LIV Golf's Bryson DeChambeau says it was "sad" that "really nobody" was around the 18th green Sunday to congratulate Brooks Koepka after his PGA Championship victory.
DeChambeau, 29, is in Washington, D.C., this week with the rest of LIV Golf for their seventh event of 2023.
Last week, he was one of 16 members of the Saudi-backed league who made the trip up to Oak Hill Country Club in New York for the year's second major.
The PGA Tour's rival league produced a solid set of results at the tournament, highlighted by Koepka becoming the first player to win a major as a LIV Golf member.
The 33-year-old won by two strokes at 9-under par over the PGA Tour's Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler for the fifth major title of his career.
DeChambeau was LIV's next-best player at the tournament, finishing tied for fourth at 3-under par.
He was also one of, what he says were few, players behind the 18th green ready to congratulate Koepka on his impressive achievement.
It's something that few would've expected a couple of years ago when the pair appeared to constantly get on each other's nerves.
So, on Wednesday, DeChambeau told reporters his reasoning for being there for his former rival:

DeChambeau, who was paired with Koepka for Saturday's third round, was also asked by reporters about the booing he received from fans during the PGA Championship:
DeChambeau, Koepka, and the rest of LIV Golf will tee off Friday at Trump National Golf Club in Washington for the latest LIV event.
On Thursday, it was announced that DeChambeau's Crushers GC had been forced to make a player swap ahead of the tournament.
