LIV’s representation on the team this week shows there is an avenue to qualify for the team as a member of the upstart tour. But as DeChambeau sees it, the standards are different for his brood versus the traditional Tour stars.
“We’re nothing different,” DeChambeau said. “We’re still competing. We’re still working super hard to be the best we possibly can be … I have no idea what it was or how it was like or who made that decision, but it would have been nice for them to consider us more because we’re pretty damn good out here.”
DeChambeau’s resume might’ve added another bullet point last week, but his Ryder Cup team section will (for the time being) remain as is.
“It definitely does sting a little bit,” he said. “But say what you want, we’re still golfers, and I personally think that given the way I played this week, I could have definitely racked up some points for Team USA.”
