Grayson Murray calls out Bryson DeChambeau for 28-hole withdrawal at Riviera


Bryson DeChambeau was playing on a sponsor's exemption this week in the 2017 Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club, just outside of Los Angeles. DeChambeau withdrew from the tournament on Friday after 28 holes.

Grayson Murray, who, like DeChambeau, earned his PGA Tour card from the Tour Finals, was not happy to see that.

Murray is fully exempt for the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as the leading money earner in the 2016 Tour Finals, so he is not subject to the points-based reshuffles of priority. However, that doesn't mean he can't be miffed at DeChambeau pulling out of the event.

DeChambeau has struggled in his last four PGA Tour events, missing the cut in the prior three before withdrawing from the Genesis Open.

In DeChambeau's defense, a host of players didn't come back to complete Round 2 of the 2017 Genesis Open, including defending champion Bubba Watson and Shane Lowry.

For his part, Murray will miss the cut at Riviera Country Club, shooting 72-77 to miss the cut at even-par 142.
