How do you handle it when people are a-holes?

You know the type- don't let you play through, throw on you when you haven't cleared a hole, talk when you throwing, let loose a profanity laced screaming fit when they miss that 40 foot putt, those guys...how do you like to deal with them?

Ran into a group like this today. Personally I played through, then when they threw on me the next hole, I kicked one of their discs under a pile of leaves.

I just ignore them, and focus on what I'm doing. Occasionally if it's really bad I'll gently point out to them what good course etiquette would be in a non-confrontational way.

If I'm already carrying a few beers, I just sit with my group and just chill. Life's too short to get all frustrated.

Or we just skip ahead.

Seconded. I'm not in a hurry, and I'm out to have a good time, not get mad.

I try not to talk when people are throwing but really, when I go and play I also like to socialize and I guess I don't see how talking a bit would throw somebody off so bad. I've never understood it with ball golf either and had no change in concentration if a couple people were chatting. That said, I try to be respectful when other groups are around and can't stand the things you mentioned, but what about the tools that don't "clear"? Having to walk off the tee, up and around a big dogleg just to see if anybody's still putting only to find... NOTHING... is a pain in the ass.

If you're playing in a tourney or league, talking in someones throw is a major faux paux and can lead to penalty strokes and DQ if you're obnoxious about it.

I slip up from time to time, but when I'm playing someone else, I try to show respect.
