Groups of 4, 2 per cart. Not able to deviate and walk. Need to realize this is a large tournament that must be run efficiently and effectively as possible. You are part of a foursome and your foursome is part of 104 on the course at the same time. In addition, many courses have long distances between holes and it is just horrible walking from one green to the next tee. Now after hitting your ball onto the green, grab your putter and walk the remaining distance to the green and that typically doesn’t slow down your foursome.
Will tell a story on this subject. Wasn’t WAM but another tournament with a guy that “likes to walk” and was all about himself. He told his cart partner after teeing off, he will walk to his ball and expected his cart partner to meet him at his ball. Basically expecting the cart rider to caddie for him. F that. The guy in the cart would drive to his own ball which many times caused the guy to walk long distances to get his club which slowed down the foursome and backed up the tournament as I was witnessing this as being the group behind this foursome. After about 5 holes, the group almost all came to blows with much screaming and arguing. Was totally miserable for everyone. Life is too short and everyone needs to understand not to be so damn selfish and play in the manner the tournament is set up. You are part of a group and subgroups and my #1 rule of golf: be a good partner and make those around you enjoy the round.
