Sorry you are experiencing that. I really dont know why they do it - I think they are just fooling themselves really trying to protect a rating. They mean naught really.
Be happy to play a round with you. Only problem is I am in Australia so the time zones are a bit different.
I would be happy to tee up (pardon pun) a round with you if we could organise it. Oh yeh - I dont quit rounds when the going gets tough - so you're safe there.
I have never played multiplayer games before so it would be a godd experience, I need to try it one time, just in case I get into one of these multiplayer tournaments.
Be happy to be a friend if you're interested. Happy playing and keep practicing.
