Casey on slow play: We did this to ourselves

LA QUINTA, Calif. – On the same day the PGA Tour and European Tour announced tougher pace-of-play policies, one veteran of both circuits pointed out that slow play has become a self-inflicted cycle.

“It seems to be a little bit of a trend that players, when they come out on Tour they seem to be a little bit slower than the previous generation,” Paul Casey said at The American Express. “But that’s our fault because you watch your peers, you watch your heroes and your stars on TV, the guys you want to emulate and you go, well, he’s taking a long time to read the putt and that’s what I need to do.
