In their latest attempt to dispel rumours of a serious fall-out, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson have chosen to feature in a cringeworthy video for the PGA Tour. 

Reports have suggested that the pair had a serious fall-out on the way to the Ryder Cup in Paris and it has been confirmed by team captain Jim Furyk that they clashed again at the European Team's celebrations. 

Rumours of a rift between the pair were initially prompted by Johnson's partner Paulina Gretzky when she deleted every picture of Koepka from her Instagram account.

Team USA have been on damage control since the incident, and Furyk told The BBC: "Whatever altercation started, or what happened, it was very brief.

"They're like brothers. Brothers may argue, brothers get into it. But they're as close as they've ever been, and it really had no effect on either one of them."

Now, Koepka has been named as the PGA Tour Player of the Year 2018 after winning the US PGA Championship and becoming the first golfer since 1989 to clinch back-to-back US Open titles.

To celebrate this achievement, the PGA Tour has commissioned a video featuring Koepka and Johnson, which plays on the rumours of a rift between them.

The result isn't entirely convincing and is more than a little cringeworthy.

Watch it below and see for yourself.

It looks like fans aren't enjoying the video either, and who can blame them?

Yep, safe to say not many are buying it.

Johnson also tweeted his own personal congratulations to Koepka, posting: "Congratulations @bkoepka. Great season bro...POY well deserved."

Fans reacted with similar scepticism to Johnson's tweet that varied between captions reading, "I'm not buying it", to GIF's of brothers fighting.

It appears there is a lot more work to be done before people believe that Koepka and Johnson have truly buried the hatchet.
