  1. Based on the totally scientific approach of which post got the most likes, you are the winner with 10 likes. After a bottle of wine and some deep thinking, I think you are correct. I think I made too much of the hand on the hip thing, maybe he had a bad hip and was massaging it? I probably let a couple bad shots get in my head and had to blame something. I appreciate the responses even though most of you pointed out that I might be wrong. I do have the habit of letting a bad hole or a poor guy massaging his hip affect my game and maybe that is why my handicap never gets below 12. I need to relearn that golf is supposed to be fun. Rest assured that in the future I will let you through whether you are sitting in your cart or massaging your hip. I might draw the line at the person yelling and flipping me off though. Maybe I need to find the guy from yesterday and buy him a beer. BTW, my wife will never believe that I admitted I was wrong LOL Missing something here. What happened? You let him through? Was he nice? Need the rest of the story. You can't read his mind and just standing there isn't necessarily rude, maybe that's how he waits, maybe he's humming All You Need Is Love. What actually happened? What hole was this? I'm getting the impression you didn't let him through in which case there likely is a problem, but may not be him. 14th hole, my twosome behind a foursome. Should have let him go through and he could have taken his chances with the foursome. As for inviting him to join us, my bad. As I said earlier in my mea culpa, a few bad shots, me having a hands on the hip issue, maybe not my finest hour. But different things bother different people.

  3. If the course was open in front of you, it would have been a great time to wave the single up. He hits, you start to putt, hopefully he's on the green or nearby, He putts out, you guys putt out, and he's off on the next tee out of your hair. It's win/win. Agreed. In hindsight, even though I was aggravated at seeing him in what I thought was a "rushing me" posture, it would have been easier just letting it go and waving him through. Like I said earlier, I have no problem letting people through and I have let people through even when they had the hand on the hip look. For some reason it bothered me more today and it shouldn't have. Golf is supposed to be fun and something this trivial shouldn't have bothered me that much.
  4. I do agree about ready golf, but staring at us with a club in your hand in my opinion isn't ready golf. I am sure that as I am putting in the flag, he can get out of his cart, check the yardage, grab a club and be ready to hit the moment my rear end hits the cart seat. That in my opinion is ready golf. But, thanks for your opinion, that is what I wanted. In this instance, if the majority of golfers feel I am wrong then it is my responsibility to adjust my behavior. I think you're not being unreasonable, although you should try to limit your annoyance about things you can't control. A single catching up to a slower group for the first time shouldn't indicate his impatience. If he has been waiting for a couple of holes, then I'd say he becomes justified. But "should" isn't reality, some people feel entitled to play at whatever pace they choose. Just do what you'd normally do, let him through at the appropriate time, and enjoy the rest of your day. You are right, I shouldn't worry about things out of my control and as I keep telling my shrink, "I am working on it". LOL
  5. I play 200 rounds a year and I/we almost always let people play through, usually a single. When I am playing, I can see when a cart is behind us in the fairway and I will start thinking of a place to let them through. Just basic etiquette. However, I believe the single has to also adhere to etiquette. On a par 4 and we are on the green putting, when the single gets to his ball, instead of waiting until we put the flag in, he stands next to his ball, club in one hand and the other on his hip staring at the green. Am I the only one who finds this rude? My reaction is that I start rushing and them I am less inclined to want to let them through. I play frequently as a single and I know the group in front can see my cart. On a tee box I never pull all the way up so I am parked next to them, I wait behind the tips so as not to rush them. They can see my cart so they know I am there. On a par 4 I sit in my cart next to my tee shot until they clear the green. Again they can see my cart so they know I am there, they don't need to see my standing there with my club while they are putting. Same on a par 5, I sit next to my second shot until they leave the green. Am I the only one that is bothered by this? Is the single with the hand on his hip in the right? Interested to hear opinions. Thanks
  6. The Snell Buttah! Oh wait, Dean hasn't confirmed that yet.
  7. Great ball, you won't be sorry. Buy them straight from Dean and that way he doesn't have to share the profits with Amazon and can keep selling us great balls at great prices.
  8. Has anyone regripped an X5R and if so with what? I have the Matador midsize and have never liked the look, (I hate red) nor the feel. I have a Fatso 5.0 on my 2 Ball putter and I like it but I think it would look ridiculous on a Scotty. I was thinking about the Slim 3.0 as a compromise between the two, a little thicker than the Matador but not huge like the Fatso. If anyone has thoughts I would love to hear them. For the record, I have a SBST stroke and my miss is usually off the left edge but I think that may be more of an alignment issue.
  9. When I go through periods like that I have one swing thought and that is weight on left side. Seems to get me back on track. Good luck
  10. Was he fitted for the towel or did he buy off the rack?
  11. Dean: Are you giving us a hint? Buttah is yellow...
  12. My fat a** would wear a pair of them if I could hit a 3 wood 299 off the deck!
