Aw man, I just had three of the most awful rounds of golf ever over the last few days. The first was this guy who drank so much beer that he was completely missing the ball on his tee shots! He actually swung at the ball 4 times on a par 4 elevated tee without touching the ball and was almost falling down after his swing. Of course he finally got it down the fairway and on the green after a crappy drive, chip out, approach shot, chip over the green, chip and a two putt. He claimed a triple. I was like dude that was a freaking 11! Count your strokes man! I didn't want to give him my opinion of playing golf and getting drunk off his a$$ so I kept quiet and just observed and made a mental note: NEVER BE THAT GUY!
The next one was a younger guy who hit some pretty decent shots but every time he mad a bad shot he would slam his club into the ground and act like a spoiled brat. DUDE you are not a pro and you DID NOT just lose a million bucks on that shot. Calm down!! He acted like this the entire round and just totally irritated me to the point that I couldn't play worth a crap. Well I suck anyway, but he made me suck more! I don't know how he didn't break a club.
Lastly was this a$$hole I played with that honestly was about the most mean spirited person I have seen in a long time. While we were playing I was just starting casual conversation and the guy would not respond to any kind of friendly chat. I understand concentrating on your game but if you can't have a friendly conversation and play golf at the same time then what is the point in playing a social game! I' m bad but this guy was slicing and hooking all over the place and all in the complete silence that he wanted. I never said I word after I realized he was like that. When he sliced or hooked it I just hit my next shot and kept moving It got to the point that it was downright awkward to even stand on the tee box with him. Finally it ended with him saying, he's going back and playing the previous holes alone as if I was doing something to piss him off. He kept complaining on bad shots saying he was "making a swing change". hahahahaha.
Have you guys had any recent bad experiences with playing partners?
