Former LPGA golfer Paige Spiranac, who now runs a successful podcast by the name “Playing A Round with Paige Renee”, recently released a new episode. The episode had a segment where the social media sensation was talking about how she doesn’t intend to tune in to the ongoing LIV Golf series. In a previous episode, the host of the show was also heard calling the Saudi-backed series a “complete sh*tshow”. Paige Spiranac particularly talked about eight-time PGA Tour winner Bryson DeChambeau.

She also mentioned former amateur no. 1 Rickie Fowler and how his and DeChambeau’s performances have been deteriorating over the recent games. Spiranac also spoke about the sponsorships that DeChambeau recently lost. She even gave a few predictions about Rickie Fowler’s career and risks in the near future.

Financial Setbacks for Bryson DeChambeau and Rickie Fowler

Rocket Mortgage, a former sponsor of DeChambeau, recently dropped his sponsorship as a result of him joining the LIV Golf Tour. They released a statement saying “Effective immediately, Rocket Mortgage has ended its sponsorship agreement with Bryson. We wish him well in his future success.”

Spiranac and all of us have seen the financial setbacks that DeChambeau has gone through after losing sponsors. These sponsors are major contributors to the total income of these golfers. Taking DeChambeau as a reference, Spiranac said it would be surprising if Fowler decides to join the LIV Golf Series after what happened with DeChambeau.

Spiranac said, “We haven’t been you know, like talking about him. I haven’t missed him… And he works with Rocket Mortgage and we saw that Bryson also was working with Rocket Mortgage and they dropped immediately, so Ricky would lose the Rocket Mortgage deal, I’m sure, and probably a couple of others.”

Spiranac feels that the golfer might lose a lot of sponsors which are currently helping him make a decent income. Fowler’s sponsors and endorsement partners have helped him in building his brand. So it would be a surprise if Rickie Fowler decided to extend his support to the Saudi-backed tour.
