R&A Promotes 'Ready Golf'

Slow play has been the subject of a study by the R&A in an effort to speed up the game and 'Ready Golf' has been introduced as one of a number of guidelines aimed at improving the flow of golfers around the course.

The practice can be used in stroke play and when safe to do so. Examples include;

Playing a shot when ready rather than observing the farthest from the hole convention.

Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play.

Playing your own shot before helping someone look for a ball.

Continuous putting when possible.
