"I was waiting on the tee for a group to clear the green on a short par 4 (310 yds.). The group behind us came along and started grousing about why I wasn't hitting. 'You can't reach that!' , 'Come on, Bubba, hit the ball!', and such. Soon the ranger pulled up and gave me a hard time, as well. I was getting mad, because I knew I could hit it that far, and I should be able to play the course the way I want to. Finally, the group in front moves on. I take one practice swing, then stripe my drive down the middle. But, about 100 yds out, it takes a violent turn to the left and flies into the trees. Boy, did I feel stupid."

"I'm warming up on the range before a round, and this guy parks his clubs beside me. I could hardly keep from laughing out loud when I saw he was wearing these God-awful pink and green Loudmouth pants, a pink shirt, and a Rickie-fanboy monoline hat. To complete the picture, he pulls out these blades and starts shanking ball after ball. I thought to myself, 'What a tool!'
I was playing as a single that day, and, sure enough, I get paired with the flamboyant shankasaurus, one of his buddies, and his brother-inlaw. It turned out he was a real nice guy. We knew a lot of the same people, so we chatted quite a bit. He also had the same handicap as me (but I beat him by one stroke that day ;) but who's counting). The irons he had were beautiful, and were a gift from his father. 'I struggle with them, at times, but I keep trying.' I had to ask him about the outfit. He said he won the shirt and pants in a tournament, and knew it would annoy his brother-inlaw so he wears it whenever they play together. Lol! "It's really comfortable, too. So it's a win-win'.
I could never wear that in a million years, but he seemed to more down to earth that I first thought."

Or a reply like this:
"I see how you could come to that conclusion, but I disagree. You seem like a nice enough guy - we should play a round of golf sometime and debate it more thoroughly."

Or, from KYMAR:
"I'm speechless".

Please add your own.

"I played 18 today and was moving a bit slow.  The ranger came by and let me know, and I immediately picked the pace up"

"I was behind a foursome of beginners today who were really struggling.  I waited patiently behind them since I remember when I used to struggle too"

"I went to Golfsmith today and was helped out by one of the most knowledgeable, friendly sales guys I've ever dealt with"

Well I had been playing the same set of irons I bought in 1985 so I decided it was time to update my bag. I went to a local store here in town thats been there forever. I had a complete fitting and tried various combinations of heads and shafts. I had them build the perfect set for ME! and paid full price and was completely satisified with the transaction. I think I am good for another 25 years.

By the way I am a HUUUUGE Tiger fan and I would love to see him and Phil team up in the next Ryder cup. I hope Davis will put them together.

-I have no strong opinion on Tiger Woods
-Check out this awesome club i have, i paid retail for it
-I really like the badge in these irons
-I got into an argument on the course, i feel bad because i was the one at fault
-I saw this kid throw a club the other day at the course, but he will probably grow up one day and realize he's wrong to do things like that, we probably shouldn't over-react
-The marshalls at my local course are great guys
-I learned a lot from the salesperson i spoke to the other day, he knew more about golf then me
-Excellent article from the golfwrx staff writers. I thought it was very well written
-Hey, hey, remember we're allies and friends here. Let's not get too heated over the ryder cup

-"yup, i basically got it off the rack" (pure745)
-"look, i know people are saying it's tough, but if you believe you can make it on tour, then you've got a shot" (thrillhouse)

10- You would not believe all the compliments I got on my khaki pants and navy polo...
9- I'm hitting my RBZ 17 yards shorter than my old Big Bertha woods...
8- I can't believe how much better I putt with my MnBr Anser over my milled [insert OEM here]...
7- The check I'm getting with these Pinnacles around the green is unreal!!!
6- I wish I could hit the driver long like Justin Leonard does...
5- Every tournament I play in, the players have staff bags.  If we saw someone with a carry bag, we'd laugh them off the course...
4- My wife was upset that she didn't have to bring in 2 boxes off the front porch today.  She said if I don't start buying more clubs, she's gonna leave...
3- I felt inferior to the rest of my group for not having iron covers like they did...
2- The R510TP is the worst club ever made...
1- Christina Kim is hawt!!  Who else touches themselves thinking about her?

Hi guys! Tiger Woods here, (long time lurker first time poster LOL) I really enjoy reading about myself on the internet and I care about what each and everyone of you think about me!

You know what? That's a great point! You actually changed my mind!

It's not about scores at all. It's about having fun and getting some exercise with my friends

Looking back on it, I wish I never even took up the game.

Hey guys, here is how I am working on my mental game...

All in good fun, I love this site!

Ahahahaha these are the ones that make me laugh the most. I'll leave my $90 puma pants and $75 puma shirt at home when going to the range. T shirt and athletic shorts for me (PGA apprentice)

I wish it would snow already because I am tired of playing golf.

I wish Chris Burman would do more PGA events.

Just by watching Hall and Breed I was able to perfect my swing and now I am a low single digit cap.

I miss Eric on Morning Drive.

Gal really is the hottest golfer.

My 150 club is my 7 iron.

You know, I don't think you guys have been negative at all.  And after some further thought, as a 10 handicap I have to agree with you guys.  i probably shouldn't give up my career and break up my marriage to chase the PGA Tour.  I'm just going to try my best to be as good as I can in my spare time and have fun with the game.

That Johnny miller has some interesting insight!

The track man data proved I'm as long as I thought!

I'm a 25 handicap, I accept that I shouldn't play blades.

This made for shaft is awesome!

I played with a guy who rolled the ball, took mulligans, and picked up his 3 footers, but I'm ok with it because his score has no bearing on me whatsoever.

I opened my wallet and paid out my losses after our round. It's cool, can't win all the time.

My junior golfer finished DFL and doesn't dress head to toe in designer clothes. Just a regular kid struggling with his game. There's good days and bad days. The day he has a $4,000 bag is the last day he plays golf. School is more important.

I struggle with my short putting. 2-3 footers are very challenging to me.  

My last 5 rounds have been 67, 69, 73, 77 and 69..... And I'm a sh***y golfer. (Wait, I've actually seen this so my bad.)

I never owned any ping eye 2's, I just didn't think they were very good.

I only carry a 1/2 set of clubs, its lighter and I don't really hit it consistently or far enough to have big gaps between all my irons.

I went to the shop and bought a new driver, its a bomber and NO I will not tell any of you what it is.
