Bryson DeChambeau on LIV Golf: It’s a business decision for my family’s future

Bryson DeChambeau will be competing in the LIV Golf, and many were surprised by his decision as he denied a few months ago that there was a chance he would appear in this tournament. However, things have changed, and DeChambeau explained why he decided to perform at LIV Golf:

“There was a lot of financials to it and a lot of time. I get to have a life outside of the game of golf as well,” DeChambeau said for skysports.

Bryson believes he can make huge money in the tournament, and obviously, the biggest motivation is money, but this decision was not easy to make, especially due to great public pressure. The PGA Tour will certainly not allow him to perform, although he still hopes so.

“It’s a business decision for my family’s future, and it gave me a lot of free time, so it cleared a lot things up for me”

“I think we’ll have a new legacy.

“It was very difficult. It’s been weighing on everybody out here for the past couple of years.

“For me, what’s gone on has not been great but they [Saudi Arabia] are moving in the right direction from what I can see and what we’ve had conversations about.

“I would love to play PGA Tour events when they would allow me to.”

DeChambeau also commented on the decision of Jay Monahan and others from the PGA to ban players who perform at LIV Golf.

“It’s not my decision to make. That’s someone else’s decision that’s making that for me,” DeChambeau concluded.

Terry Strada, the chair of 9/11 Families United, criticized Mickelson and his decision to compete in LIV Golf and considered it a betrayal. Phil replied:

“I would say to the Strada family, I would say to everyone that has lost loved ones, lost friends on 9/11 that I have deep, deep empathy for them. I can’t emphasise that enough,” he said.
