    Its funny at the same time as being something that can happen.

    How about a match that both teams were ready to play but suddenly a storm blows in, hail and 60mph gusts. One team is happy to play on despite being soaked to the skin and the other wants to re-arrange. Do they win the match or is it postponed?

    I remember once being the only one of 4 who was happy to carry on, we had to come back and play the match another day in the end.

    Re: Matchplay and the weather

    So an update on this.

    They ended up playing last night, it was 2 v 1 as one of my mates now couldn't make it so I was asked to go along and caddy for my mate, I turned up when they were on the 3rd hole.

    The opponents decided that although the lowest handicapper wasn't there they would still take the shots off him, not sure if that's right or not but I would have thought it would be the lowest playing.

    Anyway in the end my mate on his own shoots 9 under handicap and wins 3&1 so I guess they probably wish they had played in the wind as he as playing rubbish last week.

    Sound like a couple of muppets you were playing against. Would have no time for those shenanigans

    They were right about calculating shots off the absent lowest hcp player

    Re: Matchplay and the weather

    It's one thing to bail because of the weather, but another thing completely to then play 2v1 because one of the "good guys" couldn't make it when the other team decided they would grace the course with their presence.

    I would be absolutely fuming and I'm glad they lost.

    I'm putting it down to my caddying skills, I'm sure all the pro's respond well to "yea whatever, just hit it" and "sorry I wasn't watching"

    You clearly made the difference. Are you free next Saturday? I can only offer 10% of any winnings but I will stand you at hot chocolate in the clubhouse.
