I played today with a +2 handicap. I heard he was +2 before the round started, and I said, "I'd love to see what a +2 looks like." The other guy who was hosting me said, "well you're about to."
I ended up being in the cart with him. We only played 9, but he was 5 under going into the last hole, which he bogied from being in the lateral hazard off the tee (but playable, in some dirt/tall grass). It wasn't as amazing as watching the one guy I played with hit the ball 300+ (real, not internet), but it was impressive in another way. Fairway, green, and a 20 foot putt was the norm. When he had a putt inside of 10 feet for birdie, he made all but one of them (missed a 4 footer on a par 5). Then made getting up and down look like a piece of cake on one of the two greens he missed.
I eventually asked him what his low 9 was, while he was in the hazard on the ninth hole. He said it was 8 under. Went on to say his low 18-hole round was 63. How cool is that? He probably drove it right in the 275-280 range (real, not internet, so that's impressive) and it was really consistent. It's just not amazingly, incredibly astounding. It's simply impressive because it makes golf look like an easy game. Course slope was like 135 with a 70.1 rating.
I play with a guy like that. We call it "boring" golf. He just stays out of trouble most of the day right down the middle. Unreal short game. Nothing really wows you until you add up the scores and think, "holy shit, where did that come from". People are so mesmerized by big hitters as the ball takes off into the atmosphere.....yet those guys are in trouble all the time and struggle to recover from it and likewise miss out on good scoring chances. That and their short game sucks because they don't practice it because it's boring.
90% of guys I hear boasting about their driver length are rarely that good. Hence the only score they know is 300yrds. The few times they actually hit the fairway and are wedge out they still bogey. I'll take boring golf any day of the week.
