Bryson DeChambeau may not be involved in the 2022 Presidents Cup thanks to his defection to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, but that didn't stop his epic battle with a rope being revisited on day one at Quail Hollow as the United States raced into a 4-1 lead.
One of the new features of the TV coverage on Thursday was the introduction of a "captain cam". It makes you feel like you're watching an edition of The Match.
We're not really sure what the point of it is. But when the cameras went live on Davis Love III - who spoke earlier in the week about Phil Mickelson - it provided (at least unintentionally) the funniest moment of the day.
This moment came in the form of Love successfully navigating a rope. Of course, social media users were quick roast DeChambeau.
Davis Love III can drive a golf cart, reach to the other side, lift the rope & drive under it without issue. Bryson can’t even walk at 1 MPH under the rope, without running into it. LIV Golf makes players soft AF! https://t.co/mxuvByl0LX pic.twitter.com/j1E8UcMyBG— GO UTES!!!!!! (@PapaSmurfUTE) September 22, 2022

In case you're wondering what DeChambeau is up to this week, he's training for an upcoming long drive event on the PLDR.
The 29-year-old was training with German big hitter Martin Borgmeier, who posted this:
At least DeChambeau can see the funny side of it now.
In recent weeks DeChambeau has been speaking about how he doesn't have any "buyer's remorse" for joining the LIV Golf Tour.
He said he had to ultimately thank Tiger Woods for essentially creating the opportunity for LIV.
DeChambeau also addressed the hot topic of whether or not LIV will be granted world ranking points.
"We're going to get to a conclusion hopefully here in the coming months in regards to how this is all going to work out," he told the media. "But yeah, there will be tweaks. There will be adjustments on both ends.
"It's going to have to be. This has never been done before, and there has to be a compromise if we want to work effectively in this ecosystem."
