Frustrated fans at RBC Heritage filmed timing Patrick Cantlay

Published

on

There were plenty of takeaways from the 2023 Masters, but the one that continues to get the most social media attention is Patrick Cantlay’s slow play.

The 31-year-old was visibly slow during the final round of The Masters and the trend seemed to continue at the following weeks RBC Heritage.

Cantlay was being heckled about his pace by the fans all throughout the week.

The Twitter account “Beer At The Turn” captured a video with a fan taking out a timer and timing how long it took Cantlay to hit a shot from behind a tree. The final number was 2 minutes at 50 seconds.

Even “Shooter McGavin” got in the mix on Twitter making fun of Cantlay’s slow play.

It’s hard to argue that Cantlay’s pace of play is a bit too methodical, and thus he’s become the poster child for slow play on the PGA Tour.

He’s set to tee it up at this week’s Zurich Classic to defend his 2022 title alongside his good friend Xander Schauffele at TPC Louisiana. The duo is an overwhelming favorite at 3-1 to win the event so there’s a good chance golf fans will see him on their television screens once again this weekend.

Report: Greg Norman spotted following a surprise grouping on Thursday at the Masters

Published

on

Greg Norman is at this week’s Masters tournament but found himself in a situation where he had to buy himself a ticket to enter the grounds.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Norman explained why he was at Augusta National:

“I’m here because we have 13 players that won 10 Masters between them. So I’m here just to support them, do the best I can to show them, ‘Hey, you know, the boss is here rooting for you.’ ”

So who was Norman following during the opening round of this year’s Masters? Well the answer may surprise you.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Bob Harig, Norman was spotted following the LIV-less grouping of Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.

We’ll find out a little later today whether Norman will make his third appearance in as many days at this year’s opening major.

Collin Morikawa makes surprising late putter switch at Masters

Published

on

Collin Morikawa has had plenty of success with a blade in his hands over the course of his young career, but after a lean spell on the greens lately, it appears that the 27-year-old is ready to try something new.

The California-native began the year with his TaylorMade TP Soto before switching to a Logan Olson proto last month. Now at this week’s Masters, Morikawa has been spotted with a Spider Tour X, the same flatstick that Scottie Scheffler will be using at Augusta.

The move would represent a big change, but it has been a very frustrating year on the greens for Morikawa, who will hope the TaylorMade mallet can offer him a similar upturn in fortune to that of Scheffler. In 2024, Morikawa ranks 164th for Strokes Gained: Putting, and 157th for Total Putting.

We’ll keep an eye whether Morikawa puts the mallet into action on day one of the Masters.

Scheffler is one of the shortest priced favorites of recent times at the Masters, and is looking for what would be his third win in his last four events.
