"Stop making excuses!" - Molinari calls for action on slow play

Golf Clock

Edoardo Molinari has called for golf’s governing bodies to take decisive action on slow play. 

The Italian, three times a winner on the European Tour, has grown weary of the amount of time it takes to play golf at the top end of the game these days and, after another long day in Morocco where he is competing in this week’s Trophée Hassan, he took to Twitter to vent his frustration.

• "It's a possibility" - Tiger on breaking Jack's record

“It’s time that professional golf does something serious for slow play,” wrote Molinari. “5h30min to play 18 holes on a golf course without rough is just too long... way too long! #stopslowplay”

• Tiger doubter forced to get huge tat of Master champ

He elaborated on his thoughts in replies to some of his followers.

Replying to a tweet from veteran caddie, Ken Herring, Molinari added: “Some of the guys would take 5 hours at a municipal par 3 course... let’s stop making excuses and let’s start doing something about it!” 

Amen to that, Dodo!
