Coach Butch Harmon has handed Rickie Fowler some brutal advice by telling him to "get rid of those Kardashians" and get back to being a golf pro.
World No 8 Fowler has finished as runner-up at The Open and US Open in 2014, but is still waiting to win his first major title.
The 28-year-old is a social media star who said earlier this week he probably hasn't achieved as much as he would have liked.
And his coach Harmon has been scathing of Fowler's lifestyle by telling him in no uncertain words to lose the celebrity lifestyle and start winning big tournaments.
He told Sky Sports: "We had a big conversation at the end of the year last year and he didn't like it. I said 'you gotta decide are you going to be a Kardashian or are you going to be a golf pro? You're the king of social media, you're all over these snap chats and all these things.
"You need to reach down and grab your ears and get your head out of your you know what and get back to work, get your body in shape.
"He's got a trainer he works out tremendously with and he's worked unbelievable with his golf swing. He's gone back to winning tournaments again - get rid of those Kardashians.
"The young man is ready to go. Whether it happens today or not, he's going to win some majors but this would be a good time to start."
