European tour adding a 40 second shot clock

The European Tour will impose a 40 second shot clock during the Austria Open in the upcoming season.

According to the Daily Mail:

A referee will walk with every group and time every stroke. Players will be allowed 40 seconds for each shot and receive the equivalent of a yellow card for a first offence. Every breach thereafter will see them docked a penalty stroke each time.

Mark Zecchino and Bob Weeks discussed the use of a shot clock this week on Golf Talk Canada.
