Brooks Koepka: “He doesn’t do anything until his turn. That’s the frustrating part.”

Brooks Koepka has finished second, first, second and fourth at this year’s Major championships.

As much as the American finished inside the top five, he was clearly unhappy with his playing partner, JB Holmes.

At one point Koepka even pointed to an imaginary watch on his wrist as he walked past an official.

Holmes has a reputation of being a slow player, and Koepka had to chime in on his behavior.

“There are a lot of slow guys out here, that’s not the first time I’ve done it, especially when you’ve got a walking official with you,” Koepka said. “I’m ready to go most of the time. That’s what I don’t understand when it’s your turn to hit, your glove is not on, then you start thinking about it, that’s where the problem lies.

“It’s not that he takes that long. He doesn’t do anything until his turn. That’s the frustrating part. But he’s not the only one that does it out here.”

Holmes however, is being sympathised by the US Open winner. The 37-year-old Holmes who started the day on the leader board, shot a final-round 87 – 16 over par – to move from third place at the start of the day to fourth last on six over.

“He had a rough day, but JB is a slow player,” Koepka admitted. “We were on pace for 13 holes, but if I’m in the group we’re going to be on pace no matter what. But there were some times where I thought it was slow.”
