Farting on the tee box

Recommended Posts

Micah    0
Yesterday I played a round at Stoneridge in Northern Idaho with my dad. We play pretty fast so there was a lot of waiting and play throughs due to a packed course. As we were waiting on the 3rd tee box for the foursome in front of us to tee off something hilarious happened. One of the guys (he looked like a biker with the handle bar mustache) stepped up, took a huge swing and on his down swing he ripped a loud, greasy fart. It sounded wet and all his buddies were laughing as were me and my dad. Whats worse is his shot sliced hard right and hit the side of a condo that lined the fairway. Being the smart ass that I am I yelled "hey buddy you need some toilet paper?". He snapped his neck back at me and gave me the finger..lmao Ithought he was going to charge at me. Lol:-D

I let one go on a par 3 last week. It was during my backswing on the teeshot, and I had to check my swing as my Uncle and I just lost it laughing. Haha.

With that said, I wouldn't say something like that to someone I don't know. Laughing is one thing, heckling a big biker guy for farting after he hits a house with his tee shot is a good way to get your ass kicked.

In the film Bucket List I believe it was Jack Nicholson that said"  "Never trust a fart".

I wonder if anyone has a pre shot routine that includes a fart if they are playing alone? :-D

dunno...I've seen a number of "grunters", but no "farters". I guess its not much different than weight lifters expelling a little breath before their move only using a different orifice.

Chuckle.   I can't say I have not farted on a tee box before but this one sure tops it.

You should given him a golf tip - "It's all that tensing up that is causing you to fart as you swing."   I wonder if he'd still give you the finger ... LOL.

Had he let it go on the through swing he could have added up to 15 yards on that slice piercing the condo!

I have had to pause momentarily before tee shots to let one out silently - otherwise, it's coming out at 80 decibels during my swing.

Nothing worse than a creaky tee box.

He had a funky swing to boot. It was like Charles Barkley meets Tom Gainey meets Happy Gilmore lol...

    • Hi everyone,

      Attached is my winter training plan (The attahcement is coloured in its full glory).  TI am working on changing my swing to a new style (Moe Norman style single plane) so need to work on putting, full swing and pitching.  I have set it up as block periodized with 7 week mesocycles.  In the weeks that say technical those will be primarily slow work trying to hammer down the finer points of the skill followed by a technique week where I add more constraints to make it more game like followed by a week that will primarily game like with lots of constraints (ie diff targets, hitting it shorter longer etc.)  My chipping and pitching is the best part of  my game so it got one cycle while full swing and putting got two.  Putting is the worst part of game so thats why put it closest to the start of the season so I could peak that right before the season starts.

      If you are somebody who knows about periodization or just have some advice on whether what I have done here will work to improve all aspects of my game in the long term I would appreciate it.  I've thrown everything I know about periodization, distributed learning and interleaving at it from my teaching background.  I'm hoping others might give me their honest opinion on my plan.  I am only going on what I have read and researched so any comments and criticism is welcome.

      Thanks. Copy of Annual-Competitive-Plan-Blank-Template.xlsx
    • Let me offer a couple of suggestions that may not make sense at first. I do not think it is a good idea for heavier people to run. One it is hard on the body. You are pounding down on the knees and joints. Believe it or not you can increase your resting heart rate by deep breathing. Mine is between 38 and 43. I do Yoga and practice Deep breathing. Now I have been doing this for many years, but I suggest going to youtube and find a video on deep breathing  and start a practice. If you want to drop some weight change your diet. Eat more salads and plant based foods. Hope this helps
    • I meant that my hands don't have to follow each other and aren't locked together when off the club. I was able to roll my left wrist a bit over the top and it is not affecting my right hand. I am, however not locking my fingers as much anymore. They're still locked, but not as pronounced.
    • iPhone 8 will be on display in stores tomorrow. Also ATP podcast and their food talk, thought I'd post it.
    • If your hands move independently that could cause some inconsistencies in your swing?
