    Question concerning the “play clock” used in the H2H matches. Increasingly I notice opponents utilizing the entire amount of time allocated for each shot, especially with tee shots and gimme putts. Can’t say that it bothers me, but it does have me wondering. What is the benefit associated with the time utilization? Is it a mind/head game, is it a superstition, is it a method of “tricking” the game server, is it to allow time to enter data into an individual’s “shot computer”?  I notice it at all tiers and all levels. As I encounter it more frequently I am wondering what is the purpose behind the act? Should mention that I play the mobile version.

    Well, most of us wonder why that is. Some are just bitter, and some are just playing the game their own way. My video game game, my time, my way.  Besides it’s golf, design for a slow play.

    I play slowly, I have distorted vision in one eye and always use the 90 second timer.  But when I'm ready to hit I hit.  If it's 15, 30 or 85 seconds I hit when I'm ready.  If I was ready then waited for the rest of the time all I would do is second guess myself.  Sort of 'icing' myself. LOL

    But everyone plays their own way. Be happy

    Have fun and hit 'em straight,
