The LIV Golf Team Championship takes place in Miami this week, and Smash GC are a man down.

That is according to five-time major champ Brooks Koepka, who clearly hasn’t made up with Matthew Wolff.

After winning the final individual event of the season in Jeddah, Koepka took his latest swipe at teammate Wolff.

He said: “There’s only three of us on our team.

“I mean, obviously, I’m pretty tight with my brother, and I’ve been pretty close with Jay for maybe the last three years.

“I’ve enjoyed being around him. He’s a good player, super talented. It’s been fun to be around him, and he’s played pretty solidly this year. Yeah, I can’t say anything bad about him.”

Failing to acknowledge Wolff comes after the pair were involved in a dispute in June, as Koepka ripped into his attitude and work ethic.

Wolff then questioned Koepka’s leadership, as the 24-year-old labelled the criticism ‘heartbreaking’.

The former Oklahoma State golfer has struggled to find form since joining LIV and finished 27th on the individual season standings.

That means Wolff is not assured of a place on the breakaway circuit next season unless he has a contract.

Koepka’s team will take another hit as his brother, Chase, finished outside the top 44 players, meaning he was one of four players to be relegated.

The 29-year-old finished dead last in Saudi Arabia at the weekend, although Brooks took the positives from his brother’s time in LIV.

He said: “I’ve been there. We’ve all been there. Every golfer has. It’s part of it. You look at it, he was playing mini-tour golf 16 months ago. I don’t think the last year and a half has been too bad for him.”

The younger Koepka was relegated alongside James Piot, Sihwan Kim and Jediah Morgan, who all finished in the drop zone.

Those players will be given the chance to regain their cards, however, as LIV is set to host its first-ever Promotions event.

While details have not been confirmed for the event, it will be a stroke-play event over 72 holes this winter.
