Open Championship marker gets put on the clock

With 83 players making the cut at The Open Championship this weekend, the R&A offered a non-competing marker to the lone player in the 42nd game strolling around Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

For Joost Luiten, the chap playing by himself on Saturday, that marker held up the pace of play to the point of frustration.

“Frankly I could not understand much about this guy,” Luiten said, according to the Telegraph. “We had Tom Watson and Lee Westwood, two fast guys, behind us. After only two holes they were waiting behind us. That cannot be right and the referee told him that too.”

The change of pace, so to speak, may have actually helped the Holland native. He shot 1-under 69 for his best round of the week.
