SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin – A dangerously long celebration came to a lavish end when chants of “Brooksie, Brooksie, Brooksie” erupted.
This wasn’t the closing ceremony or the Ryder Cup after party, it was the press conference of the American team and the US team had just ended a sprawling and alcohol-soaked Q&A with a strange request.
“I think before this is all over we should hug Brooks and Bryson in the middle of the room. To prove how much we are a team, they’ll hug, ”Justin Thomas said with a big smile.
DeChambeau and Koepka have been a focal point at the PGA Championship in recent months after an embarrassing exchange at the PGA Championship PGA Tour. At the Memorial, fans joined DeChambeau with chants of “Brooksie” and last month the tour drew a hard line on “harassing and disruptive behavior” directed at DeChambeau.

But after the sovereign 19: 9 victory of the USA over the Europeans in the Whistling Straits, the questions of team unity and camaraderie were settled. So much so that Thomas saw his chance.
