Jason Day, Justin Rose taking time off to nurse back injuries

Jason Day and Justin Rose are planning to take the next few months off as they each try to rest back injuries that affected them throughout the season.

Rose announced he will be taking two months off from competitive golf, as he gets to spend some time away following a busy summer that included the major championships and becoming the first Olympic gold medalist in golf in 112 years. Rose experienced a herniated disc at The Players in May, and he took about a month off to deal with the problem. With the PGA Tour season and the Ryder Cup now in the rear-view mirror, Rose will take off the remainder of the European Tour season.

Hi guys – disappointed to share this news with you all, but looking forward to being back to competition. #Team????

Day has been dealing with back issues for years now, and he faced on en route to victory in March at the WGC-Dell Match Play. However, the world No. 1 had a flare up of the issue during the BMW Championship, the third of four FedEx Cup playoff events, in September, forcing him to withdraw in the final round. Even with a week to recuperate, Day then withdrew from the season-ending Tour Championship with the same back problem.

In response, Day announced he will be skipping the World Cup of Golf with intended partner Adam Scott, as well the Australian Open and a planned charity match with Rory McIlroy in the Philippines.

“I regret that I will be unable to come home to Australia this year,” Day said in a statement. “I was looking forward to playing in the Australian Open and teaming up with Adam Scott on one of my favorite courses Kingston Heath the following week at the World Cup in Melbourne. My plan is to return home to Australia in 2017.”

Day had three PGA Tour wins in the 2015-16 season, earning more than $8 million.

Danny Willett's brother calls American fans 'baying mob of imbeciles' ahead of Ryder Cup

Pete (P.J.) Willett turned into a minor star on Twitter when his brother Danny won the Masters this past April.

P.J. has turned that moment in the sun into a bit of a regular media gig, writing columns for some overseas publications. He did so again, for National Club Golfer in the United Kingdom, with a Ryder Cup preview piece.

P.J. Willett attributes victory in the Ryder Cup to three factors: how a captain influences the players, how the players influence each other and how the fans influence the outcome. It’s that last point where Willett gets particularly riled up, laying into American fans in what amounts to a motivational speech.

And we’ll let him take it from here.

Team USA have only won five of the last 16 Ryder Cups. Four of those five victories have come on home soil. 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, 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.

Whoa. That was savage. And while some might American fans might be offended by his description of them (don’t count me as one, he nailed some truths in that), the point remains. For Europe to win on American soil again, they need to take the partisan crowd out of it quickly.

For what it’s worth, European captain Darren Clarke said Wednesday afternoon that Danny Willett was unaware of his brother’s column.

“[Danny] fully intends to speak to his brother whenever he comes in and … express his displeasure,” Clarke said. “That is not what Team Europe stands for.

“I was obviously very disappointed in it because that’s an outside person expressing their opinion which is not representative of what our thoughts are.”

U.S. skipper Davis Love III channeled a certain NFL coach with his response when quizzed about the column at his news conference.

“I took coach [Bill] Belichick’s advice — ignored the noise,” Love said. “If I read it, I’m just going to get mad. I’m just gong to get defensive. So I try to ignore it.”

Love knows, however, that the crowd could be a major weapon for the Americans.

“The fans at a home event, both in Europe and over here, they get into it,” he added. “It is a big part of the home advantage.”

The question now: Does Danny Willett expect a fan to shout “Baby booey” after every shot this weekend?

U.S. skipper Davis Love III channeled a certain NFL coach with his response when quizzed about the column at his news conference.

“I took coach [Bill] Belichick’s advice — ignored the noise,” Love said. “If I read it, I’m just going to get mad. I’m just gong to get defensive. So I try to ignore it.”

Love knows, however, that the crowd could be a major weapon for the Americans.

“The fans at a home event, both in Europe and over here, they get into it,” he added. “It is a big part of the home advantage.”

The question now: Does Danny Willett expect a fan to shout “Baby booey” after every shot this weekend?

Danny Willett's brother calls American fans 'baying mob of imbeciles' ahead of Ryder Cup

Pete (P.J.) Willett turned into a minor star on Twitter when his brother Danny won the Masters this past April.

P.J. has turned that moment in the sun into a bit of a regular media gig, writing columns for some overseas publications. He did so again, for National Club Golfer in the United Kingdom, with a Ryder Cup preview piece.

P.J. Willett attributes victory in the Ryder Cup to three factors: how a captain influences the players, how the players influence each other and how the fans influence the outcome. It’s that last point where Willett gets particularly riled up, laying into American fans in what amounts to a motivational speech.

And we’ll let him take it from here.

Team USA have only won five of the last 16 Ryder Cups. Four of those five victories have come on home soil. 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, 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.

Whoa. That was savage. And while some American fans might be offended by his description of them (don’t count me as one, he nailed some truths in that), the point remains. For Europe to win on American soil again, it needs to take the partisan crowd out of it quickly.

For what it’s worth, European captain Darren Clarke said Wednesday afternoon that Danny Willett was unaware of his brother’s column.

“[Danny] fully intends to speak to his brother whenever he comes in and … express his displeasure,” Clarke said. “That is not what Team Europe stands for.

“I was obviously very disappointed in it because that’s an outside person expressing their opinion which is not representative of what our thoughts are.”

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.

Whoa. That was savage. And while some American fans might be offended by his description of them (don’t count me as one, he nailed some truths in that), the point remains. For Europe to win on American soil again, it needs to take the partisan crowd out of it quickly.

For what it’s worth, European captain Darren Clarke said Wednesday afternoon that Danny Willett was unaware of his brother’s column.

“[Danny] fully intends to speak to his brother whenever he comes in and … express his displeasure,” Clarke said. “That is not what Team Europe stands for.

“I was obviously very disappointed in it because that’s an outside person expressing their opinion which is not representative of what our thoughts are.”

U.S. skipper Davis Love III channeled a certain NFL coach with his response when quizzed about the column at his news conference.

“I took coach [Bill] Belichick’s advice — ignored the noise,” Love said. “If I read it, I’m just going to get mad. I’m just gong to get defensive. So I try to ignore it.”

Love knows, however, that the crowd could be a major weapon for the Americans.

“The fans at a home event, both in Europe and over here, they get into it,” he added. “It is a big part of the home advantage.”

The question now: Does Danny Willett expect a fan to shout “Baby booey” after every shot this weekend?

Danny Willett's brother calls American fans 'baying mob of imbeciles' ahead of Ryder Cup

Pete (P.J.) Willett turned into a minor star on Twitter when his brother Danny won the Masters this past April.

P.J. has turned that moment in the sun into a bit of a regular media gig, writing columns for some overseas publications. He did so again, for National Club Golfer in the United Kingdom, with a Ryder Cup preview piece.

P.J. Willett attributes victory in the Ryder Cup to three factors: how a captain influences the players, how the players influence each other and how the fans influence the outcome. It’s that last point where Willett gets particularly riled up, laying into American fans in what amounts to a motivational speech.

And we’ll let him take it from here.

Team USA have only won five of the last 16 Ryder Cups. Four of those five victories have come on home soil. 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, 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.
