Oh really? Ok fair dues then I guess. Hope you can see how it looked like bullying if you didn't see that post....

on another note. I'm kinda a closet thrillhouse fan, 9/10 lol hit rate with your posts. keep up the good work. :man_in_love:

Thanks man, I try to keep things humorous around here!

For the record, while this troll's schtick was more annoying than funny its hardly the way we would treat a woman who just likes golf and likes to post here, I think that the vast majority of us do our best to make most newbies feel welcome, no matter their gender.

Oh, and just because this thread has been derailed and we should probably get it back on subject I don't like Bubba. Posted Image

I think a lot of that deals with his ADD (don't know how to say it properly, because he hasn't been officially diagnosed) and it affects him in many ways both on the course, and in his interactions with fans and such. He does seem a bit awkward with fans at times, because I think he's trying his best to act and behave the way that people have always said a proper golfer should behave and that's just not him. Then again, I don't want to play psychologist here as I really don't have any clue but that's part of the mystique and appeal of Bubba to me. Nobody quite understands him, there's nobody else like him.

I read somewhere that he had aspergers.  That is one of the reasons why he is always missing small putts.

Your disappointed in us??

Someone comes on here acting childish and makes vulgar sexual remark and we tell them you grow up and you have a problem with that.

READ READ READ, that woman is known to be a man. Mods have already chimed in on it.

We encourage EVERYONE to post on hear and expect EVERYONE to post maturely.

If this was an LPGA thread and someone commented on "what they would do to them", I would for sure get on them for their lack of respect and  maturity.

You sir need a scotch and a nap, how dare you assume that I cheat on my taxes.

If you want Bubba as your favorite golfer that's cool, he plays a really entertaining style of golf. BUT you have to take good Bubba with bad Bubba. Bubba gets emotional on the course, when he wins he cry's, when he's not playing well he tends to start whining and moping, and well behaving a lot like Tiger, except he carries it from shot to shot (Tiger tends to let it go by the next shot) and can meltdown.

He does a lot of good things for fans, and gives good interviews, he's also been known to berate people and be in general a prima dona. With the whole France thing, he also refused to give interviews to the local press, which when you're the visiting star is just bad form.

There's a lot to like about Bubba, and a lot not to like, he's certainly not bland (which is awesome). But seeing him at his best (staged interviews, winning tournaments) doesn't give you a complete picture, anymore than seeing him at his worst would. Like anyone else

I thought it was good to see Bubba win. But the way he acts out there is a little...odd...at times. He definitely doesn't seem like a bad guy or anything, I was surprised when they said he's like 33. The way he acts and plays he seems like he's 23. I still think he could benefit from hitting some more standard shots. I get that he won the masters doing this, but there will be weeks where he can't execute quite as well and he's going to post big numbers and finish T37 instead of T8. I always thought that was one of the big things that separated great players from good players: Good finishing position without much game that week, which you do by controlling misses. That can be hard to do if you're trying to play a low forty yard hook with a nine iron from 180...in the middle of the fairway

He hangs out with Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan.. the 2 other biggest toolbags in golf.  That tells me all I need to know about him and his stupid pink driver.

How do you know that they're the "2 other biggest toolbags in golf?"

Come on man.. I'm not a RF fan in the least but that doesn't make him a "toolbag."

Quite frankly, not many people are going to share your opinion because your opinion is far from accurate.

Hell I like fowler and Bubba but Mahan something just screams Primadonna.

Where does the idea that one's faith or "religion" should be kept private come from?

God is the center of a true Christian's life so whenever asked about accomplishments, etc. He will probably be mentioned.

It would have to be a deliberate attempt by Bubba, Webb Simpson, or Tim Tebow to not talk about the most important thing in their life- is that what you want? A fake, incomplete version?

I can't believe this thread hasn't been closed yet.

Let me quickly add:  GREAT POST!!!!!!
