Bryson DeChambeau may be at the receiving end of criticism for his slow-play antics on the PGA Tour last week, but he is NOT the only big-name player taking his time out there. Far from it. 

A golf fan took to Twitter on Tuesday to post a video of last week's Northern Trust winner Patrick Reed taking just as long as DeChambeau did on the green last week at an impressive 2 minutes 20 seconds to pull the trigger.

The video in question sees Reed standing over a lengthy 35-foot uphill putt during the Wyndham Championship two weeks ago, as opposed to DeChambeau's 10-foot attempt that went viral during the Northern Trust.

DeChambeau was seen spending 2 minutes 20 seconds over his putt on the 8th green, and he then took more than three minutes to play a 70-yard wedge shot, spending the majority of the time pacing it off to see where the pin was located. 

The clips of DeChambeau went so viral in fact that even 'Good Morning Britain' host and former newspaper editor Piers Morgan has urged DeChambeau to quit playing golf as a result of his "snail-like antics."

But as outspoken golf analyst Brandel Chamblee explains in his comment above, it's not just the American duo of DeChambeau and Reed having a laugh out there.

Their compatriot JB Holmes is arguably the leader of the pack.

Last month at The Open at Royal Portrush, JB Holmes was blasted by golf fans over all four days for his pace of play, and even his final-round playing partner and World No.1 Brooks Koepka had seen enough. 

"He doesn't do anything until it's his turn," said Koepka of Holmes, who admitted there are a select group of players on the PGA Tour who are contributing to slow play, "but he's not the only one that does it out here."

Holmes, 37, was in the firing line again earlier this season when winning the Genesis Open in February, with broadcasters and golf fans questioning his horrendous pace of play.

"You'd purposely bogey the final hole if you knew you were going to be paired with Holmes the next day," tweeted one golf fan. 

Another recent episode of slow play surfaced in the final of the US Girls Junior match when Jilian Bourdage took 1 minute 25 seconds over a tiny three-foot putt - WATCH HERE
