Switched on the European Golf tonight, on Fox, and watched the "Shot Clock Masters" in Austria. They are putting every player on a 40 second time limit to play each shot (with two shot clock extensions if needed) Each time you go outside the time limit you lose a shot. First player on the green gets 50 seconds and the others get 40 seconds. Field of 120 players instead of the larger number.
Early into the tournament and the fastest round is 3 hours 53 mins and the slowest is 4 hours 15 minutes. The average time for a round around that course is said to be 4 hours 48 min. At this stage.....there are 75 players Par or better...so it's not affecting their ability to score. The commentators indicated that the players don't appear to be playing any faster....they are just not wasting time.
Interesting to see the results, come the end of the tournament.
