Yea those guys are annoying as hell also. I actually am the “return guy” for my son when he is practicing. We don’t use a bucket we use 3 or 4 balls. If it is crowded enough where that is too much then we work on something else. The feeling of being that guy bothers me so much that I refuse to do it.
That’s a whole different issue. You couldn’t be more right. You don’t have 30 of the exact same putts in a round of golf. It’s not like bowling where it’s the same distance and pins are always in the same place. We may use 3 or 4 balls but he chips them all from different areas and distances. I’ve never understood putting from one spot for so long.
