Well, your post did say "Maybe if we do it before the last hole played" as if it were a suggestion.

In a typical tournament with shotgun start rounds, standing around the last basket of the round would not put you in the way of anyone behind you. Presumably, the group behind you will have started their round on your last hole (or a hole prior to that), so they wouldn't have any reason to play it again.

personally, I don't want a sweaty high five from anyone, ever. Fist bump is okay in most cases since no sweat will be transferred

That's the explanation I heard at my home course. I joined a doubles group once and was confused when they all fist-bumped at the last tee as if they were done. They explained that they do it there because it's often the last time they're all together as a group. After the last basket they tend to disperse for various reasons, especially at tournaments.

I was comparing two ways of doing it, and showing that one of them (the way we do it) is more practical.

Ok

Sometimes posts have more clarity to the poster than they do to the reader. I was just acknowledging as a non-involved third party how your post could have easily been misconstrued. The rest is between you two. I'm out.
