Pretty great form.

Swing needs some work.

Baby at a driving range.  That sounds like a somewhat bad idea.

If she loses her grip on the follow through then that baby gets a club to the head.

Which is fine I guess if its her baby.

Yeah, chick ain't even wearing correct shoes, cleats 'n all to keep the swing correct, let alone killing her kid with a loose club.
Funny kid, hope they're at the next Fark party!

Golf is neither a skill nor a sport.  It is an addiction.

Baby got what was coming to him later for that public chuckle.

I like the thought process of the assumed father: "I now have an excuse to let everybody see what I get to go home to." The plausible deniability of showing off without the arrogance of openly bragging, dude is smooth.

I haven't actually played golf since high school but I love going to driving ranges. I doubt I could hit it straight now since I haven't even done that in quite a while come to think of it. My buddy was paying for golf lessons and it farked him up in the head so much that he'd get mad at my ability to hit it straight at the driving range while he no longer could because he was still overthinking it at that point.

"How am I the one who sucks now?" Heard that one often, very often. I just LOLLED, as the kids still say I'm sure.

You've got to be the first one to do it to someone, but if you're ever out on the course, ask your group on about the third teebox "so, do y'all inhale, exhale, or hold your breath during your backswing?"

"Where do you hold your tongue while you putt? Roof of your mouth, behind the teeth, or just floating?" is also a good one.

I had a friend who took a hundred lessons and incorporated something from each one into his pre shot ritual. It was exhausting watching him. Meanwhile I typically stop taking practice swings by the third hole

Closest I come to golfing is to use a grass whip when the dandelions get too tall.

When you speak of me, speak well. The best I ever heard I can't take credit for. Dude would analyze every part of his swing and try to adjust it between shots, rather than just playing how he was playing that day.

Guy in our foursome looked at him on about the 3rd, and just said "y'know, he exaggerates it, but a little bit of Jim Furyk's move could really smooth you out." It was amazing.

The last time I went to a driving range JFK was still president. Somewhat ominously, now that I've drawn the specious connection, the most hellacious thunderstorm I've ever seen whipped during the drive home. I was young enough to fear that I would immediately be struck my lightning heading from the car to the house with all my irons.

I wasn't.

Tiger should take lessons from him.

I became a fan of his because someone on Fark said that I kind of looked like him when I posted a pic of myself sans beard.  Partying with him would be something else.

Speaking of partiers and golf......

Golf is not a sport, it's a contest.

The activity is a contest if there is no defense involved.  Without defense, you don't have a sport.

It's hard to call something a sport if your opponent doesn't even need to participate against you.

I think the criterion is if fat guys and skinny guys can compete with fit guys on an even footing, it's not a sport. Chess. Bowling. Darts. Golf. Poker. Crossword puzzles. Sudoku. Anagrams.

Contests.

Now... I'm not saying these aren't athletic activities.  I'm just saying it's not a sport.

Defense must be involved for it to be a sport.

I'm a Farkette.
My Grandpa was an avid golfer, so I know you're supposed to wear the right shoes. Flip flops? Proves she's not serious about the game, which will continue to ruin her swing. No wonder the kid was laughing!

I'm an avid golfer. Like, trips to Scotland and such.

Ya ever play a evening nine barefoot? It's a lot of fun.

Grab a cart, a 6 pack of beer, play some tunes, hang out with your wife/husband/fwb, whatever,  just enjoy it.

Correct.

As I already stated, I didn't say downhill mountain biking isn't athletic.  I didn't say it doesn't require skill or to be highly in shape to be at a competitive level.

I'm saying, if you can't provide defense or change the outcome vs. your opponent, it's a contest, and not a sport.

There is a significant difference between: "I bet I can do this thing faster than you," or "I can complete this course with less tries than you". ......   Vs.  "I'm going to try to do this thing, and you try and stop me, then it's your turn and I will try to stop you"

One is a sport where you not only have to play offense but also have skills to defend.
The other doesn't even make a difference if your opponent is at the event and competes on a totally different day.

I carry a 4 iron that I only hit when I'm feeling brave, but I am a god damn master at bump and runs with that thing.

I end up in jail a lot.  That shot is like a file in my birthday cake.
