geez..... when did golf become a full contact sport!? The guy was waiting to hit a golf ball right??? Its not like he was waiting for a new battery for his heart/lung machine!!! Calm down fella!
Golf and other recreation is meant to relax and let go of stress. Something is very wrong with individuals who cannot remain courteous and civil playing a game. And have the patience to understand that others are still learning.
Wow somebody needs a new hobby. Wonder if the Judge will take away his clubs? Manors would have let this guys play though but what the hex this is a me first world now.
Don't golf angry!
WEll...I hope the golf club banned this guy...18th hole? At the finish line?
Give me a break.
I thought this was the Sport Of Gentlemen ????? Maybe the guy didn't know about letting someone play thru but even if he did should he have been clubbed? I think they should make him play behind a bunch of slow people for 6 months as punishment :-)
Face it he was Tee'd off.(that's bad)
I think somebody may have watched Caddyshack just a few too many times!
thanks for the smiles people...those were some funny responses.
Wild Bill - Major groan!
This happens all the time. I just don't know what there hurry is? Take more beer with you next time. Or ask to go ahead of them.
Enter the wily gofers...oh..golfers:)
Now if he didn't count those 2 strokes on his score he cheated too.
Yup- take his clubs and funny pants.
It's really not funny but what are ya gonna do?
If people would just have the common courtesy to let faster players play through, all kinds of potential problems would be avoided. I don't know all the facts, I just base on this on experience. It's the same as you drivers who drive 40 on a highway. You have many options of places to pull over and let the 10 cars behind you pass, but you just ignore it and keep driving as if you own the road. Again, just presuming based on the content of the story. ...And no, it's still no excuse for what the guy did, but there is always a consequence to our actions (or lack there of).
Friends don't let friends golf slow!
Golf clubs are apparently VERY dangerous! They should ban them!
thrinnskaar many times I let other golfer go ahead and have them play slower then us. Also have been backed up and have gofers behind me just have a fit for not letting go ahead. I've had golfers hit on the green while I was putting. They did not get their ball back. The real problem is golfers are a big pain in the rear. Always in a hurry.
BJ Hansen--Be nice to know the name of the so-called victim. That way I'll know better than to get a tee time after him & the old bag (who were obviously too rude to let Rappleye play through).
Wildbill & Carlisdad: Ha-ha, very good!
I agree...there is nothing in the constitution that guarentees the right to own golf clubs.....they should be illegal.
