LIV Golfer Bryson DeChambeau spoke about the OWGR and the fact that LIV Golf still hasn't been awarded ranking points during a guest appearance on The Rick Shiels Golf Show podcast. Their application was declined, and many were disappointed by this decision.

DeCahmbeau thinks he knows why individuals behave this way. Their goal is to make LIV Golf irrelevant. "I think it’s par for the course in regards to the way that people and organizations view LIV. I know their agenda.

We know their whole playbook, we see exactly what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to hold us out long enough to where we’re irrelevant. 'Oh we’ll give you points now, we’re gonna play nice in the sandbox'

But then we’re all irrelevant, we don’t have enough points to even fill a field."- Bryson DeChambeau said, as quoted by!

Bryson DeChambeau: What I do care about is the people that aren’t being ranked

The fact that LIV Golfers can't play in the biggest tournaments is what frustrates Bryson and the others.

However, it seems that Bryson is more concerned about his colleagues than himself. He is satisfied with the second part of the season in which he showed maturity and quality. However, nothing can stop his frustration with what is currently happening on the golf scene.

"This last half of the season, yes, I feel like I’ve played way better golf. And that’s because the last three Majors I made the cut and played somewhat decent in them, 4th at the PGA, British Open I didn’t do very well, the US Open I did ok.

That’s what’s really holding me at. If I didn’t have those this year, I’d be 500-and-something, probably. And you know what, it’s OK, I don’t hold myself to that level. I’m not bitter, I don’t care.

What I do care about is the people that aren’t being ranked right that don’t have a chance to be in the Majors."- DeChambeau continued. This great golfer set the example of Joaquin Niemann, whom he feels sorry for.

Bryson believes Joaquin deserves to play in the Majors. The fact is that LIV Golfers will have to be patient and hope that there will be certain changes. "I’m in the Majors, I’m lucky enough that 2020 was an amazing year for me and the US Open really set me up for a lot of success but I feel bad for the guys like Joaquin Niemann that deserve a spot, he is good enough to play in every Major championship.

He’s a top 50 player in the world, doesn’t have that opportunity. Talor Gooch, he won three times this year. If you can’t see past that, I’m sorry, I don’t know how to rationalize with that individual.

It’s not [right], because there’s plenty of guys who play well during the PGA Tour season and don’t play well in Majors, and they’re up there in the top 50."
