Going to have to try and set the course up a little bit harder this week. I don't believe that we have enough land to really make it much of a challenge for him. He has a huge arm. A lot of people who play league are afraid to come out anymore when he shows up, but I am not one of them because I enjoy playing no matter what. I have gotten paired up with him on at least two occasions this year and both times we won. So a lot of the time you are just hoping to get him as a partner. And on top of all that it was quite windy yesterday. I kind of wish that I had been in his group last night so that I could have seen it go down. Just checked out his player rating on the PDGA website. It is 1003.
We play that way here..... but only in the snow, we call it winter cali. And once you are inside of 30 you only get one putt unless you didn't use your cali shot prior to that putt.
That is just the way it has been played here for as long as I can remember. I guess that it is a way to get $5 more into the pot. Another guy paid the $5 a few days later but failed to produce and we even gave him three strokes. And the guy who won that day with 18 down said that he really only used his second shot on maybe one occasion. He is just that good.
Now Monday I ran league and the best score for doubles was only 7 down. Seems that the course got set up a bit harder. We need to keep it that way so that league is a real test. I also don't believe that the guy who shot 18 down won on Monday. He might have come in second (with a partner) but I don't remember.
