I was playing in a better-ball with a high handicapper, and he had a long shot into a hole where he was the only one getting a shot. He had a four-iron in his hand and I asked him, "How often have you hit that club onto this green?" He answered, "Never, but there is always a first time", and hit the ball 30 yards left of the green, made a double, everybody else made bogey and we halved the hole. Later in the round he had a 3-wood in his hand on another hole where he got the only shot, and I reminded him of the earlier hole. He wisely took out a 7-iron and hit it short of the green. Of course, he hit the resulting wedge into a greenside bunker and didn't even finish the hole. There was no convincing him that it was the right thing to do. Needless to say, he is no longer my better-ball partner.
