In a historic week for Team U.S.A. at the Ryder Cup,. DJ ended up being the initial American in 42 years to gain the maximum (five) factors for his group– leading the U.S. to a 19-9 romp over the Europeans.
That set off fairly the celebration among the winning UNITED STATE side at Whistling Straits. Xander Schauffele was chugging beers, chainsmoking cigars and also sliding down hillsides of gorse with beers in hand. Collin Morikawa and also Justin Thomas had magnum containers of Moet glued to their hands … and also every person was enjoying themselves.
As is custom, the winning Ryder Cup group needs to sit down with the media to do an interview– usually at least an hour after the Ryder Cup is over, so the golf players tend to be niceeee and sauced when entering the media center– as well as that held true at Whistling Straits.
DJ, as you would certainly anticipate, likes to enjoy himself a mixed drink or 2– and also he was seen with a cup with ice and more than likely vodka. Certainly, the 37-year-old most likely doesn’t party like he made use of to (or possibly he does?), however a participant of the media determined to ask the two-time major champ whether he assumes he can still hang with his colleagues, that are all younger than he is.
DJ had the perfect action:
Our favorite part may be his colleagues’ reactions. Justin Thomas as well as Brooks Koepka can not be a lot more overjoyed with DJ’s feedback.
Get that weak s– out of here. We are chatting concerning Dustin Johnson, folks. Not only an American golf tale however an outright stallion. The man mosted likely to Coastal Carolina, and for any person that’s been to Myrtle Coastline knows, the celebration constantly goes more challenging and also longer.
Someone like DJ recognizes when you obtain a magnum container of Moet, you do not squander everything showering your teammates with the sparkling wine. You should appreciate several of it, also.

There is no question– as the USA event entered into the night– DJ was the one leading the event, not having a hard time to keep up.
