Match play is a great format, and I think I would enjoy playing it a lot more.  The Ryder Cup and Presidents Cups are great too, as is this ONE event.  But just remember what happens on the final day of a major non-team match play event.

 

We all complain all the time about Nick Faldo and Johnny Miller and David Feherty, and them only showing a small handful of golfers who are in contention down the stretch during a normal stroke play event.  On Sunday there are 2 guys playing golf for 4 hours.  4 if you count the consolation match, but they don't even show much of that thing, if I recall correctly.

 

There is a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooottttttttttttttttttttttttt of down time between golf shots.

What format do you play with your buddies?

 

We play match play almost exclusively.  Usually just a little nassau.  Individual or 4-ball depending on the group.  Easy to handicap, and it tends to speed up the round as it's easy for someone to pick up if they're out of the hole.  No one is ever grinding over a 5 footer for triple.  Plus a bad hole is just that.....only one bad hole.

 

Just about the only time I ever play stroke play is in tournaments.

 

It IS worth noting that it's important to be honest in posting your scores for handicap.  If you're not careful, it'd be easy to post scores that are too low if you're picking up when out of a hole or when a hole is conceded......

This even made shot of the day for Wednesday (2/20):

That's the thing ... I don't normally play any games with my buddies.  Next week, however, we are playing a fourball match that should be a lot of fun.  Hopefully, we can do that a lot more.

 

But typically I'm golfing with my dad and father in law that just don't have any interest in playing for anything. d1_bigcry.gif

 

With two little ones at home, I also have trouble finding time to play, so I don't have a regular game, and oftentimes when I do get out, I'm playing with strangers.

 

So, I'm just out there trying to score my best, and that's about it.

I've always said, I'd rather win $5 from one of my golf buddies than find a $100 bill on the ground!  a1_smile.gif
