So WTF is his problem? He can do this by himself? Why not all the time? And a HUUUUGE "STFU" to all the slow players everywhere saying they need the extra time to play better.
I played golf in St Andrews last week with a couple guys who are on the R&A Rule Committee. They said that the re-write is expected to be substantial. The primary goals are to simplify the rules and speed play. They only two items that both of them felt fairly certain to be included were allowing the player to leave the flagstick in when playing a stroke on the green without penalty and allowing the player to drop on the fairway (to avoid divot holes, loose impediments that might cause the ball move if removed and other irregularities). Many other items are being considered but without much consensus yet.
The speed play goal strikes me as a bit hypocritical since the rest of the world seems to be heading towards the US handicap posting model which is one of the greatest causes of slow play.
It's annoying to many of us, but golf needs to be careful about alienating fans. Part of what makes an event fun is fan participation, so if someone pays the entrance fee, eats and drinks all day there, supporting the event vendors, I'll tolerate their stupid attempts to get attention.
