Colin Montgomerie to fellow pros -- speed it up!
I’m not a big Colin Montgomerie fan – he’s always seemed a bit spoiled to me – but I do like what he has to say about slow play.
Slow play is one of the most infuriating things about the game and one often complained about, by all levels. For too long, the pros have been getting a free ride.
Montgomerie had enough after the Irish Open.
“There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t get round any course, anywhere in the world, in four hours.” He told the media. “The golf we are playing at the moment is an hour too long.”
I’ve seen 30-handicappers on the course walking around a putt from every conceivable angle. Why? They’re copying the pros.
Montgomerie isn’t the first to call out his fellow pros, and I hope he won’t be the last.
Far more important, the various tours should actually follow their own rules and start handing out penalties for slow play. Those slow players would leave skid marks.
And on the rest of the courses we amateurs play, they should station marshals at strategic positions with deer rifles.
