Why does Dustin Johnson continue spitting on the golf course?  He represents the Unites States, and he hardly presents the most positive image of our country.  Although I admire his game--his length off the tee and his accurate approach shots--I find it hard to support someone who is constantly spitting in public.  It gives a terrible image to our young golfers as well.  Dustin, can you change your ways, please? I'd like to root for you, but I just can't bring myself to do so right now.

  • iacas changed the title to Dustin Johnson Spitting

I never noticed he spits...🤷‍♂️ Phil Mickelson chomping gum is annoying though.

Spitting on a golf course. I've done it, and I have seen it done many times by others. Even on TV. 

The only time I really ever thought about normal (?) spitting in the negative, was when that guy Sergio squatted down and purposely spit into the cup during a televised tournament. I thought that was pretty ignorant of him.

Now there is a problem I have with spitting and that is those "asshats" who spit sun flower seed shells all over the greens. I see someone doing that, and I will probably give them an ear full of WTFs..

Of all the things that non Americans see as images of your country, both positive and negative, DJ is a long way down the list. Assuming you are American, would you think that others think poorly of you because DJ is lacking in social graces?

Hell, little league!

And do NOT follow a professional  bike race!  😱

I completely agree! Also, finding a well chewed stub of a cigar on a green is right up there! I get sinus issues on occasion, and will sometimes have to snuff one back, hork it up, and get rid of it! I will not spit on the green, fringe, or the tee box. I'll move off to the side and spit there.

Last time I looked, this site was called The Sand Trap, not The Dugout.  Different game, different etiquette.   Chewing and spitting in baseball have long been part of the game, some may say part of its charm.  I have no problem with this practice in baseball.  Golf is a different game.  I never saw Arnie or Jack spit.  We choose our heroes, I suppose.  I prefer those who spit less on the golf course.  That's all.

Agreed.  We all do it--spitting, that is--at one time or another (cold, allergies, whatever).  It's just about spitting all the time...

You sure as heck saw them smoking. That’s worse by far.

Out of all the bodily fluids I've seen left on golf course, spit is pretty low on the list of my concerns.

Except for the guys that spit sunflower seeds on the green, special place in hell for them.

Wonder if the bash brothers put a little pinch between cheek and gum

Bigger problem with those guys is what they put into their other cheeks. ...

Can't say it ever registered with me when a pro golfer spits. TV broadcasts must not pick it up very much.

As long as it isn't at someone or on the green, spitting seems pretty insignificant to me. Several players I know chew tobacco. So spitting, for them, is par for the course.

    • You’re right. @onthehunt526 didn’t realize how bad the lie was (see above where he quoted the app indicating “first cut” when it wasn’t), so I think that’s where he was going with that statement. I mean, he’s right, if the lie wasn’t as bad as he thought. 
    • Day 3: Did more of the same stuff working on backswing priority piece, with LVP camera. Bought a net that’s supposed to go up/down easy, and measured my mat to cut it down to more portable strips for new practice area. 
    • You may as well say that not trying to carry a ball 370m over water on a par 5 isn't going to win you the tournament if you need eagle to win. Are you seriously suggesting that Oosthuizen does not realise that 3 is better than 4 and that  4 doesn't win? So...in a press conference you would ask him why he laid up and he'd say "I had a better chance of holing out from 80 yards than making a putt like I did on Saturday"? Come on. There is no hypothetical scenario here. He did all he could do. 
    • I forgot how he reacted to the eventual birdie.  Probably the most disappointed "I just made a birdie on the 72nd hole of the U.S. Open" ever.
    • Yeah, I agree. He would’ve went for it  if it was in the first cut, sitting up, or in the fairway—no question. If you put it in the drink from there, at least you went with the right shot under the circumstances and tried to win the tournament. He probably doesn’t eagle though because it would’ve been so hard to stop the ball on that green. But then again, maybe he makes the Tiger putt from the back of the green (not the “expect anything different” putt).
