Thanks to hisregarding the United States team and its fans earlier in the week, Danny Willett's first Ryder Cup experience got off to a rocky start.
It didn't get much easier once play began, as Willett failed to post a point in all three of his matches. The worst defeat came during Sunday singles play, when the 28-year-old was hammered 5-and-4 by Brooks Koepka.
Despite the tough times, Willett maintained a sense of humor during the press conference afterward, offering a funny, but honest, response when asked how his first Ryder Cup experience was overall.
"Shit," the Masters champion, prompting laughter throughout the room. "Being honest. Sorry, would you like me to elaborate? Really shit."
Willett wasn't the only European making headlines during the post-event press conference. Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose voiced his concerns about the course setup the organizers chose.
"I think if we were all to be honest about it, I thought the setup was incredibly weak," Rose. "I thought it was very much a Pro-Am feel in terms of the pin placements. The pin on 17 is an absolute, you know, a joke. It's a 9-iron in to the middle of the green and you stiff it. We want to be tested."
While Rose seemed less than pleased, the rest of the European team was in good spirits, joking openly about how hostile the crowd was throughout the event.
"I got called a turd yesterday, which is the first time since I was about 12 years old," Lee Westwoodwhen asked about the atmosphere on the course. "It made me feel young again."
The 2018 event will be held at Le Golf National in France. Willett's brother likely won't make many comments in the buildup to that tournament.
