When you run into slow play on the course

It’s going to happen at some time in your future.  You are cruising along a course and in a rhythm and feeling like your game is coming together.  All of a sudden, you catch up to a slow group in front of you, and the pace comes to a screeching halt.  Everybody in your group complains and gets frustrated.  You lose your game and your score takes a nosedive for the rest of the round.

As with everything I teach, the time to fix these things is BEFORE you go out to the course. Too many golfers ask me questions in this format:  “Craig, what do I do when…..(bad thing happens)?”

The better question should be something like:  “Craig, how can I be prepared so that when I run into slow play, it doesn’t affect me negatively?”

Below is a 12 min. coaching call I did with a golfer to address this issue.  This should never be a problem ever again for you after listening to this.

By the way, my student in the audio went on to her club championship, took my advice and she played awesome through the slow play that she expected.


Greens and Fairways,

    Hi Craig,
    Your conversation highlighted the same issue that I have at times faced. When my pre-shot routine is on song I’m able to deal with all sorts of distractions because I only lock into playing the shot when it’s time too. The rest of the time I just enjoy what’s going on around me. The trigger for getting into the routine is making a judgement on “How far out am I?”. By the time I have this done I’m ready and pre-focused on hitting the shot.
    The more I play, the better I get at managing this space.

      Yeah Mike! You got it. Perfect example of using a suggestion I make and then tailoring it for you. That’s what my
      stuff is designed to do. Nicely done!
      Greens and Fairways,
