Day 4 at The Open Championship was a pretty brutal outing for just about everyone. But after being subjected to a firsthand look at JB Holmes frustratingly long outing, Brooks Koepka felt he had to talk about it.

Speaking to the media after finishing fourth at The Open, Koepka was brutally honest about how frustrating it was to golf with Holmes. He complained that Holmes would not even start preparing for the hole until it was his turn to hit, dragging it out in the process.

Koepka expressed his frustration that Holmes simply would not do anything until it was his turn. However, he conceded that Holmes was not the only one guilty of doing so.

Holmes had a meltdown of epic proportions, going 16 over par on the day to drop from third to start the day, to 67th overall in the final standings.

Video from the course showed how frustrated Koepka was getting with Holmes' lack of urgency.

Suffice it to say, Koepka probably won't be inviting Holmes to a summer barbecue anytime soon.

But Koepka had a rough outing of his own, going +3 on the day - his first time going over par in the entire tournament. He finished at -6 overall, in a tie for fourth with Lee Westwood.

It certainly wasn't a good day for the overwhelming majority of golfers on the course. Only nine golfers did better than one under par on the entire day.
