Your most unpopular Golf opinions?


Recommended Posts

Well Nick I am going to differ with you on your last one. Back in the day I was wild as heck off the tee with the persimmon so I got plenty of practice hitting recovery shots with a 5 iron. Ya know man just saying

Boy, you guys sure do let a lot bother you. In the last two years, I have survived prostate cancer and a heart attack. I play, and walk almost every day, and I'm thrilled to still be in the upright po

Fittings are overrated Putter fittings are doubly so   There, I said it.

Handicap tournaments are the golf equivalent of live-action role playing game. You might as well put on a fake beard, pretend to be a dwarf and re-enact the Lord of the Rings.

 

people who fiddle with their crap and don't get moving deserve to be hit into,people who "do over" when people are waiting behind them deserve to be hit into,people who are slow and don't let you play through deserve to be hit into AND have their bags dumped out,people who stop at the turn to buy food and complain you got in front of them deserve to be hit,people who are slower in a cart than walkers should lose their ignition key privileges and be forced to push it while being sprayed in the face with a hose,Augusta National uses turf dye to make the grass all the same color,USGA sucks,and golf courses that don't put any soap in the ball washers should be closed, tilled under, and turned into racetracks.

I've heard that called a "Shamble", agreed it's a good format which speeds up play for the most part when you have many groups.

First of all your #2 is just plain stupid. By your logic Jack Nicklaus was bad for the game.

That leads to number two which is you need to distinguish between is it unpopular on here or in the real world. My opinion of the worst golf invention of the past 50 years is the wireless speaker that clips to your golf bag. That is a pretty unpopular opinion at the local muni but my guess is it would be a popular one on here.

If you want to play dress up for golf, fine. If you insist everyone else play dress up, too, you're mentally ill.If you have anything but a normal putting grip, you're going to 'The Island' when I'm King.From what I've read about them, club fittings seem unnecessarily anal retentive. There's no cure for slow play. Give up on trying to change them. It's not easy, but giving up on this crusade made me happier.

George Gankas is a genius but not for his swing theories. He sets players up with a powerful swing that produces a great ballflight while he is standing there instructing them and reminding them about the cues and positions on every swing...but when he’s not there it is wildly inconsistent and hard to repeat because there’s just so much stuff going on. Therefore he gets people to keep coming back for lessons or buying his online lessons because they have seen that the swing can produce great results, but they can’t do it consistently without one of the coaches keeping an eye on them. Genius.

Never understood this unwritten rule that golf courses own the tee times and they can pair you with whomever they want. Restaurants own the tables, so with this logic unless you and your wife pay for a table of 4, they should seat strangers together to maximize their seating.

How about this idea. If you are a single, play with friends or pay for the foursome slot and play by yourself. This works both ways.

But restaurants have different size tables for different size groups, it's not like you're using up resources. If I'm at a table with an extra chair and another table needs a chair, they can take it. Completely different from grouped tee times which shouldn't exceed 4 and have to be on a timetable

The average golfer doesn't make solid or consistent enough contact to have any impact from a 7% (difference in average driving distance today vs pre-ProV1) ball rollback. Nor have they experience any loss in performance from the groove change. In fact, they weren't impacted at all because their wedges are still legal. Finally, its all irrelevant because the average golfer doesn't play by the rules or care to.

It is exactly the course that owns the tee times, I'm not sure how that is confusing to you. They own the tee times, and have designated 4 slots per tee time. A 3some has purchased 3 of those 4 slots. If the course feels it is in their interest to fill that slot, they absolutely have the right to do so, as it is their course. Seems pretty straight forward to me. Your 3some did not purchase the tee time, you purchased 3 of the available 4 spaces within that tee time. As mentioned, you are more than likely free to pay for that 4 slot if you do not wish to have a 4th join you, but if the course is busy, do not be the one to complain about pace as your 3some is waiting on a course stacked full of 4somes.

My favorite part of this is he tells the single to pay for 4 spots if they want to play alone, but can't fathom paying for the 4th spot with a threesome lol
