What is your biggest pet-peeve in Golf?

Mine is a tie with the "Get in the Hole" and the fans waving to the camera.

I think that first paragraph is great and perfect.  Especially reciprocating with advice. you used the words "fairway metal" - I take back the nice thing I just said

Looking back through some of these threads, seems like a lot of folks get pissed off by a lot of stuff, and some guys are pissed if X happens, while others are pissed if X doesn't happen. --I h

No, because that would be improper grammar. Sorry, couldn't resist. :D It struck me as odd but I've gotten used to it. What actually happens is they'll list all the things they do wrong and

NASCAR... Period.
NY any team... Yankees is the top.
People at a Tour even that out right run to a ball that has been shanked to look at the golf ball like "omfg, a white alien egg has fallen from the sky, lets investigate"
White Sox (I'm a cubs fan...)

Never knew that happened. That's freaking funny!

yep it gets ridiulous. You get good seats at the race and have to stand the whole time because of all the drunks all around you getting up and cheering everytime their driver comes by.

So you're saying if Tiger flairs one out way right you're not going to run to it to stand mere feet away from the best player in the world? I don't mind hustling a little bit to get a front row seat.

I don't mind "get in the hole," but I do mind "get in the water" (which I heard last at the CA Championship).

Interference with the game in play annoys me, whether it's a woman picking up Kevin Na's ball (and then changing her story as to whether or not it was out of bounds - not that that matters pre-identification), people reaching into the outfield to catch a ball, or people trying to tell the coach what play to make in basketball.

I don't like it when I hear someone say 'Get in the Hole' from 200 yards out RIGHT after the golfer made contact..not knowing where the ball in heading or anything.

the showboating/look at me attitude by the athlete after a play....I mean isn't he getting paid for what he/she just did?....could you see a Car Salesman pumping his chest, dancing around like a fool and what not after a deal is done....

My biggest pet peeve will have to be in golf when im teeing off and people are waiting behind me I either hit the ball of the toe or the hozzle because of that. this also occurs when im putting or even just playing the game.

Yeah I heard that on the 18th at Doral. I think it was Phil's tee shot. Must've been a die-hard Nick Watney fan. That was completely unacceptable.

another pet peeve is: Parents sitting in the bleachers thinking they know the strike zone from a side angle...and yelling come on Blue, get some glasses....

Much worse when it get yelled when teeling off on a 550 yard par 5...

Slow play in golf bugs the crap out of me. Football players yelling and screaming after they thought they nailed someone but really did not also makes me want to tear my hair out.

    • Still should have at least been called… it would have been reviewed and probably upheld as a 5 and 10, but mitigating circumstances might have made it a double-minor.    In other news, the Isles win game four against Tampa to tie the series and guarantee at least one more game in the Coliseum.
    • OK. It’s NBC’s drone camera. Its resolution sucks. Just notice on the wide angle overhead shots. The picture quality is terrible.    Throw in the 4D camera it feels like NBC is using old technology and not keeping up. 
    • I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post this in (I debated the thread about putting and why to not accelerate through the ball) or not.   How does one practice the putting stroke slowly? I'm starting to wonder if my issue with speed is a bad putting stroke, and there's something convenient that I'm doing well on the bead drill (the ruler one) fairly consistently.  So I want to do something to check that my stroke itself is okay, and I got mixed results from a drill from Utley's putting book earlier today.   Other than "swing the putter very slowly" ... is that the right thing?
    • I've got that book @billchao...Golf my Way.  And I remember laying my hands on the pages.  
    • It’s only a few mm at most, right? Wouldn’t you see more of a difference from changing the kick point in a shaft?
