I think the 20 handicapper wins 65-70 times out of 100.


Okay, now I get it.

I'd say it was more than an "educated guess" type of "think" given the fact that you quoted some odds. I definitely wouldn't bet against you. :smartass:

Haha... I'll take the amateur 20 handicap who goes by the name of Mark... if that's his real name

No, I'm just totally goofing with you - I have no idea what either guys name is!  Too much snow is making you guys crazy over there. :beer:

OK just so were all on the same page. The difference on the Tees is more like 250 for 9 holes depending on excatly were they are. On several holes it would mean the hitting an 8 iron instead of a 6, which would mean I could be much closer to the hole ill take it if he will give it. I was terrible on the range today. just a friendly wager $10 a hole double you winnings for the match. So worse case scenario or best is $180 The Round is free. I did I mention both the pro and Joe are one year older today.

Take the distance, even more if you can! I noticed*** there are black tees and white/green tees. I would get him to play back and you forward, too.

A 3 handicap is generally 2 clubs stronger than a 20 HC if not more. So, the second shot is probably 20 yards closer for him and another 2 clubs shorter on the approach.

Do you have some statistics we could play with?

What is your average drive and your current longest drive?

What is his average driving distance?

***Are you playing this course? Front or back?

Unnecessary info, the Joe (20 HC) wins, hands down.

I have never notice either the black or green tees, I think Ill start with the black and greens and settle for blue vs white. Thinking about the driver I think I will be hitting to drivers of the Tee. It takes a relly bad shot to hit out of play and with two shots I have a good chance to get one of them out 250, longest drives this year 275 usually get one of them a round.

He wants to keep me taking lessons, also few relize how hard worse ball is.


Yeah, he should make back the $180 in one or two lessons. ;-)

Have fun.

I'm pretty sure that he realizes how hard it is. It still seems like a poor bet to take. I play matches with my instructor (no strokes), but he won't bet anything with me.

But you aren't a 20 handicapper either.

Like @iacas pointed out, the 20 is going to shoot around 46 just playing one ball, he can only improve with the second ball. The 3 handicap is going to have to play pretty solid to beat him.

Sorry...I was replying  to Pretzel's comment about playing his instructor, not to the OP about his challenge.
