Brooks Koepka fires more shots at Matt Wolff en route to LIV Golf Jeddah win

It's fair to say Brooks Koepka does not get on with Matt Wolff right now.

Brooks Koepka has fired yet more shots at his Smash GC teammate team member Matt Wolff en route to successfully defending LIV Golf Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

Koepka's apparent dislike of Wolff began back at LIV Golf London in June when the five-time major champion unloaded on him. 

"I've basically given up on him," Koepka told SI at Centurion Club, England. "A lot of talent, but I mean the talent's wasted." 

Wolff then responded, telling the Guardian's Ewan Murray the comments were "beyond disappointing".

Fast forward to the final regular LIV Golf event of the season in Saudi Arabia this week, which Koepka went on to win for a second consecutive season following playoff victory over 2023 LIV Golf Individual champion Talor Gooch, and the former World No.1 has gone in on him once again. 

Koepka was pressed by a pool of reporters on the "brotherhood" in his four-man Smash team, which includes his own brother Chase Koepka and former PGA Tour stars Wolff and Jason Kokrak

On Friday, Koepka said: 

"There’s only three of us on our team. I mean, obviously my brother, I’m pretty tight with him, and then—I’ve enjoyed being around Jay for the last—I’ve been pretty close with Jay for maybe the last three years. I’ve enjoyed being around him. He’s a good player, super talented. It’s been fun to be around him, and he’s played pretty solid this year. Yeah, I can’t say anything bad about him."

Let's just say there is 99.9% chance that Wolff will be traded ahead of the 2024 season.

Koepka seemingly cannot get rid of his compatriot quick enough as Smash GC enters the season finale in Miami next week. 

Another headache that now faces Koepka on Smash GC is that his brother Chase has been relegated from LIV Golf along with Jed Morgan, Sihwan Kim and James Piot. 

It will therefore be very interesting to see who the Smash captain brings into his team for 2024. 

Incidentally, Wolff finished LIV Golf Jeddah on 2-under par in T38, while Chase Koepka finished dead last on 6-over par in 48th. 

Kokrak was 7-under par in T19, and Brooks Koepka of course finished 14-under par before going on to successfully defend his title and claim his third LIV Golf title. 

Smash GC finished seventh in the team event at Jeddah. 

Koepka finished the regular LIV Golf season in third place.

Gooch won it and an $18m bonus, with an angry Cameron Smith in second.
