Koepka Laughs Off Johnson Spat

Koepka Laughs Off Johnson Spat

Brooks Koepka has denied he had a bust-up with Ryder Cup team-mate Dustin Johnson after the Paris event. Fall-out from Europe’s crushing victory continues, with media reports suggesting the three-time major winner had to be separated from world number one Johnson during Sunday evening’s post-match festivities.

However, the big-hitting 28-year-old has dismissed the reports as rubbish and feels it is just a fabricated story.

“This Dustin thing, I don’t get,” he said. “There is no fight, there is no argument, he’s one of my best friends. I love the kid to death, we talked on the phone Monday and yesterday, so you tell me how we fought, I don’t know.

“People like to make a story and run with it. It’s not the first time there has been a news story that isn’t true that has come out.”

Koepka, who is set to play in this week’s three-course Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland, has also had to deal with news that the spectator who was hit by his errant approach shot at Le Golf National is likely to lose the sight in her eye.
