    This is the truth and to me it really sucks balls.

    I wish they would just start penalising players 2 shots EVERYTIME they exceed 40 secs.

    I know it doesnít affect my game, but I enjoy watching golf and I hate watching these snails.

    Adam Scott is right, except he has it twisted: if the viewers start complaining, the money (and advertisers selling to them) will respond accordingly. He is inferring that the 'money' will just dry up because it's the right thing for them to do. Money only stops when viewers do and your brand is worth less, and if you wait until you've already got a declining viewership and a less valuable brand and then wait for the advertisers and broadcasters to get the message, it's already too late.

    Imagine running a business and despite knowing where the faults and flaw are, you don't make any changes until you're losing money.

    You look at every PGA Tour social media post related to the win and every single person is slagging them off for JB and his slow play. Itís been relentless all morning, letís hope they listen.

    They need to. It's quite literally their only job: to entertain those watching. Stop doing that, and the money stops soon after. Golf has a bad enough rap as a boring, slow game as it is.

    At least JB won this time I guess. Better than last year where he was one back on the par 5 72nd hole and spent 4:10min debating his second shot from the middle of the fairway and ended up laying up anyway. Heís a stain.

    The Dooch paid up, would be good to have a second win. A fine for Kelly Kraft and that gear he was wearing would be a good tri.

    22 years since I subscribed to Foxtel.

    And $15,000 that didn't go to Rupert and the shareholders.

    Viewers need to complain to tv, not the tour.
    The tour will change when tv tells them to change.

    Time for golf to introduce a shot clock.

    The worst part is he waits until itís his turn to play to start the whole routine. He could do most of it while his playing partners are putting out or playing their shots in the other side of the fairway.

    We have a higher capper at our club that does the same thing.

    Heís gotten a bit better; he never used to exit his cart before it was his turn to hit.

    Drives people nuts.

    As no one knows what the other pros or the tv stations thoughts are about this, you should all leave jb alone. #kuchlogic

    So it's JB's fault they were on the tee on 18 while the group in front were leaving the green? Half a hole behind and we are outraged?
