Last week was nothing short of glorious for Bryson DeChambeau. On Sunday, DeChambeau captured the 2024 USOpen crown at the ever-difficult Pinehurst No. 2. He scored to beat the likes of Rory McIlroy (2), Tony Finau (T3), and Patrick Cantlay (T3).

His good form from the US Open is now continuing at LIV Golf Nashville this week. In the event which is being held in Tenessee, DeChambeau shot 4-under 67 in Round 1.

After carding this score, the 30-year-old golfer shared his thoughts with the media about his performance at The Grove. DeChambeau said he was a zombie and also added he was grateful to be in Nashville and have support.

Bryson DeChambeau said:

"I'm a zombie right now. I'm a dead man walking. It's quite an honor to be out here and have so much support. It's fantastic."

LIV Golf Nashville is the first time the Saudi-backed tour has come to the city. After the first round, DeChambeau and his team Crushers GC are in second place on the leaderboard. If they are able to keep up their performance and do better to finish first, they will walk home with a prize money of $3 million.

The 2024 US Open has given Bryson DeChambeau the momentum he needs ahead of LIV Golf Nashville. Prior to winning the Major at Pinehurst, DeCheambeau hadn't won a single event in 2024. His best performance in LIV Golf came when the tour went to Jeddah and he finished in fourth place.

The Majors, on the other hand, have yielded good outings. Even though DeChambeau couldn't win, he finished T6 and second at the Masters and PGA Championship, respectively.
