This would have been funnier if you wrote 'would of' there at the end to see if anybody picked up on it.:-P

Haha I considered it! The problem is that I hate it SO MUCH that it almost makes me physically ill to write it. :)

It's probably been posted several times but something I hate SO MUCH is when people say "should of" instead of "should have." Saying "should of" instead of "should have" basically means you haven't read a real book since 2nd grade. It means your understanding of the language is based on what it sounds like and not what the actual words are, which you would have easily picked up on had you been reading.

I hear ya. Bugs the shit out of me; trouble is, I catch myself doing it occasionaly too! It never makes it by my first proof read but it can creep into a first draft when I'm kind of just "stream of consciousness"-ing it. (...and I read a ton - just for the record) The one that truly drives me up the ****ing wall is DEFINATELY and all of its variations. Think FINITE people, FINITE not FINATE, FFS! Seriously, I'm gonna loose my shit!

Yours in earnest, Jason.

Oh yeah. That is a bad one for sure.

The one that grates on me and is getting worse all the time is using the adjective "good" instead of the advereb "well". They should fire the next commentator who says "he's playing good" or "he's hitting it good". The players are even worse and many of them claim to have gone to college. I'm begining to think that may of them think its cool to sound like a moron. Tiger went to Stanford so he certainly should know better.

Are you a high school or college English professor?

Gotta disagree a little:  the accepted incorrect spelling is "DEFIANTLY." :smartass:

The other day I heard a golfer in an interview say something like "I played good today and I feel really well." That was something new!

About 3-4 years ago, I added/replaced a couple wedges that sure'd up that gaps in my short game.

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

I don't have the exact quotes, but a guy keeps posting "waist" instead of "waste" in the "non-golfer" thread. It's driving me nuts lol

What makes me go nuts is when people use apostrophes wrong, as in using it for a plural form of a word such as "there are many car's on the road" instead of "there are many cars on the road".

Yes and lack of commas can kill. "Let's eat grandma"

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

    • I see that guys like Rahm and Phil are suggesting they now play 72 holes. They appear to be conceding that their circus is viewed as less than a true competitive event. Rahm was a whiney bitch all weekend at Augusta. Regrets?
    • Yeah, in the lessons I have taken we have worked on swinging less steeply. I probably still swing too steep with woods.  Average yardages through my bag according to my Garmin watch (won't be 100% accurate due to sometimes the watch not picking up a shot, or me accidently clicking the wrong club): 60 - 100 yds 56 - 106 yds 52 - 125 yds PW - 149 yds (this one seems off to me) 9i - 149 yds 8i - 157 yds 7i - 167 yds 6i - 178 yds 5i - 190 yds 4i - 202 yds   And longer than that is where I get into trouble: 2i - 208 yds (small sample size on this one, still mostly just practicing with it one the range as the slice % is too high for my liking) 4 wood - 202 yds (haven't used it much last season due to not liking it) Driver - 241 yds   My driver has a huge variance as well. So for example on Sunday (the first round of the year) I hit it 5 times. 2 were big slices (186, and 179 well off to the right). 2 were my hands getting too closed and hitting a much too low draw/hook (239 and 225 on the left rough), and one came out low like the draw, but actually had a fade on it (210, just off the right side of the fairway. Looking back at some past rounds, the good drives (maybe 10% of shots) tend to be between 250 and 280. So when it is outside of 200 yds is where I really get into a lot of trouble. I will often play irons off the tee, or on a par 5 lay up to gap wedge range to try and give myself a comfortable shot in.
    • And yet on they have no problem calling every wooden club a persimmon even though they’re not all made of persimmon. As @iacas said, it’s just what the clubs are called.
    • Hybrids you're supposed to play much like your long irons. I don't really like them anymore because I have a tendency to hook them. I'm probably going to replace my 2h with a 5w soon. Fairway woods are meant to be hit off the ground with a shallower angle. You don't want to take too steep of a swing that you're taking much of a divot. If you have difficulty with the length you can try to choke down on the grip a little. I honestly don't think, based on what you're written so far, that a 3i is really the answer. Maybe learning how to hit the fairway woods better so you can play your 4w or even get a 5w might be the play. What are your yardages through the bag? Do you even need another club just because you can fit one in?
    • And by 'growing the game' they mean growing their bank account.  It's just a weak and stupid rationale.
