    • 5-1-4-2 My home course is very wide open not only with several holes running alongside each other, but a few holes have mounds so you can't see part of the landing area in the fairway. Thankfully I've never seen anyone injured, but there's been some close calls.
    • Even though everyone knows that I’m militant about pace of play, I think 3 minutes is too short.  I’d go back to 5 minutes.
    • I will usually hit a few clubs for about 10 to 15 minutes just to get the feel of hitting the ball (sometimes it only takes about 5 minutes). I like to hit a short iron and long iron. I don't usually hit driver.  Putt for 10 minutes and go.
    • For casual rounds (typically played alone)... I'm usually slamming the trunk, stepping on to the first tee, taking one or two swings at nothing with my driver to loosen up and then heading out.  Unless I happen to get there early or something, in which case I'll hit a few wedges at the range.   For rounds where I'm playing for something... I'll show up 20 minutes early to hit a few balls.  In that case... it'll be a few 9 irons, a few 6 irons and if I have time, a few drivers.  If I still have 5 minutes or so, I like to hit a couple 10 footers on the practice green. For competitive, tournament rounds (pre-COVID)... I show up 90 minutes early.  I like to get my pockets set up (tees, ball marker and club cleaning tool in my right pocket, sunscreen chapstick in my left pocket and my ball mark repair tool in my back, right pocket). I'll typically hit balls on the range for 30-45 minutes, working from wedges up to my driver.  I'll then take a few minutes to relax in the shade (or in the clubhouse).  I'll head back out and putt for 20 minutes, starting with 10 footers to get the pace right and then moving to 6 footers to get some confidence.  If there is a chipping area, I like to spend about 10 minutes there before heading to the staging area and socializing for 5-10 minutes before we head out.  With COVID... I try to keep it as close to the same routine as possible... just shorter.  We're only supposed to show up 30 minutes prior to tee time which really condenses things.  I hit balls for 15 minutes, putt for 5-10 minutes and then head off to the first tee.

    • 2, 2, 3, 1 or 2.     A poorly positioned beverage cart can sometimes be an issue, especially for long hitters.
