Who is the worst (or strangest) person that you've been paired up with?
« on: April 06, 2007, 03:10:12 PM »

I tend to play a lot as a single and get paired up with a lot of people.  Most everyone is nice to play with, and it's not that hard to adapt to someone's style after a hole or two.

Two characters really stand out for me, though.

The worst person I've been paired up with was a very good golfer, probably low, single digits.  But he completely lost it on one hole after he chunked a shot and threw his club into a tree.  The club got stuck in the tree, and he started throwing other clubs up to try and get it down.  The rest of our group just stood there in shock, but he said to go on and keep playing without him.

The part that bothered me the most was that I got the feeling that if he was playing by himself, he wouldn't have thrown the club at all.  It was almost as if he was putting on a show to demonstrate how it was completely beneath him and out of character to chunk a shot.  Unfortunately, the guy caught up with us at the next tee.

The strangest person I've been paired up with was a dude wearing a pair of ProAim putting glasses all day.  He looked like a freaking cyborg and never took them off.  I was paired up with his threesome, and his group also included the foursome right behind us.  After we would tee off, this guy would move the tee markers way back to put his friends behind us at a disadvantage.  It was a very strange day.



Anyone else get paired up with any interesting characters on a course?

I guy I use to work with invited me out with him and his two buddies. These two guys drove me nuts all day. They talked like a bad SNL skit.

"I got a bogage."
"A Boger?"
"Yup, a bogage."

or

"Got a tweeter that time"
"A bird?"
"you got it"

or

"Got a snowman"
"A Frosty?"
"Yea I'm chill'n."

I was ready to shoot myself after about 4 holes.

The coke fiend, cell phone guy was probably the worst.  Played a round with him in St. George and then got paired with him again in Layton - 300+ miles away!!!  Thankfully it was my home course and my boys in the clubhouse reworked things and saved me.

Clive was probably the strangest.  I mean, assless chaps on the golf course just aren't for everybody.

He makes it work though.

A few weeks ago, I played with three really nice ladies, but the two in the other buggy were so slow, and all they did was talk on their cell phone!!!
They are nice but I hate slow play, so I really don't want to play with them again.

Worst: the guys I got paired up with a few weeks ago. Pretty good golfers but waaaay to serious. You know the types who take 5 minutes to line up a putt, address the ball, then a bird chirps or something and they have to step away from the ball, pace for a second and then go through their whole routine again. Every missed birdie opportunity was a slammed putter and a vulgar tirade, ever made birdie putt was a fist pump and a "yeeahhh" that would put some of Aske's death metal cookie monster vox guys to shame. Oh, not to mention ultra condescending to me and my brother. We sent them on their way on the 13th tee box, which was about 12 holes too late.

Weirdest: My brother.

Kev and I usually head out to the course as a two-some, and we've never been paired up with anyone else.  There was one time - on about the hole 3 or so - that someone came up and asked if he could join us because his golf buddy left.  The round was enjoyable, nothing weird or strange.  Except he did light a cigarette once - for about 20 seconds.  Had I been expecting it, I would have asked him not to before hand, but I wasn't.  After that, I tried to be alert to catch it, should he be reaching for another one; he didn't. 

Let's see, who else have a played golf with?  Kev, Kyle (cuz), Mike (IT guy friend), and I think that's it.  So no one is really strange or weird.

I don't know if they were strange or if I was unkind.  Periodically, I like to play 9 after work and just unwind and just not worry about anything.  On one of these occasions, I met a man and his son (about 12) on the first tee and they (almost eagerly) asked if I would join them.  It became quickly apparent that they wanted me to join them so that I could give them both lessons while we played as this was only the second time that they've been on the golf course in their lives, and they never hit the range.  TFT has played golf with me, and can testify that it would be very scary for me to teach anyone anything about golf as they could turn out to be a super hacker like me.  Anyway, I did try to help them for a few holes, but then told them I needed to play ahead so that I could finish before dark.  But I did suggest getting lessons, getting Hogan's book, and working on their short game before getting back to the course.

I got invited to play in a member and three guests scramble at a local private club.  One of the other guests was the member's banker.  The guy thought he was the most important guy in the world.  Spent all day taking phone calls and making us wait on him.

The fact that I was the CFO at my company and a potential client never dawned on the idiot.

Had a guy in my group once who spent the entire round giving himself a testicular self-examination.

Ray actually told them to FOAD or he would kick their asses if they came near his turf again.
