Rory McIlroy admits that he's thoroughly enjoying the growing feud between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau.

"I sent Brooks a message last Monday morning when it all came out," McIlroy said, according to Golf Magazine's Dylan Dethier. "I said, 'I don't care what happens to me for the rest of this week, this has made my week, this is like the best thing ever.'"

McIlroy was referring to the following video from almost two weeks ago, where DeChambeau's presence visibly bothered Koepka while he was being interviewed.

The pair exchanged jabs on Twitter and Instagram in the days after the video surfaced, with DeChambeau telling Koepka that it's "nice to be living rent-free in your head."

DeChambeau weighed in on the animosity with Koepka again Friday.

"Yeah, I mean, look, I've got nothing against him. I've got no issues at all," DeChambeau said. "If he wants to play that game, that's great. I'm going to keep trying to play my best game, and when it comes down to it when somebody's that bothered by someone else, it is flattering."

Through two rounds at this weekend's Memorial Tournament, DeChambeau is sitting at one-under while McIlroy is even. Koepka opted to sit out.
