In these times of six-hour rounds, it’s important to celebrate the victories. Boo Weekley served one up at the Memorial yesterday, playing his final outing in roughly 2 hours 15 minutes at Muirfield Village.

The 45-year-old went out at 8AM and shot a 73, to finish in a tie for 71st, a round he reckons is one of his fastest ever.

While it may be the Floridians fastest, he doesn’t get the crown for the PGA Tour’s quickest ever – that goes to Wesley Bryan who played in 89 minutes at the BMW Championship.

For some years slow play has been a major concern for golf fans – particularly those watching the pros on TV – and it was once again a talking point this weekend.

Rounds at Memorial and the women’s US Open stretched out causing considerable angst on social media – nothing new there.

Fans will be pleased to see Weekely competing on weekends again after the charismatic player suffered with injury and cancer over the last few years, forcing him to take a break from the game.
