    What is it about 4 ball golf

    I played in a Greensome trophy comp today. It was very noticeable that there were large gaps in the field and it is often the same when we have a 4BBB comp on a Saturday.

    What is that makes players not want to play at all rather than play 4 ball?

    Can't answer that, I really enjoy it and would have been one of the people out there playing if I had been a member.

    I wouldn't play greensomes as I don't play any alternate shot format unless absolutely necessary as I simply don't enjoy it. I can't understand why there wouldn't be such a take up on BB as you play your own ball throughout and have a chance to post a score on every hole.

    If it was greensomes all day I'm not surprised it was empty, rather play stableford

    I canít see why people wouldnít want to play 4BBB. Other than not having a card in your hand itís a normal game for me.

    Greensomes and Foursomes are fine a couple times a year but not my preferred choice.

    The way I look at it is if it isnít a qualifier, Iím not getting out of bed.

    We only play one BB a year. Itís a major, which was played last week. Prime time slots were empty.

    i think the seniors play 4bbb and other team based games in the week, but weekend play is for proper golf.
