HAH got me in stitches.  Let's not take this in the direction of the "How big is your drive" thread by TourPro. c3_clap.gif

Also in the case of a good player among average players, the 3 average players could play shambles on their 3 drives to speed things up and help them get an edge against the good player.

 

I assume you don't post any of those scores for handicap?

Of course I do.  It's golf.  We also take 4 mulligans per side and gimmes within 6 feet (I usually make them anyways).  Who are you to tell me how to play by the rules!

 

I realize that you aren't serious, but you have to admit that there are those who are misguided enough to post such scores. z4_blink.gif

I seriously doubt that.  Anyone meticulous enough to keep a handicap I'm sure would know well enough to not post a score from a scramble/shamble/etc. acting like it was official and valid.

 

But I DO NOT doubt that someone shooting a good score in a scramble would brag about it as if they did it all by themselves!  b2_tongue.gif

You would be surprised at some of the handicap questions I've seen posted on various forums.  I think it's great that they do ask - it's way better to get it right than it is to keep posting bogus scores.
