As for the 5somes, there can always be a division that has exactly 5 players.

And thinking you can't miss this easy putt will have you missing easy putts.

45 min is good. As been only in intermediate player , less skill equals more shots more shot equals more time. Also being intermediate we are started the furthest away from tournament central and have the longest walk back which also takes more time . But as the saying goes get better and move up. I have been on 1 of those cards that was last to come in in only had 20 minutes for lunch and played very well the 2nd rd. Too long of a lunch is too tiring. maybe give the Ams a half an hour earlier start time ...
A bad day at disc golf is still better than a good day at anything else.... Unless its also disc golf

I agree less skill equals more shots and starting and ending further away from Tounament Central, both are true.

However I never seen that equal or mean more time.... What I see are the INT and REC players take much less time between shots even though they have more strokes I think the REC & INT players "in general" play much faster. Not to pick on the women but the REC and INT women must socialize more as those groups do seem to play the slowest in my observations, Then I think the order is: any womens DIV then the Pro followed by the ADV and INT and REC even though they have most strokes I think they play the fastest. Anyway that is my observation so I would put 5 rec players in a group if possiable and mayber 3 women in a group if possiable and 4 in the rest of the division if possiable to even out the playing time and keep everyone moving around the course at a more even pace.

I voted 45, but will go with flow. I've spotted a few tourneys, and have seen a vast difference in the speed of various groups. Some groups play with absoutely NO sense of urgency. They seem to have no idea that groups are backing up behind them. Many finish late through no fault of their own. A lot of this is beyond the TD's control.
