Improving the Pace of Play

One of the most frustrating areas of golf for most players is the time it takes to play a round. It seems we spend more time waiting on the players in front of us to get moving than we spend actually playing the game. The problem is worse when we are in a tournament. I have a few solutions to help with this problem.
  1. When teeing off play ready golf. In other words don't worry about who "has the honor" just let the player who is ready, hit. Also don't waste time on the tee box discussing the prior hole or talking about other things. We have time to talk while walking to our next shot.
  2. When it is your turn to play, be ready. With all of the equipment we have to help us with yardage it is each player's responsibility to be ready to go. It is easy enough to check the yardage on your GPS device while another player is hitting.
  3. When you are on the green, line up your putt quickly and hit the putt. If you are not disturbing the line of another person putt out after a missed putt. As with other shots be prepared to hit when it is your turn.
  4. Don't stop the beverage cart when players are waiting on you to play. There will be a better opportunity to get your snack or drink at a later time.
  5. Put the cell phones away. It slows you down and disturbs the other players.
The game can be much more enjoyable for everyone if we can improve the pace of play. On a trip to the United Kingdom a few years ago, I had the opportunity to play golf several times and every round was under four hours. We had no golf carts or caddies. And most of the players were not highly skilled, yet we played fast every round. By following some simple guidelines and making an effort to move quickly on the golf course we can learn something from our golfing friends across the pond and make the game more enjoyable for everyone.
