Pick one of these

1. Keep moving: Proceed quickly the next tee after putting out, and to your ball between shots.

2. Be ready to hit: When it’s your turn to play, take 45 seconds, maximum, to hit your shot.

3. See it, read it, hole it: While others are putting, read your putt and be ready when you’re up.

4. Always be prepared: Start the round with tees, markers, balls and a ball-mark repair tool in your pocket. Replace head covers as you walk or while waiting for others to hit. Write down scores on the next tee, not at the green while the next group waits to play.

5. Be cart smart: Drop off your partner and drive to your ball, or vice versa. When you leave the cart, take three clubs, not one. Park behind greens, not in front, whenever possible.

6. Watch your partners: When someone in your group hits an errant shot, watch it closely to pinpoint its location. Help others search for balls when it’s convenient – close to your ball, for instance – and move on when it’s not.
