You got me.. or I'm going to call bs on this one!

It's the only reason I get cable TV ... The Golf Channel !      I went into a state of deep depression when Holly Sonders left TGC ... its been a couple months now and it's only recently I can muster the strength to get out of bed in the morning

What on earth, in ur mind,  is wrong with a ball retriever?  Man, i can collect a dozen beauties from the pond, if i have time.  Usually the Marshall is pushing too hard to keep moving to permit  me to go fishing.

Well, i totally DISAGREE with U.

And i always carry a big UMBRELLA. That 'wrong' too?

I'm sorry to say . .but yes, the big umbrella puts you further in the wrong.  If you use it to keep the sun off you . . .that's at least 3 times as bad.

You are not a real golfer if you yell and scream when you make a birdie/eagle or chip in/hole out from a bunker/fairway.

A high five is OK for something exceptional but no need for anything vocal that players not in your group will hear.

Don't start me on "eagles" on 400 yard par 5s or 240 yard par 4s.

What if it's uphill? You're not a real golfer if you leave your wedge by the side of the green. Amateur move. Sure buddy I saw your wedge, it was right by the green back there in the same spot it's still at. You have to always borrow another club from somebody's bag. Oh you want to use my 4 hybrid again? Well why the hell do you have a 4 iron in your bag then? (This does not count as far as trying out friends new toys) More serious, you don't rake bunkers, fill divots or fix ball marks. Seriously just quit playing golf.

If you ask, "What did you shoot on that hole?" or say "I shot 5 there".

One of my work buddies in our scramble on Friday after a hole: "how many hits did we have?"

I sometimes grab a hot dog and chips or something like that at the turn but I wouldn't go much past that.

I don't know about that one. Why aren't you a golfer because you don't watch The Golf Channel?

Your not a real golfer if ,... You have to count all your shots after you've putted out, You mark your scorecard whilst stood on the green, Leave your bag a mile from where you need it! you don't let me play through!

If your wife even ASKS what you want to do on Fathers Day weekend!

Ha! Wifey asked what I want for Christmas this year. I told her I want to go play Pasatiempo in Monterrey with my buddy Darren. She asked "so you want to take a family trip to Monterrey?" Umm, no. (She's not a golfer.)

After reading this strict list. I'm happy and proud to call myself a non-golfer. I'm just trying to have a good time out there.

    • Last Monday I experienced a very slow front 9, taking at least 2 1/2 hours. 3 riders and 1 walking, and we, a twosome, waited at every shot, except the tee, where they all teed off before we could get close enough to ask to play through. The walker wasn't very good, often hitting his drive 100-150 yards. They all played from the blues, and the walker would tee off last. The riders would take off, often leaving the walker behind to fend for himself. Finally, after a couple of holes, one of the carts would hang back, help look for a ball, etc. When they reached the green, the walker would often park his clubs on the wrong side, and after holing out, would retrieve his clubs and have to walk back across the green to get to the next tee. Did I mention the walker also moved in slow motion? Conserving energy, maybe? At the 10th, a par 5, while we're waiting to take our approach shots to the green, the walker holes out, shake hands, and heads back to the clubhouse. After that, we never came close to catching them again. Finished in 4 hours total.  
    • I break 90 now and then, and I think I am starting to notice the commonalities. 1. Don't go OB.  Just don't.  If it's a reasonable likelihood, think about club choice.  I often play a 310 yard hole with OB all the way down the right, and it's the first hole.  It's also a little downhill.  A bad 5 wood gets me within a 9 iron or less, a good one a sand wedge, or even lob wedge.  I don't need driver on that hole.  Without the OB, I think I'd play driver, but first tee, there's just no real benefit. 2.  When driver is the club, hit it.  Closer is better.  But see #1. 3.  Get out of the sand in one.  To anywhere.  Green is better, out is critical. 4.  If I'm within 10 feet of the green, I need to be thinking up and down.  Won't always happen, but those are important shots.  And where I get a lot of my pars, "almost" GIRs. 5.  I agree with not trying the hero shot, but not wimping out, either.  Know what you can do, and go for it. 6.  Three putts are bad, but don't beat yourself up over a three putt from 50 feet.  (Actually don't beat yourself up over anything, let it go, and move on.) 7.  I have found in my best rounds, I block out a lot of the noise.  Take a breath before each shot.  Focus.  Not every second, but in the time around the shots. 8.  If something feels wrong, back off.  The grass grabs on the backswing, stop!  It should not happen a lot, but once your head is unhappy, bad things are in store. 9.  Be aggressive, but not stupid.  If you can carry 220 on your best shot, and you need 210, don't do it.  I think you need to have a 80 or maybe even 90 percent probability of success.  The two shots that failure is likely to cause eat into your margin pretty quickly.      
    • Nope. That is troll-level phrasing there.
    • Touche.  On the "no" voter thing.  But like I said... feeding the sharks.  I'm trying to find a middle ground for you guys but it seems like human lives come in second place to your need for total accuracy and fear of inconvenience.
