Bryson DeChambeau’s decision surprised everyone. Bryson confirmed his arrival at LIV Golf, and Rory McIlroy commented on such a decision.
"I think my stance on it has been pretty clear from the start. It's not something that I want to participate in," he said, as quoted by skysports.
"I certainly understand the guys that went and understand what their goals and their ambitions are in their life, and I'm certainly not knocking anyone for going. "It is their life. It is their decision. They can live it the way they want to, but, for me, I want to play on the PGA Tour against the best players in the world.
Deciding factor: Money
Rory McIlroy believes that the main motive for all players is money! "I was speaking to a few people yesterday and one of the comments was any decision that you make in your life that is purely for money usually doesn't end up going the right way.
"Obviously, money is a deciding factor in a lot of things in this world but if it is purely for money, it never seems to go the way you want it to, and I've had that before a couple of times before in my life."
Although he has never criticized those who want to compete in LIV Golf, McIlroy is clear in his decision "There are other things that are a part of it too, but it is a weird time in professional golf. I said it a couple of weeks ago, we are just going to have to see how this season plays out, and if any other guys do decide to go another direction than the established tours, see what the consequences are.
"For me right now, I can only speak personally. It is not something I envisage ever doing and I'm happy playing on the PGA Tour. I have a nice schedule, but I can pick for myself. I can spend a lot of time at home with my family if I want to, prioritise the majors and there is nothing about my schedule or my life or my earnings or anything that I would change."
