OK, I know this has been covered before but I couldn't find the post to revive it.
I played yesterday at a semi-public course with my dad (he drove the cart and hung out with me while I golfer). Anyway, we got tossed in the mix behind a two some that was terrible but I didn't really care since it was just nice to be out. Well we get through 9 holes and on the 10th we got the course to ourselves, the guys in front must of only played 9. I was pretty happy. Low and behold, they must have stopped at the club house to restock the cooler. I got through the first 3 holes until I ran into a 3-some of hacks but again, I figured this would happen so it didn't bother me.
To get to the part that really makes me angry... so the guys that stopped to stock up on beers caught up a little and were on the green as I was teeing off, etc. Not a bad pace. Well, somehow they sped up and so as I was teeing off on the next hole they come riding up in the cart. I am not a rocket scientist, but if you saw someone on a tee box ready to go, you stop the cart and wait, right? WRONG! These individuals decide to continue their conversations at a normal level and drive their cart right up behind mine, IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BACK SWING! They continued to do that for the rest of the holes! It was like clockwork, each time I started to take the club back, they decided to drive their cart to the tee box I was on. Absolutely ridiculous.
I am not used to this type of stuff where I usually play so maybe it makes me a lot more upset than it should, but doesn't anyone understand the gentleman's game anymore?! Common sense is no where to be found anymore.
