‘It’s just the three of us’:Brooks Koepka showed no mercy in his criticism of teammate Matthew Wolff.

On Sunday, Brooks Koepka left the LIV event in Jeddah the same way he did a year ago: as champion.

But before defeating Talor Gooch in a two-hole playoff to win the 2023 LIV individual championship, the always outspoken Koepka continued to criticize Smash GC teammate Matthew Wolff.

With the LIV Tag Team Championship taking place next week in Miami, Koepka was asked Saturday to describe his feelings about his team, which includes brother Chase, Jason Kokrak and Wolff.
“There were only three people on our team,” Koepka said.

“Obviously I mean my brother, I’m quite close to him and then – I enjoyed being with Jay [Kokrak] for a while – I’ve been quite close to Jay for about three years.

“I like being with him. He is a good player, super talented. He’s fun to be around and he’s been playing pretty well this year. Well, I can’t say anything bad about him.
Koepka boasting about his relationship with his younger brother and Kokrak is one thing, but saying there are only “three of us on our team” takes his war of words with Wolff up a notch new.

As a reminder, the spat between the two LIV teammates began earlier this year when Koepka questioned Wolff’s work ethic, going as far as to say he abandoned the 24-year-old and that “ wasted talent”. »

“I mean, when you give up, you give up and things like that, that’s not competition,” Koepka said. “I’m not a big fan of that. You don’t work hard.
It is very difficult. It’s very difficult to even have a team dynamic when there’s a guy who doesn’t want to work, a guy who doesn’t put in the effort, he’ll give up, break the club, decline, get physically worse.
language. , It is very difficult. I almost gave up on him – a lot of talent, but I mean, wasted talent.

Wolff, who has enjoyed varying levels of success on the PGA Tour, has been outspoken about his mental health struggles over the years, with many believing a move to LIV could is a new beginning.

But the former Oklahoma State star hasn’t been able to find his form with Smash GC, and recently finished 27th in LIV’s individual season standings, meaning he’s at risk of losing his spot in the league unless he has a contract.

The most recent comments from Koepka aren’t likely to inspire much confidence in Wolff, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens next.
