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.
It's all in the first minute of the posted video. Chamblee says "leadership" wins matches, and Duvall says "it boils down to making putts and executing good golf shots." Heck, it's the title of the video on the article.
You completely misread what he said. Although he is slightly mistaken in that his scenario doesn't quite apply to the OP, he is talking about people who are trying to go faster than all of the many groups in front of them. He's talking about that guy who's all stressed out on the freeway because he needs to be there NOW and he keeps changing lanes back and forth and back and forth and yet he's not moving any faster than the rest of us. But unlike commuting, golf is supposed to be a fun and leisurely activity, so he's simply saying that if you find yourself in a golf traffic jam, relax and remember why you are out there in the first place. (Presumably) because you enjoy the game and likely the company you are with.
