However, the list of committed players does not include the likes of Bryson DeChambeau. Bryson, in a media conference for promoting the Saudi International, gave his reasons for not featuring in the docuseries. He said, “There’s a lot of factors going on in that.

He added, “They’re getting a pretty dang good look inside my life [from YouTube]. And to have more people come in and go even further, which is almost impossible for what I’m giving out, is just too invasive for me.”

“There’s a lot of great people on there. If I was to go on there, yeah, it would be cool to see, but I feel like there’s a lot more interesting stories. You’ve got Harry Higgs. You’ve got numerous others,” he concluded.
