Golf star Brooks Koepka lost his train of thought and dropped several profanities in mid-interview when his rival, Bryson DeChambeau, walked past him.
While talking to the Golf Channel about the challenge of putting well in windy conditions at the PGA Championship, Koepka seethed after being distracted in the presence of DeChambeau, who was presumably talking to another person.
The loathing Koepka has for DeChambeau was evident in an instant during the interview.
"I just felt it difficult to read, you sometimes …," said the 31-year-old 2018 CJ Cup winner before shutting his eyes in disgust after hearing DeChambeau's metal spikes scraping the ground.
He told interviewer Todd Lewis:
"I f'king lost―I lost my train of thought, yeah, hearing that bullsh*t. F'kin' Christ."
The Golf Channel leaked interview found its way online, which you can see censored version here:
The feud between Koepka and DeChambeau had been brewing for a while.
According to USA Today, the two intense competitors have very contrasting personalities. DeChambeau is a fan favorite and gained more popularity after he noticeably bulked up last summer.
Koepka, on the other hand, does not interact with fans as much as the Tour's stars and has a more "businesslike" and "serious" mentality.
Their rivalry stems back to when Koepka singled out DeChambeau and criticized him for his slow play.
At the Northern Trust in 2019, Koepka said:
"I mentioned his name once. I don't think I've come at him. I just talked about slow play, and obviously he feels I'm talking about him every time."
DeChambeau allegedly approached Koepka's caddie and told him to relay the message Koepka should air out his grievances over the pace of play in person.
The two allegedly talked it out since then but there still seems to be lingering contention. DeChambeau also took a cheap shot and made a comment about Koepka's abs during a live Twitch stream.
He may not be a favorite among fans, but Koepka's raw reaction may have won him a following.
Reacting to Koepka's meltdown, Lewis indicated to the crew they were starting over. He told the pro-golfer how much the crew would enjoy the clip.
"I honestly wouldn't even care," replied Koepka.
Koepka and DeChambeau are expected to be in the U.S. Open field at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California in June.
