    Champions Tour - Scott Parel (WHO??)

    Jay Sigel comes to mind. You’re right though, with more money and incentives available now, the guys from the regular tour are much more likely to make the transition. Which makes it extraordinarily hard for anyone not already playing at the highest level to compete.

    Champions Tour - Scott Parel (WHO??)

    This. ^^^^ I get a kick out of the amateurs, even those very good by amateur standards, who think that they’ll finally make the jump to professional golf on the Champions Tour when they turn 50. I always ask the same question. Look at the guys your age on the PGA Tour right now. If you can’t compete with them now, why do you think you’ll be able to do so at age 50?!

    So, How Bad Do I Get Beat...?

    Pretty typical. I was fortunate in that none of them played particularly well, or it could’ve been ugly!

    The Goose Tee

    You should get behind some of the seniors at my club! 😱

    So, How Bad Do I Get Beat...?

    I survived...kind of. Shot 79 gross. Lost 2 ways on one bet and only 1 way on the other. The stroke on 18 proved pivotal as i thought it might, with my 4 for 3 swinging 3 bets. 3 ways only cost me $30. Honestly, a better result than I deserved given the silliness of the bet in the first place!

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    You should never have to ask to play through. It should always be offered…

    What could possibly go wrong?!

    So, How Bad Do I Get Beat...?

    Yeah...There’s no doubt I have to play well, and all four of them have to play pretty mediocre. The hardest thing in something like this is the mental aspect. It just grinds you down, because of four people, there’s always going to be at least one or two that are not only in the hole, but likely playing it fairly well. You never get a break where you can catch your breath. Given the choice, I would bet against me! Should be fun though…

    So, How Bad Do I Get Beat...?

    No, I get 6 strokes...3 per side. I think I’m probably still a few strokes light of what I really should get, but we’ll see.

    Nassau. 5/5/5, so I’m on the hook for 10/10/10 x 2. 2 down presses. It could leave a mark... I do get a stroke on both 17 and 18 though, so that helps!

    It was Blanton’s. I outgrew Jim Beam about the time I got out of college and got a real job!

    Hey, I did say good bourbon!
  14. David in FL

    So, How Bad Do I Get Beat...?

    Playing in our usual 5-some next Friday...no worries, we’ll finish somewhere around 3:15ish... ...but, after a bit too much good bourbon last night, I agreed to play alone, 2 separate matches against the other two 2-balls. One team has a 4hcp and an 8, and the other is a 5 and a 7. I’m getting 3 a side from each team, playing my one ball against their two... Do I need to stop at an ATM before the round, or should I make reservations at a nice steakhouse for afterwards?!
