With all of the talk lately about the game getting so slow, especially within the amateur ranks, it seems the organizers for the British Open are going to attempt to speed it up at the Open. The pace is set at 4.5 hours for a 3 ball pairing and 2 ball pairing should finish in 3 hours 45 minutes.
Jim McArthur, chairman of the championship committee, says:
I don't see anything wrong with that. It will be a good test on the time this week as tough as the course will play.
