Thread Starter 
Id just like to know who you guys dislike the most in the world of golf?...please can you give a name, and a reason why.

But keep it clean, and legitimate reasons only.

Regards

Basher.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I've never been a big fan of Steve Elkington. I wouldn't go as far as saying I hate him, but I have always gotten kind of a "snooty" and selfish vibe from him. His situation with Bubba didn't make my view of him any better either. I respect his game, but he doesn't appeal to me as a person.

I've never really liked Sabbatini either. Once again, he seems stuck up and self-centered.

For me, it has to be Gary Player. Fancy making allegations about drug usage and saying that you know who's doing steroids but not giving any names. It seems like he's been trying to draw attention to himself for all the wrong reasons.

Rory Sabatini... I honestly find his constant gum chewing abnoxious... and I dislike his attitude... I don't hate him... but I definately root against him.

Sabbatini brings a bit of controversy to the tour i would say that at least. What were the circumstances surrounding his famous outburst on the course relating to slow play?..

I use to root against Norman back in the day but after his collapses at the Masters I kinda felt sorry for him. Never really liked Sabatini either, I respect his competitive fire, just should have kept his mouth closed more.

Jim Furyk...

Nothing personal, but I think his swing is the ugliest thing I've ever seen. Not to mention the guy is a major geek. I don't mean the guy any ill will at all, but I would typically root against him.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I never root agenst anyone. I prefer to cheer on my guy (whoever that may be) than to wish for his opponent's downfall.

But I think Sabatini's skull belt buckle looks stupid.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I don't hate anyone. I don't even dislike anyone. However, one guy's been rubbing me the wrong way lately.

Gary Player.

You can look up what Tom Watson said to him about pressing the grass down, and that's part of it.

I'm put off by his playing in his "51st Masters." He likes to tell anyone who will listen that it's his way of showing how important physical fitness is, but I think it's more about beating Arnold Palmer. I think Gary's a jealous guy with a little bit of the short man complex going on. Nobody cares about his physical fitness.

Plus there's the way he handled the whole steroids/HGH/etc. thing. He likes to tell you he was asked the question, but he wasn't. He volunteered information to get his name in the news again, it seemed like.

Everything Gary says or does just seems to be a little phony, a little off.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

Ya'll are being too hard on Gary Player. He has just gone senile. Whenever he talks you just have to nod your head and slowly walk away.

I dislike Tim Herron. I hate hearing his stupid nickname, and he is so freaking boring. Maybe it is wrong for me to say this, and I'm sorry if it is, but I just don't trust people that go ice fishing (one of Herron's hobbies). I think there must be something else going on in that little hut and I don't appreciate being kept out of the loop. (or then again, maybe I do appreciate it... )

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I don't hate any player but I do hate Joe Schmoe, the fan, who constantly yells "Get in the hole." There is nothing more irritating. I never hear at NBA Games "Get in the basket" or at MLB Games "Get over the fence." It's annoying and obnoxious.

Sergio Garcia - The spitting in the cup sealed the deal. Everything that comes out of his mouth seems to be negative... I thought it was a cultural thing until he spit in the cup.

Can I say the Slazenger Raw Distance guys too? "Ready to get pounded, a-gain." Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

Yep, the "kids are eating absolute garbage, and I will save them all" speech is getting old. I feed my kids well,.... yes,,,, they like pizza and the old standby chicken nuggets. They take vitamins and I pack them vitamin water in their lunches (or gatorade). Manage to feed them some good home cooking along with some friuts and veggies.

Gary Player is a prick in my book, talk about painting with a broad brush....

I also don't like boring, robotic,...golf, Which is 85% of the field. It is getting to the point in 10 years lets just run a computer simulation to see who wins.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

Rory threw a fit because he was paired with Ben Crane. Slow as molasses. Big Ro walked off the green, I believe at Congressional before Ben putted out. Whaaa!!!.....Woody Austin is a big blowhard. Yeah, right they both want Tiger. Then there is Mike Weir, another fussy pants. And Tommy Armour III. Hey, fold that collar down and get a hair cut. I used to not like Monte, but he needs a major, but not the masters or us open. Furyk is pretty cool. If you have a bad slice, try to copy his swing, really gets you on the inside. Norman is a whiner too, remember his crying at the Kemper Open about #9 green?? Then he wanted the World Golf Tour. He's not even good enough to play on it now...

Basically, anyone with a mommy-and-daddys-countryclub-I-dont-want-a-real-job-golf-swing, is on my sh** list. Golf is one of the only sports where you can buy talent.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I do find Gary to be a little bit off these days. I feel sorry for John Daly even though he is bringing it all on himself - Norman well I just like the guy and thats all there is too it. Jim Furyk is a great example of why this wonderful game can have all sorts of weird swings etc..

so the winner is - hands down without a shadow of doubt in my book -
Sabatini - what a un -sportsman like prick. I have seen him act like ass time and time again and I also heard that guys on tour pray not be paired with him.
Everything he does just makes me wish he would skull the ball 20 yards past the green into a bunker and then bounce out into the water. Infact - I would rather watch those idiots on the Slezenger raw commercial then Sabatini...and thats really saying a lot.
