Black woman golfer: It was like

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

These everyday occurrences have nothing to do with race. They were playing too slowly and probably creating a logjam on the course. But maybe Starbucks will be sympathetic.

According to the article the women are well known and part of a group of very experienced golfers. Something odd here.

I managed to get my cousin and myself thrown off a golf course once for driving the cart in the wrong place. I suspect there is more to the story. I must admit that I sometimes wonder why golfers who are in a hurry play? :-)

Yet another setup that "just happened" to be videoed----just like the Starbucks problem with the two black men who wouldn´t leave and wouldn´t buy anything.

It´s generally good manners to let faster players play through. There is nothing more frustrating than playing behind a group that are constantly talking, drinking, and spending inordinate amounts of time hunting lost balls.

As #4 posted, if was only an hour and a half then that´s pretty quick playing. Something funny going on here. A lot of clubs will ask you to leave if you hold up play. St. Andrews requires a 16 handicap and will toss you for being too slow.

Too many blacks thinks ordinary everyday happenings are because they are black. No, it is because you are in front of someone. Nothing drives some people madder than having someone in front of them. That is your offense. It happens to all of us. Let them pass you, the purpose being to get rid of them as fast as possible, and to continue to enjoy your day, and be safe.

More likely gender than race. It was a Saturday. Lots of clubs reserve Saturdays for men only. Cause they are more important. And spend more money. And own the club.

I can answer that, #2, #5. They are trying to finish the course before the score catches up with them.

Five women of any color in front of me in any line would drive me mad. No racism there. Sexism, maybe.

I invented a came called "Mortar Ball" in which the players shoot golf balls at each other with air canons. If you miss your opponent, that counts as a ´stroke´. The looser pays for everyone else´s stitches. It´s fun, it has it´s drama and excitement and no one get´s in your way. Any disputes in the game are quickly settled merely by more play. We played it on abandoned U.S. Air Force bases. (Har!) Beats slow paced regular golf by a mile!

I used to golf regularly at Grand Marais in East St. Louis, a public course. The rudeness, hostility and lack of respect for the game exhibited by the regulars was astounding. Astounding. I was nose to nose with some of them a few times, my last time there it was with the course manager. As I told him, there are other places to golf. I miss the fun, old style little track, the folks, no.

A review of the article indicates they were finishing the second hole when they were told they were playing too slowly. An hour and 45 minutes later, they were at the ninth green. That translates to over 2 hours for nine holes.

They should have let the people behind them play through. There´s no way that any group of women is going to finish 18 holes in less than 4 hours.

Some people several shades darker than I am always hold their hands up and sure enough, they´re skin is brown. That´s the problem alright. It never has anything to do with their conduct, disobeying rules, being rude and as in most cases being disrespectful of others.
This attitude our darker citizens have will forever hold them back from the fruits of being a good citizen and realizing equality is a two way street.

Grandview has its 18 hole round time on the back of its scorecard - 4 hours,15 minutes or less. The first hole is a par 5, the second par 4. Most "average" female golfers have a distance deficit that is amplified on longer hole.

If one considers the final seven holes on the front nine reportedly took 90 minutes (an average of 13 minutes per hole, including time to the next tee) after the first two holes drew a rebuke for slow play...and now with a fifth player, the women´s claimed timing becomes dubious.

Did the starter on the first tee record their tee-off time? That´s common on weekends with pace of play enforced by rangers. Eliminates pace of play arguments.

BTW, Grandview´s local rules prohibit "playing through" on weekends. Were those playing behind them asked by the reporter to corroborate their story? Apparently not. And who authorized a fifth player? On a weekend? Added to an already slow foursome?

Allowing a group of 5 on Saturday is asking for trouble. The article says that a group of white men complained of the slow play coming from the group playing in front of them. Perhaps if it were a group of Jewish Japanese Aborigines that complained, it might have been okay. The article does not address the tell tale sign that would prove that the group of 5 black women were indeed playing too slow........where was the unmentioned group located who were playing in front of the five some? If there was a size able gap there, then they were indeed playing too slow. Fore!

Being a white female golfer I can say we have our issues too. Not the least of which is playing behind both slow women golfers as well as men. A friend and I were accused of holding up play by a group of men behind us. We had to wait to tee off many times because of a group of men ahead of us. They must have had a lot of money bet on the game as it took forever for the putts to fall. One time we were going to play at a municipal course and two men had been assigned to play with us. One refused and joined the group ahead of us. We don’t like to play with men like that anyway. And then rhere was the Air Force Base golf course where women weren’t allowed to play before 1 pm on Saturday - until a new base commander was assigned who played golf. Oops. She was a woman. Good golfer too!

To clarify...the article states that they finished the last 7 holes in an hour and 45 minutes. That´s 15 minutes per hole. Given that, the first two holes should have taken a half hour. Total for the front nine would be 2:15-2:30 making it a 4.5 to 5 hour round. Not horrible, but not fast. One could assume they tried to speed up on the last seven but probably didn´t as they seem clueless or even disdainful of golf etiquette. After being spoken to, then they take a break after 9? I´m sorry but that is just downright belligerent given they were told to speed up. And girls, no one is on you because you´re black, it´s because you´re holding up the course.

LOS ANGELES — A small crowd that gathered Thursday outside the Los Angeles office of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters to counter an expected protest by a self-styled militia group burned an American flag taken from the back of a pickup truck. The incident happened after the far-right Oath Keepers group didn´t appear at the office after saying it would rally against the congresswoman. A group of counter-protesters there to support Waters were chanting "black power" and other slogans when the pickup approached.

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants.

In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

The party that has embodied Scandinavian social democracy for decades risks a historic beating. With nine weeks of political campaigning left, latest polls estimate the level of support for Sweden´s Social Democrats at about 25 percent. If confirmed in the Sept. 9 general election, it would be the party´s worst result on record. Like its sister parties across Europe, the group has been wrong-footed by rising opposition to immigration across the continent. Under its leadership, Sweden has seen an influx of about 400,000 immigrants since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015 -- a massive number for a country of 10 million

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning.

In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic. President Trump’s economy is just plain on fire! Barack Obama was the worst economic president since

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles.

Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton´s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets. At one point during Peter Strzok´s congressional testimony last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert made a stunning claim: FBI investigators were told that Clinton´s emails had been surreptitiously forwarded to a "foreign entity."

A video has emerged showing Melania Trump apparently looking horrified after shaking Vladimir Putin´s hand during her husband´s summit with the Russian president. Putin can be seen smiling and nodding in the clip as he is introduced to Melania by President Trump in Helsinki, Finland on Monday. Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way.
