I've been thinking about this over the past 24 hours. Yesterday I watched 3 holes of the Valero, and finally turned it off because I couldn't stand watching the "Louper" incessantly going up and back to his ball. It is true, made me completely forget about Kevin Na!
So my thinking is this... Every week NASCAR has a drivers meeting before every single race. So does IndyCar and every other form of motorsports. What does this have to do with golf? Everything. Professional motorsports drivers are incredible professionals, just like golfers. They race the cars even MORE than a golfer plays each year. And NASCAR has an hour long meeting to go over the rules each and every week for the competitors. If you don't follow the rules, you get a penalty. Even if you follow the rules you may get one in post race inspection. They have timing loops all over the place for speeding (pits) and also if you're dawdling on track (the cars that are in accidents and try to earn points)
What's the golf tie in? Plenty. Have the same thing with every competitor before the start of a tourney every week. Go over the rules (can you say Whistling Straits and DJ) every week in advance. And tell everyone what the expected pace of play for that course should be for each nine holes. If you hit a "timing station" off pace you get a warning. Do it twice and you are "on the clock." Third time and it costs a stroke.
How can you do this? It's a simple timing system for crying out loud. And it only takes one knucklehead to mess up everyone else. So if you set up these "stations" you just might get everyones attention.
It cant hurt.....
