Bryson DeChambeau’s decision to perform at LIV Golf surprised many, especially since he had only words of praise for PGA and did not plan to perform at LIV Golf. "While there has been a lot of speculation surrounding my support for another tour, I want to make it very clear that as long as the best players in the world are playing the PGA Tour, so will I." His agent, Brett Falkoff, believes this will be a good challenge for DeChambeau "Bryson has always been an innovator.
Having the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something unique has always been intriguing to him. Pro golf as we know it is changing and it's happening quickly."

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman believes that DeChambeau's energy and quality will be of great importance to LIV Golf.
"Bryson DeChambeau is an exciting addition to LIV Golf's supercharged style of play. "He is passionate about the sport, innovative in his approach and committed to pushing the boundaries in pursuit of excellence. "He's not afraid to think outside the box and supports our mission of doing things differently to grow our game.
"The power and energy he brings to the course will deliver added electricity to our competition in Portland and beyond." Sky Sports News reporter Jamie Weir had an interesting analysis, and we are sharing a part of it: "So this is yet another big blow to the PGA Tour.
It's now 18 players, Bryson DeChambeau included, who will have lost their PGA Tour status and how many more of these superstars can they afford to lose before they perhaps are even forced into an embarrassing climbdown and these guys are told you can stay on the PGA Tour and you can play in the Saudi golf series as well.
"It's a fascinating time at the moment in the world of golf and who knows what is going to happen next."
