After they went off and were out of range(finally), one of the gentlemen in our little group walked back to the blues and did the exact same thing- but even more of a STOP at the top, then resume the swing. He was longer off the tee than the others, but not by much. Again, painful to watch and I usually do not watch other swings so as not to put any weird ideas in my head. But this was mesmerizing and I couldn't look away. It obviously screwed me up, because I had one of the worst driving days in recent memory.
No groups behind us for a couple of holes until it slowed a bit, and when I looked back at the tee from a hole we were playing at least 2 of THOSE guys did the same thing!
It can't POSSIBLY help with timing or rhythm, can it? At least it did nothing for those guys distance OR accuracy.
