Tiger Woods’ ex-coach slams Bryson DeChambeau decision as ‘absolute joke

Hank Haney, the former swing coach of Tiger Woods, is not impressed with the US decision to leave U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau off of its four-man Olympic squad.

Hank Haney, the former coach of Tiger Woods, has criticized the decision to not choose U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau to represent the country in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

Despite his impressive major league performance, DeChambeau was not able to break into the four-player American roster, which was composed only of PGA Tour players. Along with Xander Schauffele, the current Olympic gold medallist, the top-ranked golfers Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, and Wyndham Clark are also present.

Woods’ former coach, Haney, has criticized the all-PGA decision as politically motivated, claiming that it was made with the intention of harming LIV Golf, the breakaway tour, and its players. Haney stated on X, “It’s a joke that @b_dechambeau isn’t on the American team. It’s just so wrong that they want to hurt @livgolf_league but the game of golf gets hurt.”

DeChambeau has acknowledged that he was disappointed by the Olympics rejection because he had hoped to represent his nation in the important competition. He declared on ESPN, “I would love to represent the United States.”

“It was difficult for me to skip the last round due to Covid, but it was an unfortunate incident.” I hope that eventually this game of golf will be resolved and revived so that I can continue to play.

“I’m having a great time playing golf. [So] yes, I am annoyed and let down. Yes, that is certainly true. However, I respect the decisions I made and the consequences that followed. I hope we figure that out as soon as possible so that we can move past it all and demonstrate how amazing golf is all over the world in this wonderful game.

2024 U.S. Open runner-up DeChambeau But Rory McIlroy, coming off of his disappointment at Pinehurst No. 2, will be traveling to Paris. McIlroy’s poor putting performance over the weekend cost him a chance to snap his ten-year major drought. Shane Lowry will represent Ireland alongside McIlroy.
