    Could someone please explain to the announcer that the term "Never up, Never in" means that you didn't hit the ball hard enough.....it makes me crazy that when the announcer says it, the put missed long!

    To me it means :

    unless a putt is struck hard enough to reach the hole it has no chance of falling into the cup.

     

    So the announcer is just saying you gave it a good try, you just didn't sink it.

    But the OP is saying the ball was hit hard enough. The missed putt was long and not short. That means the saying doesn't fit the situation. The putt was "up" just not in. 

    The OP has a valid point.

    Continental wisdom is, U.S. (or Austrian(?)) scientists concluded that 96.3 % of short putts won't get into the hole!

    Words of Eternal Wisdom!!

    I never said anything about the validity of the OP's  point, I was only saying what it meant "to me"

    The announcer could simply be saying that never up ( to the task ) never in ?

    Well, actually, you also stated what the announcer was saying to the op. 

    Regardless, I was simply noting the op's point was valid. I didn't say you did say anything about the validity of the op's statement. 😀

    And the announcer could simply be using the statement incorrectly. 😀

    Ok guys sorry for putting in my opinion, so let me do exactly what the OP asked for us to do.

     

    Dear Mr. Announcer the OP would like for me to explain to you that term "Never up, Never in" means that you didn't hit the ball hard enough.....So it makes him  crazy  when you say it, when his  putt missed long! Thanks.
