I ran a round at DeLa yesterday, in exactly the 1:15 time I was aiming for. The main goal of staying on the fairway was achieved, and the +2 overall score wasn't great, but wasn't horrible for a running round. The score is mostly attributable to the hospitality of the threesome I encountered on the third hole. Sure, I was -1 after my birdie on 3, and -2 after another birdie on hole 5, but that's as low as I got.
Scores aside, though, the one thing that caused me to think in depth was the effect of 'rushing' through a round versus taking ones one with each shot. I know that there is the possibility that running between shots for an entire 28 holes of golf on a hilly course can carry with it the fatigue factor, but I'm discounting that element for now. I'm more interested for the moment with the thought process of analyzing one's lie and shot choices, the time it takes to do that properly, and whether doing it quickly or deliberately produces a better outcome.
