"The Comics" Thread

post #1 of 180
Thread Starter 
I'm stealing the name for this from Andy Plummer, but it's so apt I couldn't resist.

The purpose of this thread, which I hope will be an ongoing thing, is to contain links to and mockery of unintentionally "funny" or perhaps even downright stupid golf tips all of us undoubtedly see in the various magazines, websites, etc.

I'll start it off with this gem, which doesn't even need to be refuted as I think anyone with an ounce of common sense will see how bad it is.



Oh, AJ... you should stick to the card tricks...

Share your most hilarious "finds" and let's keep this thread going.

Vomit, I couldn't read past the first sentence of the article "A slice comes from only one condition: The clubface is open at impact, which puts cut spin on the ball."

Here's a video of Lead-poison. It's a double whammy--displays his love of selling overpriced, useless golf aids and his lack of knowledge regarding basic ball flight laws.

How is that in a magazine with a 2010 date? And when are they going to stop selling "draw" drivers that dont promode a draw?

May I ask which one of his trademark techniques he is flipping through there?

Also, is it just me or does that dude not look just like you'd imagine Jack Hamm's dad would?

When morons stop buying them.

Re: "The Comics" Thread

When people try to keep that golf glove tucked up under their arm, throughout the entire swing, that's just pure comedy.

Re: "The Comics" Thread

Actually, these tips in golf magazines are quite effective. I clip them out, give them to my friends to try, and that always works out well for me.

Re: "The Comics" Thread

I teach the game....I thank the editors of these magazines every month....I wonder if any magazine will publish the real ball flight laws

The one-handed-closed-face-power-draw... :D

GolfDigest Caption says: Fred's rotating the clubface closed for a power draw.
Source is here

Re: "The Comics" Thread

It's true, the speed you gain from rotating the club during contact with the ball, will make that draw a power draw! POW!
