Just to be perfectly clear:

I'm not asking if the convicted offender should or shouldn't be allowed to play. My assumption is, THEY ARE... and you're on the same card.

How would you handle that particular scenario? As I said earlier, sometimes it's hard to know how you'd react to a situation, until you're actually placed in it.

I'm out for the casual round. If it's a tourney, my first inclination is to play and see how I feel after a few holes. It's possible I'm so focused on my game, that the fact that I'm playing with a scumbag isn't bothering me too much.


If I find that I'm wrestling with my conscience, I'm gone.

The other side of not knowing the whole story:

These ex-cons were convicted of crimes that could be proven in a court of law. I'm pretty sure those that have been proven are not the first and only time they did it.
Well, according to all of them it is or they're innocent no matter how much evidence there is against them.

I know of a guy that did 15 years being convicted of 3 charges for raping a child under 13, per the public record rap sheet. My opinion is those 3 times were not the only times he raped that child.

A conservative estimate is that 1 in 25 of all death row inmates in the US are innocent. 138 death row inmates have been exonerated and released after their innocence has been proven.

Many innocent people plead guilty to avoid going to trial.

They know that a conviction during a trial could lead to a much longer sentence/penalty than taking a plea bargain.

Wait, more ridiculous than anything Casey's posted? Oof, that's a tough pill to swallow. But at least it's not coming from an expert on law.

To answer the actual question, I suspect it depends on two factors: 1) Did I know the person and find them unobjectionable before finding out this information? and 2) Is it a casual or tournament round? That gives us a nice matrix.

Knew them, tourney round: would play on
Knew them, casual round: would back out if others were there to play, would probably soldier on if it was just us two
Didn't know, tourney round: would see if I could change cards, if not would probably soldier on
Didn't know, casual round: would invent an excuse to play alone

Mr. Show tackled that problem.
