The marshall told us that they booked those spots for their own competition ,i think the club should allocate them to the last spot on the day.
Dude, no offense, but it's really not that hard to pass these three groups after you realize how slow it is. I can guarantee you it was wide the F open beyond that first four ball after about an hour of your waiting.
When you finish the 18th hole, you just go back to the holes you skipped. I do this all the time at my home course, and none of the marshals care. If any marshals question you, it's easy to explain the situation to them. I've never had one not understand.
There you go, I just saved you three hours of your life. Come on, man. Seriously. 7.5 hours? You are insane for not passing them. Just find the next open hole and enjoy yourself.
