American ace eyes European Tour spot
Bryson DeChambeau would welcome the chance to become a member of the European Tour so he can become a 'global golfer'.
The 25-year-old has made winning an international event his priority for the year ahead and he may well do the job early after an opening round of 66, one shot off the lead, at the Dubai Desert Classic.
DeChambeau already looks totally at home on the PGA Tour, where he has five wins to his name, but he is determined to become an accomplished player outside his homeland, and if that means becoming a member of the European Tour then he'd jump at the chance.
"Yeah, absolutely, I'd do a membership, that's obvious," said DeChambeau.
"There are plenty of players that have won worldwide, and I want to be one of them. So that's a yes.
"I'm honestly just excited to try and capture an international victory, and that's really what I want to do this week. I've set my sights on an international win and then also majors, for sure."
