    Watching the am's at the Pebble Beach tourney ruins it for me. Great iconic course, but I don't care the least bit about watching Bill Murray or Toby Keith etc attempt to golf. Leave it to the pros...

    I'll take the opposite opinion (which might also be unpopular): I love watching the amateurs play at the Pebble Beach Pro Am. Watching the pros is awesome, but I can watch them the other 99% of the season.

    Let's be fair, Renee Russo has been terrible in just about everything.

    She was great in the black dress...

    The Pinehurst courses were better before the renovations.

    1. Stop complaining about pace of play, don't like it, stay home / don't play / bring a newspaper ... etc.
    2. Don't be surprised that you can't find the ball you 'accidentally' hit into our group. Pick one: I threw it into the woods. I hid it near a bush, shrub, or other natural obstruction. I kicked it back 20 yards into the rough. I kicked it into the water. I stepped on it pushing it into the mud. Decent looking 3 or 4 piece balls go in my bag.
    3. Stop clipping towels to your pants, you look: ridiculous, trashy, like a hobo, like a weekend hack, etc.
    4. Golf carts should only be for seniors / disabled players, all others walk.

    JonesScott is really a cool guy...and quite a player.

    I truly believe we will see the new “old” Wrx format this week.

    These are supposed to be "unpopular" opinions. We all LOVED JonesScott.

    Let's get back to actually unpopular opinions:
    Augusta National plays too "tricked up" for my tastes. This is true for me for Alister Mackenzie courses in general (eg., Pasatiempo).

    1. There is something wrong with courses discriminating on who plays on their courses
    2. Fat and non muscular golfers that win are good for golf
    3. There is something to be proud of when you shoot well with game improvement or most graphite irons.
    4. Every single golf advertisement is wonderful. If they affect you purchases, But you might not need it.

    Masters par 3 contest is not entertaining enough to be on TV
    Free relief from fairway divots, must drop from knee height (lol)
    Putters should be 40" or less

    Keeping your head down isn't the key to better golf. When I suggest this to my playing partners they look at me like I'm crazy.

    Scorecard playoffs should be eliminated. They are an administrative solution to avoiding the time and bother of having an actual playoff. If a scorecard playoff cannot be avoided, use them only to determine a tournament winner (gross and/or net). Do not use them for second place, third place, etc, What;s wrong with T2, T3, etc,? Split the prizes equally for ties.

    If you book a last minute solo tee time, I ain't letting you through. Don't book a tee time expecting to just play frogger to get done a round in under 2 and a half.
    White claws should be banned from all golf courses. Possibly just banned from ever existing.
    If you talk to my ball, I get to punch you.

    The PGA used to be a about spin control and managing a ball that the wind could hammer around. Modern gear has diminished that aspect and the Pro game has been less enjoyable to watch since.

    Thank goodness for carts so those of us with health issues can play 18 and have a chance at a decent score. Music is okay if you keep It so only your group can hear it. Of course if the Boss comes on turn it up to 11. Happy 70 th Bruce. Just had to throw that in.

    Ryder Cup should not have been elevated to elite status...... it's an exhibition that has no bearing on the game....majors and wins are what players should be based on.
    However, allow The Americas to come together (both North and South) adding the International team playing the loser dropping the President's Cup..... then the Americas Team isn't obligated to the rest of the world every year.

    I tell you what though, I'll give you 18 $10 bills and you give me 15 $100 bills. 18 > 15 I know, so you'll be doing better than me out of the deal, but I'm willing to fall on my sword for this one.

    My most unpopular golf opinion ... it's okay if you have to leave mid-round to be somewhere else, don't cry and moan all day about pace of play. If you owned a course and paid the bills to keep it afloat, you would never remove or reprimand a group from the course for slow play. Encourage them to let quicker groups through at the right times ... yes, but you wouldn't turn them away or make them feel unwelcome.

    Agh. I'm not seeing it. Renee Russo is simply a less attractive Julia Roberts. Waaaaaay too many teeth on both of them, IMHO.

    Hank Haney made a good point that no Americans being in contention has hurt Women's golf. I don't care about men's tennis for the same reason.

    TPC courses are gimmicky junk

    Links courses are goat tracks

    A dress code is still needed in non-muni golf and tournament play (no untucked shirts or jeans)

    1. It should never bother us when people post in a thread without reading the OP.

    2. I'm okay with Tony Romo and Steph Curry getting as many sponsor exemptions as the sponsors want to give.
