I watch far too much golf, read too much golf, and bet too much on golf inevitably leading to certain things getting right on my nerves.

Here is a list of some of my top 5 current hates , feel free to add your own

1. Ewan Murray - His voice just does my head in.
2. European Tour Scoreboard. Just totally incompetent
3. Too many in golf describing things as awesome. Used to be just the Americans but Poulter and Fisher are now big culprits. Watch for it in interviews or on Twitter.
4. American TV coverage, ruined with all the adverts and talking and now catching on big time with Sky.
5. Betfair not re-organising markets so you get 1000 priced players near the top of the list.

Your initial list is decent

The phrase "That's a great golf shot", although I've been known to use it myself.

1) People who don't take the flag out when putting

2) As already mentioned, people who say 'great golf shot'

3) The horrible background music on the Sky coverage (too American)

4) Over analysis of swings by some expert who talks about where the club is pointing, too many knuckles showing, telling me whatever he likes because he knows I have no idea what he is talking about.

5) Over analysis by Critchley/Murray talking about momentum every 30 seconds, Critchley saying about making opponents win holes with birdies (no sh1t Sherlock), can't keep on holing 4 footers as it's too mentally draining (oh f*ck off Bruce!!)

6) Making out that Pavin/Monty are these great strategists that are playing some huge game of chess with each other. Total rubbish. It's 90% about the players.

By Herbie Peanut on 2 Oct 10 18:35 Gary McCord American commentator is probably the most annoying man in golf come to think of it.

verbotene liebe • June 27, 2010 9:41 PM BST....... Peter Alliss receives consistent across the board criticism but the guy is a legend and I'd have him any day over the trashy Gary McCords of this world.
The Mod father • April 12, 2012 7:41 PM BST....... How did Gary McCord upset the powers that be at Augusta?
xmoneyx • April 13, 2012 2:31 PM BST...... he said "the augusta greens were like a bikini wax"
Mighty Whites 2008 • April 13, 2012 2:45 PM BST...…... He was reported to the committee by non other than Saint Tom Watson. He also referred to the 'patrons' standing behind 14 green as being in the cheap seats. Needless to say, he was told he wouldn't be welcome back and hasn't been since.
By Dan Chipowski on 2 May 13 22:04...….. Is that Gary McCord fella the d!ckhead who constantly tries to be funny on the Yank golf comms? Does my fkin head in.

Well Dan,
Gary McCord & Peter Kostis are no long part of CBS' golf team....
Golf broadcasting iconoclast Gary McCord signed his last contract with CBS Sports two years ago, but news broke last week that his two-year option with the network was not picked up, ending his career of 30-plus years at CBS.
McCord, who began his CBS career at the 1986 Memorial Tournament, had an inkling what was coming after learning close friend and colleague Peter Kostis, who has been with CBS since 1992, was informed last Wednesday that his option was not being picked up, either.

yes, I know it's irrational but this habit I first noticed with Rickie Fowler of a quarter swing takeaway to knee level before driving grates the hell out of me.
