Sad news for Bryson DeChambeau, as he tested positive coronavirus and is set to miss the Tokyo Olympics. The golfer will be replaced by Patrick Reed. Jon Rahm, the No.1 golfer from Spain will also be missing out on the Olympic games after contracting the virus.
Both of them were supposed to be making their Olympic debut when the men’s event started at Kasumigaseki Country Club. It was forecasted that both of the golfers would definitely be amongst the frontline contenders for a podium finish.
Bryson DeChambeau Will Be Missing Out on The Olympics
Jon Rahm, more than Bryson DeChambeau, would definitely be lamenting missing out after he had edged out South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen to secure the US Open which took place at Torrey Pines in California.
After the event, he had to fly over to the United Kingdom for The Open– where he ended up being third. After that, he had to pass three PCR tests, out of which two were negative but one of them was positive. DeChambeau was also looking towards changing around a season filled entirely with drama that included months of sparring with Brooks Koepka.
Although the California, Bryson DeChambeau, didn’t enter the top 25 in any of the majors throughout the world, he still has a victory. The Arnold Palmer Invitational that took place in March has his name on it. Following his medical news, DeChambeau stated that he was quite disappointed to not be able to represent his country in the Olympics.
Nonetheless, he would be wishing his team the best of luck while taking the time to get back to his previous health. Reed was supposed to be undergoing testing on Sunday and Monday so that he could clear himself to participate in the Olympics.
Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau’s sparring mate, hasn’t sounded all that enthused about playing in the Olympics. His reasoning was that the four majors of the sport, along with a smattering of other trophies give every player a lot to strive for.
