DeChambeau ‘wants to end feud’ with US Ryder Cup teammate Koepka

Bryson DeChambeau wants to end to his long-running feud with his US Ryder Cup teammate Brooks Koepka, according to his coach, Mike Schy.

DeChambeau has been involved in public rows with Koepka for more than a year, with the US captain, Steve Stricker, having to step in last month to broker peace between them.

Koepka called out DeChambeau for slow play, while DeChambeau made fun of Koepka’s physique in a magazine interview. The feud then picked up steam after a leaked interview Koepka recorded with the Golf Channel in May. As DeChambeau walked behind the camera, Koepka rolled his eyes and made obvious his distaste for the player.

“Whether or not they are both doing it to maximise their global profile, Bryson wants it over,” Schy told the Times on Monday. “Move on. The bottom line is two big egos.”

Schy said DeChambeau can give the impression that he is a “little selfish” because of his mannerisms but that the 28-year-old is trying his best to contribute to the US team as they prepare for this week’s Ryder Cup.

DeChambeau will make his second appearance at the Ryder Cup, which will be held at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin from Friday.

“He loves team play. At times, when he’s struggling, it can look a little selfish, but the reality is he is doing his best to contribute,” Schy said.

Schy said DeChambeau, who won last year’s US Open, “loves representing his country” and was disappointed to miss the Tokyo Olympics after he tested positive for Covid-19.
