Earlier in August 2021, Bryson DeChambeau, who underwent noticeable weight loss, revealed his symptoms, vaccination status, and how he's doing heading into the FedEx St. Jude Invitational in public for the very first time since a COVID-19 positive test kept him out of the Olympics.
Following a nine-hole practice session in Memphis, DeChambeau talked with a small group of media that comprised Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner as well as ESPN's Bob Harig.
He reported his notable symptoms in the days following his coronavirus diagnosis, which included exhaustion and "coughing spurts." Following the positive test, he restricted his practice and stayed at home.
He returned to the course earlier in the month, but he's not feeling 100%. DeChambeau stated that he underwent 10 pounds of weight loss and that his pace has slowed following days of rest. Moreover, DeChambeau stated that he hasn't received the vaccine and explained why.
As per ESPN, he said:
The vaccine doesn’t necessarily prevent it from happening. I’m young enough, I’d rather give it to people who need it. I don’t need it. I’m a healthy, young individual that will continue to work on my health.
DeChambeau also mentioned that his diabetic father received the vaccine much earlier. Likewise, his mother also got it early on.
I don’t think taking the vaccine away from someone who needs it is a good thing.
Vaccine scarcities delayed the rollout initially in 2021, but the CDC has recorded no shortages recently as more American citizens have been vaccinated while others, including as DeChambeau, have expressed reservations.
DeChambeau also stated that he would be willing to get the vaccination at some point in the near future.
As time goes on, if it’s mainstream – like, really, really mainstream – and everything is vetted out, yeah. I don’t have an issue [getting vaccinated].
His remarks drew special attention considering the current situation of COVID-19 in the United States; the Delta variant has dominated the nation, resulting in a substantial surge in positive tests, especially among unvaccinated people.
The PGA Tour claimed more than 70% of its players and caddies have received the vaccine, leading the Tour to halt weekly on-site testing. However, the Tour has reinstated its indoor masking regulation for all participants.
Bryson DeChambeau was Left Angered by Fan After Losing BMW Championship
Bryson DeChambeau - who previously underwent weight gain - was defeated in a very emotional and psychologically exhausting six-hole playoff in which he had many opportunities to win, and he simply wanted to get out of the golf course.
As per ESPN's Kevin Van Valkenburg, an exuberant fan went a little too far as he headed up the hill to the clubhouse, with Patrick Cantlay relishing in the euphoria of triumph back down on the 18th green.
This spectator planned to wait for DeChambeau to walk by before launching into the now-tired and over-used “Great job, Brooksie” jab.
It was quite frankly the final straw for DeChambeau. The report claimed he spun around and began walking towards the perpetrator.
You know what? Get the f— out!
Van Valkenburg then wrote that DeChambeau had rage in his eyes.
Despite TV broadcasters attempting to diminish the level of chirping DeChambeau had to contend with over the weekend, Van Valkenburg says that he heard it "dozens of times." He further claims that when DeChambeau hit a drive into a creek, fans loudly celebrated.
When questioned about the encounter by ESPN, the PGA Tour refused to respond.
