Bryson DeChambeau: LIV Golfers deserve to play in major tournaments

Bryson DeChambeau, after the excellent performance of LIV Golfers at the PGA Championship, spoke about the chances of LIV Golfers to play in major competitions. Bryson believes that certain exemptions should be made, considering the quality that LIV Golfers possess.

“There’s been numerous ideas brought up,” -he said, as quoted by nationalclubgolfer.com “One that we’re all looking at right now, at least from my perspective and what I’ve heard so far is just creating an exemption category for LIV players based on how they play during the course of the year.

“That would be the most fair and opportune thing for LIV golfers considering the fields that we have, the major champions we have, and the elite level of play that we have each and every week. If they’re able to do that, I think everything is good.

The OWGR points, we’ve gone so far down the list now that it’s really difficult to make us even relevant. That was part of their play, which is fine. It is what it is. But I think there’s another route to the majors”.

As far as DeChambeau is concerned, LIV Golfers deserve to be able to participate in the biggest tournaments in the world. The qualities of many of them have been demonstrated countless times over the years.

The LIV Golf brand does not seem to get a lot of attention from the media or others in the industry. They hope that in the years to come they will be able to attract more attention to themselves and become a respected tour.

“It proves that we can play in major championships, proves that the schedule is good enough for us to win major championships,” he added. “We have numerous players up on the leaderboard. Mito played well last round; Cam played well; I did all right; Brooks winning.

It’s huge in general. It’s an individual sport, but there’s a team component to it now, and it’s really cool to see how they’re playing well not only for their teams and for themselves but for an organisation that deserves to be mentioned a lot more in a better light than what it is”.
