Golf World's Jaime Diaz notes the "mini-spike" in slow play outrage and summarizes in succinct fashion the many issues the golf world faces if it hopes to confront the issue. More disturbing than the slow play is what got Jaime fired up:
David Toms, Boo Weekley and even Tiger Woods all have sounded off. So did R&A chief executive Peter Dawson. Personally, I got amped after watching Cirbie Sheppard, a competitor on Golf Channel's "Big Break Kaanapali," haplessly indulge in a reported seven minutes (the ordeal was shown in fast motion) of pacing, club changing and general dithering before getting herself to hit a simple chip shot.
One of, if not the most esteemed writer in the game today watching the Big Break Kaanapali?
It's one thing to watch it Jaime, but to admit it in print is a cause for concern!
