It takes all sorts of people to make this world. Makes life interesting and colourful though.  Smile

Truth is, I suspect most golfers would be fine with those who play 150m off the blue but hit it straight all the time. The problem, like I mentioned, is that some newbie golfers try too hard off the blue which results in poor shots. This delays their game further and frustrates the flights behind.

If you're a steady 150m off-the-tee-box golfer and have accuracy but limited distance, that's fine. I'm sure you'll get to the green much faster than those who pretend to drive 250m but end up doing so sideways.

Like i said.. its very much dependent on the golfer. Even on white.. they want to drive 250m.. still end up doing it sideway will also delay the rest. So playing off white is not the only variable.. it all boils down to the golfer.

Have experience a few times before when playing with people that I dun know (join flight or competition) some golfer will line up properly.. do waggle.. setup up posture.. aim.. look at target.. then take practice swing!..

Then repeat a few times.. before stepping up to the ball and repeat.. then worse it they hit it fat.. or thin.

we should not equate lousy golfers with slow golfers.

my group average 110 but we can finish the game within a decent time of 4hr 30min from the blue tee.

from my observation, usually the slow golfers are the million-dollar-putt golfers. i have seen groups spending 10 min on almost every green.

Why do you play from the blue if you shoot 110?

If you know how far Zhenxua tee off then u will know why.
If not he will need to wait for ppl to clear off the green for par 4 before he can go.

Eh, after playing with you only 1 time at Banang I don't believe your group played 110. Your score alone will bring your friends' average score down to at most 92.  Shocked

indeed less good golfers may not be slow golfers at all.

Certainly I agree with this statement. I noticed that generally newbie golfers tend to run after their screwed shots as they know they are holding back the flights behind but experienced golfers will take their sweet time even after their stray shots. Therefore the true slow golfers are the experienced ones and those making big bets.
