Title: Any of you dudes play golf?
Post by: A Dude on July 22, 2013, 08:49:02 PM
It's my bowling. I have just one friend I'll play with, he has the playing mindset I do. We don't keep score, have a few beers and just have fun. I have played with a few that were die hard golfers, had to keep score and you had to follow the rules to a T. Man, did they take all the fun out of it.

I tried once years ago (mostly as a hobby to do with my dad).  I didn't have any game, though, and my mindset was very uptight.  I wonder how I'd do now...

Now, disc golf, that's another story. I do enjoy me a round of frolf with a few cold ones and some friends.

I tried twice with my stepdad but it just wasn't my thing, I do love me some mini-golf though lol.

I worked out at the local country club when I was younger and learned one valuable lesson... a golf course is the only place in America where it's legal to drink and drive hahaha.

I did enjoy that job though, just riding along on my zero-turn mower jammin out with my headphones 8) good times.
We had one of those John Deere Gators too, man they were fun, we'd always sneak into the woods at lunch to blaze up before heading back out to finish mowing :)

I wonder if they'll be needing any summer help next year lol

Golf, a great way to wander around on a lawn some one else mowed, drink beer with friends and enjoy the out doors. The only reason to keep score is to figure out who is buying the first round at the 19th hole.

I've thought about trying golf like that -- screw the score, etc. Watching golf on tv is about as much fun as watching flies fuck. I'm guessing that playing it is better, though. For some reason, people in this state take golf seriously so it's hard to find someone who wants to play like that.

Ive been golfing most of my life as golf is in my family as they say. I've even been a club champion and I always remember the last round just going out and enjoying myself. I didn't even know my score until the other player gave me my card and didn't know I'd won until the people in the club house were congratulating me.
I love golf but can see the ridiculousness about it also. Robin Williams gives a good description if you look him up on YouTube (sorry I'm to lazy to find the link)

Played the game with my stepdad a few times as a little acheiver, but don't really partake these days. Still love mini golf though, as long as the course isn't loaded with morons cuz that just stresses me out man.

Obviously I'm not a golfer; but I will admit to shootin' a few golf balls now and then on the driving range with some dudes over a few beers and later a few burgers.

I love golf but don't get to play as much (or as well) as I'd like. It's a very Zen/Tao-esque experience in my amateur opinion. You're outside, in nature, absorbed in a shell of relative silence and calm. You have to focus on the moment: hit the ball, find it, hit it again. You aren't actively engaged against an opponent but, rather, yourself or the course. Thou shalt not be a paraquat or the course marshal will escort thee from the premises.

The only fascist element is the dress-code at some nicer courses. I'm not wearing swim trunks and a wife-beater so loosen up, Franklin. All of that pretense is just a bit too Bushwood for my tastes.

You aren't actively engaged against an opponent but, rather, yourself or the course...

Mark it eight, Dude.  My dad was such a good golfer that he probably could have gone pro if life had led him in that direction; he started teaching me how to play as soon as I was old enough to hold a club.  Hitting a little ball with a crooked stick just so you can go find it and hit it again might sound like a fool's errand, but I also found it to be very Zen-like for the reason you stated--your focus in that moment, mind and body working together.  And yet, I'm also reminded of the Bruce Lee quote, "It is not, 'I am doing this,' but rather, an inner realization that 'this is happening through me,' or 'it is doing this for me.'  The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action.?  You're giving yourself over to the moment while being completely in the moment.  Bowling is similar, but being indoors doesn't allow you to tap into the energy of the nature around you as easily.  And, as you wrote, even though I played with friends, I only ever played against myself.

Unfortunately, I had to have surgery in 2004 to repair a herniated disc in my lower back and wound up with Post-Laminectomy Syndrome (a.k.a. Failed Back Syndrome), which is a fancy-schmancy way of saying I'm still in chronic pain even though they repaired the defect; it's so common they had to come up with a name for it.  So, for all intents and purposes, my golfing days (and my bowling days, for that matter) are over.  It's a bummer, man, but on the bright side my reduced mobility allows me to lead a more Dudely lifestyle.  Ups and downs, strikes and gutters.  Life goes on, man.

Damn, man. Sympathies on the back problem. I have a nerve issue in my upper back and know a little of how fast back problems can lock you down.

The other dudeist part of golf, just thought about it, is the harder you try the worse you generally do. Try to hit it 300 yards and you'll topspin the fucker about 15 feet in front of you.  Focus on breathing, rhythm, and pace...then, boom, the little white ball goes out there 260. I prefer walking when circumstances permit, too. Shoot better, enjoy it more, and really the round is just about as fast.

I was a baseball player. College and semi pro.
Golf was always a punch line.
Like when you don't make the playoffs "there is always golf".
Sort of salt in the wounds.

Thanks, I appreciate it.  I have good days..well, better days...and not so good days, and at this point I've just sort of gotten used to taking it as it comes and dealing with it.

A friend once commented, "For a game I enjoy so much, I can't figure out why I go home so pissed off."  And in my experience, that's true--you hit a couple of bad shots, get irritated, try harder, and you end up getting in your own way.  I prefer walking myself; it sounds contrary, but I find it more relaxing than having to constantly climb in and out of one of those carts.

Hey, Al... You ever try Nintendo Wii golf or bowling?

The reason I ask is - I've had back issues since the mid 90's; like you I don't have "good" days as much as "better" ones... And it's actually something I can do on those days. You don't have to do the full motions (involving your whole body) and can keep everything in your arms.

(I know, I know... playing a video game isn't like really bowling or golfing, or anything... But I'll tell you what dudes... It's a blast and in this case something is better than nothing, least for me). I can bowl 10 lanes in the comfort of my domicile and enjoy home made beverages that are more modestly priced options than "the club house"  8)

And 13, looks like you had a blast, man. What a beautiful looking day!

Hey, Al... You ever try Nintendo Wii golf or bowling?

Not Wii, no.  We have a Playstation 2...well, we had a Playstation 2.  I mean, we still have it, but it died three or four years ago and I haven't gotten around to replacing it yet.  When I do I'll probably get another Playstation (whichever version is available at the time) simply because I already have a bunch of Playstation games and I don't really want to have to start all over again and replace them with Nintendo games.  One of 'em is a golfing game that I enjoy--it's not quite the same as the real thing, but I have fun with it (or, at least I did before the PS2 died) and it does kinda' satisfy those golfing urges.

For whatever reason I never checked to see if they have a bowling game for the Playstation console(s); I'd guess they do, but until I get a new console there's no reason to look into it.  I'm not a good bowler in real life, but I can't remember ever going bowling and not having fun regardless of how poorly I performed, so that is something I'll have to look into (for the Playstation, that is).  As the comedian Gallagher once said, "Bowling's an excuse to get drunk.  And drunk is an excuse for your bowling."  I think the Dude would agree.  Then again, bowling is one of the few things he seems to take seriously, so maybe not.  ;D

Me I'm more xbox than golf (Far Cry 4 anyone?).

How is Far Cry 4? I've been addicted to Destiny most of these months. I hate and love it all at once, it's weird.

I'm finding it really good fun.

I bought one of the early versions (FC1) for the map editor, but this one (FC4) has lots of little subtleties.

For instance all the weapon and equipment (loot) is upgradeable, not new in itself, but the way you do it is to kill and skin animals. Weapons slots are governed by your "holster". To get two slots you have to collect two skins, three slots three skins, four slots four skins, but the twist is the animal you have to get changes for each level. If you kill them with a bow and arrow you get more skins, imagine trying to kill a bear or a tiger with a bow without being killed. Multiply this across about eight different areas loot, weapons, etc (http://www.primagames.com/games/far-cry-4/tips/far-cry-4-crafting-guide-wallets-syringes-ammo-bags).

And that's just the equipment. I'm trying to work out how to kill a rhino with a bow and arrow at the moment.

That's without the normal bits taking radio towers and outposts, killing revenge convoys.

Then there's a couple of guys living in your house (your characters dads old house). The first time you meet them they drug you and you end up in a gladiator style battle, second time they drug you and you end up in Shangri-la, third time and they drug you and they enhance your perception so you can look through walls.

That's not even half of it.

As you can see I'm not really enjoying it at all.

;D

...Golf, the dress code enforcement isn't cool at all.

In my experience that's only at the uptight, elitist, private courses where you have to be a member just to pull into the parking lot.  I've only ever played at the public "pay as you play" courses, and unless you're wearing something that's truly offensive (think "Wal-Martians") they don't really bother you about it.  That being said, if I was forced to wear "golf" clothes (not counting the shoes; they do help) I wouldn't play either.
Title: Re: Any of you dudes play golf?
Post by: jgiffin on January 18, 2015, 12:33:49 AM
Dress codes for golfing are outdated, elitist, counterproductive bullshit. I love golf. If I play a lot that year, I can shoot in the 80s. If I can't get out much, it's more like a buck-oh-five. But I consistently shoot better when comfortable. That doesn't include slacks and a tucked-in polo shirt. Sorry. I'm a khaki shorts and Tommy Bahama (style, not necessarily brand, but they're solid, too) guy. Last time I checked, LeBron didn't play in a three-piece suit.

Example. I played in a charity outing last year. Attended the dinner/auction afterwards and bid on a package for 18 holes at a nice local course I had played earlier that summer (wearing shorts and Tommy Bahama). Ended up winning the auction. Took my brother with me. The 20 year old schmuck at check-in hassled me because my shirt wasn't tucked in and my brother because his shorts had cargo pockets. Fucking fascists. I gave a courtesy tuck that lasted twenty minutes and said, "You want him to take 'em off?"

My brother is a two-handicap (I think, it could be one shot either way now) and tore up the course...even with pockets. I just loaded up on beer, hit bombs, and skulled pitches. Typical day. It was progress for me not to blow-up at the dude or hassle the members about the attitude. But I'm not going back. There are better courses to garner my charity dollars.

Dude we are more than happy for you to contribute, but there are rules (this is not Nam).

It's not personal offense, but even Google are cracking down on certain types of Blogger (http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/feb/24/google-warns-sex-bloggers-to-clean-up-or-get-out?CMP=EMCNEWEML6619I2).

Personally I am a regular frequenter of YouPorn, but I don't post it here.

This is not a boys own club, and I'm sure there are many more much more suitable forums for this sort of thing.

After all this is a Dudeism forum not a Karl Hungus Forum.

Indeed I was confused, I thought an innocent pic of me at work with the girls would be fine, un-censoring would have just shown their covered butts.

Comparing it to porn is weak sauce Bro...
Comparing me to a sex blogger is ludicrous and frankly, EXTREMELY personally offensive, you sure this aint 'Nam? 

Minor innuendo was meant for banter and wake up a somewhat sleepy forum, obviously I was politically incorrect to post it and I apologize. God knows I don't want to get this forum shut down because I mentioned strippers or tearing down a motorcycle. :'(

Dude quite simply someone proposed an entire thread dedicated to yourself, which I said no to.

If you want to take the other stuff personally that's fine, the comment was for general consumption because the forum has moved to a bit of a lads club recently and I was just reminding members we do have Dudes looking in from work, and not all Dudes are male in persuasion (and in opposition to the reputation we have) this is not a misogynistic organisation and we don't encourage the same even if it was meant as banter.

You want to take the comments personally that's your hat and your entitled to wear it.

But have a quick look at the agreement that you signed up for when you joined the forum first.

Oh and finally you put up a picture that you had Photoshopped that made it look like a group of women were giving you a blow job.

Okay, my bad here guys. There is no literal connection between the (somewhat tongue-in-cheek but clumsily pressed) proposal of a new thread and, uh, well anything really. Didn't mean to hijack this here thread and take it crashing through vaguely misogynistic or masculcentric waters.

Soooo [insert smooth transition here] back to golf. I'm anxiously awaiting the melting of our resident polar icecaps so the courses can re-open. I'm thinking late March will be about right. Time to see how much length I've lost this year...shit, I may have done it again.

Your first insinuation was mildly irritating, however calling me a lair is totally un-Dude like and you should apologize. I am on the path, I never lie.

I did NOT photoshop a picture to make it look like I was getting a BJ, I did not shop it at all. It appears you are not only rude but perhaps blind.
Maybe (unless you delete this) you can let the community decide if this picture is shopped to make it look like I am getting a BJ?
Only addition was I painted shades (on me), they have been removed.

I am at work, with a cup of Joe, the Gals had just come in from a smoke break, note the jackets. They are lined up on the Pool table begging me to make them breakfast, I cook a mean omelet.
Yes, I actually ran a club for a couple of years and still am a "special guest" bartender in the summer or when needed. I have plenty of safe pictures and I would be happy to let you know when I am working, the number, etc. Married 25 years and squarest guy in the club (first one I have even been in) I was hired because I am a Pro and stripper Kryptonite, in other words the opposite of "your term", I am the only adult in the room at work. My job is to oversee not get BJ's (Dying to insert a further comment but know better)

A Dude would never photoshop himself into a picture with women. Much like a Dude would never suggest such a thing of a Dude, he would just say his piece. I have said my piece and await a proper banning but, please don't call me a lair, misogynist or late for supper.

To be clear, I completely agree with your observations that some people are overly sensitive and seem to be constantly searching for any subject to take issue with.  But isn't a part of Dudeism being mindful of the opinions and feelings of others and being considerate to those people regardless of whether we agree or disagree with them?

Also, while this forum is considerably more lenient with regards to language and subject matter than all of the others I regularly frequent, the moderators are here for a reason--this is their beach community, and we're allowed to hang out here only as long as we don't start sucking around bothering the other citizens.  This isn't 'Nam, there are rules.  Now, I didn't see what Meekon5 saw in the photo that Bluedude posted, but that doesn't mean it didn't exist.  He chose to draw a line in the sand, a modest task that was his charge, and you have to admit that rarely happens here.  It wasn't personal, he was just doing what he's supposed to do.  Nothing is fucked here, Dudes, so just take it easy, grab an oat soda, a Caucasian, a J, or what-have-you, and fuck it, let's go bowling.

Mmm, nope.  Fascist aggression will not stand in dudeism...  Like I said, if it does, I want to know.

Al I would agree with you other than two statements.

Now, I didn't see what Meekon5 saw in the photo that Bluedude posted, but that doesn't mean it didn't exist.  He chose to draw a line in the sand, a modest task that was his charge, and you have to admit that rarely happens here.  It wasn't personal, he was just doing what he's supposed to do.

It is the picture I posted, it's not, nor was shopped, plenty saw it before, they see it now. It's not like I have a rep here to protect lol, it's merely the obvious truth.

Oh and finally you put up a picture that you had Photoshopped that made it look like a group of women were giving you a blow job.

I did not, and he is calling me a liar, that's personal. I am only calling him out on his rudeness. If he was rude he should apologize, and if he doesn't like it I suggested he ban me rather than call me a lair. I did clean up my act, as suggested, the fella just didn't like the push back. Or just good old jealousy set in:D

So the dude should apologize (I did), ban me or he can just understand that I'm the bear.

Poor choice of words on my part.  What I meant was simply that Meekon5 interpreted what he saw in the photo differently from the way I interpreted what I saw in the photo.

I don't have a dog in this fight, so I'm hoping my comments here won't be interpreted as taking Meekon5's side in this disagreement; I'm simply expressing my thoughts and opinions based on what I've read and seen in this thread.

Having taken a closer look at the photo you posted, I can see how some people might think it's Photoshopped; the somewhat low visual quality and sharp lines around the womens' hair (in contrast to the darker background) suggest some editing may have been done.  I don't believe it's been altered myself, but I can understand why some people might.  And, if I remember correctly (and I could easily be wrong), in your original post you did mention that a small amount of editing had been done; it was after the fact that you were more specific about what that editing consisted of (i.e. cropping and the addition of "shades").

Also, after re-reading Meekon5's comments, I don't believe he was attempting to be deliberately insulting or rude; he was trying to explain his actions/comments based on his opinion that the photo you posted had been altered to suggest some form of sexual activity, and he never directly called you a liar.

That being said, I am in no way attempting to say either of you were right or wrong, but simply, in my opinion, that the entire matter was nothing more than a misunderstanding that escalated into what it became.  And on a semi-related note, in over a decade of participating on forums such as this I've rarely seen a moderator explain their actions publicly, and I've never seen one publicly apologize for doing what they believed at the time was right.  If that's perceived as fascist aggression, so be it, but I don't think it's anything more than part and parcel of being a moderator.

I think he called me a lair and I think he has a Vagina and he should apologize.
Al read it how you want, he called me a lair and you're carrying his PC water by saying it's part and parcel of the job. (Sorry but your hope was in vain)

Obviously he wont apologize or ban me, he is a typical PC Mod, PC folks rarely commit due to the need to flex to the current PC need. BTW the link you pasted ain't gonna happen, but keep on being "The Man" Dudette and look for more reason to be a wet rag.

Simmer down.
You are being very undude.
This is not about drawing a line in the sand.
You should have let it go long ago.
Fuck it who cares if it's photo shopped or not.

I care, it's not shopped then he changed my name, he is a coward and I am not a liar.
All I asked for was the dudette to apologize, instead he changed my handle, he is a coward not a dude. Simple.

I asked to be banned and he just changed my handle rather than duding up.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I figured I'd join in.

I used to play golf some time ago. I liked hitting the ball, and I liked the walking. The scoring used to get me all riled up though. It was aggression that I could not stand, man. So I moved on from it.

I still like going to a driving range, and I'm happy there smacking a bucket of balls around with little care for whether or not I'm hitting them well. That is an activity that I can dig. Just hitting them, enjoying the swing, watching the balls sail away, and feeling quite calm regardless. A bit of a shame that I don't get to the range much these days.

Regardless I like heading off to a driving extent, and I'm glad there smacking a can of balls around with little tend to regardless of whether I'm hitting them well. That is a movement that I can burrow. Simply hitting them, getting a charge out of the swing, watching the balls cruise away, and feeling very quiet in any case. Somewhat of a disgrace that I don't get to the range much nowadays.Sell a car and Get cash for cars orange county (http://vbuycars.com/).
