What’s a Ryder Cup without a little fire and intensity?

In the morning on Saturday Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger shared some displeasure with a rules official. With the Americans holding a 9-3 lead entering Saturday afternoon’s Four-Balls session at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin, things got a little chippy in the match between Jordan Spieth and Koepka and Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia.

More specifically, Spieth and Rahm’s caddie, Adam Hayes.

It all started on the par-5 5th. Rahm’s front foot slipped on his tee shot and he hit his ball right into the water. All four players walked off the tee and agreed where the ball crossed into the penalty area. When the players approached the drop area, according to NBC/Golf Channel on-course analyst Jim “Bones” Mackay, “someone tried to influence the decision on where to drop,” with a 20-yard difference of opinion. Spieth didn’t take too kindly to that and let his opinion be heard, which led to a sparky discussion between him and Hayes.

Said Spieth during the lively discussion: “I didn’t raise my voice, buddy.”

Spieth, Hayes and Rahm all spoke after the hole was finished, the boys traded fist-bumps and the match carried on with the Europeans holding a 2-up lead.

“No question Adam was very, very passionate in what he had to say and there were certainly a couple people who thought he overreacted in terms of his opinion,” added Bones.
