    I do not understand why players remain inactive until the time runs down. If it's 90 seconds, it's very tedious. Does waiting give you some advantage that I am unaware of? It takes me about 15 seconds. Is it nerves? To me it is confusing.  Thanks

    Some people are actually Using a calculator to figure out their shot, or looking at t their charts And of course others are just wasting time

      Good 1st Post .

      There are as many answers as there are players that do that . None of it makes any sense . Some say they want to get their moneys worth out of the time . Some just want to get the opponent riled up .

      Some seriously need the whole clock to calculated and move the aimer , choose the right club . That's what the clock is for .

      Probably doesn't happen enough to worry about . If it does , your just lucky .

      Luck if you do and luck if you don't .

      Keep playing and enjoying .

      Welcome to the Forum's .

    Very simple , it`s their way of stealing a win . They keep timing out you get frustrated and quit . They get a cheap and easy win . Others will become disrespectful and use foul language or racial slurs to get the same results .

    This is what you have to put up with when playing people you dont know . This is why you play with club members if you belong to a club . Also create a friends list and only play with those people . Otherwise always expect to play with the less desirables when playing the unknowns .

      In 3 hole coin games . Between chatting and calculating . And now I'm finding my mouse doesn't like to click at all about 30 % of the time . I get a time out every round . And have DQed with 2 on many occasions .

    you have other options than a 90 sec clock. 60 45 and 30 are on the table.  change the clock instead of coming here crying about how long people take. sometimes i take 15 seconds to hit the ball. sometimes i take the whole 90. it depends on the shot. grown people crying in the forums is unbecoming.

      In the now ever popular Coin Rooms format . There is a fixed 45 second shot clock . That cannot be changed .

      For many other formats . There are the other options . But because I like to play Coin Rooms . Because it is possible to get a game there .I have had to learn how to guess more . And with the random green speeds . That hasn't been easy . And not having been born with " the feel of the slope " . I couldn't calculate them anyway .

      It is just a faster game . And I still find some that because I used 40 seconds . Say I take to long . Lol .

      I just say " Hey don't rush my golf game " . Or " Slow your roll Bud " . Or " What , you have a plane to catch ?" Or " If I could go any faster I would ".Or " Maybe if I go slower it will "F" you up and you will forfeit " Lol no I never tried that one .

      I will say that because I am not the only player with a 30 to 45 second " load rendering " before the tee . Almost 100 % of the players are patiently there at the tee nowadays . And at least half of them have been more willing to acknowledge at least a greeting .

      Big improvements .

    In most of the multi-player rounds that I set or am a part of I choose 90 seconds. And most of the time I don't come close to using 90 seconds.  But I also hate running out of time or being concerned that  I am on the "clock". Peace of mind helps in lining up a long breaking putt on Merion.

    So if the people I am playing with take 90 seconds, I have no problem. I don't like speed chess any more than I like speed golf. Some moves require more thought.
