Every time this bigot loses is a victory for humanity. He represents hatred and bias.

Because...?

Quotes from Bubba? Any evidence that he represents bias and hatred other than he is from the south, and bought a cool car from a popular TV show that has a flag on the roof? I really am curious, because I have not personally seen any such evidence.

agree ... seems a bit HARSH to me (the word "hatred" is overused in society today - any use of that word in public in relation to a PGA player I would question the source)

I'm a fan...very talented golfer that gives me hope that someday someone will mistake my slice for a Bubba-esque "power fade"

I'm a fan.

Considering his background, developed his own game and earned everything he has.

Definitely didn't grow up with a silver spoon like most guys on the tour did. Public school, Community college...

He can be whiney sometimes but overall he's fun to watch.  He's a lefty so that cuts him some additional slack with me.

Always been a fan of Bubba. I find him very entertaining. I like the unique swing. He obviously has ADD and unfortunately he doesn't have it under control. I get frustrated when he gets a little too "worked up", but it will take a lot more than that for me to dislike him. From what I understand is that he and his caddies are buddies. I kind of view their interactions similar to brother/sibling interactions. I take it with a grain of salt.

He is a creative shot maker. He is lefty, uses pink clubs, buttons up his shirts, has attitude.  That makes him colorful in a sport that can be drab.  Pro golfers have a code of conduct, dress, and demeanor that is remarkably narrow.  Guys like Daly, Ricky, and Bubba greatly enrich the sport.  I miss Ray Floyd, ChiChi, and Lee Trevino.

Funny shit.  Not a fan but glad to see him in China, doing the promotions and even appearing to enjoy them. I'm sure the $2MM (or whatever it was) appearance fee helps but still, it's a commitment to promote golf across the globe and I salute him for it.

    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.

    • Just a pack of lazy ex-competitors or non-winners who are taking the easy road of mediocre playing. A player can finish DFL in all 15 tournaments and gross over $1.8 mil. And that’s playing three round tournaments. LIV honestly thinks that’s a model for growing the game? Such a shame that Cam can be on possibly the height of his career and throw away that desire that got him on the PGA TOUR in the first place. It’s sports. Professional sports. We all understand someone’s wanting to make more money and do less. But when it come to professional sports, that’s seldom a winning model or a respected one.  Bottom line is it’s the fans that have made these players wealthy. Sports produce nothing for people but entertainment. If it weren’t for our love of these games, it would be a hobby alone. Essentially these ass clowns are defecting and turning their backs on what/ who  made them able to even pursue this semi-retired, exhibition money grab. I have no respect for them. Not that it matters at all apparently.
    • You could try and mount a thick comforter behind the net as well. It should absorb any ball with little to no bounce back. But yes, slack in the net is preferred to prevent a possible "Testicular Event"....
    • This illustrates the difference between what you MUST do and what you really SHOULD do. One little nit with the underlined bit, as soon as you dropped the ball with the intention to put it into play, it is in play.  It may be in a wrong place, as it was in this case, but its in play.  There's a difference in how you handle playing from a Wrong Place, as compared to playing a ball not in play (Wrong Ball), but its really beyond the focus of this thread.
