With all the clamor regarding speed of play on professional tours, college matches, and the amateur ranks, one would think there would be more emphasis on how fast we can play rather than measuring how slow we play? It’s like telling your children, “Don’t jump on the bed.” The only thing we hear is we play slow. So, if everyone does it, what’s the issue?
Rather, what if the focus were on how fast we play? What if we spoke about how quickly certain professionals played a round of 18 holes? Wouldn’t we try to match or beat them?
My point is to forget the others. Focus on what you want to become.
We play faster.
