  1. Absolutely, the whole gateway drug theory is complete bs.
  2. No, in fact he should get an extra medal if he was competing while high and won.
  3. man i gotta try this sometime.
  4. drove in to a tree once and cut my finger on the steering wheel somehow but that's about it.
  5. Very rarely will I improve a lie or position, have to be in a special mood where I'm just tired of dealing with stupid sh*t. I don't get these militant rules officials on the course though. God forbid I drop a ball somewhere in the vicinity of where I lost one and play on, or if I'm a few inches closer to the hole after a drop, or if i feel like hitting another ball after a bad shot etc. I'm out there to have fun, don't really care what I shoot, and don't really care what any other golfers think.
  6. Some people are just complete a*sholes. I remember a couple years ago I was about to tee off on the 1st hole when a group was coming towards the 9th green which is near the 1st tee box on the right. I am about to hit when a dude darts his cart out right in front of me and stops to play his ball. I back off and wait for him to play, when he sees me and starts shouting "WTF ARE YOU LOOKING AT, DON'T YOU F*CKING ROLL YOUR EYES AT ME!" before hitting angrily and storming off in his cart. Somebody must have had a bad front 9.
  7. Exactly, I haven't bought tees in years. My course also gives out tees in the cart so that's 5 tees every time I ride. But I can get by with broken tees 80% of the time.
  8. The point is not "don't concentrate and immerse yourself in your game", but "don't obsess over it to the point that it becomes a chore". I see way too many people who act as if it's their god given right to play perfectly and get pissed off when they don't. In that vain, relax and don't take it too seriously...
  9. my clubs are so grimy, it's a little sickening. haven't cleaned them with water in, well, never. I should probably do that sometime.
  10. Exactly, I really can't stand playing with others who insist on defining an order to every hole. Honors on the tee has always seemed pointless to me, and I don't see the hubbub about putting "out of order" when everybody else is just standing around wasting time. I have been finishing my rounds recently in 3 1/2 hours, and I am fairly leisurely. I don't understand those who need 5+ hours to play 18 holes.
  11. 2H and 3H are easier for me to hit effectively than the 2 and 3 iron, but for me personally I would never favor a hybrid over my 4 or 5 iron. It's all a matter of feel that is different with everybody. I know some people who can't get anything longer than a 6 iron off the ground, so a 5H would likely help a lot. Some people have talked about how great hybrids play out of the rough. This is also a personal feel thing because I personally do not like the feel at all from the rough, unless it is fairly short and I have a near perfect lie. But there's nothing to lose in trying them out, as they can be very beneficial to some.
  12. The consensus as I have observed it is the same as the OP's. I don't hang around a lot of golfers, none of my friends and few of my acquaintances know the first thing about golf, but it is very hard for them to see golf as a sport when compared to the popular sports that everyone knows. And I have to admit, I have found myself agreeing with them more and more recently. No doubt, guys like Tiger are athletes plain and simple. However, I do see a fair amount of guys on tour who look like they struggle to roll off the couch in the morning. Golf requires no significant level of athletic prowess. To be a great golfer, you are probably also a great athlete, but as seen on tour and on golf courses across America, you don't need to be athletic to play good golf. I believe that golf is a sport but you can't ignore the guy who looks at John Daly or Jason Gore or Tim Herron etc. and wonders why on earth these guys are considered professional athletes. However, it makes no difference to me whether my friends consider golf a sport or not, it's something I will enjoy regardless.
  13. Probably not a great idea, but I always look up.
  14. still waiting for this to happen to me! well done!
  15. As long as you let them know before stepping on to the first tee, what's the problem? Everyone should be free to play from whichever tee box they want. And I don't know of anybody who would feel slighted by this if it's all done in a friendly manner.
