COVER STORY GLEN DAY When Jack Nicklaus, who himself was not renowned as a quick player, gives you a nickname based on how slow you play the game, there must be a problem. Known as ‘All Day’ – as in takes all day – the now 52-year- old was docked a shot at the 1995 Honda Classic and held the unfortunate distinction as the most recent player to receive a slow-play penalty in a regular PGA Tour event for over 20 years. He finally lost that record when a team received a penalty at the 2017 Zurich Classic. GUAN TIANLANG Tianlang was in the process of creating history by making the cut at the 2013 Masters as a 14-year-old. But the Chinese player earnt himself another place in the record books as the only recorded player ever receiving a slow play penalty at Augusta National. He earnt sympathy from playing partner Ben Crenshaw after receiving the one-shot penalty at the 17th hole. “I’m sick. I’m sick for him,” Crenshaw said. The third member of the group, Matteo Manassero, was less forgiving: “Well, he’s been timed and he was off time, so he was slow.” . SOOMIN LEE The European Tour has been far more proactive than its American counterpart regarding slow play – and once again it was chief referee John Paramor (the man who docked Tianlang at Augusta), who dished out punishment to the Korean at the 2017 Volvo China Open. Among the contenders for the title, Lee was given a one-shot penalty during the third round having already been assessed twice. Lee signed for a 73 and eventually finished in a tie for ninth.►
