The ongoing rift involving Patrick Cantlay continues to divide the American team at the Ryder Cup. Sky Sports correspondent Jamie Weir recently reported that “multiple sources” indicated Cantlay’s belief that players should be compensated for participating in the Ryder Cup, and that the world No.5 was boycotting wearing a cap in protest at Marco Simone this week.

Weir also mentioned that Cantlay and Xander Schauffele had distanced themselves from their American teammates, opting to sit separately in the team room. In response, US captain Zach Johnson vehemently denied these claims, asserting that this team was “legitimately the closest team room I have ever been associated with.”

Nevertheless, a PGA Tour professional has now taken to social media to indirectly criticize Cantlay. Brent Grant, a 27-year-old from Florida, currently ranked 442nd on the Official World Golf Ranking, shared a pointed update on Instagram: “If anyone was wondering. Yes ego and a greedy mindset doesn’t get it done in the Ryder Cup. Guess which of the players the Tour hostage for the last two years.”

While Grant didn’t explicitly mention Cantlay by name, the reference was unmistakable.

As this news spread throughout Marco Simone, European fans taunted Cantlay, beginning with their cheers on the opening tee before his afternoon fourballs match with Wyndham Clark against Rory McIlroy and Matt Fitzpatrick.
