    Wouldnt just outright ignore.

    IMO the delivery was wrong, could have been given as good advice in much better way. Maybe a constructive 1 on 1 conversation based on observation?

    Re: Uncalled for comments

    Bottom line is only you & he know what the context/tone was (humor can be delivered dead-pan, there’s not always a Ba Dum Tsh to let you know)

    How did you react/what did you say, what did he reply? These answers would’ve confirmed for you what the original intent was in his comment

    If you didn't do or say anything or react in anyway.... well you'll never know i'm afraid & we're not much help

    Re: Uncalled for comments

    To those that have said to not be sensitive or offended, I was neither of these, but did think that the comment made was ill considered.

    The point of this thread was more to the point that some guy that I do not know and have never played with, made such a comment in the way that he did.
    I would totally understand if our group had been holding up play (which we weren't - we kept up with the group in front and at times were waiting on the tee for said group to hole out).
    I'd also understand if I continuously sprayed the ball left or right from the tee or fairway, again this was certainly not the case except for a few wayward shots...something that the vast majority of us are guilty of.

    Re: Uncalled for comments

    You say you're not offended but it does sound a wee bit like it got to you more than you've admitted to

    So what’s more likely:

    • Some bloke you don’t know and doesn’t know you, overhears a conversation he’s not part of and decides to add an unhelpful & untrue comment anyway
    • There was lots of post round socializing going on and one liners flying and it was intended as banter (or even helpful advice) and was made with a poor delivery
    • The only other scenario I can think of is that it was a comment between him and his mates & you weren’t supposed to hear at all


    Either way it doesn’t sound like you’ll lever find out so best put it behind you

    Unfortunately there is a small minority of golfing clientele that fit the bill of the golfing stereotype!

    If the comment came from a member of your socialising party I would of took it as banter. However it didn't. The bloke is a pig ignoranus. If you know you of your faults and are new to the game fellow members should be helping you.

    My centiments exactly 'arrogant as f#*+' gladly I can say I've not experienced any of this sort of behaviour at our club but then I do work at the club (green keeper) and I'm not the most approachable of people at first glance, 14/15st and 5'9 of ex-boxer/biker meathead, I got arms like a silverback, hands like Devon shovels and a skin head, I'm a nice bloke though when you get to know me, honest !...

    Re: Uncalled for comments

    I usually find a comment to fire back in response at times like these. If it can illicit some laughter from the others in the group as well so much the better.
    Forever trying.

    Re: Uncalled for comments

    The OP, from my interpretation, suggests it wasn't banter... if so then the guy is a disgrace to club golf... if it's banter, then pretty standard joke...

    We sit here and wonder why club golf in the country is in decline when people suggest someone is being overly sensitive or should man up in these situations..? I would suggest this is one of many other reasons why the game is in decline at a club level and golfers have a pretty poor stereotype...
