Feel free to think of me as a snob. I think my points are very fair, and my golf knowledge is more reliable than anyone else posting here. Since the fact that I'm a 0L seems relevant to people here, I have one question for OP: When it comes to golf, would you rather take advice from a Golf 0L or a Golf Partner?
edit: for own RC fail.
. You're such a huge douche that it seems more plausible to you that the two people who called you out on a being a douche are in fact one person rather than two people, independently noting your snobbery? That's like meta-douche.
Also, I'd just like to reiterate this point somebody made:

Again 0L, but I grew up going to 'golf school' every summer, and have played regularly literally since i was able to stand on my own.
I can only agree with thie final point to a certain extent. As I said earlier, know your limits, and know that you are slowing people down.
A few months ago I was playing Spanish Bay with my brother (consistently shoots in the 80s) and my dad (scratch), and we got paired with a guy who was playing by himself. Okay...the situation is much different because we didn't know the guy, much less work with him, and we were there on vacation, and paying as much for a round of golf as I expect to make in a week at my first legal job. That being said, the guy was horrible. SB is a brutal track, and I think I shot 110, but this dude didn't break 275, and he searched for balls, putted out every hole, and caused it to take us 6 HOURS to play a round of golf. We weren't happy to give him pointers, we wanted to push his cart off one of the bluffs to the sharks.
