GRAEME MCDOWELL WAS RESPONDING to Edoardo Molinari, who tweeted about the glacial times on the European Tour.
McDowell called Molinari a nice kid, but said the Italian was flogging a pretty dead horse.
“Listen, golf courses are long, golf courses are hard, we’re playing for a lot of money, it’s a big business, it is what it is,” McDowell said according to Golf Channel. “There’s just no way to speed the game up really. You can try these small percentiles, but at the end of the day it’s very hard to get around a 7,600-yard golf course with tucked pins with a three-ball in less than 4:45, 5 hours. You can’t do it.”
As promised…list of timings as of April 22nd. Next updates list will come out at the end of June!
There are a few usual suspects and a few surprises.
Please retweet and share to speed things up!#stopslowplay pic.twitter.com/VpR65M4Xrb

Only way to speed it up is with a heavy wallet hit. Until sponsors and broadcasters feel the pain from frustrated viewers it won't happen.
