Bryson DeChambeau claimed he “knows personally” that members of LIV Golf will be able to return to the PGA Tour in the future and drew an analogy to a strange pizza shop to describe the controversy surrounding the sport.

DeChambeau joined players including Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson in joining the breakout tour, which has scheduled eight events for 2022 before a more expanded schedule next season.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has indefinitely suspended any member who joined the Greg Norman preliminary series, although DeChambeau is confident a resolution can be found to allow players to play in both rounds.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said they could not compete with the financially Saudi-backed LIV Invitational Series in a statement made ahead of the Travelers Championships.

“It doesn’t make sense (the ban),” said Deschamps. Fox News. “No, I’m not worried about that. I think it will be resolved. Personally, I know it will be resolved, whether it’s legal or whether they come to the table and settle. I definitely think everything washes itself into the future, very soon.”

Norman previously said banning LIV golfers from other rounds was “retaliatory” and something “that bridges the gap between [PGA] Tour and its members”, while DeChambeau used an unusual comparison to try to explain why the new tour could grow the game.

DeChambeau added: “It’s very strange because it’s like — let’s use that as a reference. I heard this earlier this week. You have a pizza shop that’s been around for 50 years and every customer goes there and this is a great product.

“Suddenly a new pizza shop opened, right? And they start paying customers to come eat with them, and the pizza sure is a little better than the pizza, right? And then, all of a sudden, this original pizza house, if you go there, we love you to come back to our pizza shop, what’s wrong with this economic model?

Love believes those who have remained loyal to the PGA Tour are “sick” of the Saudi-backed split, which will expand to 14 events in the league next year.

Members of DP World have won a court battle to halt the penalties, pending a decision on a full appeal, and Love believes a similar legal challenge by players indefinitely suspended from the PGA Tour could spark a dramatic backlash .

“If LIV players file a lawsuit and are allowed to play on the PGA Tour, players are sick of it,” Love said. “We understand that we make the rules on the PGA Tour and the commissioner enforces our rules and we don’t want these guys playing, picking our tournaments.

“We keep all the papers. We say to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and Washington: ‘No, we support the rules.’ We don’t want these people to play. We don’t care what the courts say.” The core option is to say “Well, if they have to play in our events, we won’t.”

Reed commits to Asian Tour events

Patrick Reed has committed to play in two Asian Tour events this month, just weeks after he said the limited schedule was one of his requests to join the LIV golf course.

With the upcoming LIV golf event not until September 2-4 in Boston, Reed confirmed that he will play the Asian Tour International Series events from August 11-14 in Singapore and South Korea a week later.

Reed, who previously said the FedExCup schedule is “forced to play, and it does nothing for you mentally and physically,” is one of several LIV golfers scheduled to feature in Singapore.

Asian Tour events offer a much smaller prize pool than LIV Golf events, with the $270,000 first prize compared to $4 million offered at Bedminster, although it remains a way for LIV Golf members to earn world ranking points.
