You have to count all your shots after you've putted out,

Have to argue with this one...I take great exception lol

Multiple duffs and penalty strokes for a 14 can require a recount :beer:

(If you mean having to count for double bogey or less...I agree)

I'm gonna agree with you here!  A real golfer counts 'em all.......even if it takes awhile to do so! :beer:

I guess I'm not a real golfer... even though I try to rake bunkers and fix ball marks, and cringe every time my buddy drives the cart in the wrong spot, and I don't step on putt lines... but there are times when I drop a stroke on a hole and don't count it... normally it's because I've already reached double par and I figure it's already been bad enough, why make me feel worse. But then I guilt myself into counting that stroke when my round is over because I'm only cheating myself.

Us high handicappers sometimes need to take the shoes off to count all the strokes. Real golfers, yes. Real bad golfer, yeah.

Don't do it on the green however. I try to do the advanced math on the way to the next tee.

Great point......all real golfers are not necessarily good golfers.  And all good golfers, aren't necessarily real golfers. ;-)

True! I would define a "real" golfer to be someone who knows and displays the correct etiquette! And therefore... I'm almost a real a golfer!

You carry your golf bag on your shoulder with the clubs pointing backward.

I was looking a Jones Sports bags.  They're bringing back the old-style, traditional carry bags.  But the product video shows a guy walking down the fairway carrying his back with the club heads going backwards.  So maybe it's not so wrong?

Anyways, my Jones Sports stand bag has been great.  I've had it for over 20 years now.  It still works fine except that the bottom pockets are falling off.  I was thinking about getting another one to replace it, but they only offer single strap bags.  I don't think I want to be that traditional.  Two straps makes carrying so much easier.

Hey, you're not a golfer if you haven't gotten a double digit score on a par 4 before...

I can assure you I have, more than a few times, although not for a while now, thank goodness! A 7 makes my blood boil nowadays, a think a 10 would put me in hospital!

not so serious - if you putt with your glove on.  ugh.  looks doofish.

serious - if you dont fix your ball marks.  i hate you.  die.

Disagree.  It's bad enough that I have to putt over the guys ball mark ... now you're telling me I'm going to have to chip over his body?!?!?!

BTW, is there a single member of this thread that is a golfer anymore??  I would put good money on that answer being no.

    • I guess I’m not really smart enough for this topic…Im a retired plumber …my kids now run the company…I bought the company from my dad, the plumber…I leanred early in life that plumbers always work, and that plumbers live in nice houses…I pay my bills - all of them…bought a nice house in the San Fernando Valley area of LA in 1990 for about 300K…today, thru no skill of my own, they say thru comps on my street it’s worth 3 million…should any next buyer have that price “eliminated” because the LA housing market is insane?  We were commercial plumbers - large housing tracts and big buildings…in this line, you meet a lot of contractors…more than one guy I know who couldn’t go to a traditional bank borrowed money from those in the cement business to get his 75K cement truck.  Do you know who runs the cement business in Los Angeles?  The way I see it, these students are lucky they borrowed from banks…Lou down at the union hall and his buddies in the trades that sometimes make these loans don’t do “loan forgiveness…” not sure why just being a stand up person and paying your bills is such a controversial topic…that’s it - im back to the golf talk    
    • Got my booster today.  Did not, and do not, feel a thing.  Needles must be thinner than they were when I was a kid.  Either that or I am just older and less sensitive.  Be safe folks.
    • Went four five.  Confidence is an emergent quality for me.  
    • I find that “confidence” only really comes into play in my game on the greens…I have become very good at knowing what shots I can hit and ones I cannot tee to green…high fade that starts over trouble and catches the left edge of the green leaving an uphill birdie putt?  Never could, never will…but hitting a punch shot that either catches the front of the green no matter where the pin is or at worst leaves a straightforward chip?  I can hit that shot all day, everyday… But when putting, every now and then the line and speed come together, and when happens on the first or second hole, that breeds great confidence with the flat stick and a great score is coming…opposite true as well…early three jacks just makes everything on the green a crapshoot… my 2 cents, for whatever it’s worth…      
    • I chose 8.  Of course one needs the ability and skill to play well, in any sport.  Being confident also does have a big impact on results.  Michael Jordan, Tiger and a slew of others wouldn’t have won as much as they did without confidence.
