Slow conference about slow play

I shall describe this as succinctly as possible. Because they spent two whole days discussing the subject. Two days? I would have put them on the clock.

There was a summit meeting at St Andrews last week called “Time For Golf”. Slow play was discussed from every possible angle. European Tour player Stephen Gallacher spoke the most sense. He saw slow play as a form of cheating. He said fines didnt work, penalty shots were the way forward. Royal and Ancient are bringing out a slow play manual.

Other notables said players take too long because they think too much and are overcoached.

I would also add that some caddies talk far too much and encourage their player to have a stewards enquiry over all the variables before playing the shot because they enjoy a good chat.

That’s it, in three paragraphs. Onto the next hole.
