I personally would welcome and enjoy playing with any golfers who just join flight with me and my regular golfing friends for the 1st time. I would be able to learn somethings from the good players or just enjoy the morning stroll with a beginner golfers.

The question is WHO will truly enjoy or benefited from a join flight with a lousy player like myself (Hcp 22).???

Based on a true events happen in NSRCC Changi one Monday morning, myself, Patrick and Golfiekids met for a morning stroll with buggy. Dr Yeo couldn't make it so my slot was release to the golfing counter. A Hcp 8 player join us. Lets name this person Mr X ( I asked his permission to post this thread)

We started the beautiful day with thundering drives, we played from White teebox although the mashal handle me the Blue Teebox card. Golfiekids's wrist still in pain so we moved to white teebox.

Myself, Pat and Golfie drove around 200m..Mr X thunder passed our ball at least 60m.... He par the next 3 holes and almost birdie the 4th. Than Golfiekid started his story telling.....stories of S'pore during the WWll Japanese occupation, the future of England Manchester United Football Club and his power collections of Panerai.........Pat started his Green Hornet Kato darts, his balls wizzy passed under and over trees and skipped over water and blasted the bunker till i have to call the maintenance guys to fill up the bunker with sands.......MINE act the best......I can disappeared from my last seen location and reappeared with 3 pond or bush ProV in my hands.......

Now this whole time, Mr X played his games and we didn't distract him whatsoever....slowly he blasted sand bunker like SD........talk to Golfie about his Tour Of Vietnam.......and ever help me fish out a Water Monitor Lizard egg, a Jackfruit and 1 dozen balls from pond and bushes ......

His game had became 3 holes Double Par, 6 holes Double bogeys...OB 3 holes........

After the last holes, we exchange contact and he is looking forward to play with us again in the future.

So is it that a good player game can be affected by a bunch of lousy players ? Myself learn how to read the putting line from Mr X, Pat drive even longer after Mr X suggested that he should clocked his wrist and whip the Driver....as for Golfiekid....it another story.

What I have found is it all comes down to the mental aspect. If have good focus when you step up to your ball pace of play and what happens between shots usually doesn't matter. Again, usually being the case as there are always exceptions. I find these golfers play more in the moment instead of worrying about the past or what could happen. Those kinds of golfers will tend to play all over the place if they can't play their game. I personally love playing with golfers of any ability. Though I have my days where I want to just go out and play my game but overall I really don't care and it doesn't effect me. I always try to learn something new when playing with others, you can always learn something from an absolute beginner all the way up to a seasoned player, just depends on how you approach the round.

I absolutely agree!  Whoever I play with, whether it be beginner or experienced, you can have a great time talking and enjoying the weather.  But, when it comes to the golf shot, one has to be mentally driven to hit that shot like normal.  For some reason it can be hard, because either you want to show off to your friends, your helping someone else out and not focusing on your own game, or you just can't get into focus when having a great time playing with people.

Here's what I see in my own game when a new person joins.  If the newbie is AT my level, I tend to push things just a bit physically...a bit harder swing to try go gain an edge.  This MAY get me through the round 1 or 2 strokes better than my average round.

If the newbie is WAY BETTER than my, I tend to try to play my game smarter to keep from throwing away strokes with bad decisions.  I spend that extra 5 or 6 seconds it takes to make a last second alignment check, or take an extra practice swing.  This MAY get me through the round 1 or 2 strokes better than my average round.

If the newbie has a HIGHER HANDICAP than me, I tend to relax and maybe try some shots that I don't normally use in a close round...you know the one, a low draw under a tree limb, over water, and sand, into a hard fade wind, to a rock hard green, from 125 yards.  ;-)  This MAY get me through the round 1 or 2 shots better than my average round.

Or not.

Regardless of outcome, I like playing with different people of any skill level.  I've played courses that periodically had manditory random group selection so it wasn't the same guys playing with the same guys all the time...and it prevents someone stacking a team.  Those nights were fun to play.
