I saw this on someone for the first time yesterday. He was around 60. A group of him and four other older guys saw me getting my clubs out and they all scrambled to get to the tee box before me.

Ole hat GPS guy forgot to strap his clubs in and when they took off the clubs went flying. I walked by and said "you didn't break any did ya?" and chuckled.
They could tell right away that you were a hack, so that's why they hurried to get in front of you.

They did see me putting on my FTUO Scotty Cameron Nipple Clamp Stroke Counter, so you're probably right.

Apologies if itís been mentioned; been awhile since I read this whole thing.
1. Head cover on a ball retriever
2. Not having a towel at all.
3. Not having a ball marker or pitch tool. And Iím obviously ok with someone using a tee to repair pitch marks but Iím talking people donít carry a tool & then wonít repair a mark the rare time they make one.

Every good player I’ve ever played with in my life that had a single strap bag carried it like this. When I was playing jr golf and just before the Izzo strap came out EVERYONE carried their bag like this. I would actually say the opposite of what you are saying. If you carry a single strap bag clubs forward you look more like a hack than if you carry it this way

Dear god, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Pretty sure every college player who ever carried a team jones bag carried it like this

Theyre just leaving the tee, within a few paces the base of the bag would be in their right hand and thèir left arm would be over the clubs heàds and holding the bag steady. If theyre not hackers.

Which accessory is used to look at other players equipment and clothing and judge them by it? ... because that is the one I'd pick to single out.  Just poking fun of course but honestly you cannot or at least should not ever judge someone by the stuff they dress in or use on the course. The guy with the martini glass tees and ancient golf shoes might be a +3 and drive a lambo for all we know.

Its a fair bet he isn't  and doesn't though!

A hacker takes his clubs out of the car and carrys his bag with the rain cover on regardless of the weather.  He then removes all his headcovers so that the woods will clang on each other when the cart hits a bump.  His hat will feature a club or manufacturer that disappeared a decade ago, e.g. R7, G2, HiBore.

funny, I use those tees, and lately, because it's been so hot and dry in my area, I just went out with my running shoes on. They have good tread to them but don't necessarily look like traditional golf shoes. Nonetheless,  After they see me hit the ball they realize I can play the game, so no snide remarks are made.

Only on range, heíll use one of those brush tees. Hack.
Twice lately he used one of those magnetic
Ball mark holders on the hat. Worked well. Itís Pretty small but still a total hack action.

I never would have ever thought of using iron covers until I bought a set of irons $350 per stick.

The question is, what is the definition of hack? My understanding is that it is someone who acts less professional then what is standard. Although, to me, a hack is someone thinking he is more upscale than what he really is. I guess when I read through a thread like this, I see a lot of people dissing others for the way they dress, items they may use, and so on as if it is beneath their level. I suppose someone could always be looked down upon by others above them until you get to be the top dog so to speak. Maybe there should be a thread started entitled 'confessions from the elite' , with those fit to reply in it confessing why they think they are better than others or better than they really are. What I gather in here is the majority of posters are not making a living off of golf, so consequently they can be looked down upon by those who are, resulting in them being hacks themselves. I will say this, there's nothing more enjoyable to me then teeing it up with my Martini tees, in my running shoes, with a magnetic ball marker attached to my hat, and whipping the hell out of some arrogant bluenose!
