What are some of your unpopular opinions when it comes to golf?


Recommended Posts

People who take the game too seriously are my unpopular opinion.
I love to drink, play music and have fun on the course.  If you don't like it then don't play near me.

Couldn’t have said it better.

Alcohol should be consumed after the round, not during. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Since we're doing unpopular opinions, I'll state this one more strongly than I am fully convinced of: every Tour event should follow Augusta's policy of disallowing all phones on the premises. There's

So you’re saying these dudes should have a 6er before a fitting? Get real life performance.

1. Jack Nicklaus courses, specifically his green structures. His layouts are great, but he designed every green to test the devil himself.

 

2. Want to speed up golf? Make it so that once a player putts, they must continue to putt until they are in the hole. 

 

3. Loud music on the course. Really, any music on the course. I don't care if you drink a fifth and smoke a bong, but I don't want to hear your music. Ever.

I enjoy a beer or a good cocktail too, just after the round. I find it fascinating the amount of time, effort, and money many golfers spend on launch monitor fittings, shaft upgrades, etc., only to drink on the course.

All true, but when you are playing with guys that aren't serious about the game, and just out to have a fun day, you just go with the flow.... so to speak. 🍺 😉

Agreed. Golf is a game. Games are supposed to be fun.

Agree that Jack was a great player, so-so architect at best.
Have to say, if I’ve had a fifth and few bong hits, I really won’t care about your opinion of my music, LOLZ... 🤣

Agree, just cause there's a ton of sand doesn't make them great. Give me Ross and Tillinghast any day.

I think for me it's the constant effort to trick the player. His teeing grounds never really point down the fairway, there are always awkward angles (both off the tee and on approach), he likes to use a lot of competing breaks on the greens to fool you on the reads, all of that just gets tiresome. Plus I'm from C Indiana where we have a lot of early Dye efforts and Dye redesigns and after a while you just get like "yeah, yeah Pete Dye whatever"

1. Trees are awful on a course and eliminate options or force only one option of how to play a hole.

2. Former players generally make terrible course architects.

3. Golf is supposed to be fun, but due to poor marketing, majority of players take it and themselves too seriously.
