The rivalry between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau has taken another twist after a leaked interview exposed a sour interaction between the pair at the US PGA Championship.

All the headlines were rightfully around Phil Mickelson's historic victory as 'madness' erupted following the 50-year-old's remarkable sixth major.

But now, in an interview doing the rounds on social media, Koepka was seen taking a dig at DeChambeau after he was interrupted by the golfer himself during the interview.

Koepka was speaking to Golf Channel's Todd Lewis about how he found the putting difficult to read in the conditions during the second-round of the US PGA Championship last week.

But during the interview DeChambeau walked behind him and apparently said: “Just gotta start it on the right line."

A furious looking Koepka shut his eyes as DeChambeau walked behind him.

After he left, Koepka appeared furious and didn't know where to begin.

“I lost my train of thought; hearing that bulls**t," he said.

“F**king Christ.”

Lewis burst out laughing before attempting to restart the interview after he claimed the team would have a good laugh at the footage later in the 'bunker'.

Following the interview, Koepka fell agonisingly short and finished behind Mickelson in second at the 103rd US PGA Championship.

The ugly interaction between the pair comes after plenty of speculation over their relationship.

The apparent dislike for each other should make for an interesting Ryder Cup when the pair will be expected to play nice on the same team.

DeChambeau takes dig at Koepka

The frustration from Koepka to DeChambeau follows DeChambeau taking a crack at Koepka last year.

Koepka caused a stir in the golf world when he appeared on a magazine in very little clothing.

But DeChambeau took a dig Koepka over the appearance and his physique.

“In [ESPN’s] Body Issue he didn’t even have any abs, I can tell you that,” DeChambeau said on a Twitch stream.

“I got some abs.”

But Koepka hit back with a post of his four majors.

“You were right Bryson DeChambeau I am 2 short of a 6 pack," he wrote.
