LIV Golf's Bryson DeChambeau slams PGA Tour, whinges about OWGR (again!)

Bryson DeChambeau took a renewed aim at golf's world rankings before the LIV Golf League event in Singapore as he insisted that he doesn't miss playing on the PGA Tour. 

DeChambeau stood alongside Bubba Watson to answer a few questions from the media on Tuesday before his Crushers tee it up at Sentosa Golf Club this weekend. 

The rival league is still without OWGR-accreditation and it's still something that is causing consternation among the LIV Golf ranks.

Phil Mickelson? He reckons world rankings are no longer a credible way of selecting fields for golf's four major championships. 

Talor Gooch won LIV Golf Adelaide but saw his world ranking drop by two places. 

DeChambeau, who is currently the World No. 178 having previously occupied a position inside the top-10 less than two years ago, reckons a resolution needs to be made before they become 'obsolete'. 

He added: 

"But again, if the majors and everything continue to have that as their ranking system, then they are biting it quite heavily.
"Again, I'm in a lawsuit, so I can't say much more. I'd have much more to say. It's very disappointing that that's the way it goes because it's not right, and I hope people can see through that.
"It's disappointing that somebody takes such a hard stance. I mean, when you are looking at a situation, I always try and take both sides and look at them equally and say, okay, what's the best for everyone and everything, not say: 'This is the way it needs to be done, this is the way it's been done and this is how it should stay.'
"It's kind of -- humans are always moving forward in a -- I guess you could say, an innovative direction, and this is just another one of those steps and I hope they catch on pretty quickly, because they are going to run out of business pretty soon."

When asked if he missed the PGA Tour, DeChambeau simply said: 'No'. 

But he explained there are certain tournaments that he really likes playing, such as the Memorial at Jack's place. 

"Milkshakes were unbelievable," he said. "That's their undoing, not ours."
