VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) The European Tour says its new Pace of Play policy has helped reduce average round times and may result in an increased size of fields for tournaments.

The tour is attempting to combat the issue of slow play by introducing monitoring penalties that could lead to players getting fined.

Since the revised policy was introduced last month before the "Desert Swing," times for the first and second rounds compared with the 2015 events were reduced by five minutes at the Abu Dhabi Championship, and 10 and four minutes respectively at the Qatar Masters. At the Dubai Desert Classic last week, the tour says the timings of the last match out were reduced by an average of 13 minutes.
