I ran out of likes half way through this thread.

 

Oh well, I just got done playing 27 holes while drinking, listening to music and complaining about the old guys playing to slow and the young guys hitting it too far.

 

Guess I'm stuck in the middle.

Oh Scoo. Remember that time millenials demanded a participation trophy? I remember the first time I told my parents I had to have a trophy. Wait! I never did that. Thats right, peoples parents bought the trophies and demanded to know why my child didnt recieve a trophy. I got a participation trophy once when I was five and played soccer. From then on I didnt. Remember who raised this group of entitled people. Ill say it again, millenials didnt come out of the womb this way

Good morning everybody. Today I'd like to discuss those worthless Baby Boomers. Just kidding.

Have a great day all.

I'm playing golf tomorrow. How about you?

I've never understood that line of thinking... are you really blaming a 6 year old for receiving a participation trophy? Shouldn't the onus be on the parents who didn't want to have to, you know, parent their child through hard stuff like loss or falling short of expectations?

 

Sure, I got participation trophies. I have a box full of them somewhere. I also understood from a very young age that they weren't all that valuable because I would get one no matter what, as did most "entitled millennials". I just really hate this generalization stuff as a whole.

 

Something will have to give. Either millennials will have to change to conform to golf's oh-so-sacred traditions (e.g. gentrification, elitism, negative environmental impact), or golf will have to adapt to meet current and future trends in consumer preferences.

 

I find it funny that a generation that refused to follow in the footsteps of their parents is demanding that we follow in theirs.

Obviously, you're just "triggered." Lol

 

I'm the youngest player in the MGA at the club by about 30 years. Doubt I keep playing in it, because it's just a bunch of old @$$holes that cheat their sacred rules any chance they get.

 

Golf needs to go hipster. Embrace old school links-style courses that utilize natural land formations for routing and rain water and natural water for irrigation. Forget about all this precision milling that drives up the price of everything. Etc, etc...

And for some people, it can't change fast enough, while for others, its changing way too quickly.  Considering that the history of golf is 300 years or more, and the rules date back 270+ years, the pace of change has been reasonably slow.  To me, the recent "knee-jerk" rule changes, which seem to be an effort to cope with a couple or rather rare incidents and the publicity surrounding the incidents, are out of character with the well-considered pace of changes of the past.

The USGA has no accountability. The groove ban was the single most idiotic and destructive rules change in golf. Golfer's should've boycott the USGA tournaments in response that year.

This may not be the place to continue this particular discussion, but I'll ask anyway.  Exactly HOW was the change to the rules governing grooves "destructive"?

To this I'd say that golf DOES embrace old-school links-style courses.  But those courses are only possible where the geology, climate, native vegetation, and terrain are conducive.  A great deal of the early evolution of the rules was required as golf expanded away from the coastal linksland and into inland parkland settings.  The original 14 rules were all they needed when they played a specific links, and played only match play.

A young golfer joining a club, and expecting the club to change to suite his preferences is like someone emigrating to a different country, but not wanting to learn native language of his new country.....oh...wait.... :unsure:

The vitriol being exchanged in this thread is seriously bumming me out...all the way around. A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot help humbling others. Subsequently, this will be my only post in here.

Agreed. As a member of this community who holds it very dear to themselves personally, my question is what purpose does this thread serve to the community? Nothing positive is coming from this conversation. I'm bowing out after this post, and would highly recommend we all consider letting this thread take it's natural course. We have much better and more productive things to talk about as a community.

If you consider yourself a Millennial you might feel Triggered (LOL) by the following ----

 

Last night I was watching the golf channel and listening to a rather long discussion about the state of the game so to speak. Meaning golf in general. I know, we keep hearing this all the time. And, it's getting a little worn-out if you ask me. So basically last night the talkers were all worried about... get this; Millennials! I'm serious. Everyone seemed to agree except Chamblee somewhat that golf needs to change because Millennials are so unique and different. My goodness. I had no idea. I could hardly believe what I was hearing. It was as if a new species have settled on the planet and we must now accommodate them, change our ways, and perhaps most importantly change golf for them. What a bunch of horse$hit. Wikipedia defines this "cohort" as generally being born somewhere in the early 80's up to early 2000's. And again according to Wikipedia Millennials have increased familiarity with communications, media?, and digital technologies. Big Whoop. I could unravel those items easily but I'll save it. Still I suppose the Mills have quite a burden to bare and therefore they are special I guess.

 

From my narrow point of view I don't see the need to change golf to accommodate any group. Let alone Millennials. Or the elderly or baby boomers or some other X or Y generation. If you want to play and participate in the game welcome aboard. If not... have a nice day. You are not special or unique. The world doesn't revolve around you, me or anyone else.

Have a nice day. :)

people in the industry want to "grow the game, i.e their income". Grow the game? I can't get a tee time now. Change for any group? I'm so sick of that PC stuff, I could scream. "Sorry Dear. Just something on tv".

The game is a business. It's bad for the game to shrink. Could you imagine a CEO in any other industry saying 'ya know, I think we should stop growing and in fact we should shrink a bit'

That CEO would be laughed out of the board room and then out of his job
