Golf - classic or dud

Dud, obviously. I mean, there's no player interaction for a start.

Sorry I'm going to stick up for golf. Golf is CLASSIC! Golf on TV is soothing and pleasant to watch, reminds me of Sunday afternoons as a child watching it with my parents, loads of days at the Irish Open drinking beer and lying around in the sun.

Playing golf is something I won't do till I'm a good bit older but it is the best activity for people as they get older. Very social, not too strenuous, lots of dinners/drinking sessions. I love golf on BBC, Alex Hay is such a polite and good humoured man. There's no sport left on TV with as little glitz as Golf right down to the commentators.

Ah golf.....I even love the rippling applause and the noise when they hit the ball

The stupidest "sport" ever created, and that's saying a lot. It was probably one of Momus's ancestors that created as a grand art prank on the upper classes.

davel, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

classic!!!

its just great, can't explain why exactly, its perfectly sedate to watch, but things do sort of coalesce into being. as for playing, i have to make do with the occasional round of pitch and putt

It's not the golf so much as the sodding golf courses that I mind. Firstly they encourage murder as bodies are always being found on golf courses (well not always but sometimes. Occasionally). Secondly they take up land that could be used for better things. Where I grew up in leafy Bucks it was golf courses a-go-go for all the middle aged commuter men and they put one on top of the pick your own strawberries farm where I used to stuff my face and get sunburnt as a child. Then when I was living in Spain at the povvy end of the Costa del Sol there were severe water shortages so we had no water from 8pm onwards and if you forgot to fill a bath / bucket before you went out you were stuffed but OH LOOK just outside town is the swanky golf course they had some big competition on a few years back and they are sprinklering that all hours of the day grrr. OK so they need them for the tourist euro but still it's irritating.

Rant over.

''Peter Allis = satan.''

am sad i am missing the open (already missed wimbledon and the eng sri lanka test series) but the good thing abt missing the open is not hearing Peter allis' 'commentary'. It's just torture really.

Grew up a bit of a golf nut in the very early eighties -- still think Tom Watson's amazing chip shot in the US Open on the seventeenth hole ranks up there as a Great Moment. But this fascination could well be due to location -- my grandparents lived in Pebble Beach, home of some of the best courses in the States or anywhere, and where that particular Open was held that year. My parents live in Carmel now literally within walking distance from the beach where you can see some of the courses, and seeing the courses and the whole setting is for me just part of home, a nostalgia-of-the-present I can't and won't deny. Don't follow it now beyond knowing Woods is predominant and Els his closest rival (I gather), and I think the urge to create courses in absurdly impractical locations is sad on any number of levels. But visiting Scotland made me appreciate why it was created there and so popular -- plenty of lush greenery, plenty of good space for courses. So why not?

Ned Raggett, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'll tell you why not! Cos golf courses ruin the natural lush greenery with their horrible landscaping and prevent people who aren't stomping around in silly jumpers from enjoying the countryside!

Emma, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Emma is OTM here. Silly jumpers + vast amounts of environmental degradation = double dud.

RickyT, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Are you referring to Scotland or England here? (I'm not being snarky, I'm honestly curious -- I was under the impression that most of the Scottish courses have been around for many a moon anyway, so they're the landscape by default now.)

Ned Raggett, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm not sure that most of the courses in Scotland *are* that old, and there's been a big explosion in golf course construction in England over the last twenty years or so. The area round my parents house in Yorkshire is covered with the damn things, many of them having replaced the few bits of uncultivated land that remained in the area.

Golf = men in pastel diamond knit tank tops = Classic

davel, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I think golf evolved in scotland as a way of using naturally occuring coastal scrub land.

They then started creating artificial coastal scrubland all over the world.

apparently American golf courses are more "artificial" than Irish & Scottish ones, and there is some pressure on courses over here to become less natural so as to appeal to yankee dollar.

but whatever, it's all golf = all boring middle class men off playing their boring game and cosying up to the boss over a few gin and tonics and then drink driving home.

DV, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Ronans answer is my answer as well. Classic. Having a golf course around sure beats having a soccer pitch, baseball diamond, basketball court etc etc around.

The fact that there is no player interaction only increases the enjoyment of the game for me. Sublime and no jock0's around to spoil your day.

lawrence kansas, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

As a matter of fact I shall be hitting the links (as we say) Saturday afternoon.

lawrence kansas, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I hate golf. Last Sunday whilst walking in the park talking to my mother and aunt whilst taking our dogs round a park that boarders on a golf course, a very rude old man starting telling us to be quiet as he wanted to tee off. Git. So, we just talked more loudly (we weren't shouting in the first place). So, anyway golf courses are evil. It is all fun shouting "skin" is you hear a golfer shout "fore".

Tiger's petulant bitching at the photographers is by itself sufficient proof of ultimate dud-ness. Two words for all golfers, squatting to line up their putts as a reverential hush falls over the gallery: SWING BATTER!!

'Peter Allis = Satan' = the strangest and silliest statement I've ever seen; I can hardly think of anyone harder to despise. The man is a god.

Classic Allis - Hay exchange from yesterday;

Allis (lamenting Seve's withdrawal due to being rubbish now): 'I'm afraid there aren't too many things you get better at as you get older'.

Hay: 'Sweeping?'.

Ally C, Friday, 19 July 2002 00:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I don't know their names but.

today they showed a bunch of CLIPS together [highlights, perhaps] with some krazy 'dance' music over the top.

one commentator: is that the sort of music you like to dance to?

another commentator: no, actually. I'm more of a gavotte-merchant.

I have an inkling that the another one was allis. if so: AllyC is OTM.

Bah Peter Allis is a 19th hole saloon bar reactionary sexist BORE who thinks that the 'little woman' shld never be allowed near a golf course and who in interviews makes dull and predictable comments abt the 'menace' of political correctness (which just means he can't tell his racist jokes anymore...)

Commentary during a lull in yesterday's final round (which, contrary to most, I found infinitely less entertainng than when the leaders were shedding shots like confetti in Saturday's gale in front of no spectators whatsoever):

Allis: A mention to Mrs [x] who's just about recovered now from the shock of the burglary. I hope they catch the culprits soon.
Hay: Terrible. [Proceeds to say something about appropriate capital punishment to apply when they are caught]
Allis: Ooh no, surely a bit of flogging first. So the punishment lasts longer.
Hay: Oh yes, of course.

i hit golf balls this week. i have more natural ability at it than most other things that involve hitting balls. fun. and v. satisfying when you actually get it up in the air and far away. though i usually don't get quite as much distance as others. dunno if that's a strength thing or a technique thing (or the stella i had?). not too much exercise if you're just driving, though.

I've started playing again recently too and my handicaps gone down from a 14 to about an 11/10 - played ardeer and carded an 84 (an unecessary 7 [!!!], and three unecessary 6s) but shoulda been a 79. that is playing to handicap I guess (it was 14) but I reckon markers would have given me the 7 and 6s as 5s (taking into account the rest of my card.)

I love golf.

I honestly felt a bit emotional watching him win. So he isn't a good person or a role model. Are we all really so perfect or charismatic or well-rounded?

He has had a strange life and the pressure cooker of celebrity in America doesn't exactly treat people so well, not least after a public meltdown like Tiger's.

This piece is very long but really gives context to today - his dad died, he lost his shit badly, he was injured and his body was in ruins, he fucked up his own life and made lots of stupid decisions. Somehow, and I'd say even just the physical side of it alone is remarkable, he has managed to claw his way back.

The ambiguity of his character makes it all the more interesting.

Tiger just felt longer and he was on his own it seemed. Genius but what's in it for me man?!

i've definitely enjoyed the post-Tiger gold world in the same way that i enjoyed the post-Hendry snooker world (and Ronnie, who is above and beyond either, has his own story exactly because he's better than machine precision) but given all the weirdness of race/class/cheering for alt option/you know what i mean, fairy stories

all that, anyway, the Tiger resurrection is a great story also all things considered i think he's the best player of his game of all time and this is a welcome next chapter

So much else to talk about today, I don't think I heard what used to be an ongoing story mentioned even once (maybe I missed it): this was the first time Tiger came from behind to win a major. Three times he was tied going into Sunday, every other time he teed off with the lead (anywhere from 1 to 10 strokes).

Catching up with the first round of the US Women's Open. Course seems p quirky especially the Greens, some ridiculously severe false fronts.

Also completely mind blown by the fact that the player in 2nd place after round one Esther Henseleit last official handicap before she turned pro was +7.1 !!!!! Imagine having to add 7 shots to your score after every round as an amateur!

Also lol at the rumoured USGAing of pebble Beach for the upcoming mens US Open. Apparently they have narrowed the fairways so much that on one of the holes a fairway bunker is now located 35 yards into the rough!

US Open at Pebble Beach is underway. Should be some good scoring in this one.

course is playing p soft today, greens holding, think it'll dry out by the weekend and be really tough.
mcginley with the great stat that rory has never won a tournament with a winning score of worse than -12. which suggests he can't win on really tough tracks. rahm and rickie going well greens look v smooth for pebble

Rickie leading. I wouldn't begrudge either he or tangent if he got a major but his hair really bothers me. I know it some charity mullet thing to do with his foundation but yeesh.
