Other than an occasional (or more) "Oh crap" as soon as I hit it I don't do any talking...Just hoping.

I might say "thank you" or "about time" when I finally sink a putt for par after a string of bogeys, doubles, triples, etc.

Didn't answer the poll, since you didn't include my answer.  I don't talk to my ball.  Just never got in the habit.  I talk to myself sometimes while the ball is in the air, like "Come on, hit the damn ball!" or similar, but that's about it.

I don't talk to my ball except maybe, at times, when it begins to fade.  You know you can talk to a fade, but draws are as waste of breath (yes I know Lee T. said this first but I like it).

Anyway I don't really ever talk to my ball but sometimes my ball has me talking to myself.

I would fall into the "about freakin time" category when I finally make a decent putt.

[QUOTE name="David in FL" url="/t/70960/when-do-you-talk-to-your-ball-the-most#post_916782"]   Only when I address it...... ......Hello, ball. [/QUOTE] Sadly, we're lacking a "ha-dump-bump" smiley.

That would be incredibly handy. Maybe a little snare drum or something. Or a Fozzie Bear icon. :-D

I want to change my answer from after it has stopped to while it is in the air.  After some reflection, I realized that I do sometimes coax the ball while it is in flight ("Come on, baby, get over the trap, GET OVER THE TRAP!)  After it has stopped, it would be more like I'm cussing myself (quietly of course!) since it isn't really the ball's fault.  Most times I just watch the ball flight in stunned silence, then cuss myself under my breath as needed, which led to my poll answer.

My ball and I are no longer on speaking terms. My DT Solo caught me (in a moment of weakness) looking at pictures of the E6 on the web. I even tried the "really, it's not you, it's me" line but it was too late, the damage had been done, and we've decided its best for the children that we part as friends now rather then drag this out any longer. What can I say, but I've always had commitment issues when it comes to long-term relationships and just not sure my old ball understands me anymore...HAHA!

"Stay There"

"Be Right"

"Come Back"

"Keep Coming"

"Hang On"

"Go!"

"STOP!!!"

"Get Down!"

"Get Up!"

"Be Nice"

"Sit Down"

These are but a few of the choice phrases that my ball and I use to communicate.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
