Brooks Koepka is not satisfied with slow play, which is an increasing problem at golf tournaments. Individuals have their own style of play, with which they either want to provoke their opponents, or they really need time. In any case, it causes anger among the fans of this sport, as well as the players.
Brooks Koepka said that such players should be fined, considering that they do not respect the rules. "There's a lot of guys out here that take their time," Koepka said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com "I think it is a problem.
Technically in the rule book it says you have 40 seconds to hit your shot. I think that's what it is. If you are taking over, technically you're breaking the rules, right? Honestly, I would start stroking guys. If you are going to take that long, you have to get stroked.
There are certain circumstances where the wind switches, something like that, it's understandable, but taking a while is I just think unnecessary."
Brooks Koepka gave a solution
Koepka believes that there is a solution to every problem.
Given that this is a problem that lasts longer and longer, the leaders of golf tournaments and organizations should find a solution for this. It is necessary that everyone has enough time. "I think you saw DP [World Tour], they did a shot clock event," Koepka added.
"I think it was a couple of years ago, if I'm right. I can't remember if anybody got clocked for it, but it would be interesting to see. I know if you follow guys around with a stopwatch this week, there will be plenty of guys that are over time and stuff like that, but I can't remember the last time anybody was stroked.
I remember the little kid at Augusta. I don't know if anybody has been stroked since. That's kind of the most recent one I can think of. There are some guys that probably definitely could be stroked."
