Playing with Players worse than you...

How about this. My younger bro and I played last night. I've been travelling for a whole month non stop (not something I am used to doing) and pretty much burning the candle at both ends and we decided to play an 18 and the final scores were - Me- 82 my bro -81. I absolutely loved every minute of it. I struggled the whole game. My putting has been atrocious all year and now my ball striking is taking a dive because mentally, I'm burnt out. Very unfocused on my play these last few rounds but my bro actually played pretty solid. I always try to encourage him as best as I can and give him a few pointers when I see him doing something wrong. Yesterday, he was fantastic. God am I fortunate. I know I'll get it back but to see him doing so well just made it that much better  :D

I'll play with anyone who is just happy to be out the course, doesn't really mess with my game if they suck just as long as they can control there temper and have fun. I play with 2 guys from my company that are scratch players and it makes me want to be a better player.

I don't care how good or bad you are unless you are a jerk, you play slow, or you whine all the time.  If you are better than me, great for you but don't be a dick about it.  If you are hacking it, just keep up and have fun.  

I play in a tournament league and we have both low and high handicappers in the league.  We strive to pair 2 lower handicaps with 2 higher handicaps in our pairings.  I have had people complain and say, "Why can't the groupings me made up of all low handicappers or all high handicappers?"  The main reason, you would never play with everyone in the league sooner or later if we did that.  And, pace of play tends to even itself out better the way we do it.

I don't mind who I play with but hate it when they start looking at all angles on the greens as if they're putting for a row of houses. Just talking about winds me up.

I'm guilty of that one. Not so bad during a casual round, but in a tournament, it's a learned habit to read the greens from all angles.
