Time (in the) zone: Roach shoots 65 in 2:20


GREENSBORO, N.C. – Who says slow play is an issue on the PGA Tour?

Playing by himself in the final round of the Wyndham Championship, Wes Roach carded a 5-under 65 at Sedgefield Country Club. He didn’t exactly dawdle, either, clocking in at 2 hours, 20 minutes to complete his round.

The PGA Tour rookie knew as soon as final-round tee times came out that he had an opportunity to play one of the fastest rounds ever on Tour:

While the Tour doesn’t keep official speed records, Roach’s time still wasn’t the fastest on Tour this year, as Max Homa completed the final round of the Puerto Rico Open by himself in just 1 hour, 58 minutes.

Roach made seven birdies on the day, and by the time he holed out for par on the 18th green he had a six-hole gap over the next-closest group. Nicholas Thompson and Peter Malnati, who teed off seven minutes after Roach, didn’t reach the final hole until more than 90 minutes after Roach completed play.
