Green Reading Books and Slow Play Debate
Both Poulter and Mickelson are clearly big fans of the book as they have been constantly vocal anytime the possibility of banning them has arisen. With the DeChambeau slow play furore from last week still rumbling on the green reading books have been mentioned again in the slow play debate and the same voices have been lobbying on Twitter clearly concerned that they could be banned.
Luke Donald has weighed in regarding the 80% claim and the suggestion that it would be "idiotic" to think they affect the pace of play. I thought the 80% claim sounded bogus.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are eventually banned but it seems strange that the governing bodies let these things take hold in the game for so long before they act just like the anchor ban. Broom handle putters and latterly belly putters were used for close to 40 years.
