‘What the f**k you doing?’ – Former Masters champ tells Brooks Koepka to ‘get a life’

Published

on

Former Masters champion Ian Woosnam has launched a stinging attack on Brooks Koepka days before the U.S. take on Europe in the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Last week, Golf Digest published its exclusive interview with Koepka, where the 31-year-old aired his feelings on the Ryder Cup, calling the biennial event ‘a bit odd’ and that he finds the week ‘tough’.

Those comments angered former U.S. captain Paul Azinger who called on Brooks to relinquish his spot if he didn’t enjoy the competition. Now former European Captain Ian Woosnam has been the latest to hit out at the 4-time major champ.

Speaking at Ilkley Golf Club last week ahead of a Legends Tour event, the Welshman blasted the 31-year-old saying:

“The article Koepka has just done, that’s not nice for his team. It’s not good. He’s basically said, ‘I could do without this, it’s getting me out of my routine doing this’. “Christ almighty – get a life!”

Woosnam continued:

“If I was captain and it was one of my players, I’d be saying ‘What the f**k you doing?’ All this crap he’s got going with DeChambeau – is it that bad or is it just false? Either way, it’s not good for Stricker.”

The 2006 European Captain wasn’t exactly complimentary towards Brooks’ rival Bryson DeChambeau either and also accused Koepka of arrogance and shrugging off his peers.

“Who’d want to play with him (Bryson)? It wouldn’t surprise me if neither of them played before the singles. They’re already making excuses. You hear all this stuff last time between Dustin Johnson and Koepka. Is there something going on with Koepka?

Is he one of these guys who likes to stir everything? Is it arrogance? It’s almost like he’s shrugging them all off and saying I don’t want to be like you.”

The 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup kicks off Friday morning in Kohler, Wisconsin at the Pete Dye designed Whistling Straits.

    how many times did this little dude toss or slam down clubs while out playing on the course? Many is the answer, maybe he should look at his actions before he calls out another….Everyone has a right to be themselves, sure some are not real likable but without them how would we know what nice people are like?

    Koepa thinks that he is a football player that plays golf always posing as the tough guy, there is a reason he has no friends on tour.

    We’re talking about a bunch of millionaires here. Of course, some will act like the spoiled rich kids they are. Others act a bit more mature. They are all great golfers. How about we focus on the task at hand, and set the drama aside for a while? Bryson IS difficult to pair with because he plays a different game than the rest of them. That’s why you may not see him in the 4 ball. There are already two groups that you can bet will play together. Cantlay and Schaffle, Thomas and Spieth.

    Sick of Koepka, always has a problem with someone or some thing.
    Shut up and play.
    Went to event with both brooks and Bryson, saw them both up close
    Bryson was good to the fans and friendly, brooks was not
    Agree he had a good run but lots of flashes in the pan these days
    Let’s see what both do this week

    Did anyone even read the article? He was asked how its different from other tournaments and pretty simply said its different and out of the normal routine. I don’t know. Seems like a bunch of ridiculous sensationalizing. See below for the actual Q&A referenced.

    For virtually all of your career, you get to set the schedule and make the rules and be responsible for your own performance. How does that mesh with the Ryder Cup experience? Is it strange being on a team?

    It’s different. It’s hectic. It’s a bit odd, if I’m honest. I don’t want to say it’s a bad week. We’re just so individualized, and everybody has their routine and a different way of doing things, and now, it’s like, OK, we have to have a meeting at this time or go do this or go do that. It’s the opposite of what happens during a major week. If I break down a major week, it’s so chill. You wouldn’t even believe me. I go to the course. I play nine holes. I go work out. Other than that, I’m sitting and watching TV, taking my mind off golf with relaxing stuff. The physical part, I can handle. The mental side, you have to be able to turn it off. Sometimes, the power comes from being able to turn it on. But for me, I get power from turning it off. That’s been a huge, huge thing for me that I really haven’t understood until the past five or six years of my career.

      Agree. Sounds like Koepka is just an introverted guy. People seem to just hate introverted sports stars if do not appease the public with an extroverted persona. In fact, most pro golfers are introverted, so it is really a moot issue. He has said a few controversial things, but what pro hasn’t over their career. I could care less. Personally, I just want to watch great golf and forget all the gossipy fluff stuff.

    Koepka is being attacked by defenders of the faith because they can’t support a fellow professional golfer who speaks the truth. Koepka revealed his feelings. He didn’t tell other golfers how they should feel about the Ryder Cup.
    PGA Tour golf is a lonely tough gig Week after week of competing against 72 or 144 of the best. It’s a job that players like Koepka are committed to. So of course a bit annual team event of match play is quite different and feels different. Bravo to Koepka for sharing with the fans just how it feels to him. That doesn’t mean he is going to let his team down.

    • Tim Johnson

      Sep 22, 2021 at 10:22 am

      Give me a freaking break!!! Speaking the truth is what we hope for from our professional athletes but timing is a critical point in this equation. Dont speak like this about a team event right before a team event. Be a team player and look forward to one week out of their “tough gig” to spend some time for the country. Stop being whining little babies.

      PGA being a lonely tough gig is a laugh as well. I travel 95% of my time for my job and I dont have the ability to fly my family with me. It is a lonely gig. PGA players are not lonely – They make so much money now that they can fly their entire entourage with them. They are not traveling alone anymore. This is not the 80’s anymore.

      Either way – Brooks is definitely not a team player and would never be on a team sport. He is about one person and golf is that perfect sport with him. I just cannot wait for him to disappear so we can enjoy the players that love to play this great game. Disappear and go on your vacations with your wife.

    Sep 22, 2021 at 7:05 am

    While Koepka and DeChambeau act like two sides of the same douche coin, it’s difficult to pull for Koepka. He always acts like he wishes he was somewhere else, and seems upset that, while he feels he could’ve been a pro athlete in other sports, was forced into golf.

    Just… get the f*ck over it, man. If you don’t like what you’re doing, no one’s forcing you to be there. Go try out for another sport. Skip the Ryder and President Cups. Just don’t act like someone’s holding a gun to your head to do any of this, then act like a petulant child about all of it.

    Brooks Koepka is a sissy trying to act like a tough guy. He’s so caught up in his act that he can’t see out. Other than his ability to hit a golf ball well, he’s a nothing wishing he was something other than a full-on DB. Guys like him pick their victims carefully, in the case of Bryson. He knows that Bryson is fragile. I’d like to see him go after someone who can take it. In the meantime, quit undermining your team you little man.

Bryson and Brooks among golfers spotted at Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder heavyweight classic

Published

on

Last night offered up one of the greatest heavyweight boxing clashes of the modern era, with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder completing their trilogy, and it was a fight that had several PGA Tour professionals gripped.

Bryson DeChambeau was one of those who wasn’t going to miss out on the epic clash, who posted his evening’s excitement to his Instagram stories.

Bryson was even asked for a prediction before the showdown, and the 28-year-old backed Tyson Fury, who eventually would prevail in the 11th round with a knockout victory.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau, and Ian Poulter were also at the fight, all posting to their Instagram, with DJ’s fiancee Paulina even capturing the knockout punch.

 

As it turns out, last night’s victor Tyson Fury also has an impressive golf swing, as you can see from the video below of him piping a drive over 300 yards.

Tiger Woods photographed back on golf course with son Charlie

Published

on

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on Tiger Woods’ rehabilitation after his single-car accident earlier this year, but on Saturday, two photographs emerged which show the 15-time major champion’s recovery seemingly going very well.

The post, widely shared by TWLegion, shows Woods watching his son Charlie on the course with now just a sleeve on his right leg and with a club in hand.

The photos have thrilled golf fans, with many now buoyed into believing a comeback is very much on the cards. Eagle-eyed supporters even caught sight of Charlie’s Puma golf shoes, with some joking that he’s been spending too much time in Rickie Fowler’s company!

At the Ryder Cup, Captain Steve Stricker told media that Woods’ focus was on making a playing comeback again, and this update looks to have provided even more encouragement that the 82-time PGA Tour winner may well do just that.
