407 thought on “PGA-Golfer reagieren auf unbefristete Sperren für LIV-Golf-Teilnehmer | Golf-Zentrale | Golfkanal”

  1. It’s tough run­ning a mono­po­ly. Kee­ping con­trol of all the­se rogue gol­fers is tough. I think any enter­tai­ning golf is good for the game no mat­ter what tour or seri­es it is.

  2. que Pamel​a​ri​oss​.Uno encan­tan tus vide­os. Ben­di­cio­nes her­mo­sa Celi­na que Dios te cui­de don­de quie­ra los mor­ta­lest abi­an apre­cia­do tan her­mo­sa mujer

  3. Jt and Rory mad they did­n’t get big offers. Rory is gon­na be ban­ned from doing press now becau­se he say he’s gon­na watch liv. Rory and Jt to liv confirmed.!!

    1. @greg riz­zo I think it’s fair to assu­me that if LIV grew and was a credi­ble tour, then the­re would have to be some inclu­si­on in OWGR. If that did­n’t hap­pen, then it would be the OWGR that lacks credibility. 

      It seems there’s a lot of water to go under the bridge, but as you poin­ted out, it’s not an immedia­te issue. The­re are many play­ers on the LIV tour who auto­ma­ti­cal­ly qua­li­fy due to pre­vious vic­to­ries and/or cur­rent rank. 

      Time will tell!

    2. @Ross OWGR requi­res 72 holes to be play­ed for points to be given, so they would have to chan­ge that also, or LIV switch to 72 holes. I don’t see it ever being more than a glo­ri­fied money grab exhibition.

    3. @greg riz­zo You’­re pro­bab­ly right! Watch this space I guess… LIV only put their sub­mis­si­on in last week regar­ding OWGR points so will have to wait and see what happens.

      I’m not going to jump to any con­clu­si­ons, but knowing how much money has been pou­red into this, I would be sur­pri­sed if the who­le thing implo­ded immediately.

  4. But David Duval is per­fect­ly ok car­ry­ing the PGA’s water becau­se he choo­ses to over­look the fact that the PGA is in bed with Com­mu­nist Chi­na who­se human rights record is hor­ri­fic. Ever heard of the Uyghurs? Guess he didn’t teach his kids about that. The selec­ti­ve outra­ge is sicke­n­ing. Duval loo­ks like an unin­for­med meat head….which he obvious­ly is🙄

  5. The PGA Tour and the LIV Golf Tour both take their money from the Roth­schilds, the Vati­can ban­kers for the Anti­Christ Papa­cy, so the moral argu­ment does­n’t work. The pro­of should be in the pud­ding, so why is the PGA Tour so con­ten­tious, becau­se the pud­ding may be bet­ter in ways.

    1. PGA tour made 1.1 bil­li­on last year , the top play­ers work for them. Look at NBA, ima­gi­ne a NBA play­er gets payed only by win­ning while the NBA makes dol­lars out of their media rights.

    1. Yea… may­be some more play­ers on their down­hill side of their care­er wan­ting to play 6–8 tour­na­ments a year…👍😅

  6. When the PGA tour reco­gni­zes that you­tubers like Not A Scratch Gol­fer, Rick Schiels, Peter Finch, etc. are tre­men­dous for the growth of the sport (becau­se they real­ly are) I don’t think we can trust the PGA real­ly cares about gro­wing the sport. This is going to be a cra­zy opi­ni­on to some but they remind me of the pro­mo­ters and sanc­tio­n­ing body of Super­cross and Motocross…heavy hit­ters that aren’t doing much to actual­ly grow the sport but to rather get more money.

    This all being said, I don’t belie­ve the Saudi’s give a crap about the sport either…they’re opportunists.…so it’s a litt­le disin­ge­nuous to say Liv is “good for the sport.”.…it will remain to be seen.

    1. Don’t dis­agree with your views on what’s best for the sport in princip­le, but I’m not sure about their rele­van­ce in this spe­ci­fic situa­ti­on, which real­ly boils down to a con­trac­tu­al dis­pu­te (legal­ly, a poten­ti­al tort – I’m sure that’s coming).
      So I’m also not sure what the role, good or other­wi­se, of club pro You­Tuber coa­ches like Rick Shiels have to do with any of this in tho­se terms. The PGA has its weak­nes­ses for sure, but that’s not what this is real­ly about. This is Packer-like attemp­ted coup.
      I cer­tain­ly agree with your last points.

  7. If the aim of being a pro­fes­sio­nal gol­fer is to get paid, then the­se LIV blo­kes just won.

    How pathe­tic for “The Tour” to sus­pend them. They’­re sup­po­sed to be gro­wing the game, and as far as I can tell, LIV just grew the game and gave more oppor­tu­ni­ty to gol­fers than the PGA Tour have done in a while. 

    May­be work WITH them and not against them then ever­yo­ne can win!?

  8. I will sus­pend my sup­port of all PGA sponsors.….….LIV Golf deser­ves a chan­ce and the play­ers should not be pena­li­zed. This game goes both ways.

    1. PGA tour made 1.5 bil­li­on last year, the top play­ers worked for them. Look at how much money éli­te play­ers made in the NBA

  9. As much as I des­pi­se Nor­man, the­se gol­fers are inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors. They should play whe­re they wish…or not, for wha­te­ver reasons.

  10. PGA Tour… Plea­se­GoA­way Tour more likely… pay to get your “han­di­cap” so we can pay the top 15 gol­fers a descent paycheck while the rest of the pros aren’t get­ting what they should… and know body cares about the RBC

  11. The US government has kil­led count­less inno­cents and des­troy­ed com­mu­nities by star­ting pro­xy wars across the pla­net to line the pockets of poli­ti­ci­ans and com­pa­ny exe­cu­ti­ves. But somehow we have some sort of moral high­ground over Sau­di Ara­bia? This is laug­ha­ble. Let’s also point out all of the PGA mer­chan­di­se that’s manu­fac­tu­red in Chi­na. While we’­re at it, let’s talk about all of the impor­ted oil that we buy from Sau­di Ara­bia. A pro­fes­sio­nal golf league is moral­ly irre­proach­a­ble, so why do folks keep cal­ling LIV golf the “Sau­di backed” golf league. If the Sau­dis were fun­ding an orpha­na­ge or a can­cer rese­arch faci­li­ty, would ever­yo­ne be tacking “Sau­di backed” on the front of it? This is not­hing but defa­ma­to­ry pro­pa­gan­da, and Greg Nor­man, has strong grounds to sue the­se news out­lets for defamation.

  12. I don’t care if the­se losers ever play on PGA again. I know they are making a lot of money. Yet soon their world ran­king will drop and no more majors , no Ryder Cup, no pre­si­dents cup. See ya!

  13. The mora­li­ty issue they speak of is incredi­b­ly laug­ha­ble– espe­cial­ly from play­ers from US – look in the mir­ror man– you’­re government has kil­led mil­li­ons in the midd­le east–Droned and kil­led inno­cent fami­lies inclu­ding their child­ren on several occasions–destroyed nati­ons like Libya– YOU HAVE ZERO MORAL HIGH GROUND–ZERO you live your life in igno­rant pro­pa­gan­da bliss– I love Golf but the PGA is boring as fuck– as some com­men­ted You tubers do a bet­ter job for gro­wing the game–Bryson’s you­tube chan­nel is more inte­res­ting than the PGA– the guys say­ing they won’t go today are the same guys that will go tomorrow-it’s only a mat­ter of time– out­side of the majors, the play­ers and one or 2 other events the rest are not that exci­ting– unless Tigers in the mix— then they com­p­lain about the money aspect–sell outs to money–and? the PGA is try­ing to pro­tect their league for what exact­ly? to keep their mono­po­ly on golf…and make the money— Bring it on–I’ll be watching LIV- the PGA-Asia tour and wha­te­ver else inte­rests me…

  14. The PGA Tour does not own “the play­ers” they qua­li­fy and work their asses off to make the tour and play. i have much respect for what the PGA Tour has done for golf etc.. but did the Cana­di­an tour ban Mike Wier when he made the PGA Tour? Did the Euro­pean tour ban­ned Rory, Lee West­wood and many others for com­ing to Ame­ri­ca to play? Abso­lute­ly not becau­se they knew if and when Rory or others made an appearan­ce back in their coun­try or play­ed a tour­na­ment on the Euro­pean tour that event would see more spec­ta­tors and get more coverage than ever. If I was a tour play­er the respon­se and actions of the PGA would real­ly make me rethink my com­mit­ment and fur­ther­mo­re their com­mit­ment to the play­ers who repre­sent and made the PGA Tour what it is. LIV is good for golf, the PGA should be hap­py and may­be look at the posi­ti­ve expan­si­on of the game ins­tead of the dol­lars or hurt to their image

    1. @Madison Mathews I don’t think it’s easy to know any­mo­re sin­ce most of the top play­ers stats will be scrub­bed due to the ban. You should be able to see top play­ers accord­ing to the PGA web­site though. Just note due to PGA mono­po­ly the stats may not reflect every gol­fer in the world.

  15. JT must have got­ten a check from the PGA… don’t know how he’s beco­me the spo­kes per­son for the PGA. Loo­king for­ward to more guys lea­ving the PGA.

    1. So they can play may­be 6–8 tour­na­ments a year? Not gon­na hap­pen… and least not for the young guns. LIV may get a few more on the down­hill side of their care­ers like the 12 or so that left… maybe.

  16. So you can play on the PGA tour and the Euro­pean tour be a mem­ber on both but not for this new league not say­ing I’m for the liv tour but does­n’t make sen­se on why the are banned

  17. How could an ama­teur qua­li­fy for a LIV tour­na­ment? I under­stand the PGA pro­cess, but haven’t heard or read anything on how LIV hand­les qualifying.

  18. Like every indus­try, com­pe­ti­ti­on is good for qua­li­ty of over­all pro­duct.. PGA may be sca­red but golf fans should be pumped

    1. You ever left one job to go make more money some­whe­re else? You ever left a job becau­se you weren’t hap­py with your employ­er? You only con­si­der it a sell­out becau­se of the amount of money at sta­ke but it’s no dif­fe­rent than what I just mentioned.

    2. @Tim Dar­nell The­re are some simi­la­ri­ties, but I most­ly dis­agree with what you’­re say­ing in this case. This has a lot more to do with an orga­niz­a­ti­on which is public-facing, and its mem­bers and their noto­rie­ty direct­ly help bring in reve­nue for this orga­niz­a­ti­on which has sup­por­ted their care­ers pro­vi­ding oppor­tu­nities and venues and jobs to all the cour­ses and cau­ses it sup­ports. Mul­ti­ple play­ers exi­t­ing at the same time direct­ly impact the orga­niz­a­ti­on which is public-facing. Sure they can lea­ve, but bes­i­des the obvious cha­sing of the $$, it’s a much grea­ter impact in magnitu­de com­pa­red to one lea­ving an accoun­ting job to join a dif­fe­rent accoun­ting firm to make 10% more money.

  19. Feed you fami­ly guys and don’t reg­ret It. You made it this far so play for money, then When you make enough to sit com­for­ta­b­ly, then play for your legacy.

  20. The PGA Tour is so pet­ty for this type of thing… You­Tube golf is more enter­tai­ning than the tour nowa­days any­ways, hope­ful­ly it just fades away into more leagues this and golf beco­mes less pre­ten­tious in the near future! 🤙

  21. It’s not sur­pri­sing that gol­fers are taking the Sau­dis money the sur­pri­se is the fan that cheer it on…..because this is the same crowd that wan­ted to file a law suite against the Sau­dis for 911 but hey money Trumps all that I guess.

  22. The PGA is a sta­gnant ana­chro­nism. Jay Mona­han has not done his job to moder­ni­ze the PGA and make it more pal­la­ti­ble for the play­ers. Time for a new PGA Chairman.

  23. David Duval – real­ly??? The examp­le you set for your kids was flaun­ting the Nike swoosh for years. I sup­po­se you didn’t get paid for that gre­at examp­le? Or are you real­ly obli­vious to what that means and the atro­ci­ties asso­cia­ted with Nike manu­fac­tu­ring? Tru­ly laughable!

  24. I have not heard anyo­ne say whats the dif­fe­rence from play­ing in the LIV tour com­pa­red to PGA mem­bers play­ing on the Euro­pean tour. Sure you have to play so many PGA events to keep your card but then your can go right ahead and play some Euro­pean tour events. Whats the dif­fe­rence? Or is the PGA just pis­sed at the money being given ? It’s also kind of fun­ny that the PGA ban­ned 10 play­ers who alrea­dy quit. I quit , NO your fired!

    1. The PGA Tour and Euro­pean Tour aren’t direct­ly com­pe­ting with each other. They’­ve signed a num­ber of joint ven­tures tog­e­ther. They share spon­sor­s­hips, events that are sanc­tion­ed on both tours, Mona­han sits on the board of the Euro­pean Tour now as well, the PGA Tour has sta­kes in Euro­pean Tour Pro­duc­tions, they’­ve signed deals to rest­ruc­tu­re pri­ze money and sche­du­ling, a lot of other things. LIV is direct­ly com­pe­ting against both tours.

    1. No, but they have asso­cia­ted them­sel­ves with a cri­mi­nal régime. In the cur­rent cli­ma­te the­se gol­fers had an oppor­tu­ni­ty to stand up to a cor­rupt régime but ins­tead they sold them­sel­ves out. Very disappointing.

    2. @barry o’sullivan they are just play­ing golf mate. As if Ame­ri­ca isn’t doing tra­de with coun­tries with what we call shady. The PGA isn’t hap­py about competition

    3. @barry o’sullivan yet Ame­ri­ca & Sau­di Ara­bia are lar­ge tra­ders……. Why is that fine, yet a PGA mem­ber not allo­wed to play in a golf tour­na­ment. Seems hypo­cri­ti­cal. Why are Rus­si­an ten­nis play­ers allo­wed to play in US tour­na­ments when war cri­mes are being made by their country.

  25. Good for the PGA they have made the­se play­ers multimillionaires
    And that’s the thanks they give by run­ning away for more money.
    I’ll be watching PGA events and never watching LIV golf. My fami­ly is about human rights for women and children.

  26. Hi guys, I’m a slow lear­ner. I’m not get­ting why PGA is so much against with LIV? What was the big­gest rea­son behind all this? I thought LIV is just ano­t­her league of golf. Can anyo­ne exp­lain to me, please?

    1. I think they pga is afraid of com­pe­ti­ti­on and losing their prime spot is all. If they were put­ting gol­fers first they wouldn’t be so crazy.

    2. Media rights, com­pe­ti­ti­ve league will allow play­ers to own their media rights hence free agent which is a thre­at to the PGA tour sin­ce they pro­fit a lot from play­ers media rights.

  27. The­se guys bet­ter live up to their big con­tracts with the Sau­dis or they will be invi­ted to lunch at their embas­sy and never be heard from again. The­se dudes do not mess around. Good luck boys. This will not turn out well.

    1. You think DJ will be taken down for a Satur­day morning sto­ning if he makes too many bogeys?

      Come on… we all like having a laugh, but you’­re get­ting a bit car­ri­ed away now!

  28. I kind of fun­ny when PGA tal­king about human rights play whe­re they want is human rights PGA does­n’t con­trol the world of golf tournaments

  29. It’s only a game of golf and they are pro­fes­sio­nal play­ers, they should have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to play any­whe­re they choo­se. Does the PGA own play­ers ??? may­be their mem­bers­hip is archaic and needs to be brought up to date. May­be both par­ties are thin­king money money money.

    1. Well PGA is an asso­cia­ti­on and they are mem­ber of that asso­cia­ti­on. I don’t know about you, but if I want to be part of some club, I usual­ly fol­low their rules. And the­se play­er free­ly deci­ded (as you put it yourself) they will play for ano­t­her asso­cia­ti­on, brea­king the rules of their pre­vious asso­cia­ti­on. And this asso­cia­ti­on has every right to deny them par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on in the events that they orga­ni­ze. Kind of simp­le if you think about it…

    2. @killer angel Becau­se it’s 48 play­er com­pe­ti­ti­on. You think it is pos­si­ble not to have a cut with 300 play­ers on a tournament?

    1. Per­so­nal­ly I’m a fan of kee­ping social jus­ti­ce out of pro sports. Don’t let pro-golf turn into for­mu­la 1 whe­re every dri­ver has their pet social pro­ject they can’t seem to stop pro­mo­ting while working for their team. It’s irri­ta­ting to be con­stant­ly guilt trip­ped by millionaires.

  30. So is the Golf Chan­nel a chan­nel about golf or a PGA chan­nel? If it’s a golf chan­nel, then perhaps they should show some high­lights from the LIV tour! I thought the 1st round went well. Good for­mat, coverage, pace of play and the announ­cers did a good job. Oh, and the golf was pret­ty good.

    1. @Aguy from NH ya, if they were a legi­ti­ma­te media out­let they would cover liv. I’ve never once heard the golf chan­nel dis­c­lo­se that they are essen­ti­al­ly pr for the pga. It’s obvious, but they should still sta­te their position.

    2. I wat­ched day 1 and will be watching day 2 today and I was very impres­sed. The fact that I could watch via You­Tube while at work was a huge plus, non stop action. I think it will con­ti­nue to get bet­ter as the tour progresses.

    1. I’m glad LIV exists but let’s not pre­tend it’s rea­listic for any busi­ness to hand a com­pe­ti­tor “assets” to com­pe­te for their mar­ket share.

  31. Rory is an idi­ot. I’m not sure why anyo­ne would lis­ten to him. He is a pup­pet of the PGA. If any of the­se play­ers say they are stay­ing with the PGA becau­se of love of the game, then they are liars. They all play golf for one rea­son. Being able to earn a living play­ing a game.
    The most inte­res­ting play­ers have joi­ned the LIV. I will watch LIV.

  32. Their is two sides but the way I see it , MLB, NFL or NBA play­ers can’t play in ano­t­her league and pick and choo­se what they par­ti­ci­pa­te in. This might be a solo sport, but it’s still a sport with a League. Now their is a com­pe­ting one. IMO the field was kin­da gar­ba­ge and the very few noti­ce­ab­le gol­fers par­ti­ci­pa­ting will start reg­ret­ting it when they can’t play in majors. I’m with the PGA on this one . They were pret­ty clear so they should pick whe­re they play & live with it .

    1. Yea. But the Gol­fers play on the PGA Tour! Until now. I under­stand the tech­ni­ca­li­ty of what you are say­ing, so not real­ly dis­agre­eing I sup­po­se but it is what it is.

    2. They will still be able to play in majors. Tho­se arent orga­ni­zed by the PGA Tour. Unless tho­se com­mit­tees come out and say they will be bar­red from com­pe­ting in them, not­hing will chan­ge for majors.

    3. App­les and oran­ges that can’t be com­pa­red. PGA play­ers have no con­tract like in other sports. Plus, play­ers beco­me free agents and can pick and choo­se whe­re they play. Tho­se leagues aren’t mono­po­lies like the PGA.

    4. @Matt Muir­head 😅 Dam… a lot of unedu­ca­ted peop­le pos­ting on here. What is the PGA Cham­pions­hip? A major. The Mas­ters has alrea­dy said they have to be in good stan­ding and The Open has said as much. The U.S. Open is accep­t­ing play­ers with exemp­ti­ons so the­re’ll be about 3 or 4 of tho­se play­ers that will be able to play in ONE major.

  33. well, PGA just drew the line in the sand, time for ever­yo­ne to pick sides… shame, BCS i wan­ted to sup­port both.. i guess the PGA can kiss my ass, for being twats about it

    1. Nope. Dis­play of Ame­ri­can busi­ness decisi­ons and mar­ket com­pe­ti­ti­on, as well as con­trac­tu­al obli­ga­ti­ons as a part of a who­le­so­me legal system.

  34. I lear­ned in gra­de school that in a com­pe­ti­ti­ve capi­ta­list world more choices is bet­ter for the con­su­mer. PGA + LIV = bet­ter for golf community.

    1. Both the PGA and LIV do not­hing for the average gol­fer except dri­ve up the pri­ce of equip­ment thanks to insa­ne endor­se­ment money, which is now whol­ly unaf­ford­a­ble for many.

    2. I have no inte­rest in third gra­de golf tour­na­ments, which is about all that the LIV events amount to. The­re is zero pres­ti­ge atta­ched to the high­ly over­paid LIV circus.

  35. PGA lea­ders­hip = NCAA lea­ders­hip.… useless. A glo­bal tour like the sur­fing pro tour is the future. Going to the pre­mier golf cour­ses around the world is what’s hap­pe­ning. Major every week.… why not? Poli­tics… US is figh­t­ing wars in Afri­ca and the Midd­le East right now.…. Duval is a dum­bass… take his moral high ground and sho­ve it.

  36. Apart from the majors, watching the PGA tour is super boring. It’s get­ting old. The­re is not­hing new and exci­ting about it. At least LIV is some­thing new and fresh. Time for some change.

  37. So what hap­pens to someo­ne who is not a mem­ber of the PGA tour and plays in Liv golf? will they be allo­wed to later go to Qschool to try to earn a card?

    1. PGA are gon­na be in a tough posi­ti­on, don’t they rea­li­se that the play­ers draw out fans and that makes more money for them. Would­n’t be sur­pri­sed if they allow tho­se play­ers back.

  38. If the PGA were tru­ly com­for­ta­ble with their posi­ti­on on the golf view­er totem pole, they would­n’t be lashing out. They are inju­red alrea­dy and perhaps may be on life sup­port if LIV cat­ches fire.

    1. Inju­red??😅 From what? A dozen gol­fers past their prime, on their down­hill side of their care­er jum­ping ship? Don’t real­ly have much of a head for busi­ness do you?😅

    2. But in a league that gene­ra­tes $1.5B in reve­nue you can’t mone­ta­ri­ly com­pe­te with an enti­ty with a bot­tom­less pit of cash that allows its­elf to pay guys 9 figu­re deals just to join. But I don’t see them crumb­ling with the per­cen­ta­ge of guys who want to stay.

  39. I will con­ti­nue to watch men’s golf.……wherever Tiger is play­ing!! No Tiger, no watch! The­se boys play­ing anti-Ame­ri­can golf bet­ter be care­ful. Tho­se Sau­di folks are as shady as their oil prices!!

  40. Just ado­re the way the golf media is haemor­rha­ging about LIV, AND the hypo­cri­sy with accu­sa­ti­ons about ’sports-washing’ when NOTHING is said about the PGA’s asso­cia­ti­on with Chi­na – the lar­gest vio­la­tor of human-rights – HYPOCRITES! Then there’s this talk about greed, how does the PGA cater to guys that just miss the cut 46 weeks of the year, get paid a meas­ly, pos­si­b­ly, $2k a week and are expec­ted to make a living while adding meet to the PGA tour. Pfft!

  41. First the PGA had to react asap as they have. Now the rea­li­ty of it will just beco­me part of life’s land­s­cape and the real gol­fers will focus on the Cana­di­an Open whe­re they’­re play­ing a natio­nal, not some 54 hole reti­ree golf. If it were not for this amount of dol­lars atta­ched to it, this would get no play bey­ond today. Who’n hell had cared about Phil going on to play most­ly on the seni­or tour, Charles Schwart­zel, West­wood etc? The­se guys had their day in the sun and now at their sun­set the Sau­di money came, ok. Gre­at. But who’n hell cares. As for Poul­ter, his sta­tus was beco­m­ing that of an average pro, though he had a name. I guess he did it in order to ensu­re that his gara­ge was always going to be fil­led with exo­tic wheels. Each had their sto­ry, but they’­re over now. Let’s move on. Plea­se, no more crap about 54 hole reti­ree events. Ugh.
    As for Kevin Na and others, well, who would­n’t take gua­ran­te­ed mil­li­ons over some four or five years. Now, yes, let’s move on. Get backl to real golf. PGA , good work.

    1. Not real­ly. A mono­po­ly would be the PGA filing injunc­tions to pre­vent play­ers from choo­sing to play any­whe­re else. Tel­ling play­ers that make that choice to go else­whe­re that they aren’t wel­co­me to play for you while play­ing for a com­pe­ti­ti­on is fair­ly capi­ta­listic in natu­re. Let­ting play­ers play both would likely rank the tour, as without some down­si­de risk not­hing would be the­re to stop every top play­er from play­ing in LIV and making the PGA obsolete.

    2. @Matt not true. Why do u think the bold print sus­pen­ded inde­fi­ni­te­ly? They are sta­ting if you play for LIV and if that league fails, your care­er is over. U can’t ever come back to PGA. That is not free mar­ket. That is what someo­ne who owns the who­le mar­ket would say.

  42. If I made 75 mil­li­on as a result of play­ing the PGA tour I would be pret­ty thank­ful and not have to worry so much about what is best for my fami­ly. When is enough enough?

    1. It’s a PC respon­se to not piss off the PGA if the LIV does­n’t work out. Most of the­se guys are just gon­na come out and say how they real­ly feel about the PGA.

    2. 75 mil­li­on is not net, the­se play­ers have huge taxes, bills etc…As well as gift tax, if they want to give their kids and fami­ly mem­bers mil­li­ons of dol­lars each, they are taxed for this too at an outra­ge­ous pri­ce. So stop acting like they aren’t allo­wed to want more to give the­re fami­lies in the future. 75 mil­li­on is not actual­ly 75 million.

  43. Tiger … whe­re are you on this?

    Would love to see you make a chan­ge. Remem­ber the way Fuz­zy Zoel­ler trea­ted you on that first win in Augus­ta? I doubt you’d get the same out­side of the old man’s club.

  44. The fact that the PGA has the sup­port of the main stream media tells me all I need to know. Thanks to the inter­net, more and more are waking up to how cor­rupt our world is. Every time they fix one leak, three more appe­ar on this sin­king ship.

  45. David Duval must be wea­ring clown shoes. “I won­der if any thought has ever gone in to the examp­les you set for your wife and child­ren…” GTFOH 🤡

  46. It is hil­arious to me how peop­le are so outra­ged by the Saudi’s actions while wea­ring brands like Nike that run child sweat­shops in third world coun­tries XD. The­se peop­le act like they are so moral­ly superior.

    1. That is what employ­ers do. Tho­se who do not like it can lea­ve. Why do you even care? You do not live their life­style and you should say the same about Mc Donalds employees who com­p­lain about their jobs. That is on your level.

    2. @The truth For now The PGA is not their employ­er. It does­n’t pay just becau­se your the­re. You don’t make the cut, tough shit. It brings per­for­mers to it’s sta­ge. Now if the play­er signed a con­tract, then I could see the PGA’ s side. Play­ers are inde­pen­dent workers. They go whe­re the money is.

    3. @Mike McDo­nald okay they left and went for the money. We all lea­ve jobs at some point for more money. But once we lea­ve the­re is no loo­king back. The rea­son they made so much money is becau­se the PGA is a top shelf pro­duct. They secu­re the best cour­ses and impro­ve on them. That cos­ts money. If the PGA was rin­ky dink view­ers would not be watching and the pur­ses would be like the Hogan tour or wha­te­ver they are cal­ling the tour below. Pros who gra­dua­te to the PGA are in awe of the first class tre­at­ment and the orga­niz­a­ti­on of the PGA. That takes money.

  47. Inte­res­ting how they wai­ted for Phil to com­mit to Liv and then they make this sava­ge announ­ce­ment lol… ie fuck u Phil lol

  48. The­se guys real­ly need to get off their high-and-mighty…
    99.9% of Saudi’s had not­hing to do with any of the mora­li­ty play going on. We have dan­ced with the devil on many many occa­si­ons. thru histo­ry. They are still an ally and we as coun­try still do all kinds of busi­ness with them. Let’s keep it about golf, ok? The PGA just does­n’t want to share the sand­box, period!

  49. you know what i love this guy even tho i like LIV hes honest and truth­full in his ans­wers and you can tell by the quick response

  50. If someo­ne offers me dou­ble the amount of money for less hours of work, Ill defi­ni­te­ly go for it. 72 holes vs 54. Also the gol­fers that don’t make the cut in PGA, don’t get paid anything, whe­re­as ever­y­bo­dy gets paid in the LIV. The PGA is acting like a dictatorship…

    1. Yeah, but only hand­ful of play­ers get paid, becau­se it’s 48-man com­pe­ti­ti­on. If you wan­na get to that level, for the Sau­di orga­ni­zers wan­ting to sign you, you still have to go trough PGA tour. The­re are no juni­or tour­na­ments, the­re is no admis­si­on to 200th best play­er in the world. You are in only if you are a pro­ven play­er. And they don’t give 22-yea­rold a chan­ce to pro­ve them­sel­ves unless they alrea­dy won n major. Nobo­dy else, but tho­se high pro­fi­le play­ers gets their fair chan­ce in the­se events. Ever­y­bo­dy still have to climb to their sta­tus through PGA events. So it actual­ly does not­hing for the sport. It’s a small millionaire’s pri­va­te club, not­hing more than that. PGA does all the work, and they just want to skim the cream…

  51. PGA golf is about to get shit­ter. the majo­ri­ty of view­ers watch golf becau­se they want to see cer­tain play­ers and the­re aren’t many favo­ri­tes Tiger woods has to be #1 then Phil, Dus­tin, and Bry­son, if the­se guys aren’t in it do you real­ly care if you miss a day of viewing? yeah, you may be inte­res­ted in the wee­kend play but without the­se guys play­ing it’s not the same. No one has step­ped up to take over the spot­light like the 4 men­tio­ned. if this is about some moral rea­so­ning becau­se they don’t like play­ers play­ing for peop­le that are con­nec­ted with the mur­der of Jamal Khash­og­gi why don’t they direct their ener­gy at the government, the government is still in busi­ness with Sau­dis, even after the mur­der and the US never even impo­sed sanc­tions? the PGA is acting like child­ren and attacking the play­ers for no good rea­son. play­ers got bills to pay and mom­ma needs new shoes. fans just want to watch their favo­ri­te play­ers play golf and if this new league gives us more opti­ons all the bet­ter. if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. FORE 🏌️‍♀️⛳

    1. Lol! You serious­ly think peop­le only tune in for Phil, Bry­son and DJ?🤔 You do rea­li­ze the last 3 mon­ths they’­ve been in 4 tour­na­ments… COMBINED. Record atten­dance and view­ers­hip this spring… sor­ry. They’­re not gon­na be missed.

    2. @Lake Ozark REI peop­le abso­lute­ly do. You’re lying to yourself if you think the big names in golf aren’t what dri­ve ticket sales and view­ers­hip. Pro­ven win­ners like Phil, Rory, and DJ don’t play often so when they do it’s a huge boost to reve­nues, same goes for the other big names still in the PGA.

  52. How is the PGA Tour a 501C? MLB and NFL use to have this sta­tus, they lost it. NBA never had it pro­bab­ly becau­se his­to­ri­cal­ly among the NFL, MLB and NBA, the NBA was always his­to­ri­cal­ly more the niche sport. Golf becau­se it has always done cha­ri­ty in the past would his­to­ri­cal­ly be a 501C. But today, are they real­ly a 501C? How many 501C’s have Pen­si­on plans like the PGA has?

  53. Who cares wat the PGA, dase to the­se play­ers that play­ing in the liv tour­na­ment, every bad­dy in the field is gua­ran­te­ed, a pay day awe­so­me yep, the PGA don’t like a new com­pe­ti­tor, that they are facing, yea they thought not­hing gon­na stop them from the strong hold they hav on pro­fes­sio­nal golf, but guess wat, the boo­gi golf man has come to the fore­front, with a not­her golf idea, its call LIV, GOLF over 40 in the field an more to come from the PGA, RANKS, well done morm­my, an theirs still ple­nty more room for a not­her gol­fing, idea, like they say all good things come to an end, an new thing sprout again , just like the food chain line, cars, truck, trains pla­ne, an many other busi­ness around the world, so MR, PGA, STOP winging, 👍

  54. It would be so fun­ny if RORY made the chan­ge to LIV… he’s defi­ni­te­ly get­ting low key offers from them… So is Ricky… and pro­bab­ly a hand full of others… this is great…

    1. The PGA is puf­fing. I don’t rea­listi­cal­ly belie­ve if this league fai­led they would genui­nely refu­se to take any play­ers back.

  55. Seems like the PGA does not rea­li­ze that the play­ers make them what they are. Now they are slow­ly lea­king top play­ers. Peop­le may say the­se play­ers are over the hill but, Phil, DJ, and Ser­gio just won majors recent­ly. Now two more US Pres Cup and Ryder Cup play­ers are gone.

    1. Lol! Top play­ers? DJ may­be… but it’s been more then 2 years sin­ce he last won a major or a tour­na­ment, 5+ years for Ser­gio and Phil at 51 snuck one in last year. They’­re all on the down­hill side of their care­er and now just taking the easy $$ lol You did noti­ce that none of the young guns went did­n’t you??😅

  56. I guess ever­yo­ne has a num­ber, if you look at all the major sports teams from NFL, NBA , MLB, NHL the PGA Is like 1.3 mil­li­on not exact on that num­ber but clo­se, they do have the best reti­re­ment plan with all the best medi­cal etc. And you can play golf for deca­des without taking a phy­si­cal bea­ting may­be a men­tal one though. So the PGA don’t have it that bad.

  57. I did the math out ear­lier. If the PGA (based on revenue/number of play­ers) paid their mem­bers the same as the NBA, all play­ers would have a mini­mum of $500k/year salary.

    1. You mean if they don’t pay any of their employees of cour­se? And don’t orga­ni­ze a sin­gle tour­na­ment of cour­se? And don’t give anything to cha­ri­ties or youth com­pe­ti­ti­ons? And you accoun­ted to all 29,000 mem­bers in the US and other ones that are inter­na­tio­nal mem­bers as well, of cour­se? I mean I got a signi­fi­cant­ly dif­fe­rent num­ber, but who cares, right… You are just making a point.

  58. PGA lashing out & showing the rest of the PGA play­ers the con­se­quen­ces PGA are all about that olé school plan­ta­ti­on plat­form OWNERS COMMODITY & PROPERTY all PGA play­ers are now owned but it’s good to see pro­fes­sio­nal golf play­ers get­ting paid their worth respec­ted as play­ers not orde­red around for inter­views or do this & that for the PGA busi­ness & reve­nue All PGA did was sup­ply play­ers for as lil money as pos­si­ble for the big­gest return & the play­ers are the cash cows for the PGA

    1. 😅🤣I’m sure the slaves on tho­se plan­ta­ti­ons woul­da took the mil­li­ons 💵 they were making on the PGA tour… 🤡

    2. @Lake Ozark REI They had to take what was give like the pro­fes­sio­nal golf play­ers on the PGA TOUR 🤷🏽‍♂️ & The PGA trea­ting pro­fes­sio­nal golf play­ers like pro­per­ty & using their com­mo­di­ty (Con­tracts & exemptions)as a thre­at to keep them all in their place (Plantation)you wan­na talk slaves & taking mil­li­ons That’s the ones that stay­ed & took what the PGA gave or did­n’t & the play­ers that have been can­cel­led from The PGA pre­si­dents cup & other exemp­ti­ons are the free player’s (slaves) that get trea­ted like human’s & respec­ted as pro­fes­sio­nal golf play­ers not (property)but most of all they get paid their worth & pro­bab­ly more free­dom & a choice to play in other tournaments 🤡💯✅

  59. Nobo­dy has addres­sed the ele­phant in the room. The Sau­di lea­ders are hor­ri­ble humans. Any gol­fer who works for them is ris­king his soul.

  60. Lol, Duval is a litt­le turd, pis­sed he didn’t get the­se kind of oppor­tu­nities. Moral fool, pre­ten­ding like he has a compass!

  61. Such a crock of crap. The PGA is a rather pom­pous, out of touch estab­lish­ment that seems to care very litt­le about what the fans real­ly want. I keep hea­ring this reoc­cur­ring line about what the PGA is beco­m­ing and doing etc. How about sharing that with the golf com­mu­ni­ty becau­se I haven’t seen anything dif­fe­rent or exci­ting hap­pe­ning at all. The LIV tour seems way more inte­res­ting and fun and has mana­ged to gene­ra­te more exci­te­ment at least con­cep­tio­nal­ly in a very short peri­od of time than the PGA has done in my life­time. I feel like they’­re out­da­ted and run by a bunch of “sticks in the mud” who always seem to be on the wrong side of things. It’s rare­ly a good look for them and this is just ano­t­her examp­le of that. As a lifel­ong play­er and fan of this incredi­ble game we all love I am loo­king for­ward to the upco­m­ing LIV tour and hope to see even more play­ers get­ting big money and having fun ins­tead of a bunch of sour-pus­sed faces who look like their lay­ing roofing tiles for a living half the time. It’s time for this addi­ti­on to the sport.

  62. Won­der how many play­ers who denoun­ce liv have ever play­ed in Sau­di or sur­roun­ding coun­tries through Euro­pean Tour? 🤔

  63. If the gol­fers are tru­ly inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors as they claim to be, then the PGA has every right to ter­mi­na­te their con­tracts if they choo­se to move to help a com­pe­ti­tor. Whe­ther it is a good busi­ness decisi­on or not remains to be seen.

    1. It’s not a con­tract, it’s a mem­bers­hip. The PGA tour has had a mono­po­ly on pro golf for deca­des. Loo­ks to me like the PGA is afraid of some competition.

  64. Ame­ri­can golf and play­ers going abroad 🤣. Wait that sounds fami­li­ar 🧐 reminds me of our manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try. We’ll see how much pres­ti­ge majors and tour­na­ments abroad car­ry. So far they’re low on the totem pole. Obvious­ly money at the cen­ter, and Sau­dis have lots of it now thanks to you know who!

  65. Tiger only decli­ned cau­se he see’s a weak field in future majors. If he was 22, he make 2 bil­li­on dol­lars with LIV. Let’s stop trea­ting gol­fers like their not in it for the money. Zero judgment to get the bag of GUARANTEED cash!

  66. The same PGA Tour asso­cia­ti­on that was char­ging $18 for a can of beer at the PGA cham­pions­hip, is shaming guys for going to make more money on a dif­fe­rent tour?!?! Hmmm… hypo­cri­sy at it’s finest.

  67. I’m pret­ty sure several, and one of the most famous cour­ses on the PGA tour, ban­ned women and peop­le of color for years and years, and were proud of it. Yet all the­se now noble PGA gol­fers throw shade at tho­se lea­ving for ano­t­her tour that has a shady back­ground also. “Do they think of the examp­le they set for the wife and kids”? Did you? Play­ing at a cour­se that your wife and daugh­ter could never join? Dou­ble stan­dard much?

  68. 150 mil­li­on is a pret­ty good num­ber to keep you from worry­ing about an inde­fi­ni­te sus­pen­si­on. The play­ers I’m sure have accep­ted the fact that they pro­bab­ly can’t play in the majors.

    1. @Jeff Boyd Yes I know that but I think a lot of play­ers care about the other 3 majors than the PGA. But I was thin­king if the USGA, R&A and Augus­ta didn’t allow them from an ethi­cal stand­point and inde­pendent­ly said “no you can’t play”

    2. @Alexander Jef­fe­ries Do tho­se other majors sud­den­ly hate how much money tho­se play­ers bring in? Gol­fers are inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors and are allo­wed to do anything they want. Why can play­ers play the Euro­pean tour and PGA tour? LIV just chan­ged the game.

    1. Aha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­h­ah­haa­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha!!! This made my day… Vin­dic­ti­ve always.… Aha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha­ha!! Good one man…

  69. If anyo­ne actual­ly con­si­ders lea­ving the PGA tour for LIV golf it not only con­veys your gree­dy sel­fi­sh natu­re but your com­ple­te 🤡 beha­vi­or. PGA is the only tour sui­ta­ble for golf and no one should be fuck­ing with Saudis

  70. Stand with pga the hell with tho­se ung­ra­te­ful bas­tards I’m glad their a gone theyll reg­ret it when the ter­ro­rist backed league folds never let em back

  71. Wtf is that ques­ti­on? How to greet his friends like dj? Just greet them like usu­al. They just play in ano­t­her tournament…
    Why the repor­ter assu­me like dj and co going to war against us? Like they are some kind of trai­tor. THEY JUST PLAY IN ANOTHER TOURNAMENT. GROW THE FUCK UP.
    it’s like g.higgo play in euro­pean tour, anything dif­fe­rent? Like common…

  72. Not every gol­fer is tiger, alot of them are paid not­hing com­pa­red to other athletes…they are paid in gear, and golf rounds alot of the time.

    1. No they can’t lol PGA is a pri­va­te enti­ty… they deci­de whon­plays and who does­n’t. Other­wi­se I’d be in this week’s RBC Open with my 18 handicap..😅

  73. I find it ama­zing that a play­er deci­ding to play 8 events and not on Sundays gets told that they are not thin­king about their families.
    😂😂😂😂😂😂
    That’s EXACTLY who are they thin­king about vs 30 events all away from home.

    1. LIV will fly them home on Sundays jn pri­va­te jets .
      I’m star­ting to won­der about if PGA cha­ri­ta­ble tax free sta­tus is a shell, weird to see a cha­ri­ty being draconian

    2. It’s fun­ny how a league that doesn’t gua­ran­tee anything to its play­ers acts like the play­ers owe them loyal­ty. Give me a break. I don’t want to hear anything about the Saudi’s eit­her. Whe­re is your Pre­si­dent at right now. He’s going to break bread with the Crown Prince. We as Ame­ri­cans have been in business/trade with the Saudi’s for decades. 

      The PGA has been able to ope­ra­te without any com­pe­ti­ti­on for deca­des and they’ve taken advan­ta­ge of that sta­tus. The PGA have been on the wrong side of histo­ry time and time again.

  74. the ques­ti­on for J.T, RORY AND CO should be HOW DO YOU GUY’S FEEL BEING SLAVE OF PGA AND HAVE NO FREEDOM TO PLAY ELSEWHERE…
    why nobo­dy asking that?
    If someo­ne make a com­pe­ti­ti­on for top 10 gol­fer in the world to see who is the best that year with 100m pri­ce money, can they participate?
    Enjoy being slave of pga

  75. I’m not even inte­res­ted in watching the PGA tours now, con­si­de­ring how they have acted like a bunch of petu­lant child­ren just becau­se someo­ne final­ly threa­tened their monopoly.

  76. The PGA is try­ing to enfor­ce a glo­bal mono­po­ly on the sport of golf…
    I look for­ward to them losing their ass in court…

  77. The LIV par­ti­ci­pants don’t give a stuff. They are collec­ting easy money from a repre­hen­si­ble régime for play­ing in third rate tour­na­ments. The­re is no pres­ti­ge atta­ched to LIV golf. I’ve lost all respect for Greg Nor­man for hel­ping to orches­tra­te the LIV events. How much money does he need? He could­n’t spend all the money he has alrea­dy accu­mu­la­ted in his life, so why go after even more when it is no bet­ter than accep­t­ing blood money? Greg Nor­man is a hero to many Aus­sies, but I bet ple­nty of other Aus­sies now hold him in much lower regard.

  78. Jay Mona­han is a gelding.…..so sca­red the LIV golf tour is going to fuck up the PGA tour that he’s alrea­dy began threa­tening them. The first sign of weak­ness from the PGA tour. I’d be laug­hing out loud about this state­ment if I was Greg Nor­man. This is the first step of the fall of the PGA tour, hopefully.

  79. Sau­di golf league? I would say the US should stop making Sau­di to export oil using US dol­lars or Sau­di to stop tra­ding oil in US dol­lars. Eit­her way the US eco­no­my will end up in trash bin wit­hin 1 week. BE NICE TO SAUDI AMERICA!

  80. Rea­ding the comments here, I suspect that LIV has adop­ted the paid comments or bots approach in an effort to lift the este­em in which its third gra­de golf events are held by the public. No more than a curio­si­ty at the start, but I can’t see hol­ding the inte­rest of the public when you look at the qua­li­ty of play­ers that are participating.

    1. Exact­ly… I wat­ched 30 mins and had to turn it. It was like watching the Korn Fer­ry tour with an occa­sio­nal appearan­ce by a PGA play­er on the down­hill side of their career😅

    2. I am for the play­ers and am not a bot or paid. I am a gol­fer and golf is a job for the­se play­ers. I get them going for the paycheck. If the PGA chan­ges to a for pro­fit com­pa­ny, they can start paying play­ers to show up also. They have saved 200–300 mil­li­on in taxes by being a non pro­fit. That decisi­on hel­ps the PGA , not the gol­fers. This is a busi­ness and the play­ers have to make wha­te­ver busi­ness decisi­on is best for them and their families.

    3. @batsonelec C You make it sound as if the­se poor bas­tards are star­ving becau­se of the pit­tance they earn on the estab­lis­hed tours. Hope­ful­ly some of their spon­sors will walk away from them becau­se the expo­sure through LIV events will be very limited.

    4. @Peter Tay­lor except for the top 3–5 names, I doubt the others make a who­le lot. Get­ting free golf equip­ment does­n’t pay any bills. Many spon­sor­s­hips are just free cus­tom equip­ment, not actu­al money.

    5. @batsonelec C They get the­re expen­ses cove­r­ed, they make good to excel­lent pri­ze money, they get appearan­ce money in ple­nty of coun­tries out­side the US, they get lar­ge spon­sor­s­hip inco­mes. All the gol­fers on the main PGA tour are very well to do.

  81. For tho­se who said that play­ing the PGA Tour is not for money…yah if they cut the pri­ze to 1/10th, let’s see how many top play­ers will stay. The Tour sim­ply can’t stand ano­t­her tour paying more prizes…

  82. Rory in 5th is the only name I reco­gni­ze. the PGA is dead if it bans tho­se big name play­ers, peri­od. The­re are 3 big names being DQ’d and that is enough for me to not watch. The PGA is a Non pro­fit to save paying taxes , so they can’t direct­ly pay play­ers, that is their choice to save the esti­ma­ted 200–300 mil­li­on in taxes over the deca­des. If they were For Pro­fit, they could pay a show up fee and get all the big names every week. The PGA being gree­dy is why this has hap­pen­ed. I love golf and I don’t have a pro­blem with gol­fers going whe­re the money is, sin­ce it is their damn job after all and they don’t get paid at all with the PGA unless they make it to the wee­kend, and the num­ber that does is always limited.

    1. You watch golf for Ser­gio Gar­cia spit­ting in the hole & a 50+political Ken doll Phil? DJ does make me chuck­le when he mis­ses his 14th 2 foo­ter on a Sunday though. I’ll real­ly miss that.

  83. Good luck on the Bone­saw tour Phil. Just remem­ber not to cri­ti­ci­ze the prince or you’ll have an appoint­ment at the embassy

  84. Well… I wat­ched the LIV ear­lier… I made it through about 30 minu­tes befo­re tur­ning it. Was like watching the Korn Fer­ry Tour with an occa­sio­nal appearan­ce by an actu­al tour player..😅

  85. The PGA needs some com­pe­ti­ti­on! They want to be the only game in town, and expect their play­ers to be good litt­le slaves. When was the last time the PGA was audi­ted? An orga­niz­a­ti­on that claims to be non­pro­fit but rakes in the money they do, should have year­ly audits.

  86. It’s defi­ni­te­ly time for some com­pe­ti­ti­on. I’m glad for Liv.
    May­be they can com­pe­te again each other

  87. Sca­red that’s all I see let’s not for­get the pga tour it self was a bre­aka­way tour it can’t take a bit of competition

  88. DJ got a exemp­ti­on ear­lier this year from the pga to play in Sau­di Arabia….sooooooo what are we doing. Oh side note, the pga has a WGC in chi­na. Just saying

  89. From what I can tell The PGA is acting and per­forming like a monopoly,hell if I was a pro gol­fer play­ing for money and LIV offe­red me that kind of cash the hell with the PGA rules,the play­ers play for the PGA, they don’t work for the PGA ‚and if the play­ers who are con­cer­ned with the moral issu­es some of which a few peop­le like Bran­del Cham­blee have bought up then they should also not play in the Shell Hous­ton Open,and a few other spon­sors that in some way shape or form have the­re feet under the same table as the Saudi’s ‚just my opi­ni­on of course.

    1. Nope.. PGA is acting and per­forming like any other club. If you are a mem­ber, you have to obey to the club rules.. You know, like in your local golf club.. You just can’t come and play in your flip-flops with plastic clubs. Just can’t… And if you don’t obey the rules, you can’t stay a mem­ber of that club. You are allo­wed to beco­me a mem­ber of ano­t­her club, which they all did and got paid real good for it. So, as Geor­ge Con­stan­za would say.. NO DOUBLE DIPPING!!

  90. May­be the PGA should up their prize’s money if they want to keep the best! Just like the NBA or MLB they play their play­ers more money than other league and have the best of the best. Howe­ver, play­ers have the right to play whe­re­ver they want.

  91. Well I would rather not play for an asso­cia­ti­on that think they own you, all the play­ers that went to liv are pro­bab­ly thin­king “well. Screw you then” 😂 I for one think the liv tour is a well nee­ded moder­nis­ed approach to the game to get more peop­le invol­ved, it’s exci­ting and team based which I think will appro­ve to a big­ger varie­ty of youn­ger audience

    1. More peop­le invol­ved? It’s 48 top tier play­ers. No chan­ce for any­bo­dy to get into this league unless they pro­ve them sel­ves through what? PGA tour events of cour­se. Which PGA orga­ni­zes… On all levels, not only top-tier level. Giving the same chan­ce to ever­y­bo­dy. While LIV gives the same chan­ce only to 48 players…

    2. @highway_star not direct­ly invol­ved I apo­lo­gi­se, I mean in terms of inte­rest, peop­le who don’t watch golf now will watch this

  92. Very disap­poin­ting that so many gol­fers would sell out in this man­ner. Not sur­pri­sed at Mickel­son or Nor­man as they come across as very shal­low indi­vi­du­als but the others have let them­sel­ves down very bad­ly. Talk about doing anything for money.

    1. How come? They had con­tracts with PGA and they bree­ched them by not obey­ing to the play­book rules. The­re is no grounds for a lawsu­it here as I see it

  93. Bunch of past prime play­ers being bought out to play for a Sau­di prince? I would only watch if they reinvent the game and strict­ly play in desert sand with camels as caddies.

  94. Who give a fudge what y’all think. You play golf to sup­port yourself and your fami­lies, so do they. You don’t pay their bills, so shut the fudge up. SMFH

  95. Media relea­ses mea­ning that the PGA wants to con­trol all the liken­es­ses of ALL of its play­ers. Good for tho­se who wal­ked away from the “non-pro­fit” cha­ri­ty which is the PGA

  96. A ques­ti­on to tho­se who know, what “tour­na­ment regu­la­ti­ons” exact­ly are being refer­red to? Becau­se what about the peop­le that play both DP world and PGA tour­na­ments? Would­n’t any co-sanc­tio­n­ing of events in any case con­tra­ve­ne the­se regu­la­ti­ons? OR does it only count for tours or events that might com­pe­te with PGA on a fair footing?

    1. The PGA tour grant relea­ses for their play­ers to play Euro­pean tour events. When the play­ers asked to play the LIV event the tour decli­ned the release

  97. LIV will only sur­vi­ve as long as the Sau­di royal­ty throw money into it. They go & LIV goes with it. Then all tho­se guys turn into Euro­pean Tour play­ers. Good luck.

  98. Duval tal­king about values like he’s play­ed for free and the love of the game his who­le care­er. Lol

  99. I doubt DJ real­ly knew what he was doing… I bla­me his inner cir­cle for giving him hor­ren­dous advice. He will reg­ret this decisi­on. Scratch that… I think he pro­bab­ly wakes up in a new world every day!!

  100. It’s inte­res­ting – the argu­ment about human rights and the Sau­dis being the rea­son why the­se gol­fers shouldn’t par­ti­ci­pa­te. Chi­na has MUCH worse human rights issu­es, geno­ci­de in fact, howe­ver the PGA and other sports wel­co­me their sports peop­le, and we all still buy stuff made in Chi­na! – a bit hypo­cri­ti­cal don’t you think?
    Also I belie­ve that it’s good for golf. The 50 plus gol­fers lea­ving the PGA will give an oppor­tu­ni­ty to 50 plus up and com­ing future stars to get into tou­ring golf earlier.

  101. PGA mono­po­ly same as the UFC. This is a glo­bal game, more future jobs and more future talent to come, talk about the posi­ti­ves. Only Ame­ri­ca golf upset, rest of us, very hap­py to see some­thing new.

  102. Fun­ny. The pga tour is arro­gant enough to think that they are the stan­dard to mea­su­re all high level golf by. Why? Becau­se they say so?
    There’s soooo much ama­zing golf out the­re. Enjoy all of it.
    The only thing the pga tour has done is expo­se them­sel­ves to be the sel­fi­sh, self-ser­ving , into­le­rant, thin-skin­ned divas that they are.

  103. I just don’t under­stand why pros can’t play in both tours if they want to. Ima­gi­ne decli­ning an 8+ figu­re offer just becau­se your other place of work says they’ll sus­pend you inde­fi­ni­te­ly when you’ve made them more money than they’ve payed you. Kin­da stinks

    1. Why aren’t all play­er allo­wed to play in LIV tour­na­ment, just the­se 48 guys, who by the way build their care­er trough PGA tours? It’s not a tour­na­ment, it’s millionaire’s pri­va­te litt­le golf club, what it is…

  104. So many of the­se mul­ti mil­lion­aires have always cha­sed the dol­lar. They are always try­ing to get into a field whe­re more money is on offer. This is what makes the golf world go round.

  105. I ful­ly pledge my Sup­port to the PGA TOUR. There’s alot of Good rea­sons why it’s the Best Tour To Date, Histo­ry ect. Sad to say the­se player’s are only in it for the $$$ and not what they worked so Hard to accomplish. 

    The LIV Tour should be Tele­vi­sed and not only avail­ab­le for strea­ming. My thoughts

  106. How one sided can you get> You only show the view points of tho­se play­ers that stay­ed with the PGA.! ! ! So it appears to me the golf chan­nel is just like the fake news cor­rupt and one sided.They all must be democraps !

  107. So hap­py to see LIV and the dra­ma hap­pe­ning. Who knows what will hap­pen in the years to come. I suspect that LIV will peel off some PGA talent in the com­ing years as LIV grows and deve­lo­ps. You will always have your tra­di­tio­na­lists and loy­al fans. As new genera­ti­ons come into golf, that will be the tell­ta­le sign of what happens. 

    If the human rights thing was such a pro­blem, Ame­ri­ca should have found their oil else­whe­re after all the­se deca­des. Lord knows that we have enough in the coun­try. I just think the human rights thing is being used in a pawn of this game of chess. Golf is golf. Not­hing more, not­hing less. The PGA allows gol­fers from some of our poli­ti­cal enemies and not-so-friend­ly nati­ons to play. The PGA was one of the last to accept eth­nic mino­ri­ties to play. So, the PGA has dir­ty hands too throughout their histo­ry. Not to men­ti­on, if look at the poli­tics and social agen­das of some of their spon­sors and even mem­bers in their lea­ders­hip, I bet you could find many faults. I can almost gua­ran­tee that much of the pro­ducts they sup­port are not all “Made in the USA”. 

    Let the media and the acti­vists have their day. In time, we will see how this works its­elf out. One day, the­re will be new lea­ders­hip in the PGA and perhaps they will have a dif­fe­rent view of things. Ever­yo­ne talks about money. The PGA, the play­ers, the spon­sors, and all invol­ved in the orga­niz­a­ti­on are knee deep in the money. The PGA is a busi­ness. It is not a charity.

  108. JT, Rory, and Duval could not have said it bet­ter. Greg Norman’s Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on Tro­phy Golf League is all about not living up to the rules of the PGA Tour that the­se guys agreed to when they joi­ned it – and could play at the hig­hest level – who now can’t play at that level, want the money, and are wil­ling to try to make the PGA Tour the bad guys. But hey, at least Greg’s “tour” gives Phil the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pay off his gamb­ling debts.

  109. Regard­less of what I feel about the PGA or LIV… That, to me, is a beau­ti­ful list of play­ers that I don’t have to watch any­mo­re. Could­n’t be hap­pier with their decisi­on to depart. Lou­is, I will miss. Love that dude. Worth get­ting rid of Ser­gio & Phil though. Bye.

  110. About time some com­pe­ti­ti­on to the PGA tour…no more mono­po­ly from now on hopefully…what made laugh is when Jus­tin Tho­mas said ever­yo­ne has a NUMBER….so does that mean how much is his number…if this does grow and grow..do you real­ly think mclroy and co will just stay on pga tour if for examp­le most of the top play­ers jump ship….

  111. What peop­le in this com­ment sec­tion seem to not under­stand is, that the pro­blem is about sup­por­ting the sau­di ara­bi­an régime, espe­cial­ly as an ame­ri­can, is dis­qus­ting. When you think about what ame­ri­can values are. Com­pe­ti­ti­on is good, but an end­less well of money, com­ing from a slave coun­try, is just fking wrong. Espe­cial­ly when you see the for­mat of LIV, its not even a com­pe­ti­ti­on its just boring exhi­bi­ti­on. Wake up people

  112. Ima­gi­ne if a LIV play­er wins next week. Unli­kely as the­re is pro­bab­ly only 1 who could but still be weird. Fair play to the PGA for lay­ing it down to pro­tect their Tour but the­re is a huge amount of hypo­cri­sy. Out­side of the majors and Ryder Cup though the regu­lar tour events are pret­ty dull. You could throw in a hand­ful worth watching, so give them a win­dow, ensu­re they play XX num­ber and I think both “tours” could co-exist. If more big names alas Bry­son defect then I can’t see the bans hol­ding out„ but fair play if the PGA stand firm as that will be the only way to hold the high ground now. They have made their bed.

  113. Its con­fu­sing to try to sus­pend play­ers that have resi­gned from the league. PGA is beha­ving in a foo­lish man­ner. They’­re tar­nis­hing their own reputation…or actual­ly pro­ving what their owners­hip is actual­ly about.

  114. PGA dont like LIV becau­se they are doing pret­ty much same but in a stron­ger way : much more money. They can’t com­pe­te so now they cry. Peop­le colo­nis­ed north Ame­ri­ca, named it USA but … bunch of nomad taking what’s not theirs with power : like LIV is doing right now. Wake up : USA is facing stron­ger countries

  115. I don’t think anyo­ne has come out of this loo­king gre­at. The PGA car­tel are more worried about losing their inco­me than innovation

    And no one should be kid­ding them­sel­ves about morals when it comes to whe­re their pay check comes from. I’m not sure whe­re Ame­ri­ca gets its high hor­se from but they should think about retur­ning it

  116. Well your all hypo­cri­tes THE usa dol­lar has and still is kil­ling peop­le all over the world, the usa war mon­gers i am pis­sed to here the­se un edu­ca­ted gol­fers unbe­liev­a­ble total BULL sh1t, THERE is a bit nice world out the­re not the bs usa„,sugar coated BS

  117. Duval is not being total­ly trans­pa­rent. The United Sta­tes government does busi­ness with Sau­di Ara­bia and Ame­ri­can busi­nes­ses have inte­rest in Sau­di money as well. More than 40 bil­li­on dol­lars of Sau­di money is inves­ted in the United Sta­tes stock market.

  118. David Duval in pur­su­it of the dol­lar and the love of the game signs with Cal­la­way. Club com­pon­ents, Golf appa­rel and Equip­ment made in Chi­na one of the most power­fu­lest coun­tries in the world with egre­gious human rights violations 🤯.
    I rea­li­ze you got to stay in tight with your for­mer cash flow just in case the seni­or thing don’t work out but don’t play their smack tal­king pup­pet to sway public opi­ni­on. Don’t be a pawn in what can turn out to be a lega­li­ty chess game.

  119. If the PGA Tour had just said sure, go play 8 tour­na­ments a year, as long as you main­tain a play­ing sche­du­le on the PGA Tour there’s no pro­blem, then this LIV stuff would just fizz­le out and nobo­dy would care.

  120. Jus­tin, ever­y­bo­dy has a num­ber, you should’ve just said “ hey, if they gave me $1 bil­li­on or more, I would lea­ve the PGA tour tomorrow”

    Just so we have a sen­se of ever­ything being right that you’re saying.

  121. As play­ers who have access to the best tour­na­ments, the­re was no need to join such a radi­cal tour. The play­ers on the PGA or DP world tour work hard to get the­re, and if they lea­ve should have to work the­re way back.

  122. All sus­pen­ded play­ers can join the DP World Tour when not play­ing on the Liv Tour and Majors. Plus not all play­ers have bro­ken the rules as some have resi­gned from the PGA Tour in advan­ce. I’m con­cer­ned that some comments made by jour­na­lists and others could be con­si­de­red defamatory.

  123. Does anyo­ne else find it sus­pi­cious that Trump built a golf club in Dubai in 2017? After hea­ring about this roy­al golf league sweeping through the regi­on I find it sus­pi­cious. It is almost like Trump, DAMAC, and the Sau­di kings were working tog­e­ther in secret.

  124. This real­ly isnt any dif­fe­rent than someo­ne working in a high pro­fi­le posi­ti­on for a lar­ge com­pa­ny You wouldnt work for Ama­zon, and at the same time their next big­gest com­pe­ti­tor would you??

  125. This is no dif­fe­rent than any other ath­le­te chan­ging teams for an impro­ved busi­ness deal…should they not be your friend any longer..get real
