Watching some tour golf and reading about @Canadan having a day on the greens yesterday.

How do you celebrate sinking a clutch putt, long par save, making a birdie or an eagle?

Is it a boisterous celebration? Loud shot and cheer, fist pumping arms flailing kind of celebration.

Or subdued, understated, cap tip nod to the playing partners and move on?

For me it's a fist pump, not a TW uppercut, but more of a Rors punch.

What's your clutch putt celebration?

Early in the round lately? Relief.

Late when it matters, subtle fist pumps.


When I'm having fun with the boys in a scramble?

I tend to favor a confused look with a shoulder shrug if a long putt falls.

Game with the guys, subtle fist pump. A 4 some scramble with a title on the line. Its chest bumps.

It's just a little fist pump usually. With my buddies I'll just say "I'm amazing" as I'm going to get the ball.

Nothing too loud or demonstrative. I don't make anywhere close to my fair share so it's usually a surprise. But when the rare one is sure to fall I tend to subconsciously point at it the last couple feet and then the pointer finger goes 'over the edge and down' simultaneous with the ball.

Small fist pump, if it's a really long one and I think it's going in a few feet before it drops I'm slowly raising my club head.

I think for the 10-15 footers next time I might try a bit of Kevin Na!

I always want to do this, but I'm worried it a) won't go in, or b) I'll tear up the green

Big smile, maybe a yes and a subtle fist pump.

More often than not, it's something like this... only standing up:

I can only remember one instance where I let out an audible cheer and I probably did a mini-Payne Stewart and that was when I hole out from the fringe for par on a par 3 to keep my string of par or better alive at 10 holes enroute to my first sub-80 round since 2010.

It's sort of a grunt and a fist pump. Years of frustration as a poor clutch putter has me celebrating a bit much at times. I seem to be a much better putter these days which is a reversal for most who age with golf.

I'd probably do the slow walk version towards the hole. It won't mess the green up, and if it misses I can use the excuse I was already expecting to miss it, and if it goes in I look like a baller! :geek:

Inwardly I appreciate the positive feeling of the play. Outwardly I pick up my ball and tend the flag or whatever is needed. I'm a relatively level tempered guy.

If it's a fun round or scramble I feel free to act like a moron!

Self deprecation is the only celebration that makes sense until I make more of them
