Tales of annoyance from the golf course

5 posts in this topic

So, today I stopped by a golf course to hit some putts. There is one other guy guy on the putting green. All of sudden the guy has some kind of sneezing fit. He then continues to loudly suck snot between every putt. This continues for about five minutes. Of course, being the mentally disciplined golfer that I am, I ignored snot dude. However, I decided he needed a doze of his own lack of self awareness. I decided the only appropriate action, would be to move up wind of him and, light up a smoke and fart. I wonder if snot dude will be posting here soon.

I've had a runny nose on the course before and I will tell you that it is no piece of cake trying to blow your nose into a scorecard. I'm certainly not going to get my towel dirty like that either. I'd say that it would be one thing if he was doing it on the course, but on the practice green he might have been in a groove trying to finish before going to blow his nose in the clubhouse.

I was on the putting green today when some ahole lit a cigarette and passed gas .... J/k Was on the range the other night ... A guy was hitting his driver ... Pounded the driver in the ground twice prior to lining up behind the ball and the pounded on the ground 2-3 more times on the way to his setup ... And I wear headphones! So I just started doing the same thing ... I also hate when 3-4 high school age "buddies" show up ... Every other word is F this ... And I cuss like sailor myself, but this is over the top and loud ... Again I wear F'ing headphones ... Not to mention they spew balls all over the place ... Hitting 2 at time and other silly shit ... Also like the guy that chips by the "no chipping" sign ... Really? I know English is a hard language, but WTF?

My annoyance tale is from last Monday.  I was put in with a 3 some, Dad (80) son and nephew.  They were fine and real nice.  The annoyance was there was a twosome behind us that we had to let play through on the third hole.  Why the hell didn't the starter put me with them?  Made no sense to me.

This happened a couple of weeks ago, my brother and I had a 8:20am tee time, it was the first one available on the website.  When we go to the course it was about to rain, but not big deal, we play in the rain.  We got to the course around 8, when to the pro shop and scanned our keyfobs, got our score cards and went back to the car to get our bags and push carts and headed to the first tee.  We no more then got everyday stuff out of our pockets and golf stuff into our pockets and it started to sprinkle, so we put on rain gear and got our unbrellas.  After about a 10 minute shower, rain subsided and we teed off.  On the tee box for the 3rd hole a pair of carts pull up and the guys tell us we are in the middle of a tournament.

We just shrugged our shoulders and kept on playing, but as we get to the 11 hole, one guy from the group behind us, jumps us and said we didn't have a tee time, we didn't check in at the pro shop and we need to leave.  Again we just shrugged our shoulders and played on.  Come to find out there was a tournament, it was a shotgun start on the front 9, our tee time was after the last group teed off on 1.  They didn't tee off on time and were ticked off that we did.  Pretty annoying that we get jumped twice when we teed off on time.

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
