‘I’ve given up on him’ – Brooks Koepka accuses LIV teammate of being a quitter in scathing attack

Published

on

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Brooks Koepka ripped his current Smash GC teammate Matthew Wolff. The five-time major champion said he’s “given up on” the 24-year-old Wolff.

“I mean, when you quit on your round, you give up and stuff like that, that’s not competing,” said Koepka. “I’m not a big fan of that. You don’t work hard. It’s very tough. It’s very tough to have even like a team dynamic when you’ve got one guy that won’t work, one guy is not going to give any effort, he’s going to quit on the course, break clubs, gets down, bad body language, it’s very tough. I’ve basically given up on him—a lot of talent, but I mean the talent’s wasted.”

LIV Golf surely had high expectations for the former Oklahoma State star, but he’s disappointed so far on LIV, particularly this season. In his past five starts, he hasn’t finished better than 34th, and had to withdraw at LIV DC due to an undisclosed injury.

There were reports of a rift between Koepka and Wolff after Wolff’s WD, with rumors swirling that Wolff would be changing teams to satisfy Koepka.

“I’m here, you know, trying to do what I can to play the best round of golf and that’s going to help the team,” Wolff told Sports Illustrated. “I’m just here to focus on myself and try to play some good golf and that’s what everyone’s really trying to do, because golf is trying to put the best score up and then if that helps your team it’s great.”

When SI asked if Wolff wants to play for another team, he walked away without answering.

An offseason could give the duo time to mend fences, but as of now, it appears Wolff will be playing for a different team in 2024.

Smash GC and the rest of the LIV Golf roster are set to tee it up Friday at Centurion Club outside of London for the second consecutive year.

Ben An shares his thoughts on LIV pros not being able to play in the Presidents Cup

Published

on

While speaking with GolfWRX, Ben An discussed whether or not he believes LIV players should be allowed to play in the Presidents Cup.

“Well, it would be a great addition to the team, but I feel like we’re missing Cam (Smith), (Joaquin) Niemann and maybe Dean Burmester. He’s been playing great and I saw last week he was playing some good golf.”

An added that the absence of the LIV pros is also a blow to the U.S. side as well, but that the rules are the rules.

“But, you know, it’s just the, just the rules of now, right? You know, it sucks for not having the team, but it’s kind of the same for the U.S. team, right? They’re missing a few players as well.

“We need to have a win in our national team, but it’s up to Mike and the PGA tour to decide. So it’s run by the PGA Tour, not the PGA of America, like the Ryder Cup.”

However, An stated that he doesn’t expect any changes to the rules for the upcoming 2024 Presidents Cup.

“So, you know, as of now, I mean, this year, I don’t see it happening. But hopefully, like I said, we’ll figure something out, we’ll figure this merger, or something out in the next few years and hopefully see them in the team because they, like you said, they’re great players, they will miss out.

“But I think even the teams we have right now, I think it’s pretty good. Playing in Canada will help us this year, you know, we’ll see what happens…We’ll miss them, but hopefully we have a strong enough team to compete against the U.S. team this year.”

Check out the interview in full below.
