Yelling might not make the ball go straighter but it sure helps my 7-iron get wrapped around a tree. :-°

We could do a completely new thread about the most annoying thing about playing golf.

Tops on my list are:

Walking back three holes looking for the wedge that I left on the fringe right before that impressive three-putt.

The annoying girl in the beer cart who won't sell me anymore just because we've started shotgunning them.

Finding an old sandwich in your golf bag.

Don't get me started on that. There are so many things that annoy me on the golf course. :-°

But the old sandwich could be a good thing, as long as there isn't any mayo on it. :-D

You could also include:

*The starter, and the next 12 4-somes, staring at you as you tee off on #1.
*Playing in a 2-some behind a 4-some of 80 year old guys and having them not want to let you play through.
*Just getting ready to tee off with some hacker friends and having some single come up and join you.......as a walker no less while everyone else is riding.
*Not having a picture of the hole on your scorecard and having an uphill shot to a par 5. Instead of going to the top of the hill to check the situation out at the hole, you just stripe a 5-wood and fade it to what looks like the front right portion of the green only to drive up and see a pond there.

More to follow. :-°

Mookie, you want we should keep listing them here or are you going to start a new thread for this one too. :-b

-- Slow players
-- Carts :-P
-- Five hour rounds (I can easily walk 18 in 3 when there are no crowds, why is it so difficult with freaking golf carts?!? :-°)
-- The guys who spend more on their equipment than their game and think they're God's gift to golf, while hacking their way to triple digits, and taking 6 hours to do it.
-- Did I mention slow play?

Slow players get me as well. I don't need anyone to play speed golf but I also don't like someone that takes more time to hit a ball than Sergio used to. :-°

Right. I'm not wanting someone to just come up to the ball hack it then run down the fairway. You can have an enjoyable round playing at a decent pace. Most of the time is spent looking for balls that people spray all over the course. I just wish there was a way to enforce the search time limit, like a ball self destructs if there's more than 5 minutes between contact with a club. :-D
