Sadly, its just another sign of the times......The 'I want it NOW!!!' crowd.  Run red lights because you don't want to wait, pass on the right in the bike lane when someone is turning left, pull out in front of someone when there is at least a 1/2 mile gap after them, only to turn at the next intersection.  Play golf like it was an Internet game with high speed access....me, Me, ME. No, no, no, not you, ME.

 Well you have to stop and think, at 61 years of age this guy does not have all that much time to play golf before he takes a dirt nap. Geez, just let him though. Using a knife is a little over the top but there were times where our group had a shouting match with the group in front of us that was a hole and a half behind by the 8th hole.

Seems like letting people play through is always a good policy when there's a significant gap in front of your party.

Off topic, but somewhat relevant to current gun control laws just enacted in my state: I just hope that this crime doesn't invoke some "slow play" advocates from saying that all pocket knives should be banned. Seems like some would think the pocket knives are the problem. :-P

Would have been better if one of the guys he tried to stab pulled a gun on him....

That would have been appropriate only if he tried to steal their clubs

What I want to know is . .how does a guy so unhinged that he stabs somebody for slow play make it to age 61 without having stabbed a bunch of people already?  Maybe we should check under his porch. 

 

edit - I always have a pocket knife on me at all times . . but it's not fer stabbin'.

Stabbing someone over slow play seems a bit extreme, hitting into them not so much. 

:)

I usually sit in the middle of the fairway with my legs crossed or act like I'm taking a nap waiting on the slow group in front of me.  If that doesn't work I just skip the hole and leave them in the dust.

Our group got held up yesterday(3 ball) by a very slow 5 ball,the course was virtually empty and they had 2 clear holes in front of them.

It took them 3 holes to take the hint from the marshall but during these 3 holes I went 7,8,7.

No stabbings.

Old dudes are crazy, man. They don't give a shit, and honestly I think many of them believe that a judge will say, "Oh, he's just an old man. Here's a fine and don't stab anyone again, sir."

I haven't been in a fight in seventeen years, but on two occasions over the past ten years old guys have initiated confrontations with me. I'm not a big guy at 5'6", 150, so maybe they feel emboldened. But I will flat out whip your 75 year old ass, crazy old dudes.

One other mild confrontation (not one of the above) was at the grocery store. I was buying juice and cigarettes. The cashier has to go to the service area to get the smokes so I was waiting with my juice and this old guy behind me says "You know you can buy those at the service desk." And he's got this angry look in his eyes because I'm delaying his purchase of bread and milk. Yes, bread and milk, like a goddamn old man cliche.

"I didn't know that. Could I also buy my juice over there?"

He looks puzzled, but still angry. "I don't know," he says.

"Then I guess you're going to have wait, cowboy."

Man, he didn't like that. But I think I'll just be polite next time, since I don't want to get stabbed.

I have literally laid down on the tee while I waited.... I've laid down on the golf cart seat multiple times while parked in the middle of the fairway. Neither of those had any effect though. Tonight it took almost 2 1/2 hours for me to play nine holes, but I was stuck behind a HS golf match so there was nothing I could do about it.

The guy should have threatened the slow group with a gun, and claimed to be a cop!  He'd be a hero.

HaHaHa!

I was thinking the same thing.  Maybe they can get that retired Oklahoma fire marshal to be the course marshal.  He draw down on anyone in those slow groups.

Golf is becoming increasingly more dangerous these days.  Gotta pick up a kevlar polo... lol.

I just want to know how the man got close enough to stab someone in the first place. I mean come on, it's a knife, not a sword. I have 14 weapons in my bag that have a reach advantage over a knife.

The victim's friend shouldn't have tackled the old guy. What he should have done is grabbed two irons and went into an Anakin Skywalker fit of dual wielding light saber rage to avenge his fallen comrade.

    • Worrying about your swing mid round usually doesnt work out well. Especially if youre in a match or tournament. When I played a ton I would work on my swing/swing thoughts on the course during the week and on the weekend rounds or tournament I would just play with what Ive got. If you practice enough your swing will evolve for the better.
    • If I ever get to the point where everything is automatic and I don't have to actively think about it I'm sure emotion would help, but for me the madder I get the harder it is to focus on my swing techniques..
    • FWIW that wasn't a comment per se, I was just trying to help others who find one topic find the other.
    • If I was playing against you on the course and noticed you were easily frazzled, well I wouldnt stop the commentary. To get better at dealing with this, you might want to play for some cash with your friends. Spice up the round a little. Emotions are a big part of golf. Being able to deal with and react to a double bogey before you hit your next tee shot usually results in a better score. Same thing when making a birdie or hitting a great shot. Even Tiger and Dustin walk up to the green like theyve got a huge (you know what) after stuffing it tight to the pin. You certainly can use emotion to fuel your golf game.  My buddy is a scratch golfer and absolutely hates giving me strokes. He will beat me 7/10x if we are not playing for cash. When there is money on the line he is my little bitch and sometimes I beat him straight up.    It doesnt have to be a ton of money, but just enough to make you a little uncomfortable with losing it. That can be a $10 nassau, $20 match play for 18 holes, a game of $5 wolf can really make you sweat. Just to get your emotions going. Thats what will really help you fine tune your game and get the best out of the swing you have that specific day.
    • Thank you! I considered the Bat Caddy models and definitely considered the Alphord eWheels V2. I did want a cart that had a swivel front wheel for sharper turns and less wear on the front wheel. I could have bought a cart like that and added the V2 but thought this was the easiest for me. The cost would have been comparable. There were a couple of other carts on the long list but their prices were simply too high for me to consider at this time. Please edit away. I thought I'd put the name of the cart in the title but I must have missed doing so. Sorry. And, in case anyone were to wonder - I have no financial interest whatsoever in any of the cart manufacturers. I will see what I can do about a few more images but I didn't want to go overboard. Indeed I did and I looked very closely at your suggestion. It was a good one and had some great reviews so thanks again for that.
