Bryson DeChambeau discusses his feud with Brooks Koepka ahead of the Ryder Cup.
Bryson DeChambeau has addressed his ongoing spat with Brooks Koepka ahead of the Ryder Cup this month.
Bryson DeChambeau has spoken out about his feud with Brooks Koepka ahead of the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits later this month. On the PGA Tour, DeChambeau and Koepka’s simmering feud has been well chronicled, with the two colliding on several occasions in previous seasons.
However, the pair will now have to work out their issues in order to compete in the 2021 Ryder Cup together.
The 27-year-old addressed tensions between himself and his Ryder Cup teammate in a rare TV interview ahead of this week’s FedEx Cup finals at the Tour Championship, as the two prepare to team up for Team USA in three weeks.
When asked if he could team up with Koepka, DeChambeau responded, “I am 100 percent willing to do that, there is no issue in that sense.”
Furthermore, the 2019 US Open champion unexpectedly went on to laud his fellow countryman, indicating that he holds him in high regard. “I think highly of him [Koepka], he’s done a lot for the sport,” he continued.
“I think he’s a fascinating individual who may be a fantastic addition to the team. For myself, I know I can be an incredible contribution to the team, and if we can all focus on being the best we can be, we’ll win, we’ll win.”.
When speaking with DeChambeau at East Lake, the host course for this week’s FedEx Cup final, the reporter asked: “It appears you guys are going to have to interact with each other,” to which the world No. 7 replied: “Yeah, I hope so!” before confirming he no longer has a beef with the four-time major winner.
“Treat others the way you want to be treated,” the 27-year-old said. Everyone assumes I have a problem with him, but I don’t; in fact, I don’t.”
While DeChambeau said he doesn’t have a problem with Koepka, it appears he does have a problem with his fans, who have repeatedly chanted “Brooksy” at the 27-year-old throughout his Tour career, most notably during his epic six-hole play-off with Patrick Cantlay at last week’s BMW Championship.
