Brooks Koepka’s strategic move to attract professional golfers on the PGA Tour is gaining recognition from top players Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau, solidifying his ‘Money Moves’ strategy.


Yesterday marked the conclusion of another round of golf at the Marco Simone Golf Club in Rome. The European Team emerged victorious in the Ryder Cup, winning by a significant margin of 16.5 – 11.5. It was a spectacular performance and a much-needed redemption for the Europeans after their humiliating loss at the Whistling Straits in 2021.

The Americans, known for their stubbornness, have swiftly recovered from their recent loss. Despite the defeat, they have been sharing witty comments on social media. Surprisingly, Brooks Koepka, the sole LIV golfer on the team, has attempted to expand the LIV Golf brand by recruiting PGA Tour professionals for his separate league’s team.

Do PGA Tour golfers who are feeling down feel tempted by LIV Golf?

A Twitter discussion took place between PGA Tour players and LIV golfers. Brooks Koepka, the only LIV golfer at the Ryder Cup, shared a photo with Max Homa, Rickie Fowler, Sam Burns, and Xander Schauffele, but it was not a typical one.

The image showed the entire team donning the Koepka-led GC Crushers t-shirt. The team is one of the 12 groups in the PIF-supported LIV Golf Series. The photo was shared with the caption, “I am making strategic financial decisions.”

Moreover, this was also posted by other fellow LIV golfers such as Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson. The latter used an emoji to express his surprise at the picture.

However, DeChambeau came prepared with a pun of his own!

Surprisingly, Koepka is the sole person in the photograph who is not dressed in his team’s gear. He is instead wearing a Nike sweatshirt in a shade of blue. The picture was taken outside the Captain’s office during the Ryder Cup.

Although the camaraderie within the team is evident in this image, the underlying question remains as to why America was unable to meet expectations.

What were the reasons for Team USA’s defeat at the Ryder Cup?

The American team faced a variety of issues during the 2023 Ryder Cup, resulting in a poor performance. The team was initially affected by a flu outbreak, which disrupted their preparation and ultimately led to a disastrous start in the foursomes.

The following piece of text cannot be reworded.

The choices made by Captain Zach Johnson were called into question, as he overlooked players from LIV and those with stronger current performances in his captain’s picks. His in-game tactics also proved unsuccessful. This led to underperformance from key players and added strain on the team.

In the end, the consistent trend of the American team struggling while playing away from home, combined with Europe’s outstanding performance on the first day and maintaining that momentum, led to a disappointing and one-sided defeat. This has raised doubts about the future of the Ryder Cup as the team was unable to break the three-decade-long curse.
