    Rory’s clinic on how not to putt!

    4 putt pro! They don’t really think it’s owed to them, you expect me to believe that?

    They work harder on their game in one week than most do in their entire lives. How do you consider that they feel it's owed to them?

    You come across as someone who's eaten up with jealousy. Is it their money? Their talent and skill? Their youth?

    What has you oozing so much hate and vitriol? To be honest, it's becoming a bit tiring. I'd advise finding something in your own life that can give you joy. It'll help you see that there's enough good in life to go around. Maybe you can see your way to congratulate someone else on the good in their own life--maybe even be happy for them!

    Now, with that out of the way, you're just dodging the point with a bad attitude and sour grapes.

    They work on their game more than 99% of golfers on the planet. What about that fact tells you that they think it's owed them? If they thought it was owed them, they'd be posting anonymously online, complaining about all the good that happens to other people.

    Stop judging me, I never said anything about hate!

    and yes I would love to have a rich daddy or grand daddy so I can go to the country club and play golf 3 or 4 times a week with nice buffet between nines, but I actually have to work to pay the bills, and am lucky to hit some balls no and then! They almost all come from wealthy families that’s why there so good, every day at daddy country club!

    That's pretty funny that you don't want anyone judging your vitriol while you judge the pros for their supposed "the world owes me because I'm a rich snowflake" attitude.

    You're free to post whatever you want. Just know that others will make judgments about you based on what you post.

    So, give it a try. Try appreciating the accomplishments of others, even if they're not accomplishments you're likely to achieve. Try seeing the world as full enough of blessing and benefit that you don't have to resent the blessings and benefits others have received.

    The world becomes a wondrous place when you can do that.

    Why are you defending the snowflakes? There the ones that make golf so expensive, follow the money, who do you think pays for all their million dollar contracts, us the working man, that check mark on their shirt ain’t free ya know! Same in bass fishing and golf the manufacturers are the pimps, the pro’s their whores, and your buying!

    do you think game shows are on tv for your entertainment, hell no, they’re there to sell products, the almighty dollar rules!

    wake up!

    And if Rory ever heard the 3rd oldest adage in golf, die at the hole, could tap in for par, and you know I’m right! But won’t admit it!

    By pointing out that they work hard on their game, which is an indication that they don't think they're owed results? You still haven't gotten around to dealing with that point.

    I'm a libertarian and a capitalist, so I personally think a product is worth what you can get someone to pay for it. If you don't like market-based economics, that's your business. But it has little do with whether the guys working hard every day feel like results on the course are owed them.
