    If spitting is getting you all riled up then you are focusing on the wrong things. Unless itís directed at you who cares? As long as they arenít spitting on the green, I donít give a ****. If they do spit on the greens just politely ask no to do that and move on.

    What about smoking or swearing? Is that indication of society also?
    Hope no one here ever notices Brooks dipping during his rounds or that could open a whole new discussion in his thread. [emoji23]

      I never said its a regular occurrence with all people. I only said I happen to catch 3 rounds in a row with one who does this. The only thing regular is the person who constantly regularly does this all day long.

        Same for me...allergies/congestion. I try to spit away from tee boxes and greens and away from people in general. Hopefully Iím not horribly annoying to people I play with.

          but you have an issue going on and your making it your business in respecting those around you and the greens, tees etc. .See now that what im looking for. You are trying to maintain good etiquette even though you have an issue. I can respect that a lot. Now how about the people with no issue and pretty much just do their bad habit at will anywhere and anyhow they desire and even right smack in the midst of talking to you at close range. Why? because they lack etiquette. Im not even talking about one who can hack it up occasionally but the constant little spits just nonstop like every minute or even few secs or so. Every so often you come across that person and unfortunately imo only its poor social etiquette.

            Problem is youíre taking it personal as if the person is going out of their way to make your round a disaster. You have a certain way or seeing things that most younger people donít see or care to be told about. Thatís where you decision lies: find a place that views the same values you hold as important and to be continued or accept that youíre going to be offended by at least one thing during your round because everyone is different.

              Firstly this doesnt make my a round a disaster. And i dont think those doing this are trying to make my round one. But you see...thats just it though. Thats exactly the problem you hit it on the head and dont even know it. The fact that they dont even for a single second consider what they are doing is anything at all lacking in social behavior etiquette. There in itself lies the very issue (imo). Id almost rather one did it just to piss me off and make my round miserable. Crazy as that sounds and off course Im being sarcastic but at least they have a reason to do it where as they wouldn't otherwise normally do it. In other words even that person would know its not proper etiquette and would only be doing it to bother me. But doing it without even the slightest thought of poor ettiquette is the very issue in itself. It simply not even considered as anything of improper at all. Not even the slightest bit. And that ...with a sarcastic lol...is imo a problem as for which direction society has and continues to head.

                So, spitting on the course is a sign that society is doomed?

                  Spitting on the course is pretty rank. Spitting in general is pretty rank. Comparing it to smoking is a little bit different, someone accidentally releasing a cloud in your face is nowhere near as bad as someone accidentally spitting on your shoe.

                  That's my take, I hate it

                      How many times has that happened? I really don’t think it has happened to me and I used to roll with many cavemen types. Now getting smoke blown in my face by accident has happened numerous times and I find that to be messed up.

                        I'm not going to demonize people who do it, but I agree that it's gross and inconsiderate to other players.

                            I guess you're right. One causes lung cancer and the other can be remedied with a paper towel, but you're right.

                              I don't agree with either but spitting just isn't common over here, why was it so bad when Sergio spat in the cup a few years ago? Spitting for the sake of spitting I just don't understand, if you're doing an intense sport I get it. But we are playing golf, not running a marathon

                                I'v only played with a smoker a few times and it was irritating, spitting I find simply rude. There is no real need for it, you don't see people walking down the street and spitting so why is it ok to do on a golf course
