It took the PGA Tour's first official team event in 36 years to produce the first slow-play penalty since 1995. Brian Campbell and Miguel Angel Carballo were hit with a 1-stroke penalty at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The penalty came in the first round during alternate shot play. Typically a player gets a warning before a 1-stroke penalty is issued but the PGA Tour said this extends to partners in a team event -- likely leading to the penalty, as both players got bad times. This is the first official team event since the Disney Classic in 1981 and the first slow-play penalty since Glen Day at the 1995 Honda Classic. The Masters also gave 14 year old amateur Tianlang Guan a penalty for slow play in 2013.

I once asked the Tim Finchem (former PGA Tour commissioner) what's the biggest slow play culprit on tour. "Wind. (Expletive) wind slows golf down worse than anything else by far." The final group today at the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio played the first two holes in 54 minutes. That would be an 8 hour round if they stayed on that pace! They're playing in a wind that's coming from a different direction than the players have seen all week. Cooler temps (62F) and gusts over 20mph are proving the former commissioner's observation to be spot on.
