Brooks Koepka and Matthew Wolff play for the Smash GC team at LIV Golf. Koepka is the team captain, but seems to be at odds with Wolff.
Wolff recently turned in a forgettable performance during a golf tournament in Spain, which marked the fifth straight time he had a disappointing performance.
In May, he withdrew from an event outside Washington, DC, where he was two spots out of last place after 36 holes.

Koepka suggested that Wolff doesn’t work hard enough.
«I’m not a big fan of that. You don’t work hard. It’s very difficult. It’s very difficult to even have a team dynamic when you have a guy who won’t work to put in any effort, he’s going to give up on the field, he breaks sticks, gets discouraged, bad body language. It’s very difficult. I’ve basically given up on him, a lot of talent, but I mean the talent is wasted.»
Wolff’s season started on a good note, with the golfer finishing in the top 10 on three separate occasions.
During an April event in Florida, Wolff finished in the top 5. The Smash GC team took second place, the best result of the season.
After that, things started to go off the rails for the former PGA Tour winner. Wolff tied for 44th at one event in Australia and followed that performance with a 41st at his next event in Singapore.
Following his final round withdrawal at the event near Washington, DC, Wolff was suddenly knocked out of some of the Smash GCs. social media platforms.
«I’m here, you know, trying to do what I can to play the best round of golf and that will help the team,» Wolff told Sports Illustrated. «I’m just here to focus on myself and try to play good golf. And that’s what everybody’s really trying to do because golf is trying to get the best score. And so if that helps your team, it’s great». «
