Golf Twitter Is the Angriest Sports Twitter


Recommended Posts

The heart rates of 40 avid sports fans were tracked and according to the chart below, golf fans are the angriest. The two players who riled them up the most were Sabbatini and Kuchar. I would have thunk Reed would be up there. Is 40 enough of a sample size?

I left that "platform" many years ago. There is too much hate there across the board.

40 seems pretty small too me.

Life is short people. Getting PO'd over golf celebs is downright silly.

I don't think twitter is the best source of data. You have a lot of echo chambers, and social media makes money off of people getting angry at each other. This is built in to their algorithms since it promotes the most clicks and usage.

I've dumped all social media.  There's too much everything on all of it.

Text, email, or call. If you want to keep in touch with someone, you can and you will.

Faldo has a doesn’t always strike the right note. He can be amusing but also he can miss the target and sometimes sound like a bit of a douche. I like his commentary though, and he was an outstanding player

I would still argue that most people that are passionate about soccer (the world's most popular sport) aren't on twitter.    Have you been to a pub in a foreign country watching a soccer match?    It's crazy and full of emotions.

Hooligans can't operate the internet.

    • Why not square? Hooks suck, too. Your face is shut in both swings.
    • Have you made the 6 instead of 9 mistake? I have! Wow that 9 iron went far!
    • Played another rusty 18 holes yesterday, but made some good shots along the way.  The best one was on a 370 yard par 4, where I missed the fairway left and dumped the approach in a pond short left of the green. Took a drop and had 85 yards into the wind left to the pin over the same pond, landed it directly in the cup and broke both the cup and the Covid-filler put into it. The hole spat it back out to a 5 inch tap-in bogey, but it was still pretty amazing shot. Wonder if it would've stayed in without the covid-filler in the hole.  
    • A couple of the changes I made in the last year took weeks/months to stick. I know I’ve finally changed the picture when I film some swings that feel crappy, but when I look at the video, the change is still there. We just have to prepare our mindset to know it’s going to take time and effort.  
    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors.
