FOUR SOME QUESTIONS

My buddies and I want to do a foursome / doubles play but our problem is noone's scores match up good to do doubles. We are open to suggestions on how to pair up.

Our scores at our home course are:
1. -2 - even (Justin)
2. -1 - +1 (Ray)
3. +6 - +8 (Dan)
4. +18 - +20 (Mike)

Ona any given day, ray and juustin can beat each other. Dan has shot as low as -2, but also gets up to + 10 some times. Mike just started and gets frustrated playing with us, because we all out drive him, and he misses easy putts like noobs normally do.

I'd pair Ray and Justin vs. Dan and Mike. Give Dan and Mike a -8 to their total round, and Mike (only) is allowed 3-4 mulligans. Tweak until it's usually a wash.

If Mike can play a little more to be able to roughly figure a handicap - then it wouldn't matter who he is paired with. Then he could shot a great +5 round for him and that would be like a shooting -4 for or so for Justin.

Is it just me or does this sound like a math word problem?

I agree with this. Then if it needs tweaking you can use some of the other ideas as far as giving strokes and mulligans.

i usally play very conservetive on my 2nd shots and long putts(approach shots) but always go for it of the tee so i usally do better with noobs who basically just get u in the fairway as apposed to someone who is very good but who will throw the same shot u just screwed up on instead of playing it safe.Doubles really is a different beast i think the best partner alot of times is someone who wont make the same mistakes as you, basically a par safty net. so i would say put mike with the guy that loves to go all out all the time.but u might just wanna flip for it u just never know what will work ,alot of people dont know this and talk alot of sh** but anna kornacova is actually a pretty badass doubles player and has won a few touneys but shes never won on her own

I like the tennis reference and you are right, it is very true.
