Golf craze you just don’t understand

The booth was awesome. The product had some merit too, but I don't think they ever got off the ground.


We could have saved it
 
What is something in the golf world that everyone seems to be crazy about that you just don’t completely get?

For me. It’s putters. Collecting, buying super high end, customizing, etc. it baffles me that many are willing to collect so many of them.

I am all for people choosing their method of fun. So I am fine with it. But I simply just don’t understand it..

I have only own like 6 putters my whole life.

This is also not a shot at @xThor or @Jman lol.. I have thought this a long time.
So many other great ideas from everyone but I am totally with you on the putter thing. I just don't get it. I will never be one to collect putters.
 
Oooh there with ya man on the raw club finishes. No thank you.
Out of curiosity, on what other things is the rust look desirable?
@MWard and @Templet0n might think it looks good on cars and old patio furniture too😂
 
Expensive tee times

It's something that has baffled me as well. How do you get used to a putter if you are rotating so much? I currently have 3 now, but 1 is from a special event and the other just got replaced and haven't moved it or decided if I'm moving it yet, lol.

Distressed wrought iron with small bits of rust? Yeah that doesn’t look terrible depending on the amount. There are limits to it all. But the wedge I just bought for when my current one becomes too old? Raw finish, designed to rust.

SWAG. I just don't get the attraction of skulls and sunglasses on head covers, putters, golf bags, etc.
 
I will smack you in the face. That was not me
I definitely started searching the webs at 1 am looking to see if there was one anywhere to be acquired.

I did the same last night LOL.

Nowhere. Finding one in the wild is gonna be like finding Bigfoot
 
Joggers. Great around the house, weird on the golf course
Hahahaha I’m ok with it, although as the temperatures creeped up in our round on Saturday I thought the guy I was playing with pants were shrinking as more ankle started to show throughout the round then it was a calf the next hole. 😂
 
In the spirit that @Templet0n intended, I have no hate but don't understand Swag gear, headcover and putter collecting in general. If you like it, great, just not my scene.

Loudmouth, which may sound weird coming from me, but I just don't get their stuff.
 
Golf Hoodies - do not understand

With you here. Not so much putters as a whole but fawning over the latest iteration of the Ping Anser from the next Scotty Cameron in waiting is what baffles me. Yes, the finish is flawless and the machining is impeccable - but…

But the great thing is I can just shrug and move on to something more interesting to me. Golf is great because it has something for everybody.
 
The cost of golf in general.This is such an expensive game.I have no idea how people can afford playing more than a few rounds a week.Heck, I make 6 figures and so does my wife and we can’t afford it
My neighbor invites me all the time to play the course in our subdivision, it’s $108 for the round. My course is $119 a month for unlimited walking rounds, $19 for a cart.
 
Transfusions are like that local massive college fanbase.

It's not the drink that sucks, it's the (majority of the) fans that make it suck hahaha
 
My mantra of you do you applies here- What anyone else chooses to spend their money on is of no significance to me! Enjoy!
 
every year. He had tiny legs and lives in the Tampa area.
To be fair, he has to take triple the steps as everyone else.

For good golf or for any golf? Cause that is brutal for the cost of some of the green fees you pay based on previous posts.
 
People can do whatever they want - I've read a few "you do you posts".

I don't get:

Joggers
Flat billed caps
Rope hats
overpriced niche brands (swag was mentioned a few times)
