If I see or hear one more debate over the merits of a CP release over a CF release, one plane over two plane or stable axis versus not, I am going to start beating people to death with their Scotty Cameron special limited edition scratch custom school colored initial embroidered head covers that weren’t even made for them, but they bought on ebay for $250 so they could be an MTD without even knowing what that is.
What’s even worse is these debates are being started by 20 handicaps and people with perfectly manufactured swings that can’t break 80.
This is the kind of thing that drives me nutz.
I heard a guy the other day who looked like he couldn’t break 90 working on a CP release because all golfers with CF releases, including Jack Nicklaus (who he singled out), had flawed golf swings and if he had an ugly multiple plane swing like Fred Couples, he’d have to quit.
What he ended up with was the worst handle pulling karate chop motion I have ever seen that produced at least four shanks that I saw. Yet there was no shortage of techno jargain spewing from his mouth.
Then some 130 pound dork rolls up and starts giving lessons to everyone talking about leverage and accumulators and pontificating about how he gained 20 yards when he started loading #2 better…proceeded to put a perfect swing on it and block slice it about 230.
I deal with this every day at the range and on the net. Plenty of good advice is given out in the real world and on the net, but often I cannot distinguish between the driving range and a simian feces fight at the zoo.
Can’t we just try and link things up a litter better and turn a little better?
Here is what a lot of this stuff sounds like to me.
A lawyer…”The next time a cop pulls you over and you think you might be over the legal limit, throw him off balance when he comes up to the window to ask for license, registration and proof of insurance…ask him to super size your number 3 combo with a coke.”
A doctor…”Having trouble sleeping??? Put on a shower cap, run full speed and launch yourself head first into the side of the tub.”
I know, I know…rant, jerk, know it all, where are my PGA Tour Victories if I’m so good and know so much?
Good thing the “hold the lag” debate is on the downturn or I was on my way to being labeled the real life Howard Beale.
I am just tired for the golfing public…of which I am a member…and all of you expect a rant from me once in a while. Some of the conversations I hear on the range from pro and amateur range guru alike make me want to become a serial wedgist.
Which means I want to go up to every techno spouter and yank his underwear elastic over his head. That would create a vulgar double entendre.
See how many of you get that obscure reference. 😀
