The way I read it, the 2some was at least a shot behind every hole if they were waiting for the group ahead of them to get on the green before teeing off.
I see no issue with what @kpaulhus did. If anything they should have let you through just so you weren't "pressuring" them to speed up every hole. Everyone would have had a much better time as a result.
Very cool round of golf for Na. Never been a fan but I am now. He started thinking about getting the record for quickest round ever on the back 9. Ironic and kinda funny cuz he's not known for being a burner. Shoots +2 on the front.
Starts running to his ball, racing his caddy, just having a blast on the back. Plays -4 on the back, birdieing the final 4 holes. 1:59:52 for the entire 18. Never did hear if that's the record but it sure was funny. Cool guy.
Nope. Both men in their 40's. Couldnt hit a drive over 200 yards. They didnt wait on a par 3 because they took so long on the hole prior that the 4some had already finished and were on the next tee.
I guess I should rephrase my question, if a group is waiting on you on every hole, as in almost pulling up as your group is teeing off, should you let them through. Most guys know each other at our club, but I had never seen this twosome before, and one of them was a guest. The foursome waived us up on the next hole once we got through the twosome anyways.
Sure but the thought process of the 2some is that they can't get by the 4some so they're playing at pace with them. By the time they tee off and get to their ball, the 4some is probably just walking off the green. Now the 2some doesn't have to wait for their approach shot. But, by the time they get to the next tee, the 4some probably hitting approach shots so they're waiting again. I still think the 2some was fine in their etiquette, terrible golf ability notwithstanding. 2 hours to play 9 is not on target for a 2some but it is for a 4some and they were constrained by said 4some so they're good.
Rules perhaps a bit different at a private course because you may have known the 4some in front and were confident they'd let you through. At a muni, we're I in that 2some, I wouldn't make that assumption.
