There are simple ways that will take 30 minutes off of a round, amateur or pro. Play ready golf; no waiting around, especially when your opponent is on the other side of the fairway. Get to your ball, get a quick distance and hit. Next, stop marking after every putt. The ball isn’t dirty, and you take up time. Last, continuous putting should be the rule. Try not to step on your opponent’s line, but keep moving.
Four hours should be a long round.
