BROOKLYN, MA – Bryson DeChambeau says he has no plans to play in the PGA Tour Travelers Championship next week at TPC River Highlands.
DeChambeau, the 2020 US Open winner, joined the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series last week. He spoke briefly about his situation for travelers while he was at The Country Club but didn’t take any further questions.
“As of now, I won’t be playing next week,” Dechambeau told ESPN on Wednesday.
Several media reported last week that DeChambeau is set to join the LIV Golf Series, which Signing announced Friday on Twitter.
The PGA Tour suspended 17 players last week who participated in the inaugural LIV Golf event in London.
Two-time main winner Dustin Johnson was one of the players who quit their membership on the PGA Tour after deciding to join the new series, but DeChambeau, who didn’t play in London, hasn’t quit his membership yet.
The Travelers will likely be DeChambeau’s last appearance on the PGA Tour, since the upcoming LIV Golf event, which begins June 30 in Portland, Oregon, to push a similar suspension. PGA Tour golfers Patrick Reed and Pat Perez have also joined LIV Golf since last week’s tournament in London.
After arriving Monday at The Country Club, DeChambeau told Golf Channel that his decision to join the new series was a “commercial decision” and that it was “for the future of my family.”
“There was a lot of money to her… I get a life outside of golf too,” Deschamps told Golf Channel, adding that he would “love to play the PGA Tour events when they let me.” “
