Slow play is a big problem. At least that is what many people think.
Below I have found a few videos (most of them from 2019) where the players are playing veeeeeeeery slowly.
1. Bryson DeChambeau.
2 minutes and 26 seconds for a putt:
2. Kevin Na.
1 minute for a drive (herunder 6 practice swings and 10 half backswings/wiggles):
3. Jilian Bourdage.
1 minute and 30 seconds for a 3 foot putt:

4. J. B. Holmes.
79 seconds for a putt:
What do you think? Is it OK that they play so slow? Why should we be in such a hurry – shouldn’t we enjoy golf? Should there be any difference in pace of play for amateurs and for professional players (who play for a living)?
Feel free to leave a reply below about slow play – herunder if you have any ideas about how we could solve this problem.
