don't bogart the scorecard

bums me out when the card isn't passed with at least each player keeping score. just a detail of etiquette that I admire about the game.

Does etiquette demand the card being passed, some people enjoy keeping score, others hate it?

I find my game takes a nosedive when I keep score in leagues and tournaments.  Casual rounds don't affect it much.

The 'Curse of the Card' :o is reduced when one keeps score the entire round. 
When a cardmate volunteers to keep score the entire round...they have my blessing.

It is every players burden and privilege and should be given due respect. I agree with Danger

I like it the USDGC style where every player keeps score for all the players and then compare them at the end to make sure they match up.  That way everyone has the same responsibility with the cards.

I like it when a PDGA Tournament official follows me around and keeps score for me and my crew with a paper card and a banner on a pole....totally cool.
