Brooks Koepka launched a foul-mouthed attack on British referee Mark Litton as the Ryder Cup turned ugly at Whistling Straits, writes DAVID FACEY.
Koepka turned on Litton and fellow official David Price after being denied a free drop and snarled: “If I break my f***ing wrist, it’s on both of you.”
The four-time Major champion was furious when he was not allowed to move his ball, after foursomes partner Daniel Berger carved his drive into a dense clump of grass.
Koepka, 31, claimed a drainage pipe was hindering his downsizing, and tried to argue it could lead to a serious injury.
Their opponents, Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm, came over to take a look as the delay dragged on, and so did European vice-captain Henrik Stenson.
Garcia took a few imaginary swings at the ball before leaving with a big grin on his face, while Stenson suggested the American pairing ‘might want to get a shovel’.
