Are Tourneys Fun?

Many of us compete for various reasons. But do you actually have fun playing in tournaments?

Hello my friend bigsky!!!

Heck yeah, tourneys are so fun. Especially when you have a group of people with a similar skillset. I think the pressure, the competition make it so much more entertaining than a casual round. I love casual rounds, but there is a different vibe in tournaments. I love it.

Are you not having fun in tourneys? May I ask, why you ask this question?

Absolutely love tournaments. I 100% don't mind losing to better players, but it's a royal pita to lose because of stupid mental mistakes and poor play.

Very fun. They put your mind to the test and your heart rate up. Tourney times definitely time to step your game up! And it shows you how you do under pressure.

I've had a ton of fun at every tournament I've been too!

For me they are. I love the feeling in my stomach when a big putt or a critical drive is coming up. Overcoming that and making the shot is what always makes me come back.

Tournys suck. Last year I placed first or second in all the tournys i entered and realized I have way more fun playing with friends, not some random douche bags. Plus the speed of play is just dreadful.

It really depends on the course as far as speed of play. What big tourneys have you been involved in specifically that were super slow. jw

I love that feeling, I think that is what makes a tourney so cool. Go out and put everything you have into it, go home, or to your hotel room etc. Check out scores, get pumped up for the next day. I love creating a friendship with people, battling it out with guys in the same skill level as you. I can't see why people would hate tourneys unless they sucked and finished last a bunch. There have been a few like that for me, they were so stupid, I had no fun. I love the competition though, and it keeps me coming back, no matter how I played.

they werent even big tournys. just taking 3-4 hours to complete 18 holes is a joke. takes 8 hours to play 2 rounds of 18 holes? what a crockpot of crap. i typically play 18 holes in an hour.

I've only played two tourneys and they were both very draining, and long. I really enjoyed competing against, and meeting other players, but overall, tourney play sucks.
