Star, if you ever get serious with a guy, bring him down to play a round of golf before you really get hitch! Then you can really see the true side of him. And then judged him after the game. Never married a guy who wraps his iron round a tree after hitting a bad shot. Imagine later in married life what he would do to the crow bar he has in his hands. Golf brings out the true character of a person when he is playing the game. lol!

I have to admit that I used to show blackface on the course if I played badly. I won't throw clubs nor curse and swear but will just keep quiet till I "recovered". Then one fine day after a game while having a beer, my golf kakis told me that they really didn't enjoy the day because of my quietness. Since then, I have changed quite a lot and tend to take things easy. Just have to stay focus on my game and relax myself. Feeling frustrated will make things worst and it does affect your flightmates.

To my flightmates:

If I've shown you my black face, I apologize. I love you all, honest.

If I've uttered obscenities, it's only to my game and myself. I love you all, honest.

If I've thrown my clubs, it's only cause I'm better at the javelin than at golf. I love you all, honest.

If I've told you how much I want to give up golf, it's only cause golf has given up on me. I love you all, honest.

Now, let's get back to golf Smile

Personally, I think it is a fine line to draw between nice and impatient.. If too patient to newbie, they will continue to play slow. And they will continue to think it is ok.
I feel it is still the responsibility for the more experience player who bring new players to let them know slow play is not encouraged.
Of course, doing it tactically and easy to swallow is not easy. Sometimes a black face migth just get the message across. Razz

I used to keep hurry my GF which she just started playing. Then she was quite pissed but now she thank me for it as she understand the fustration of slow play to others and she is glad she is not the one holding the game up

Just my 2cent

I dont care what people say but I will show my flight mates the KPKB face. When there is 3 flights way behind is waiting to take shots and you are still at your 13 strokes and putting for 14. You take as if each putts like putting for the world series and after you putt, you ponder hands on yr waist on WTF in hell the ball didn't go into the damn hole.

I dont know which part of earth yall are from but I will give my fellow golfer a black face when they are told that they should speed up, pick up the ball and they didn't.

If I ever am in the company of a drunk and abusive golfer, I will make sure it would be my last game with him. Even if there is insurance coverage, what can a dead/half-dead/as-good-as-dead man (touch wood) do with it, because you never know what might happen in the course of an argument or fight.

I have been told that i'm slow from time to time too. The best thing to do IMO is to do some self evaluation, and maybe seek the opinion of other golf kakis as well.

If more than one person agrees.. means its true. Then i'll go work on my pre-shot routine to speed up my play. I'd rather make some changes than not have any golf kakis to play with. Razz

My take on this is that when someone tells you something, be it a flaw or a weakness, dun take it too harsh as though its a personal attack and then react defensively. Golf is also a game of habits. Once you develop a certain pace, its not easy to change. One less practice stroke will make you feel uncomfortable and unready to take the shot.
