There isn’t a single golfer who hasn’t had to suffer through slow play in golf at least once in their time. It’s the scourge of the game and, despite better clubs, balls and GPS devices, is still as prevalent now as it has ever been. With a slow player dampening the game for all of us, we look at how you can speed it up next time you’re on the course. In fact, I believe speeding up your golf is one of the ways to play great golf and get in a perfect golf impact position every time.
The game of golf rewards precision, but a growing problem in the game is the rise of slow play in golf. “Slow play” refers to the scenario where too much space on the course has opened up between one group and the group following them. Clubs have different rules regarding slow play, but often the difference allowed is one hole. Any more and you’re guilty of slow play.
