Shot 100 yesterday.
I can tolerate that for now as it's just my second round after an extended layoff. Overall, I feel like I hit a handful of good shots and struggled from some inconsistency and a few bad decisions.
It also didn't help that it was windy all day (about 20mph).
My "pairing up" story. One evening I was out as a single. On the 2nd hole a guy drove into me. The green hadn't cleared in front of me so I had to wait. When the a**hole walked up I let him have it! He was larger than me and muscular and possibly could have pummeled me, but I was pissed.
So now the two of us are waiting for the green to clear. Told him he could join me if he wanted to, but I wouldn't let him play through. So he joined up. He apologized without being prompted. Turns out he worked in the same building as I did. Ended up actually being an inattentive nice guy. And we became friends.
And played again. The best revenge was whipping his butt every time we played.
I don't mind being paired up; I have met some real nice people this way. Since I end up wanting to golf and most of my friends don't play, I would just call the course and say "hi, I am just a single golfer, can I play today?", and they would just say to come out here and we'll get you out. So not usually a problem.
In my way of thinking, if I don't book a foursome, I am at the mercy of the course anyway as to where and when they want to put me and that's perfectly ok, I accept that. The main thing is, I get to play!!!
