2022–23 Fantasy Outlook
The 2020 U.S. Open champion will qualify for all four majors. DeChambeau was injured for much of last season and that could be a career-long concern because of his violent swing. Read Past Outlooks
Will join LIV for July event
June 8, 2022
DeChambeau's agent confirmed Wednesday that he's agreed to play in the next LIV Golf Series event at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club scheduled for June 30, Brian Wacker of Golf Digest reports.
ANALYSIS
Wacker adds that DeChambeau offered no comment on whether he'd keep or resign his PGA Tour membership after committing to the rival league, so it remains unclear how his decision will impact fantasy leagues. DeChambeau made his return to the Tour at The Memorial Tournament last weekend after missing an extended period due to wrist surgery, but he was rusty and ultimately missed the cut.

DeChambeau had quite the year, both on the course and back on the course. It seemed the off course drama followed him onto the course which made things a little more difficult to close the season. All the drama aside however, he had quite a season. DeChambeau posted incredible numbers in 2018 and decided that wasn't quite good enough so he fully transformed his body. The result was massive power followed by massive success. The 2020-21 season was his first full season as a beast and it looks like this new DeChambeau is here to stay. If he can move past the Brooks Koepka drama he could be the best golfer on the planet sometime soon. With that said, his number is too high for salary cap purposes. In draft leagues he's in the mix for the first overall pick.
No one dominated the headlines quite as much as DeChambeau this past season and that was due to both his physique and his game. DeChambeau made waves out of the break when he debuted his new bulked-up frame, but it wasn't just for show as his game was on-fire as well. DeChambeau posted top-10s in each of his first four starts after the break, culminating with a win at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. His production fell off a but after that, but you can expect that with an off-season to further figure out his swing mechanics, he'll be as good as ever this upcoming season.
DeChambeau's 2017-2018 season was absolutely insane. It would have been nearly impossible to replicate what he did during that season last year, but even with that said, more was expected. DeChambeau was north of $8 million just two years ago and while that seemed a little outrageous, something in the neighborhood of $5 million this past season was certainly within reason, but obviously that didn't happen. DeChambeau never found his stride this past season and his slow-play issues near the end likely wore on him. If he can get that behind him, (hopefully by speeding-up his play), then he should be back in the top-10 next season.
DeChambeau's ascent to the top of the PGA Tour hasn't taken long. DeChambeau first hit the scene in 2016 and he quickly made his mark. In his first full season on the PGA Tour, he picked up a runner-up at the Puerto Rico Open and a win at the John Deere Classic. Things were certainly looking up for DeChambeau and there was an expectation that he would continue to improve in 2017-18. To say he improved though is a huge understatement. DeChambeau blew all expectations out of the water with three wins and more than $8 million. The next step, of course, is a major, but whether he wins one this season, it will be tough to top what he accomplished last season. As such, he's not an option in salary cap formats. In draft formats he's a first-round pick.
If not for Jon Rahm, DeChambeau may have been the most hyped young player on the PGA Tour this past season. That gives you an idea of how highly those in the golf world think of DeChambeau. Though he started slowly last season, he managed to find his game at the John Deere Classic where he picked up his first career PGA Tour win. Though he failed to record a top-10 the rest of the season, he didn't fall off the map like some guys do after their first big win. With that in mind, DeChambeau holds plenty of value entering this season.
Here's the thing about DeChambeau: the dude's legit, but this is going to be a tough road for him. Yes, he nearly won the RBC Heritage in his first week on Tour but then he struggled, big time, missing four straight cuts. He admitted that he overprepared and worked too hard, perhaps expected considering the angles (figuratively and literally) at which he looks at golf. The man whose irons are the same length firmly believes he has the power to change golf -- and he very well might. Kudos to him for winning the DAP Championship in a playoff, the first Web.com Tour Finals event, to clinch his PGA Tour card. But getting acclimated to the traveling grind and learning all the golf courses on tour won't be easy - it's not even for the best -- and it wouldn't surprise if it takes the better part of a season for DeChambeau to work his way into a groove. That might not be a bust in a golf fan's eyes but in the eyes of a fantasy player it might not be good enough.
