I think one of the things impacting scoring now as well is the online app v card thing. In the past you and your playing partners would always score on the tee of the next hole. You'd see whoever was marking your card, pull it out, and write something down so you knew that they were scoring. And if they didn't, you'd be clued into the fact they were probably gonna make a mistake. Now, its all so individualistic and online app supported that the incorrect score frequency has gone up, not down as everyone was expecting it to years ago. A lot of members at my club really struggle with it. And some are just so self focussed they dont have a clue anyway. "What'd you have there mate ?" "Errr.....albatross." "Oh yeah."That was it, grades didn't matter, everyone just got on with it, well mostly everyone. Slow players were generally avoided. As were the inevitable cheats who always try to sneak a couple of shots around on their unsuspecting scorer. They'd try and make a 7 a 6 etc etc hoping everyone missed the duffed chip.
