I have no problem with calling them the forward tees, but if you still call them the women's or ladies' tees, I won't bat an eye. Honestly, I just refer to them by their color and care more about what yardage they end up making the course than what specific color I think I should be playing.

Agreed.

Although I'd like it if that terminology went the way of the dodo bird.  I often play golf with my dad and father in law and they are old enough and, lets face it, shitty enough, that they should always be playing from the very forward tees.  (I can not remember seeing either of them get a GIR on a par 4 or 5 anytime recently)  If the fact that people still think of them as the "ladies tees" is part of whats keeping them from moving up, then I'd like to remove that stigma.

But otherwise, I don't really care.  If I see traditional blue, white, then red, I still think red=ladies a lot of the time.  (But I also still like to sit "Indian style" so what the hell do I know?)

How do you feel about "uppity front tees"?

Hell, I've even worn denim late and early in the season when it's been cold

silly me - I thought a non-golfer would be someone that doesn't "play golf"

this entire thread is insulting and just ANOTHER childish "pet peeve" thread  - too bad, I think Buckeyenut started it to see if people could come with wry and funny contributions

Hope you didn't take my stuff too seriously......it's all in fun...one of my favorite people (and an absolute "golfer") never wears anything but jeans on the course.....I love him to death and give him shit all the time (and he gives it right back to me).......all good I hope

The off-topic stuff is in bold:

Enough, @Ferguson. You've never been punished nor had a post deleted for responding to someone's post with on-topic comments. You never will be.

If you wish to respond further to the moderation, send a PM as it does not warrant further public, off-topic discussion.

Unless a moderator introduces the off topic subject or content and you try to respond to it and they deem your response unacceptable even if non-offensive. On occasion, though rarely, there is no news in 'The Truth' and no truth in 'The News'. Fundamentally, this site is a business.

That's precisely what I was referring to. ;) But actually I wasn't being truthful. Criss cross apple sauce doesn't bother me anymore and I say it all the time. It used to annoy me, but I'm well past that.

Fundamentally, this site is a business.

Sure it is...and it also is not run as a democracy....and we are also free not to come on this site to read and/or post.  I don't always agree with all the evangelism here, but I very much respect that the "powers that be" give me the opportunity to voice my opinion...and even though my opinions are unpopular at times, I do not feel that Eric and Co ever make things personal and usually respond with a well-reasoned alternative opinion (although that can't be said for all folks that post, but that just comes with the territory of the internet forum).

Anyway, this is all off-topic.......so that is enough

Play golf in jeans. Play in a tank top and sandals? Fine by me (I've often been tempted to do so myself, just to mitigate my farmers tan). But I cannot possibly, under any scenario, imagine why someone would play golf in jeans.

You're in Long Beach CA too, not in farm country northeastern Colorado where in cooler weather, jeans fit the game just fine.   I can't imagine why you would find it so unthinkable.

Is there an opposite of this thread, "you are a real golfer when ....?"   That'd make a good thread but I suspect there are probably past threads on the topic.  If so, I could not find one.

Indian style? Gadzooks! Don't you know it's "criss cross apple sauce" now? [Ed. Note: barf]

That is quite possibly the worst thing I've ever heard of. I'm crying real tears as the world I used to know and love has turned into something so terrible.

"criss cross apple sauce" has been standard procedure in many schools for quite a few years now.....

I don't really like it either.

I've never actually heard it outside of people griping about it. It was Indian style when I was in school or alternatively cross-legged. I'd just tell people to sit on the floor and leave them to their own devices about how they choose to accomplish that task, haha.

My company league play started already. 9 holes after work once a week. We wear jeans at work, and if it is still cool, which it tends to be now and then, we just come from work and play golf. In the middle of the summer, we may put on shorts. This is just a podunk country public course. No locker room. If you want to change, its either in your car or in the bathroom. Jeans are very common on the course in my area.  Lots of guys are still wearing their denim shirts or uniform shirts with their name on it. Nobody cares.

You're not a real golfer if you're 50 yards from the green and you overshoot it past the back of the green and then on the very next attempt you overshoot it past the front of the green.

    • One of the things I like best about trained professionals, whether MD, PhD, Engineer, computer expert, etc. is that they they're educated enough to know what they don't know and what is and isn't their specialty. Bingo. Unfortunately, It's not just kids or young adults that are ignoring health officials. The reality of it is that this country's putative independent streak, which can be a positive force, can also be a big negative.
    • This is why they are going to have to close everything back down. Responsible adults will be punished for the actions of the irresponsible. As Bill Cosby always said, children are brain damaged. These are just overgrown children.
    • The con with hybrids though is that they go even on misshits. So you are bound to get more lost balls with it if you are not striking it perfectly. I have a 22 degree after my irons and it´s ridiculously easy to get into the air and I certainly have better percentage then my old iron 3 but the misses is close to be as dangerous as misses with a 3-wood seeing the distance they go in the wrong direction. But it´s very useful. If you have a day you can´t chip you can just use it as a chipper. Trying to recover with distance from a fairway bunker or bad lie in the rough much easier then a fairway wood or iron. From a perfectly good lie the fairway wood is preferrable though but the misses using an iron versus a wood or hybrid tend to be much less punishing as the ball will go a much shorter distance and is required to hit well to get the distance. Another thing is distance control. If no wind fine but with wind and the high trajectories it would be hard to calculate. Maybe punch shot is easy with hybrid too though... I don´t know about backspin because yet to land my hybrid on a green 😛. The holes I play I hardly ever get it for the approach shot where there is any real chance. I seldom need to hit more then 160 metres to pin. I am still not 100 % sure about the distance I have with it need more time to dial that in better. On the range it appears to be a huge difference when ripping it and on a slower swing. but I do feel it replaces my old 18 degree fairway wood quite well. Goes a bit shorter but significantly longer then my i5 d7 despite its playing as a i-3 so gapping aside I think I lucked out with the right hybrid loft in between my 3wood and irons.  25 degree hybrid probably don´t go longer then the average well hit iron 3? I am very curious to try a set of cleveland hb turbos or the like but not in the market for new clubs currently but would be interesting how they play and if they can just about eliminate all duffing which do happen on occasion... But again if that short duff short is replaced by an out of bound not much gained.  
    • I have a 21 year old "kid" and he and none of his friends can control themselves, nor care to.  It's life as usual.  Hang out at someone's house, drink, sit on the couch, pass a joint.  He didn't get this from me.  Though I did some of that stuff in my 20's... but there was no Covid-19.  And had there been I think I would have been smart enough to follow a few rules to stay safe.
