Brooks Koepka has radical plan to speed up golf

Brooks Koepka Slow Play Us Pga

Great news for everybody who hates slow play: Brooks Koepka is in your corner.

The 29-year-old, who defends the US PGA Championship this week, is so exasperated with the amount of time it takes to play 18 holes that he has come up with a somewhat radical way to fix it.

Play fewer holes.

Speaking on the latest Pardon My Take podcast, Koepka suggested making rounds shorter.

• John Daly hits back at critics of his buggy

• Why is Rickie Fowler growing a mullet?

"Nobody wants to spend five-and-a-half hours out there," he said. "I would just make it 15 holes, 14 holes. Then you get to go to the 19th hole a little bit quicker.

"It gets boring from hole five through 12. You’re just like, ‘Where am I right now?’ I literally can’t tell you what happened during those holes. You kind of black out. Everything is so repetitive.”

• Another Chamblee / Koepka feud is brewing...

This isn’t the first time Koepka has hit out at slow play.

Earlier this year, he described as “kind of embarrassing”, adding: “I just don't understand how it takes a minute and 20 seconds, a minute and 15 seconds to hit a golf ball. It's not that hard.”
