  1. It usually make sense to join other golfers when play is backed up and I am moving faster than the people in front of me. I do this often and have noticed that "respectable handicap" often correlates with these characteristics of desirable playing partners: They are aware of the pace of play and whether or not they are holding you up or are falling behind the group ahead. They are playing off the tees that are appropriate for their skill level (this is a big one!) I am usually shooting high 70s from senior tees (5600-6000 yds). With beginners the contrast becomes obvious and they often move up to join me. The wild drivers never do. I often wondered if those guys could play senior tees and use their length shoot low 70s? Probably not. They understand ready golf and position themselves and their carts effectively (no driving back and forth in front of green and across fairway, etc). They abandon ball search after reasonable time and pick up after proceeding further with a blowup hole would be senseless (I suggest hole HC +2) If I end up with players that are generally clueless about these things I move on or skip ahead at the earliest opportunity.
