I left an easy putt on the green this past Sunday, and it bothered me enough that I am still thinking about it the next day. It was under two feet, the result of a long putt on the previous stroke, with a bit of a break in it. I was the last to putt and the other guys were already walking off the green. I did not want to hold the party up, and it was so short that I skipped the entire part of investigating, analyzing, and then executing the plan. Ya know...golf. So I hit it straight and it lipped out due to the break. Thing is, I do that often. And I am not the only one. I mostly golf with the same 8 or 10 people all the time. And I think every one of us has done this. Nobody is rushing us, either. If I stayed an extra 30 seconds to do it right every single time I would not get any grief for it. Is this a problem in our "culture" that we need to intentionally fix or is it just the nature of amateur golf for fun - not league play? (I do not see those as mutually exclusive, btw. A person can play smart when not in competition.) Mostly I am interested in hearing if any of you guys do this, and if any of you have successfully got out of this REALLY STUPID habit.
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?"
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 front of us out of the way to let us hit and of course we get up and it is the pro playing in the four ball saying it was rude etc etc and he would have let us through, yea right, the time was when we were on the tee box with you!. I am just so sick of this and do not know what to do? Today I was stuck behind a 4 ball of old hacking men, with no one in front of them, for the 4th, 5th, 6,th par 3, 7th and 8th when I eventually walked off because they never let me through. What is there to do about this?
