GOLFERS are being urged to get a move on.
CEO of the PGA European Tour Keith Pelley has slammed a growing trend of dawdling golfers.
Following slow play at the Abu Dhabi Championship and Qatar Masters, referees are now permitted to issue a ‘monitoring penalty’ for players taking too much time.
“We want to take the lead on pace of play,” Pelley said. “We are continually striving to make our product even more appealing and entertaining for our fans and this is a good starting point.
“Our players are now more aware than ever that slow play is unacceptable.”
The ‘monitoring penalty’ allows referees enforce a one-stroke penalty if indiscretions continue.
