Slow play benefits Tour, loses viewer
"That’s what a lot of this is about. The longer it takes to complete a round, the more TV time the tour gets for its product." (“Hawk & Rude,” March 2).
Slow play on the PGA Tour, and the Tour’s attitude and refusal to do anything about it, is because of greed, and nothing more. That is why I no longer watch any golf on TV. Absolutely none. For many years, I watched every minute of most TV golf telecasts.
As a senior, I devote that time now for other things and rely on TV sports news for any video clips and results. Reading the weekday edition of Morning Read for as long as it remains available will continue to accompany my morning cup of coffee.
