I was approached today in a restaurant by a club member asking me to play in a scramble with him. I've never spoken to the guy, just seen him around the course and around town. I know from the posted handicaps that he's around a 4, as is the rest of the team. He introduced himself, and asked me if I was the guy playing on tuesday,wearing a black shirt. I verified that I was, and he then told me he'd like to have me on the team for my driver and putter. I made sure he knew that my iron play left alot to be desired, and was told not to worry about that, the rest of the team are excellent at the midgame.
I've played in several scrambles with friends, but never been asked to join a team for my golf abilities. It's a boost to my ego, and I always seem to play better when I'm around better golfers, so it should be a fun time.

So what happens if you absolutly suck at driving that day? Just think about, those other 3 guys are going to be counting on you to drive well so every single drive will be a high pressure shot. And the putter too? Ouch.

Wow... talk about missing the point of the post and killing the mood.

No shit, way to get into guys head. Even is being sarcastic

Gimmie a break and stop projecting your own fears on others. I'm not sure grown people need a silly "go get 'em, you're the best!!!" speech. A little taunting is good for a competitor. This isn't pre-school.

No fears, here. I just thought it was a dick thing to do. They guy obviously knows he's is playing with a higher caliber group of players and being counted on for 2 things. I am sure he's already stressing about the point, no need to reinforce it, that's all

It is great when you get noticed like that. Go out there and play like you always do...you will be fine!

No worries guys, I'm not the type to stress about anything, especially a little razzing on an internet board.
Given the level these guys play at, I'm pretty sure they're not counting on me to carry the team by any means. I'll be happy if we can use a few of my shots here and there.

Well, boys ... I haven't a thing to say. Played a great game...all of you. Great game. I guess we just can't expect to win ‘em all. I'm going to tell you something I've kept to myself for years. None of you ever knew George Gipp. It was long before your time, but you know what a tradition he is at Notre Dame, and the last thing he said to me -- "Rock," he said, "sometime, when the team is up against it and the breaks are beating the boys tell them to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper. I don't know where I'll be then, Rock", he said, "but I'll know about it - and I'll be happy."

Good, you have the right attitude to succeed at competition then. Unfortunately, some others here apparently don't and are easily set off by little things that any person not scared of their abilities would find more gamey than anything. It's sad so many still need encouragements from their fathers and hugs from their mothers to feel confident. Sad, sad people. Good luck!
