HAH got me in stitches.  Let's not take this in the direction of the "How big is your drive" thread by TourPro.

I've tried that and I still can't break 100. Lol

I assume you don't post any of those scores for handicap?

Of course I do.  It's golf.  We also take 4 mulligans per side and gimmes within 6 feet (I usually make them anyways).  Who are you to tell me how to play by the rules!

I realize that you aren't serious, but you have to admit that there are those who are misguided enough to post such scores.

I seriously doubt that.  Anyone meticulous enough to keep a handicap I'm sure would know well enough to not post a score from a scramble/shamble/etc. acting like it was official and valid.

But I DO NOT doubt that someone shooting a good score in a scramble would brag about it as if they did it all by themselves!

You would be surprised at some of the handicap questions I've seen posted on various forums.  I think it's great that they do ask - it's way better to get it right than it is to keep posting bogus scores.
