I couldn't imagine having to play a round of golf with a guy going through all that before every swing.
If ONLY there were a rule governing the pace of play, then perhaps something could be done. But Finchem is just a powerless victim here, as he has no ability to assign, I dunno, penalty shots on people who fall off the clock. If only!
But in all seriousness, I don't have a problem with guys taking some time to discuss a shot. I get it: these are very, very difficult shots and there is a lot to consider. But when they then take 7 or 8 practice swings and then back off the ball twice, it's too much. Pick your shot, grab a club, and hit the damn ball.
