J.B. Holmes Lit Up By Peers After Slow Play

Tags: holmes slow shot

Yesterday at Torrey Pines it took four minutes and ten seconds for J.B. Holmes to ultimately decide to lay up on the par-5 18th hole.

Four minutes and ten seconds. TO LAY UP.

Holmes was down two shots and would have needed an eagle to tie Jason Day, who was already in the clubhouse. Meanwhile, Alex Noren, who needed a birdie to win, was left waiting.

And waiting.

And waiting.

And waiting.

Holmes took so long that even the fans on the 18th hole started pleading him to take the shot already.

But the fans weren’t the only ones that had an issue with J.B.’s indecision, his peers to took to Twitter to express their dismay.

That last point made by Ken Duke is the best of them all. Do rules apply to everyone or not?

If this is Kevin Na, someone with a reputation of playing slow, playing the 18th instead of J.B. Holmes, does an official say something?

Not to mention, the TOUR already has a reputation of being excruciatingly slow. So you would think they would be over-sensitive to this kind of nonsense.

Meanwhile, when J.B. Holmes was asked if he regretted the way he played the 18th by Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner, he responded, “No, I was trying to win.”

You didn’t win, J.B. In fact, you may have lost more than just the tournament, but also the respect of your peers.
