King of Golf Cartoons: ‘Puke’

When you play with people who have a bad golf swing, do you watch them or do you look away?

It's similar to a car accident. You try to look away, but find it's impossible.

Sometimes I marvel at the results that some people can achieve hitting the ball with unbelievably bad swings. I've played with some whose results were much better than their swings. There's nothing logical about golf.

That's a hilarious cartoon !

I have less problem watching a bad swing than I do with people who take forever to play a shot. I have to turn away and look at something else rather than watch them stare at the ball waiting for the proper inspiration before they draw the club back.

As for me, I tend not to watch swings that I think might be a distraction, whether bad moves or good ones. The good swings I don't care to watch are those with a quick tempo.

For me, it's not a matter of being able to watch the bad swing or not. It's a matter of how jealous it makes me when that puker-shot makes a birdie while my progressively-fine-tuned swing keeps landing 'em into the water hazards.
