The Best (worst) Spelling and Grammar Errors Thread

In a recent newspaper article a sponsor of a local 1 mile charity run was listed as "Coka Cola"! How does one misspell Coca Cola? I suppose it's because the shorthand is "Coke"!?

I was traveling for work and started noticing road construction signs.  As I drove closer they had a flashing sign that read right lane closed 6/5 threw 6/8. Makes me curious how far and why June 5th threw June 8th. Haha.

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

I guess that's like having a shouldemer separation! 

And before I get flamed for going OT, this is still a media mistake! Recently, there has aired in our local market a television ad for a local restaurant. The camera shot shows their "Surf 'n Turf", in which a large fly is seen crawling around on the lobster tail! 

YAAAAGGGHHHHHH! Doesn't anybody look at these things before airing them?!  BTW, that ad has been pulled!

Maybe the writer is referring to delay caused when playing golf on the computer, you know by hitting the "undo" button???

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

It's generally wise to, when making wisecracks about spelling, to watch your own spelling.

Huh? I wasn’t making a comment on his spelling. Just opening up a possibility that there might possibly be a way a 4 year old could possibly spell the word 😁

I didn't say you were making a comment on Scott's spelling. Both of you were, however, "making wisecracks about spelling."

I had a whattsapp message the other day, which I believe is true. It is a picture of a group of children, all them dressed as elves apart from one. The school requested the children come dressed as elves for a school play, but the one dressed incorrectly was dressed as Elvis Presley.

There are a bunch that could fit into that category. 

Toe the line (not tow) is one that comes to mind.

Last week in the local paper, "The Burger Guyz" had an article rating another upscale burger joint that are now all over the area. The description of one burger included the type of cheese that was on it, "Monetary Jack"! Hmmmm, sounds expensive! No wonder the plate was priced at $12!

 Biride?

(Took a couple times to type that—my iPad kept wanting to correct it.)

It's the European Tour, so maybe he's playing in a country where he wins a bride if he makes the putt, and they misspelled bride? 🙂

    • Birdied #13 at Quail Brook, which is new. Blocked tee shot right which ended up being fine because I didn't hit it well enough to reach the fescue. Had 110 to the flag and was ready to hit a 3/4 GW to it (even tagged the club) but felt the wind pick up behind me so I decided to club down to the SW and hit it to 4'. Lipped out a 15-footer on #17 for birdie for a tap-in par that also would have been new.
    • I've had a couple of good shots since the last time I posted, 1 a 90 yard approach that I manufactured with my gap wedge that I knocked to about 18 inches, 1 a ~140 yard 8 iron that I got to about 3 feet (pictured), but this week my best shot was a 60 yard pitch. It wasn't anything special but I did hit it out of a divot, so that's what I'm more proud of. Plus, i didn't really have any memorable shots this week.
    • Just a  follow up, I had the best lessons ever on gears with the best instructor! Wish I would’ve made the drive earlier in the year but put it together during a golf trip. Gears was incredible to see your swing in 3d with all the necessary data. I’ve had very few formal lessons in the past and a couple online but nothing compared to working with Erik. He made it  very comfortable and relaxed, patient with all my  questions and showed some swing comparisons of pros swings.    Our main focus was getting the pelvis to move in a better pattern and when he first pushed on my hip with that pvc going back it was like a “wow” moment. And to see the affects in real time just made it quicker to adapt and learn how to find it again, however, even without gears I’m sure it would’ve been an awesome lesson..it’s just nice for some players to see the facts, no debate… At the end of the 1st session I was shocked at the video seeing my pelvis move better, hips open, no early extension. I was literally like I can’t believe that video capture is me! I’m glad I had a second session the following morning, just to reinforce the earlier ideas and work on the next piece to complete the movement, and we still had plenty of time to mess around with lower priority ideas for later. I left that afternoon armed with a practice plan, he took extra time to show me what to look for on my own video and I got a copy of LSW. We’ll continue on evolvr for checkups until another road trip for sure! I also just ordered the stack system with his discount code to work on some speed training as well.    Just wanted to share my appreciation for all Erik’s help and anyone finding there way here like I did over the winter to give it a try!
