The other evening I was reading a few long posts from somebody regarding Moe Norman. It was obvious that English was not his primary language and at first I thought he was making all sorts of funny grammatical errors on purpose. Everyone was on his case about it, relentlessly. It turned out he had some sort of learning disorder. It was disappointing to see that people singled him out in lieu of paying attention to his commentary which in my opinion was quite relevant and interesting.

I believe I remember reading through parts of a Moe Norman thread, but I don't remember those specific posts.

 a few are covered under the following (see around post number 44 and up:

 

Why arent more people copying Moe Norman's swing? - Page 3

 

I believe the poster was chastised  at least 4 times, some probably in teasing spirit, others more insensitive.

The topic is not what is important here, but I pointed it out to illustrate how the guy's grammar was challenged.

I guess I should not have said "everybody" but one or two seemed to be on his case.

This is what happens when you re-word a sentence late at night and neglect to proof-read before posting it.  


Or, when you post from a tiny smart phone screen...

Yeah, never saw those before.  Pretty bad writing, but I see the post you're talking about where he references a disorder.

yah, the guy is no dummy. I liked his rebuttal.

From Beachcomber in the British Open thread:

...  But Muirfield in 2013 looks beautiful and tough - but still has the traditional links flare that I love.

I would disagree, as I usually see the British Open courses as dank and gloomy, not so much with a bright glow. ;)

"So not going to push them now and save them for tournament week. And I'm sure by Monday they'll get them up to speed. They're looking to get them at around 12 and 13 [on the Stimpmeter], but you don't want to do it for two weeks with how they are right now. Just save them for the week of the tournament."

 

So, he's not really making an excuse so much as he is telling somebody who asks that the greens are slow now, 2 weeks prior to the tournament.  Big whoop?

 

That does not take away from his other comments though, so if he plays poorly and continues to say this, then I'm 100% in agreement with you.  Complaining about the conditions of a course -that everybody who beat you also played on - is an extremely lame and hollow excuse, and nobody wants to hear it.

 

Uh-huh, sure you were.  I can tell.

 

 

lol.
