Ryson DeChambeau had a lot to say when he arrived in Wisconsin. That is correct, given that he has recused himself from general media duties since the first week of August. Deschambault’s comments at the time about his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine sparked a seemingly endless controversy.
After that particular fracas, he retreated. Now the promise of the Ryder Cup has dragged him back to the podium. “It’s a team event and I’m focused on helping the US team win, that’s really why I’m here,” the Californian said of his recent silence.
Such was the scale of the gallery abuse directed at Deschambault that the PGA Tour took the unprecedented step earlier this month of specifically warning spectators not to provoke the 28-year-old. As proved by DeChambeau’s run-off with Brooks Koepka, golf fans have received manna from heaven since their return to the tournament.
“At the end of the day, we’re all human, and I think obviously any human has a degree of control,” Deschambault said. “You can have a lot of armor, you can protect yourself and the people around you and so on.
“Of course, sometimes I feel uncomfortable, but sometimes I cheer for you. I think this week is going to be an amazing example of how it’s going to be fun to get the audience behind us and motivate them and show them what I hope to do and what we can do as a team, more important.
“I won’t talk to me anymore. It’s about teamwork. I have a brass box. I had a lot of heat. But I have no problem with that. I understand that I am where I am and moving in that direction.”
Digging deeper into the topic suggests that the World No. 7 May have accepted that people will love to hate him. “If I had a hole-in-one on every hole here, someone would have said something,” he said.
“I’m not worried. I still love and respect them. I understand that they have their opinions and so on, and I respect those opinions, and I understand their point of view. But for me, it’s not about me. It’s about the team going out and winning the Ryder Cup.”
Deschambault claimed that he and Koepka had reached a truce. At least in terms of public relations, this is sensible; If team USA fails to regain the Ryder Cup, their controversy will serve as a simple reference point. “We had some great conversations over dinner during the tour championship week, and then again this week,” Deschambault said. “A lot of what’s on social media is definitely driven by a lot of external factors, not necessarily the two of us.
“I sat down to dinner with him last night and everything was fine. I think there could be some interesting things going forward here, but I won’t talk too much about it.” Maybe the balcony duet?
Deschambault raised cynical eyebrows when he pointed out that he had blisters on his hands as a result of his preparation for a long-distance driving race. “I have given this campaign my full attention,” he said.
Exactly how DeChambeau, the quintessential individual athlete, will cope with the return of such circumstances is a key theme of the biennale. Bryson ball, which courses are usually knocked down, is especially incompatible with groups of four.
He has certainly improved as a player since 2018, but in his Ryder Cup debut, he played in two pin-up losses, 5 and 4, before Alex Noren caused the singles defeat. DeChambeau defends his four-ball and foursome abilities.
“I feel like I’m a player who can adapt to anything when necessary,” he said. “I think we have some guys on our team that really fit my game, as you might understand. However, if you want, certain players will fit perfectly into the puzzle. I can easily say that I have no problem playing either format. I think the best shots are good for my style of play, and alternating shots with the right people can be deadly.”
So, he was asked, imagine the scenario: he was part of a winning American team and had adjusted to the Ryder Cup the second time he was asked. Will he be praised or even accepted? Deschambault kept the theme going. It has nothing to do with him.
“Listen, I don’t want to change anyone’s opinion,” insisted the 2020 US Open champion. “All I have to do is show what I can do for the game of golf. Whether people like it or not, that’s their interpretation of it.
“For me, I’m going to continue to give people the best entertainment I can, and some people may not like it, some people like it. I’m working on TikTok and Instagram and YouTube now, just trying to do something different because I want to show people who I really am.
“I think it’s cool when they get a little behind the scenes and see what I do in my daily life. It kind of opens it up: “Wow, it’s not just what people think of me on the golf course, it’s actually a person.” This is not about changing anyone’s mind. I think it’s about getting the crowd behind us and getting them, I suppose you could say, into us winning the cup.”
