With ya Pete
I agree with ya Pete. I too play better when I play with players of the same or higher skill level. Not mention that a rec player is not going to call a pro on a foot fault. That unfortunate step over the disk on a long approach shot, or some other rule broken that would normally be a stroke or warning, plane and simple it's the rules. Casual rounds, random draw doubles and non sanctioned events are the place and time to mingle. When cash and ratings are on the line it's time to clock in and go to work.
