It was a difficult day to be a competitor on the golf circuit on Sunday.
Bryson DeChambeau followed suit with a post from his own Twitter account just hours after Dustin Johnson made a statement through the PGA Tour indicating that he is totally committed to the PGA Tour.
“While there has been a lot of conjecture about my support for another tour, I want to be clear that I will continue to play on the PGA Tour as long as the greatest players in the world do. For the time being, I’m concentrating on getting well so that I can compete again soon. I’m grateful for everyone’s help.”

Johnson, DeChambeau, and Phil Mickelson are among the top players said to be interested in joining a proposed Saudi Arabia-backed Super Golf League, which would give out huge sums of guaranteed money in order to attract some of the game’s biggest names and compete directly with the PGA Tour.
Johnson’s statement was identical to DeChambeau’s: “There has been a great deal of talk about an alternate tour over the past several months; much of it appears to have included me and my future in professional golf,” Johnson stated. “I believe it is past time to put such rumors to rest. I am completely dedicated to the PGA Tour. I am grateful for the opportunity to perform on the biggest tour in the world, as well as everything it has given my family.”
