Dealing with slow play
Posted 26 February 2012 - 01:41 PM
I just started playing match play for my club and it seems that the better a player thinks he is the slower he plays. The guy I played yesterday was lying belly down on the greens from 3 or 4 angles while reading putts... the round took 6 hours!
Am I right in thinking there are no specific rules to increase the pace if play? Shouldnt we be keeping up with the pace of play? The group in front were on the 18th green as we walked down the 15th fairway.

Tournament or Match Play does reduce your options, though you can still walk off if your round is spoiled anyway. The fun part is that his score won't be validated by you so that's a bit of vengeance.
Habitually slow players are selfish people. Most of the time they are just ignorant and those can be forgiven but the ones who are habitually slow and aware of it, I find easy to leave.
