I don't participate in competitive golf anymore for a number of reasons. 1) they tee off too early in the morning and I need my sleep; 2) Hitting drivers + LW on 5000 yd courses feels just weird; 3) lost interest in it.
My casual playing partner is a 71 year old woman and we play from the men's tees most of the time unless they're over 6000 yds.Then we'll move up to the senior tees. She hits a 220 yd drive and a 200 yd 3W. My problem this year is that I didn't practice ... hardly at all.
Yeah, you were being a d-bag imo. The foursome in front of the two-some was the problem and even then it probably wasn't even a problem unless that group was on pace to finish in >4 hours.
Playing through is a courtesy, not a rule. Just because you want to get done quicker doesn't mean you can harass other groups.
