Some of you might get a kick out of this. I was surfing through the different threads on here and thought I had pressed on the community button. Anyways my wife popped in about the exact same time the

Went to my 10 year olds baseball game yesterday and was really shocked. Never saw so many rift raft parents in my life. So many  foul mouth, trashy looking  people congregated in one area was a little much for me. I’m fortunate that my grandson is also taking soccer and golf this summer thru is local school system. Really hoped many of these young kids don’t turn out like their parents. Yelling at the refs , coaches and booing the other team was just inappropriate for an 10 year old enduring.This should be a time for them enjoying and learning the sport. I sat with his parents and we started chatting about their sons progress in golf this summer. One of the families next to us over heard the conversation and gave us this look like we were snooty. So glad sports like soccer and golf tend too bring in a higher standard of parents. Really eliminates the obnoxious rift raft crowds. Especially when the kids are in late elementary years 

Keep it in the short stuff

Thanks @Peaksy68 - it’s nice to know you have my back! But thanks to my affliction, I actually have an identical backup Nickent hybrid.

I was almost with you here but I think you're missing the point, if only by a little bit. Poor sportsmanship appears at all levels of the economic scale regardless of sport. Yes, that behavior is bad but I don't think it's fair to assign it to "rift raft" of lower classes. Might I suggest looking inwards at how you can set a positive example for others to follow rather than outward at other's deficiencies?

Just talked to the pro after picking my son up from PGA Jr practice and sure enough - he’s already outgrown the Cobras I bought for him last summer [emoji51]

Agree.Sadly these youth are in an endless cycle that will keep repeating.They will be the ones yelling in the stands when they are adults.Their families are breeding them into this toxic lifestyles.

My club opened the door up to them many a time.We had an excellent summer youth golf program that was basically free and included the clubs.We reached out to these areas in the communities offering them a chance to learn a game that teaches so many great life morals.Year after year the attendance was nil - none.So we decided ending it with the lack of participation.

I’m gonna say my peace on this then let it die.
If I have taken your replies out of context I apologize but until I read otherwise this is how I read them.

I do not know you personally nor was I at the ball game of which you spoke of but this reply coupled with the first one scream “elitist” to me.

Just as the people or “Rift Raft” as you call them are leading their children down the same path, you may also lead your grandson down ur path. Saying that your club opened up the doors to them and offered to teach them this game isn’t the greatest choice of words. Kinda sounds like “Hey come to my club and we will class you up a bit.” Makes you come off as a snotty to use your word.

Again if I misinterpreted what you meant I apologize and await clarification. Otherwise I will bow out now.

When I was growing up it was a great honor being on the baseball field. My folks were very animate on the sidelines. And put tons of effort into my game and seeing this as a chance leading into a possible scholarship one day. For many, baseball is a way out of a ‘ rift raft ‘ life as you call it. So as you see as being loud and obnoxious. I see it as parents pushing their sons or daughters into being successful. You also learn team work , honesty and pride in what your doing as a player. Valuable qualities needed leading into adulthood 

I also took advantage of the golf clinic at the local country club for kids who live on the other side of the tracks. Being in early high school, I observed what a country club atmosphere really is . Don’t get me wrong, I learned a new sport and it’s rules. But behind the smoke and mirrors I saw the members living it up. And saw the average joes doing the greenskeeping or waiting tables or washing clubs. It just didn’t seem right with me that a select few could live that life style while the others were slaving it at the club. I’m sure we were just a tax right off for the club. And a token showing that they are trying too care about the other kids who never could experience golf. Remember telling my father one night what I experienced at the club. And he told me “ son , this is how the world is unfortunately” . A world of haves vs have nots.

Trying to enjoy a few beers on my deck and enjoy the fire pit I built today. Unfortunately my smart @ss son wants to grill me on Presidential history. He tells me I have a degree in history and I should know this sh!t.

What happened to my swing speed???  

As a quick update - been sick for two weeks. I could some kind of summer crud that resembled a head cold - got better but then my wife got sick (her's turned into brochitis)  and then mine just lingered on. So long story short I'm finally feeling good enough to go to the range but then also play 18 after. Using my Sc200, it was pretty evident how much this crud affected me. My SS was off by about 8 mph. Not sure if that's because I'm still a bit weak or I lost some muscle tone. Either way it'll be back to working out tomorrow.

When you find it let me know, I thinks it’s hiding in the same place as mine.
