I always thought you have to plan out your round like a conservative, yet swing carefree and loose like a liberal.  I hate to get political on a golf chat, but who do you think takes more self-taken gimmies - Democrats or Republicans.   Why??

I get it...

Definitely Democrats! Conservatives most closely represent Costanza from Seinfeld on the golf course....IME. The reason should be fairly obvious if you have any political knowledge whatsoever.

I tend to avoid talking politics. It never ends well on the internet. :p

Based on the [i]stereotypes[/i] I'm familiar with, I'd say liberals/Democrats. Conservatives would be the most likely to say "it's in or it's not, there's no 'close enough'" or "if you want it to go in, hit the putt right next time". Liberals would seem more likely to reward the effort, "that was a heck of a putt, shame it missed by a half inch, why don't you pick up anyway?" or "that bizarre bump in the green seems unfair". /waits for flamage...

The problem with this thread is the fact that I could say the ultra liberal would say when a putt lips out

"that should have gone in so we will just give it to you in fact take one more stroke off"

Working for the government opened my eyes to both parties more than I would have liked and both of them are flawed heavily. It's just a shame that I don't think there is a politician left who doesn't have a price or won't let their party push them around.

Right like Clinton."  I never had sex with that woman."

Democrats want more holes around the green so everyone has a chance. They would take a gimme because they feel entitled to it, due to the lack of other holes.

Republicans want a smaller hole to further differentiate the lesser golfers from the better ones. They take less gimmes to avoid being the lesser golfer.

No, the problem with this thread is that the moderate viewpoint won't even be explored. This is because conservatives call everybody who disagrees with them liberals, and liberals call everyone else conservatives.

Liberal golf: Any drives over 150 yards have to be rolled back by 10%; over 200 yards, 25%; over 250, 40%. If you hit the ball 300 yards, you're disqualified. There is no fairway: it would be unfair to give straight hitters a further advantage. The highest score has the "honor" on the next tee box.
Conservative golf: The player with the most expensive equipment wins; clearly he has too much invested to fail, and it might take down the whole golf economy.

Conservatives won't allow any gimmes for high-handicappers.  For the tour pros, however, "that's one's good" from the tee box.

    • I voted no as he is what he is. The alleged child abuse (if true) would be unfortunate and could explain why he seems to disown his parents. His personality could still be what it is, with or without the alleged abuse. To me, it's none of my business and if he wants to talk about it, that would be his choice and not mine. Notwithstanding all this, he is still a great golfer who would beat me with one hand and one foot tied behind his back and I appreciate him for what he is.  
    • Do you have a swing thread going? Maybe you should  create a swing thread with your videos. Go to ‘Members Swings’ and upload your videos from YouTube then post the links.
    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
