In both cases Ambassadors told us "absolutely not, I'd get fired for allowing that". On the second such occasion, an Asst. Mgr. rode out to our location on the course to insist no one can play in a group of five in TV. Not even when good judgement and common sense dictates it might be a reasonable option. Given these circumstances, no one, golf pro or not should be able to violate this kind of standing rule. Not even for Lady Pros, Men Pros, College golfers or the Morse family. Wrong is wrong and making excuses is worse.

I read Swooner's post and had exactly the same reaction.
It's a game in a retirement community; don't sweat the small stuff. Life is too short.

It began back in high school where I did proof reading on the newspaper.

Next, I became a fan of the precise language of William F. Buckley on TV.

Finally, I became a writer, and The Elements of Style became my guide.

Yes, I notice errors all the time, but I strive to restrain myself from pointing them out. Sometimes I lose control.

I totally understand. I spent most of my career preparing and reviewing engineering and other technical documents. (Plus, I'm just generally anal-retentive by nature. ) I often suppress urges to join the Grammar Police. And sometimes I don't.

I have the best breech of authority golf story. When Tip O'Neill was Speaker of the House, he and his wife were on a boondoggle to Africa. She fell ill and they airlifted them to Wiesbaden, Germany. Tip decided to play a round of golf at Rheinblick, the military course in town. They threw everyone off the course, cancelled all tee times, and he played eighteen alone...with the exception of a huge cadre of security people. To put a cherry on top, they took a brand new set of Wilson Staffs that a customer had ordered and put them in the rental program for Tip to use.
