When you have to hit 7 iron or longer into all of the greens but your opponents are hitting flip wedges, full wedges, or knockdown short irons, you are bound to be streaky in results.
Exactly. There always has to be the short hitters based on the bell curve. The fact that he can still contend is impressive.
I'd also strongly advise getting your camera angles totally correct. It's possible the camera angle is making the inside takeaway look even worse than it is. I'm sure you've seen this before but just to reiterate I'll link it again.
Yeah. None of my rounds are particularly competitive except the Duck game when I play it. I couldn't care less about some unknown person I am paired with in a casual game and what he scores, but I still hang around on the green because I have always found it the paramount distraction when it's the other way around.
Yeah. That's the practical reason why you stay with your group on the green and the tee.
We're talking about sticking around the green as a matter of manners. What the real purpose always had been was to make sure the little bastard eventually holes the ball and counts every stab it took him to do it.
