Justin Thomas Rejects Patrick Reed’s Claim In Ryder Cup Row

Rumours of an argument between Koepka and world number one Johnson at the Ryder Cup, which were denied at the time, have since been confirmed by United States captain Jim Furyk.

Spieth and Reed had forged a successful partnership at the 2014 Ryder Cup, one that continued to prove fruitful at subsequent Presidents Cups and the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Furyk defended his decision to pair Reed and Tiger together and said that Reed had known about the move weeks in advance disputing the idea that it was done once the team arrived in Paris.

Reed made headlines for his heated comments, in which he claimed it wasn't smart for someone with his Ryder Cup resume to be sat twice.

Reed touched off the controversy by saying he was "blindsided" by being grouped with Tiger Woods at Le Golf National rather than Jordan Spieth, with whom he played in 2016 as the US broke a losing streak that stretched back to 2008.

'I mean, it reminded me of whenever we were going out there in my first Ryder Cup and Jordan and I went and ham-and-egged it. When it comes right down to it, I don't care if I like the person I'm paired with or if the person likes me as long as it works and it sets up the team for success.

Assessing the 2018 American team, Montgomerie wondered whether Phil Mickelson should have withdrawn from the team to make way for someone in better form.

'It's been tough, ' Furyk told the Golf Channel.

"There's a process to go through and I think you've got to look at 'are we covering all bases?'", Bjorn told a press conference ahead of this week's British Masters. It was very short. But they're as close as they've ever been, and it really had no effect on either one of them.

'When I started looking at who (Tiger) would pair well with, I kept coming back to Patrick Reed.

And Thomas told reporters at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia: "That (the pairing) was something obviously that had been talked about in advance, but all I was anxious about was that I knew I was going to play with Jordan and we wanted to take care of our match".

Reed went 0-2 playing with Tiger Woods before winning his singles match.

"I'd take those 12 players into the fire any day, on any course".

"I talked about [the decision to break up Spieth and Reed] with the vice captains", Furyk said.

'There's a reason why I said that Tommy and Francesco were unbeatable, because I would love to have to go up against them again, ' Reed said on Sirius XM PGA Tour radio.
