Ryder Cup: Neil McLeman and Andy Dunn reflect on first day

Arsenal legend Ian Wright appears glued to the Ryder Cup action, and he has certainly been outspoken about USA’s much-divided character Bryson DeChambeau.

The American golfer dominated headlines in the build-up to the action at Whistling Straits due to his ongoing feud with team-mate Brooks Koepka.

The pair appear to have momentarily put their rivalry to one side as they go in search of Ryder Cup glory in Wisconsin. But now DeChambeau seems to have wound up the European contingent after his actions during Saturday’s fourballs action.

After Viktor Hovland and Tommy Fleetwood didn’t concede a close-range putt for the American, which he duly sunk, as Europe do everything to fight back from their 9-3 deficit, one certain action has come in for criticism.

Following DeChambeau’s successful putt on the opening hole, he immediately laid his putter to the cup on ground, and looked back at his European rivals.

He performed the action to emphasise just how short a putt it was in comparison to the length of his club.

It was a very strange thing to moan about given the divisive DeChambeau uses an elongated putter.

And former Arsenal and England striker Wright took exception to DeChambeau’s antics, expressing his anger to his social media followers.

It is not the first time DeChambeau has come in for controversy at this year’s Ryder Cup.

Also on the opening hole on the first day, DeChambeau hit a wayward drive, which struck the ankle of a female spectator at Whistling Straits.

It is not clear whether he shouted ‘fore’ or not but he drew criticism for his wayward drive.
