Haney: Play faster, please

Teacher guru Hank Haney has joined the ranks who promote faster play on the golf course.

"I love anything to make the game faster - that's a big point. It should be very correctable," he said. images.jpg

"It could start with the guys who play on TV for the big bucks. Haney said, "It'd be nice if the pros played faster. When amateurs look at putts from three sides, it's just something they learned from TV."

A steady reduction in the inventory of golf courses nationwide since 2007, he says, is not necessarily a bad thing.  Locally, there have been a number of closings, including Foxfire, Forest Lakes and  Sunrise.

"I don't think courses closing is too big of a deal. We probably had a situation where we overbuilt a little," he said.
