Re: Do You Play for Money?if i'm out with friends, we'll usually make a very small wager on the round - we'll either play scramble or match play and put something pitiful like 50 cents per hole (so that the absolute most you'll win or lose is $9). and at that amount, it's not about the money, of course. it's just extra incentive to win, to show the other guys that you're better than them.
...or at least that's how i approach it, but i'm fiercely competitive. i consider the offer to play for money an official challenge and really focus on the game then.
unfortunately, 90% of the time that i play is either with my dad (who is opposed to gambling of any kind) or by myself, so it isn't very often i get to experience the thrills and chills of having money at stake (all 9 dollars of it).
