Now dont get me wrong I'm not really looking for sympathy but I took the day off and played yesterday. Raleigh CC great Donald Ross layout. I shot a 66 and lost $30 to a 12 handicap that shot 71.....I knew he was better and played him anyway but it just amazes me what some people will do for a buck!

Was this a total stranger? Did he have a deep tan, squinty eyes, and carry a 2 iron?

I've never understood this betting on your golf game vs a total stranger, especially when handicaps are used. My God, you can't even trust people not to drive off from a gas station without paying these days, how in the world could you trust them to tell you their real handicap?

And how do people who want to bet on golf hook up? Is there a secret handshake or wave or something? In all the times I have played with people I met on the first tee, I have never had anyone ask me if I want to play for money. Which is probably a good thing. :)

I agree, I would almost never play a stranger for money. I play money games with lots of guys at my club, but I know them all and know their games. The odd time I will play with strangers and suggest a small money game on the back nine after I have seen them play for nine holes.:)

both valid points, I knew him as a 7 handicap....back problems blah blah blah made his handicap go up or so he said. I dont know about the gambling thing because rarely have I ever played with someone and not gambled!!

hehehe I won't even play with my friends for money, cheatin' bastads... :laugh:

I've been playing quite a bit with YG lately, which is good since he's better than me. Keeps me working at trying to catch up with him. I think he lets me play along so I can help him find his drives that disappear out of site (lonnnnnnng and straight) when he hits them. :D

when i play for money its always with people i know.well atleast on the course cards is another story.


i`ve never had a stranger ask me to play for money.if they did i would figure them for a hustler.

if its just for a drink then i would play figuring what the hell its only a couple bucks.
