And if he gets the score wrong there's penalty strokes involved.
I hate people like that, and I also hate being the guy to call "foot fault".
Kinda makes me wish it was like skateboarding, do or die with no room to cheat.
I don't blame you for getting testy with him. If we (3) were on the same card I wouldn't try to give you a penalty for cursing somebody else that was cheating.
Some what related note: I kept playing with somebody (one of my golfing friend's friend) and he would walk in front of others way too much. I would tell him "you're messing up my birdie attempt because you're parked for bogey" and stuff like that, but, he just didn't get it (he's been playing a year or two, he knows whats up by now, and none of us do that crap).. . . . . .
I got tired of this and eventually one round I hit an early guardian tree. The disc was laying maybe 10 feet behind the tree. He walks past the disc (and the tree) and 30 seconds later gets hit about ear level right across the back of the head with a 12x Roc.
We laughed our asses off.
It wasn't exactly intentional, but, there wasn't a 'head's up' given either.
('head's up' only applys to discs that go off the fairway)
