Ryder Cup super villain Patrick Cantlay was reportedly excused from the gala dinner at the start of the week because of neck pain.
Per Todd Lewis, the pain in his neck has caused him trouble sleeping and so he was allowed by U.S. captain Zach Johnson to rest up.
Lewis further reports that it is folly to suggest there is a split in the Team USA locker room.
Sky Sports reported Cantlay believes players competing in the Ryder Cup deserve to be compensated and was not wearing a Team USA as a protest.
Cantlay refused to say 'yes or no' when later asked that question but suggested it was ridiculous that going hatless was a protest.
It didn't fit, Cantlay said, and he had planned not to wear one all week.
Cantlay was was goaded by thousands of European fans on day two of the 2023 Ryder Cup who waved their hats at the American.
When Cantlay sank the winning putt in his match with Wyndham Clark against Rory McIlroy and Matthew Fitzpatrick it sparked ugly scenes that spilled into the car park.
European captain Donald said he would talk to McIlroy before commenting further on the incident.
