Butch Harmon has a simple answer on how to handle Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka at the Ryder Cup

Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka. The two names have become synonymous over the last few years, but for the wrong reasons. Two of the best players in the world have been locked like battling rams in a petty-off.

To summarize their feud for those unaware, DeChambeau’s new nickname is “Brooksie.”

In a recent interview, Claude Harmon III asked Butch Harmon, legendary coach, how he would handle the inevitable elephant in the United States locker room sure to make its presence felt at next week’s Ryder Cup.

“Hell, I’d pair them together,” Harmon said on the ‘Off Course’ podcast. “I’d say, ‘All right boys, get your heads out of your a– and go play.’ I’d put them out the first day, first match out.

“I’d say, ‘Guys, I want you to suck it up and go win a damn point. This isn’t about you; this is about the Ryder Cup … Go get a damn point.’ ”

This theory has been floating around social media since the United States automatic qualifiers were announced, and it may just be the best way to relieve the tension.

The United States team might battle this awkwardness all week long, but eliminating it Friday morning is a decision captain Steve Stricker will be tempted to make.

Imagine the energy that would run through not only the team, but all American fans at Whistling Straits, if DeChambeau and Koepka went out and dominated a foursomes match?

It may just propel the U.S. team to victory.
