Gentlemen, you are screwing up a good thing.  You have a game twice a week 52 weeks a year, participate or not.  Out of town for a month, when you come back there is your game.  Gone for half a year, when you come back, there is your game.  You have the line up damn near 18 hours before you tee it up yet there are those still late on arrival, late to your designated tee times and don't really care how long it takes you to play 18 holes.  Most of the time the starter is running ahead of schedule but still you refuse to report 9 minutes prior to you designated starting time and the first tee stands open.  I don't care what your pre shot routine is but you better practice making it quicker because slow play is going to be penalized.
