(AP) - Brooks Koepka said his back-and-forth with fellow major champion Bryson DeChambeau is good for growing the game of golf.

Koepka is playing at the Palmetto Championship this week, his first event since a video outtake was posted to social media that showed him rolling his eyes as DeChambeau walked by him at the PGA Championship last month.

Koepka said the clip put the focus on golf for a younger generation that also likes the spice of a feud. Count on things to heat up again next week when the two tee off at the U.S. Open in Torrey Pines.
