Brooks Koepka Majors

Brooks Koepka has become the latest star to take a swipe at “easy” course setups on the PGA Tour.

The four-time major champion is playing in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and was asked about Austin Country Club after beating Erik van Rooyen in his first match.

"It's just nice to play a tough golf course," Koepka said.

• Phil Mickelson Masters call "not his decision"

"For whatever reason the golf course setups we played lately have been quite easy, so it's nice to play a little tougher golf course."

The issue of course setups has been a hot topic on the PGA Tour this season.

Kapalua was criticised after Cam Smith won the Sentry Tournament of Champions with an astonishing score of 34-under, while Jon Rahm was caught on camera voicing his displeasure at the American Express.

• DeChambeau and Pieters rules controversy

• Keegan Bradley roasted over bizarre routine

“Every golf course we played lately has been kind of soft and very gettable,” Koepka added

"I mean I thought Tampa [the Valspar Championship] was kind of set up a little easy.

"I don't know, it's kind of been a little bit of a theme over the last eight months."
