You kept score your first round? With first timers (or second or third) I'd say forget keeping overall score. Just let them play on a hole to hole basis and if they par or even birdie a hole great job, if not no worries. To keep him playing, don't have him think about score, just about the throws.

Agreed. Besides, that was 23 yrs ago and MANY, MANY beers ago. How could I remember

But, your friend did well. I have the same problem gettin' newbs into it. They think they have to play like you to even consider it. But, how you give some1 20 yrs of advice and technic in 2 rounds? I say to keep it up and all the newbs will be crushing us ol' men..... J/K Old Guys Rule!!!

Get four people and play doubles. One of my first rounds was playing doubles. There is not as much pressure if you are playing casual with your buddies.

...waits for sidewinding to come in with his story of hitting chains from the teebox during his first time. How could you not get addicted after that?

I shot a about an 80 on a par 54, so about +26.

Now I might score around a 60.

Well I had one round that I was messing around with a buddy of mine and we ended up not even playing the course right. I really do not even count that as my first round. So my first real round I shot a 70 on a par 54 course. On Monday I shot a 55 on the same course.
