Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger hit the beer as USA take commanding lead
Both players were left out of the Saturday afternoon fourballs, but with the United States holding a 9-3 lead they clearly felt in the mood to get the party started as they whipped up the home fans.
Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger hit the beer
Some of the cans of beer thrown into the grandstand by the players were thrown back and Thomas picked one up and turned his baseball cap backwards before getting down on one knee and slugging most of the contents.
The former world number one then slammed the largely empty can into the ground as Berger also downed his beer to the delight of the gallery.
“It means a lot because, first off, we probably need to for the amount of grief we give Strick (Steve Stricker) for wanting to play together,” Thomas said.
“We just have a lot of confidence in each other. We know each other’s games which means a lot in terms of asking questions and whatnot.
“It’s so fun and I’m glad we can get a full point because we actually played a lot better yesterday and ran into a bit of a buzzsaw, but we grinded it out today.”
