Bryson DeChambeau Tells 9/11 Families It's Time for 'Forgiveness': After taking $125 million from the government of Saudi Arabia to leave the PGA Tour and join LIV Golf, Bryson DeChambeau was asked on CNN about 9/11 families objecting to LIV because of recently revealed Saudi links to the attacks. DeChambeau suggested there needs to be "forgiveness." He said, "I don't know exactly what [the 9/11 families] are feeling, I can't ever know. But I have a huge amount of respect for their position and what they believe, nor do I want anything like that to ever occur again. I think as we move forward from that we've got to look towards a pathway to peace, especially in forgiveness, especially if we're trying to mend the world and make it a better place. I think this is what they're trying to accomplish, what LIV is trying to accomplish, the PIF is trying to accomplish, what we're all trying to accomplish is a better world for everybody." Money well spent, MBS.

Beyond words.

If I was standing behind the gallery ropes when that guy was putting, my rendition of "Get in the hole!" would be a bit different from most other people's.

Hard to believe that we're at a place where we yearn for the good old days when golfers had sponsors like Dude Wipes and Monkey Knife Fight.

DeChambeau is greedy enough to take the money and dumb enough to carry water for the Saudis. That's quite a combination.

The crowning glory of the interview is where he defends the Saudis by saying "nobody's perfect."
