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.

    • Gotcha. Don't remember it being that short in Paige episode (the only other one I watched in it's entirety), but to be fair I wasn't paying close attention to the hole lengths. 😜
    • Probably relative to the other courses he has played in the break 50 series. He's done them all from the front tees.
    • So this wasn't a bad watch. For a guy pushing age 80 he strikes the ball well. I mean, if I am doing what he is doing 30 years from now, count me in. Imma pass on that putting stroke though.... wow. That's saying something with my putting skills. Not making fun of it but it's almost like he had to keep the putter from falling out of his hands after impact every time. Not sure if that's a recent thing but it plays out like some neurological condition.   BDC claims 'it's a hard course' to break 50, and then proceed to play putt-putt tees with 320-yard par 5s.. lol. Dood drove almost every par 5 from the tee. Anyway, not exactly the 'greatest round of golf that has ever been played' as expectedly self-advertised by 45, but I've certainly seen worse by far. 
    • Long time since I've posted. I've been working through some really hard swing changes and admitting that I needed to nearly start over to actually get better. I shot almost the best 9 hole 44 of my life this morning while actually playing by the rules. I'm trying to legitimize my golf game, keep a real handicap and work past being just a weekend hack to someone who can maybe play actual bogey golf somewhat regularly. Had a couple disastrous double bogeys that kind of blew up my score. Favorite shot was an absolutely pured baby draw 5i about 180yds on a par 3 with a 2 putt for par.
