Shot a 41 in my match play League. Opponent was giving me 3 strokes. I won the match 5 to 4.
Good: Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot. Hit some very good approach shots. I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet. Alas, i made none.
Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.
This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.
I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.
If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball.
Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
Well, what if a feel for you produces a result for another that doesn't work at all?
That is the problem of using feels in trying to describe what is going on. I am not you, you are not me, and we are not Mickey Wright.
Each golfer needs to find their own feel for what might produce the same movement.
