So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners. I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots. But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end.
A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing.
First, welcome to the Sand Trap!
Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!! Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots. I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
How does that work, you fly side by side?
I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.
Welcome to the club
I recognize that I'm an objectively bad putter, too, and while I'm trying to fix that, it really shows is the discrepancy of my GIR vs birdies made stat.
Then again, I think someone (I am going from memory here) had some data that among better amateurs (I am not in the category of "better amateurs" by any stretch), there was an inverse correlation between birdies made and score. I would take comfort in that if I didn't have a 9 GIR / 0 birdies / scored 90 round in recent memory.
