I find it frustrating that when playing the Showdowns.(which i love playing).i get placed against Tour Legends that post a score of 17 under. What chance do i have as a Master to even be competitive
I enjoy playing in the Showdowns as well. I am a TL and have never placed at top of leaderboard. I have seen Masters and Tour Pros in top 10, but never me. Understand, in showdowns, there are players who have multiple accounts, restarts and others that are just that darn good.
Can I win? Highly unlikely. However, I really enjoy them. I play and try to get a better placement than the last time I played. I play to see if I can make top 50 and get that extra case. I play for free apparel.
I broke top 50 this last time and totally love the Under the Seas Shoes and Glove.
I play because it is fun, always. Obviously, I would love to win, I play to win, but I know odds are against it, but I play anyway.
Whether you have a chance (I presume you mean to win) or not, does it really matter? Enjoy the challenge and try to do better each time, than the previous time.
Now, obviously, I want to do better than my friends, much more fun if I can gloat a little, even if I was 48 or 64 or 70th.
Enjoy the game :)
