In my limited experience the mix of carts and walkers is irrelevant. It's what the people do when they're not getting to their ball: talking a lot, checking their phones, taking a lot of time to select a club, taking a lot of practice swings, etc.
Tuesday evening I played (the back) 9. I caught up with a twosome who were behind a threesome. After playing 17, the twosome went back over to 11 and I played 18. After my drive, I was about 145 yds from the green and had to wait for the threesome to finish putting. After they putted out, they took off their hats and shook hands and (I shit you not) stood on the green bullshitting. Right before I yelled "ay!" one of them looked up, saw me, and they all scampered (only word to describe how they moved) off the green.
I wanted nothing more than to put my next shot right where they had been standing. I had the distance but pushed the shot right of the green.
I'm confused @DeadMan, In the following post you're making the argument that clocks are poorly implemented because groups that are on or ahead of pace but have a gap in front are not pushed.
Then in the next post you say the group was actually off pace and caused your group to finish off pace.
Did they just really tank the holes after the last display clock or something?
Thanks, then I guess the question is, why do the manufactures vary toe hang and sweet spot placement. I can't imagine it's accidental. Are they just feeding the myth rather than trying to educate the public?
Your proper place on the course is directly behind the group in front of you, not ahead of the group behind you. They were actually holding us up, and caused us to finish in over 4:30, despite the fact that we were below that pace until the last 3-4 holes. Ranger said he wouldn't do anything. It was frustrating, because I could see what was happening, and he wouldn't do anything because of the clocks. I'd imagine it messed up the pace of play for the rest of the day, too.
