    I was the 'scientist golfer' before Dechambeau was born. Analysis and analytics have always fascinated me...they've never helped me, but they've fascinated me.

    NASA will look down and start screaming themselves thinking I they spotted a tour pro because I dress like one. But, maybee they will not be able to see me in the woods.

    Me and the guys I play with are just there to drink some beer and have a good time together. If there's a group behind us that are swinging the sticks well, we usually always let them play through because we know we are slower than most. If we are having a terrible day swinging the clubs, we might just stop keeping score on the back 9 and enjoy the rest of the round.




    That's how my dad and I played. We didn't drink during the round but we'd always let others play through if they caught us and we'd stop keeping score if we weren't hitting it very well.

    I'm also the guy always teeing off early 5:30 to 6:30 am ( time controlled by sunlight) cracking a beer and torching a cigar on the first tee.

    Haha, you’re the guy at the tour event who likes people to think he’s a pro.



    I understand the mentality, I’m more like just do not care what people think kinda guy.

    I'm the jones/seamus/truelinkswear/criquet guy that walks every round with his blades and expensive putter. I can't hit the fairway to save my life but can make bogey from just about anywhere.

    Played with a guy last month had his name embroidered on his bag. I asked him which course he was the pro at..He looked puzzled.

    If I can't find my ball within 30 seconds of walking towards where I thought I hit it, I'll drop. If my playing partners lose their ball, I feel obligated to jump into a bundle of poison ivy to help out.



    I'll take ESC sometimes to avoid the aggravation.



    I hit a ball to the 150 yard stick on a 510yd par 5 the other day(no bragging, just stating it) and the person I was paired with asked me, "What is that, like 280?" and my reply is "I dunno, is it?"



    I don't take practice swings.



    I judge line and speed while others are putting so I am ready to putt when it is my turn.



    I don't move balls(I dinged up my Miura 8 iron pretty good off of a rock in my league match even when my opponent told me to move it to some grass)



    I know the rules(my opponent in the semi finals tried telling me every time my clubhead touched the tall grass while in a hazard it was a stroke penalty)

    New expensive clubs = lousy golfer. Old clubs with new grips = don't bet no matter how tempting.

    I seem to be the guy first asked "Hey I need a newer set of irons, driver, 3 wood etc". Seems I've been known to have an excess of golf related stuff.

    Im the ball hunter. I cant help but drive along the woods and water hazards searching for a few free Pro Vs or any other premium ball. If im playing alone I can get distracted for some time... Ill collect some good looking cheap balls too and just leave them in the cart or my less picky golf buddies will take them. That or save them to do some skipping at a pond (if the course has one).




    I’m the ball leaver. I don’t think I’ve ever spent more than a minute or two looking for a ball.



    I also bring my own beer instead of buying overpriced crap from the cart girl.

    Tinkerer - getting better but I love to experiemnt

    Streaky - 50 front, 37 back is standard

    Self-blame/Own worst critic - I have higher expectations than are realistic for my ability. But I don't blame outside forces for my poor shots. "That guy moved/there was a bug/why are those people on another hole talking" etc are BS excuses for a poor shot.

    Fast player - probably should slow down a little

    People think that I am a **** and bitter as **** because I work in the industry and get "no time" to play (biggest lie there is...there is time if you make the time) and resent the golfers. Hardly even close to the truth, I work in golf because I love to play the game, and get to play quite often (hit balls and play holes every day, typically 4 rounds a week at least one is walking if caddies are in season). The membership is great, although there is one at every club that thinks he should be in charge, for the most part everyone is great!

    I'm the guy that just doesn't give a da#n.



    I'll take on shots I don't have in the bag like punching a low 6 iron against the wind with a big fade over a lake to some impossible back right pin, even though I haven't practiced that shot for 2 years.



    I got thrown off a team I played for because I played an absolute reckless monster hook over an OB fairway corner just to hit the 18th green in 2 with all my team mates watching. This was less than 8 hours after the captain had told us all to play conservative and we would win the competition.



    I told him that I knew I had the shot and could see it perfectly, but he didn't understand my logic.

    If I see a good tee, I have to pick it up. Same thing if I spot a ball. I've got a cooler full of tees, and 10 gallons of balls.

    You're not alone. My son told me the same thing.



    You know Dad, for someone who takes so much time to hit a shot you sure don't spend any time at all lining up a putt. Maybe if you spent a little less time worrying about hitting your next shot and a little more time lining up your putts you'd play better... image/blush.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blush:' />
    Your problem is LOFT -- Lack of friggin' talent!

    I am the guy who "goes about his business."



    I am happy and satisfied with "making pars."



    I don't much care about the "the history of golf."



    I enjoy playing with golf "with friends."



    I do not "do food" on the turn.

    I'm the guy who knows what he SHOULD BE doing, but can't execute it.



    "I need to draw the ball around the corner". Block right.



    "I need to bump the ball into the side of that ridge, which will then run up to the hole." Thin bullet off the other side of the green.



    "I need to stay down on this ball below my feet" Skulled.

    I'm the guy who can shoot handicap consistently but rarely beat it, whether I am 9 over through 9 or level par on the 18th tee, I will find a way to shoot 5 over!

    The guy that'll shoot 36-38 on the front with 2 fairways and 2 greens, then hit 6 fairways and 8 greens on the back and shoot the same thing. Or, the guy who doesn't make their first par until the 7th hole and be 1 over.

    I am the guy Wal Mart Burkes Outlet or Goodwill fashion. Floppy Pukka hat or Straw hat with a cheap cigar. Play older vintage irons and non conforming rusty wedges. Like old rusty beat to **** lead taped putters nothing newer than a rusty 97 Scotty. Do play a somewhat newer driver with beat to **** V-Steel woods. All in a vintage Ping Hoofer bag with Lord only knows what school emblem is on it. Since retiring from serious comp and big money matches 10 years ago I play for fun rarely practice. Could give two hoots less what I shoot. I just have fun and play maybe one or two days a week. Having the golf fun of my life--- Could care less what sticks someone else plays or how they dress
