Golf Australia Express : GA Express 290
COVER STORY BEN CRANE The American at least has a sense of humour about his snail-like pace on the golf course, filming parody videos and posting a photo to Instagram of a turtle he suggested might play slower than him. His humour aside, the five-time PGA Tour winner’s pace of play, or lack thereof, famously caused playing partner Rory Sabbatini to play out the 17th hole at the 2005 Booz Allen Classic without Crane, after becoming frustrated at waiting so long. BERNHARD LANGER The German remains a force on the Champions Tour, but he also remains one of the more deliberate golfers ever to play the game. Lee Trevino once joked that a stubble-sporting Langer was “clean-shaven when we teed off”. And as recently as 2014, former Ryder Cup teammate Colin Montgomerie described being paired with Langer in a less than complimentary way. “It’s not easy to play with him but at the same time he’s a great golfer and a lovely fella ... he’s just a bit slow,” Montgomerie said. . JORDAN SPIETH Like Tiger Woods, Spieth suffers from the added time it takes to get his enormous galleries in order before playing. But the Texan’s intense ‘back and forths’ with caddie Michael Greller and repeated towel use before each shot does mean he takes longer than most. Included in the list of slowest players in an anonymous Tour player poll, the three-time major winner was warned for slow play in 2016 on the European Tour. He also owns perhaps the longest drop in the history of golf at the 2017 Open Championship.►
