LIV Golf player hits out at Brandel Chamblee claim: "1000% not true!"

Golf analyst and former PGA Tour player Brandel Chamblee has not exactly shied away from putting the controversial LIV Golf Invitational series on full blast.

In recent weeks and months Chamblee has taken aim at the LIV Golf players, accusing them of being willing participants sportswashing at the hands of the Saudi Arabian government.

He feels so strongly about the situation that he believes LIV Golf frontman Phil Mickelson should be removed from the Hall of Fame.

After the first LIV Golf event at Centurion Club a few weeks ago, Chamblee also went on an epic rant as he claimed those who are and will play in the super-rich events are “destroying” golf.

"When I hear these players say that they are 'growing the game'... it makes me wanna puke,” he said.

“They're destroying the game. And they are destroying their reputations. 

"This is one of the saddest days in the history of golf. Watching these players come together for money and show to the world…they are showing us that they are the greediest, most self-serving, self-interesting, wilfully blind players in the world of golf today."

Well, tell us how you really feel.

Over the weekend, Chamblee had a pretty bold claim:

This was totally refuted according to ESPN reporter and former PGA Tour caddie Michael Collins, who put Chamblee’s claim to an unnamed LIV Golf player:

The next LIV Golf Invitational series event will take place in Portland, Oregon at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club.

Along with Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Bryson DeChambeau and Bryson DeChambeau will make their debuts. Mexican Abraham Ancer has also been announced as a LIV Golf player.

DeChambeau and Koepka have been named captains for the next $25m tournament.

Koepka turned heads when he was announced to the LIV Golf roster minutes into a press conference held by PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan.

He previously distanced himself from a move.

Whereas DeChambeau said he would have “a new type of legacy” after confirming that his move to LIV Golf was “a business decision”.
