Bryson DeChambeau seems to confirm that his former friend and Ryder Cup teammate Tiger Woods clipped him after the golf scientist move LIV golf.

DeChambeau joined the Saudi-backed start-up circuit last year for a fee said to be north of $125 million and aside from his suspension from the PGA Tour, he appears to have lost strong PGA Tour supporter Tiger Woods as a friend and mentor.

The pair regularly played practice rounds together and paired at the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris where they lost 5 & 4 to Molinari and Fleetwood, nicknamed “Moliwood”, in the foursomes on Saturday afternoon.

DeChambeau was asked by Adam Schupack from Golfweek When someone clipped him from the PGA Tour after LIV, the 2020 US Open champion replied: “Yeah definitely I’m sure you can guess who.

“Yes, I will not throw anyone under the bus. He was a great friend. I texted him on his birthday. It is what it is.

“He has his views on it and thinks we might hurt his record. If anything, no one will ever touch their record. That’s it, that’s the bottom line. There’s a chance to take the game even further and I hope one day he’ll see the vision that we all have out here.”

It seems like evidence that another friendship has fallen by the wayside since the emergence of LIV, with Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy’s public fallout making headlines over the past 12 months. McIlroy was best man at Garcia’s wedding but stated that he was “No way” would the pair rekindle. said Garcia to the Northern Irishman is “lack of maturity”.

Not all friendships are in shambles, however. Bubba Watson said this week he is play next week’s Masters Par 3 contest with PGA Tour friends and that it was the media that stirred things up.

“I’ll be honest, man. It’s just embarrassing in the media,” said the two-time Masters winner.

“I spoke to people who will be there. I’m going to sign up with Jason Day and Cam Young in the par 3. Some guys have already asked me to play a few practice rounds. The media are the only ones pushing it. I have nothing against anyone.”

DeChambeau also told Golfweek that he’s spoken to Dallas players like Jordan Spieth and Will Zalatoris multiple times, so it seems Tiger Woods is the only player to knock him out so far.

The couple will both be with Augusta National next week for the 2023 Masters. Before that, however, Bryson scores in Event 3 of the Orange County National in Orlando LIV Golf League.

His Crushers GC side won the first event of the season in Mexico but his own form was lacking. Since joining LIV last June, the former world No. 4’s two best finishes have been 10th in the 48-man fields. He finished his first year 21st overall and after two events is currently 34th overall.
