The drama between PGA Tour and LIV Golf players has been at a fever pitch for a long time now and it’s unfortunately led to some disintegrated friendships.
According to Bryson DeChambeau, that includes his former friendship with Tiger Woods.
While preparing for the 2023 Masters, DeChambeau told reporters on Thursday that Woods has cut him off over their dispute between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour.
DeChambeau, who left the PGA Tour for LIV Golf last year, was asked last week if anyone had cut him off over the move.
“Yeah, definitely. I’m sure you can guess who,” DeChambeau said, per GolfWeek’s Adam Schupak.
Now, he’s confirmed he was referring to Woods.
“He’s been a great friend,” DeChambeau continued. “I texted him on his birthday. It is what it is. He has his viewpoints on it and thinks we’re potentially hurting his record. If anything, nobody is ever going to touch his record.
“That’s just it, that’s the bottom line. There’s a chance to grow the game even more, and I hope one day he’ll see the vision that we all have out here.”
Woods hasn’t commented yet on the frosty relationship status but the superstar has been pretty vocal about how much he dislikes LIV and doesn’t think fondly of those who left the PGA to play for it.
One thing we know for sure is that it’s going to be a bit awkward at the Masters when all of these golfers are back together on the golf course once again.
