Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka rage at world ranking points rejection
Rivals Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau may not always agree on the golf course, but they concur that the Official World Golf Ranking must decide whether to give LIV Golf members ranking points.
Prior to this weekend's event in Bangkok, the Saudi Back Series formed a "strategic collaboration" on Wednesday with the lesser-known MENA Tour in order to earn ranking points.
The OWGR responded by issuing a statement on Thursday indicating that the request for ranking points in Bangkok and Jeddah later this month had been denied and was being looked into.
DeChambeau, a former US Open champion, tied for ninth place at the most recent LIV Golf competition in Chicago last month.
He didn't gain any ranking points for his performance, but he did get smacked in the eye by a course marking rope.
The American, who finished fourth in the world rankings the previous year but has since slipped to 48th after joining the LIV Golf series, may not make it into the big competitions of next year.
