Danny Willett Ryder Cup 2016
In Ryder Cup 2016 Darren Clarke has spoken anger after the brother of Danny Willett used an online column to attack American fans in a allegedly light-hearted way that has hugely backfire
Pete Willett shot to prominence by virtue of his comedic Twitter coverage of his brother winning the Masters in April. Yet within days of the start of the 41st Ryder Cup 2016, Willett has stirred argument with an article saying that Europe “need to silence the chubby, basement-house, irritants, stuffed on cookie cash and pissy beer, pausing between mouthfuls of hot dog so they can scream ‘Baba booey’ until their jelly faces spin red”.
He continual: “They need to shock the angry, unwashed, Make America Great Again groupvery much gripping their hidden-carry compensators and belting out a mini-erection inducing ‘mash potato,’ eager to impress their cousin.

“They need to smash the horrible dads, with their shiny teeth, Lego man hair, medicated ex-wives, and angry children. squeeze into their load shorts and boating shoes, they’ll bellow ‘get in the gap’ whilst high-fiving all the other members of the Dentists’ Big Game Hunt Society.”
It will be interesting to see how Danny Willett is treated by the home swarm when the Ryder Cup 2016 begins on Friday. His brother, writing for national, by Zoom Masti sports also referred to US supporters as “cretins” and “fat, stupid, greedy, classless, bastards”.
Clarke, Europe’s captain, and Danny Willett, are critically unamused. Clarke said on Wednesday: “I just was made aware of the article about an hour ago. I haven’t seen it. As soon as I did, I went out to find Danny, who was playing in the last group this morning. I spoke to Danny about it. I showed it to Danny. And he’s resentfully upset in his brother’s article.
It is not what Danny thinks. It is not what I think. It is not what Team Europe stands for. So Danny was ignorant of it and he fully intends to speak to his brother whenever he comes in and express his anger to his brother about it, because that is not what Team Europe stands for.
“I was very UPSET in it, as well, because that’s an outside person expressing their opinion which is not representative of what our thoughts are.”
Willett was made aware of the article during Wednesday’s practice round at Heseltine and later told the Golf Channel: “I’d just like to apology clearly to everyone concerned for what’s been said.
“And I said to Pete that I was clearly upset in what was said and what was written about the American fans that visibly took me under their wing very back in April
Davis Love, the US captain, said he was aware of the article. “I heard about it on the course,” said Love. “I advided him Please ignore this conversation..
“If you know me, I don’t even read my own press clippings when I win. If I read it, I’m just going to get defensive. So I just try to ignore it.
“The fans at a home event, both in Europe and over here, get into it. They are so keyed up. A big part of home field advantage is the fans. If we play well here and get the fans behind us then we have an advantage.”
