Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - Bryson DeChambeau plans to chase down Cameron Smith and Talor Gooch with glory at LIV Golf Jeddah
JEDDAH: In-form Crushers GC Captain Bryson DeChambeau is relishing a chance to capture another title at the upcoming regular-season finale at LIV Golf Jeddah presented by ROSHN.
The big-hitting superstar and 2020 US Open winner is aiming to become the 2023 LIV Golf Individual Champion in Saudi Arabia — and heads to the Middle East full of confidence following a late surge that saw victory in LIV Golf Chicago in the last event.
DeChambeau is on a run of hot form this summer — the highlight including becoming the fourth player on a top-level tour to shoot 58, to capture his first LIV Golf title at Greenbrier in August.
“Anytime you can get in the winner’s circle is pretty special and makes all the hard work worth it for sure,” said DeChambeau.
“I would probably say I’m playing the most consistent good golf of my life. When I shot 58 earlier this year that was probably the best golf I’ve ever played and along when I won the US Open. It’s fair to say this little stretch has been pretty sweet for me. Let’s hope it continues in Jeddah and beyond.
“It’s a cliche but I just kept trying to hit as many fairways as I could and hit the irons close and make some putts. When I’m on a roll like that, I get serious momentum like a train and it’s hard to stop. You just have to take advantage of moments when you’re in the zone like that as it doesn’t happen often,” he added.
Ripper GC Captain Cameron Smith and RangeGoats GC star Talor Gooch are the only other golfers with a mathematical chance of claiming the title, which will be decided in Jeddah at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club.
Australian star Smith tops the Individual standings with 170 points, while Gooch is at 162 points and DeChambeau at 146 points following his victory Sunday at LIV Golf Chicago.
Added DeChambeau: “Both Cam and Talor are world-class players — they’ve been on fire throughout this LIV Golf season with multiple wins and some unbelievable rounds. But I’ll keep pushing and put some pressure on them in Jeddah where the individual title will be won or lost.
“I’ve played at Royal Greens in Jeddah a few times now. I know the course pretty well — definitely holes that are gettable. But it gets really windy and tricky, which makes it a really solid test. There’s some beautiful holes right by the Red Sea — 16, 17, 18 are great closing holes and can bring plenty of drama. This is the business end of our season and you’ve got to make a bunch of putts and go low to keep competing,” said DeChambeau.
“I’m a few points behind so will need things to go my way. Me and my team will go hard — excited to see what we can make happen.”
The Jeddah tournament is the final opportunity to secure points in the individual standings for all 48 players. Those who finish in the top 24 in the overall standings will lock-in their position in the LIV Golf League for the next season.
Players finishing in the “Open Zone” — positions 25 to 44 — however, may face trade or release by their respective teams. Meanwhile, those finishing in positions 45 and below sitting in the “Drop Zone” will be relegated and will automatically qualify for the league’s promotional tournament, where they will have the opportunity to earn their spot back for the 2024 season.
