Why is there a moron in every group that has to say "One" and then laugh when you knock the ball off the tee?  It's so freaking annoying and with my pre-shot routine I knock the ball off the tee at least once or twice a round.

Once or twice a round ? If you find the comments annoying, the easiest fix might be to develop a pre-shot routine that doesn't include hitting the ball with your golf club.

OK smarty pants how about this one. You smack a ball and it goes awry. MIRACULOUSLY, it bounces onto the top of a tee that was stuck in the ground on the ladies tee.  (Or a tee box on an

Perfect fairway lie. Hit it massively fat. "Well out!" Chortle. Die die die die die die.

Once or twice a round ? :-\

What if you're Michael J Fox?

It doesn't matter if they are saying it to me or somebody else, it's just such an old "joke" that it just can't be funny.  And why in the world would I change my pre-shot routine?

well, couldnt you change something so that you dont knock the ball over once or twice a round?  i think that would be excessive for most people.

Somehow you've developed a habit of touching the ball with your club before your swing.  If you're hitting the ball that often on the tee, my concern would be that it could lead to you inadvertantly touching it off the tee as well.  Not a good habit, pre-shot routine or not.

No, it's only on the tee shot.  I align the logo of the ball on my target line as many people do with putts.  Then approach the ball from behind and use my club to spin the ball on the tee if I need to adjust the line. So it's not as though I'm hitting the ball with a waggle at address or anything.

Just looking at the subject line, I thought this post was about hole in one.   I guess the joke was on me, ha, ha, ha.

About the "1" joke, it's almost an instinctive response, i.e, people with weaker mind can't help it.   I must have done it a few times to my wife and I am sure she's sick of it.   Since it isn't helping our marriage, I will fight the urge to say it next time.   Instead, I will  have to come up with better lines. :-D

Seems like your preshot routine is almost asking for this. If I was playing with you, after your second time knocking the ball off the tee, I'd give you a "ONE" and chuckle with the rest of our foursome.

Ahhhh, got it.

Gotta say, I've never seen anyone do that before.  About the closest is someone tapping the ball to lower the tee a little.  Looks cool when they pull it off, but kind of silly if they don't.....

I can't remember the last time someone in my group accidentally hit a ball off the tee, and that's spanning at least 50 rounds (probably north of 3,000 tee shots). If it's happening to you once or twice a round, it would seem to me that you deserve whatever mocking comments you get.

Oh no... There's a guy at my club that aligns the ball on the tee like that (he then proceeds to spray it everywhere...). I hope you don't waste as much time as him realigning the logo once or twice every single tee box. To me, that practice is just plain silly...

I'm with you on this one.

I saw a "Playing Lessons with the Pros" where someone was doing this - Ian Poulter I think.

I'll bet he didn't knock the ball off the tee in the process.

Touche!

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.

    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
