    Lee, the goofy speeds re for fun...no issue with having them...shakes the rounds up...but whet is saying, let's keep it rel when setting up  4 round tourney...sure, something different to ply for fun, but pull them from the "Random" selection...make it so you have to select them.

    I thank u all for the arguments and opinions, but the 'ayes' have it,

    WGTicon is taking this on board so that is good news.

    PTrenter:

    The only one of the newer speeds I've see crop up on random conditions is 'Slow 7.2'.  I I've not seen any labelled Ultra or Super yet and hope never to either. Please never put then in the random conditions pot.

    Anyone tried Merion #5 on Ultra Fast yet?

    yes. The only way to even get the ball to stay on the green is hole it out. Same with # 17 @ Olympic.

    This thread is way out of date.

    As to "calculation", there is no difference in calculation time for different speed putts.  You just have to learn them.

    Now putting 3 times from 5 ft is not good and does take too much time.  1 putt is much faster.
