In Ryder Cup Question, Brooks Koepka Showed 'Everything That's Wrong With The US Team

DP World Tour pro Eddie Pepperell criticized Brooks Koepka's response to a press conference question about who would have the ball and win the Ryder Cup.

Pepperell said Koepka's answer showed that he doesn't understand what it means to be a genuine team player.

Pepperell said Koepka's answer would have been perceived as a slight against his teammates.

Pepperell said other Ryder Cup players with a similar high profile would not have given the same answer.

Koepka finished the Ryder Cup with 1.5 points from three sessions.

Pepperell said Koepka's lack of team spirit has contributed to his disappointing Ryder Cup record.

Pepperell also criticized the lack of competitive action for US players in the weeks leading up to the Ryder Cup.

Pepperell said the four to five weeks off was "inexplicable" and that US players needed more competitive freshness.

Pepperell said he believes the US team needs to change its culture and become more cohesive.
