It'll probably come back during spring and summer. I agree, we as players, are responsible to speed up play. But unfortunately, there are a very large number of players who slow down the game so much it backs up somtimes at least two groups behind them. Example: Playing from the black/blue tees when they should play from the more forward tees. Not playing ready golf. Another example: Spending more than five minutes looking for a lost ball. Example: both balls are struck about the same distance. One to the right and one to the left. Instead of getting out and assessing their lie, they sit in the cart until one partner hits, THEN getting out of the cart, walking over to the ball, assessing the distance, then walking back to the cart spending a minute or so deciding what club to hit, then walking up to the ball, taking a couple of practice swings, then hitting. In the meantime two groups are backed up. It does happen a lot. I'm not a long hitter, so when I figure the front group is safely out of range I tee up and hit. That gives time for the group to move,up, then the longer hitters in my group hit. That hopefully speeds up olay. Ready golf and consideration for other players. Another rule we use. When possible, let the faster players play through. Now that I got that off my chest. Happy New Year to all.
