Look, I get why the USOC doesn’t want Bryson representing the flag given the LIV bullshit, but boy, it’s hard to leave him off the Olympic team if you’re trying to put the best golfers out there. Dude is playing at a very high level on the biggest stages.
My take: No one who took money from the Saudi govt, which murders American citizens and journalists, should represent the US.

USOC doesn't want Bryson at the Olympics? Big dumb.

Not a big golf guy, but, of all people, shouldn't the attendants be aware enough to get out of the way of a drive off the tee. Certainly looked to have helped Dechambeau there.

Edit: what's the ruling if it hadn't hit the attendant and was up against the black wall?

Kidding aside, wouldn't he have qualified for relief from the temporary stand if it had gone behind or up against it?

That's what I was wondering in my edit. Wouldn't have to deal with the tree on the back stroke I guess, but seems like the angle to the green would be tough.
