    On your first practice swing on #1 and the head of your 3 wood goes flying 10 yards down the fairway (and you don't have driver cause the shaft broke the week before) leaving you with hybrid off the tee...

    Seriously.... people need to learn how to pick up after 8 or 10 swings and move on to the next hole. My home course is a difficult public course. I see beginners show up and decide that they are going to get their money's worth that day. They will take every shot....even it it means 150 swings.




    More stableford. If the US golfer could change mindsets from medal play to stableford, the pace of play would increase dramatically. People want to finish the game they are playing, and they want to play by the rules generally. If people played stableford, and they can't get a bogey, they can pick up or just go and chip/putt with their buddy and move things along.




    Totally a culture thing that needs to change. Even if it's just a case of "don't keep score" and people take their tee shots, take one or 2 more, then pick up and putt out on the green




    Wait so you are saying as soon as you're lying 3 pick up? That is a bit autocratic.

    I just mean they hit their drive, and if they're just hacking away at it in the fairway/rough, just pick it up and drop around the green. I see too many people taking 10 or 12 swipes at the ball and adding 10 minutes per hole

    These folks are entitled to their 10 swipes, but letting groups through is the answer. I think the word is finally starting to be heard even by casual players.

    True, letting people play through is key. No matter what, you're certainly entitled to as many shots as it takes to get the ball in the whole if that's how you want to play. Whenever I'm teaching someone new I'll have them hit drive, then maybe one or two more, then just pick up and putt out on or around the green. It keeps them from getting too bogged down in "I can't even hit the ball!!" and keeps it more fun

    Ha!! was going to post same thing about no carts, was told it was not cost effective, they were 45 minutes behind, it took 25 minute to play hole and then waited on number 2 tee box for half hour, we finally went back to club house and got rain check

    Who said slow play is ruining golf??

    Now, I'm not trying be overly harsh on the youngsters. I like young uns, and have two of them. It's just with the high school players...there is no excuse. They need a game clock for those matches. The way the young kids learn from watching the PGA Tour players is just plain detrimental to the game.

    We got similar to that a couple years ago. “High school tryouts are out there. But the coach is out too make it sure they’re not holding things up”, the lady says. Yeah right, coach was in his own group playing and not paying a bit of attention to the two groups behind him (and ahead of us) who were doing more jacking around than playing.

    When your paired with 2 guys and one of them doesn't even have a golf bag instead he is using a suitcase. Then hits his tee shot and hits it about 150 yards and hits a guy in the chest coming up the adjacent fairway.

    You know it's going to be a long day when you have two lost balls on the first hole, both of which cratered somewhere in the fairway.

    This actually happened to me, but in my own defense it was my first round of golf after decades away from the game.
