Rory McIlroy blames PGA Tour for slow play ‘epidemic’

first_imgGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying “I’m getting tired of it now, yeah,” said Spieth, whose biggest problem this week was a two-way miss with his driver.“In any career, you’re going to have ups and downs,” he added. “It’s just how it works. It’s just a matter of … learning from it, finding out why, so that you don’t get as off next time in those situations and then when it’s going good, what did you do to get there. So it’s fine. Everything’s OK.”ANOTHER ACETwo rounds, two hole-in-ones.A day after Ryan Moore aced the par-3 17th, Sungjae Im did the same at No. 13.Im’s was the first of career on the PGA Tour and the 34th in tournament history. It was the 12th at the 13th.It’s also the first time since 2013 that multiple aces have been made at TPC Sawgrass.At 20 years old, Im became the youngest to ever record an ace at The Players. He hit an 8-iron from 152 yards. The ball landed a few feet past the hole, spun backward and rolled in.Im high-fived spectators as he walked to the green. He also stopped, removed his hat and bowed in a show of thanks to those cheering.CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS Even with daylight saving time, Anirban Lahiri had to return for a final putt Friday morning to finish the first round and several players had to scramble to beat the impending darkness in the second round.Why so slow?FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubs“Because (tour officials) don’t do anything about it,” McIlroy said. “It’s become somewhat of an epidemic on tour. Look, it’s our livelihoods and people are going to take their time. And as the course dries up and gets firmer and gets tougher, guys are going to take their time. But the fact that someone didn’t finish (Thursday) … that’s unacceptable.”McIlroy then checked his watch and noted that it was 5 hours, 40 minutes after his tee time. Playoff bonus race heats up “I get that it can take five hours to play out there, but it shouldn’t take any over that,” he said. “Honestly, I think (the tour) should just be a little tougher and start penalizing shots earlier, and that would be an easy way to fix it.”MICKELSON MISSESMickelson missed the cut at The Players for the sixth time in the last seven years. He also missed the cut in consecutive tournaments for the first time nearly three years.Both are troubling trends for Lefty.“I don’t know what it is about this golf course,” he said after shooting a 2-over 74 and missing the cut by five strokes. “It’s in pristine shape, it’s wonderful setup, it’s terrific, and I just don’t play well. I don’t know what to say.”ADVERTISEMENT Rory McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, right, congratulates Matt Kuchar after their round during the second round of The Players Championship golf tournament Friday, March 15, 2019, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida— Rory McIlroy says slow play on the PGA Tour has become an epidemic.McIlroy and playing partners Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar waited on nearly every tee box and in nearly every fairway during the second round at The Players Championship on Friday.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

She witnessed Woods recording his worst score at the par-3 17th in 69 rounds at the Players. She also saw Woods make par or birdie on each of the remaining 17 holes and finished at 1-under 71 for the day and 3-under 141 heading to the weekend.Woods’ niece, Cheyenne Woods, Jacksonville Jaguars place-kicker Josh Lambo and the crew from the popular YouTube channel Dude Perfect also made the rounds during the second round of the tournament. Woods, Lambo and the five Dude Perfect guys had a chipping contest on a scaled-down, replica version of the par-3 17th. They attempted shots right-handed, left-handed and backward.EASY PEASYThe par-4 12th at TPC Sawgrass is playing more like a really long par 3.The top nine players on the leaderboard, including co-leaders Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy, made birdie or better at the 304-yard hole.No. 12 ranked as the easiest on the course in each of the first two rounds and has yet to yield anything worse than a bogey. More players (147) have birdied it than those who made par (114) and bogeys (16) combined.The field has played it at a combined 145 under in two rounds: 76 under in the opening round and 69 under in the second round.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ View comments Long lines in Venezuela to pay with ‘Petro,’ the state cryptocurrency PLAY LIST 03:36Long lines in Venezuela to pay with ‘Petro,’ the state cryptocurrency00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Mickelson also had little explanation about how he’s played the last month after winning at Pebble Beach. He tied for 39th at the Mexico Championship in late February and missed the cut last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando.“I haven’t played well the last three events, so I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t feel like it’s far off. I actually felt like I hit a lot of good shots this week, but I’m having some trouble with the putter, and I’ll have to work that out.”Mickelson will take next week off and likely return at the Match Play Championships in Austin, Texas, in two weeks.Mickelson refused to blame his struggles at the Players — it’s the 10th time in he’s missed the cut at TPC Sawgrass in 26 tournaments — on off-the-course distractions.He learned earlier this week that a college consulting company he has used the last three years has been accused of orchestrating a massive bribery scheme. Mickelson said he never contributed to William “Rick” Singer’s foundation tied to his California-based company, Edge College & Career Network, but used the service to find the right fit for his children. His oldest daughter is now a sophomore at Brown.“I’m used to taking hits, but it hurts when you have your kids being questioned over doing nothing but working hard and studying hard,” Mickelson said. “But we’re going to be OK.”SPIETH OUTJordan Spieth also missed the cut, the fourth time in the last five years he’s failed to stick around for the weekend.Spieth left the Stadium Course knowing he had no chance after hitting balls in the water on consecutive holes and making double bogey on the seventh by taking two shots to get out of a fairway bunker. That negated a seven-birdie round.Spieth has missed the cut three times in eight starts this season, and has not finished closer than 14 shots of the lead in the other five tournaments.
