Each course has an optimum time.. Rolex is 11:21 this year. You get penalties for going over time, but at the higher levels you do not get penalties for going under time (Unlike in lower levels, when going under time is also bad). There are penalties for refusals and run-outs but as long as they get over it they basically get no penalties.
