Sometimes golf is a very misunderstood sport. Many people view it as a retirement game for people who are stuck in their ways about the strict dress code and old-fashioned traditions.
This opinion is what you would describe as a "red flag," a view that is entirely untrue and should be ignored at all costs.
In the last few days, social media has exploded with a new trend where people have been posting unpopular opinions about the game of golf and including red flags to suggest these views are nonsense.
Various figures from the golf world have got involved and it has made for some great reading on Twitter, Facebook and other platforms.
From saying Tiger Woods is finished to judging golf not to be a true sport, there have been many posts leaping to the defence of our game and its ambassadors.
Take a look below at the 18 red flags that complete our golf course of unpopular opinions.
