Tommy Fleetwood’s caddie jabs back at Bryson in recent “fore” debate

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau has recently garnered some criticism for his response to a seemingly controversial question from a media member on Tuesday at the Open Championship.

DeChambeau was asked why he never shouts “fore” when hitting a ball towards a crowd, to which he responded, “I do shout fore… You are bringing up a very controversial thing, which is unfortunate.”

The video made the rounds of golf twitter all day, and Ian Finnis, professional caddie for Tommy Fleetwood, felt the need to throw his two cents in with the following tweet:

The tournament hasn’t even started, and Bryson’s come under fire once again. Tommy Fleetwood can surely be added to the list of players that would make for an awkward pairing with Bryson!

Steve Stricker urges fans to not ‘cross the line’ at Ryder Cup

Published

on

Rewind back to Hazeltine in 2016, the last time the Ryder Cup was on American soil, and Rory McIlroy was forced to ask if a fan could be removed for his aggressive and abusive behavior.

U.S. Captain Steve Stricker commented to the media this morning that he was hoping for a more respectful performance from the U.S. patrons. “It’s a Ryder Cup. These fans have been pent up for a long time and they’re going to come out and get behind their team. It’s going to be loud, and we expect it to be loud, but again, we ask for people not to cross that line and be respectful of both sides.”

According to Ian Poulter, a veteran European Team member and Ryder Cup villain, “The U.S. fans have been brilliant so far. They’re wishing me well. Not too well, but they’re wishing me well, which is quite nice. That hasn’t always been the case.”

So far so good, but lest we forget, it’s still only Wednesday. The 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup kicks off on Friday, September 24th at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

Meaning behind the bag numbers for European Ryder Cup team explained

Published

on

Every member of the European Ryder Team has a number embroidered on the front of their bag. For example, Lee Westwood is 118, Rory McIlroy is 144, and Viktor Hovland is 162. This might seem random at first glance, but after watching the European Team’s hype video, we totally understand the significance behind it.

While speaking to the media on Tuesday, Rory McIlroy elaborated on the subject. “There’s been 164 players that have played for the European Ryder team, or GB & I way back in the day. It’s a small collection of people that have played for Europe in the Ryder Cup. I think that’s what brings us very close together, and that’s been one of our sort of big focus points this week is just being here is very special and being part of a European team.”

McIlroy also revealed that it was team captain Padraig Harrington’s idea, “He played a video for us last night to put it into context. Only 570 people have been into space; I think over 5,000 people have climbed Everest; 225 have won a men’s major. When you sort of break it down like that, it’s a pretty small group and it’s pretty cool.”

While the United States team may be more loaded with elite talent, it’s hard to argue with the European Team’s self belief, and it’s reasons like this why they have won nine of the last 12 Ryder Cups.

The Ryder Cup may be the perfect storm to put the Brooks-Bryson ‘feud’ to bed for good, with the two men looking a lot more like harmonious teammates than bitter rivals at Whistling Straits this week.

On Tuesday, a significant breakthrough appeared to occur between the two, with Brooks coming over for a quick word with his teammate on the driving range, with everything looking very amicable.

The incident was received very well by a cheering U.S. crowd watching on, with the crowd’s applause getting a smile out of Bryson.

After the session, DeChambeau addressed the print media for the first time in two months and was very forthcoming after breaking his blackout.

Speaking on the recent rivalry with Koepka, the 28-year-old revealed that the two had “great conversations” at East Lake and had been at dinners with each other since. Bryson also teased “something fun coming up here”, which has got many golf fans excited for a potential blockbuster pairing between the two in either the fourballs or foursomes action.

“A lot of this social media stuff has definitely been driven by a lot of external factors, not necessarily us two,” he said. “We had some great conversations during Tour Championship week when we had dinner, and then this week, as well. I sat down and had dinner with him last night, and it was fine.

I think there may be something fun coming up here moving forward, but won’t speak too much more on that.”
