First time I met him he asked if I wanted to join up. Big black guy, ex-military. I said sure, if you don't mind moving on up to the blue tees with me (he was on the tips). He had no problem doing so. Pars and birdies were raining down on us. Now every time we play, no matter the skill level (or perceived skill level) of those paired with us, we insist on playing the blues. Even when another person is hesitant or says "I usually play tips," turns out they are never longer off the tee box and don't turn out to be a "tips" player.
I am 230-240 consistently (have recently lost some 10 yards on driver - no complaints) and he is 250-260 consistent. We have a great time and have no shame in playing from the blues. Neither of us is a "little guy" and we have not had one single person playing with us insist on playing further back.
Moral of the story is save your testosterone for the bedroom, tee it forward, watch your score drop and let yourself enjoy the game!!
Have you tee'd it forward? If you're not breaking 90, I'd suggest it.
CHEERS! (From down in front.)
