I have a strange question: Does playing a round alone suck? Anyone have any thoughts on the idea? I play alone frequently and I enjoy it. In fact, I used to play alone more than with people and it used to bother me when I was paired with other groups, but I've reached a point where I enjoy being paired with strangers and playing a round with them. Maybe I've just been lucky and been paired with nice people. If I'm playing alone and the course isn't crowded I'll play two balls, try different things and work on certain parts of my game. The only downside I have found to playing alone is I sometimes lose focus and start screwing around.
