Bryson’s press conference to promote Saudi International that was scheduled for today has also been canceled. Meanwhile, DeChambeau recently competed at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and finished T25 out of 38 players. Even though the result wasn’t the best, this was his first official PGA Tour event since Tour Championship. Hence, there might have been some rust while playing competitive golf.

Meanwhile, Bryson was trying to smash the ball off the tee last week. He even clocked 200 mph ball speed with ease, and in this process, he might have even caused some injury to his wrist. However, there is no official confirmation of this yet. But hopefully, we will get it soon.
