A CON­TRO­VER­SIAL com­men­tary in­sult­ing US Ryder Cup sup­port­ers writ­ten by the brother of Masters cham­pion Danny Wil­lett prompted an apol­ogy yes­ter­day from the English­man mak­ing his Europe team de­but. Pete Wil­lett, writ­ing for the web­site Na­tion­al­Club­Golfer.com, de­scribed Amer­i­can fans as “those fat, stupid, greedy, class­less bas­tards.” An­other sec­tion un­der the sub­head­ing “Bas­tards” al­luded to “the type of golfer that’s a vice-cap­tain for Team USA.” Call­ing US sup­port­ers a “bay­ing mob of im­be­ciles” and “a gig­gling group of repro­bates,” he added, “Team Europe needs to shut those groupies up. They need to si­lence the pudgy, base­ment-dwelling ir­ri­tants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer, paus­ing between mouth­fuls of hot­dog so they can scream ‘Baba booey’ un­til their jelly faces turn red. They need to stun the an­gry, un­washed, Make Amer­ica Great Again swarm, des­per­ately grip­ping their con­cealed­carry com­pen­sators and belt­ing out a minierec­tion in­duc­ing ‘mashed potato,’ hop­ing to im­press their cousin. They need to smash the ob­nox­ious dads, with their shiny teeth, Lego man hair, med­i­cated ex-wives, and re­sent­ful chil­dren. Squeezed into their cargo shorts and boat­ing shoes, they’ll bel­low ‘get in the hole’ whilst high-fiv­ing all the other mem­bers of the Den­tists’ Big Game Hunt So­ci­ety.” Af­ter the venom flowed, it was Wil­lett the ma­jor winner who was hailed last April at Au­gusta Na­tional, be­com­ing his brother’s peace­keeper.
