me. Lol:-D

I let one go on a par 3 last week. It was during my backswing on the teeshot, and I had to check my swing as my Uncle and I just lost it laughing. Haha.

With that said, I wouldn't say something like that to someone I don't know. Laughing is one thing, heckling a big biker guy for farting after he hits a house with his tee shot is a good way to get your ass kicked.

In the film Bucket List I believe it was Jack Nicholson that said"  "Never trust a fart".

I'd say sharting is a telltale sign you are over-swinging.

I wonder if anyone has a pre shot routine that includes a fart if they are playing alone? :-D

dunno...I've seen a number of "grunters", but no "farters". I guess its not much different than weight lifters expelling a little breath before their move only using a different orifice.

It's my new swing thought, BM through A6 and A7 for extra power.

Chuckle.   I can't say I have not farted on a tee box before but this one sure tops it.

You should given him a golf tip - "It's all that tensing up that is causing you to fart as you swing."   I wonder if he'd still give you the finger ... LOL.

Had he let it go on the through swing he could have added up to 15 yards on that slice piercing the condo!

I have had to pause momentarily before tee shots to let one out silently - otherwise, it's coming out at 80 decibels during my swing.

Nothing worse than a creaky tee box.

    • 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.
