The annoyance for Team USA during a Ryder Cup didn’t finish on a golf march in France. It continued with a news that Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka “had to be separated” during a celebration after a contest finished Sept. 30.

Koepka denied it final week, though captain Jim Furyk reliable it Monday, nonetheless he pronounced it wasn’t utterly as nauseous as reports finished it sound.

“Whatever rumpus started, or what happened, it was unequivocally brief. It was unequivocally short. Neither one of them unequivocally took anything out of it,” Furyk told a Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte. “They’re like brothers. Brothers might argue. Brothers get into it. But they’re as tighten as they’ve ever been, and it unequivocally had no outcome on possibly one of them.”

The Telegraph had reported that a Americans, visit examination partners, “almost came to blows,” with a mother of a Team Europe actor who saw a quarrel “clearly repelled and dissapoint by a nastiness, that was threatening.” France’s L’Equipe claimed it perceived acknowledgment that a occurrence occurred during a celebration hosted by Team Europe and was preceded by another enigma on a group moody from Atlanta.

Johnson arrived during a Ryder Cup amid a whirl of report about his attribute with longtime fiancee Paulina Gretzky, a indication and daughter of hockey fable Wayne Gretzky. Paulina Gretzky, with whom Johnson has dual children, deleted all photos of Johnson from her Instagram feed progressing in September. “Every attribute goes by a ups and downs, though many importantly, we adore any other unequivocally most and are committed to being a family,” Johnson tweeted shortly after that.

Not usually were they were speckled together during a Ryder Cup, though Gretzky was “close by” when a post-tournament dust-up between Johnson and Koepka erupted, according to a Telegraph. Gretzky “was a executive figure in a incident,” according to Golf Digest, that combined that Koepka’s girlfriend, Jena Sims, was “also involved.”

Furyk reportedly asked a dual to put aside their differences for a good of group and country, and a source that L’Equipe described as a member of a group staff told a opening that a “atmosphere was horrible” and Furyk “was devastated.” The dual were interconnected for foursomes foe on a second day of a tournament.

Koepka denied a reports while personification in a contest usually days after Ryder Cup.

“This Dustin thing we don’t get,” he told reporters. “There was no fight. There was no argument. He’s one of my best friends. we adore a child to death. We spoke on a phone on Monday and Tuesday. You tell me how there’s a fight.”

That wasn’t a usually debate to arise from a Ryder Cup. Patrick Reed told a New York Times that he was “blindsided” by not being interconnected with Jordan Spieth. “The issue’s apparently with Jordan not wanting to play with me,” Reed said. “I don’t have any emanate with Jordan. When it comes right down to it, we don’t caring if we like a chairman I’m interconnected with or if a chairman likes me, as prolonged as it works and it sets adult a group for success. He and we know how to make any other better. We know how to get a pursuit done.”

Furyk doubtful that, observant Reed knew he would be interconnected with Tiger Woods, who, like Phil Mickelson, achieved feeble in a competition. Woods and Reed mislaid twice.

“When we started looking during who [Tiger] would span good with, we kept entrance behind to Patrick Reed,” Furyk told Golf Channel. “There was always a thought that we could go Tiger and [Justin Thomas], and Patrick and Jordan, though eventually they knew going into a week — weeks in allege — they knew they would start a Ryder Cup with Patrick and Tiger being partners.”

Furyk certified that a days given a detriment have been “tough.”

“I was a personality of that team, and it didn’t go a approach we wanted,” he said. “It’ll always worry me.”
