This is what I post on the wall of some of these obvious bad sports .
" FORFEITS "
IDK where people got the idea that forfeiting in
coin rooms was acceptable . It is not acceptable in sports or in life in
general . It is not sporting , not polite , and in many cases not
justified . As one may still have a chance to win . There is a lot to be
said for the honor in doing ones best to complete any round . And in
coin rooms , completing a 3 hole round is not too much to ask .
selfish arguement to justify saving time to get more sponsor time for
yourself . Is not practical in 3 hole play . One can usually comfortably
get 3 complete matches in . If they go quickly , maybe 4 matches .
Sponsor rounds only cost 10 credits to 72 credits anyway .
the opponent ends the match by closing out the program and not
returning . The remaining player does not get the sponsor apparel
Or what about the thrill of trying to hit 3 eagles ? Or 2 eagles and a bird ? Or 1 eagle and 2 birds ? Or just 3 birds ?
Not going to happen with these forfeiters .
Come on man . Let's play 3 full holes .
I recently accidentally clicked on a 9 hole Beverly Hills round . At first i
freaked out . Thinking oh no I will only get 1 sponsor round . Then
thinking why would I want to play a whole 9 holes that weren't even
ranked ? I seriously considered forfeiting . But I could not . Playing a
very good Tour Master ( claiming he has the # 1 spot in the Diamond 1
League with 200,000 at that time ).
It was a very good friendly and competitive round . At the end he won by 1
We both thoroughly enjoyed the round .
In another round recently . He was a guy from Phx . Originally from
Maine . Things were going GR8 . We were tied going into the 3rd hole .
His approach was out on the fringe . Mine wasn't GR8 at 5 yds from the
hole . But he immediately forfeited . WHAT ? He could have made his chip
shot or gotten close . I could have missed my 5 yard putt ( good bet I
would have missed ) . And at the very least tied . But we will never
know . And the friendly guy from my hometown . Wasn't so friendly after
IDK what the answrs are ? These rounds aren't supposed to
be about the W's or L's . Some fight for placing in the Diamond leagues .
Some just want to play as fast as they can . If you use more than 20
seconds on the 45 second clock . They tell you they don't have all day .
I play to play . That's all . To play the courses , the
holes , the very competitive players in the Coin Rooms . I play to
finish the round . Mostly 3 holes . I expect the same from my opponent .
Yes I expect that .
Since technically they are not really "
speed rounds " . I think they could find a way to make them count . As
ranked rounds . If only in the 9 holers .
9 holes is a lot of time and effort to not count for anything . But I am sure that would gain a lot of interest .
It would no doubt be difficult to incorporate in the format as it is . But they could be a new kind of Coin Room .
ranked Coin Play . 9 or 18 holes ( 9 holes counting double to equal an
18 hole round of course as it already is .now in ranked rounds .
special algorithm . Just the stats and the regular algorithm . Lowering ones average with better
lower scores . Moving up in tier by saturating and improving from there .
Doing so enabling access to better equipment . DUH .
popular lacking format . It should be a crime . And you're busted WGT .
Put in the work . And we'll consider probation . I'm not even laughing
right now .
For me , so enjoyable to play a match where I lose . Like the one below . And many others .
I also win many . Barely . But I win a hellalot more than I lose . But
it doen't matter . 3 holes are a fun but unsatisfying way to keep
playing the game .
If 9 holes were ranked . That would be a different story .
Just this week There was both a Champion and a TC that quit after the 2nd holes . They both got the wall post above . They deleted them immediately of course . But they got the message .
Check out this tie breaker yesterday :
me - 1.66
him - 2.69
Love it .
EDIT : These rounds are so not about the Tier , Level , or Average . They are about how you perform . With your knowledge , skill , equipment , savvy and luck . Just like the opponent .
