For sure this is true, Scott. If you play with someone who is AS GOOD as you, you might push each other and pick things up but if one player is playing with a better player, the better player acts as a catalyst and pulls the weaker player along.
Playing with your peers might accomplish the same thing in the long run but it is a much longer run.
That this is even an argument is silly. Jordan, if you think playing with Climo will not make you a better player, I have to scratch my head and wonder why someone as smart as you doesn't get such a simple and true statement. That you try and make a caricature out of it is kind of silly, though. No one said that he is some sort of magic elixir that will make you a better player overnight.
That said, I returned to Milo yesterday for the first time since the Fling. I stepped up to normal hole 16 and pulled out my Roc. I rolled it and it went left of the big tree in the middle of the fairway. Bounced over the hole in the ground with the ferns surrounding it and kept rolling. Made a right turn and sat me down between the two pin positions. I pulled out the XD and sunk the putt for a deuce - marking the first time I have ever birdied that hole in the deep position. Watching Ken Climo do that and working on that shot elsewhere definitely improved my game - if only for that one hole on that one round.
Seriously... why is this simple concept so hard for you baggers to understand this? Is it that you WISH to remain mediocre? Have fun with that. When those around you continue to improve because they play with better players and you are still shooting sub-900 rated rounds and continuously losing as your peers get better, please try to remember this conversation.
