After a whirlwind of LIV announcements Tuesday, the merry-go-round of news continued on Wednesday. U.S. Open Champion, Bryson DeChambeau, officially committed to LIV Golf’s first U.S.-based event at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club outside Portland, Oregon on June 30.
The news trickled out Tuesday night, with The Telegraph reporting that both DeChambeau and Master’s champion, Patrick Reed, are committing to the first LIV event in the states.
Bryson DeChambeau Makes It Official
Bryson DeChambeau’s agent, Brett Falkoff, confirmed that DeChambeau is indeed competing in the next event in the Saudi-backed golf league.

The confirmation of Bryson DeChambeau gives further firepower to LIV’s splinter-tour legitimacy. The anticipation of Patrick Reed and former Players champion, Rickie Fowler, will provide for more completion.
Currently, LIV Golf has the endorsement of two-time Major champions, Dustin Johnson and Martin Kaymer. They also have six-time Major champion, Phil Mickelson, among many other Tour players.
The PGA Tour hasn’t announced the penalties for those players who still hold Tour cards and defy the Tour’s order. The Tour denied all player waivers to compete in the LIV series and has said that those players who still move forward could face suspension or banishment from the PGA Tour.
Players like Johnson, Kevin Na, Sergio Garcia, and others have resigned their PGA Tour membership in order to avoid these consequences.
The first LIV event is set to begin Friday at the Centurion Club outside London.
