COVER STORY CYRIL WALKER When you beat the great Bobby Jones to win the 1924 US Open, you’re probably entitled to do whatever you want, whenever you want ... At least that’s how Cyril Walker felt during the 1929 Los Angeles Open. The American was on the 5th hole during the final round when tournament officials caved and sent two policeman out to relay their request for him to speed up play. Walker’s response? “Who the hell are you? I’m a US Open Champion! I’ll play as slow as I damn well please!” E J.B. HOLMES The proverbial hit the fan earlier this year when the 36-year-old took more than four minutes to play his second shot into the final hole during the Farmers Insurance Open. The American needed an eagle at the par-5 to get into the playoff for the title but eventually decided to lay up. His playing partner, Alex Noren, had to wait to hit his approach and went on to lose a playoff against Jason Day. “I don’t understand what the big hoopla is all about,” Holmes said. “I was just trying to give myself the best chance to win the tournament.” AND THEY’RE RACING Unlike the others previously listed, this group of current players is renowned for how quick they pull the trigger – and would likely have time to spare on the 40-second shot clock each and every time. 1.
