Players who have signed big-money deals to join LIV Golf have been fairly tight-lipped about the specifics in their contracts. Bryson DeChambeau sounded like he was going to be, too, when asked about it during a recent appearance on the “Country Club Adjacent” podcast.
“I’m not gonna say the details,” DeChambeau said.
But with a slight pause, the eight-time PGA Tour winner continued. “I mean for what’s reported it’s somewhat close. It’s a four-and-a-half-year deal, I can definitely tell you that, and a lot of it was upfront, which is great.”
But how much money are we talking about? That’s where DeChambeau did stick to his guns about not offering too many details. Well, sort of.
When the hosts noted that 28-year-old was carrying a “$125 million smile”, DeChambeau replied “that’s a little low”.
“What’s cool about it,” DeChambeau continued, “is I’ve already put it in places that make sense, whether it’s my foundation or real estate, being able to build a multi-sport complex or taking care of my family, taking care of what we’ve got going on with our content creation with Regecy, numerous other things, too.”
DeChambeau played in his first LIV event last weekend at Pumpkin Ridge, finishing 10th. That earned him another $US560,000.
