Nelly Korda believes she and recent RBC Heritage winner Matthew Fitzpatrick could achieve an incredibly fast 18-hole round if they were paired together.
After Patrick Cantlay's pace of play was called into question just over a week ago at The Masters, it seems slow play has been the topic on everyone's mind in the golf world.
Cantlay responded to the comments a few days later:
On Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links for the final round of the RBC Heritage, Fitzpatrick and Jordan Spieth played in a group with Cantlay.
During which, Sky Sports Golf's Andrew Coltart criticized Cantlay and called out slow pace of play on the PGA Tour.
However, Fitzpatrick, who went onto win the tournament in a three-hole playoff over Spieth, is known for quite the opposite.
The 28-year-old tends to play quick and concise while out on the course. Korda, the World No. 2, has a reputation as a fast player.
So, when Golf's Claire Rogers tweeted the pair could achieve an incredibly fast set of 18 holes if they were paired up playing together, Korda couldn't help but agree:
