Furyk confirms 'brief' Johnson-Koepka altercation occurred at Ryder Cup

American Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk shed some light on the reported rift between superstars Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka after the event in Europe's team room.

"Whatever altercation started, or what happened, it was very brief. It was very short. Neither one of them really took anything out of it," Furyk said, according to Golf Channel. "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."

Reports swirled after the tournament's conclusion indicating Johnson and Koepka had to be separated during a heated exchange while visiting the winning European team.

Koepka denied those reports when asked at last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Johnson has yet to comment on the situation but did make an awkward appearance in a PGA Tour video on Tuesday, presenting Koekpa with his Player of the Year award and hinting that an altercation may have occurred.
