Oh please. Like none of you have ever stabbed someone on the golf course or the movie theater or the grocery store or church.

Stuff happens.

Seriously. Damned 'PC' culture of whiners.

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

Still extreme. Just not in comparison. Hitting into people to 'send a message' is potentially reckless and douchey.

Stabbing is just insane.

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.

That's a very good question.

I make it a point to stab a person weekly just so I don't get rusty. 

Careful. Your stabbing form may not get rusty with such practice but make sure you clean your blade carefully afterward otherwise it could get a little rusty...

 

Seriously though, there are some people (this 61-y/o muppet, for example) who're beyond belief.

I prefer a 5 iron for slow players. I don't have to work in so close, I have a better chance of keeping my golf duds clean

That's the problem with modern drivers!  Hollow, pingy and not good for assaulting people.   Back in my day, a good persimmon to someone's head was all we needed.  Especially walking uphill in the snow 5 miles to school (both ways of course!)

Yeah, that was a joke. I play golf to piss myself off not others.

 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

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."

As a 60-year old, moderately competent player, I am neither close to a dirt nap (as far as I know), nor do I think I'm an "old dude."   However, THAT old dude is nuts!

Do we know for sure that everyone in the foursome is young(er)? I have a feeling that at least some of the foursome might be the same age as the perpetrator.

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

Just like most people who own guns don't use them for murders or mass murders. :-P

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.

John

 

Any old Kevlar isn't that good against sharp knives, just make sure you get the correct material vest. :-D

 

This material works better, but I'm not sure the company is still in business or not.

You'd need a high density poly.

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.

I actually fell asleep in my cart with my legs sticking out the front of the cart a little while ago, and one of the foursome in front of me drove back down the fairway and woke me up asking if I would like to play through. :-D

This is one of the reasons I decided to concurrently restart some of my other more "exciting" sports. . . :-D

Sorry, should have assumed that given the general thread response, but some on the site in other threads have indicated they aren't against 'sending an airmail message' to slow players. :beer:

This is just the usual joke, but as far as I remember never actually implemented on purpose. The key phrase is "on purpose".

I don't know why the world has to be so uncivilized.

When there's a dispute at my club - whether it be slow play, hitting into another group, unruly behavior, or accusations of outright cheating - I'd have the opposing parties participate in a duel. But instead of standing back to back with the old flintlock pistols of yesteryear, today's duels would be settled with tasers. Golf is a gentleman's game after all.

And let's face it, if watching two hotheads twitching and convulsing on the ground while soiling themselves isn't entertaining to the rest of the club membership, I don't know what is!

Why use a knife when we have golf clubs.  My putter would work better.
 

... or a SW if one wants a heavy impact.   Use a driver if striking reach is important.   From a distance, throw golf balls.   What's up with carrying a knife to a golf course?   :hmm:

It was established in an earlier post that the new 460cc heads are not dense enough to do any damage. I would think it would be like hitting someone with a hollowed out softball on the end of a stick. . . Not really, but that's kind of the impression I got reading about the effectiveness of a modern driver in a fight. :-D

Yeah, kind of like CCW on a golf course. :-D

Although, it sounded like a "pocket knife" which brings to mind a Swiss Army knife or something. . .

Driver does seem inadequate since it's got a big head on it but a 3 iron for those who carry would do just fine I imagine. Better yet, just get a cattle prod. It can fit in the bag and doesn't count against you as a club. A lil ol zap to the zipper fly area ought to adjust a persons attitude right quick.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
