So how many times has this happened to you? You are following a particularly slow foursome on the golf course. Each player has an audience of three watching him hit his approach shot. Then all four players go to where the next shot will be struck and the same procedure is followed, again and again. They drive away in their carts without replacing a divot, sometimes two. The players reach the green, one driver parking all of three feet off the edge. They all freeze once they get on the green because they can't quite figure out who's away.
