PS Funny how we got done early even with this travesty of justice...
I too was concerned about speed of play in the beginning. But the two sets of doubles (8-people on one tee pad) actually seemed to move faster then 4-singles. Playing the best shot, and picking up the bad one moves pretty quick against; Crap, how do I get out of this shot?
We Started at 9:02am and 1:02pm. I had Finished, scores in, chatted with everyone, took a bathroom break at the gas station, and driving west by 4:30pm.
IMHO: I do think I am a fan of 7-person teams. It seems to flow nicely, keeps the people per tee pad down, and gives you more flexibility to avoid forcing everyone to play 1-singles and 1-dubs. Currently, if both teams field 8 people, each player plays 1-dubs and 1-singles per day. Though the 8-people playing Dubs moves quickly, it is embarrassing to me to have 8 on a pad. I feel it is bad golf etiquette, but unavoidable in this configuration.
