Do you do it ?

Why do you do it ? It's not like it does any good.

I am probably the worlds worst, I tell my ball to do everything.......sometimes it listens, sometimes it doesn't :D

Get up
Get down
Hit a brick
Grow teeth
Spin
Travel
Sit down
Kick left / right

etc etc

I don't actually yell at the ball per say, I usually just nervously mumble those things quietly to myself after a shot.

I will direct the ball, but they are notoriously poor listeners. I have been known to give them a big kiss after a birdie or a satisfying par.

After I managed to 3 nab the 17th in a Medal round last week I directed my ball straight into the river next to the 17th green :bye:

I name my golf balls, but only male names. I don't feel comfortable talking to balls named after women. It's probably because I am shy

Just remember that you can talk to a fade, but a hook won't listen.



(according to Trevino, anyway...)

After watching this last season of Big Break I think I'll start yelling: PARA, PARA!!!

Before I tee up for my first swing, I talk to it. That then can follow by a berating of a variety of words...from there though, it just turns into talking and insulting myself. Yea me...:banghead:

I talk to my ball, my clubs, my swing, my decisions made on the course, you name it and I'm belly aching all the way around. I always be sure not to be too over the top though, last thing I'd want to do is ruin my playing partners round because of it.

When I talk I say things like get up/down, ect. But when I want my ball to shape I will add like this weird thing where I go c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-cut or d-d-d-d-d-d-draw. Its really weird haha

"Sit!" and "Release!" are perhaps my two favorites although I've never known it to do any good whatsoever. As many have said, most of the time I'm yelling at myself, but I have been known to call the ball a "filthy _______ (s word for promiscuous girl)" :embarrassed: when it's being particularly bratty! This comes out most often when I've hit a nice little flop in a delicate spot and then the damn thing just keeps rolling and rolling and rolling :angry::angry::angry:
