Sounds like a case of mistaken identity.

I wouldn't bother keeping score for a while. Just focus on the next shot. I didn't keep score till I was throwing good enough to use a pencil without needing an eversharp. Now I don't bother with the score. It's all about the next shot. FWIW My first round on a real course was depressing through most of it. But it was those few little hints of shots to come that got me to come back. And they still do.

Then you're not the guy my buddy and I played the second half of Searight with as you claimed in the "Playing with random people thread" taking credit for 8 birdies out of 9 holes. For shame.

You're just coming to that realization? Sorry. I thought it was obvious from day one that I was just messing with you. I don't even play discgolf. I just come on here to argue about random subjects that I have no real stake in.

I played my first round at Sylmar (old Course) at +17. I played my second round later that afternoon and shot +11. Never shot over double digits again (at Sylmar). Shot my first under par round after 3 weeks... in a monthly.

Oh, how could I not have seen that? Your post was just saturated with sarcasm...

Tell him that this game is like anything else. From playing tennis to playing the guitar, nobody is an instant expert, and it takes time to learn the game. Take him out to a field, and you guys play catch with a midrange.

I think this is real solid advice.
