My friend and I created a prop bet.. instead of playing skins each round, we decided to bet $50 over a summer, with a minimum of 3 18-hole rounds completed. Whomever had the most skins at the end of the summer, won the $50. No further terms.
2 rounds through the summer, "Jack" is winning by 6 skins. "John" plays golf with another group towards the end of the summer and plays historically bad. He says he played so bad that he doesn't even want to think about golf or play anymore this year.
Jack asks John to play the final 3rd round to complete the bet, but John doesn't want to play because he's too frustrated with the game and John offers to continue the bet the following summer.
Jack is upset with John's decision. Jack doesn't think he did anything wrong.
Thoughts? Is anyone in the wrong here? Is John copping out on the bet?
Like most people who gamble and lose John obviously feels like he got taken advantage of and that you knew he had no chance blah blah blah. I would just tell John you will let him out for 25 (so his cheapskate mind can feel like he got a full 50% off).
After he gives you the 25 never bet with him again, never buy him a drink, never give him good sports pick etc etc etc. If he doesn't want to pay explain to him how he essentially freerolled you. If he still doesn't pay, that's up to you. Also tell him to just get better instead of being lazy.

Seriously if you can afford to play golf on a semi-regular basis you can afford to pay off a $50 bet. My fantasy football commish still owes me $50 from last season that I never bothered to collect. I should have him ship it to Jack.
