That is not fast for a single. I usually do 18 in around 2 hours taking my time.

Walking 7100 yards?

:shrug Play faster. You get what you get.   Slow play penalty costs player cut (and paycheck) at Women's PGA  

My number one biggest issue with slow play on tour is the players who get to their ball and then don't even begin to figure out their shot until the other player behind them has hit. 

I don't think the word 'fast' should be included in pace of play. I like the term ready golf. I don't go out to play golf so I can play it fast because that would take away enjoyment. Just the same, o

I’ve done my local course in 1:45 and that’s 6200. Did it with a friend as a twosome in 2:15. For most courses I’ve played, its the walk between holes that extends the length, not the card yardage. I’m just commenting that its not “insanely fast” as the tweet suggested.

Not to mention, you have to walk past the back tees in many cases, not all.

It’s pretty damn fast for a PGA Tour player.

I’ve done 2:25 with a twosome. Waited on a single for three holes.

It’s not comparable.

120 * 1.15 for the yardage is 138.

I think Adam knew he was not going to win and just wanted to get the hell out of town. Get home and barbecue on a Sunday early evening.

My bad.  Kisner (not sure how I conjured up Adam).  And he wanted to catch an early flight and get home to barbeque on a Monday evening.

I would love to see a tournament format akin to speed chess. The players get a certain amount of time to play their shots, to play each hole, something. I'm not looking for a speed golf tournament per se; I know there are records maintained for speed golf, and that's sort of a thing in and of itself. 

But what I would like to see are occasional alternate format events on the PGA tour. One such event could be where they are only allowed to carry 7 clubs (or 5, or whatever). 

What I would be after in the speed golf event would be that the player gets to his ball and is given the yardage and must select a club and play _really_ quickly, like the shot must be in the air within 20 seconds after he is given the yardage. You could have markers walk to the guy's ball and shoot a distance to a pin and that's all they get. One number. Once they get the number, the have to pull a club, take their stance, and swing. 

Just to see how they do with that kind of challenge, push them out of this excruciating "grand rounds" discussions they have with the caddie over every shot. 

And yeah maybe it would speed up play.

I'd like to see the players themselves have to work out yardages on their own, no help from caddie. Like us normal folk... 

 

And don't get me started about having them find their own d*mn ball in the rough too.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
