Bryson DeChambeau commits to WORLD LONG DRIVE event after Ryder Cup!

Bryson DeChambeau may still be shunning the media but he has confirmed on his Instagram - apparently, as he has blocked us on there - that he will be participating in The Professional Long Driver's Association World Championship in September.

The long drive championship will take place in Mesquite, Nevada, from September 27 to October 1, meaning it falls just two days after the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

DeChambeau, who is already assured of a place in Steve Stricker's US Ryder Cup side, told his followers that he wants to take part in the Long Drive event to help grow the game of golf.

"This is an amazing opportunity to grow the game and the sport in general!" said DeChambeau on Instaram.

"I want to show the world how incredibly talented and hard-working these athletes are.

"I've been working hard to get my game up to their speeds so I have a chance but will still continue to play my best golf with my regular day job."

DeChambeau currently leads the PGA Tour Driving Distance this season on 321.7 yards, but he has belted a number of drives over the 400-yard mark on a regular basis.

The big-hitting American lies ninth in the season-long FedEx Cup race heading into this week's BMW Championship, but he will be looking to improve his recent form having picked up just one top-10 finish in his last nine competitive starts on the PGA Tour.
