With an outside chance to win, JB Holmes stood over his second shot for an eternity on the final hole of the Farmers Insurance Open and then laid up!
All the while, leader Alex Noren, only needing a birdie on the hole to seal the victory, had to stand there and endure this selfish behavior.
While the world waited, and the fans booed, JB JHolmes stood there with his finger up his nose, unaffected. He couldn’t have cared less. Don’t believe me? Here’s a quote from him…
“A lot of old habits kick in when you’re under pressure,” Holmes said. “You’re playing for $1 million. If somebody thinks I’m slow, or taking long, I don’t care. Personally, I don’t want to take that long. I’m working on that. I would rather be slow and win than rush something, hit a bad shot and not win.” – JB Holmes, GOLF.com, June 3, 2008
That’s right, TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT. Nearly TEN years ago.
So, JB, how long do you plan on “working on” your slow play?
He has no interest in speeding up. What a jerk. – The Head Fanatic
