    I think that proves that way too many people on this forum have no sense of true etiquette and only adhere to the rules of golf when it suits them.
    I'm sorry but no one in this thread has said they show anything but consideration towards their PP - I have played with a good deal forum members at meets up and down the country and every single one has been respectful, adhere to the rules of golf and follow clear etiquette

    Extremely poor post to point fingers of accusation at people like that

    What I have found out though is talking to your PP throughout the round means you are a hacker and don't take the game seriously- apparently

    Nothing better than ripping your zip down fast on your bag when youre PP has just gone 1 up and is in his back swing You can tell it affects people differently by the size of the divot they create, which at times goes further than the ball

    How does this cover myself when I'm talking and hitting at the same time? I can't bare the silence. It's distracting!
    Silence I find is too taxing and makes me overthink. I need to be swinging subconsciously. I need to be loose and ideally breathing.
    Ill add that I'm quiet when it's required!

    Re: Playing partners talking

    Golf is a social game and it is good to chat. However, the one thing that this thread has taught me is, when I next play with someone I haven't played with before, I need to ask them at what point in their shot preparation do they want me to keep quiet.

    Or just play it safe and finish talking as they start their practise swings. I don't think we need to over-complicate things. When I'm playing with people I haven't played with before I just try and only talk when we're walking, then there's no grey area.
