Here are the nasty things a European golfer's brother said about US fans

The Ryder Cup trash talk is on now that the brother of one of Europe's top golfers went on a ridiculous rant about American golf fans.

Pete Willett, the brother of Masters champion Danny Willett, went on a long-winded rant in an article published by You can get the full rant below, but here are some of the things he called U.S. fans.

  • Pudgy
  • Brainless (expletive)
  • Groupies
  • Basement dwellers
  • Irritants
  • Stuffed with cookie dough
  • Pissy beer drinkers
  • Have mouthfuls of hot dogs
  • Have red jelly faces
  • Americans are angry
  • Americans are unwashed
  • We all have concealed-carry licenses
  • Obnoxious dads
  • Shiny teeth (thank you?)
  • Lego man hair
  • Ex-wives are medicated
  • Children are resentful
  • We wear cargo shorts and boating shoes
  • Americans are cretins

Here's the rant as Willett wrote it.

"For the Americans to stand a chance of winning, they need their baying mob of imbeciles to caress their egos every step of the way. Like one of those brainless bastards from your childhood, the one that pulled down your shorts during the school’s Christmas assembly (f**k you, Paul Jennings), they only have the courage to keg you if they’re backed up by a giggling group of reprobates. 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 concealed-carry compensators and belting out a mini-erection 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.

Team Europe need to silence these cretins quickly."

In an interview with Golf Channel, Danny Willett apologized to everyone involved and said he doesn't agree with his brother's views.

Team Europe's captain Darren Clarke said he's extremely disappointed in Willett's brother while U.S. captain Davis Love III said he hopes the American fans will be loud at Hazeltine to help give them a home field advantage, according to The Guardian.
