Golf reacts to European Tour's Shot Clock Masters

 

The European Tour’s Shot Clock Masters - designed as an antidote to the ever increasing time it takes professionals to play - has garnered a mostly positive reaction from the world of golf.

Many European fans are wearing it as a badge of honour, pointing to the PGA Tour and suggesting they too need such an innovation to reverse the current trend. We aren't holding our breath. 

The idea was to have a shot clock, allowing golfers playing first 50 seconds and those second 40 seconds to hit. Fail, and a shot penalty is incurred.

Finland's Mikko Korhonen came through a weak field to win on -16.
