On Memorial Day, not many of the multi-millionaire tour golfers took the time to honor America’s war dead.

But a few did pay tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

One of those was reigning U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau.

The big bomber wrote:

“Home of the free, because of the brave. Today, and everyday, we take some time to honor the outstanding bravery and sacrifice many undergo defending our country. May we never forget all that has, and is, being done to ensure our amazing freedom.”

LPGA Tour star Lexi Thompson also offered her appreciation, and remembered “all of our fallen soldiers.”

She wrote: “Can’t thank our military enough for all they do to serve and protect us and our freedom. Honored to be a part of the SEAL Legacy Foundation and give back to our #NavySeals.

“Today, we remember all of our fallen soldiers. #MemorialDay”

Brittany Lincicome joined Lexi and wrote: “Thank you to all the brave men and women who sacrifice so we can be free.”

We haven’t heard from Hunter Mahan in a while, but he was classy enough to post his thoughts.

A couple of Golf Channel names also offered tributes:

Brandel Chamblee wrote: “Happy Memorial Day.

“Hardly a day goes by that I don’t think about how lucky I am to have been born in this country; to benefit from the profound ideas that gave it its philosophy of government and the men and women who fought and died to secure and protect those ideas.”

While Arron Oberholser posted, “To the soldiers who gave everything and to their families. Always remembered. #MemorialDay2021”

Sadly, that was it.

Thank you to Bryson, Lexi, Brittany, Hunter, Brandel, and Arron.
