Brooks Koepka couldn’t hide his disdain for golf rival Bryson DeChambeau in a leaked interview after Sunday’s PGA Championship.
Koepka finished T2 at Kiawah Island, two shots adrift of winner Phil Mickelson and seven clear of PGA Tour number four, DeChambeau.
The pair have an infamous long-running feud dating back to January 2019 when Koepka complained about DeChambeau’s slow play.
But things appeared to get more heated in South Carolina at the weekend after the latter interrupted the former’s TV interview.
Koepka, seemingly already agitated, had to pause mid-answer after DeChambeau appeared to utter something while walking past in the background.
Visibly annoyed by his rival’s intrusion, Koepka closed his eyes, shook his head and said: “I lost my train of thought – hearing that bull****, f****** christ.”
It’s unclear exactly what the 27-year-old said to provoke such a reaction, although some social media users have their own theories.
According to one reply, DeChambeau is alleged to have said: “Maybe you should hit it on the right line” after Koepka said he found the course “difficult to read.”
The two golfing superstars rarely see eye-to-eye and have been firing digs at each other for over two years, although the pair saw the lighter side in 2019.
“Let's be honest, we know who would win that fight,” DeChambeau said of a hypothetical bout between the pair. “And it's not me.”
Koepka joined in the fun, adding: "You got that right."

After that brief thawing of relations, the men were back on a war footing just over 12 months ago in July 2020.
When golf returned from its coronavirus-enforced break, DeChambeau had bulked up and was hitting drives further than ever before.
That led to some immense trolling from Koepka, who posted a gif on Twitter without making comment on his rival’s improvement.
