Last month at the PGA Championship, Brooks Koepka used a post-round interview to seemingly take a shot at Dustin Johnson, a golfer he once considered a close friend. Koepka, who was in the hunt for the lead at the time — the tournament was eventually won by Collin Morikawa — remarked that there were a lot of names ahead of him on the leaderboard, but implied that he didn't fear many of them. Koepka has won four majors — the PGA Championship twice, and the U.S. Open twice.
