Keopka Denies An Altercation Took Place Between He & Johnson, Furyk Said It Did.

So who is telling the truth?

Brooks Koepka attended the Alfred Dunhill Links media centre at St. Andrews last week and is on record as saying there was no altercation between he and USA Ryder Cup team-mate Dustin Johnson.

Here is Koepka’s response to a question put to him by The Scotsman’s┬áMartin Dempster.

“This Dustin thing, I don’t get. There’s no fight. There’s no argument. He’s one of my best friends. I mean, we talked on the phone on Monday — yesterday. So you tell me how we fought. I don’t know,” said Koepka.

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

So the triple Major winner blamed the media for making-up the story.

Well, USA Captain, Jim Furyk spoke Monday on the Golf Channel and confirms a ‘brief’ altercation did occur between Koepka and Johnson.

“Whatever altercation started, or what happened, it was very brief. It was very short,” said Furyk.

“Neither one of them really took anything out of it,” Furyk said. “They’re like brothers. Brothers may argue, brothers get into it. But they’re as close as they’ve ever been, and it really had no effect on either one of them.”

So, who are we to believe?

What is abundantly true is that the USA team were crushed 17 1/2 to 10 1/2 by Europe.
