First time posting. Had to respond to this. I am a "newbie" to golf, approximately 2 years. I book tee times as a single about 80% of the time. Like others, I enjoy the solitude and relaxation of playing by myself. I keep an accurate score, putt out every hole, take penalties etc. I do this because I keep my own stats. If I'm not honest with my scoring, I can't see what I need to work on and improve.
Half the time I may join up with another single or a double. Allways difficult because you don't know what your going to get ie someone who drinks a lot, gives advise on EVERY shot etc. g
