‘I’m again broke’ – Bryson reveals how he’s been spending his $125+ million LIV money

Published

on

After signing a deal north of $125 million to join LIV Golf, Bryson DeChambeau has already reinvested most of his earnings.

DeChambeau recently joined the Country Club Adjacent podcast where he spoke about some of the things that he’s already done with the money he received in the massive deal.

The former U.S. Open champion told the podcast: “What’s cool about it though is that I’ve already put it [the money] in places that make sense, whether it’s my foundation, or real estate, being able to build a multi-sport complex, or taking care of my family, taking care of what we’ve got going with our content creation Regecy, numerous other things too.

“So, it’s already moved. I’m again broke.”

Bryson also spoke about his decision to join LIV Golf,

“One of the things for me it was a personal business decision. For me I run and operate my golf as a business as well as wanting to be one of the better players in the world. Second off, it was going to give me more resources and opportunities to reinvest in my local community, in Dallas, and back at my original home in California where I can do things for junior golf tours, improve my foundation, and also build the multi-sport complex I’m going to build here shortly in Dallas, and also give me more time to rest, the ability to have weeks off and recover my body in the way I want to so that I can be prepared to give it my all when it comes time, not be depleted every week and continuing to get depleted over the course of time.

“So that was one of the things. And then the last part is I saw that first event in London and how much fun everybody was having. That was exciting to me. And I wanted to be a part of something like that.”

DeChambeau will seek his second major championship next week when he tees it up at St. Andrews for the 150th Open Championship.

    The hell is “content creation” anyway? God, what an era.

    Also, this is how detached these guys are, and how crazy it is that they keep wanting to either play themselves as the victim or act as if they’re just like you and me with no money. Broke again – really! Bryson just turned that $125 million into long-term investments that will grow his wealth and keep him secure for eternity. And I don’t say that with envy – good form hime – but get out of her with this bs that, oh I spent it all and am back to square one. Dude you’re filthy rich and have autonomy to do whatever you want – stop pretending to not be and stop trying to act like your situation is relatable to the average person. Ridiculous crying poverty or even joking about it.

    Saudis own 25% of F1
    Anybody in the USA like that sport or care to boycott?
    Let the hypocrisy continue
    Rory have you ever been to a Nike factory ?

    Peace and Love

      No. Approximately 54 people in the US care about F1.

      If your brain correlates Vietnamese shoe factories with Saudi funded golf leagues that have zero interest in turning a profit, I’ve got nothing for you.

      When the PGA and R&A stop awarding prize money in Saudi backed petrodollars, please stop talking…

        Yup. Also, as somebody else here has pointed out, Saudi money — and money from other repressive regimes — has always been out there in sports, and none of these people ever said boo.

    LIV is “go fund me” for multi millionaires.

      A lot of those players were struggling on the PGA. The guys at or near the bottom aren’t millionaires. They are truly struggling to pay their bills and keep their families in the black.

      I think sending guys home on Friday afternoon with nothing is a recipe designed to ensure only the wealthy stay on tour. Yes, occasionally an exceptionally gifted player will break through, but those are relatively few.

        Come on man. For every new PGA player LIV adds they’re going to need to boot out or lessen the haul for the scrubs who got in early. At some point, someone will be going home, and LIV will either be home to the wealthy top 50 golfer or become irrelevant because the actual product is terrible because people aren’t going to consistently watch people ranked 300th in the world play 54 holes of golf. Whether it’s LIV, PGA, or DP, there will be a bottom rung of players who aren’t earning premium cash and frankly do deserve to. Professional sports by definition and by what is claims to offer to fans is meant for elite athletes and performers – it isn’t a charity meant to pay out to anyone who plays the games.

    Some of the guys today, as evidenced here, are not looking to play competitive golf for the next 40 years. Even if he can’t play in any more majors (& I think that remains to be seen), he has 125 million in the bank to soothe any disappointments.

Charlie Woods gives first interview after firing 68 at Notah Begay qualifying event

Published

on

Over the weekend, Charlie Woods participated in the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.

With his dad on his bag, Charlie did not disappoint.

Charlie finished tied for fourth in the Boys 12-13 division thanks to a career low four-under 68.

After his round, Charlie gave an interview and in the process gave a lot of credit to the fifteen-time major champion helping him out throughout the event.

“Dad told me to stay patient. I just played steady golf,” Charlie said.

I’m sure we will hear a lot more of the name “Charlie Woods” in the coming years.

‘He didn’t look right’ – Tiger’s mobility issues reportedly continue as he caddies for son Charlie

Published

on

Over the weekend, 13-year-old Charlie Woods played in a junior golf tournament and shot a career low 68 on his way to a second-place finish.

As great as the performance was for Charlie, a big part of the story was who he had on his bag. That’s right, his dad.

Tiger Woods caddied for Charlie during the event, and according to those in attendance, he “didn’t look right.”

According to @TWLegion on Twitter, the man who took a picture of Tiger Woods said he was in a cart all day and didn’t look completely healthy.

This adds further speculation to the health concerns of Tiger Woods. Many speculated that his lack of presence at the Presidents Cup was odd, considering he could have used a cart like the other captains of the American team. He was on the phone with Davis Love III during the match, but it was reported that he wasn’t in attendance due to “physical limitations.”

The last time we saw Tiger on the golf course — a missed cut at The Open in July — he didn’t look like he was ready to play professional golf competitively. Although his caddie Joe LaCava has speculated that we could see Woods tee it up a few times prior to the Masters in 2023, the recent developments don’t seem promising.

‘I was pretty p****d off’ – Justin Thomas on Si-Woo Kim’s shush celebration during feisty Sunday clash

Published

on

With the Internationals down four points heading into Sunday singles in the Presidents Cup, The United States threw out their de-facto leader Justin Thomas in the first match of the day. In a match where it was crucial to set the tone, International Team captain Trevor Immelmann surprisingly chose Si Woo Kim to counter Thomas.

The South Korean did not disappoint, and although the United States went on to win pretty comfortably, Kim did his job in defeating Thomas by 1-up.

Tensions ran high throughout the day, with Thomas seemingly upset over Kim’s unwillingness to concede a few short putts early in the match.

It was a bit surprising to see Thomas take exception with Kim’s insistence that he finish out some short putts, considering that the Internationals needed to make up quite a large deficit. Additionally, Thomas had been a stickler all week about giving his opponents anything that bordered on “a gimme”.

After a big par putt on the 15th, a clearly emotional “JT” gave a big fist pump in celebration. Usually quite reserved, Si Woo Kim took notice and quieted the crowd after a big par save to match Thomas.

Once again, Thomas took exception to Si Woo, admitting after the match that he was “p***** off “at Kim’s theatrics.

“Honestly, at the time, I was pretty p***** off,” said Thomas afterwards. “I think when you’re in the moment, when you’re on the other side of it, it’s something that gets you motivated, gets you pumped up a little bit.”

When asked about his reaction to the made putt, Kim said he saw Patrick Reed do the celebration at the 2014 Ryder Cup and wanted to do something to match Thomas’ energy.

“I saw that Patrick [Reed] did it before, and yeah, JT give me fist pump, and then I had to do it. And I had to make it, and I made it. Then, like, yeah, I had to do something. I think that give me more energy.”

After all was said and done, Thomas admitted that Kim had the right to celebrate his victory.

“He hit the shots and made the putts better than I did the last three holes or, really, the last nine holes when he needed to,” said Thomas. “So, I can say whatever I want about it, but he beat me. So he has the upper hand on me. But we won the Cup so that’s all that matters.”
