I play with my sister. She's terrible. Anything I hit that's airborne and in a forward direction she thinks is amazing. I just chuckle when she does the 'Oh my, GREAT shot, Jerry!' as the ball careens into the woods with a mondo slice.
Haha, that's true. I play with a range of people. But no one over a 35 handicap probably, so that would make them a slightly below average player I would think. I suppose some shots could look better to them than me, but as I said, it still just bothers me a little. It is rare that I actually say something to them. Normally i can just shrug it off.
I find it bothers me a lot when my day is going poorly. When I'm playing decent, one bad shot doesn't irk me. 4 in a row, we have problems :) haha

Hey, at least you can get your wife out there. I wish my girlfriend would come out with me. I could golf TWICE as much haha
