After having spilled a lot of ink on the PGA Tour then during the Masters and the RBC Heritage, the question of slow play will once again animate the debates with the decision of the officials to sanction a young LPGA player during the 3rd round of the first Women’s Tour Season Major.

Rookie Lucy Li, who rose to prominence by becoming the youngest player (11) to qualify for the US Open in 2014 at Pinehurst, has been cautioned for slow play and will have to pay a fine. A few holes earlier, his group, which also included the Mexican Gaby Lopez and the Thai Pavarisa Yokutan, had been placed under surveillance by the referees considering that it was out of time.

Only the Californian has received a monetary fine, the amount of which has not been revealed, but according to our information, this sum is around $2,500 for the first eight times a player is penalized. Either way, Li avoided a two-stroke penalty.

Exceeding playing time is punishable as follows on the LPGA: A player in a group who is out of position may be penalized for excessive delay if: 1. The player takes more than 60 seconds to make a stroke, including putts; and or 2.

The player exceeds the average time for the total strokes played on a given hole by more than 10 seconds. On average, 30 seconds per move. 30 seconds for 3 hits, 120 seconds for 4 hits, etc. The Chevron Championship is one of the five major women’s golf tournaments on the Lpga Tour.

This championship was founded by Dinah Shore in 1972 and has been classified as a major since 1983. The tournament is held each spring near Shore’s home in Rancho Mirage (near Palm Springs), California at the Mission Hills Country Club (♁33° 45′ 28.4″ N, 116° 25′ 32.4″ W) discharged.

With over $2 million in prize money, the winner automatically qualifies for the Stanford Financial Tour Championship, held at the end of the Pga Tour season.
