The people I talked to were quite suprised that anyone would willingly split the pot.
    you are right. there are a few that make an agreement before the round starts that they will split the ace pot if one of them makes it, but not everybody. i am one of those people that dont split the ace pot. if a person hits an ace they get the money, both people arent throwing the disc at the same time so why split the money? even if the first person lays up so the other can run it that is their choice to lay up. they could go for the ace instead of laying up. this is not a team sport and i really enjoy the fact that i dont count on anybody else for my success or failures while playing. it is an individual sport and a ace is an individual accomplishment.

      It is not an individual sport when you are playing doubles. It is a team sport.

      Most of the doubles events down have a very friendly and fun atmosphere. Sharing the ace pot just feels like the right thing to do.

              My partner was a very good friend of mine so we were splitting it but once I hit it he only wanted $100 and I got $161. It was a nice payout for us both.

                A very fair compromise for the larger ace pots.

                  You've actually played doubles, right? And you don't think that that is a team sport?

                  I hope we never get partnered up. I would have to give you half of my ace money out of it being the right thing to do. And it doesn't sound to me like you would deserve it.
                  ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                    Sam, i am not against being partnered with anybody. if it comes up about spliting the ace pot if my partner or i hit an ace, i tell them up front that i dont split the ace pot and i will not accept half if my partner hits the ace pot. you are quite right that i would not deserve half if we were partnered up and you hit an ace, mostly because it was your ace not mine.

                    Keys, I am a very fun person to be partnered with. the ace pot doesnt have anything to do with how fun i can be as a partner. we have our doubles today so LETS GO ACEPOT!!!! WHOOOOHOOOO!

                    i would say that it would be very interesting to be partnered up with Sam, i know that we have had some disagreements here on the forum but i would like to see how we get along in person.

                    • I am sure we would get along fine in person. I would still be uber pissed off if you were my doubles' partner (you know... partner as in part of the team) and you got an ace and didn't split it with me. Honestly, I would probably walk off at that point and either have our team disqualified or let you finish the round in your individual sport.

                      • I don't think splitting an ace pot is a written rule. It is however widely assumed and a nice gesture, but not a rule. If you expect half of your partners ace, you'd better have had a pre-nupt! I only wish I would get another ace to have the opportunity to split it!
                        A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at work!

                          I agree. I will always split an ACE pot with my partner even if there isn't an agreement before hand. I've given my partner $90 before and received $100 from my partner before. What goes around, comes around.

                          • Down here, it is a fairly widely-respected unwritten rule.

                            Maybe we are just kinder down here. And smarter. And better looking.

                              Better then that - take super aggressive shots at aces and put the pressure on your partner to get all of the birdies (it is, after all, an individual sport). Best case scenario - you get an ace as well and your partner has to split the pot anyway.
