Hats off to "Grampa"!  I'll have to remember this next time I play in a scramble.

 

I suppose the kids finished at 19 under par?

Well played sir! as I re-learned from the movie Kingsmen "Manners Maketh the Man"

 

I played our charity tourney this last summer and there was a 4some of young guys, all early 20s. Well, one of them was leading the long drive contest, and mine was the last group. My buddy who 5-5, has a beautiful swing and awesome leverage, absolutely tatooed his drive and took the lead by about 1 yard. 

At the awards luncheon, one of the young guys  not the kid he beat) was incredulous, questioning his ability because the previous leader "was a baseball player.... 6-3.... jacked his drive."

 

Oh, these young kids these days

I've got the old age thing going for me, but I must have missed the treachery thing somewhere along the way.

That's a good story. Unfortunately the issue with a lack of respect stretches far beyond golf.

Nope, 20...

But they were also playing from the whites, which should have been cheating anyways... But, whatever. We were proud of our honest -10

I haven't commented in this thread because s**t like that really pisses me off! Personally, I would have told them to keep their @#$%^&* money and get the hell away from me! I probably would have ended up in a fight. Nothing pisses me off more than rude, disrespectful little punks... especially on a golf course!

 

Like jbil8802 said.... it goes far beyond golf.

Which is why I don't play in scrambles anymore unless it's for a charity that I would support anyway. Well done on -10.

Good for Gramps and entirely disrespectful. I played a lot of golf growing up with guys that were 40 or 50 years older than me that could just flat out play. Heck my grandpop just turned 88 and with the right handicap and tee adjustment he would still give me a run for my money. I also learned long ago that length alone does not make someone a good golfer and lost my lunch money more than a few times as a kid through my own arrogance of how I "good" I thought I was at the game.

I think disrespect because of age, gender, race, size and so on is all ridiculous. Not to make it political, but being a younger guy it is always frustrating when people who are older than me treat me like a child.

 

I've always looked at all ages of people the same way I look at someone my own age. I try to give everyone their respect and not judge. It's just common courtesy. I work with multiple people who are 3 times my age and I consider them great friends. And all ages in between. Friends. The age gap doesn't matter. And those people reciprocate that respect right back to me.

 

I just can't understand why someone would treat people any other way.

 

Good for grandpa!

I thought it was just an unwritten rule not to make fun of people out on the course. Why is it hard for people to just worry about their ownself.

 

I just let people like that play through. No need to converse or ruin your round with people like that. I've had older people be just as condescending that I'm using an 8 when they use a 6 iron so it's definitely not a younth phenomenon.

Great story and outcome Sluggo.  I have to admit I enjoy sticking it to some of the young tyros of our club out on the course, even the occasional sideways glance when we get to our balls after a particularly good drive and I'm past them.  I figure enjoy it while I can :)

Except drivers will have turbo's by then, and the average drive of a 60 year old male will be about 320

I'm glad I've never run into any jerk offs like that when I've played.

 

My Grandfather taught me the game on his farm. And he made sure I respects the game before I was even allowed to go to a course. He's 94, still plays 4-5 times a week, has 8 holes-in-ones, 6 since he turned 80.

 

I hope I'm playing as good as Grandpa when I get up there, if I even make it to that age.

 

That's what I've always loved about golf. Any player can beat someone half their age on any day. Try doing that in any other sport.
