QPartner invited me to play golf at his country club. Problem is I suck. I mean, I’m really bad. Heard the partner is good. Like a 5 handicap or something. Should I play?
AAbsolutely not. Just come clean and tell him you suck and that playing with you would do irreparable damage to your relationship and significantly affect your chances at making partner. Choice B is to tell him your parents are in town and you need to reschedule. Then immediately book a series of lessons at the nearest country club and get to work on your golf swing. Lesson to be learned: Don’t say you play golf unless you actually play golf. Good golfers hate playing with shitty ones. Fact.
