Controversial golfer Bryson DeChambeau has delivered a bizarre moment at a LIV Golf event after becoming entangled in a rope, before doubling over in an unusual incident caught on camera.
In the Chicago event, Cameron Smith claimed his first LIV victory in only his second start on the lucrative Saudi Arabia-backed circuit.

The Aussie finished three-shots in front of Dustin Johnson and Peter Uihlein.
However, one moment that caught the attention of fans was DeChambeau's bizarre moment with a rope.
DeChambeau was walking amongst a crowd when he lifted up a boundary rope to go underneath it.
Unfortunately for the former US Open winner, he lost his grip and the rope appeared to clothesline him.
DeChambeau quickly reacted and attempted to lay blame on the supporter when he yelled: "What the f**k guys".
The American doubled over for a moment as he clutched his face.
He then furiously snatched the towel out of his caddie's hand.
Already a divisive golfer for a number of outbursts in the past, DeChambeau's reaction to the incident prompted little sympathy on social media.

However, the American - who signed on with LIV Golf for a reported $180 million - was able to recover and finished the hole.
He finished tied 10th in the Chicago-based event.
Cameron Smith wins his first LIV Golf event
Smith, one of 12 major champions in the 48-player field at Rich Harvest Farms, shot a three-under-par 69 in the final round of the 54-hole event on Sunday to reach 13 under and secure the $US4 million ($A6m) first prize.
"I think I had to prove to probably myself and some other people that I am still a great player, you know I am still out here to win golf tournaments," Smith said.
"Proud of how I hung in there today. Didn't really have my best stuff the first eight or nine holes but stuck it tough and made a few good putts coming in. It was nice."
The stage was set for a final-round duel between two of the world's best golfers as overnight leader Smith began the day two shots clear of playing partner Johnson (70), who fell three shots back after a bogey at the first hole.
Both players birdied the second hole but Smith bogeyed the fourth and sixth as Johnson got to within a stroke before the duo carded birdies at the par-five seventh.
Smith opened up a three-shot lead with a birdie at the par-four eighth, where Johnson carded the first of two consecutive bogeys to reach the turn four back and his hopes of becoming the first multiple winner on the LIV Golf series all but dashed.
