Mike Purkey, Deputy Editor, challenges PGA Tour Slow Play Policy in latest issue.

February 6, 2012 Global Golf Post

The PGA Tour is not going to do a damn thing about slow play. Not now, not ever.

Global Golf Post, the first digital weekly golf news publication, takes on the PGA Tour slow play policy-or lack thereof in its February 6 issue. In a column entitled “Slow and Slower Is Dumb and Dumber” Purkey points out that the PGA Tour refuses to believe it has a slow play problem

“Unfortunately, all we are left with is to face the facts. The discouraging, frustrating, fist pounding, let’s walk off the golf course facts,” adds Purkey in the February 6, 2012 issue of The Post. “The PGA Tour is not going to do a damn thing about slow play. Not now, not ever.”

Purkey also cites two recent examples of the Tour’s unwillingness to recognize that there is a problem. In the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the leaders, grouped in a threesome, took an hour to play the first three holes, and more than five hours to play the entire round. In the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego the week prior, the leaders took five hours and twenty minutes to finish regulation play.
