KEVIN NA For years, Kevin Na has copped it from all angles regarding his poor pace of play. So when former international cricketer Kevin Pietersen took aim with a Tweet during the 2018 Genesis Open, you can understand why Na finally cracked. The American, who didn’t have his own Twitter account, instead took to Instagram to post his defence, which included the hashtag: “Stick to your own sport.” The shot Pietersen was referencing may have been a short putt – but it was ultimately the difference between T2 and T4. COVER STORY CRISTIE KERR Despite being the only lady on this list, Kerr is certainly not alone when it comes to slow players on the LPGA Tour. But the American was involved in the six-hole sudden death playoff with Haru Nomura at the 2017 Texas Shootout, which took more than two hours to complete. Kerr, perhaps rightfully, blamed difficult weather conditions for the speed of the playoff. But Golf Channel commentator Judy Rankin suggested Kerr was “almost slow-playing herself.” KEEGAN BRADLEY The three-time PGA Tour winner, who captured the 2011 US PGA, has one of the strangest and longest pre-shot routines on Tour. Bradley is actually fairly fast to play once he is standing over the ball – but steps forwards and backwards more times than an old man’s rocking chair. The 31-year-old has previously acknowledged his slow play, and in 2012 said: “I have struggled with it a little bit. If it’s a serious issue maybe they need to start penalising or fining.”►
