Do big box stores think you are a jamoque?

Big box store employee thought I was a jamoque. I asked to demo an EPIC driver, and he said: "you want a 9.5, right?" I said: "no, please get me a 13.5."



When he installed the shaft I saw after 7 duck-hooks on the monitor that he installed it to "Draw."



NO SALE!!!





I must look like a jamoque. What do you need to do to not look like a jamoque? Wear a T-shirt that says: "Hi, my USGA index is:_____"



Or do you just need to be in the "boys club" to not be assumed you slice your drives?

    Its my experience that only a jamoque would blame 7 consecutive duck hooks on Draw bias

    Accept the fact that more times than not, employees assume you're a bad golfer until proven otherwise. Just smile and ask for your preferred settings. But yeah a true duck hook isn't caused by the draw setting.



    And th is a jamoque?

    I keep my driver set to 12. Should I marry a hermaphrodite? Realize there are many WRXers who should be playing a 13.5 but never will because they read your post, couldn't wrap their heads around the humor and were shamed into playing the wrong loft and shaft flex. Shame on you.

    Jamoque- One who hits only duck hooks with the driver, blames in on a 1 degree draw bias, then expresses incredulity at the behavior of the salesman.

    LOL, your avatar made me laugh.



    A jamoque is someone who has intellectual capabilities of a cup of coffee (java and mocha). It also referred to male genitalia in the 60s. Maybe there were many kinds then. I heard they tasted colors and smelled sounds back then...



    A jamoque is someone who looks like they slice the ball in the golf store.

    Dimples. You asked what I assume are rhetorical questions in the OP. Can you please confirm whether they are true or not.

    1. Are you in the "boys club"

    2. Do you look like a jamoque?

    No, and possibly. Or at least I look like a slicer.

    A straight hooker? I would suggest high heels and plenty of mascara.

    This guy's best thread was all about cheating your way into a tour win by using sebum off of your face. Didn't take long for that one to get locked.
