Unpopular opinions...


Recommended Posts

Up until a few years ago, I would have said, "I've loved hitting my Controller driving iron for the last 20 plus years. I don't know why more guys don't hit driving irons." That would have been hugely unpopular.

If you use a poker chip as a ball marker, you might as well just leave your ball on the green.

Forgiveness in golf equipment is overrated. Regardless of what type of club you play, you still have to put a good swing on the ball. This segues into the mystique of MB's and how much harder they are

Nothing to do with this thread other than complimenting you on the fantastic use of the word balderdash.

I was about to say the same thing when I read this lol

Most fitters put tall golfers into clubs that are way too long, especially in the longer irons.

Scotty Putters are the Patron tequila of the golf course. All show, minimal go, and people are more proud of the name than the performance.

Polarized sunglasses make no difference whatsoever whilst reading greens. So if you want to wear douchey looking goggles to avoid plain sunglasses...please do but we're all secretly laughing at you - yes pointing at you Stenson.

All leather saddle shoes for golf is over. Just move on.

Hybrids aren't easier to hit, just harder to chunk.

You don't hit your 3wd farther than your driver, you just suck at hitting driver.

 

Honorable mention for adding sugar to frosted flakes, making the leftover milk awesome. And then going into diabetic shock, despite not being diabetic. However the blue milk left over by fruity pebbles is like being on Tatooine, so I mean...clearly it wins.

“A lob wedge is a precision instrument and most golfers would benefit from not using one”. Like every club, don’t hit it fat and you’ll play it just fine.

You’re right, I can’t hit my driver.

 

Stop letting twilight golfers tee off on #10.

I used to knock the GI notion, but now I see their benefits for people like my old man who have arthritis (and play ready golf ?)

I’m tired of watching pro golf. The marketing and endorsements in this sport are so inflated. I don’t want to support any current brand on tour.

I’m a natural lefty swinging anything. Played baseball as a lefty but switched to playing golf right handed after a shoulder injury and agree lefty swings look so much better it’s crazy.

I know this is meant to be a joke but as someone who played basketball and ran the 400m for a Division 1 NCAA program I can tell you that Badminton is the most physically taxing sport I have ever played at a high level. Running the 400m takes less than 50 seconds. If you are playing someone of equal skill in Badminton you will have points that last that long and you are basically doing wind sprints the entire match. From someone who knows, don't sleep on Badminton. Brooks's knees definitely aren't holding up to that.

Yep his joints aren't meant to handle that much extra weight. He's injured by 30 and never the same again.
