Apart from more intensive training and skill, the different between social vs professional golfers are;
1) Audiences all look for the ball while social golfer either your flight mates or caddy....so easier for us to lost ball.
2) Professional can take all their time to do their stroke/putt, social cannot, the flight behind shot Fore.

What you guys think?

1) Social golfers also have other golfers to help them point where
their balls went, if they saw. It is a social thing to do for other
golfers.

2) Not true that the pros can take their time to hit their shots. Remember Padraig
Harrington who was penalized a stroke for taking too long to hit his shot. I think
there is a time frame given for each shot.

You are right bro. All incomes in Singapore are taxable. Report the Buayas to IRAS.

Professionals = 1 shot means 1 point down. Do or die.
Social = You can still ask for a Mulligan Shot from your pals on a Par 3 if you teed-off like you're gonna pee in your pants when you start on your backswing.

Hahahaha. This thread so cute!

Hiaz....social golfers out for a laugh during games (unless $3 Vegas) while pro golfers out to eke out a living or career. That's the difference.

i think Asahi is in a good position to explain this one. he saw a very young professional whom we were working with and the boy is only 16.

if we have another batch of brave warriors i will be most happy to set up a game around the time of Handa in Singapore.

Only 16 and very raw so strokes to be negotiated hor...The Broker

Needless to say, he will find out the difference between professional and social very quickly.
