And again, in bold red text, because some of you keep getting the concept wrong....



In short, the term chucker is a pejorative one. Bringing two high speed drivers to the course that one bought at Walgreens does not make one a chucker. Playing in an eightsome because one doesn't know any better does not make one a chucker. Being able to throw only 150' nose up does not make one a chucker.

But that trail of beer cans strewn about your course? That graffiti on the tee signs, that drunken imbicile using the polehole as a urinal? Your favorite driver disappearing from the middle of the fairway? Those drives raining down on your group from a bunch of locals who should know better because they've gotten cussed out for it before and simply don't care? You can thank chuckers for all of those.

So those of you still getting the term chucker mixed up with your run of the mill casual player, get the distinction down before further posting please.

Well said. I was a newbie at one time as were all of you guys. I have all the time in the world for newbies or people trying to learn the game. Usually I'll end up giving them some help and/or discs. However, those who litter, don't have any respect for anyone else, and vandalize and/or steal property, don't deserve to have any respect. They should not be allowed to use the course, Public or Private.
