Brooks Koepka - a man not known for outspokenness - didn't mince words when presented with the opportunity to comment on the slow play in golf.

"I just don’t understand how it takes a minute and 20 seconds, a minute and 15 to hit a golf ball; it’s not that hard," Koepka told Michael Weston of Golf Monthly.

"It’s always between two clubs; there’s a miss short, there’s a miss long. It really drives me nuts especially when it’s a long hitter because you know you’ve got two other guys or at least one guy that’s hitting before you so you can do all your calculations; you should have your numbers," he added.

The discussion stems from a video that surfaced last weekend of Bryson DeChambeau at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, who took approximately 70 seconds to calculate the exact yardage and hit the ball. Golfers typically have 40 seconds before slow-play penalties are enforced.

"Guys are already so slow it’s kind of embarrassing. I just don’t get why you enforce some things and don’t enforce others."

In the same tournament, China's Haotong Li was handed a questionable two-stroke penalty for having his caddie line him up over a putt. It cost Li nearly $100,000, which European Tour commissioner Keith Pelley called "grossly unfair."

Here is the video of DeChambeau:
