“I’m all for helping slow play, but putting those ladies on the clock with 2 holes left trying to win a major seems like a good read the room situation and don’t put them on the clock,” Tommaso ha scritto su Twitter.
One user pointed out that the round had almost gone on for six hours, to which Thomas responded: “That on the other hand is also an issue haha.”
Lexi Thompson, who was in that final grouping, was notified immediately after the final hole that both she and Hye-Jin Choi were fined $ 2,000 for slow play, according to Golfweek.
Slow play was an issue this weekend at the Congressional Country Club in Washington, D.C. Secondo più rapporti, Saturday’s broadcast was cut short after the final group finished in five hours and 45 minuti.
It was a tough end to the day for Thompson, who held a two-shot lead after the front nine but was undone by four bogeys in a six-hole stretch to tie with Chun ahead the final two holes.
Thompson hasn’t won an LPGA Tour event since 2019, and her lone major victory came as a teenager at Mission Hills in the California desert in 2014. She’s certainly had chances. She lost a five-stroke lead during the final round of last year’s U.S. Women’s Open at Olympic Club.
Chun won her third major championship, finishing at 5-under 283, barely enough to beat out Thompson (73) and Minjee Lee (70) by a stroke.
