This week’s stop in Nashville for LIV Golf features Bryson DeChambeau. The brand new champion of the US Open steals all the attention for the accolade that his victory in Pinehurst meant for the circuit last Sunday, although the return of Jon Rahm was also in the news, after his withdrawal from the third major of the season with problems caused by an injury between the toes of his left foot.

“It was the best decision,” he clarified in front of journalists. “And we have put in place the means to prevent it from happening again. I can walk well now, although I haven’t done it much. “I’m looking forward to playing again.”

Rahm attended the Crushers leader’s victory as a viewer and said he enjoyed the spectacle“especially Bryson’s bunker shot”, which he elevated to one of the best approaches in history like Tom Watson’s at Pebble Beach (US Open 1982), Phil’s at Baltusrol (PGA 2005) and some of Tiger at Augusta.

The Barrika golfer took the opportunity to congratulate David Puig, trained at Arizona State University like him, for his Olympic qualification and threw a stick at the NBC broadcast. “One of the things that burned me the most, and I think it was Smylie (Kaufman) who said it, was that he severely downplayed how difficult Rory’s putt was on 18. When he said it was a putt from left to center, if you hit that putt like that and miss the hole, you’re off the green because of the steep slope there was. Rory could be seen aiming at least one hole left from three feet. “They seriously downplayed how difficult that putt was.”
