If the putting analogy were good, there wouldn't be a different set of tees.

I once played with a woman in my foursome that played from the white tees, like the three men. She won. If you can do the job, you get the creds. If you can't, it's not always because mommy and daddy put pink ribbons in your hair. Some people win, some lose and it just isn't always fair.
