    Just curious to ask, what would you rather hear your playing partners say to you, great shot or great swing? As we all know, they don't necessarily go hand in hand.

What I myself like to hear is how you have been and other social things. And I dont mind giving people compliments on their swing especially when they have been telling you of all the hard work they have been doing on it.
    My preference is for the "nice par" when you have been up and down. Or nice birdie, when you have gone and stuck one close to the flag with your Vokey wedge.
    I find we often give compliments on what we can find at that moment and its often on a shot that wasnt that complimentary, if that makes sense. And not trying to be a Debbie Downer here, I just think it would be awesome if we searched deeper on the course for conversation or.....
