I was two over playing with a casual partner who is only 14 years old but plays well. He hangs around the club and plays after school. So we are through 9 holes when we joined up with two others - course was busy. The guys were so bad. Throwing brand new wedges 20 yards and hitting the cart path. Bashing the sand. Slamming driver down on the tee box after the second pushed ball OB.
It got to the point where I could hardly focus on my game as these guys had gotten into my head so bad.
Before getting grouped with them on front nine: +2 for 38
After getting stuck with them and their rage issues: +9 for 45
And to add, I always thought of myself as assertive in a situation like that. I said several times to my young pal to "put on earmuffs" after they swing, hoping they get the picture. Then I told them directly watch your mouth, this kid isn't one to swear and curse. When all else failed we just started laughing to ourselves as these guys got red in the face trying to keep a ball in bounds. Really sad way to put on a show for a 14 year old by two guys in their early 30's.
Best part is they asked for my card so we could play again. LOL
