Golf Superstar DeChambeau Defends Saudi Arabia Over Criticism From 9/11 Families

  • Professional golfer Bryson DeChambeau defended Saudi Arabia during an interview this week after it was announced that the PGA Tour and the Saudi-backed LIV Golf would merge and form a new golf league.
  • 9/11 Families United released a statement following the announcement slamming the PGA Tour for partnering with the Saudi-backed entity, noting that Saudi operatives played a role in facilitating the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
