Rickie Fowler got over the line at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, while Dustin Johnson won the inaugural Saudi International, in a truly chaotic week in the golfing world, which saw players call out the USGA, and Sergio Garcia DQ’d for attacking the greens in Saudi Arabia.

Here are some things you may have missed though, and some of the quirkier moments from the world of golf dished out in the Twittersphere over the past seven days.

Tiger & Jack Tee It Up With The President

Donald Trump appeared very happy to tee it up alongside two of the greats of the game…

…and even gave some insight into Tiger’s round…

Sergio’s Meltdown

Sergio Garcia may have been DQ’d for abusing the greens at the Saudi International, but here’s footage of him the day before losing the plot in the bunkers.

Dumped Clubs

While also at the Saudi International, an unknown pro decided to dump four of their clubs after a round. Must be something in the water over there.

Miller Bows Out

Johnny Miller made his final broadcast appearance on Saturday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Here are some of his finest moments from the booth…

…while Roger Maltbie gave this emotional tribute to Miller. Yeah, I know, all the feels, right?

Champ’s Shoes

In case you missed it, Cameron Champ rocked up at TPC Scottsdale wearing odd shoes. The reason? Champ was honoring Black History Month.

Kuchar Channels His Inner Bryson

Sorry, but what on earth are you talking about Matt?

        That question is rhetorical. You already know who he was referring to.

Brooks Koepka expresses his frustration over J.B. Holmes’ slow play at The Open

Published

on

Brooks Koepka began 2019 by calling out golf’s authorities for their lack of action over the slow play issue surrounding the game, and on Sunday at the Open Championship, the 29-year-old appeared visibly agitated over the speed of playing partner J.B. Holmes.

The two men teed off at 1.37 PM local time in the final round, and from their opening tee shots of the day, which Holmes would take significantly longer to play than his compatriot, it appeared the two could be in for an uncomfortable day with each other.

For the most part during Sunday’s final round, on the course, Koepka was to keep whatever frustrations which were bubbling under the surface to himself.

However, coming off the 12th green, the four-time major champ was seen staring at a rules official while motioning to his imaginary wristwatch, and on another occasion, the American looked less than impressed as his playing partner went through his deliberate putting routine.

Following their round, the 29-year-old was quick to point out that Holmes is far from being the only slow player on Tour, but explained what his biggest gripe was with the Kentuckian on Sunday at Royal Portrush – his inability to prepare when it wasn’t his turn.

“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. 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’ nightmare performance didn’t help his pace of play as he struggled mightily in the harsh conditions during Sunday’s final round. The 37-year-old shot an 87 – 16 over par to move from third place at the start of the day to fourth last on six over.

Koepka had some sympathy for Holmes’ struggles in the wind and rain in Northern Ireland, but despite this, the Florida native made it clear that he still found the pace at times too slow.

“He had a rough day, but JB is a slow player. 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.”

Koepka’s final round of 74 secured a T4 finish for the four-time major champ to complete an exceptional year at the major tournaments which included a win at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May.
