The final regular event of LIV Golf is underway in Jeddah. After a fierce first round, the second round saw the lead change hands. The defending champion Brooks Koepka has now found himself on top of the standings and looks set to retain the crown. However, what he said after the first 18 holes is generating buzz as he took another dig at Matthew Wolff.

The two Smash GC teammates have not seen eye-to-eye since Koepka’s remark regarding his performances in July. Wolff would fire back at those comments and claim that he thought his captain had given up on him. It seems his thoughts are correct, as the current PGA Championship winner completely ignored him when asked about brotherhood on the team.

The Smash GC consists of Brooks Koepka as their captain, his own brother Chase Koepka, Jason Kokrak, and Wolff. However, the answer given by the five-time major champion has left the fans stunned. It has perhaps signaled the end of Wolff’s time with his team.

“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,” Koepka was quoted by Golfweek. Watch his comment regarding this situation from the tweet shared on X below:

Matthew Wolff’s performances this season

It is clear that Matthew Wolff has not been able to enjoy himself on the greens lately. The year 2023 has not been an easy one for him, as he has struggled to get going. These performances were the reason behind Brooks Koepka’s stunning remark. It now seems more likely that Wolff will not be playing for them in the next season.

Speaking of this season, out of the 12 LIV Golf events, he has only managed three top-10 finishes. The highest of these was fifth during the events in Orlando and Greenbrier. The latter came after the relationship between him and Koepka had turned sour. During that event in Greenbrier, he would fire a low round score of 61, giving signs of a slight recovery. Following this, he recorded low scores again as his momentum washed away.

Currently, he sits at 25th in the seasonal rankings, one spot below the Open Zone. This means that he does not face the danger of being relegated, unlike Koepka’s own brother Chase, who could be cut down from the team if things don’t turn around. The question now among the minds of fans is which team Wolff will play for next season and how he will turn the tide.
