  1. PGA Tour to create list focusing on slowest players for pace-of play-improvement, according to sources - Golf Digest The system goes into effect after the Masters in 2020.
  2. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/adam-scotts-solution-to-the-tours-slow-play-problem-ill-take-the-penalty
  3. Ridiculous. Playing partners should penalize him.
  4. I've heard this is a good video. I'll watch it after I post the video.
  5. I watched Zach Johnson yesterday taking an ungodly amount of time over an 8 footer. I thought to myself, if anyone in my 4some did that I'd wrap a f***in' club around his neck. So yes, the pros have slowed to a crawl these days. At the same time, I've never seen any professional just step up to the ball and strike it as many amateur players do. Of course there's a happy medium but sometimes when I play with high handicappers, it disappoints me that they're so self conscious that they rush their shots to get out of everyone's way. Hey man, you paid your greens fees or membership fee s
  6. Greetings .... In watching past Masters coverage, now provided officially on YouTube courtesy of Augusta National, I've noticed a multitude of things in the comparison of past and present tournaments. One of the most telling tidbits comes from the 1977 Masters replay. At about the 29 minute, 35 second mark of the video, the final round tee times are displayed. The spacing (which may also be referred to as intervals) between each 2-man group going off on Number One Tee is eight (8) minutes. Compare and contrast that with the 10-minute intervals for most current final round tee times. Also,
  7. Well, the last group of players, in threesomes, took over 6 hours to play 18 holes of golf today. It took them over 20 minutes to play the 18th hole alone. This is getting ridiculous. They over-shot their generous broadcast window by over 30 minutes. And there's a playoff likely coming up here, to boot. I can't wait for the European Tour's shot clock tournament.
  8. From here, comes this: If 6.39 is the average, and that average includes "up to 25 seconds," then there may have been a lot of players below that average, which while statistically significant, doesn't seem to be all that bad. I mean, if four players take an extra 15 seconds on a green in total, that's only 4.5 minutes per round. That is a puzzling one and they don't give much data on it. I generally don't enjoy courses with slow greens. So it increases round times but not substantially, nor even as much as they had guessed/hypothesized. The study is overall prett
  9. http://www.golfdigest.com/story/pga-tour-hands-out-first-slow-play-penalty-since-1995-at-zurich-classic About damn time. The problem with the PGA Tour policy is that you have to be out of position for quite a while and then get bad times.
  10. Ugh. Then he brags about being put on the clock only a few times. This may explain a bit of why I never really felt like I was a Jason Day fan. P.S. As one commenter on Twitter said… "Wait, that was Jason Day playing fast?"
  11. Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend. This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that the
  12. From Golf Digest (here), let's take a quick look at these… I'll bold their notes, and add mine below. 1) Play like you have only three hours to finish the round before the sun sets. Okay, so, "play faster." We're hardly off to a rousing start. 2) Ditch your headcovers. Taking them on and off all day is a serious time suck. Or, better yet, just put them on while driving from the tee to the fairway, or when other players are hitting their tee shots. 3) Play it forward at least one tee box. Well, okay, but that won't necessarily speed play a bunch. Two tee boxes, n
  13. What do you do when play is slow, the days when there is no way to play through and you just have to kill time waiting. Besides the typical chatting with your fellow players, are there any activities you occasionally do while waiting on the tee or in the fairway to play? Some players play a "game" on the tee, putting their balls with their drivers at various objects (usually tee markers). I have tried it but it is not for me. I often scour the tee collecting broken parts of tees and tossing them in the trash barrel. If there is a bucket of sand/soil I will fill in divot holes on par 3
  14. The poll above asks it pretty plainly, and to it I will say "yes." I voted yes. I support prohibiting a caddie or partner from being on the extension of the line after the player has taken his (or her) stance. Rule 14-2b currently says: I would modify it to say: It doesn't prevent a caddie from pointing at a spot on the green, or standing near the top of a hill so the player can see where to aim, etc. If you support the idea but don't like the way I wrote it up, please put forth your own idea.
  15. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Pace-of-playUSGA Please, everyone take that survey. Be honest. Post here when you've done so. I'll post here after I take the survey if I have any extra notes. Uhhh, okay, never mind. That was a ridiculously short survey. I voted that I would pay 25% more.
  16. Ok lately slow play and bad etiquette has been making me angry and depressed at my once great golf club to the point I may not pay to be a member any more. People are so ignorant and arrogant, they never ring bells to let you know its safe to hit on blind shots even though they see us on the tee box. The worst thing is I can never practice by myself or play golf with my friend as a two ball. We/I always get stuck behind a 4 ball of old guys that never let us through. They hack and hack and time waste so much its unbelievable. Once I got so mad I shouted fore to get a group that skipped in
