Updated: November 1, 2010

Slow play is a problem at just about every level of golf and college golfers are no are exception. The University of Washington golf team is trying to take care of that problem on their end.

The Kikkor Husky Invitational at Washington National, hosted by the Washington men, held a pre-tournament meeting where all 14 coaches were told they needed to have their players finish in four hours for each round of the tournament.

And it must be working, the results were encouraging. Tournament rounds averaged four hours, 15 minutes – about an hour quicker than usual for a college tournament round.
