Bryson DeChambeau labelled accusations LIV Golf is merely an exercise in sportswashing as 'completely inaccurate'.
The rebel series is playing their first ever event in Australia this week and DeChambeau is part of the 48-man, 12-team field looking to get a piece of the $25m prize purse.
On a personal note, DeChambeau will want to improve after what can only be described as a lacklustre display in LIV's inaugural 2022 season.
His best individual performance came in Portland where he finished outright 10th in the invitational. Thus far his best effort was a 16th in Orlando.
That immediately prompted DeChambeau to get involved in a lawsuit. To this day, he is still involved in the antitrust litigation.
DeChambeau also struggled with injuries and in February he parted ways with Cobra Puma Golf. He was blasted by a former rep for his alleged behaviour.
"He thinks there is a magic bullet out there," the exasperated rep said. "He's looking for a unicorn."
The American, 29, also sadly had to deal with the death of his father.
The rival league has faced plenty of accusations that Saudi Arabia are using sport to soften their image globally in a practice known as sportswashing.
DeChambeau has previously trumpeted the line that he's 'not a politician' and therefore cannot really deal with such questions.
Though he claimed the notion is completely inaccurate.
Unsurprisingly, LIV Golf chief Greg Norman also faced the same question.
Norman also revealed that they are strongly considering launching a women's tour.
