6 Common Golfing Gripes and How to Get Around Them!

We all get pretty passionate about our favourite sports, and for us golf fans, there are more than a few common annoyances that can really drive us mad!

We spoke to our golfing community to see what really grinds their gears about televised golf, and decided to put together some creative ways of resolving a few of their pet hates.

If you find yourself getting angry with any of the following golfing crimes, we're here for you!

1.    Tired of spectators crowding around the golf ball?

Try proximity exploding paint golf balls.

When the crowd gets within a certain distance of the ball, they'll have more than just mud on their face.

2.    If crowding is still an issue...

Try electric fences instead.

If the paint doesn't do the trick, then this will quite literally shock pesky onlookers into keeping their distance.

3.    Too many animals getting in the way of the game?

Animal guards can see to that.

Never let a wandering duck interrupt your play again.

4.    If there are too many stupid outfits distracting you from the game...

Call in the fashion police.

Because some golfing attire is truly a crime.

5.    Tired of tech? You're not the only one.

Send out electromagnetic disturbances with an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) generator.

Any irritating gadget-users will be gone in a flash.

6.    Shouty spectators: the biggest annoyance of all.

See if guard towers will silence them.
