    A year ago I went out after a work-class mandatory thing. Plan was to play 6-9 holes but I was -1 after 9 so figured I'd keep going. After eagle on 16 and par last 2 hole finished at -3 69... I was almost running to finish due to darkness and joined up w a 2some last 2 holes.

    Never think I rush, but give me an empty course & a 2 hour round and I love it. Plenty of other things to do (including another 18).

    They times ive been in a rush to get off the course, i just end up getting frustrated with myself while thinking "If im rushing, why'd I even come out in the first place.

    I just say to **** with all else once ive tee'd off. Wife now knows it will take an act of god or someone in the hospital to get me off the course.

    I've skipped after round drinks, I dont think thats a biggie.

    Is your boy dating a smoke show? 'Sound bath yoga' sounds like something I used to do before I was married. Now I just tell the wife I'll meet her after her silly crap for drinks, heh.

    Darkness, rushing to work, weather, walk the dog, date night.....just to name a few. I squeeze golf in whenever I can so there's many times when I'm trying to play quick to get my 18 holes in.

    I like your style...! "Catch you on the rebound for a wine spritzer" is about right.

    Harding Park in san francisco has incredibly tiered pricing. cheap for extreme locals. expensive if you live very far away. anyway, i have no problem with that. i think most muni courses should do this.

    but they have cheap tourist prices very late in the day (like 3 hours before sunset). so to play the whole course you have to play fast and play into dark (18th is best hole by far too, i assume it's actually the 18th. it was when we played)..........

    so played very very fast and i played probably the best i ever have (causation? relaxed and just hit ball?)............. and then had a 10 on the 18th hole after a nice drive in the dark.......... anyway, awesome hole.......daly and tiger had monumental playoff on this hole. shocking the lines off the tee that they played.

    Was she hot and was there any benefits? The answer of this should dictate the level of roasting.

    So the wife made him rush the group and he didn't say no...... hahahaha single life wins again

    What if the hole you skipped was a better hole then the 18th hole... He shoulda took his own cart and dipped out when he had to and not disturb the group

    Should've mentioned it was a scramble....yes, he was rewarded for going, however, His philosophy with woman is "what am I supposed to say, no?........ Translates into probably not

    I can't remember a particular time, but I'm sure I have. Probably to do with either weather or darkness.

    Of course. Although, these days it's nearly impossible because you're likely just gonna rush for 30 seconds & then wait for the slow play ahead.

    Irons: Why not?

    Wedges: The bouncy ones or was that the grindy kind; can't quite remember.

    Putter: When needed

    Golf ball: Duh,...can't play without one, lol. 🙄

    NOW LET'S GO PLAY SOME GOLF!

    Not really a "pace of play" issue, but rather, playing ahead and skipping holes because someone in your group has an important meeting that turns out to be "sound bath yoga" with the wife...

    There's a coyote that lives off of the 7th hole where I play (a course set in a wildlife area along the river), and there are deer, turkeys, and lots of waterfowl around the course. The coyote avoids players and looks mangey and probably rabid, but he can be seen roaming the area looking for something to pounce on. Saw him hunt and then run down a squirrel - pretty spectacular... Also missed a green to the left and when I went down to get my ball it was situated a few feet away from an enormous hawk that was feasting on something in its talons. As I approached, it eyed me warily, then flew off with its prize in its claws. Also quite a sight!

    But yoga can wait 15 minutes.

    On a work trip and was scheduled to be running a meeting (remotely). Had about 15 minutes to get through 17 and 18 and get to my bag in the clubhouse with my computer. Got finished and meeting started on time

    Yep. For all the above reasons; darkness, weather, etc. Most recently was playing with my wife’s brother-in-law and we had to fly through the last few holes so he could get to his own birthday party with his family. I had no problem with it.

    ”soundbath Yoga” with his hot wife is probably a good reason. Lol

    Too bad it affected your rounds too, just confirm is was “worth the rush” with some explicit details next time you see him.

    Hah! Hardly worth disturbing a round of golf. There comes a point in a relationship when one person doesn’t always have to do what the other wants...

    I’ve had many a reasons to leave a golf course. Being married with 4 kids and older ages inlaws to boot, If I have to leave then so be it BUT that only pertains to when I’m playing by myself or out and grouped with some random people. The case would be different if I was playing a course that I planned on playing with some buddies then unless somebody is dying, I wouldn’t leave. That buddy of yours did t plan well or he just took up the game because a typical round is not 4.5 hours when telling your wife. You add an hour for warm ups, 5 hours for the round just in case and of course and 1 to eat and drink after the round. Now that’s just the round its self. Factor in the drive time and there ya go. If you tell your significant other that you are gone for at least 6 hours, then you didn’t plan right.

    When a buddy of mine had to leave a round early, I was pissed to say the leastz

    I have rushed in to beat the weather many times. The one time I left before we finished, was the day I signed the papers for buying my house. I told my partners what time I needed to leave by, and I drove myself and had my own cart so when the time came for me to leave, I finished the hole, shook hands and left.

    I've played with people who rushed as fast as they could so they could get in their cars and rush from red light to red light so they could get home as fast as they could to sit on the sofa and eat potato chips while staring at the TV.

    Darkness, weather, to squeeze in another nine, and to get married later in day. Only times I can remember rushing to get done.

    Recently hurried to finish as I could barely feel my fingers as it was below 30* with a 20-30 mph wind. Started out warmer but got progressively colder to the point I had some frostbite in my fingers. I'll play in any weather typically but that was really cold. And on top of it I played awful too.

    Guy gets up super early one sunday morning and doesn't want to disturb his wife so he slides out of bed, gets dressed, and heads into the garage to put his sticks in the car to go play. But he opens the garage and it's howling wind, ice, sleet, snow, and he decides, forget it...gonna spend the morning in bed with his wife! So, he slides gently under the covers and caresses his wife's arm and says how horrible the weather is out there...an in a sleepy voice the wife says, "can you believe it? My husband is out playing golf in that!!"
