Tiger Woods' former coach Hank Haney could only laugh as Bryson DeChambeau dropped two places in the world rankings despite carding a final round of 12-under 58 to claim his maiden LIV Golf win.

DeChambeau tore round The Greenbrier's Old White course on 6 August, notching 13 birdies and one bogey. 

His score matched the lowest round ever on the PGA Tour, set by Jim Furyk at the 2016 Travelers at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut. 

There have only been a handful of players that have carded 58. Japan's Ryo Ishikawa, South Korean Kim Seong-hyeon, German Stephan Jager and Spaniard Alejandro del Rey have all hit the same mark. 

Later, DeChambeau said it was 'probably' the greatest moment in his career. 

Which is a bold statement considering he was part of the successful United States side that demolished the Europeans 19-9 at the last Ryder Cup in Whistling Straits and he also claimed the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

He entered the week ranked 107th in the Official World Golf Ranking but has now dropped two places. 

As you will no doubt know, LIV Golf are still not accredited by the organisation. 

The rival league submitted their application before the 151st Open but since the updates on their bid have been few and far between. 

Some golfers, such as Phil Mickelson, have suggested this is because of the game's governing bodies are colluding not to award LIV points. 

Cameron Smith also famously lashed out. "It's a pain," he said of the situation before teeing it up in Adelaide. 

Woods' former coach Haney also found it amusing that DeChambeau has dropped down two spots:

Why don't LIV Golf have OWGR points?

The most recent update we had came just after the 151st Open at Royal Liverpool. 

A short time after Martin Slumbers, chief exec of the R&A, issued that update another report emerged suggesting those on the board of the OWGR are concerned about potential cheating in LIV events. 

It is said the impasse over LIV's application hinges on:

  • The integrity of the individual amid a team contest
  • The lack of a merit-based qualifying system

Golf Digest previously reported:

"The most vexing issue relates to competitive integrity. LIV officials said any such claims are fallacious and reportedly went so far as to ask if OWGR representatives were accusing its players of cheating. LIV contends that it hasn't found a scenario where 'team play impacts individual play in a meaningful way.' And according to sources, LIV's response to that line of questioning was, 'If you've got a concern that they're gonna throw a score because of their team, you're effectively calling them cheats." 

LIV Golf are back in action this week at Trump National Bedminster.
