For those who follow LIV Golf, they know that Brooks Koepka is the captain of the LIV Golf team 'Smash GC' Brooks takes his job seriously and wants to help his team at every moment. However, Koepka has only now felt the seriousness of his job.
Matthew Wolff, a player on his team, decided to withdraw during the opening round in Washington DC. Wolff provoked the anger of the captain. “I mean, when you quit on your round, you give up and stuff like that, that's not competing,” -Brooks Koepka said.
Team captains are responsible for creating a positive team spirit and helping their team succeed. The whole team will suffer if only one player does not give his best. Such players are clearly not wanted by Koepka. “I'm not a big fan of that.
You don't work hard. It's very tough. It's very tough to have even like a team dynamic when you've got one guy that won't work, one guy is not going to give any effort, he’s going to quit on the course, break clubs, gets down, bad body language, it's very tough."

With this, Wolff showed that he is still not mature enough to be part of such a big story.
However, this will be an important lesson for him that he has to change. Koepka's words should awaken a reaction in him and cause a big change. "I've basically given up on him. A lot of talent, but I mean the talent's wasted”.
This is a matter that the team captain and Wolff will have to solve, of course, if there is understanding from both sides. Koepka, as more experienced, should point Wolff in the right direction. Judging by his statements, he had already tried that before, but apparently without success.
