Sorry (and flame away all you like) but is anyone else frustrated with the number of people who freely use the word "loose" when they actually mean "lose"??? Shouldn't bother me but....
One's a verb and the other's an adjective (I think!).
"I don't feel like I'm on my game today; think I'm going to lose."
"You're going to lose that headcover if you don't make sure you put it back on your putter properly."
"What do you know? Must have lost some weight as my jeans are too loose."
"Hang loose, man!"
Etc, etc. Think I need a beer...
