Steve Stricker, the US Ryder Cup chief, has pronounced the Bryson DeChambeau versus Brooks Koepka question a “non-issue” before this current end of the week’s occasion at Whistling Straits. Stricker uncovered he has gotten guarantees from the pair that waiting and shared hostility will be left to the side as the US try to recover the prize from Europe.
“It’s a non-issue, truly, for myself and the group,” Stricker said. “We got together half a month prior and I’ve had discussions with them both. They have guaranteed me it won’t be an issue. I have no concerns whatsoever.”Stricker obviously let it out is profoundly far-fetched that DeChambeau and Koepka, who have exchanged public blows all through 2021, will shape an on-course organization in Wisconsin. “Will we combine them together? I don’t think so now yet things could change,” said Stricker.
“Could generally occur yet likely not. Once more, I had a supper; they all appeared. We had incredible discussion, extraordinary discussions. So I’m not considering it to be an issue at all and they are totally ready.”
Stricker had cause to have further conversation with Koepka after remarks from the world No 10 showed up last week. Koepka alluded to detachment towards the Ryder Cup climate, which he marked “a bit odd”. Stricker said: “I’ve conversed with him about it. I’ve had encounters with Brooks over many, a large number of these groups, and the discussions that I have had with him and what I have by and by found in the group room doesn’t satisfy what I was perusing in those articles.
“Once more, I am not stressed over Brooks. He guarantees me he’s sound. He guarantees me that he is 100% in with no reservations in this group and whatever he need to accomplish for this group to turn into the champ toward the week’s end. I’m not stressed over Brooks at all and it’s been acceptable discussions and he’s prepared to get down and start playing.”Stricker affirmed Tiger Woods won’t be nearby this end of the week as the 15-times significant champ proceeds with his recuperation from a genuine fender bender. “I believe it’s simply not a fun time for him to be here actually in light of where he’s at in his restoration,” Stricker said. “It’s an extreme course to walk. Everyone will see it, from tee-to-green, it’s troublesome.
“He’s improving and his spotlight and mine is on making a rebound to play once more. We would prefer not to impede that since we would all affection to see him return and play.”
