Bryson DeChambeau won last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational and he was quick to congratulate those who bet on him. Joe Brennan, Jr., a gambling industry analyst, tweeted out “this is crossing the line”.
Yeah, this is crossing a line https://t.co/BpAz64I0j1

“It’s been a quick turnaround,” said DeChambeau, who was on the TPC Sawgrass range by Monday afternoon and worked on his swing past sundown. “I’ve got to get focused for this and figure out the best strategy this week and how I can best navigate the golf course.”
While DeChambeau and fellow golfers can’t guarantee a win and likely won’t impact other futures bets due to the dozens competing, he can certainly influence matchup betting by purposely losing.
