Alright so I played in a charity golf scramble yesterday and I want to hear others opinions on the long drive subject matter.
Who cares what the prize is, we all want to win the long drive contest. Myself included. I absolutely pelted my drive on the long drive hole yesterday and drive up to find I’m about 5 yards short of the sign (GPS said my drive was about 295 from the tee). Dang. That guy must’ve been a beast....
Fast forward to the post-event and they announce the guy who won and hes clearly an older guy. He laughs as someone shouts from his group “he played from the senior tees!” There was some mumbling from the rest of the players as he got his prize (whatever it was). Checked the scorecard and the senior tees are about 40 yards in front of the regular tees for that particular hole!
So my question to THP, should long drive contests be played from the same tee no matter your age? Does this bother anyone else? Should events make it more clear that long drive holes must be played from XYZ tees or am I totally wrong and its completely fair for seniors to play the long drive from their own tee? Or do I need to just get over it?
