As it is obviously a fragment I cannot see why you took the trouble to point it out unless you meant something else. It is the something else I don't understand.
I think this feat on the golf course has caused a certain lightness in your noggin.
Why don't you have a problem with singular 'you' using a plural verb?
Prove that it is a fragment, Frank.
For whatever it may be worth:
I gave up on him; too much of a strain on the brain
to bother decoding & disentangling that stuff (that and his obscenity).
In my opinion, from years of tedious observation, its just not worth it.
Attacking the side I see something worthwhile in as a snowstorm to disguise not offering an alternative is never going to persuade me.
Comparing scores on such courses to the scores the professionals return is as daft as comparing galaxies to superstitions.
You are correct...and I was wondering why you did it.
Sorry. I'll get serious again.
The game is a bit of exercise...and a challenge to concentration. I need both!

It's amazing how many Americans use words as badges of honour. Hearing that at a pub bar one might get the impression that Frank is improving his fitness and concentration and is thus someone to admire. In fact it means nothing significant.
It's amazing how many Brits go to pubs.
Shot my best round of the year this morning, Spendius. A 78...and a very nice 78.
Hope you are happy for me.
You think that's good. On Sunday I had a round of golf at the Hat Fair.
I hit the ball into something that looked like a pinball machine
and got a hole in one! Now to put that into context, the seven-year old boy
in front of us took about twenty shots then gave up.
Although his nine year old brother did do a lot better,
I don't know exactly, he'd already finished his go by the time we got there.
Of course you would say 'no', Frank, because you don't know your ass from a bomb crater when it comes to language. You just memorize silly little rules and even those you can't keep straight.
Interesting stuff, David.
As I've mentioned to you in the past, I had to qualify with many different weapons during my service days...but I am not a gun enthusiast. I have a friend from Pennsylvania (who has a survivalist television program) who gets me to do some shooting from time to time--and I enjoy it.
But I am a major-league clod, and if I owned a gun, I am sure I would use it to shoot myself in the foot at some point,
so I stay away from them.
Good to see young people able to handle weapons as handily as these kids.
