4. Never play or bet on a golf game against a new guy whose glove hand has no tan.

Sage advice. I used to say be watchful of a double digit handicapper who has a dime worn in to all his scoring irons.

Never once have I seen or heard random people on the range giving advice that is the least bit worthwhile! One of my best friends used to try to say crap during rounds, unsolicited. Maybe at a place like Sea Island, Lake Nona, etc, where a TON of pros live and practice could one go to the range and get some REAL help!!! Ha! There's probably some Shmo giving advice to pros there too!

ran across this today.... perhaps you should move around a bit at the range?

 

http://www.golfdigest.com/story/youve-been-practicing-golf-all

 

I've done this in the past, I have a "driver" section, "irons" section, "wedges" section and move back and forth through a bucket.

Estimating a 2 putt on each hole

3 balls = par 5 (driver/3w; mid iron; wedge)

2 balls = par 4 (3w/long-iron; wedge)

1 ball = par 3 (mid-iron/wedge)

 

NO REPEATS.... your shot is your shot... if you yank one then you have to "punch out" or use your imagination about what you would do to 'rescue' the hole and do that... could be a sharp draw, fade, low punch, whatever..

Been there, part of the reason I bring earbuds to the driving range not always listening to music but it does make a difference in how much people talk to me.

Don't know if that's more of a problem in the US, but I've never seen anybody here giving unsolicited advice. Everybody is minding their own business.

I've started "playing" the first 3 or 4 holes of my course on the range first. Not sure if it really helps or not. Haven't noticed a change in my scores

Please do!

Hilarious...

What I've encountered so far is that every time I "set up" most trolls shy away. Best I've got is what's that? I set up at the far end and do the 2 cameras Iphone and iPad Pro on tripod with my swingbyte 2, no one dares to me near me like I'm carrying a virus or something.

If I win a lottery instead of going around playing golf every where I think it's going to be more enjoyable & entertaining if I show up at your guys driving ranges and give lessons. iPhones, cameras, earbuds they're not going to stop me because "I AM A TEACHER" ROFLMA. hehehe. [emoji13]

Shower thought: Uncle Si is totally that dude that would give unwarranted, terrible advice on the range.

 

I think that's what he does in almost every episode.

Yup he does give wrong advise. That's why everyone likes him.

Who does this??? I can't imagine why someone would think that behavior is okay.

I think their intentions are good; they want to help. But they can't. Their "advice" may apply to themselves (or other 30 hdcp golfers), but not you.

Yep. I was going to reply. Now I see why MDGolfHacker wears earbuds on the range.

 

Oh hell. Wait a minute. Maybe he's trying to tell me something. LOL

I know this thread is getting a little older but I saw this meme and just had to add it.

I've never encountered a range troll that I recall. But some of my golf buddies are Course Trolls. As they are well along their way to shooting an 87 and I'm staring down a 75 they seem to think I need some advise. Excuse me please but you worry about your own game pal.

At least they're "trying" to help. I've got friends that almost actively root against me to the point that they call me a d* for hitting a nice shot.

Well, for me, it's like I shoot 85 and my friends who "help" me shoot 95. 😊

 

I am not that good either...
