So I played in an annual golf outing yesterday at a nice local club. Format is a shamble made up of a foursome and a pro. The pro's are mainly mini tour guys who are undecided as to whether or not they will try to make a living at golf or find a real job. Anyhow, we get paired with this 26 yr old kid named Tyler from San Diego. I asked him if he is playing a lot and apparently he makes a living doing appraisals and will do a Golden State tournament here and there. Basically, he hasn't played in a month.
Well, long story short this kid shot a 66 with a double and two bogeys. The part I hated (sarcasm) was that he kicked everyone's **** with this bag of junk:
Driver- TM SLDR
3 Wood- TM Aeroburner
Irons- TM Tour Preferred MC's
Meanwhile, I had my latest and greatest gear shooting a 76 from the whites.

    When I first clicked on your post I thought it was going to be a mini tour guy having his worst day ever and throwing down an 86 from the tips

    Yup. Especially with 7 year old gear. LOL

    Tiger has the record at this course shooting 62 and I thought this kid had a chance at it until he hit one OB.

    Shambles format wouldn't qualify for course record but cool setup tourney. Part of the country?

    I have played in a event exactly like this. The pro has to play his/her own ball. The Am's play shamble. Also, Am's can usually play the pro's drive a certain amount of times.

    I don't know why people are shocked that you can't buy natural talent and ability, or thousands of hours of practice and grind.
