are you asking, with or against?

With: I prefer to watch and hopefully pick up tips from a short game expert. If you play with those who drives it much longer, then we dont hit the green from the same area. So as a flight mate, we dont have much to chat about the shots we have to hit. He hit 9i, I hit a hybrid. Different conversations. Looking out for balls is also easier with someone who drives around your ball.

Against: a long range bomber. It's more fun to beat somebody who drives longer than me. It's like david vs goliath Razz

I can show you how I drive it long, from your behind, on Sunday... What a Face

For me... I like to see someone who can drive AND arrive... helps me appreciate the game better rather than focusing on only one aspect of the game Very Happy

To be precise, Asahi like playing with Alvin coz he is long, but watch out when Alvin clenches his nuts between his cheeks, that's when he likes to come from behind!!!! geek

He just said feels saltish, so you know which cheeks already lor... unless of course he's the only chipmunk in the world with a tongue between his butt cheeks, then salt isn't all he's going to taste! ROFL

I really fear 100% straight hitting players. If your 2nd shot ain't going straight at the pin, I'm still in with a chance Smile

Playing either one is stressful.... scratch

But I guess, it's easier to manage a long driver than a sharp shooter! On Green

playing against or playing with?

sharp shooters really f**ks with ur mind...thinking you have a good chance with only 100m out, he will put one 6 feet from the hole from 140m out...and then watch u shank ur 'easy' shot into the water or bunker.

but long bomber with decent short game cab be more deadly than a short hitter with a sharp game...just depends on whether the long bomber is on sync with his short game that day. A short hitter is always a short hitter, he cannot have good long driving days....

I prefer to play with the person with a sharp short game, because I think having a sharp short game is something everyone can aspire to have. being able to bomb it for monster distance requires some god-given ability besides the training.

either one is inspiring. But prefer a sharp short hitter. Why cause bomber are like virus. Some time it will screw your game cause you will also try to bomb it and result in hay wire direction and a bad game. with a sharp short game, you don't have the power syndrome virus, so you can stick to you own rythm and game and try to be as sharp (not hard hitting) as your partner.

Very Happy

since i cant drive far and my short game sux....i guess playing with both type of players are equally inspiring as well as demoralising.....

for golfer who i like to play with, they are inspiring....some time not really base on their skill...keke

I second that; training in the right techniques will improve distance considerably. Some just have the talent to figure out the techniques faster, while others will achieve it with the right training.

I am glad I paid attention during physics and math lessons in school; they come in real handy when I am trying to hit it as far as I can.
