post #37 of 165

I'm none of those guys...fun video though.

post #38 of 165

Course was dead so I did some of the ball hunter guy today, 7 balls, 2 pro v1s.

post #39 of 165

the only problem I have is the PGA enforcer part was a bad example - as per the rules bumping the ball off the tee is NOT considered a stroke if no intention was made to hit the ball - heck I saw Adam Scott @ the PGA this year bump his ball off the tee with his driver accidentally.  Probably the first time I ever saw on TV a pro do it, lol.  But point is, NOT a stroke.

Give yourself a birdie on the next hole you actually make bogey then.  I did that because my brother in law loves to pad his score.  He once dead hooked a drive left on a hole we were playing... I topped my driver just past the tee box into the ravine (lost ball) lol, I took a 3 wood for another shot, put it in the fairway bunker.  We get to the fairway, he finds his ball he hooked and picks it up, plays his 2nd tee shot which hit the fairway.  I hit out of the bunker to the green and 2-putt.  I called it a 6... he called himself a par.  Next hole he's on the green in two with a LONG putt.  biffs his putt it goes 5ft... re hits it and "2 putts" for par.  I go "You gave yourself a par after that putt?" and he says "I re-hit it..."  LOL.  I've given up as well.  You can't change people like that.  But sometimes the easiest way to call them out for it is to tell them on a hole you clearly saw the whole course playing a par... and wait for them to say "How do you figure you made par from the water, woods, bunker and rough?"

I'm not any of them, but I play with the guy who walks across your line a lot.  ...and I'm often paired with "old dude".

 

I would be "the guy who forgets to be social because I'm too interested in just playing golf."

post #42 of 165

Hahahah...that was good. I'm DEFINITELY the "Sand Trapped guy." You'd think with how often I hit the bunkers that I'd actually be a pro at hitting them out by now. I can also be a bit of the "over-estimator guy", but that's only because I really don't want to hit anyone. Every once and awhile I'll just crush a drive and be like..."where the hell did that come from?"

post #43 of 165

If I force fit myself, I'd be the ball hunter.  I often play super twilight after work.   Sometimes, I am the last one in the course to finish and there'd be a lot of lost balls left by everyone who played before me.   I will be looking around for lost ball as I walk along.

 

The video forgot the following ones:

 

Impatient waiter - course is completely full with four-somes on Saturday and the guys keep telling others why the front group is so slow.

Slow putter - on a same busy Saturday, he checks out the green from all angles, takes multiple practice swings, and insist on putting one footer.

Happy drinker - one beer per hole

Serious smoker - one cigarette per hole

Bomber - to every which way

Race driver - self explantory

Speed golfer - self explanatory, II

Coach - dishes out unsolicited advice

Instructor - see Coach

post #44 of 165

Yeah they should have the unsolicited advice guy.  I got paired with one of those once and it was surprisingly annoying.  It would be one thing if it was a tour player but when it's some random old dude telling you shit you already know...  I know, let's just call it John Madden Guy.

Looking at the greens in that video I think I am the "not playing on cored greens guy"

My thoughts exactly with the sand trapped thing.  Sometimes I will go a full round and not hit the sand once and sometimes I feel like I'm in the sand every other hole.  It seems like there's no middle ground!

Haha.. we should come up with some more of these.

 

Bedroom Brag Guy - The guy who talks about sex the entire round

Fancy Equipment Guy - dresses like a pro, plays Pro V1's, has new set of $1000 clubs but shoots triple bogeys on the reg

They missed a couple that apply to me from time to time.

 

Parallel Universe guy.  This is the guy who hits a drive that looks solid on a great trajectory, starting down the left side of the fairway and fading 10 yards.  The entire group is saying "great shot", to which he responds "I didn't hit it."  Conversely, this same fella will hit an 8-foot putt that misses high by a foot and say "I hit it perfectly, that's all I can do.  Just misread it".  This is the same guy who will bury a ball in a bunker on the short side and say "I hit it perfectly, only missed my line by 10 feet."

 

Didn't see it guy.  You all know this guy.  He cuts the corner over the mounds on a dogleg and misses it just wide.  He gets down there and finds himself in a bunker/hazard that he "didn't see" and "had no idea" existed.  "I got screwed--I never would have taken that line if I'd known that was there."

 

 

And this isn't me, but I love him--

 

Press guy.  This is the guy who loses 12 out of the first 15 holes, then invokes the universal right to "press" double-or-nothing on each of the last three holes.  Then loses all three of the press holes.

I call your "parallel universe" guy the "glass is half full guy" - I have a lot of that, but I find that it's just better to keep the lessons learned internal around the more crotchety types.

 

he just means he hit the shot as he read it - no different than saying "I really thought it would break" when it rolled straight.  Goes for encouraging the other players - miss a putt, sometimes saying "nice line" or "good weight" is a great comment, but for other players they are just upset they missed and don't care to take the part they got correct to heart.

 

It's best to play that for yourself only, and keep it to yourself - until you know who you are playing with.

 

as for a great shot and "I didn't hit it" - weird game isn't it?  It feels like crap but flies great sometimes.....Maybe the guy just doesn't realize how soft and clean the sweet spot feels.....I have a really forgiving driver, and shots off the heel fly pretty nice, but feel like crap.  Instead of "I didn't hit it", it's usually, "yeah, thanks, came off the heel and felt like a rock.  Pretty shot though, better lucky than good"

 

it's a silly game - I just play my game, if I try to accommodate all the bitching and peeves I see on this site, I'd just sullenly trudge about the course, not eat, drink, or converse.  ;-)  but then that would bother someone too.

post #49 of 165

I am definitely "rules enforcer" guy. I am amazed at how little some guys who play golf 3-4 times a week know about the rules. My favorite is the drops they try to take after hitting the ball in a hazard, usually far away from where it entered and on the perfect line to the pin.

 

And I was playing with "untrustworthy scorekeeper" guy yesterday. When I am playing for money, I am always aware of what everybody scored on a hole. This guy tried to declare the wrong score at least 4 times. I came to the conclusion in the end that he really didn't know so now the concern is, how often is he doing this in tournaments? Believe me, it's not like he ever wins anything; he doesn't. But still...

post #50 of 165

I've been golfing more than 50 years, so I guess I'm the Old Guy....

post #51 of 165

The "Oh NO.....YES!" guy, opining about how poorly he hit the putt and then it goes in. We have one guy who does it incessently. I always tell them they should have to take it over, although I must admit I have been guilty on occasion. :8)

I have a different version of the "didn't see it guy." One of my buddies had a really bad tendency to hit the ball square on the club face, but his club face was 45 degrees to the right. We see the ball push so far to the right and start cutting further OB while he's looking straight down towards the fairway saying "I got a good hold of that one but I didn't see it." We tell him where it ended up (usually OB) and he doesn't believe us.

Mr Gamesmanship can be found uttering the following phrases:

 

"You swing really slow for a big guy"

"You swing really hard for a little guy"

"Do you inhale or exhale at the top of your swing?"

"You really need to smash this drive to have a good look at the pin"

"Watch out for the lake on the right"

 

Like this guy in the Titleist commercial: 

"That's a biiiiiiggggg...... bunker."  Love the delivery.

Oh, I'm definitely Mood Swings Guy.
