There will always be people who compete who just enjoy the game. I enjoy the game also but winning is the goal.

I was watching the golf channel one time and the commentators were discussing the players. They said that there are actually players on tour who are there to make a living but don't want the pressure of being at the top. They enjoy the game and the travel and the money but really don't care much for the pressure at the top. I have friends who are the same way. They are content.

What's more rewarding:

A. Winning first $45 in a three person division and playing 20pts below your rating

B. Getting second and $150 in a 25 person division while playing 20pts above your rating

?

Loreilla . . . would love to make it back, its just on the wrong side of DC from Philadelphia. Is there a course that works better for a one-day event?

The longs versus the shorts are like playing at different places. Love that course, and some year I'll make the Loreilla Open again!!

I would have to say B. While winning is important I find great pleasure in playing well. I remember coming home from tournaments so happy that I made every putt I should have made with some bonus long putts even though I didn't win. Playing well feel better than winning. People who know me well know that even when I win sometimes I will complain that I didn't play well.
