My home course has on course OB, and it drives me nuts. The first hole is an uphill par 3 with the 9th green to the right, about even with the 1st green. To the right of the 1st hole is a house owned by the course, and it's property is correctly marked OB. However, the last 50-60 yards is well beyond the house and it's property, and is an area that can come into play on the 9th if you miss your approach way to the right. There are white OB stakes along the 1st hole,...
I play the whites. Has more to do with my driver (lack of) carry than my handicap, though. On my home course there are a couple of holes that are almost unplayable for me from the back tees.
I think if you have a driver in your bag that you hit 315 yards in the fairway, then work on fixing something else.
 Which he could apparently do from 330 yards away.

My issue with this is that you need to spend so much time after the round correcting the data. For instance, you need to remember the times you used your putter but weren't on the green, the bunker shots, penalties, etc. The concept sounds great, and if they figured out a way to limit the post-round data correction I'd be in.
You have to play him, don't you? And there should money on it. If he really thinks he's as good as he has advertised that he is, he has to take the bet. And at an 11 handicap, you'll probably take him apart out there.
What does the poll have to do with the thread topic?????
I enjoy golf for what it is. I always say that it's the hardest thing I do voluntarily. Good scores are great, and I tend not to get too frustrated on the course. I just thoroughly enjoy being out there playing.   Going from a 2 handicap to shanks for a year, would be rough, though.
