What are the rules in here?  Are we suppose to discuss swearing and what we think of it.

Or are we just suppose to f%$king curse up a f%$king storm in here when we want to get things off our f%$king chests??

This, as it applies to golf, Tour players, your children, sporting events, your regular foursome, etc.

It's in Golf Talk. :)

In my foursome, I always scream *language* when someone curses.

They then tell me if I cant handle it, I need to go to f*@#ing church and not be on the golf course.

There's a reason Golf is a four letter word! I played an outing once for the archdiocese of Newark... Big problem because I'm a big "Jesus!" guy after a bad shot. That round it was... "Jesus!... Sorry father."

On Sunday before we tee'd off.  One of the singles introduced himself... We shook hands and I told him before we tee off... I just need to warn you that I have turrets, and it often flares up on the golf course.

He got a kick out of that, and we had a good laugh.  The rest of the day... It was on!

If I'm playing with someone's kid I'll hold back or say things quietly to myself. Otherwise I'll let the words fly. I find it better to swear than to throw your clubs.

After I hit a bad shot I let the four letter words fly, and I really have no hesitation doing so.  Its a good way to let some anger out, and as said in a previous post a lot better than throwing clubs.  I swear I hear the most colorful strings of cuss words but together on the golf course too, If you can refrain yourself from cussing on a golf course you are a saint lol.

Teeing off one New Years Day I told my regular guys that my resolution was to not curse on the mother ****ing golf course.

I let it rip after a bad shot - probably the worst mouth of anybody I play with.      All this is when I'm playing for absolutely nothing other than pride.

How the tour pro's don't absolutely melt down & go full postal on the course after blowing a shot that could cost them potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars (ok, to put it into terms we can relate to ... the difference between missing one single putt or losing a drive OB on #18 to lose by one stroke would relate to losing a NEW corvette, a NEW tournament bass boat with a V6 engine, a NEW Chevy Suburban to pull it with; and a 3rd home on a Canadian lake ... or if you prefer, a high end Ferrari)  is incomprehensibly baffling to me  (but strangely commendable - absolutely no way I could keep my composure as they do) ... it would be refreshing to see a tour guy go full retard on the course after losing by one missed shot.

I don't feel that is an environment for children either, but what do you do in that situation?  Not bring your children to anysporting events until they are a certain age?

Pretty much. You aren't out at the bars with your kids or playing poker with your buds and your kids at your side are you? There are certain things you just can't and shouldn't do with your children.

Well, that's mighty fine of you. I knew I was not the only one that felt that way. Does it lessen your fun when you play with children so you can't curse? To everyone else: You knew I couldn't hold off on this thread for long.:-D

I will yell every curse imaginable while on the course. My usual playing group does the same. Our only restriction is not yelling profanity at loud volumes while in earshot of other groups/people having coffee on their back porch/course marshals or when near the clubhouse (hole 1, 9, 10, 18).

John daly said when growing up if you didn't curse or break your clubs you didn't care enough about the game. Great minds think alike. I snapped my RBZ driver and Nike 3 wood in half in one round last year. Expensive lesson but it felt good.

I think everyone who's not a total ****ing ******* makes sure to curb their language around kids. That said, there are a lot of total ****ing *******s out there.

    • I started my son playing golf when he was 4 yrs old. Now he's 14 and 5'10. He's play'd in a youth program, local youth tournaments, and summer camps up till 2 years ago. He had been playing club travel basketball for the past 2 years. He wanted to start playing again, but he'd grown out of his junior clubs. So I bought him a used set of Callaway X-18 iron and some Callaway woods. We started going to the range a couple of weeks ago. He's had one lesson with his long time youth golf coach. He's hitting a nice draw, but just raw potential. We played a twilight round yesterday, and he surprised me. He realized all the sudden how much power he has with a driver in his hands. He started slicing his drives but keeping them in play. He even out drove me on a few holes. He was hitting greens, but his putting was all over the place. We came to a 170 yd par 3 that's over a deep ravine. He walks up to the tee, drops his ball and hits and 8 iron. He hit it pin high 10' right of the pin. I hit 7 iron short of the green, and bogied the hole. He par it:)  It's so much funner for both of us playing golf together vs. watching him play basketball and me yelling at him. 
    • No one has ever said golf was fair. Golf is the most frustrating sport I have ever played. But isn't that what makes us come back? 
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years seriously
      My current handicap index or average score is: 37
      My typical ball flight is: right to left or a heavy hook
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Anything with a hybrid I am trying to copy Moe Norman's swing within reason.  I have a lot of physical limitations in the area of coordination, balance and flexibility.  My hands shake in a fairly small way, but still 24-7.  The reason I have chosen the Moe swing is because based on everything I have read, watched and studied the swing appears to have less moving parts and is based around what would appear to be good biomechanics.  I have with an Instructor from the Graves Golf Academy who I have worked with and have several of their DVD's and training aids.  I now just need to put the pieces together.     I also use a Biomech Acculock Putter  in order to control my hand shakes on the green.  I am hoping to use both these tools to make my game both more repeatable and more consistent.   My stats are available here: https://www.gamegolf.com/player/wpgstriker I will try and post a video tomorrow and other videos as I go through the learning process for this swing.  I understand that many people don't care for Moe's swing and that's fine, but that is the one I am going for. For at least the next 12 months I am committing to it.  If you want to join me on this journey please be welcome.  If you have questions about the swing or Moe please throw them at me.  I would love to discuss.     Videos:   
    • The fickle winds of fate. F**k you leaf.  
    • I'm 6'7. Walking into a golf shop, looking at all those nice new irons and knowing that you'll never be able to play most of them really sucks. You can only look at the best forged irons. So Mitzuno blades (which I have), or a muscle back modified blade. That's it! 6 degrees upright puts tall guys in no mans land. Super upright swing too. Hitting a draw is pretty hard. High fade is my shot. I've got over 35 years of dealing with it. I would say long heavy arms don't help anything. Let's not even get into size 15 shoe designs on the clearance rack:)  I can hit long balls, but it's always been awkward to hit my short irons a solid distance. I tend to play a 3/4 swing for accuracy. Hit my head on the roof of the golf carts all the time.
