Last year’s feud between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau seems quaint in comparison to the current controversy surrounding the game with many PGA golfers accepting obscene sums of money to play on the Saudi-backed LIV Tour and being banned from playing in future PGA Tour events as a result. Past major tournament winners are eligible to play at the US Open this week, however, which could make for some awkward pairings and post-match press conferences. Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia and Patrick Reed are among the LIV defectors teeing it up this week.
One name you won’t see on the leaderboard this week is Tiger Woods, who is resting up for a trip to St. Andrews for the British Open next month.
Here’s what you need to know to watch the golf this week.
