Wait a minute... is this thread so meta that now people are complaining about complaining?  Or has it morphed into a thread about actual complaints rather than identifying the most played out complaints as was the original intent?

Can it be both?  Is that even possible?

I’d like to see a post that is actually critical of its own existence.

Actually, I just thought of one.

Why can't every player at every tourney have every shot broadcast live?

Oh, and people bitching about people who seem redundant because they didn't read every single post before posting!

I may have a vested interest in that one in this thread.

Numbers prove that any Male scratch to 6 handicap that hits it 300 yards and travels well can beat an....LPGA, Senior, Web.com or PGA tour player, especially if it is a .......yard course or my local Municipal course.

The “Pro’s” would not score well at my local course, they are used to plaiying perfect pristine courses.

If I could practice all day and had the money, I could be a ......, too.

When I go to the range, course, putt putt, there is “that guy”, he always singles me out and I am a 2 handicap?

I would never join a Country Club, because.......

I would never play public golf.....because....

Can I wear.........??

"I think it's laughable how some people can give an opinion on a club having only seen pictures. I wait until I hit it"

And my all time favourite...

"It's ridiculous that a bunch of hackers are on here criticising *insert tour player here* for their wedges. Guys a professional golfer and hits the ball better than all of you"

Both complaints have been aired recently and it took me by surprise that golf nuts on a golf forum would have the audacity to share an opinion  based on the look of a club or a Tour pros lackluster wedge stats.

Best of it is you only have to go into another thread to see the complainants doing exactly that with other clubs/tour players.

I hate reading "the new clubs don't do anything, i hit my (insert old club here) just as good as anything out there now"

i guess i'm being anal, i would just prefer a simple answer like "I tried it and didn't see an advantage, didn't want to spend the money, didn't liike the look, etc"
