If saying "oh, I don't like that advice, here's what I think is better" is "negativity" and makes people seem like assholes because they're trying to help… I guess many of us here are guilty as charged. What jerks we are trying to help others.
We have other topics for this, and yes, their hands do roll over a bit, but it's a passive "release" and not a result of the way amateurs tend to do it, especially a 10-handicap who says he's trying to get the toe up at waist high on the follow-through.
And, there are plenty of PGA Tour pros who don't "release" the club in this way, many of which hit nice draws.
Anyway, it's not like this topic hasn't been discussed a bunch already in the 15 years this site's been around, or the nine or so years I've been an instructor. Including:
The Dude abides, so should you!
Agree. Bucking the code is really more a reflection on you than the course. "Hey, I'm a rebel!"
No shirt, no shoes, no service is used for a reason, usually health codes.
Dress codes at courses are used to present a product that the owners feel is more appropriate and to attract more customers. Abide by it and stop whining or play somewhere else.
And wear clean underwear. - Mom
