I never said it interfered with my round, either. But alas, we jump to extreme analogies.
My point was that if you're taking 120+ strokes...you shouldn't even be worried with what you're shooting and have no problem picking up when you've obviously used up a bit of time on a particular hole. Playing an easier course would make the game more enjoyable for said golfer and also allow them to improve without people beating down their backs for an entire round. I don't have any delusions about people not being ALLOWED to play..but I would like for everyone who picks up golf to be able to enjoy it and speaking from my own personality..it wouldn't be fun if I were struggling and I felt like someone was also constantly watching.
If you shoot 120+ I'm willing to bet 100% of the time wasted is looking for lost balls in the woods, native grass ect. When I was starting out I bought the cheapest balls I could find, it was like $0.33 a ball. If I hit it more than a few feet into the woods, I wouldn't even bother looking for it. I would just drop where it went in and continue to play. If the majority of people did this, there wouldn't be any slow play issues.
Either way, this tread isn't going to solve the slow play issue. In fact courses need those players because they are new to the game and that's what keeps the revenue flowing for everyone in the golf biz. I'm lucky, my work schedule allows me to be at the course by 9AM on any given day of the week and out of there by 1pm or sooner 99% of the time. There's nothing like playing golf at 9AM on a Tuesday, there's hardly anyone at the course!!!
