Hate to Admit: Getting Satisfaction


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Is anyone else out there drawing the same satisfaction I am.  I am referring to the fact that I've watched every tournament on television since it started without fans, and find myself yelling aloud things like "how do you like that Brooks Koepka" and   take that Bryson DeChambeau, as I watch their golf balls go bounding off the fairway 40 feet underneath the trees, instead of being stopped in the first cut by the 10 deep crowd lining the fairway.  I have to admit I am happy they are getting a little taste of what we weekend hackers experience most times we play!!!!

I agree with that, and I also don't miss "Mashed Potatoes!" and the other ridiculous crap that drunken idiots yell out.  I don't mind people having a good time and a few more cocktails than they should; Lord knows I do that, but those screamers should be instantly tasered and removed.

the thing that stood out to me were the bunkers at the PGA with "not very much sand" and the players complaining that they couldn't get much spin on the ball.  HAHA! Welcome to our world.... 😉

Oh and very early on I actually heard, not confirmed by me though, that some were complaining they should get more time to look because there weren't going to be fans.  And welcome to life 30 yards over the green, because there is no grandstand to stop your ball 10 feet off the back.

I find myself watching a match and on a par 5 I'm still waiting to hear the " get in the hole" jackass. Hey moron, news flash it's a par 5 from the champion tees!

I'm finding these venues without patrons to be just fine.  Definitely do not miss the childish outbursts.

I totally agree.....with one exception.  The Masters. Always loved watching one situation and hearing a roar from somewhere and wondering who did what and how good was it.  The roar could have been really from anywhere on the course.

I remember Tiger once saying he couldn't play the old course without the stands because all of his notes are based off of the stands or tv towers

Wow, I never would have thought of that.
