Colin Montgomerie takes hilarious swipe at Patrick Cantlay’s slow play

Colin Montgomerie has always made his thoughts on slow play abundantly clear, and a recent social media post regarding Patrick Cantlay and Bernhard Langer was no exception to this
 

Patrick Cantlay has shouldered heavy criticism from all angles about his slow play in the final round of the Masters – but the eight-time PGA Tour winner can’t possibly have expected this.

At a similar time as he was facing the media ahead of the Heritage and hitting back at his critics, where he claimed he as waiting on every shot during the final round at Augusta, European Tour and Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie was posting on Instagram taking aim at the American.

The post by Montgomerie – who has never been shy to express his concerns with slow play in general, and has chatted to NCG at length about it before – also teased his friend and rival Bernhard Langer.

The Scotsman posted a picture of himself with a tortoise on his Instagram story with a caption that read: “Found a quicker partner for Langer and Cantlay.”

His wide smile says it all.

Golf fans can cast their minds back to the Senior PGA Championships of 2014 and 2016 when Montgomerie was paired with Langer.

He showed visible exasperation on a number of occasions during both tournaments as he waited for the German to complete his pre-shot routines.

A similar level of exasperation was shown by Viktor Hovland towards Cantlay at Augusta National, as the Norwegian was often seen walking ahead and playing shots when his playing partner was nowhere to be seen.
