But he wasn’t there just to show face, as three-time major winner Brooks Koepka revealed…
“He talked about how he didn’t hear the crowd…. I took that as, he couldn’t wait to shut them up,” revealed Koepka.
“You might hear a few boos, whatever it is, but the quieter they are, you’re kind of laughing inside; you’ve done what you wanted to do.”
That’s sage advice, given the boisterous nature of the of the enthusiastic European crowd.
Meanwhile, a trip into the archives will reveal that Jordan is racking up plenty Ryder Cup appearances, more than most of Team Europe…
