The Genesis Open 2019
By lewisham ranger on 24 Feb 19 19:42 doesn't surprise me that story about holmes.slow-play priick trying all sorts of tricks.
By jedi sophie on 18 Feb 19 11:02 Ps.First thing this morning after they stop congratulating him.They should throw the bloody book at JB. His slow play imo was actually a factor in Jt losing his cool and his patience eventually. Gamesmanship at best.Appalling to watch. Mustve been way
By lewisham ranger on 17 Feb 19 22:40 people complain about jb holmes slow play, but he'll keep doing it until he actually gets deducted shots for it, which he should be of course.
By eyeball on 17 Feb 19 21:51 should be docked shots for slow play.....plum bobbing two foot putts....mug

Of course, DeChambeau isn't the only slow player out there. Others like JB Holmes, Ben Crane, and Kevin Na have been harshly criticized through the years as well.

Was standing on the putting green with Koepka's caddie earlier when an irritated Bryson DeChambeau walked up & told him to tell his boss to make any comment about slow play "to my face". Brooks arrived soon after, got the message & ambled over for a chat with the scientist

Edoardo Molinari "really happy with the decisions taken by the European Tour to tackle slow play!
I am both happy and proud to have played a very small part in it. Hopefully golf on the European Tour will be an even better show to watch from 2020 onwards!"

The on-going battle concerning pace-of-play issues on the PGA Tour will include new steps in 2020 according to Golf Digest - confirming the PGA Tour's 'policy board' approved a number of modifications to address slow-play issues.

Everyone knows who the slow players are - among the changes will be a departure from centering on one group of players to a system that focuses on the slowest players on the Tour. Those include players who frequently take more than 45 seconds to take a shot. Players are allowed 40 seconds to hit their shot if they are not the first to hit in the group.
The players deemed as repeat offenders will be placed on a list, though that record will not be released to the public nor to the PGA Tour membership. Instead, the list will pinpoint repeat offenders and would likely lead to heightened attention of those players.

Another change could include more on-course officials assigned to monitor slow-play concerns more thoroughly. In August, the Tour announced a review its slow-play policy which included more than a decade of data collected by ShotLink, which has the capability to time players - more than 10 million shots have been timed. Also in August, the European Tour announced its four-point plan to address slow play. Players will be informed of the Tour’s new policy during an educational program the first three months of 2020. According to the Tour, the new policy will go into effect in April.
