Pace of Play Tips
Here are checkpoints to determine if you are out of position and lagging behind where you should be:
On a Par 3 - If the group ahead is walking off the tee on the next hole, you are out of position.
On a Par 4 - I f you are on the tee and the group in front of you is off the green, you are out of position.
On a Par 5 - If you are on the tee and the group in front of you is on the green, you are out of position.
The LPGA is launching a global initiative to introduce more women to golf through the power of invitation.
