In the world of golf, there was a massive development on Tuesday which saw the (Official Golf World Rankings) OWGR committee reject the application of LIV Golf. The Saudi-backed tour had applied for the allotment of the OWGR points for their players. Fellow LIV Golfer Bryson DeChambeau has now proposed a unique qualification method.
The major reason the LIV Golf wanted OWGR points is that their player kept on dropping in rankings. This led to them being unable to qualify for the major championships of golf. DeChambeau termed the decision by the committee as “sad” and said that the league must “find another way” to earn their places in the majors.
The American golfer has now stated that the top twelve players in the final LIV standings should automatically qualify for the majors. “Top 12 on the list, the money list, at the end of the year or the points list at the end of the year, would be I think obvious for major championships to host the best players in the world at those four events each year,” he said.

While the proposal by Bryson DeChambeau is a unique one, whether it will be considered remains to be seen. He though would be hoping to put this issue behind him and focus on what is in store for the future. He will now be preparing for a massive showdown event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as the final regular season of LIV Golf draws closer.
This next event will be the last regular event of LIV Golf. This event will be followed by the mega $50,000,000 finale in Miami. It was originally scheduled to be hosted in the Middle East country but was surprisingly shifted to the Trump Doral course.
While the grand finale of the event will likely determine the team championships, this event will be important for several players. Bryson DeChambeau currently sits at third in the points rankings behind Talor Gooch and Cameron Smith. His two wins this year, one of which included a low round score of 58, have seen him come into this race. The 30-year-old only trails his rivals by one win as both Gooch and Smith have picked up three wins in their LIV careers.
These three golfers will kick start the event will teeing off first at the shotgun start on Day 1. A victory for DeChambeau could see snatch the individual trophy from the hands of Gooch and Smith. Fans are now eager to see which one of them comes out on top of this three-horse championship race.
