Yesterday one of the guys in our alt shot group said . " Quitters are taking over the game " . I really didn't know what to say . But I said " Let's take it back " .
Even though a round may have no stats or scores . It is still a game . For most of us . We get experience . Especially if your having a bad round . Practice hitting out of the fescue . What better time to do it . Even if you are 4 over . Plus some good chat . And just plain fun .
But it is obvious that there is a type of player that is only there for the win . Or coins I guess . So many times . Having a good neck and neck round . I hit close to the hole on the last hole . Not a given but I'll probably win . He's got a 12 yrd pitch . He don't even care he has already forfeited . Why not play the shot . Make an effort . It's only one more shot .
Heck . Most of us will play 3 or 4 more holes several strokes over . Just because it is good sportspersonship . And the experience . And the fun just playing .
I still get about 50% of opponents in coins . That won't speak a word . Not even a pw or gg . All Americans I might add .
Just doesn't seem like they got the memo . This s__t is fun .
