I play golf every day. Regardless of how many are in my group (1 to 4) I allow faster groups to play through.
I realize a lone golfer ranks lower on the "play through" list, however ... on the 4th, a group of 4 teed off ahead of me, 2 of the 4 put a ball into the woods. I golf with the other 2 of the 4, so they know, even if I have a bad round, I'm done in 3 hours. They continued on as if I wasn't there.
Today, the 5th, I waited for a twosome (one of which, again, I golf with) on hole #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5. Finally I just "mosied along" rather than walk.
I have let these same golfers play through if I notice they are waiting on one hole ... I guess my question is, are they feeling they have the right to play no matter what? and, should I maybe let them wait the same as they make me wait?
I am a firm believer in "keep it moving" but it is about speed of play, not "I can stay ahead of you, maybe"
Please share your comments, I would like to get a sense of how people generally feel about this.
