the course of a game speed of play is extremely important.
A golfer should always be ready to play their shot when
it is deemed to be there turn. If possible without disrupting
or getting in the way of another golfer, always move
to your ball as soon as possible. Do not wait for others
to hit their shots and then decide it might be time
for you to find and prepare to hit your ball. Once you
have located your ball and are waiting for others to
hit, you should think about your upcoming shot. Club
selection, target, wind conditions and so forth can
all be determined while waiting for others to hit. If
this is done it should take no more than 30 seconds
for you to hit your ball once it becomes your turn (unless
your name is Sergio).
