since you hit nearly every ball perfect, and there are just two of you, then I'd imagine you would have a pretty quick pace. But I don't think it is really fair to say someone playing at the generally accepted pace is a part of the problem
OK, that explains it. I have not seen it posted or rewatched the video, and I tuned in after they had already started going at it.
Regardless, I agree with BC. It has an affect, see my previous post. Also, what does Duval say about why the best American players, the best players in the world on paper, rank, and results make less putts and good golf shots than their competition in the Ryder cup? Over 20 years?
Why do we always end up comparing apples and oranges? A 2-some in a cart early on a weekday morning with handicap indexes around 1.0 or 2.0 compared to a foursome of golfers with an average index of 10.0 walking (or maybe carting) on a weekend morning. I am sorry, "efficient playing" does not explain the difference.
