Hmmm I guess I really misread it

I'm not sure of all the number crunching, but pace of play comes down to common sense and golf etiquette. If you have 3 players that have no common sense you still get a 5/6 hour round.

Foursomes in carts have nothing to do with it.

Slow play, that's it.

I played in a 2 person team scramble this spring.  36 total 2 man teams(a foursome at each hole) each starting on a different hole. Best ball.  1 putt rule.

The round took 5 1/2 excruciating hours.

We were waiting by the 3rd hole.  There was a group of four about 3 groups in front of us that were the cause of the backup.  Should the marshals have hurried them along?  Yep.  Did they?  Nope.

    • Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.
    • What I’ve read is that cnn requires vaccination if you come into the office and they weren’t, so I guess this is the right thing to do.  We are faced with a very difficult situation and we need everyone to pitch in.  Flying on an airplane, going to a crowded nightclub or concert or many of the things we do is not a right, it’s a privilege based on a private company offering up something.  They have the right to request saftey for their employees and other customers.    Vaccine has been given to millions of people without incident, just go if you haven’t already.

    • Calkins: Bryson DeChambeau is unvaccinated, unrepentant — and delusional - Memphis Local, Sports, Business & Food News | Daily Memphian Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy?  Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? That’s his schtick, isn’t it? He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.”  He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.” Turns out that’s bunk. DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?
