Golf is a pretty tough game but it can be made worse when you are playing with someone who is insufferable.
Be it at a pro-am or you and your mate are paired with another two on a busy day summers' day on the course, it can be a bit of a lottery.
The game has a lot of rules, more than we can type out here but there are some unwritten ones that you really must adhere to.
There is no doubt you will have ones that get under your skin more than others, while there may be some you are unaware of.
GolfMagic decided to take at five of the most irritating that you will witness on fairways all around the world.
Saying "get left" to a slicing golf ball
Yeah, I know my club face is open to the path the club is travelling on.
I understand that I may have got a little bit steep on that one and that I threw my shoulders over the top of the ball.
Can it be helped? Sure, I can get some lessons but Rome wasn't built in a day and it's a work in progress.
I slice the golf ball and there ain't nothin' I can do about it when I'm in the middle of the round.
So when I start one out left and it's looping back over to the right side of the fairway please spare me shouts of: "Get left!"
We both know it is not happening, sunshine.
So let's just crack on.
Walking too slowly

Golf is of course a game that rewards patience.
I have no issue if you take your time over the ball.
Being deliberate is no bad thing and if you want to take 45 seconds over your shot then be my guest.
Just don't move at the pace of a sloth in between shots.
Let's keep it moving.
We don't want to see angry golfers out there.
Saying "I think that's OB" or "I think it opens up over there" after a bad tee shot
For some this probably up there with the sound of nails on a chalkboard.
Bad tee shots happen.
They will happen to you. To me. And even to Tiger Woods.
Why not just say nothing or sincerely tell your playing partner if you were able to get a line on it?
Come on, don't be that person.
Taking some time to look for lost golf balls instead of playing
When you try to retrieve a lost golf ball and end up losing the club as well... pic.twitter.com/MxKC6l2y1Z— LADbible (@ladbible) July 21, 2020
Golf is an expensive game and premium golf balls will cost you a large chunk of change.
So it is no surprise that you may be tempted to try and have a little rummage around to try and find some in the thick stuff.
But we're here to play golf, so please climb back over the OB fence, get out of the woods and come and play.
Waiting for the green to clear on a par-4 when you have absolutely no chance of getting on the dancefloor
This a personal favourite of mine.
Standing on the green I take a look back to the fairway to see a grumpy golfer(s) with their hands on their hips.
Apparently, we are too slow.
They've hit their drive 175 yards but somehow think they'll muster one 240 through the air out of some horrendous lie.
Don't be that person, you know your game and how far you hit the ball.
What are some of the things that annoy you on a golf course?
