Koepka didn’t exactly appear to be happy with being barred from getting a drop of the spot. He was heard telling the officials, “If I break my wrist, it’s on f—ing both of you.”

Koepka came into the Ryder Cup with concerns about his wrist. He was forced to drop out of the Tour Championship because of a wrist injury.

He made a remark about his health in the Ryder Cup press conference earlier in the week.

“I’m like glass,” he said, via Golf.com. “So I wouldn’t say I am 100 percent. Left knee, right knee. I’m broken, man.”

His 2020-21 season was plagued with knee injuries, a hip issue and later the wrist problem.
