Would’ve been great if Kostis asked him at the end..’ so hey...why don’t you get yourself ready to play...check your green book while you’re waiting for others to putt?’ 

Especially since they commented on air that it took him 55 seconds to hit that putt (on 12 or thereabouts) from 3’ that he jacked 6 feet past the hole.

J.B. Holmes is the guy in the left most lane, driving 30 because he is texting someone.

“You play in 25 mile an hour gusty winds and see how fast you play, when you’re playing for the kind of money and points that we’re playing for,” Holmes said.

What a dope. First of all, everybody played in the same conditions as you did and didn’t take an eternity or plum bob a 1’ putt. Second, the weather has no bearing on why you can’t be ready to hit when it’s your turn instead of standing there watching the other players then starting your routine only when it’s your turn. He doesn’t get it. Total dope.

I was not cheering for JB “Glacial-Pace” Holmes. It’s bad enough he plays slow, but to be indignant about it makes it worse. The NBA and NFL changed to a play clock and many whiners at the time thought it would ruin the game. But it did not. Time for the PGA to get a backbone and enforce it.

People are bombing JB for plumb bobbing his putts.  

As bad as Justin putted maybe he should have been doing that?

 

No.

JB Holmes was ranked 202 in strokes gained putting prior to the Genesis Open. Even after a great week where he gained like 8 strokes on the field in putting, he is still 105th and only barely gaining strokes on the field putting (.037)

Justin Thomas on the other hand was 83rd in strokes gained putting prior to the Genesis Open and moved up to 38th after this tournament, and is gaining .520 strokes on the field putting.

I didn't get to watch any of the tournament on Sunday. Was the JB Holmes group out of position?

I think it's a shame the PGA tour has no guts to enforce slow play penalties.  Start handing them out like a candy and they will start playing faster!

I'm only re-asking the question from the post just above yours to point out that under their current policy, they likely weren't even on the clock let alone in receipt of a "bad timing" or three.

The PGA Tour policy likely IS being enforced… it's just a bad, far too lenient policy.

I know this is off topic, but what can be done about this?

Over the weekend, I heard part of an interview with Koepka. They asked him what his approach to slow players is. (I don’t know when the interview had been recorded.) 

He said he slows waaaay down to deliberately put them on the clock. Then the group has to play at the pace he wants. (Until they catch up, presumably.)

I don’t know if anyone can verify that he’s done this.

Slow play is horrible, I hate it when I'm playing and I detest it when I'm watching it on TV.
Usually they can broadcast around it by showing other players hitting shots, but when it is in the leaders group they can't so much ignore what is happening.

When I posted before about wanting Holmes to win, I completely forgot about his slow play.  I enjoy his game, but yeah not a fan of slow play at all.

I hadn't heard that before...that's super passive aggressive but I kinda like it!!! Having to speed up is gonna rattle the slow player but picking up the pace to catch up is going to be Brooks normal pace...brilliant!!

    • If the flag had been improperly replaced by the group in front of him, or perhaps even left out and the flag actually assisted in the ball going in would you have NOT counted it? "Assholes in front of me left the flag out... I'm not counting it... bah humbug."  If a putt is rolling toward the edge of the hole and the hole is slightly damaged on that end and the damage helps the ball fall in, do you not count that? If you clearly miss a putt and it hits a spike mark and goes in anyway, do you not count that?  We've all had bad luck when playing golf; a ball that looks destined for the green hits a sprinkler head and bounces over the green into the trap, a putt heading for the heart of the hole hits somebody's sunflower seed husk and is diverted and misses, a beautifully struck tee shot that just catches that one twig and all of a sudden turns into a disaster. It happens. The OP can relish in the fact that he hit a great shot. But he asked the question (I think very wisely) and it looks like its not a hole in one. If you are going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules for this instance, are you also going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules when the outcome favors you as well?  I recently (while playing for an amount of money that mattered) skulled my gap wedge and it flew over the green heading for out of bounds, but it hit one of the white OB stakes and ricocheted back toward me and on to the edge of the green. I was happy to take that bit of luck. It would be wrong of me then to only accept the good luck and not deal with the bad luck. Should we change or ignore the rules and put my ball out of bounds, after all it was a terrible shot? Hitting a terrible shot and getting lucky is no different then hitting a great shot and getting unlucky. We should not change or ignore the rules in either case.   … I mean, really when it all comes down to it, isn't that kind of the point of golf? 
    • Understanding you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Have you contacted GA? Golfaholics Annonymus?
    • It can feel normal because we are used to it, but it never feels natural to me either.
    • Well it is not that easy. She has a legit gripe. I have seven full sets off Hogans and may be 26 loose Hogan irons. However the real problem is that I have an additional six hundred golf clubs and 30 old golf bags that also live in the basement. My addiction to collecting clubs over the years has caught up to me and is affecting her laundry process. And I don't want to be assigned those duties. Cutting down the herd is the way to go
    • 5am wake-up, shower, get ready for hour-long drive to the season's first 7am tee time with buddies I haven't seen in months...walk outside to 15 degree windchill and half an inch of snow.
