    Why does it take some players forever to hit a drive or a fairway wood?  There are exceptions but most are pretty straight forward.  Even worse, some will take forever and then still blow the shot.  If you have to think about it that long, you probably need more practice.

    Please bear in mind that some of us who try to play this game are no longer youngsters !

    Me - I have poor eyesight, arthritis in my hands and try not to use a calculator, so that I can keep my brain active / alert.

    Should any of my opponents object to my slow play then I will politely ask them "What's the hurry ?"

    Some people might be disabled Mr Squash, and have this as their only entertainment. Have a bit of patience.

    Some people might be taking a quick restroom break, answering the phone, etc. as well.  It's their clock, not yours, Squatch.  Concentrate on your own game and let others play theirs.
