Best one I ever saw was a ticket when I was starting my career years ago.  I'm in IT.  The ticket subject was:

Yeah anna handled it better than I would.Id be screaming foul haa.The sad part is the players cant police themselves anymore because they got big brother with cameras on everything.The thing I would be asking is why are theyre camera people zooming in on things to try and get penalties incurred.Is every shot golfers take have people zooming in on balls after shots to see if stuff is happening cause why would you just decide to zoom in on a routine bunker shot?

Theres gonna be swimmers swimming in dirty water and these guys wont even play golf.That tells you what these guys think about the olympics.I guess if they were to get paid theyd go huh.By the way im just making an observation compared to others that plan on going in any of the sports.Theres alot of pro golfers that seem like theyre entitled.

Talk about lazy posts...don't most mobile phones automatically spell and capitalize for you?

Well...welcome to the grammar thread. I have my screw ups on here as well. At times it is hard to swallow but grammar matters on the trap. So find your apostrophe and put it to good use. :beer:

Have recently seen a TV ad for an outfit that the graphics announce as "Brake Point"! One might think they're an auto repair service. Nope! They're a drug counseling service!:-\

Seems like I'm seeing more and more "a historical" rather than "an historical". Also the distinction between fewer and less is gone. I learned you use fewer with countable items and less with concepts that are unquantifiable. Don't care which of the above are used, they really don't change the meaning, not a grammar nazi, but something I just noticed.

I grew up reading and hearing "an historic" but it didn't make sense to me. I recently heard on a grammar podcast that "a historic" is considered correct. (Unless you drop pronunciation of the h--so "an honor" and "an hour" still correct.)

I think the distinction was a soft h for the an, memory is fuzzy, I think it sounds funny too. Josh in The West Wing (aka Aaron Sorkin) made the distinction, forget the episode. So historic really isn't that soft an h if you ask me.

That sign is fine...isn't it just a single lane exiting that spot, but it splits later?

Unrelated: I am not surprised you were able to take this photo, since it is rare to pass this point on the Schuykill moving at more than 2mph average speed.

I find it funny that this Montgomery kid says he just wants to do the right thing.A thief wanting to do the right thing wow.Even as hes having a gun pointed at him he says  havent done anything.I know we have laws but I swear when you break the law you gave up your rights.The man shouldnt have kicked him thats for sure.The ole guy definately needs to be talked to about seriousness of pulling a gun but his intentions were good and only way hes keeping that kid around till police arrive.

Use spaces after sentences, please.

Pretty please? You're just making what you type tougher to read.

    • I am a believer in golf instruction, but I'm not the best student. I much prefer to play rather than practice, and when the off season comes I get pretty busy and don't take the time to practice. I've had instructions from 2 different people and I've liked both, but I had my back issues start up when I just started with one. I find people like the gentleman in the op exasperating. I don't care if you don't want to bother with golf instruction, but I also don't want to listen to your rant. Read the room, so to speak.
    • Day 1: Trying to get into this challenge again, again. Starting today since I had a lesson. I feel like I have gotten to a point in my golf ability where I am creating a video game character with a limited number of stat points to distribute. Every time I add points to one area, they get taken from another area. I need to improve my commitment to practice and practice methods to really get out of this mode. This time I have to work on my backswing again, again - more turn earlier, more width, more depth. Have a simple thought for the downswing since it's not what needs to be fixed first - hit a push and finish low.
    • I think we share the same golfing friend.  Ron totally freaks out when a mower, anywhere within 5 miles is running.  I always wave to the mower person to keep on going, get their job done.  How frustrating it must be to be a mower on a golf course... starting and stopping.  Let 'em go about their business.
    • It might keep him engaged longer. It might be worth sacrificing a bit of 'dealing with distraction learning' if so. I tend to drift in my headspace during practice. A lot. It would probably be worse with music so it's def not for me but for some the opposite is true. 
    • I think this is a mistake. I'm no Alfred Einstein, but how will you learn to deal with distractions during play if you don't learn to deal with them during practice?  I had a buddy who used to loose his mind anytime one of the course mowers was anywhere near us. Everything distracted this dude. He'd blame every bad shot on some distraction. This animal made this noise, or that player over there reacted to his/her shot, it was always something.  He was a good friend so I never said anything, but I used to think "Man, don't let things bother you. Just focus what you are doing."  Personally, I try never to admit that something distracted me. Even if it does... ESPECIALLY if it does. And I especially don't admit it to myself. If you admit you hit a bad shot because you got distracted that takes the result out of your hands. If you decide you hit a bad shot because your technique isn't engrained enough or because your skill isn't developed enough that puts it back in your hands. Think of it this way. I can control how much I practice and on what I practice. I have no control over other people on the course, or mowers, or cars driving near the course with guys doing that funny honk the horn in your backswing joke.... Woo, that's a hoot and holler! 🤪 Don't give others the power. Keep the power for yourself.  .... But again, I'm not the smartest person in the world.
