"It's in the (%&#$*#) Hole!"

46 posts in this topic

I may be the only person that feels this way, but I strongly believe there needs to be a team of enforcers who travel from PGA event to PGA event.  The purpose of this team is to enforce the "It's in the Hole!" rule.  If you are at an event, and you yell it (It's in the hole!), the team takes you behind a palm tree, cactus or rock, and pummels you until you promise not to do yell it again.  It was funny when  Bill Murray mumbled it in Caddie Shack, and it was funny the first time someone yelled it at an event.  But...now it is droll and irritating.

Not to start an argument but I don't understand why you let it bother you.  They paid their money to get in and don't harm a soul in saying "It's in the hole".  Are you that sensitive about what people say when you play?

It doesn't really bother me much, I just think it's outright goofy. If you're gonna yell anything it should be either, "MASHED POTATOES" or "JACKASS!!".

But it's only really funny if you're dressed up as "Where's Waldo."

You gotta love the guy who yells, 'ITS IN THE HOLE" on the tee shot of a 500-yard par-5.  Id love to see these on-course idiots dealt with as well because theyre just doing it to be obnoxious.  Id like to see someone go to where they work and when they are trying to concentrate on their work, pop up and yell something stupid about what they are doing.

I've only ever heard people yell out "Get in the hole!". They don't say "It's in the hole!"

Every time I hear it, I think "how original!" I wonder why noone has ever though ogf saying that before" It's so funny!.

I agree - they should be removed from the course. It's getting worse.

Do you have a high sensitivity to people who call out drunken oafs?

Im with you man!! Its annoying as all hell!!!! I dont understand why these drunken retards even say it every freakin time. Like teeing off on a 550 yard Par 5… "GET IN THE HOLE" WTF!? Seriously?? Go drown yourself in the lake… You're a moron…

Paying to get in doesnt mean that they get to be obnoxious.  I'll tell you what, the next time youre going to go play golf let me know and on every tee shot I'll stand on the side of the tee box and scream, "GET IN THE HOLE" as loud as I can.  We'll see how many holes it takes before you get sick of it and tell me to get lost.

Agree.  Id expect someone to beat me over the head with a golf club if I did something like that. LOL

Yeah it is annoying. Its pretty much every shot now, so I don't know if its annoying or just so overdone.

Yeah it should be stopped. However, I would like to hear someone yell "rocketballz!" after a taylormade sponsored player hits. Just for a few days.

I'm tired of hearing it when watching PGA events.  I used to only hear it a few times and now it seems some idiot yells it on every single shot.

Pay me a million dollars for 4 days work and I'll put up with it.

They are right up there with the geniuses who drive by the course and honk their horn and yell fore.

    • One. July of 2015 had it in front of my wife (and 7 strangers) the one and only time she's ever watched me play. Long story short I was supposed to play with a friend he cancel and I ended up with an ace. I was a foot short of another one on the same hole last year.  It's definitely luck but so are most of my good shots.
    • As someone said, the golfers who can hit it longer than everybody else will always have an advantage. Just like tall guys in basketball and fast guys in the 100 meter dash! Let's face it, pros and better amateurs have always been longer than the herd. And the public will always love the big bombers. Why do you think John Daly got so popular? And, If you want to hit a PW 150 yards, just get your clubhead speed to about 110 MPH and you can do that. If you can't, well I guess that just sucks for you! But Blackjack Don's and Natureboy's last comment are still valid. We now routinely see courses on Tour that are 7,400, 7,500 yards long. And isn't there that otherwordly looking course in French Lick, Indiana that is 8,000 yards from the tips? Heck, I have a 7,500+ yard course right here in my back yard not a 15 minute drive away. And just last Spring I read a "Letter to the Editor" in the local paper where some environmentalist nutlog referred to the local Metroparks course (36 holes of Donald Ross design) as a toxic waste dump, and a waste of water!
    • I don't have much to add to the conversation, I just wanted to say I don't like this guy at all. I think his comments crossed way over the line. I think he has always been a cry baby like during his whole process of switching to side saddle. I feel its been a huge distraction towards his game. It might have made him more popular or given him more sponsor opportunities because everyone kept talking about him. For 2017 I feel his game is on the decline. I don't see it coming back up this year.
    • It's tough to say it is just one thing. I will put it is as a this, optimizing spin rate to launch angle.  Peak height. Those who swing slower struggle to keep the ball in the air long enough to get optimal distances on their irons.   
    • I've been revisiting this endless belt concept and imho it does seem flawed. If I just imagined I was an adjustable camera that could continue pointing normal to the changing swing plane (ie. formed by the front of the left forearm and clubshaft - left arm flying wedge) from the top of the backswing to impact, the real hand path would look different to these 'face on' views. 1. From the top of the backswing to maybe end of the early downswing (left arm horizontal to the ground, right arm/wrist still still retaining  its angles) , the radius of the hand arc would probably be the distance from the hands to the sternum notch. 2. From the end of the early downswing to impact - the right arm would have progressively extended somewhat. Therefore that 'camera'  would see a hand arc path whose radius (if we used the sternum notch as the centre of the swing) is getting progressively longer.  So if I was that camera , I would see a tighter hand arc radius in the early swing but getting longer into impact which is the complete opposite of what we are seeing from a face-on view (an optical illusion?). Have I got this correct or completely wrong? So is all this theory about 'Aiming Point' flawed from both a geometric and physics perspective?  Maybe just learning to sequence the passive unhinging  of one's wrists for various types of strokes makes more sense than concentrating on an  'Aiming Point'.
