PRLog - Jan. 25, 2011 - I find it completely unbelievable the number of times that I have been enjoying a beautiful day, on a lush green golf course, scoring well and enjoying the company only to have it ruined by the selfish players ahead of me who can't seem play at a reasonable pace. While I notice others playing slowly and often find myself held up, especially on weekends, I am not a particularly good golfer. I play fairly consistently to a 15 handicap and have done so for about 10 years now.
The peculiar thing is that I have discussed my concern with many golfers who are both much better and much worse than I and they all have similar complaints about slow play. If all these people are complaining about slow play then who is responsible for all the slow play?
Most golfers have at least a superficial understanding of the rules of golf. Most of the time they choose not to apply the rules that they are aware exist. I couldn't care less if you insist on cheating. What I am talking about is using your 'foot wedge' to better your lie or nudging the ball onto a tuft of grass in the fairway, or take a mulligan for that sand shot that didn't quite make it out of the bunker the first time. None of these rules infractions impacts me so basically I don't care.
Golf is a game that you play against yourself. I play against all of my previous scores and you play against all of your previous scores. Each of us is trying to beat each and every round that we ever played. However, once you start to affect my round by slowing down the play for everyone on the golf course I've got a bone to pick with you. You might not be breaking any rules but in my mind, given that we are not playing against each other like those guys on the PGA tour, I consider you to be breaking something more important than the 'rules of golf'. You're breaching the fundamental etiquette of the game!
