DeChambeau Denies Being Offered $135M from Saudi-Backed Super Golf League
The intrigue continues with the Saudi-backed Super Golf League and current PGA Tour stars.
Following a report by Sportsmail that Bryson DeChambeau was offered $135 million to join the controversial league, DeChambeau has denied it.
On Thursday afternoon, DeChambeau replied to the story from his official Instagram page saying “wrong.”
DeChambeau did not talk to the media following his first round on Thursday in which he posted a 3-over par 73.

The continued news on DeChambeau comes a day after offers were reportedly made to Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood.
Westwood told the media that he signed a non-disclosure agreement.
It also comes a day after Phil Mickelson blasted the PGA Tour over its “Obnoxious Greed.”
The PGA Tour, USGA, DP World Tour and other golf governing bodies have previously stated that anyone who joins the new tour could face a lifetime ban.
