Sorry , you asked and I answered. I have hit balls over people's head (not directly but close enough) on a couple of different occasions. They were deserving and got the point. Not sure what else to tell you.

This response tells me everything I need to know.

Bye Felicia.

Just curious, if you miss hit one of those warning shots and actually hit the person is your response going to still be that they deserved it?   If they hit the ball back at you, because they felt you deserved it does that justify their action?

In a thread about "loss of etiquette", this seems to be the most blatant example.  Nobody deserves to be put in danger of injury due to slow play, or anything else.  And you're not a newcomer to the game, or an immature kid, you're someone with the age and experience to know better.

being able to teach a younger person proper etiquette and that starts with his coach and parents

I agree wholeheartedly that we need to teach kids proper etiquette (and the kid in question does sound like an a**hole), but you're assuming that:

1.  His coach knows proper golf etiquette (and cares about it)
2.  His parents know proper golf etiquette

My older daughter's HS coach barely knew which end of the club to hold.  He coached the team so the school could have a golf team.  They were all good kids who knew how to play, but the coach was just there to be there.

My younger daughter's HS coach (different schools - our kids can apply to different schools) is a 3 handicap and allows exactly zero crap on the golf course.

Lots of kids out there are playing (which is awesome) but don't really have a good golf role model (which is not good).  We all had someone to show us the ropes when we started playing.  Parent, grandparent, caddymaster (FWIW, the caddymaster where I looped barely knew which end of the flag to pull out of the green) or a friend. 

I'm not cutting this particular kid any slack (everything sounds pretty premeditated), but when it comes to "all these new people ruining the game" - I have no time for that nonsense.  You can show people the right way get themselves around the golf course and be a decent person while doing it.
