I don't mind too much. I ended up making it a habit just to be the first one tee on all Par 3's and call the yardage out to the group when I am playing with friends. If I am playing with folks I don't regularly golf with, then I just let them ask and supply them with the information. It doesget annoying when someone is on the other side of the fairway, and waits for you to hit your shot, then go over to theirs and give them yardage. Really slows things down, and I honestly will say something at that point.
I did have one buddy, who is bound and determined to argue about everything under the sun. Doesn't matter what it is, not just golf, although especially annoying on the golf course, I say it's black, he says it's white, well you get the idea. Anyways he would ALWAYS ask me for yardages, most of the time it didn't even matter cause he is about a 25 cap and wasn't going to hit the shot anyways. After I gave him the distance he would say something to the effect of "Are you sure thats 175? Looks more like 190." Drove me absolutely nuts, like seriously man, you ask me to spot you a yardage off of my GPS, and then you are going to stand there and argue with me about it? Needless to say when some of the refurbed Upro's went on sale for $99 last summer, I made sure he got one. Now instead of arguing with me about the reading my GPS is giving him, he calls me over to double check my GPS against his.....I just can't win with this guy.
