    Wojo takes aim at slow play on PGA Tour - doesn't appear to actually talk to the person he uses as a top offender.

    Well, he knew it would take forever.

    Ya know, I wasn't too bothered by Na's exclusion, although I do think it was a bit curious. I was kind of waiting for a, "Na declined to comment on his pace of play." Maybe that was the case, maybe Wojo didn't try. I really don't know. But I don't think you could say he was unfair to Na. He followed him for 18 holes, he timed him. It certainly wasn't a drive-by.

    Na takes so long to play I could read that article while he two-putted!

    What it is really missing is the total time he took and a comparison to others. I kept reading waiting to see what his total time was but it was never said. Why time every stroke and then not post the times?

    I have no problem with the column - but I thought 5 hours was considered OK? I've seen stories about 5-hour-plus rounds and that seems absurd to me
