Bryson DeChambeau ‘knows personally’ the PGA Tour will resolve his LIV Golf row and DROP life bans

Bryson DeChambeau claims he “personally knows” the PGA Tour will reverse its indefinite ban on players joining Saudi Arabia’s controversial LIV Golf series, and believes a solution will be found “very soon”.

Speaking to Tucker Carlson on Fox News, ‘The Scientist’ gave a confident answer when asked if he was worried about his lifetime ban from the PGA Tour after turning his back on collecting the Saudi millions – $125 million, to be exact. .

‘It makes no sense (the ban). No, I’m not worried about that,’ said DeChambeau, the 2020 US Open winner. ‘I think it will work itself out.

“I personally know it will be resolved, either legally or if they come to the table and work out the terms. I definitely think it will go away only in the future, very soon.

Referring to himself as “a bit of a pioneer,” DeChambeau told Tucker the same thing about “growing the game” that many of his LIV Golf peers have talked about.

“First of all, it’s a great opportunity to do something different in golf,” the 28-year-old said. “I’ve always been a bit of a trendsetter. Growing up, I always thought I would do something great in the game of golf.

“I have always thought that golf has to suit the younger generation and my goal is to grow the game of golf. I think every industry, no matter what it is, has always been changing and innovating and golf is no different. New formats and teams are enhancing the spirit of the game.’

But there’s only so much time a LIV Golf player can talk about the series before discussing the big money on offer just to show up. DeChambeau is no different than the rest in that regard.

“Just because of the economics, it was a no-brainer,” Dechambeau said of his decision to join. ‘It just becomes a hobby (if you play for free).

‘This is our livelihood and it was a great economic opportunity for golfers to make a lot of money.

“That’s why we grew up playing golf, also because of history, to go and win majors, PGA Tour events and now I want to win LIV events.”

“You can see the passion and the competitive aspect of this environment here and we all want to win every week.”

DeChambeau said that with the money he earns from his LIV Golf exploits, he will build a multi-sports and educational complex in Dallas.

“With the resources that I have now, it doesn’t mean I can sit on my butt and do nothing,” he said. “At a certain point you realize that there is more to life than golf and that is what LIV Golf allows me to do.”

DeChambeau played alongside Donald Trump last week, with the most recent LIV event taking place at his Bedminster field.

“He’s a really, really good golfer. He hits it down the middle of the fairway and he’s got a good game with the irons and he puts pretty well,” DeChambeau said at the time. But it was an honor. I mean, every time you play with a president, whether approved or seated, is simply an honor, no matter who he is.

“Very lucky to have a relationship with him, and he’s always been generous to me.”

But one relationship that has been affected is that of Tiger Woods.

Greg Norman, the commissioner of LIV Golf, told Tucker on Monday that Woods turned down an offer of between $700 million and $800 million to join the breakaway series.

And speaking to Sports Illustrated in late July, DeChambeau said he hadn’t spoken to Woods since he made the LIV move.

I have the utmost respect for what you have to say. For me personally, to be my own human being, I am going to work even harder to prove the fact that I am worth the price,” he said.

“We’ve been pretty close and unfortunately we haven’t talked, someday we will again, and I’m always open to chatting with anyone.

“I have no problem with that and I hope we can agree.”
