KOHLER, Wisconsin (Reuters) – The United States needs a couple of more focuses to secure the Ryder Cup yet Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger kicked the party off a little right off the bat Saturday, chugging lagers on the main tee while their colleague was out on Whistling Straits fighting the Europeans in fourballs.
U.S. skipper Steve Stricker minimized the episode as a “Wisconsin tradition” but with video of two golfers chugging on beers then slamming the cans into the turf to chants of “USA, USA,” becoming a web sensation, he realized it was something he planned to get gotten some information about.
Thomas and Berger both played in the first part of the day foursomes yet passed on the evening fourballs.
“It’s kind of an (NBA) Milwaukee Bucks thing where, if I’m not mistaken, I’ve seen “Chug a Beer” on the JumboTron at the Milwaukee Bucks games, and it’s something that’s kind of a Wisconsin tradition, I guess,” said Stricker. “Regardless of whether it’s fortunate or unfortunate?
“It just looks like they are having a good time.
“But I knew I was probably going to have to answer that question because they went to that first tee and they did that, and I’m fine with that.”
