Brooks Koepka has told Golfweek that he would not want to hang out with Bryson DeChambeau away from golf, and that he is not close with any of the players out on the PGA Tour, and that includes Dustin Johnson. 

Koepka addressed his thoughts on a number of golfing topics ahead of his title defence at this week's WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind. 

"I don’t get paired with him much," Koepka said of DeChambeau in an interview with Golfweek.

"We’re two totally different people. He wouldn’t be anyone I would hang out with outside of golf, and I think he would say the same thing. Which is totally cool. There’s nothing wrong with that.

"Just two completely different personalities. I’ve got no issue with him. He’s just never going to be my best friend, we’ll put it that way."

Koepka even addressed his relationship with Johnson, which many people believe to be a very close one, however that doesn't sound the case judging by his latest comments. 

"That got blown out of proportion because we worked out in the same gym," Koepka told Golfweek, when quizzed to how close he really is with Johnson.

"We no longer do that. All of last year at least we weren’t working out together.

"I’ve got all the friends I need, friends that I grew up with and enjoy being around. They’re not big into the golf scene. I don’t go play with guys when I’m at home.

"I don’t stick to myself, but if I’m practicing I’m not trying to help other guys out at the same time. I’m not going to tee it up in a practice round with guys. I feel like you’re giving them an advantage in how you see the golf course and strategy."
