we've all seen big john daly and angel cabrera and others smoking on the course...but does anyone know of any golf pro's who chew while playing out there?  disgusting habit as it may be, a nice dip out on the course is like heaven to me.

Boo
Leonard
Love
Kaye
Verplank
Duval
Gay

A whole bunch more.  The only one who is really loud about it is Boo.  

Rules:
1.  Don't spit on greens
2.  Throw your used dip out of sight
3.  Don't offend people by spitting all the time
4.  Don't be loud about it (like Boo)

Nothing really wrong with it.  I prefer the Swedish Snus myself when I play golf.

i tried the camel snus as it is new on the us market....didn't like it so much, would have probably needed about 3 up in my mouth to get the same effect as regular dip...it would be good for a businessman or something though!  something to consider when i graduate college! if i ever do! lol

Anything released here isn't real Snus.  You need to get some directly from Sweden.....either Ettan or General.

Or Grov.  I'm pretty sure that Svensk Snus is being distributed in the U.S. now.  I saw an ad for it in a magazine (Field and Stream??) recently.

this stuff will give you oral cancer faster than you can say "squamous cell carcinoma".  as a dental student, i highly recommend that everyone who does chew, quit right now.  this stuff is worse than smoking cigarettes (although smoking is also very bad for you).

They might not have it yet, but wait till they are finished with the tour years down the road and they have dentures and a** skin grafted onto their lips...maybe that will make them reevaluate their decision to put that crap in their mouth. Then again, what's a little crap in your mouth when you have a** skin grafts on your lips???

Skin grafts and dentures aside..

Nothing could look worse than some of the toupees that have been worn on the Champions Tour...

I'm so glad the morality police have shown up, yet again,  to advise adults how to live their life regarding a legal product.  Awesome job, everybody.

I like instances such as this.  I like them almost as much as when a luddite introduces a ball-rollback opinion in a new equipment or technology thread.  It's simply the bee's knees.

How about I help everyone out, and save us all some typing time, hmm?  

These threads are terrible, influential on juniors, poor examples, disgusting, yadda, yadda, yadda.  Then what about the cigar threads and favorite liquor threads, it's a double standard...TheVelvetCat, you're not taking this seriously....Yes, I am...I'm an adult, leave me alone....you should be concerned about rising health care costs regarding tobacco use.....Insert random mouth cancer survivor picture....Sorry I even started this topic....No, it's not your fault....Hey, guys let's keep the debate peaceful....I have a friend that was affected by this disease...I'm honestly sorry for your loss, but please don't dictate how I live... you're an idiot with a disgusting habit....How old are you anyway, Like 15?....When you can legally vote or buy this product, maybe you can have an opinion or lobby for a change in laws....until then, shut up....You're a disgusting slob with a horrible habit....and Locked Thread.

a-thankyou.  

What was the OP's original question again?  Oh yeah.  Tour Pros.  Legal age.  Legal product.  Carry on.

If you don't like a thread or topic or whatever...why do you post in it? Why do you read it? That's pretty stoopid if you ask me. Almost as ignorant as putting stankin' a** dip in your lip.
