Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger couldn’t help but join in with the party with the USA in confident mood at the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.
The American’s had taken a 9-3 lead heading into the afternoon’s fourballs session, needing just five and a half points to clinch the Ryder Cup with 16 to play for still.
And after another big session for the American’s, it’s fair to say that confidence of a Ryder Cup triumph is extremely high in Steve Stricker’s camp in Wisconsin.
After being informed that they would sit out at the fourballs session, Thomas and Berger took the opportunity to unwind and get involved with the fans on the opening tee ahead of play resuming in the afternoon.
With the home fans in jubilant mood, Thomas and Berger decided to fire the crowd up even further as they walked over to salute those in attendance.
As they walked over to the big grandstand, the fans responded by throwing down cans of beer to them, and the American duo didn’t disappoint them.
Following chants of “chug a beer, chug a beer”, Thomas and Berger duly started downing their beers before the former slammed the can down onto the ground in delight.
Thomas then geed up the crowd even more by gesturing at them to continue making noise – and the Ryder Cup stars were then serenaded with chants of “USA, USA, USA”.
It’s easy to see why the Americans are in such fine voice right now, with them on the brink of glory following a difficult time of late in the Ryder Cup.
The Europeans have won nine of the last 12 editions, including last time out at Le Golf National as Thomas Bjorn’s men cruised to victory near Paris.
But the US are close to getting their revenge, and can essentially put the result beyond doubt with another impressive performance in Saturday’s fourballs session.
