    Loads of people on here never play for credits, I hardly ever do, and to most of them a win is the most important thing. I played against a Tour Pro the other week in a match-play game and he thrashed me. Every drive hit the fairway, every approach went close and every putt went in, I didn't stand a chance. He even put his drive on the 3rd at Kiawah a yard from the pin when I was 70 yards from the green. 

    I guess he was over the moon with his win but to me it would be like me taking on Ussain Bolt with a 50 yard start. A very hollow victory

    Could not agree more, I just don't care enough :)...........Credit's is the only bit that gets me and most I believe...........................No credit's involved sandbag away if that what's floats your boat!

    Indeed, I doubt it would be a win he'd boast about.

    It's like lying on one's résumé. 

    I once got a résumé from a fellow claiming to have done a job I did when I was consulting to another company. I called the chief engineer for that company and asked who that was. He said, "Oh, that's so-and-so."  His name was pronounced much differently than it was spelled.

    I invited him in for an interview. He walked in, saw who I was, turned around and left. Heh.

    did you congratulate him on his fine shots?

    No. But if you could putt you'd have been a Legend a while back. :-)

    ps.

    did you actually congratulate the tour pro? or did the sour grapes get stuck in your throat rendering it impossible to comment..

    It was a light hearted jokey comment, you may have noticed the smiley. I won't trouble you again sir, we all have grumpy days.
