Bryson DeChambeau: "We play for country"

The Bryson DeChambeau who plays LIV Golf tournaments today is different from the one we remember as the protagonist on the PGA Tour. Physically leaner and less aggressive in communication. Immediately after the PGA Championship won by Brooks Koepka, with whom he had established a strong rivalry on the PGA Tour, he wanted to express his thoughts on the status of LIV players At Oak Hill DeChambeau finished in fourth position, tied with Cameron Davis and Kurt Kitayama, earning precious points for the World Ranking, where he had slipped beyond the ninetieth position.

And the first consideration of the Modesto player takes its cue from here. The extreme difficulty that LIV players have in improving their world rankings represents a major obstacle to qualifying for the Majors, especially for those who no longer fall under other exemption categories.

Bryson DeChambeau, statements

“There are many proposals in this regard” “The one on which all of us (LIV players, NDR) agree, from my point of view and based on what I've heard, is to create a special category of exemption for the Majors dedicated to us, based on the results achieved during season" "It would be the most appropriate and fair thing for us LIV players, considering the fields of our tournaments, the number of Majors champions we have and the high level of play that is expressed" “If it were possible, it would be a good thing” "We've dropped so far in the OWGR rankings that we're no longer relevant." Ryder Cup chapter.

When specifically asked about his thoughts on including LIV players in Ryder's squads, the answer leaves no room for doubt: “As Brad Faxon (Team USA member in 1995 and 1997, Ed.) said, we play for our country, not for a Tour, nor for money.

And he's right" "If we are in a position to be a pick of the Captain or to get to the automatic qualifications (referring to the World Points, NDR), well, we deserve that place".
