Bryson DeChambeau will not represent the United States this summer despite his recent triumph at the 124th U.S. Open at Pinehurst

Bryson DeChambeau's elation at clinching his second major championship title may have been short-lived as his hopes of representing Team USA at the Paris Olympics were officially quashed.

Despite his victory at Pinehurst over the weekend, his fellow Americans Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark, and Collin Morikawa have been selected to compete at Le Golf National from August 1 to August 4. With only 60 players making the cut for the Olympics this summer, each country can only field a maximum of four stars in the top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).

However, the newly-minted US Open champion is still ranked below that foursome, as well as his compatriot Patrick Cantlay in terms of the United States' top-ranked players. DeChambeau's decision to join the LIV Golf circuit in 2022 has affected his ranking.

After defeating Rory McIlroy in a thrilling US Open finale, his heroic performance has propelled him to the No. 10 spot in the world golf rankings. Prior to his triumph in North Carolina, he was placed 38th in the OWGR standings - with his efforts in Saudi Arabia not earning him any ranking points.

US Golf has confirmed their final four who will represent the country in Paris this summer. The announcement was made on Twitter, with the post reading: "The FOUR for #ParisOlympics. Scheffler, Schauffele, Clark, Morikawa," alongside a photograph of the quartet.

Prior to this, American golfing star DeChambeau had expressed his desire to compete for the US this summer. Speaking on the Pat McAfee Show, he said: "I would love to represent the United States. It was tough for me last time around because of Covid, it was just one of those things that happened."

"Hopefully one day the game of golf will get figured out and come back together and I'll be able to play. I'm playing great golf, I'm excited but ultimately I'm frustrated and disappointed, sure you can absolutely say that. I made the choices I have made and there's consequences to that, I respect it. But hopefully sooner rather than later we figure that out."

As for the four men who have been selected to represent the United States this summer, Schauffele will be looking to replicate his success from Tokyo 2020, where he earned gold. Meanwhile, Morikawa is preparing to appear at the Games for a second time in his career.

Scheffler and Clark are set to make their Olympic debut as they head to France this summer. When golf made its return to the Olympics in 2016, it was Britain's Justin Rose who clinched gold, propelling on the road to eventually clinching the No. 1 ranking in the world.
