Glad to see your viewpoint is firmly in the minority.

Umm, that's an average score.  And if you play on a public course with a threesome, you have to expect a joiner.

I suppose that you never played that badly, even when just starting out?

You're making an unsupported assumption.  There is nothing in the tone of his post that would lead anyone to that conclusion.

His first post was a picture of Holly Saunders.  That, the ridiculous nature of his post, and my general preference to give people the benefit of the doubt is enough for me to feel comfortable saying "I think he is being sarcastic."

What is she doing with that pencil?  Who comes up with this stuff?  "Now, I want you to stand over by the bunker, take that pencil, point it at your face, and stare off into the distance.  Ooooh, yeeeaah.  Thaaat's it."

Looks like she is trying to figure out her score on the hole. Or maybe on which hole I will score? Yeah, that's it!

Just out of curiosity, if she shoots over 100 are you going to heckle her? You know, for being subjected to 4 hours of terrible golf?

My only complaint was that I didnt light up a cigar because she was riding with me, but we actually had a good time. (And she was a much faster player than my 2 friends)

We've got a core group of senior ladies that get around the course quickly.   I've been behind them before waiting on the first tee when paired with non-members.  It gives me a chuckle when they grumble....."oh great, look what we are stuck behind."    I'll say to him that don't need to worry about them.  And then my group struggles to maintain pace because the guy grumbling is too slow to keep up.  LOL

There's a group of 50-60 year old, 4 ft tall Korean ladies that walk at our club, and they're surprisingly fast as well.  Faster than 90% of the average players around here.  They don't waste any time, and from what I've seen, they actually don't play too bad.  Now their husbands, who play from the blue tees at 7001 yards are a different story.  They don't hit the ball far enough or well enough to play from back there, and always back up the course behind them.  I wish the ladies would give them some lessons on how to play faster.

I can play with just about anyone, but its not a lot of fun for me to play with really bad players. If someone can break 100 and at least advance the ball each time I can play with them. What I can't deal with is someone who has to hit the ball 4 times before we get to my drive. That's gets old in a hurry. 

 

That being said I still prefer to play with friends, although I have had some great rounds with strangers.

Women are usually pretty quick because they don't have to chase the ball all over the course. Less drastic misses, tend to hit short and straight, don't fart around on the course like guys do. There's a bunch of older, bogey handicap level women and my parents club. They can be tough to keep up with.

I have found that it is a good motivator for pokey players to be playing behind women who play at a good pace.

Even more motivated to catch up if it's the lady in Buckeye's avatar.
