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.

    • Day 170.  I got home way too late, but remembered the challenge so I'm doing some of UGP's stretches.  Probably good given how little I moved today.  (Incidentally, earlier today I saw my future golf room for the first time, better than the previous one!  Ten days until setup!)
    • Almost always putt. Either with my putter or a club from PW-7 iron using the same putting stroke depending the pin location and grass condition. 
    • Yeah you must’ve missed that. It was posted earlier by @fredf then reposted by @Missouri Swede.
    • This is good stuff and interesting to hear from someone that plays on such big greens. I have never had that luxury/challenge, depending on the green. I find it so interesting that some people love partial shots (could be full swing but reduced power), and others don't want any part of it. For me, in that same situation of 100 yards with back edge at 110, this is how I would take it. Full shots are 80-85 yards for 53o, 95-100 yards for PW, 110 yards for 9I. I would almost always take a 9I into this green, unless there is serious trouble long. A 85-95% 9 iron is going to leave me on the green almost all of the time, barring L-R miss. If I hit it super pure, or I have some extra adrenaline pumping, I'm over for sure, but close. If it is sloping toward the back, then its a pitching wedge, and an almost certain downhill putt, but that's the nature of the beast. I use a Garmin approach S20, which is fairly basic, but has done a really good job of telling me center, front and back of the greens when I have played. When I know the pin layout for the day, I do cater to that, but if I have any doubt, or it is scary at all, I play for the center
    • I have gone through the replies and the main claim is 'Serious misconduct'. I get that but it seems like a grey area. open to interpretation.  I can't find any section of the rules that describe the scenario that i provided and the rules are very specific in terms of objects, balls hit, touched, where participants stand, act etc. There are other reasons the said example could count as legitimate play. Perhaps Player B is putting away from the hole because he wants an easier uphill putt to finish the hole. Also if  Player B's ball is directly opposite Player A's ball and putts it pass the hole and just pass his partners mark it is an over hit and the putt coming back is going to show the line for the next putt. Misconduct or inherent part of the game. Have we lost the freedom to decide on the direction of the next stroke. NB. The 4BBB I am referring to would be part of a Team Stableford competion. So there is no conceding putts involved.   Ahhh I have found some clarity. Point 7.  1.2a/1 - Meaning of Serious Misconduct The phrase “serious misconduct” in Rule 1.2a is intended to cover player misconduct that is so far removed from the expected norm in golf that the most severe sanction of removing a player from the competition is justified. This includes dishonesty, deliberately interfering with another player’s rights, or endangering the safety of others. The Committee must determine if the misconduct is serious considering all the circumstances. Even if the Committee determines that the misconduct is serious, it may take the view that it is more appropriate to warn the player that a repeat of the misconduct or similar misconduct will result in disqualification, instead of disqualifying him or her in the first instance. Examples of actions by a player that are likely to be considered serious misconduct include: Deliberately causing serious damage to a putting green. Disagreeing with the course setup and taking it on himself or herself to move tee-markers or boundary stakes. Throwing a club towards another player or spectator. Deliberately distracting other players while they are making strokes. Removing loose impediments or movable obstructions to disadvantage another player after that other player has asked him or her to leave them in place. Repeatedly refusing to lift a ball at rest when it interferes with another player in stroke play. Deliberately playing away from the hole and then towards the hole to assist the player’s partner (such as helping the player’s partner learn the break on the putting green). Deliberately not playing in accordance with the Rules and potentially gaining a significant advantage by doing so, despite incurring a penalty for a breach of the relevant Rule. Repeatedly using vulgar or offensive language. Using a handicap that has been established for the purpose of providing an unfair advantage or using the round being played to establish such a handicap. Examples of actions by a player that, although involving misconduct, are unlikely to be considered serious misconduct include: Slamming a club to the ground, damaging the club and causing minor damage to the turf. Throwing a club towards a golf bag that unintentionally hits another person. Carelessly distracting another player making a stroke.
