Some American golf fans are furious with Danny Willett's brother

BY foxsports • September 28, 2016

The Ryder Cup is the most emotional golf tournament around, and the crowds at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota this weekend should be electric as the United States tries to win the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2008. 

Masters champion Danny Willett is one of the most likeable European golfers on the team, but he's likely to experience some extra hostility from the American crowd after his brother, Pete Willett, wrote a humorous Ryder Cup preview that some fans have found offensive. 

You might remember Pete Willett (@P_J_Willett) from the Masters, when he hilariously live-tweeted the final round.

Pete Willett wrote an article for National Club Golfer detailing how Team Europe can win the Ryder Cup that read like a roast.

Willett's Twitter mentions have become predictably nasty since the article was published, and Team Europe captain Darren Clarke even said Wednesday that he was "disappointed" in the article and that Danny Willett was "mortified" when he read it.
