    Re: How do you vent? Garcia Style or....

    I was a serial club chucker in my youth. Much calmer these days and just swear at my own incompetence. I try and use the ten yard rule these days and once over that imaginary line that's the end of my anger, Regroup and focus on the next shot

If I have a bad hole now I vent my frustration by throwing the ball away. They are a lot cheaper than a new club or shaft.

    I sometimes throw my ball towards the next tee. That's even cheaper again.

He was so annoyed he picked up his ball and hurled it into the trees about 30 yards away! my, how we laughed :-)

    Re: How do you vent? Garcia Style or....

    I learned from a very early age never to show any emotion on the course.
    I was brought up that way within a well respected golfing family and I would never dare to do anything that would cause them embarrassment.

    For some reason I have always associated bad tempered club throwers with wife beaters.
    Funny how you never see women club chuckers so the reverse does not apply.

    Good effort! I'm a club thumper and swearing typhoon after a particularly bad shot, but I always apologise to those around me after my explosions and then just get on with it.

    Re: How do you vent? Garcia Style or....

    Mostly I just laugh at myself because it's not that big a deal. But sometimes, just sometimes, it gets the better of me and I'll chuck up a ball and try and hit it into a neighbouring field like a baseball shot. I never make contact.

    So usually, I just concentrated on murdering the hell out of the ball off the next tee. That invariably ends in a bad shot, and I get back to laughing at myself again.

    Re: How do you vent? Garcia Style or....

    I definitely don't do what Garcia does.

    It's not in my nature.
    I'm not a pro so I'm not making a living from it.
    I don't have an equipment contract so can't just get another club for free.
    I discuss forum threads, therefore I am

    Well if that's as explicit as you get, then not a good idea to play a round with me or Kraxx at the moment, I dare say we could teach you a few new ways of using expletives in sentences. In recent rounds it has been known for entire sentences to be formed entirely of expletives.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.
