Koepka unhappy with slow players
Brooks Koepka says the officials need to crack down on slow play this season after revealing his frustration about the issue.
The world number two has been very outspoken on certain issues facing the game of golf and recently discussed the debate surrounding the amount of time it takes compatriot Bryson DeChambeau to take shots.
Koepka, who also slammed Sergio Garcia after he was disqualified from last week's Saudi International, believes the priorities on tour are mixed up following some harsh penalties for players that were supposedly helped to line up a shot by their caddie.
"It is frustrating. There's a lot of slow players, a lot of them are, kind of, the very good players, which is kind of the problem," he said in an interview with Sirius XM.
"I think it's weird how we have rules where we have to make sure it's dropping from knee height or the caddie can't be behind you, and then they also have a rule where you have to hit it in 40 seconds, but that one's not enforced.
"You enforce some but you don't enforce the others. [Slow players are] breaking the rules but no one ever has the balls to actually penalise them."
Koepka also revealed the tactics he uses when playing in an attempt to quicken up play, adding: "I just go to the restroom and just kind of chill in there for five minutes, so we get on the clock and now we're playing at my pace. It's probably not the right thing but it is what I do."
