Bryson DeChambeau has confirmed that he will play in the second event of the LIV golf series, which starts in Portland later this month.

DeChambeau has become the youngest high-profile player to join the Saudi-backed tour and plans to take part in the tournament at Pumpkin Ridge from June 30 to July 2.

However, 28-year-old Brett Falkoff’s agent confirmed that world number 28 will not be leaving the PGA Tour after speaking to PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan and his sponsors on Tuesday night, according to the Golf Channel.

Confirmation of DeChambeau’s decision came after LIV Golf earlier refused to deny a report claiming the 2020 US Open champion would have joined the series along with Patrick Reed and Ricky Fowler.

“Bryson has always been innovative,” Falkoff said. Having the opportunity to step into the ground floor of something unique has always piqued his interest. Pro Golf as we know it, changes and happens fast. ”

The move also comes less than a week after DeChambeau announced he would not be joining the separate LIV Golf series.

The first event of the LIV golf series starts on Thursday at the Centurion Club, with Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia among the 48 players.

Rory McIlroy says he can understand why some players are leaving to join the LIV Golf Series, but he maintains he is happy to play on the PGA Tour and will not consider leaving.

In February, DeChambeau denied being offered £ 100m to join the tour, writing on his official Twitter account: “While there has been much speculation about my support for another tour, I want to make it absolutely clear that as long as the best players in the world play PGA Tour, that’s what I want. ”

DeChambeau, an eight-time PGA Tour winner, recently distanced himself from the tour on Thursday, claiming he would not dare join at this stage of his career.

In February, Dustin Johnson and Bryson Deschamps threw away the backs of the Saudi series and dedicated themselves to their future on the PGA Tour.

“Of course there was a lot of talk,” he said after his opening round at the Memorial Tournament.

“For me personally, I do not think at this time I am in a place in my career where I can risk such things.

“I am loyal to the family I have built around me with sponsors and everything. And from now on, the world of golf is likely to change to some degree. I do not know what it is. It’s not my job to do that. I will continue to play and enjoy professional golf wherever it takes me, and play with the best players in the world. That’s all I really have, and that’s what I’m going to do for the rest of my life, because I want to be one of the best players in the world. ”

Five-time PGA Tour winner Fowler, who was close to the LIV tour, said Tuesday he was “fascinated” by the competition, but had not yet made a decision.

Ricky Fowler says the LIV tour is 'interesting and interesting', but insists he has not yet made a decision about his future.

“Competition is a good thing, it has always been. LIV is definitely interesting and intriguing. It’s worth looking at, but no, I did not make any decisions. It will be interesting to see how it all goes. ”

Mickelson: LIV Golf can do very well at the game

Mickelson says he feels “very good” about the balance that LIV Golf Series offers and added that he will not be leaving the PGA Tour during a tense press conference on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old ended his four-month self-imposed ban from the sport to take part in the first LIV golf invitational series at the Centurion Club this week.

Mickelson skipped his PGA Championship defense after slamming back on remarks he made about the Saudi-backed breakaway, and has faced the media for the first time since his participation in LIV Golf was confirmed on Monday.

Phil Mickelson says he had a “fantastic time” during his four-month off-competition and feels good about being a part of LIV Golf.

The six-time winner repeatedly said “I do not approve of human rights abuses” when asked about his reasons for participating in the tour, despite describing the Saudi system as “scary” in February, and emphasizing that LIV Golf “can do a lot”. “It’s good for the game.”

Addressing his breakaway, Mickelson said: “I had a great time, I had a four-month break from the game. It gave me time to continue with some of the work and therapy I was working on, in some areas I lack in my life.

“It gave me time to think about what I want to do in the future, what is best for me and what is best for the people I care about. It allows me to be more present and involved with the people I care about.

Mickelson defended and explained his decision to join LIV Golf in a long and sometimes awkward press conference for the six-time major champion.

“Therefore, when I think of being part of LIV Golf, I feel good about it.”

Mickelson also said he would not speak publicly about PGA “issues” and refused to deny being banned from the tour.

As a lifelong member of the PGA Tour, Mickelson has admitted he does not have to play any of their events, and sees “no reason” to give up his membership after Dustin Johnson resigned Tuesday.

However, he has confirmed that he will take part in the US Open next week – adding: “I look forward to it.”

The US confirmed on Tuesday that golfers taking part in this week’s LIV series opening will be allowed to play in next week’s US Open, provided they have already qualified.

What is the shape?

All 48 players compete against each other in the traditional beat-play style, where the lowest total of 54 holes of the No-Piece event is the winner, while the concept will help to adapt the players in team format.

Each team will have a designated LIV team leader, who will select their three open positions in the team through the Serpent Draft format, similar to those used on the Women’s European Tour of the Aramco Team Series.

For the first two rounds, each team’s best two strokes will be counted. For the third and final rounds, the best three points will count, with the team with the lowest overall score after 54 holes.

The format changes in the team tournament, which is a four-day, four-round knockout cycle of matches. The top four teams automatically get bees during the first round, while the remaining eight teams play against each other to see who advances to the quarterfinals.
