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?

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.

    • I believe I heard Joe Rogan talk that some MMA fighters use it during training. Not heavy use, but a lower dosage, and there seems to be benefit. I can't remember his exact quote on it, but I believe it was about marijuana since he is big on its legalization.   
    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
