After winning the Ryder Cup, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau hug it out to put their dispute to rest.
After their individual roles in Team USA’s overwhelming Ryder Cup victory in Wisconsin, their dispute appears to be gone.
There’s nothing like witnessing a historic Ryder Cup debacle to bring two feuding groups together and put their differences aside. This weekend in Wisconsin, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau buried the hatchet and appeared to put an end to their long-running feud with an embrace as they celebrated Team USA’s record victory at Whistling Straits.
After Sunday’s singles action, the Americans staged an euphoric press conference to commemorate the fact that they defeated Team Europe by the largest margin ever this weekend.
Things looked gloomy for Padraig Harrington’s team as the hosts took an 11-5 lead on Saturday, leaving the visitors with the burden of repeating the miracle they pulled off at Medinah nine years ago.
But the Europeans couldn’t do it, and by the time the final putt sunk on Sunday evening, they were down 19-9.
In addition to their Ryder Cup victory, it appears that Team USA was able to help two of its stars restore a broken relationship over the weekend.
On the European side, there was hope that Koepka and DeChambeau’s dispute would undermine the team spirit Steve Stricker was trying to instill in the camp.
However, it had no effect on the golf course, and the couple took advantage of the joyous environment at the press conference to hug it out in front of the world.
DeChambeau was the most enthusiastic, standing in front of the rest of the team before motioning for Koepka to join him at the stage’s front.
On the mics were Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas, with the latter in especially encouraging them by performing a rendition of Why Can’t We Be Friends.
The rest of Team USA, including captain Stricker, yelled and cheered as the two hugged and shook hands, all grins.
This is the only way out. pic.twitter.com/1kwc0ajN6r On Sunday morning, Team Europe captain Harrington sent out his big guns first, knowing that they would have to dominate the day’s play if they were to have any hope of winning on foreign soil.
