'She's...slower than evolution'

March 05, 2010

Christina Kim was not pleased with the pace of play at the Australian Ladies Masters, notably that of her playing partner, Australian Tamie Durdin. Always outspoken, Kim did not hold back in her criticism of Durdin, with these posts on Twitter:

-- "Tamie Durdin may be an absolute sweetheart, which she is, but she is without a doubt one of the slowest players on Earth."

-- "hey hey come on, be nice. She's still a fine player, just slower than evolution."

Ordinarily it's probably not a good idea to publicly criticize fellow players, but slow play is a scourge. The perpetrators need to be identified. Maybe they can be shamed into picking up their plodding pace.
