That would be a thread of the year contender.

"How would you describe the culture on here ?"

Generally sexist
Occasionally racist (mainly the poms)
Parochial
A battle between the funny and unfunny
Sometimes golf related

What are you saying?

 

Just sounds Aussie to me.

Hi Gents,

Would just like to know what everone enjoys most about playing the great game? In turn what do you all dislike about getting out for a hit?

I enjoy the thrill of trying to play better. It's a long game to play and one that generally doesn't come with overall gratification for a total score, but when you do score better than your last best it is an enjoyable experience. 

You do, of course get instant gratification of a well struck shot, or sinking a putt

 

I dislike that I am not in a position to play as well as I used to when I was younger.

I dislike whingers and moaners on the course, always looking outside for an excuse for why they didn't make a putt or why the ball bounced sideways from th erough, or a good one is they whinge when their ball lands in a divot in the rough under a tree and they don't get a perfect lie after chunking their drive 120m from the tee.

I don't like cart drivers who rush up the fairway in front of the rest of the group, it shows that they feel more self entitled than the rest of us and it makes them look foolish, they always seem to have better lies - even in the rough

I don't like how some traditions of the game are being eroded, particularly dress code. I can't fathom why it is too difficult to wear a neat polo shirt - tucked in and a pair of tailored pants with a leather belt. I see people with all the latest gear and gadgets but claim that pants are too dear and they wear something more akin to shopping at the weekend markets.

 

well that does look a lot like there is more that I dislike than I do like, but I can assure you that I love the game and there will always be a lot more that I do like than I don't like

I like it sir, you appear to be quite the intelligent fellow

 

but when you say leather belts, is there room for some coloured belts too?

this answer will make or break what I think about you

Wait, that's it ... the key to a faster swing ----> COLOURED BELT. I knew, just knew, there was a piece of equipment that would fix the problem. Just totally overlooked the golfing attire aspect.

And BINGO was his name-oh!
You got it brother, the clothes maketh the man and without a great coloured belt to compete the outfit, you just can't swing as hard as you can otherwise!
