Time to discuss Pace of Play

November 25th, 2015

This week’s ‘Time for Golf’ Conference in St Andrews is of critical importance to the future of the game. One of the initial outcomes of the Conference will be a set of guidelines on ways to improve pace of play that delegates will help finalise before distribution in spring 2016.

That’s good because while almost everyone agrees this is a problem, getting agreement on the solutions seems to be taking, well, a very long time indeed.
