After winning the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in dramatic fashion, Bryson DeChambeau has now finished top six in all three majors of 2024. And yet, the LIV Golf League star will not join Masters champ Scottie Scheffler and PGA Championship winner Xander Schauffele in representing Team USA at the Paris Olympics this summer.

Here's how it all works:

Why Bryson DeChambeau won't be at Paris Olympics

The U.S. Open marked the final round of qualifying for the summer games.

The four top-ranked Americans, per the Official World Golf Ranking, will head to Paris: Scottie Scheffler (no. 1), Xander Schauffele (no. 3), 2021 U.S. Open champion Wyndham Clark (no. 5), and two-time major winner Collin Morikawa (no. 7). Patrick Cantlay, who finished third at the U.S. Open, sits at no. 8.

Despite not being recognized by the OWGR for his results on LIV — his Crushers GC team leads the standings, though he doesn't have an individual win — DeChambeau is ranked 10th, due to his performance in the majors (T6 at the Masters, runner-up at the PGA).

For the United States, the Olympic qualifying more or less mimics the world rankings. Per the PGA Tour:

“The International Golf Federation (IGF) uses the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR) to create the Olympic Golf Rankings (OGR) as a method of determining eligibility. The top 15 world-ranked players will be eligible for the Olympics, with a limit of four players from a given country. Following that, players will be eligible based on the world rankings, with a maximum of up to two eligible players from each country that does not already have two or more players among the top 15. This happens until the number of 59 athletes is reached, including continental places.”

It's hard to argue with the inclusion of Scheffler, Schauffele, and Morikawa. Scheffler has won five PGA Tour events in 2024. Schauffele — the gold medalist at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — has been the second-best player on the PGA Tour all season, climaxing with his triumph at Valhalla.

Morikawa was in the final Sunday pairing of the Masters and PGA Championship. He's been the third-best American golfer in 2024, per DataGolf. DeChambeau ranks fourth.

Clark's inclusion will raise eyebrows, at least about the system. Since carding back-t0-back runner-ups to Scheffler in March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players Chapmpionship, Clark — who briefly dealt with a back injury — has one top-10 and hasn't factored into the last two majors. The 2023 U.S. Open winner ranks 38th in DataGolf's rankings.

Meanwhile, Canada locked in its national team at the U.S. Open, with Corey Conners seizing the final spot (joining Nick Taylor) with a T9 at Pinehurst No. 2.

Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry will represent Ireland. Spain will be repped by LIV Golf members Jon Rahm and David Puig. Hideki Matsuyama (Japan), Tommy Fleetwood (Great Britain), Tom Kim (South Kore), Ludvig Aberg (Sweden), Viktor Hovland (Norway) and Matthieu Pavon (France) are among the other notables in the 60-person field.

The Olympic Golf Competition consists of 72 holes of individual stroke play, with no cut. Four rounds will be scheduled over four days. Lowest overall score wins.

The Men's Golf competition at the 2024 Paris Olympics will take place from Aug. 1-4 at Le Golf National. The women will begin on Aug. 7. The 60-person women's field will be finalized on June 24.

Le Golf National is located in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, outside of Paris, near Versailles.
