Unlike Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Kevin Na, to name a few, Bryson DeChambeau has not resigned from his PGA Tour membership and insisted he would like to play on the Tour again. in the future.
Speaking ahead of his LIV Golf Series debut at Pumpkin Ridge in Portland, the American said: “I haven’t resigned my PGA Tour membership. I want to play the PGA Tour. It’s not my decision. for me if i can or can’t play but i would love to keep playing and i would say give me more opportunities to play but at the moment the current structure i believe over time – we’ll see how that will happen.”
As it stands, DeChambeau and all of the LIV Golf Series defectors are suspended from the PGA Tour after commissioner Jay Monahan laid down the gauntlet in a heavily worded letter that informed players they were “suspended or otherwise more eligible to participate” on the circuit.
DeChambeau was one of LIV Golf’s initial targets earlier in the year and his involvement was seemingly inevitable when reports surfaced that he had informed fellow PGA Tour members at the Saudi International that he would not be competing. more at the Tour, only to backtrack once these reports were made public, citing them as “completely inaccurate”.
The former US Open champion then released a statement confirming the remarks and insisted that: “As long as the best players in the world play on the PGA Tour, so do I.” His dramatic turnaround was confirmed heading into the inaugural event at the Centurion Club and is finalized with his Portland debut.
In addition to competing in the LIV Golf Series and the PGA Tour, the former US Open champion has his eyes set on off-course activities. “I want to be able to do stuff on YouTube, Instagram, social media, that’s also important to me. I love showing kids behind the scenes, kind of an in-depth version of what I do outside of gaming as well, and even just going to play nine holes on a random golf course and so on I hope it’s fun for kids and people growing up watching us and hopefully over time it will everyone to follow this trend and let’s see what we can do, not just on the golf course, but off the golf course.”
The American is right in the LIV Golf mix as captain of the Crushers team; which also consists of Shaun Norris, Justin Harding and Peter Uihlein.
