Bryson DeChambeau, associated with LIV Golf, addressed the recent unification between the PGA Tour, the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), and the DP World Tour that was publicized last Tuesday. During his conversation, he offered a thought-provoking comment concerning the contentious PIF.
LIV Golf, since its establishment, has been the subject of dispute not only due to its aim to compete with the world's most renowned professional golf tour. The financial backing it receives from the PIF has sparked a vigorous discussion regarding the Fund's alleged support for terrorism both before and after the catastrophic 9/11 attacks on US soil.
DeChambeau faced a query this week in the aftermath of the merger, where he was asked to share his thoughts for those families whose lives were shattered by the 9/11 attacks and the loss of their dear ones.
"I think we’ll never be able to repay the families back for what exactly happened just over 20 years ago and what happened is definitely horrible," he said to CNN. "I think as time has gone on, 20 years has passed, we’re in a place now where it’s time to start trying to work together to make things better together as a whole.
"I don’t know exactly what they’re feeling. I can’t ever know what they feel, but I have a huge amount of respect for their position and what they believe. Nor do I ever what anything like that to ever occur again.
"I think as we move forward from that, we have to look toward the pathway to peace and forgiveness, especially if we’re trying to mend the world and make it a better place. I think this is what they’re trying to accomplish, LIV is trying to accomplish, PIF is trying to accomplish. We’re all trying to accomplish is a better world for everybody with entertainment for everybody around the world."

Terry Strada, the Chairperson of 9/11 Families United, earlier this week criticized PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan for exploiting their narratives to discredit LIV Golf because of its connections to the PIF. This occurred when the competing league posed itself as a potential challenger to the Tour.
DeChambeau is said to have received a $150 million signing bonus to make the transition from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf. He was part of the contingent that reaped financial benefits, while others, including Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, opted to stay loyal to the Tour despite being allegedly offered significant nine-figure sums as well.
This merger agitated those players who chose loyalty over monetary gains.
