Default Weekend experience & DG Image

Wanted to share an experience from this weekend.

Went to NC this weekend to a soccer tournament with my wife and daughter (Junior in HS). After the games were done, I convinced them to stop by a course and throw a quick round. My wife came with me and my daughter stayed in the car reading and doing homework.

When we got back to the car, my daughter was somewhat shaken about being left alone and asked why I liked DG since I'm not like most of the people she saw coming to the course. She told us about players coming in drinking, doing other illegal activity, and using inappropriate language. I will say that I also saw a couple folks running around with no shirt on, their pants falling off, and yelling obsenities about bad throws or missed putts.

I don't want to sound like a Puritan and I'm not trying to condemn people for what they do, they just need to be aware of those around them and the image they protray of the sport. DG isn't going to get any respect if the DG community doesn't put forth a better image.
