And that is the most important part...
Frankly in the last year I've learned to care way less about how everyone else is doing and just try to play my best.
How many times have we all fallen into this trap... oh man there is some guy on my card who is lighting me up... so I make some really stupid "aggressive" plays to try to catch up... three more bogies and I drop three cards because I was trying to play someone else's round and ignoring my own.
Barry Shultz's advise... practice until your average is better then everyone else's best... I'm not there yet so I don't expect to win... Sure there are those that need the ego massage of winning or "competeing" (didn't we all pay the same entry?)... but they are baggers and if you understand the origin of the term sandbagger you will see that really they are just slowing themselves down. Divisions are good because it helps us to play with people who are about equal to us... But if you want to win stop worrying about who is and who is not playing in your division and try to throw fewer shots on the golf course!
