Who do you prefer to play with?


Recommended Posts

Do you prefer to play with people who are better, worse, or on the same level? For me it's definitely better. Makes me bring my A game. If I play with someone who is worse (not for sure if they even exist) I tend to slack off. If we're on the same level I end up taking unnecessary shots to kinda prove to myself I'm better than they are. But when they are better than me (almost every other golfer in the world) I try to play smart, you know lay up when you might be able to reach it in two, but if you don't you're in big trouble. Seems like my best scores come when I'm playing with people out of my league.

I don't really have a preference, I just don't want them to be a dang pro and make me look like the peasant that I am haha.

I prefer to play with people better than me. My focus raises and I play a lot better challenging my self to hang with the better player. I also learn a lot watching them and what shot they will play in certain situations.

I play with people of all skill sets and have no problem doing it, but if I'm honest I would rather play with people who are better than me, but not so much better that I don't feel like I can compete with them at all, if that makes sense.

 

I actually play me best when I'm solo and it's just me vs the course.

I don't care too much. As long as whoever I'm paired with has fun, it's all good. I don't like guys who think they're really good and think they should be executing shots like a Tour pro, and then get really mad at themselves for not doing so...

As long as you are there to have fun and not throwing a temper tantrum, I don't care if you're a pro or 40 handicapper

So much these two.  I play golf to enjoy it and sure compete a bit.  But if someone is acting like a total DB on the course, then it takes away the enjoyment from  everyone.

You can be a pro, you can be a beginner.

You can talk all you want, you can remain silent for hours, etc...

I don't care, but PLEAAAAAASE don't be slow!

Skill does not matter to me - I like to play with people that enjoy the game, don't play slow, and understand the basic rules of the game.

We are on the same page, I totally agree with you.   I enjoy playing with anyone that wants to have a good time.    I am not real fond of those that aren't as good as they think they are, especially the one's willing to tell you how good they are.   My high school baseball coach told me-if you're really good at any endeavor, you don't need to say a word, others will let if be known.  

 

Mostly on Sundays, I will go to the course as a single and get matched with a group.  It is very rare that I play with anyone with whom I did not enjoy their company.   As I have said before, I don't know if its because golf attracts good people or golf makes good people.  But my experience its that golfers are good people.

I get it that pretty much everyone on here has the same mentality on golf including myself. We play to have a good time. Nobody wants to play with an A-hole or that D-bag or a sloth. I guess I should rephrase the question to, what skill level brings out the best in your game. Maybe it's a lower skill level that when you're beating them you relax and play better. Nothing wrong with that. Maybe if they are better and you have to play catchup you turn into this clutch player.

It's always been said you play to your competition. I can play better players and my game is elevated and I can also play with players not as good as me and get walk in to a high score before I know it.

If I'm in a league game or a game with a lil cash on the line. Give me the A player and I like my chances better than if I played the D guy lol.

Boils down to what kind of match it is I guess.

I play the best when I'm comfortable with who I'm playing with. That usually means guys I know don't really care how I play. So skill level doesn't really affect me but I guess there's not an intimidation factor with guys worse than me.

 

The only guys I prefer not to play with are those who take themselves too seriously and those who are condescending. Just not a whole lot of fun to play with.
