WILLETT APOLOGISES FOR BROTHER’S RANT AT US FANS
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.
