Very few of our slow players are going to recognize themselves in the USGA ads. Virtually all slow pokes are unaware of their disability. The USGA is flushing a lot of money down the drain on this campaign.
I would like to see the USGA make some grants to busy public courses to allow experiments in speeding up play. Subsidize all the methods (knowledgeable starters, true 10 minute splits, empowered rangers, "tee it forward", pace clocks, short rough, directional signs, etc...). Come up with a proven formula to create the proper field to grow a 4 hour or less round.
Prove to public courses that with the right techinques, they can create 4 hours rounds AND make more money.
