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.

“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.
