I've seen so many people both suck and be pretty decent with so many different types of equipment I don't judge much any more.  There are a few I still have in my head though.   Blades with dime siz

Let's see.....I wear flatbills, I have a bag full of TMag sticks, and play X-Stiff, so........

I look like a bag of %$#& and play like one too...there's consistency to consider!!

As someone who lived in NJ for years, I know. I'm talking about the guy who shows up 3 months into the golf season like that.

You can have a great looking swing with terrible results, or a bad looking swing with great results. You can't always predict how someone will play by how their swing looks, that's for sure. I was surprised that day.

It's obvious we haven't played together or you would have included " bad looking swing with results to match"

We had one of these guys, but eventually it became entirely clear that people didn't want to play with him, and he left.

 

 

Yeah......and now we have added "the Drunk",  the guy that is too loud and way too boisterous.....but thanks me every week for letting him play.  So now we have Two guys that no one wants to play with.  Makes my job even harder since I have to set the pairings......Ugh!

You're describing pratically every scramble I have had the misfortune of playing in.

"This is my first round of the year." And it's AUGUST.

I remember reading Harvey Penick's Little Red Book years ago and he talked about judging golfers before they played.  He told one of his students at a higher level tournament that was making fun of someone's grip and swing....if they made it here with that grip and swing then the obviously learned to score and get around the course.  Sage advice.

 

That being said, I see guys every week that show up like they just walked off the Tour and couldn't break 120 on the best day.  My favorite guy this year had a full bag of Titleist gear, FJ head to toe and could not get the ball more than 80 yards off the tee; then decided to wait for the green to clear from 320 just in case he "got hold of one."  That lasted about two holes before I told him to just hit and I would yell if it got close.....never even came close to sniffing green for the last 17 holes.

I like to dress the part to play golf.  Not overly so... just reasonable... respect for the game.  Years ago, while living in Miami I met a guy on the first tee wearing cut-off levis, tee-shirt and barefoot.  Easy mark... we made a bet on the round.  I shot a 76... should have skunked him.  He shot a 67.

 

Lesson quickly learned.

I play mostly by myself and have learned not to make any early assumptions. I take a wait and see attitude. I've learned you have to play with the group your with for a few holes before you get to know them. I've seen the quiet guy go nuts and start throwing clubs after a few bad hits and the loud mouth laugh off his mishits and just have fun. You just never know but, overall I've had a lot more fun with the many golfers I've met than not.

Pulled a Hot Deal at 7:00am for an 11:00 am start on a very nice course I had wanted to play for some time. Told I would be going with a twosome when I checked in at the clubhouse. Hit the range and putting green for a bit. I didn't see anyone else, so at 10:55, I started towards the first tee.

 

I got there and took a few swings for just a second giving the other two a second to show up. At 11:01, I went ahead and teed off. (Sliced just to the right edge of the fairway in case you were on the edge of your seat).

 

As I headed down to my cart I see coming down from the clubhouse in a cart running as fast as possible, two young men who might have been 18 or 19. Dressed in surf shorts, very well worn Polo shirts, and caps with bills worn promptly to the side.

 

"Oh crap. Young punks with no respect or manners." I have played with such kids before and was not looking for this to be any different. I try my hardest to extend every courtesy and follow every protocol while on the course.

 

The young men jumped out and apologized for being late in manners that would make a prep school headmaster proud. For the entire round, I was constantly amazed at how mature these young men were. We would crack jokes between holes and chat. They lived right off the course and actually gave me several tips on certain holes.

 

I had been playing six months and believe that the advice from these guys were what allowed me to break 100 for the first time.

 

So I guess the bottom line is I will not hold youth against people just because they dress young.

I've played with several people like that. They show up late, but end up being really nice and actually decent people. I don't really judge people on how late they are, because I know what it's like to run late.

What assumptions do you make when you see someone, (for me, usually on the range) rocking a bagful of the same SGI range. The last I saw was a bagful of Ping K15's. They all looked really shiny and well looked after...or unused.

 

I can't deny that I made huge assumptions.
