Dustin Johnson Spitting

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.

Good grief.  The things that offend people these days...

...and the only person Dustin Johnson is representing is Dustin Johnson.

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

I agree it’s really disgusting. I wouldn’t even do it when playing a practice round on my own. Who raises people to spit anywhere! Sad.

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?

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.

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
