Pete Willett wrote a scathing piece slagging off the US supporters in a magazine last week, which wasn't taken too kindly by the patrons at Hazeltine.

"S**t," Willett answered when asked a long question by a reporter about how he would rate his first Ryder Cup.

Willett was one of many European golfers who misfired as USA routed Darren Clarke's men 17-10 to win back the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2010.
