My favorite one and I do say it when you got people searching for a lost ball forever "Good Lord if you can't afford another ball I will give you a couple if you will just move on"

The best one I ever heard was from a friend of mine who is a retired Funeral Director. We had some super old farts holding up a course one day and the rangers were non existant. He rode up to them on the next tee and said "You people are slower than slow and I have buried people that move faster than you do"

I have also done this within earshot of some of these Tommy Tourist Golfers when they are taking all day lining up putts from 3 or 4 directions and leaving a 20 footer 10 feet short. " Now in this group we have Palmer Nicklaus and Player and Mr Palmer is looking at this double bogey putt from 3 sides ohh nooo he has missed the break by 4 feet"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

What groups? I didn't have to say anything. I played today and I was the only one on the course. Sunny, 26* with just a slight breeze about 15 mph!

We could yell "Fire", but that probably wouldn't work, especially with golfers.

 

I believe this is all based on perspective. 

 

George Carlin said this once about driving, in a car, not a golf ball.  Whoever is in front of you is a moron and they are picking their a--, and whoever is behind you is tailgating you and driving like a crazy mo' fo'.

 

Yes, whoever is in front of us are slow goofs who take too many practice swings, spend too much time looking for balls, don't play ready golf, spend too much time lining up putts, mark their scores near the green instead going to the next tee, sit in the cart and watch their partner hit, then drive 10 yards and the other guy gets out and hits, etc.

 

Whoever is behind us are always pushing us, hitting into us, are impatiently standing in the fairway or on the tee box with the arms crossed with annoying smirks on their faces, you can feel them breathing down on our necks.

 

The only way to avoid this to be hardy like Kenny B. Golfing in 26 degrees and 15 MPH winds will fix the congestion problem for sure.  Damn, that is some manly stuff.

Yes, but KennyB is a masochist and hard core...we're a bunch of soft kittens in comparisson.

Well, in Tampa with Rev, Foz and Jax it was "we can't play any faster a-holes... We're waiting on a group ahead"

I forgot about that incident. The Marshall actually was harassing us when we were waiting over nearly every shot.

 

Jax and I had a similar experience at TPC Sawgrass. We were playing with one of the assistant pros and moving along fine. I think our round took 4 1/2 hours there complete with the requisite 2 or 3 balls and picture poses on 17. We almost never even saw the group behind us after the 2nd hole and I'm certain they never waited on us. We certainly weren't being slowed down by the group ahead but we had to wait on shots a couple of times.

 

In mid round the Marshall came up to us and said, "while we're young." I thought the pro was going to blow a gasket. He called the clubhouse furious about the guy.

 

So the moral of this story must be that Jaxsonville Beach Packer fan and I play slow.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

It's 44 and raining; supposed to get to 60. I'm not playing in the rain because this is the desert and I don't have to. Purr.

Most course marshalls don't survey the situation before try to move people along. Aggravating, and it can ruin a round.

The TPC one may have ruined that marshall's plum job - he should have considered who was in the group as well as the course situation.  While the assistant pro playing with his was not his direct supervisor (had he been the guy would have been terminated for sure) it was foolish to think that he would not talk to his boss and have influence with him particularly when it could be easily documented that we were ahead of pace for our round.  We heard the pro on the phone with the guy's boss and his point was obvious, even had we been behind pace you would never, ever treat a customer who was paying the type of money that TPC typically commands that way - you'd say (Gentlemen, please - and not some snarky sarcastic remark.)

 

Jax, the pros Dad and myself - we laughed at off - but we weren't paying $400 for our rounds either.
