LIV Golf star FORCED OUT of Brooks Koepka's team and WIPED from team socials!

LIV Golf star Matt Wolff has left Brooks Koepka's Smash GC after "vibes were off and they didn't mesh" according to Barstool Sports' Dan Rapaport. 

Wolff, 24, is still pictured on the banner of the official Smash GC Twitter page, but his name has been removed from the team bio, which includes US PGA champion Koepka, his brother Chase and Jason Kokrak. 

NEW: Brooks Koepka said to be "actively recruiting" PGA Tour star and major champion to join Smash GC

The same story applies on Instagram, as you can see from the images below. 

UPDATE: Why Brooks Koepka axed Matthew Wolff from his LIV Golf team

According to Rapaport, Wolff is "no longer a member of Smash and he's looking for a new LIV Golf team."

Rapaport adds, according to his source, "vibes were off and they didn't mesh."

One-time PGA Tour winner Wolff switched to LIV Golf last season but was soon traded from Phil Mickelson's HyFlyers GC over to Koepka's Smash GC for 2023. 

It marks the second time in a week that Smash GC has been in the headlines following a crazy rumour that Nike is contemplating a shock $2 billion takeover of Koepka's team. 

The rumour explained how Nike is planning to re-name the team as Swoosh

Wolff entered LIV Golf record books last season when he made the very first hole-in-one on the circuit. 

That came in Boston, and to the hilarious cries of wolves in the background!

Wolff started this season well with a tie for seventh in the season-opening Mayakoba tournament, and he followed it up with a tie for 10th in Tucson and tie for fifth in Orlando. 

But the American then slumped to a tie for 44th in Adelaide, tie for 41st in in Singapore and a tie for 30th in Tulsa. 

Wolff was then forced to withdraw during last week's Washington DC event due to injury. 

He carded rounds of 73 and 78 before declaring himself unfit to compete in the third and final round on Sunday. 

As all three reserve players were already competing in DC last week, Koepka's Smash GC had to continue with just three players in the final round. 

It was therefore no surprise that Smash GC finished bottom of the team leaderboard in 12th place last week. 

According to the popular Golf Lover UK account on Twitter, Asian Tour's International Series leader Andy Ogletree, who has impressed in super sub appearances on LIV Golf recently including a tie for sixth in DC, could be set to replace Wolff on Smash GC. 

LIV Golf has a bit of a break now and will next return after the US Open at famous former DP World Tour and Ryder Cup venue, Valderrama, from June 30 to July 2.

The Saudi-backed golf league is now half way through its season having completed seven events. 

Dustin Johnson's 4Aces GC are currently out in front in the team standings as they look to defend their crown, while Talor Gooch, who was traded from the 4Aces to Bubba Watson's RangeGoats GC this season, leads the individual season standings.
