Thomas said "****". Isn't that what Crosby said or is there some other word in this discussion?

I'm sorry, but words do matter. Just because Crosby uses that word, I wouldn't want my son to use it. There are words referring to race and gender that are unacceptable under any circumstances, no matter who gives them power. 

I don't understand that argument. What does Crosby or Thomas using a word have to do with your kid? Be a parent. My kid has been aware of the fact that there are curse words since she was probably three. She knows not to say them. I'm sure you've had similar conversations with your kids.

And this isn't about race or gender. This is about the F-word.

Heck, my kids will occasionally say the "f" word*** and they're 8, 6 and 3.  :-O

***They know and sing along to songs from Hamilton, a couple of which have the word, and we just remind them that word is off limits except when they're with us listening to those songs.  That's pretty much all there is to it.

That is just not a socially acceptable word to use. My son was a stick boy for a minor league hockey team, and I told him that what he hears in the locker room, stays there. Do you use the F word around your wife and kids? Do you use it in your professional dealings? Please delete my account from your forum. I certainly don't need any advice from you on how to be a parent.

It can be. It's a ****ing word. It's in the title of books. My wife loved the book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life". There's a coloring book with the word "****" in it. Songs have the word "****" in them. Movies. Cartoons.

Who says it's not a "socially acceptable word to use"? You?

Do you say it in church? No. Probably not. At a funeral? I've heard it used at a funeral, in a rousing toast to the deceased by the wife of the deceased. Brought the house down, her story that culminated (basically) in the use of the word.

Then you've done your job as a parent. What's it to you if Thomas uses it to express himself?

Sometimes. My wife has used it sometimes, too. My daughter knows what the limits are, and likely uses it amongst her friends, but hasn't yet around us. When she's 18, or 19, or 20… I'm expecting she'll eventually say it around us.

It's just a ****ing word.

Depends on what you mean. I've said "****" around some people in professional situations. I've heard a boss (during one of the few months in my life I had a boss) say "They really ****ed that up."

It's a ****ing word. You're giving it far, far too much power, IMO.

We don't delete accounts, and I didn't give you parenting advice. I simply have a different opinion than you on this. I don't like the robots we often see on the PGA Tour. I like seeing emotions. Golf is a trying game.


BTW, @caniac6, my wife read your post and my response and thinks you might enjoy the book as much as she did.

She also said she probably says the word "f-u-c-k" more than I do.

I don't have an issue with what JT said, it was a heat of the moment thing. It shows he really cares.

Pro golfers can't win, they either get crap for not showing enough emotion or crap for showing too much.

I like seeing those emotional "outbursts" because as golfers we've all felt those same feelings, good or bad.

In a social setting it's probably one of the more popular words to use ;-)

Yes, depends on what I'm talking about, what emphasis I'm trying to convey, sometimes I just get angry and say a "bad" word, it's about context. I would watch PG-13 and some R rated movies with my sons when they were 12 and 10 years old. I told them it wasn't appropriate for them to use those words until they're older and my 16 year old only rarely says it front of us, mostly if he's quoting someone or telling a joke.

My boss/business partner is female and swears more than I do. With clients that I don't know, obviously not, like I said it's about context.

Same here....and she's Canadian!

    • Thanks for all the advice, everyone. I had a chance to inspect the clubs before purchase, and all looked fine from what I could see .. I was wondering what I should be looking out for at the hosel and club head to try and identify shoddy manufacturing. Sounds like it's just a really extreme outlier that I've picked up though. The woods have been OK, but I did get noticeably less distance (even as a beginner) compared to some of the hire clubs I was hitting, so I think I might write these off entirely and get a new set.  I'm tossing up between a new set of the wilson SGI's, the spalding elite's, callaway's strata range, or a used set of Callaway XR's. Unfortunately nothing else around in my price range in AU (for a lefty)..
    • I've never really thought about "no sixes". I've had quite a few rounds without sixes and quite honestly, when I read it, my thoughts were, no problem. So, Saturday, I bogied the first par 5, #2. No sixes the rest of the way, but now, it's on my mind. Carding a 6 on a par 5 is like kissing your sister. And it was a 3 putt. ugh Since I'm not gifted in the technology department, I'll probably have to list off the holes instead of pasting the card. lol
    • I would be pretty shocked if he ever has a season where he wins 2 majors and finishes T4 and 2nd in the other 2 majors. Just because that's so difficult to do, it's a fluke for basically anyone in golf. I think he'll probably get back to a top 5-10 golfer at some point, though. I think golf media has generally underestimated how good Spieth was, because he doesn't have the distance or flash of someone like Rory or DJ. But Spieth, on his game, is as good of as of a ball striker as anybody out there (sans Tiger, I suppose). It wasn't his putting or short game that made him special, it was his iron play. I think that will come back at some point. From an interview I heard with him on the No Laying Up podcast, he believes he's close. I do have some concern, though. That same interview made me think that he's not being a stupid monkey. He seemed really down the rabbit hole with his swing. I guess you have to be if your going through a slump like he is and trying to make changes. It worries me, though.
    • walking has a lot fewer cup holders I don't really consider golf to be much of a sport in terms of fitness or 'typical' athleticism.  I tend to call it an activity, not a sport frankly.  I play for relaxiation and because it's just a lot of fun for me. If I want to exercise, I go and exercise.  That's weights, cardio, yoga, or more intense sports.  (however, if one has nothing else, or can't handle 'regular' exercise for any reason, then I applaud them for using golf for that purpose - even a long walk is better than sitting on the couch). The biggest benefit I personally seem to get from walking is that I tend to walk right to my ball and find it easier - which is weird to me.  But I guess if I have a feel for my distances, then the act of walking must calibrate better to me for finding the darn thing (rather than marking a line and driving to it.)  Also, I tend to just play to my ball and help the others less than I would if I drive.
    • Kind of related. Talking to someone I was paired up with, and he said his club recently bought carts and it's not the old timers that were using them, they still walked, but the 20 and 30 year olds.
