I just finished playing one of the longest rounds of golf I’ve ever played at my club. You know you’re going to be in for a long day when the guy they pair you with has Titleist forged blades, a TaylorMade R500 driver (with sky marks on the top of the club) and a Scotty Cameron Putter in his bag, and three dozen ProV1x balls in his cart’s basket.
I think he used every one.
Keeping up the pace of play is one of the basic rules of etiquette on the golf course. The USGA asks players to: 1) keep up with the group in front 2) be ready to play as soon as it is your turn to play.3) play a provisional if you believe you may not be able to find your ball.
This guy could have played a provisional on every second shot.
Here some more from the USGA.
