I want to believe this guy (and his partners) is/are honest. Seems likely that the foursome in front is having a chuckle, at least on the par 4s, if the greens are just out of sight from the tee.
I'm in the 14 HI range, and distance isn't my problem either. As mentioned in another thread, roughly half of my rounds are "walk-ons". Whether I'm playing with new friends or old golf buddies, I play what they play, usually white but often enough blue. If I kept close track, the blue or black rounds are probably a slightly higher scoring average. My short game is fairly decent and that is the equalizer.

Not advice per se, my irons are the original Hogan Edge. Possibly the first perimeter weighted, cavity back forged irons, circa mid 80s I think. I MAY change them out some day, but maybe not. It isn't clubs that are holding me back. "It's not the arrow", so to speak. I'll second comments on the fitting process though. I have had my clubs re-shafted (to my swing speed) and fitted (twice now) for length loft and lie. That is huge and makes a big difference. I am sure there...
Like most, I play better at a home course. When I belonged to a spendy club, I played there 90+% of the time. It was close to home, no wait for a tee time and hey, no green fees (other than the monthly bleeding). My only thought is that someone in a similar situation, playing at a home club most of the time, will probably not realize a handicap change shooting a higher than normal score at a different course once or twice a month. Since your handicap is calculated on the...
Up until 18 months ago I belonged to a local club, and carried a 13 handicap. So, most rounds varied between low 80s to mid 90s. On occasion I would have a horrible round with maybe a 105. I didn't post these rare high rounds as I felt they didn't represent my ability and would be meaningless since they would never be included in the handicap calculations. Eventually though, the "Handicap Police" (handicap chairman) noticed I didn't post a round (another 100 plus score)...
Ha. I'd expect a retort from the Mary Mex, its in his DNA. But I doubt he'd be offended.
I play maybe half my rounds with strangers, usually at public courses. I'm not really that social but I do enjoy meeting guys over golf. Most guys are pretty fun and have great humor. Still, I don't rub too hard. On a rare occasion, I have played with an a**h***, but likely less than 7 times. One time a young guy joined us on the first tee, and for some reason we started talking about Travino. This guy says "I played with Travino once. He is an a**h***!" Well, about 2...
By virtue of what they are being paid, and all the smoke no doubt being blown up the ass, it isn't too surprising the guys you mention think they are relevant. I like Nance, but he can't NOT give every Green Jacket a BJ. B.Chamblee is a horrid ego. I like Norman but he is no Miller.
It just makes sense to me that we all (typically) do better when we concentrate more. So, I don't think the odds of doing so are astronomical at all, even twice in a row. On any given day I might shoot anywhere from mid 80s to upper 90s, depending on a lot of things (fatigue, hangover, course familiarity, etc.). I have even broken 80 two or three times, thankfully (maybe) not in a tournament. Not recently either. Now, the odds of me (at 14) shooting a near par round are...
