Sure, if there are enough people ahead of you that playing through isn't feasible 4 hours is reasonable. However, I've yet to not have people let me play through if they don't have someone right in front of them. Most people are considerate enough to take the extra 5 minutes to let you hit your first and second shots. Shoot, most times it takes longer than that for them to even tee off the next hole.

However, I do have the common decency to recognize that people are playing faster than me. 

You are not playing slowly. 

A four hour round on a normal course is good speed.

 Not if he's playing alone it isn't.  It is an acceptable speed for a fourball.  It's only acceptable for a single if he's stuck following several full groups.

Cousrses disagree with you, at least here. Every person is entitled to 2 hours per 9, 205 on the back 9 at my home course, single, double, or foursome. Fivesomes are barred, unless the course is extremely empty, they they will make exemptions, especially if its a fivesome of tourists. But if the club is busy, no way, no how. And you cannot sign up a 5some on the online sign up board.

Taking as much time playing solo as is allotted for a full foursome wouldn't be considered fast by anyone. Slow, definitely. Acceptable per rules, yes.

Which, of course, was the point I was making. d2_doh.gif
