Ok. Need some quick work advice. I’m headed to Austin next week for some meetings on a major pursuit. There’s a golf tournament Monday, but I was going Monday and will be there after for meetings.

One of our partners is looking for a 4th golfer. They guy leading this pursuit asked if I’d be able to come in early and play. It would be a good chance to mingle and meet the client. HOWEVER:

1. I don’t golf. My long drive is about two feet. I can put. But that’s about it.
2. I’d be on a team with people I don’t know.
3. I’d have to move my travel plans to Sunday. There’s no late afternoon direct flights. I’d have to leave at either 1:00 pm or 8:00 pm. I’m already overwhelmed w/ how much I have going and Sunday was going to be a cleaning day / Xmas decorating.
4. They don’t have clubs you can rent, but it’s a first come first serve on 15 sets.
5. Last time I tried golfing, it was 2015 and I ended up just sitting in the golf cart and putting. And it was with people I knew.

I don’t want to feel like I’m not a team player / it’s a good opportunity. But I really don’t want to. So what would you do in this situation?
