THE WORST I HAVE PERSONALLY PLAYED WITH SOME YEARS AGO WAS DON JANUARY.

THE BEST I HAVE PLAYED WITH INCLUDE JERRY PATE, BRENDT SNEDEKER, KENNY PERRY, NICK PRICE, LARRY MIZE AND PAUL AZINGER.

THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT AS IT IS WELL RECEIVED AND VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

I wouldn't want to play with anyone uninteresting. No one in particular, but I'd play even with guys I don't particularly like if they might be at least interesting.

Hmm, Rory is so competitive I wonder if being paired with him would take away the fun of a Pro Am.

I've played in over 30 ProAm's and Tiger is in my TOP 2 of favorite and fun pros to play with. He was engaging with all the players in our group and one of them was not a good golfer. Tiger walked with us, talked about a lot of different topics and just could not have been nicer.

+1 on not playing with Tiger.

Play with who????---Tom Watson---seems like a regular guy.

Also Tommy "two gloves" Glavin. Seems like he would be kinda fun.

Nick Faldo - sorry SIR Nick Faldo. See I'd forget to call him SIR and he have to remind me constantly. I'd just find too boring. Paul Goydos and David Faherty (if he counts) would be a scream. Even if I played badly it would be a fun round of golf.

If I had the choice, Feherty would be my first pick for a ProAm.  Even if I could play with one of the best players in the history of the game, I would choose Feherty.

    • Playing Cog Hill #2 yesterday with @cedrictheo and @NatalieB… we get to the par-three 7th, a 185-yard (or 145-yard) par three. There's a St. Judge Million Dollar Shot challenge on the hole if you choose to participate. The rules: $20 entry Hit the green, get your $20 back. Hit it to ≤ 10 feet, get $50 back. Hit it to ≤ 3 feet, get $100 back. Hit it in the hole, get $10,000 back. (No, I don't know where the "million dollar" bit comes from). We all decline, though in hindsight I wish I had just given him $20 for our group and said "keep it, please." I step up… and hit it to 30". @cedrictheo steps up… hits it to about 40". @NatalieB steps up… and we both tell her how bad she sucks, how terrible she is, etc. because she hits it to about nine and a half feet. 😄  If we had all entered we'd have won between $110 and $140. Ha ha. (I'm still glad we didn't as that would have been TAKING money from charity.) Anyway, three really good shots on a tough hole. The guy running the challenge must have thought we were nuts. He said "Man, you guys really should have entered!" 😄

    • These are a great grip, played with them for years, although I just switched to the Golf Pride CPX, which I really like as well.
    • Know how to react to them. You can't stop unlucky things from happening. You can control how you react to it.  Example above, you assume the guy is waving you up to speed up play. Your initial reaction was to rush your routine. Looking at it from this perspective, you are being waived up. So, the group in front of you knows this. There is no need to rush your routine because you are saving time while the group in front of you is waiting for the green to clear. Waiving up does not equal rush to hit. That is not where the time savings is happening.  Being a 2 handicap, know your expectations. Also, know your own stats. What is your average leave for a 7-iron? Meaning how far left or right does your 7-iron end up 8 out of 10 times. Don't guess, actually measure this. People are horrible in guessing how far offline they hit it. Let's say you slightly mishit one, but it still ends up with in your expected shot zone, ok move on. You hit a ball that was ended up 80% of the time within your normal range of outcomes. No need to get upset about it.  Let's say you hit a really bad shot. Ok, what is the reaction? Should you get upset? Should you try to press and make a hero shot? Is it early in the tournament? Where are you in the standings? What are the expected outcomes of the options given to you? If you have an alley to hit a punch shot, and you know you can hit that shot "X" percent of the time, what is that compared to punching out right and hitting a longer iron in for the 3rd?  Also, take on the challenge of the next shot. If you hit a shot in the bunker, look at it as a game within a game. Instead of getting dejected, get excited about getting to hit a challenging shot. When people get anxious/nervous they are actually getting excited. Those two reactions come from the same area of the brain. Meaning, it is how we frame them that determines if we will be looking forward to something or hating it. You are not initiating fight or flight responses on the course. There is a lot of this that is just framing things in a certain way.  Guess what, you can practice all this. Go play 9 holes, and before each shot run become self-aware of your emotions and initial reactions. You got to train yourself to let those unneeded reactions go by and replace them with productive responses to the situation at hand.
