After Jordan Spieth became the first high-profile professional to fall foul of the European Tour's new slow play crackdown, we asked a selection of PGA Tour pros for their opinions.
The world No 1 was issued with a "monitoring penalty" by chief referee after he took too long over a birdie putt on his penultimate hole towards the end of the first round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
Spieth's transgression divided opinion among his peers, with playing partner Rory McIlroy expressing his surprise at the warning as the marquee group were not out of position and the group behind had only just teed off.
So what do the PGA Tour professionals think about the scourge of slow play? Sky Sports asked Rickie Fowler (who was playing with Spieth and McIlroy in Abu Dhabi), Shane Lowry, Brandt Snedeker, Francesco Molinari and Jimmy Walker for their opinions.
