On the heels of the PGA Tour official affecting the outcome of the Bridgestone when slow play is so often overlooked on Tour, I have a rant of my own.
Why is it you almost never see a golf course marshal kicking a slow group in the pants that is grinding like it’s the last day of the Ryder cup? Yet so often I get harassed and am under constant threat of being asked to leave the golf course if I don’t hit when the group in front is still in my range.
I am torn. I would love to see even more strict slow play rules enforced for the likes of Ben Crane and Padraig Harrington, but I also don’t want too see the outcome of a PGA Tour event be affected by an official late on Sunday.
I would love to see a 4-some that is grinding like their life depends on it and are 3 holes behind, be asked to skip holes if they don’t pickup the pace. On the other hand, I don’t want to be forced to hit 2-iron on a 340 yard par 4 under penalty of being asked to leave the course if I don’t hit immediately.
Boy, I guess the only child in me really came out in this post. 🙂
