  1. Hey Cham­blee. The PGA Tour has a deal with Chi­na. Chi­na vio­la­tes someo­nes human rights ever minu­te. Of cour­se you will say not­hing. Take your fake patrio­tism else­whe­re. ALL of the com­pa­nies that ali­gned them­sel­ves with the PGA Tour are woke trash. So it’s bad for Mickel­son to take 200mil for this but ok for some cor­po­ra­ti­on to pay him 200 grand for a one day outing? RBC, UPS, FedEX all do busi­ness in Sau­di Arabia.

  2. Hai anna iam Nagen­dar Anna na age 42 Marioncotil​lardd​.Uno qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on m.l.t medi­cal lab tech­ni­cianp ‚Srpt lo jobs unte cheppa­ga­la­ru anna.with govt Jobs

  3. Makes a bunch of points about how bad the liv league is, yet still threa­tened by it. If they are was­hed up play­ers then why do your care so much. Did the pga ban any tour­na­ments in texas con­si­de­ring it was the gover­nor who rela­xed gun laws? Such hypo­cri­tes. Why play in Cana­da. They are fin­ding gra­ves full of dead indi­ge­nous kids. Why play ryder cup in Ita­ly when then Vati­can is respon­si­ble for the deaths of tho­se indi­ge­nous kids. So basi­cal­ly bran­del igno­res the cri­mes of peop­le with his skin colour but……….

  4. Bran­del needs to shut the hell up. The PGA just wants to con­trol every aspect of the game. It’s an orga­niz­a­ti­on run by old, tired mil­lion­aires who only care about image. Stop bashing the play­ers who left and congra­tu­la­te them on their new venture.

  5. C’mon, money talks, and Bran­del is pure­ly a shill for the tour. So, the­se boys are making in a cou­p­le mon­ths what it would take them a life­time; and never gua­ran­te­ed, to earn on the tour. I mean, you only live twice. Bran­del, try and form an argu­ment that does not come out of your backside.

  6. The Grea­test Thing To Hap­pen To Golf Sin­ce Augus­ta Natio­nals First Tournament.…Brandel Cham­blee is a stoo­ge for the PGA tour…Ask what he makes.….Him spea­king of dis­pensable play­ers should address the pga’s ste­aling of play­ers copy­rights and why is he slan­de­ring every one of the­se players…Because he makes mil­li­ons being a tool for the pga tour slave farm.…Today will be one of the grea­test days in com­pe­ti­ti­ve golf history.…The PGA Gulag CCP Com­mu­nist Par­ty is ending.…

  7. All u LIV sup­por­ters wait until u see the ticket pri­ces. Inves­tors want their money back. LIV is a cir­cus sideshow.

  8. Peop­le are jea­l­ous others are get­ting rich? Or are they jea­l­ous they did­n’t get this oppor­tu­ni­ty when they were youn­ger? Not sure

  9. I was worried ab the pga tour until I saw how god damn hor­ri­ble the LIV event broad­cast loo­ks. I don’t even knows what I’m seeing.

  10. Loo­ks like this guy had a few tears In His eyes befo­re this inter­view. Poor guy obvious­ly doesn’t like chan­ge and or to see some­bo­dy else live their own life, how they see fit and be hap­py. This is trig­ge­ring so many peop­le and you have to ask the ques­ti­on why. Every tour in golf should have a gau­ran­te­ed amount of money for ever­yo­ne. If you are good enough to play on the­se tours then you deser­ve to be paid for it. Not spend you own money to be at the tour­na­ment and get cut half way through and lose money, just so the pga tour busi­ness makes money, it makes no sen­se. I think we will see in the com­ing years the pga tour will have to fol­low suit with gau­ran­te­ed pur­ses or they will lose all the players.

  11. Here’s my take on this, most of tho­se moving to the LIV tour aren’t going to make the money on the PGA tour as they would on the LIV tour, they are oversha­do­wed by the rising young stars on the PGA tour and are doing this for no other rea­son than the money. Ok, I get it but don’t malign an orga­niz­a­ti­on that gave you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to play the game, make money, endor­se­ments, get reco­gni­ti­on etc.
    If it wasn’t for your time in the PGA tour you wouldn’t even have this opportunity.
    Is the PGA tour per­fect? No, show me a pro­fes­sio­nal orga­niz­a­ti­on that is but you don’t turn tail and run just becau­se you feel as Phil says, under appre­cia­ted! Really?
    How about ins­tead working to make the tour bet­ter and look what it does posi­tively, lar­gest con­tri­bu­tor to cha­ri­ties of any sport and it’s com­mit­ment to gro­wing the game with juni­or pro­grams is incredible.
    Good luck to the­se guys. I have to side with the PGA on this one.

    1. That may be true for most of the­se gol­fers but I would dis­agree when it comes to Dus­tin John­son, he’s still well in his prime, only 37 years old. I belie­ve he still has gre­at golf left in him.

    2. @Jake Gib­son Real­ly? I chal­len­ge you if you would say the same if this new golf league was backed up by Chi­ne­se money. You don’t have to ans­wer, but if you would, then I’d argue you have dou­ble standards.

    3. @Justino also it’s just ano­t­her way for gol­fers to earn money I’m not mad about that infact I think it might shake the mono­po­ly up becau­se all ath­le­tes on the PGA tour should at least be money neu­tral not wal­king away with it cos­ting them

  12. I think the free agen­cy idea is excel­lent and exci­ting. I think the sports washing from the Sau­dis is atro­cious and dis­gus­ting. I hope the­se gol­fers in LIV are using the Sau­dis and not the other way around

  13. The argu­ment this guy makes about the phil­an­thro­py of the PGA is bull­shit, they are a busi­ness and only do phil­an­thro­py for mar­ke­ting, tax breaks, and good press, they couldnt give a damn about who recei­ves any of their donations

  14. Shame on this clear­ly bia­sed chan­nel. Shame on the pga for mono­po­li­zing the grea­test game ever play­ed. And shame on you if the rea­son you oppo­se LIV has anything to do with who’s money is backing it.

  15. They are showing it live on You­Tube. They have thrown in stro­ke play, Ryder Cup, Fed Ex Cup and draft picks for teams like in other sports. In other words they are try­ing to be ever­ything but in the end it’s mea­ningless sin­ce the com­pe­ti­ti­on is so limi­ted. This in no way rivals the PGA which has tra­di­ti­on and great­ness built into it regard­less what you think of PGA manage­ment. I wat­ched some but its just flat and not­hing new. No real moti­va­ti­on from the top play­ers in it sin­ce they are making mil­li­ons even if they play poorly.

    1. @Tom San­ger a cat for now….king of the jung­le in a few years…What about the NFL/NBA etc then!!!!! The­re is no going up or down in the leagues…so no worry of going down a division…there real com­pe­ti­ti­on is foot­ball (soc­cer to you)…in Euro­pe and the rest of the world…so GOES AGAINST YOUR ARGUMENT OF REAL COMPETITION!!!

    2. Also when do all the top play­ers play against each other in the PGA tour events….ONLY THE PLAYERS…your argu­ment is floored…again you only think anything out­side of the USA doesn’t count…so pre­su­me you are from the USA from your comments

    3. @John Mur­ray If this tour had any real dyna­mics it could be some­thing but ever­ything about it is tacky and mea­ningless. Other sports the­re is com­pe­ti­ti­on to get on the teams. A lot of peop­le don’t cut it. With this you have no names and even a cou­p­le ama­teurs. You can be 250th on the money list a sign over to this giving you an auto­ma­tic paycheck for less than medi­o­c­re per­for­mance. And the team names are chil­dish in order to make it sound exci­ting. Who cares who wins on this tour.

    4. @Tom San­ger just the beginning…do you real­ly think they would all jump ship to it strai­ght away…yes may­be dif­fe­rent and may­be tacky if you like…however let’s see how it plays out…they have had to pay big money just to get it started…NFL and NBA no up or down…so not real­ly a valid argument..over here we have leagues that you can go up or down unli­ke Ame­ri­can sports…Bryson,DJ,Michelson are just the beginning…if it fails in 3 years and mea­ningless then you are correct…it not YOU ARE WRONG

  16. Its an indi­vi­du­al choice. The avg PGA tour­na­ment is boring… most top play­ers dont play. Play whe­re ya want.. make alot of money… and enjoy life. That field in Lon­don… is pret­ty good. Real good. Nobo­dy cares about the phil­aN­THRO­PIC crap. Fans dont care.. nor do play­ers. Its about MONEy. Brand­le is sad.. becau­se he’s going to be com­men­ta­ting on no namers befo­re ya know it. Good for LIV… to com­pe­te against the cor­rupt PGA tour. Others will jump ship and break their back.. and make Jay and the PGA chan­ge their tune. Wait n see.

    1. Pret­ty much the PGA tour was crea­ted by Jack and a few other guys. Among its sup­por­ters are Tiger, Rory and other major play­ers. Do you real­ly think they are going to role over to Greg Nor­man? I mean really.

    2. @Preston Bac­chus All gre­at guys, and no one’s chal­len­ging their impact. But they don’t own the game its­elf. One thing I love about capi­ta­lism, com­pe­ti­ti­on. The fact that PGA has to actual­ly com­pe­te against ano­t­her league should only ser­ve the fans better.

    3. @Dave Is it real­ly com­pe­ti­ti­on when the 20th lar­gest natio­nal eco­no­my in the world with 31+ tril­li­on in assets shows up to buy out world golf?

  17. The PGA Tour has pro­ven it is not­hing short of THE MAFIA. Bran­del Cham­blee is part of the “Old School Pro­blem” in Golf.

    1. Ame­ri­ca its­elf does busi­ness with the Saudi’s, to the tune of about $40B. So yes, peop­le have been doing “both” for years. Next question.

    2. @Dave will you com­p­lain when they apo­lo­gi­ze to the Sau­dis ala nba to Chi­na or John Cena spea­king a for­eign lan­guage to do so?

    3. @Slimpickinsorl I could care less. I work for a For­tu­ne 500, mul­ti-con­glo­me­ra­te that does busi­ness with Chi­na. Very simi­lar to a lot of US cor­po­ra­ti­ons (pri­va­te­ly held or publicly tra­ded). I don’t refu­se my paychecks. No, I’m not out­side of Wal-Mart pro­tes­ting their busi­ness with Chi­na, nor am I in front of Bank of Ame­ri­ca, 3M, and the list goes on. I don’t hold PGA in con­tempt for having released play­ers to play in other Sau­di events. So no, I’m not inte­res­ted in pis­sing on 1099 con­trac­tors going to pick up a bag for them­sel­ves. I sug­gest they do what the other big boys do. Get the money, hand­le their business.

    4. @Dave I hear you. I care about the same but I’m just enter­tai­ned by what or who gets the outra­ge or the spin tre­at­ment. This topic is right up the­re with NIL for enter­tain­ment value. Stay well Dave !

  18. He can whi­ne all he wants and talk about their ran­kings but I don’t watch Golf like that and even I know Phil Mickel­son and Greg Nor­man. The Casu­al View­er does mat­ter and their Mono­po­ly is finis­hed. They bet­ter pray to god Tiger doesn’t go. Even if he’s a shell he is still the one of the big­gest names in Sports History.

    1. I think the LIV tour­na­ment sche­du­le was for­mu­la­ted with Tiger in mind 😊. And con­si­der, if Phil was paid 200 mil­li­on to sign and Dus­tin got 125 mil­li­on and Nick­laus was offe­red (and alle­ged­ly rejec­ted) 1 bil­li­on plus: ima­gi­ne how much they offe­red Tiger. And he has yet to come out with a defi­ni­ti­ve, strong pledge of undy­ing feal­ty to the pga eit­her. So I hope he give them the fin­ger and signs for 3 bil­li­on, and dou­bles his net worth. 🍻

  19. Most repre­hen­si­ble régime in the word? So much pro­pa­gan­da in the air, it’s like watching the MSM. When are you guys going to ack­now­ledge the $40B of tra­de we do with Sau­di Ara­bia every year. The fact busi­nes­ses all over the US do busi­ness with them, that we run gas in our cars from their oil, that every pre­si­dent meets with their King. What type of “washing” would you call it when you guys igno­re all of the facts, and just point out the ones that con­flict with the posi­ti­on of the PGA. Call it wha­te­ver you want, but fans could care less about the PGA or LIV. We’­re here to see play­ers, not tune in to see Bran­del Chamblee’s opi­ni­on. PGA does­n’t own golf, neit­her do Saudi’s. We’­re here for the sport.

  20. Bran­del Cham­blee is such a clown 🤡. he is trea­ting the­se pros like they have joi­ned The Nazi régime, when in rea­li­ty, they all just wan­ted to take a week off from the PGA, tee it up in a new for­mat and make some extra cash. PGA is the one that is pushing them out.

  21. Don’t gol­fers pick and choo­se which events they enter and which they don’t in their respec­ti­ve tours based on pri­ze money? Let’s not for­get golf is their job, and like most of us, work for a pay check.

  22. Lol…. If they wan­na play some­whe­re else then they can. It’s always the old guard who fear chan­ge. Nobo­dy owes anyo­ne anything. This is a SAD interview.

  23. “Sad day for golf” if you’­re the PGA tour. This who­le situa­ti­on is hypo­cri­ti­cal and the more peop­le try to stop LIV the more I cheer for it to succeed

  24. PGA bet­ter catch up with the times. I don’t like golf one bit but I find what’s going on today, a movie type sce­ne. LIV Golf vs PGA. LIV has bet­ter gra­phics (I seen a quick stream lol) don’t know anything about golf and I don’t care about golf but I know that PGA is sca­red becau­se of actu­al com­pe­ti­ti­on. Now if LIV gets a deal with Ama­zon or Apple then they will explo­de in view­ers­hip. May­be TBS or TNT is in order. Fox isn’t out of the picture.

  25. What hap­pen­ed to peop­le being able to do wha­te­ver they want? Isn’t that what we tell our child­ren, you can do and be anything you want! And nobo­dy has a moral ground to talk about anybody’s record on human rights, peri­od. Guess whe­re tho­se Nike’s you wear come from and that Apple pho­ne you got, etc.? Why not have a LIV and let LIV(pun inten­ded) view on this? Who cares whe­re Phil, D.J. etal are play­ing golf, why does it mat­ter. My guess is the PGA does­n’t like com­pe­ti­ti­on and will do what it takes to stomp out any org. that is try­ing to encroach on their mono­po­ly on the busi­ness of golf. What about free mar­ket values? I could go on and on with examp­les, but in the end, WHO CARES whe­re the­se guys tee it up!!

    1. The Euro­pean Tour lost many of their play­ers for the past several deca­des to the PGA Tour and for what? More money. The TOUR is just mad sin­ce now it’s hap­pe­ning to them.

    2. Play­ers signed con­tracts with the PGA. Just like in employ­ment you can’t work at one com­pa­ny and hold a 2nd job at a rival. Not ever­ything is free to do wha­te­ver you want.

  26. Let play­ers play whe­re ever they want. Let them choo­se. No need to ban them. If PGA TOUR is the best tour of all, why they need to punish play­ers who want to go and play some tour­na­ments elsewhere?

    1. I agree and if the PGA feels threa­tened release the play­ers for the year if reques­ted. This reminds me of the NFL/AFL dustup when I was a kid. One day we might see a super­golf­bowl win­ner of each head to head for 100 mil­li­on win­ner take all match

    2. @FCTe ya you need to get a clue lol. Pga being invol­ved with Chi­na is gre­at. Gre­at coun­try well known right.…. It’s a golf league lea­ve the non­sen­se out of it peop­le are sad

  27. Bran­del is wrong. Aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an. The asset which gol­fers have is the abi­li­ty to play golf. It is their right and free­dom to use their talent. The gol­fers do phil­an­thro­py with the money they earn, as they wish.

    1. @PIP2323 I’ve wat­ched golf for over fif­ty years. I saw more dif­fe­rence from 50 years ago to today than from watching Greg’s “I can come in last and still get paid” golf embarr­ass­ment today. A snooze-fest.

    2. @JW P you liter­al­ly are clu­eless then. The one thing ever­yo­ne tal­ked about was how dif­fe­rent the coverage and pro­duc­tion was. Their is no deba­te on that it was wild­ly dif­fe­rent then any pga tour coverage that has been done. It’s ok not to like it but to think it was anth­ring like a pga tour event is the dum­best thing I’ve heard. Obvio­suly your just trolling.

    3. @PIP2323 Give up the insults AH. I saw it with my own eyes and could care less what you and “ever­yo­ne “ saw. Talk about a troll. Bye.

    4. @JW P if your going to.make.uo stuff just give it up. It’s ok you hate the league that’s cool but it’s pro­duc­tion was liter­al­ly not­hing like the pga that’s about the only thing peop­le agree on except for you cap­tain troll. Go troll ano­t­her thread and make yourself look like a fool your good at it

  28. LIV Golf is the pre Cham­pions Tour for high brand, fal­ling skills gol­fers. That being said, the play­ers can do what they want.

  29. Loving LIV Golf as a fan. Stop appe­aling to fans about pro­tec­ting your assets from com­pe­ti­ti­on like the rest of the world has to. Will con­ti­nue to watch It espe­cial­ly if you keep cry­ing about it.

    1. @TheTerryE Exact­ly. What kind of field is that when McDo­well as a cap­tain of one of the teams when choo­sing his team­ma­tes after a cou­p­le big names said he never heard of the rest of them. I was sur­pri­sed at how boring it was on You­Tube that somehow had it aired.

    2. @TheTerryE Nobo­dy plays for any other rea­son than the money any­mo­re. And that is true for every pro ath­le­te in any sport. The­re is no “Lega­cy” on their mind just a payche­que. So if I can watch more golf (espe­cial­ly sin­ce any gol­fer on TV is bet­ter than you or I) I will, becau­se the PGA tour does­n’t care about you or me so I’ll watch when or what I want becau­se at the end of the day its entertainment.

    1. @Humfrey Col­lins it’s a golf trny peop­le acting like the­se play­ers are cri­mi­nals for play­ing golf it’s sad and pathe­tic. You rea­li­ze pga tour has a affi­lia­ti­on with pga tour chi­na right? How’s Chi­na for human rights far worse then Sau­di Ara­bia his­to­ri­cal­ly spea­king. It’s just pathe­tic and not worth tal­king about. More and more play­ers will join this league for obvious rea­sons much more play­er friend­ly shor­ter tents bet­ter pay. I hope it does well loo­ks like it will

  30. I’m the not big­gest fan of Bran­del Cham­blee. I agree with him on cer­tain things some­ti­mes, other times I can’t lis­ten to him. But this is the first time I agree with him com­ple­te­ly 100% about a topic in the game of golf. At the 6:00 mark, Bran­del says the­se play­ers are try­ing to grow the game, “They’­re des­troy­ing the game.” And this LIV Golf has des­troy­ed the game. It’s a fraud to the game of golf. I agree with you Brandel.

  31. This is just a HUGE blun­der by the PGA if they would have just given the­se guys the relea­ses the play­ers would have play­ed a cou­p­le of the­se tour­na­ments a year and it would go by the way­si­de after a few years.

    1. @TheBrindleBoxer It’s bad for the PGA tour if they are bar­ring play­ers who would other­wi­se con­ti­nue play­ing on the tour if only for OWGR points.

    2. @TheBrindleBoxer you have every right to your opi­ni­on and the free­dom to speak it, my only ques­ti­on, do you think it hel­ps or hurts your argu­ment when you call someo­ne a slimeball?

  32. Atro­cious real­ly I’m sor­ry but if it was that bad why the fuck isn’t ppl pro­tes­ting the fact that the US are allies to the Saudi’s I’m mean what are we tal­king about. Atro­cious is the United Sta­tes kil­ling hund­reds of thousands civi­li­ans in the Midd­le East on a bom­bing cam­pai­gn I don’t hear no one complaining.

  33. All the LIV play­ers are locked up by con­tract, they are “con­trac­ted”, not inde­pen­dent, and by con­tract they could not deci­de to pass on a cou­p­le of LIV events and play in some other tour­na­ment, you know, for the bene­fit of their fami­ly, or they would be sued.

  34. Sham­bles sounds bit­ter. I think he’s mis­sing the forest for the trees. They’­ve alrea­dy got more big names than I thought they would at LIV and could easi­ly have a few more by the sum­mer and cer­tain­ly next year. The PGA Tour needs to respond or risk losing a lar­ge num­ber of top & mid-tier players.

  35. I won­der if Japa­ne­se golf star Ryo Ishi­ka­wa has been given an offer to play in LIV golf, there’s three play­ers from the Japan tour so far play­ing at the cur­rent lon­don invi­ta­tio­nal, in fact one of them is a top Japa­ne­se play­er who ranks like 71 in the OWGR. I’m qui­te sure he has recei­ved an offer, perhaps he tur­ned it down. Ryo Is cur­r­ent­ly play­ing an event rn.

    1. @アイムバデ Ryo ishi­ka­wa could jus­ti­fy joi­ning LIV by say­ing that he’ll put 90% of his win­nings towards charity 😆

    2. @アイムバデ Hope he’ll score low in his third and final round and make a T10 he needs tho­se OWGR points to qua­li­fy for majors again. He’s cur­r­ent­ly T29 I think in the cur­rent event in Japan.

    3. @LRN_News yea hasn’t been too bad won twice I think in 2019, not­hing like what he used to be when he was still a teen tho

  36. What is fun­ny is I watch a ton of You­Tube ama­teur golf, and none of them are top 1000 gol­fers. I just enjoy watching golf.

    1. @Sean Ken­ne­dy exact­ly! I have wat­ched every play­er hit stin­kers as well as good shots. I just enjoy watching the game for sure

  37. This is a sad day for self righ­te­ous PGA employees… that’s why you see the­se geezers acting like the sport will die if the PGA can’t mono­po­li­ze golf.

  38. PGA is a mono­po­ly. Let’s have some com­pe­ti­ti­on. The view­ers and spon­sors will deci­de if the­re will par­al­lel league or only one will survive.

  39. Didn’t Tiger make like $116 mil play­ing golf? The rest of that wealth is from spon­sors. Rick Por­cel­lo in base­ball is 100th in the list in care­er ear­nings accord­ing to Base­ball­Re­fe­rence and has alrea­dy ear­ned $128 mil. He’s 33 and it’s Rick Porcello…

    1. Base­ball has 2916 games play­ed a year in the MLB. PGA has 48 events? MLB sta­di­ums hold 30+ thousand peop­le. Do the math. Money has to come from some­whe­re. Can’t just pump it out of the ground… oh wait.

    2. @Chase Blossom valid point. I agree with it. Still the best gol­fer in histo­ry has made less on field than Rick Por­cel­lo who pit­ches parts of games 32 times a year? I’m not say­ing the money from LIV tour is clean, but damn if they’re final­ly gon­na pay me (them) what other sports make..

    3. @Douglas Doo­len but Tiger was the rea­son pur­ses rose in the first place. What did Magic make during his ten­u­re with the Lakers while the NBA was on the rise? $39M is the ans­wer. Other sports just flat out have way more reve­nue. The PGA tour takes in 1.5B a year. The NBA gets 4B a year just from Chi­na TV rights.

  40. The LIV golf seri­es has actual­ly been a good watch and is free to watch. The only rea­son it is get­ting so much stick is becau­se media out­lets pay mil­li­ons to show the pga tour. This LIV for­mat is quicker and gre­at to watch. Just a shame it’s run by the Saudis

  41. 😅🤣😂… When the youn­ger play­ers rea­li­ze the appearan­ce fee and win­ners checks actual­ly clear, they’ll dis­card the pga like a spent con­dom. They will make more money by just signing with LIV, than they would in their ent­i­re pga career.

    PS, Cham­blee has always been a weak, simp. His sorr­yass would be with the LIV if they put 5 mil­li­on in front of him. By the way, that ‘petro’ coun­try is a ‘petro­dol­lar’in coun­try and one of the 🇺🇸’s top allies. And they don’t kill a frac­tion of the peop­le the usa kills in one day. 🍻

  42. The­se are inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors. Which enti­t­les them to play whe­re they choo­se. Is this as bad for golf as peop­le are making it out to be? I don’t think so. What have is an orga­niz­a­ti­on being chal­len­ged by ano­t­her orga­niz­a­ti­on. The PGA has a long histo­ry with many bene­fits to its mem­bers. It’s their respon­si­bi­li­ty to incre­a­se tho­se advan­ta­ges to com­pe­te with other orga­niz­a­ti­ons. This is a free mar­ket. Play­ers will ulti­mate­ly make a decisi­on on long term bene­fits offe­red by LIV or the PGA. It’s no dif­fe­rent then regu­lar peop­le cha­sing a bet­ter paying job. Now some peop­le lea­ve and then want to go back to their old job and it’s ulti­mate­ly the decisi­on of that employ­er if they want you back. And let me tell you if DJ is crus­hing it in LIV and then deci­des to come back to the PGA. The PGA will ulti­mate­ly weigh the mone­ta­ry bene­fits to brib­ing him back in terms of spon­sor­s­hips and view­ers, etc. This is an exci­ting time for golf which should push the PGA to offer grea­ter bene­fits to all its members!

    1. The PGA is a mem­bers­hip that has rules. I bet they are on good legal stan­ding for sus­pen­ding them. DJ does not move the need­le. Even Phil does­n’t move the need­le. The­re are no extra fans watching becau­se of Phil. Not so with Tiger. The­re is always a buzz with Tiger. Look at all the athlete’s who tweeted after Tiger won the Mas­ters. Tiger is gra­tetful that the . the PGA gave him the plat­form Phil not so much. 

      Look at Phil’s actions. He went out and worked with the Saudi’s to start a rival league. He had his lawy­ers do the legal work and then he deman­ded that he owns the video rights of his high­lights. No other orga­niz­a­ti­on let’s the ath­le­te own the high­lights. Not Bra­dy, MJ or LeBron.
      Then he pro­bab­ly recrui­ted other play­ers. If any employee did that they would be escor­ted out by security.

  43. Woke cul­tu­re, Pseu­do social jus­ti­ce princi­ples to make tho­se who don’t have or feel out­side of issu­es don’t adhe­re to rea­li­ty. Sau­di Arabia’s image being put to spe­cu­la­ti­on is hypo­cri­ti­cal con­si­de­ring on how Ame­ri­ca is view­ed world­wi­de. So stop PGA, lea­ve it alo­ne and let the­se guys get paid to do what they want. You should be asking this of our Poli­ti­ci­ans who crea­te poli­ci­es and can­not be honest to the Ame­ri­can people.

  44. I was­n’t inte­res­ted in the LIV tour until all the­se hypo­cri­ti­cal media out­lets tried to shut it down. I wat­ched it for free in You­Tube today. Good to watch. Over in a few hours thanks to shot­gun. Pga tour is only inte­res­ting for the major tour­na­ments. I don’t want to watch some ran­dom tour­na­ment full of ran­dom Ame­ri­cans for 8 hours a day

  45. If the PGA Tour is a bet­ter pro­duct than why are they acting like a spoil child. Sor­ry Bran­del Cham­blee but this is a gre­at day golf and the free market

  46. How do you deny indep con­trac­tors to play whe­re they want? PGA are THUGS and hypo­cri­tes! Without play­ers, PGA is not­hing. How many play­ers make good money vs NBA, NFL, MLB, etc? In golf, not many.

  47. The PGA is doomed !!
    They will cave in and wel­co­me the play­ers back befo­re long!
    The majors need the top play­ers in other­wi­se it’s just ano­t­her tournament !.

  48. It’s more than a bit hypo­cri­ti­cal for the PGA Tour to cri­ti­ci­ze guys for going after money. The PGA Tour is obvious­ly worried that the huge pur­ses they have can’t be sus­tai­ned long into the future. The­re was a huge jump in pur­ses, along with the popu­la­ri­ty of watching golf, when Tiger came along, and through his prime. When he first came up, the­re were tour­na­ments with a toal pur­se of $1 mil­li­on. Now, the winner’s share is well more than that in many, if not most tour­na­ments. The pro­blem is, watching golf is far less popu­lar than it was when Tiger was domi­na­ting, and even­tual­ly, that is going to have to be reflec­ted in tv rights fees. Now, the­re is a deep pocke­ted enti­ty that wants to invest in golf, but they won’t let Jay Mona­han be in char­ge. It will be inte­res­ting to see how this plays out.

    1. @Randy Richard­son Plea­se do the rese­arch , From goog­le: Do PGA gol­fers get appearan­ce money?
      It all comes down to gua­ran­te­ed cash. Euro­pean Tour events are allo­wed to pay appearan­ce fees which they almost comi­c­al­ly clas­si­fy as “pro­mo­tio­nal ser­vices fees.” PGA Tour events, on the other hand, are unab­le to pay “pro­mo­tio­nal ser­vices fees.”

  49. The Golf Chan­nel will con­ti­nue to speak bad about the Liv Tour, or for that fact, any tour that’s not the PGA. They all have jobs that they are afraid of loo­sing if they say one posi­ti­ve word about Liv. All the­se peop­le tal­king about lega­cy or your dedi­ca­ti­on to the PGA, are all the peop­le who would lea­ve the­re jobs in a heart­beat if they were offe­red much much more money. Stop with the yes men men­ta­li­ty and speak on truth. The Golf Chan­nel is tur­ning into CNN.

  50. Bran­del had one care­er win but now he’s an expert who is éli­te. We know he’s in the back pocket of the PGA Tour cau­se he is afraid of them. This guy is a Joke

  51. let’s make it clear here. it’s not a sad day for the game of golf. but it is a sad day for the pga tour. com­pe­ti­ti­on is always good for peop­le. not monopoly.

  52. Bran­del is a has been gol­fer, LIV golf is a gre­at new start for golf, basi­cal­ly an Ol” man’s sport which has been ener­gi­sed by an injec­tion of tes­to­sto­ro­ne. Fantastic!!!!!!!!!

  53. I wat­ched, it was gre­at, way more inte­res­ting with the team and indi­vi­du­al com­po­nent. Pga is in trou­ble now !

  54. Just wat­ched all of the new LIV Golf 1st round as live in the UK. Awe­so­me to see the­se play­ers here and tho­rough­ly enjoy­ed it. Not a clue what Cham­blee was ran­ting on about. He needs to get into ‘today’ and 2022 as well as a lot of other peop­le for that mat­ter. The PGA seems like a con­trol­ling dic­ta­tor­s­hip to me.

    1. Bank on my friend…your tel­ling me that the PGA tour have never been spon­so­red or taken money direct­ly or indi­rect­ly from the Sau­dis or whe­re­ver ….The PGA TOUR do have a mono­po­ly!!!!! It is fine when all the best Euro­pean gol­fers go to the PGA tour…wonder why that is….and for that dino­saur cham­blee what a ??????? Ques­ti­on for you Ame­ri­cans do any of you actual­ly lis­ten to cham­blee seriously…he is one hor­ren­dous golf analyst..every time I hear him I want to turn over

    2. While LIV Golf may not have the lions share of the best play­ers in the world at this time, the qua­li­ty of golf I saw today was bet­ter than the Korn Fer­ry and Cham­pions Tour and the play­ers geni­unely see­med to be enjoyig them­sel­ves out the­re and like the guys on the PGA Tour, still get upset when they hit bad shots and bad putts. Bran­del acts as though they’­re just the­re to get a check and not­hing more. I dis­agree and found the golf and nuan­ces of the broad­cast sur­pri­sin­gly good, as I expec­ted this first tour­na­ment to be a train wreck. I plan to con­ti­nue to watch with the under­stan­ding that the pro­duct is only going to get better.

  55. Disap­poin­ted in the PGA. They should not be threa­tening play­ers peri­od. It shows weak­ness and despe­ra­ti­on on their part. LIV tour­na­ments do not­hing more than add some varie­ty for the fans and finan­cial oppor­tu­nities for the play­ers. Making them make a choice bet­ween the two is wrong becau­se they are all free agents not owned by the PGA or anyo­ne else.

  56. Bran­del is butt hurt. 

    Talks about it as sports washing…ummm the US com­mit­ted worse atrocities.
    Afgha­ni­stan, Iraq, Guan­ta­na­mo Bay.

    As for the golf, 54 Holes, Shot Gun start, teams for­mat – makes for a nice chan­ge. Not to men­ti­on free to air.

    From the gol­fers per­spec­ti­ve, no cuts, gua­ran­te­ed pay, tra­vel reim­bur­sed – it’s a no brai­ner real­ly. We will see alot of the top younge play­ers be poa­ched out of col­le­ge, skip q school and Korn fer­ry for gua­ran­te­ed pay.

  57. “Sports­wa­shing” is being thrown around pret­ty free­ly, poin­ting to the Sau­di “human rights” vio­la­ti­ons. Who’s con­si­de­ring the 600,000 PLUS unborn babies being mur­de­red by abor­ti­on EVERY YEAR in the US? AND, the US brags about all the abor­ti­on mur­ders. At least, the Sau­dis are try­ing to make some­thing bet­ter of them­sel­ves SOMEWHERE.

  58. The PGA made a big mista­ke today. Should have taken the hig­her road. I for one real­ly enjoy­ed the LIV Golf coverage and for­mat. And look for­ward to inno­va­tions in golf coverage LIV Golf will bring in the future.

    1. I’m loo­king for­ward to some decent golf coverage that shows more than just a cou­p­le play­ers. And doesn’t have a huge pay­wall to stream decent coverage. I don’t need or want to see every shot but even the live pga coverage can be gar­ba­ge. I don’t have cable tv and it’s just not worth my time to try and watch any­mo­re. It’s 2022 let’s get some decent strea­ming in our sports. Or even a decent hi light reel

    2. @TheTerryE Do you remem­ber Jef­fe­ry Epstein? Our government has all kinds of stones. The PGA just threw that out the­re so they could get on the good side of the public opinion.

  59. as usu­al Bran­del says stuff to get clicks, rub­ber stamp the PGA, let the­se guys play some golf and dont be asses about it. PGA sucks

  60. This is the same as my full time employ­er sus­pen­ding me becau­se I deci­de to work at the wee­kend / work a 2nd job. PGA is wrong here.

    1. Wrong, it’s like you taking a second job then not showing up for the first without their per­mis­si­on becau­se you went to the second ins­tead on a Mon­day at 9am. You would­n’t get sus­pen­ded, you’d be fired for dit­ching work.

    2. I under­stand the ana­lo­gy you were try­ing to con­vey. Howe­ver, free­lan­ce and free agent work can’t be com­pa­red to a 9–5 job. The play­ers that left are sim­ply showing their desi­re for golf play­ers to pivot toward a free agen­cy type of work.

    3. @Fluriek Flu­riek Yes and the play­ers have pro­ven they can do that and the PGA has pro­ven that they are basi­cal­ly fired. Now it will go to court depen­ding on what the docu­ments the play­ers signed with the PGA state.

  61. Lis­tening to the golf Chan­nel along with the PGA com­mis­sio­ner make me want to see LIV Golf suc­ceed. They say it’s a sad day and that tells me it’s a very bad day for them. Get over your­sel­ves and let’s cele­bra­te the game of golf. Bunch of haters you all are.

    1. Agreed, the more this gets blas­ted all over the media and tra­shing the­se play­ers for going whe­re the money is makes me want to watch only the liv tour­na­ments and the majors. I’ve play­ed golf sin­ce I was 12 and am now 63, the only thing I watch on TV is golf. I’m done with anything PGA.
      Long Liv Liv.…..

    2. @kent cal­lies agreed they are so despe­ra­te to trash the league and call it irrele­vant as more.and more gol­fers are lea­ving. 5 solid us gol­fers have signed on for the second event per reports

    3. Yep, it’s Brandel’s job to pro­tect his employ­ers inte­rest, invest­ment and asso­cia­ti­on with the PGA Tour. Of cour­se he has not­hing good to say about LIV Golf and will do ever­ything wit­hin his power to trash it so he remains gain­ful­ly employ­ed with the Golf Channel.

    4. Bran­del is pro­bab­ly pis­sed they did­n’t come to him for a 40 to 70 per­cent pay incre­a­se. Let’s just keep the­re moral stan­dards in per­spec­ti­ve. I choo­se free­dom of choice. PGA needs to get their house in order. The com­mis­sio­ner is in way over his head. Damn I could do his job. Sheez

  62. All the arguing seems one sided. LiV peop­le arguing their case, PGA tour peop­le arguing their case. 

    I’d like to hear how many mil­li­ons pga tour has brought in, 

    I can remem­ber when we were threa­tened to get kicked out for having a cell pho­ne out to take a pic­tu­re at pga events. I can ima­gi­ne some tyran­ni­cal lan­guage going at the players. 

    But yes on the flip side, the­se mil­lion­aires act like they can’t sur­vi­ve and have to play golf till they are 65 other wise they are going to live in sec­tion 8 neighborhood

    1. @DanielSong39 nooooo they can hand­le a human being hol­ding a cell pho­ne at their chest the same as one stan­ding the­re hol­ding a drink.

  63. Bla­the­ring Cham­blee says Phil is was­hed up yet he just won the PGA. Says the Sau­dis are bad becau­se they alle­ged­ly kil­led a repor­ter. I have 2 words for Cham­blee, Hiro­shi­ma, and Nagasaki.

    1. @Tom San­ger Not about that Tom. Cham­blee acts like SA is the only one to com­mit atro­ci­ties. And tho­se peop­le we bom­bed were citi­zens, not soldiers.

  64. Cham­blee is the big­gest gar­ba­ge guy out the­re. “We’re watching sports watching”. 😂😂 nahhh, I wat­ched a fas­ter bet­ter golf tour­na­ment whe­re I wasn’t bored at all..

    Y’all just sca­red shit­less of what’s com­ing. Y’all think PGA tour was going con­ti­nue in its monopoly? 😂

  65. Hey Cham­blee it’s their first event and you sta­te that 14 out of 48 were top level. Wait until the 4th event. Media are so delu­si­onnal. And also they switch their point of view in a heart­beat, so give me a break, we as fans loved it today.

    1. Bang on…why is that joker even on TV….his sta­ti­on pays lots and lots of money for the PGA tour coverage so he is COMPLETELY BIAS…of cour­se he is going to slag it off

  66. NBC golf is a joke, only thing they say is nega­ti­ve about LIV and announ­cers call it Sau­di league, Cham­blee is a joke, cal­ling it a sad day, No it’s bet­ter oppor­tu­ni­ty for the play­ers, if this league star­ted when Cham­blee star­ted and they asked him to join, he would have dove in head first. PGA & NBC golf is sca­red of the LIV, that’s it. Phil Michel­son is get­ting $200 Mil. That just chan­ged earnings.
    Cham­blee is cor­rect, when he said Gol­fers are inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors, that’s right.
    They are independent.

  67. 100,000 view­ers live on You­Tube for LIV , the­re chan­nel star­ted yes­ter­day and has 50,000 fol­lo­wers in one day …

  68. Bramble, I have enjoy­ed your com­men­ta­ry over the years, but you have sad­ly suc­cum­bed to the new order of bla­ming and shaming and can­cel­ling , wake up bro­ther, move with times man, come on! You are abusing your plat­form here and thro­wing poli­tics into this gre­at new golf tour­na­ment. Your fel­low Ame­ri­cans do busi­ness with Sau­di, FI racing is in Sau­di, come on whe­re is your logic.
    You are fil­led with fear and it is showing. This is gre­at for golf and fans.

  69. Sad day for PGA. They think they own peop­le. They unleas­hed pro­pa­gan­da but it’s not going to work. PGA is not about phil­an­thro­py, this lying bas­tard. The rea­son gol­fers make more money is becau­se it is indi­vi­du­al sport and the care­ers last lon­ger, on average gol­fers make less money than base­ball or other major sports

  70. If the pga had trea­ted their play­ers well enough, they wouldn’t be loo­king to sign with LIV. Simp­le as that.

    1. the hell are you tal­king about? The PGA could have trea­ted their play­ers like kings but if you throw mil­li­ons of dol­lars are peop­le, it does­n’t mat­ter. Peop­le will reach for the money. Did you even lis­ten to Bran­del? 3 out of the 4 richest ath­le­tes of all time from from the PGA TOUR. Tiger, Jack, Arnie. Phil had made more money with the PGA Tour than David Beck­ham who was in a sport far more popu­lar than golf. PGA tour did a gre­at job and will con­ti­nue to do a gre­at job.

    2. @J Hol­den with a litt­le deduc­ti­ve rea­so­ning it’s easy to under­stand that it’s a cop out argu­ment to say that the care­er ear­nings of tiger, jack, Arnie, etc is reflec­ti­ve of the com­pen­sa­ti­on of pga tour play­ers as a who­le. Just like Lebron didn’t beco­me a bil­lion­aire sole­ly from his nba sala­ry. LIV golf wouldn’t have been as appe­aling of a tran­si­ti­on if the PGA gave its play­ers the free­dom to be more selec­ti­ve with their par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on. And of cour­se, add that free­dom to a lar­ger paycheck, you can’t bla­me play­ers for fin­ding it appealing.

    3. It’s true, as a PGA pro­fes­sio­nal, the working con­di­ti­ons are bru­tal. Get­ting paid mil­li­ons to do what we pay thousands for, on cour­ses we aren’t allo­wed on. All equip­ment paid with endorsements.
      If the­se aren’t human rights vio­la­ti­ons, what are??

  71. Lmao Bran­del could you be any more hyper­bo­lic? ffs…atrocities…give your head a shake. You talk about Nor­man like he’s a war cri­mi­nal. Try and main­tain at least a shred of credibility!

    1. @PIP2323 The shot­gun start was a fan­tastic move. Get all the play­ers on the cour­se at the same time so you always have a shot to show. Only real­ly pos­si­ble with a small field like they have this week, but if this is the model going for­ward, I think it has a lot of potential.

    2. @I Am Mars I don’t see them adding many more play­ers I like this for­mat. alt­hough I think alot more will want to join in so may­be they would add a few more

    3. @PIP2323 Would pro­bab­ly depend on the natu­re of their con­tracts with some of the lower ran­ked play­ers. Tho­se guys are expen­da­ble if it means get­ting a big­ger name. Will see if they expand the field when Bry­son plays in the next event or if they keep the same size but drop some guys.

    4. @I Am Mars they are not expec­ted to expand the field size per reports for the next event but if more guy join other then Bry­son p reed and Fow­ler I think they would up it a bit. But part of their con­cept is smal­ler fiel­ds so I don’t see it going over say 60 or so may­be add 12 spots and 3 teams or something

  72. You­Tube had about 100k view­ers today, and most of tho­se were just curious and pro­bab­ly won’t fol­low the seri­es. 100k for a world wide event? Good luck LIV, you’­re going to need it

    1. It was sup­po­sed to be a big dyna­mic event but ins­tead it was lack lus­ter with so so com­men­ta­ry with a field of who cares who wins.

  73. this video makes me sad. this guy is a dick. its a gre­at day for golf. PGA just dont want com­pe­ti­ti­on. dp world tour isnt a thre­at so they dont care. this is so they making out the­se guys are evil hor­ri­ble peop­le for try­ing some­thing new and fun and pays bet­ter for less work. love to see him get paid dou­ble for half the workload in his job and turn it down lol

  74. I stop watching pga tour, like the lpga much bet­ter, after watching the 1st LIV 54 round, the pga is in big trou­ble ! Almost like gt endu­ran­ce racing with more than one race/ tour­na­ment going on at the same time ! The gre­at young col­la­ge gol­fers will run to play in the LIV. tour­na­ment. Plus I did­n’t have to watch one woke com­mer­cial try­ing to indoc­tri­na­te my kids and myself !

  75. What is the average age of the brad­coas­ters who are now expres­sing their opi­ni­ons? Not real­ly a rea­listic repre­sen­ta­ti­on of dif­fe­rent ages and demo­gra­phics. And defi­ni­te­ly not my opi­ni­on on this mat­ter. I’d rather watch cha­rac­ters like Phil, DJ and Ser­gio who make the game fun, on and off the cour­se. Not going to watch anything from the RBC but will watch LIV

  76. This repre­hen­si­ble régime is an offi­cial ally of the USA though. USA gua­ran­tees this aut­ho­ri­ta­ri­an régime’s secu­ri­ty in return for oil. Regu­lar and pro­fi­ta­ble cus­to­mer for the US arms indus­try. Pret­ty sure this régime ope­ra­tes a pret­ty lar­ge poli­ti­cal lob­by in Con­gress. Let’s not for­get their finan­cial invest­ments in major cor­po­ra­te sec­tors on Wall Street. Poli­ti­cal washing? Oil washing? Wall Street washing? And you are dum­ping on pro­fes­sio­nal golfers???

  77. The golf chan­nel con­ti­nues to embarr­ass them­sel­ves the more they talk about liv….Chamblee is gon­na sit the­re and talk about the average rank of guys going to play for them as if the­re bums…why is the golf chan­nel and pga so worried about it then?? I laug­hed so hard when he said paying the play­ers is gon­na cut into the phil­an­thro­pic money as if the pga doesn’t have enough money

    1. @Humfrey Col­lins Would you say Jes­se Owens was not a moral per­son becau­se he com­pe­ted in events hos­ted by Ger­ma­ny? Are you arguing that he was legi­ti­mi­zing the régime that hap­pen­ed to be in power at the time? I don’t think any rea­son­ab­le per­son thinks that an ath­le­te com­pe­ting in a nation’s league/tournament/event is an endor­se­ment of every sin­gle action taken by the government of that nation.

  78. PGA Tour has had it too good, for too long. The world is all about money. TBH, nobo­dy gives a rats arse whe­re it comes from. Hats off to you if you have the scru­ples to say no but if it was offe­red to me, I’d rip their hand off and spunk it up the wall on hoo­kers and strawberries!

  79. The PGA is just pro­tec­ting the guys who are stay­ing exclu­si­ve­ly on the tour, which is understandable.
    Just ima­gi­ne the outra­ge from PGA play­ers if the LIV play­ers (DJ, etc) were allo­wed to also play wha­te­ver PGA events they wanted.

  80. more hating from Bran­del, PGA Tour mes­sed up big time, it was super enjoya­ble to watch first round of LIV Golf TOURNAMENT

  81. Just a though, NBA paid play­ers to show up on the game and sit on the bench (not play­ing the who­le game) some time the ent­i­re sea­son (as a bench play­er) ver­sus PGA play­ers (bey­ond top 100 ran­king with tour card) paid for them­sel­ves to show up to the tour­na­ment not even sure they are going to make any money at all if they miss the cut and poten­ti­al loss their own money for cad­die fee, etc and com­ing back home to face his/her fami­ly with less money in their bank account. PGA paid their tops play­er well but what about the rest (40%) of the fiel­ds who car­ry the tour card… LIV make that chan­ge, if you show up you make money, if you win you win big bonus…you are going to see a lots of bey­ond top 100 having a break thru, when they dont have to worry about fee­ding their fami­ly, they will play more free, try to make more bir­dies and the give will be more exci­ting for ever­yo­ne… Just a though.…

    1. If you can’t hack the main tour the­re are les­ser tours to play in or beco­me a tea­ching pro or a club pro. Its always been good for play­ers to have to put their skills on the line to make the cuts. LIV Tour is par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on tro­phies just like for woke schools.

    2. @Rare Dance Clas­sics sure„ but how much the non top 100 get for spon­sors per year?? Enough to break even?? All I am say is PGA always have room to make it bet­ter for the rest of non top 100 play­ers.. they are not doing jack.. until now.. i bet..

    3. @Tom San­ge­rI am tal­king about the rest of 40% that hol­ding the PGA card ver­sus miss cut no pay poli­cy. Why PGA can not pay the tour play­ers pri­ze money even if they mis­sing the cut?? (Miss cut play­ers tried to play for their best for 2 days) and Win­ner pri­ze seem to incre­a­se every year. l know about the les­ser tours (how its even worst for tho­se play­ers ver­sus the $) and same tre­at­ment with most tea­ching pro and club pro around the coun­try (which lots can be improved).

    4. @Michael Fong But why can they paid the miss cut play­er?? Miss cut still put their work into it. That is why LIV have the upper hand and PGA act the way they are.… The non pro­fit deal needs to go away for the good of the game and the play­ers. To gro­wing the game its needs to be like NFL, NBA, Pri­mer league, etc…

  82. Just sounds like hate, not the best? Who is watching that they couldn’t beat? Still bet­ter than any view­ers watching. Good golf is below par, pret­ty sure that’s what a lot of the field will shoot.

  83. If the PGA was tru­ly the pin­na­cle and took gre­at care of their play­ers, the only play­ers they would lose would be guys who weren’t making cuts and making money. DJ, Phil, Bry­son, Ser­gio, and the others did­n’t ruin their repu­ta­ti­ons. I have more respect for them for bran­ching out and stan­ding up to the mono­po­ly. If the PGA and their sup­por­ters are so con­cer­ned with atro­ci­ties and human rights vio­la­ti­ons, they’ll quit gas­sing up their cars, heli­co­p­ters, and pla­nes. They’ll quit having their merch and their gear made in Chi­na. That is a very hypo­cri­ti­cal statement.

  84. We all Knew Golf was an old boys club sport but wow aren’t they showing their true colors as free­dom hating wan­na­be mon­archs. Lol

  85. This guy sounds like a bad sales­man, bad mout­hing the com­pe­ti­ti­on ins­tead of taking on the chal­len­ge. Why does the PGA then take money from Chi­na? This guy has no clue what morals are. And how dare he judge the decisi­ons of the­se play­ers? Is someo­ne like Lou­is’ foun­da­ti­on not phil­an­thro­pic then? Screw this guy, in his lavish home pro­bab­ly dri­ving a Bent­ley, now being threa­tened by actu­al innovation!

  86. They would have paid 1 bil­li­on for a 46 year old lim­ping past his prime tiger woods, with all respect to the goat. If that hap­pen­ed Bran­do would be crap­ping his pants. And the broad­cast for Liv golf would smash PGA tour ratings.

    1. @Michael Fong just give it time, ever­y­bo­dy has a price..if u want com­pe­ti­ti­ve golf tiger is the last guy u want. It’s not about top 10 play­ers, its about who moves the need­le like Phil who draws 10 times more than Scot­tie scheff­ler and will for years.

  87. There’s not­hing sad about this. Its frickin awe­so­me. Plus its strea­med on You­Tube for ever­yo­ne to watch. That’s amazing.

    1. @rocklar3 it was a com­ple­te­ly dif­fe­rent viewing expe­ri­ence much fas­ter paced and more expo­sure to the play­ers. Gre­at start

    2. The best golf is in the pga tour end of sto­ry. LIV golf will die a death its pure money greed and not good for the game at all.

    3. @Philip Moo­re “The best” in your opi­ni­on. I’m not here to deba­te that but I am here to say that LIV is exci­ting becau­se its strea­med on You­Tube. So, essen­ti­al­ly free to watch. Plus its a much nee­ded over­haul for the game. That’s my opi­ni­on. LIV appears to be taking away the “pom­pous” from golf and making it fun for ever­yo­ne. Becau­se if Tiger is not win­ning then it’s just not exci­ting for me.

    4. @Philip Moo­re ya keep thin­king that bud­dy. Next event going to big­ger yet with 5 solid names set to join. This league isn’t going any­whe­re very good news for the fans. The pro­duc­tion and coverage was awe­so­me much fas­ter paced then anything pga tour could offer. I’m glad it’s off to a gre­at start

  88. Bran­del Cham­blee is a bit­ter never has been. I wat­ched the golf and it was good golf. They are not hig­hest paid by the sport it was more from his endor­se­ments. Bran­del could not com­pe­te on tour when he was a pro and Phil won a major last yr.

  89. This guy is so upset becau­se Liv jeo­par­di­zes his job as a slee­py golf repor­ter for pga. I honest­ly don’t see any hig­her moral on this per­son than on Phil.

    1. I am awa­ke by this guy’s com­ment, appar­ent­ly he is not slee­ping nor slee­py. This tour is rewar­ded by blood money. I hope ever­yo­ne is awa­ke by now. 

      Golf is an hono­r­able game. When you get paid upfront to play and no points are ear­ned, why would a hono­r­able play­er par­ti­ci­pa­te other than “greed” – or, as DJ put it, “I got­ta do the best for my family. ”

    2. Bran­del does­n’t work for the PGA Tour, he works for the Golf Chan­nel, who are free to talk about any golf event on any tour. Don’t think is job is in too much jeopardy.

  90. Brand­le look at the dates of the arti­cles you refe­rence when it refers to hig­hest paid play­ers. the fact you did­n’t even say lebron des­troys ever­ything you say. Pay someo­ne else to do your rese­arch. The argu­ment that the Liv play­ers are was­hed up and not young and won’t grow the game also app­lys to the money list. Richest gol­fers are Tige woods, Phil Mickel­son, Jack Nick­le­son, Arnold Pal­mer and Greg Norman…all play­ers that took a life time to make that money bes­i­des Tiger and Phil can thank him for being on the list any­way. The world is expen­si­ve. Every government and sports league does busi­ness not ever­yo­ne will like…but as the play­er you choo­se what you want and I don’t think that’s an issue.

  91. May­be the gol­fers just don’t want to be told what they can and can’t do – plain and simp­le. And don’t talk to me about sports washing with basi­cal­ly every major sports league in the world having ties to Chi­na. Have you seen the atro­ci­ties they’ve com­mit­ted against the Uyghurs? Ever­yo­ne loo­ks the other way. The only rea­son this is such a big deal for the PGA is becau­se their mono­po­ly is being threa­tened. Car­ry on.

  92. Wat­ched some of first round on You­Tube, it was pret­ty awe­so­me. I will be in the gal­le­ry for the next event in Port­land. Can’t wait. I get the impres­si­on that the PGA tour and the hypo­cri­tes online are a bit salty. 😂😂😂

    1. @Winston Smith Exact­ly! Could­n’t agree more. Our socie­ty in gene­ral is a spe­cial bunch. They make it sound like the­se guys are gol­fing for the exact peop­le that kil­led the jour­na­list. Could­n’t be the fur­thest thing from the truth, but you know our media… 😉

  93. This dude sounds sca­red… Its a sin­gle play­er game, they should be able to play tour­ney when and whe­re they want… PGA just wants con­trol. Pret­ty sad actual­ly. I hope the USGA con­ti­nues to accept the­se players.

  94. I wat­ched the First round of Liv Golf and it was real­ly fun see­ing the play­ers have a shot gun start and see­ing the team aspect of it. I think the youn­ger play­ers are not jum­ping strai­ght over becau­se they want to see if Liv will work. In a few years if Liv is still going I think more youn­ger play­ers will be going over there.

    1. @MaDMAn 50 ya peop­le are clu­eless about this league. It’s only going to get big­ger. 5 more u.s. names are set to join next event

  95. This is the best day in golf, sin­ce Tiger won the masters.
    They are TRULY gro­wing the game, unli­ke the segre­ga­ted PGA tour.
    Liv is paying the play­ers what they deser­ve, the PGA is NOT
    PGA is losing its mono­po­ly and its house of cards is about to crumble.……What a gre­at day for golf!!!
    soli­di­fied my opi­ni­on of this idi­ot Brand­le Chum­plee as well. He is a clown. Dum­my, PHIL just won a MAJOR last year you imbe­ci­le. DJ is still in his prime, just wait until more play­ers wise up and start jum­ping ship to take care of their families.

    GO LIV GOLF!!!!!!!

    wan­na talk war cri­mes and human right vio­la­ti­ons by the USA, lets have that con­ver­sa­ti­on. Nike is a mas­si­ve spon­sor of the tour, let us talk about OBAMA and his dro­ne strikes, BUSH with his war crimes.…..such a pile of HYPOCRITES in the USA

  96. Tho­se dol­lars aren’t money made on the PGA tour that is spon­so­ring dol­lars. That doesn’t count they are going for big­ger pay days. Let them earn their money for working less days. We all would do that if we the opportunity.

  97. The pga and asso­cia­ted tours are basi­cal­ly a car­tel. The com­mis­sio­ner has a com­ple­te lack of visi­on. Greg Nor­man on the other hand has an open mind and has reached out to the PGA com­mis­sio­ner, he took his ball and went home. Sad

  98. Booooo. Bran­del is pis­sing his brit­ches becau­se this means less eye­balls on him and his dra­ma­tic intel­lec­tu­al act. No one cares about Bran­del or his tro­phy wife. LIV is here to stay old man!

  99. The PGA Tour has just about as much blood on their hands as the next orga­niz­a­ti­on. I don’t see why play­ers have to get lam­bas­ted for their decisi­ons when mono­po­listic orgs are never held accountable.

    1. accept for all the cha­ri­ty they have done over the years, may­be that should have bought oil fiel­ds ins­tead of dona­ted to charity?

    2. @J Hol­den how’s pga tour Chi­na? I hear chi­na is gre­at for human right and just a gre­at coun­try. Yet the pga it ties to them and yet they have a pro­blem with this league. Sad and pathetic

  100. Love the LIV pre­mi­se. I could list all the posi­ti­ves, even play­ing field, more play­er inclu­si­on, free agents, money, etc. The PGA is showing the cor­po­ra­te power con­trol­lers first hand. They have shown their colors for years. Now they are threa­tened. Watch how dir­ty they will get. I have sel­dom seen a cor­po­ra­ti­on con­cer­ned about they’­re employees. It’s always the bot­tom line, they will kick you to the curb in a nano­se­cond just as we are seeing.

    The peop­le sup­por­ting the PGA are yes peop­le and pro­tec­ting their own inte­rests. The­re is room for all.

  101. When casu­al fans think of the PGA they think of top tier play­ers. Up and com­ing gol­fers who miss a cut lose money. Ima­gi­ne if NBA, MLB, NFL play­ers made zero if their team did­n’t make the play­offs, or they did­n’t bat over .200, etc. LIV is cor­rec­ting some things that should have been imple­men­ted by the PGA long ago.

    1. @Tom San­ger I agree with a lot of what you say. Golf being a meri­to­cra­cy makes it gre­at. The PGA was pret­ty much a mono­po­ly. Now they have com­pe­ti­ti­on. A play­er still has to be out­stan­ding to qua­li­fy for PGA or LIV. Some play­ers choo­se to get paid for count­less hours they alrea­dy put in. I can’t bla­me them for that. As for the who­le blood money argu­ment (not say­ing you said that) most of us are com­mu­ni­ca­ting on tech that is made in Chi­ne­se sweat shops, so that point to me is moot.

    2. @Chris1234 Play­ers don’t have to be out­stan­ding at all to play on the LIV as the field show­ed. As far as us buy­ing Chi­ne­se sweat shop goods the point is not that Sau­di Ara­bia is evil among the good, its that they are using sports at a loss of mil­li­ons to put a hap­py face on the cor­rup­ti­on of their régime. It is true that the cur­rent régime is beco­m­ing more pro­gres­si­ve with women’s rights as an examp­le but that can chan­ge in a heart beat with new régime leadership.

    3. @Chris1234 When you look into Black­rock, the Gre­at Reset & the World Eco­no­mic Forum you can get a hint whe­re this is all going and its going quickly.

  102. Bran­del once again shows that he does­n’t “get it.” Liv golf in its cur­rent sta­te is clo­ser to the various matches being play­ed by cele­bri­ties than a PGA Tour event. That’s the point. It’s about golf as enter­tain­ment. Bran­del acts like Phil and DJ don’t move the need­le in golf. The PGA Tour them­sel­ves ack­now­ledge Phil as the 2nd most influ­en­ti­al play­er in golf over the past year with their own PIP ran­kings. DJ was 7th. 

    Bran­del has to act outra­ged here, but he coul­d’­ve come up with some bet­ter arguments.

    1. I wat­ched for five minu­tes and tur­ned it off. Ter­ri­ble pro­duct. I get to watch exhi­bi­ti­on golf every time I play…I don’t need to was­te my time watching others play it.

    2. Exact­ly!! I will enjoy and be enter­tai­ning to see­ing Liv play­er making a putt for 4 mil­li­ons and the teams hacking for lar­gest pri­ze money ever!! And May­be see the­se young kids from all over the world make life chan­ge putt. Also, going to won­der what’s Tiger, Rory and Tho­mas fee­ling afterwards….

  103. All the­se old timers are mad becau­se they couldn’t make the kind of money play­ers will make on the LIV tour when they were young and able.

  104. why is that joker even on TV..the worst ana­lyst by a coun­try mile….his sta­ti­on pays lots and lots of money for the PGA tour coverage so he is COMPLETELY BIAS…of cour­se he is going to slag it off

  105. I real­ly enjoy­ed the LIV strea­ming on You­Tube. I had it play­ing in the back­ground on my com­pu­ter while I worked. Star­ted it at 8:00 am (local) and was done right about the time lunch came around. Brillant!!

    I guess I would make the intro a litt­le less “nas­car-ish” but other­wi­se I lik­ed the for­mat, onscreen sco­ring and the announ­cer staff was knowledgeable. 

    And serious­ly, if you are lis­tening to and belie­ving that block­head Cham­blee talk about golf, you need to get out a bit more. I’ve been gol­fing for 53 years, attend a cou­p­le PGA events each year, and that goof­ball always says some­thing that is try­ing to “wax nost­al­gic”, but comes out as PGA diarrhea.

    So the­re.

    Hoser

  106. Bran­del, often right, dead wrong here. No way are you coun­ting Jack’s Tour win­nings as the bulk of his wealth. It’s not. Same with Jor­dan. The bulk of their money came from their busi­nes­ses, not their leagues. It’s tru­ly a sad day for golf. Gol­fers stop­ped sup­por­ting each other over whe­re they play. Bot­tom line, money. Exact­ly the same for the PGA. They’re upset about losing money for the­se “old” players.

    1. All tho­se play­ers he men­tio­ned made their money off of the name they made from sports . get it. This is not a hard concept.

    2. @Insulator U All tho­se play­ers he men­tio­ned made their money off of the name they made from sports . get it. This is not a hard concept.

    3. @Michael Fong It seems to be a hard con­cept for you, Sport. Read your own com­ment. The peop­le he men­tio­ned were not enri­ched by their leagues, but by their indi­vi­du­al skills. Enri­ched by their busi­ness invest­ments, not by a sports league. God, No Child Left Behind was a disaster. 🙄

  107. Got­ta start some­whe­re, sounds likea a litt­le jea­l­ous big­got that sits in a booth a jud­ges bet­ter gol­fers than him 4 days a week. You sound like the pga tour is deep in your pocket brand­le, to say its not about busi­ness is ridi­cu­lous. Hope­ful­ly every check you ever cas­hed came from someo­ne with a per­fect record and a righ­te­ous place in its entirety

  108. I can see both sides. Free­dom to play whe­re and when i cho­se is cool. Golf is a busi­ness. Oil is a huge busi­ness. Its ok for Ame­ri­ca to buy Sau­di oil but not their golf is hypo­crti­cal. Oil money is paying the­se golfers.

    1. Why not use Chi­na and the NBA? Was it worth it to sell their pro­duct to a coun­try like that? Have your
      League asso­cia­ted with that coun­try? At this point it’s extre­me­ly hypo­cri­ti­cal to be mad at this but not at that.

    2. @Klendiferious Sho­lo­mo­baum – The NBA was a John­ny-Come-Late­ly to Chi­na. Ame­ri­can Cor­po­ra­ti­ons had been in Chi­na for Deca­des prior…hell, Dick Nixon even took time off from his domestic cri­mi­na­li­ty to visit Chi­na on their behalf in 1972.

  109. Bran­dal Cham­blee puts out ano­t­her pre­dic­ta­ble, irrele­vant dia­tri­be about things he doesn’t real­ly care about (“sports washing”) in ser­vice to mas­ters. Good boy! Have a treat.

  110. An Ame­ri­can not the advo­ca­ting the free­dom of the indi­vi­du­al gai­ning con­trol of their own desti­ny is a nega­ti­ve thing…. It’s laug­ha­ble. It’s one for the histo­ry books.

    The play­ers should be able to own their own media rights. You talk about greed is even more hil­la­rious. You are a shill for the pga

    You sir are envious. You should be advo­ca­ting this. The PGA needs to com­pe­te other­wi­se it will beco­me a dinosaur. 

    Sick of you Ame­ri­cans. Hypocrites.

    I love this idea and the free mar­ket play­ing it’s part. 

    I’m loving LIV golf.

  111. It’s amu­sing watching Bran­del Cham­blee pre­tend to be an objec­ti­ve golf ana­lyst and/or jour­na­list here. He is, in fact, acting as a flack and a shill for the PGA. He’s try­ing to redu­ce any objec­ti­ve ana­ly­sis of the PGA and the LIV into some sort of good vs evil deba­te. That is chil­dish, irrele­vant, unpro­fes­sio­nal and mis­ses the point. Grow up, Brandel.

  112. PGA Tour plays with mono­po­ly money too. All of the­se guys are mil­lion­aires and they play a game for a living. Most peop­le think this is out of touch non­sen­se regard­less of what this guy gri­pes about.

  113. It’s a gre­at day. Shut up and get over it. The PGA let­ter was not­hing more than a tyrant let­ter. You are just mad becau­se you can’t con­trol them. They are adults and can make their own choices. Watching you guys cry is hil­arious. Just like watching insa­ne demon­crats. LMAO

  114. Bone­saws and bogeys.…talk about nee­ding to sho­wer off around your round. Ewww, this kind of sli­me is kind of hard to wash off.

  115. His comments should be direc­ted towards play­ers try­ing to deci­de if they want to join LIV or not. For us the fans we are just pum­ped to be able to watch more golf!

    1. Lol.… may­be you wan­na watch a wate­red down tour­na­ment in Lon­don… but appar­ent­ly with more then 60% of the tickets still avail­ab­le to the tour­na­ment the­re ain’t a who­le lot.

    2. @Lake Ozark REILets just see how it goes. Just a side note out­side of the majors you can go online and buy tickets to every golf event com­ing up on the PGA tour so I would­n’t use that as a bar to measure .

  116. Shut up old man! We get it, you need to keep your job so you’­re taking the PGA side. Someone’s a litt­le jea­l­ous it sounds like it

    1. Do you think all the sports are mono­po­lies? Would you be cool if the Saudi’s finan­ced a rival foot­ball league? Remem­ber this is the Sau­di government?

  117. Free­dom of choice. I would­n’t sup­port LIV if the PGA had­n’t acted so dis­grace­ful­ly. I’m kind of sick of the corporatocracy.

    1. “Liv is chan­ging things up, the­re­fo­re it’s inte­res­ting. PGA is so stuck in their ways. Plus capi­ta­lism is working!” I hear the­se per­spec­ti­ves the past 100+ hours. It made sen­se to lots of peop­le becau­se we embrace the­se qua­li­ties in Ame­ri­ca, tho­se are good qua­li­ties – chan­ging things up, capi­ta­lism works,etc.

      But is Liv tru­ly repre­sen­ting the­se good qua­li­ties that we are pro­jec­ting over it? Is “get­ting paid upfront to com­pe­te” a good value that we want to tell the kids at First Tee? Or, we say this to our kids, “you work hard to get bet­ter with your game that you love, money will come. Also lear­ning eti­quet­te along the way so you grow into an use­ful and hono­r­able man/women.” PGA is repre­sen­ting the­se values through its pro­fes­sio­nal work and cha­ri­ty work. PGA ampli­fy the­se good value who shaped modern golf.

    2. @Karenberries I’m 1000% sure that the­se pro­fes­sio­nal ath­le­tes will par­ta­ke in cha­ri­ty work and hold high values out­side the LIV Events. They are still the same peop­le they have always been. Money up front with a pri­ze to be won vs ear­ning your ent­i­re­ty as a pri­ze is no dif­fe­rent. You should still tell your kids to get their heads out their asses and work hard to make some­thing of them­sel­ves becau­se we sure as shit ain’t get­ting $150m to play in the events. You have to be good to be paid and they paid their dues and got gre­at befo­re collec­ting that pay che­que. LIV is still ear­ly so you won’t see every top name jum­ping ship for the first ever event. It will deve­lop as will the future play­ers and you will see the gre­at com­pe­ti­ti­on on both sides. Every sports league has expan­si­on teams and you can­not argue that it mud­dies the waters. Tho­se ath­le­tes com­pe­te just as well as ever­yo­ne else becau­se the­re is such a minis­cu­le dif­fe­rence bet­ween the best on the lea­der­board vs the last. Espe­cial­ly in golf, I haven’t seen one per­son as domi­nant as Tiger sin­ce his fall and that was a many years ago. One gol­fer will take the pri­ze in one event and then place 10th at the next one a wee­kend after. Working hard and being a good per­son should­n’t be a hard thing to do out­side the game, but, you got big­ger pro­blems if it is for you.

    3. @Chris The PGA Tour has worked tireless­ly to throw money at play­ers to lure the best talent in the world to the PGA Tour…pretty much what the LIV group is doing now…but, now sin­ce the PGA Tour doesn’t have the pur­se the LIV Group has, it’s sportswashing…you think it was just becau­se the PGA Tour plays on gre­at cour­ses that all the best play­ers in the world tur­ned their backs on the Euro­pean Tour, Aus­tra­li­an Tour, Asi­an Tour, etc.? No, it’s the $$$$$$$.

  118. Inte­res­ting when i search top paid ath­le­tes in sports, accord­ing to for­bes: out of the top 30 top paid ath­le­tes in the world, only 2 were gol­fers? Tiger (14) and Phil? (31)

  119. Bran­del, you swe­ar the PGA tour is not a busi­ness?? So the PGA is inca­pa­ble of adap­ting to actu­al com­pe­ti­ti­on?? You swe­ar the PGA is a non-pro­fit org. shut up. Lets be real, its about busi­ness, for-pro­fit busi­ness. Gol­fers, like in any sport, should be able to go whe­re they can make the most amount of money. The PGA Tour’s respon­ses to LIV­Golf has ALWAYS been about busi­ness, not based on some ide­als of phil­an­thro­py. So real­ly , shut up. They see a com­pe­ti­tor in the land­s­cape and are respon­ding as a busi­ness. More com­pe­ti­ti­on in Golf is always going to be BETTER! not worse.

  120. Bran­del knows if he was worth a crap and was offe­red the money he would jump ship. Let’s start loo­king at whe­re the real issu­es are. PGA tour not paying its mem­bers the money they deserve.

  121. Cham­blee has always been full of it. Sad day for golf? Non­sen­se. It’s com­pe­ti­ti­on and capi­ta­lism at its finest.

  122. I dont mind the com­pe­ti­ti­on, but it seems like this is the Midd­le aged tour, not qui­te the Seni­or tour, lets see what happens

    1. It’s a mix of nobo­dies & older top play­ers. The­re is no mea­ning for whoever wins sin­ce the­re is no real field other than a hand­ful of play­ers. If you just like to watch golf but are not into the real dyna­mics of it being play­ed for guts and glo­ry then this is the per­fect par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on tro­phy venue for you.

    2. @Tom San­ger I am an old school per­son, I like the PGA Tour, most of the top play­ers in the world will stay in the PGA, this is about money plain and simple

  123. Of cour­se you’re gon­na down­play LIV. You’re employ­ed by the PGA tour if you speak against the PGA you will be fired and you will lose your pension

  124. When do we get a panel of NBA super­stars to inter­view to ans­wer for the “blood money” the league has with its mul­ti-bil­li­on dol­lar part­ners­hips with the Com­mu­nist Chi­ne­se government? May­be we can ask them about the con­cen­tra­ti­on camps Chi­na is cur­r­ent­ly run­ning, or the child slave labor in sweat­shops making LeBron’s ten­nis shoes, or the Nike sweat­shops making NBA and PGA tour gear.

  125. Spon­sors pay well, not the PGA. You named Lewis Hlmiton an Micha­el Jor­dan, but they have pay con­tracts with teams at the NBA and F1. The play­ers at the PGA Tour not.

  126. BRANDEL STOP THE SPORTS WASHING POLITICAL BULLSHIT THE SAUDIS’ ARE THEIR OWN SOVEREIGN COUNTRY STOP TRYING MAKE THEM THE USA BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT
    SO STUFF YOU LIBERAL BULLSHIT UP YOUR ASS. THE PGA TOUR IS A MONEY MAKING OPERATION OPERATING UNDER A NON – PROFIT STATUS
    IF YOU WERE STILL PLAYING YOU’D BE THE FIRST ONE TO GO TO MAKE THE MONEY.

  127. Is this man being paid by the pga tour. The­se gol­fers are con­trac­tors they have no con­tract to play sole­ly on the pga tour should be able to play whe­re they want

  128. Wake up PGA they are inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors, I guess your money you offer us not big enough don’t for­get who fills your gas tank.

  129. It makes sen­se for Phil Michel­son, but not so much for Dus­tin John­son .The PGA doing batt­le in Federal Court with Sau­di bil­lion­aires. 😅😅😅 They’ll be begging for a sett­le­ment con­fe­rence when their legal fees reach 2 mil­li­on in the first mon­th of Litigation 😢😢😢

  130. WOW!! Bran­del Cham­blee is obvious­ly spea­king as a mouth­pie­ce of the PGA!! It’s as if HE has some per­so­nal axe to grind AGAINST the LIV Golf League! Sad to hear him speak SO nega­tively on the sub­ject! Cer­tain­ly, he’s enti­t­led to his opi­ni­on, but it’s a sad opi­ni­on to blast so loudly…

  131. Sad day for PGA..the coverage was gre­at the announ­cers were gre­at and the field was great..loved it can’t wait till tomor­row and this wee­kend hea­ring a bunch of woke PGA pus­sies still whi­ning about liv..

  132. Tit­le should read “Sad day for the PGA” bc it’s not a sad day for golf. Of cour­se Bran­del simps for the PGA so how is his opi­ni­on ever unbiased?

  133. Bran­ded Cham­blee rea­ding the tal­king points is the cher­ry on this who­le “righ­te­ous” posi­ti­on the league is taking.

    1. If ever a blo­ke was up hims­elf it’s sham­blee, not much of a gol­fer and has too much too say for my liking …obvious­ly worried about his own job , should have been sacked years ago

  134. We know who­se pocket Bran­del is in…Nice job loo­king at your notes when spea­king what the PGA does for its players.….Go to the bathroom and puke Bran­del… Bran­del you work for free? What a joke

  135. The PGA is no lon­ger an inclu­si­ve organization.…they are see­king to have their cake and eat it too. As for comments by Brandel…you big mouth…tell me whom is the 69, 72, 88 play­ers name of the top 100.…hmmmm. The fact that you say that you are not see­ing some of the best gol­fers in the field of Golf…you are stoned. The PGA is sca­red of com­pe­ti­ti­on in my book!

  136. Dumb examp­le. Greg Nor­man Jack and Arnie all made their for­tu­ne from their per­so­nal busi­nes­ses after the game, not from pga tour checks. Bran­del has no case he’s a pain pga tour shill

    1. I read Bil­ly Casper’s book he won 50 plus times.…… he made more money on the Cham­pions tour in like 5 years than he made his ent­i­re care­er on the PGA. Talents like this made the PGA and they worked for like not­hing. I went to col­le­ge with his daugh­ter. Bil­ly had 11 kids he tra­v­eled out of of a trai­ler!!!!!!!! The­se stars made money for the PGA. It took Bil­ly years to pay back his star­ter loan so he could try to play living out of a trai­ler. The PGA made money while others worked for them and then only half get paid.

  137. thanks for your comments. but your atti­tu­de is very socia­list in my opi­ni­on. i like liv. proud they did it. will sup­port. it’s obvious you work for a woke channel.

  138. What is being tal­ked about is ridi­cu­lous. Yeah it has the older and less ran­ked play­ers and the sad part is they will make more money in one event then tiger made in his who­le career.

  139. The ONLY thing I won­der and would have lik­ed the play­ers to say…is that may­be they would take some of that money and put it towards the cha­ri­ty of their indi­vi­du­al liking!!! As if the US has­n’t done some bad in the past. Attacking everyone’s character…let’s talk about why the Masters…is cal­led “The MASTERS”…!!!

  140. “sad day”..lol…why??…they sound real­ly sca­red of this new tour.….why is the pga making such a big deal of this tour??.….why all the threats??…your right, it is a sad day in golf…

    1. @Humfrey Col­lins the money ang­le , whe­re would­n’t you play for money, was used alrea­dy, its kind of a sil­ly angle.…U.S. goods and ser­vices tra­de with Sau­di Ara­bia tota­led an esti­ma­ted $38.7 bil­li­on in 2019. Exports were $23.9 bil­li­on; imports were $14.9 billion.…and they pro­vi­de about half a mil­li­on bar­rels per day of oil to the U.S. mar­ket, so the “money” argu­ment is dumb. a lot of busi­ness is done with them.….……i think the­se play­ers “want a new job”, just like when we get tired of whe­re we are working , we go work for someo­ne else.…it’s pret­ty simp­le all that is going on, just on a big­ger scale.…..the PGA is real­ly sca­red this LIV will catch on and they will have to pay more to keep their “workers”.….even though they are not employees, they are contractors.…

  141. Let the mas­ses of golf fans deci­de how the future of golf is play­ed. More choice and varie­ty is a gre­at thing. Let tho­se who can­not adapt will die.

  142. Cham­blee just sounds strai­ght up sal­ty. He lists the top sports ear­ners being PGA icons, then frames the choice of play­ers going to LIV as “gree­dy”? Well, which is it?

    If the PGA wants its play­ers locked into exclu­si­vi­ty con­tracts, that’s fine. Let the play­ers make that choice bet­ween trans­pa­rent opti­ons. One, or both, will sur­vi­ve on merit in the free market.

    I don’t real­ly see the pro­blem. The men­ti­on of the Sau­di régime and all that stuff just loo­ks petty.

  143. Pga just loo­ks sad and vin­dic­ti­ve.. and every per­son they have on this show makes them look worse.. who cares what the play­ers wan­na do.. if they wan­na go some­whe­re and make more money let.. if you think you have the best play­ers in the world than the­re play will do the talking..

  144. only sad for PGA but gre­at for the rest of the world. When PGA star­ted, they had no ran­ked play­ers. Gol­fers play for 45 to 50 years to earn such money while others sports­man care­er are never more than 20 years. Sau­dis have Kas­hog­gi and USA have Seth Rich, 60 mil­li­on babies kil­led, 11 Afga­ni­stan child­ren bom­bed, 13 repor­ters dron­ned in Iraq, kil­led Gad­af­fi for no rea­son and left coun­try with slave mar­kets, tried to over­throw Sirië, let Clin­ton use and accu­se Putin as a lie against Trump and let them ste­al most of Haiti’s funds, rig­ged and sto­len elec­tions and poli­ti­cal pri­so­ners. To be fair, I think all of them clea­ned up their images by lea­ving the PGA.

  145. The PGA tour does not care about “morals”. They are sca­red, so stop get­ting mad at their repe­ti­ti­ve tal­king points. They’re so stu­pid, sus­pen­ding the­se play­ers like this is just gon­na make more of the 30+ year old big­ger names who alrea­dy have deep pockets mad and go to LIV.

  146. When is the PGA pul­ling out of Com­mu­nist Chi­na? I assu­me they are given China’s appal­ling histo­ry on human rights. Surely they have heard of the Uyghurs. Their selec­ti­ve outra­ge is sickening.

  147. Sad day? Com­pe­ti­ti­on makes ever­yo­ne bet­ter. Unless, you’re that kid that takes the ball home with you when you don’t have your way.

  148. May­be fans don’t care if All the best play­ers are the­re. May­be fans enjoy see­ing play­ers enjoy them­sel­ves and make a good living on a tour that doesn’t con­trol whe­re they can and can’t play. May­be regu­lar working class peop­le can appre­cia­te the abi­li­ty to fol­low good oppor­tu­nities for them­sel­ves and their fami­ly. May­be the PGA Tour is making them­sel­ves look worse be pro­ving they are only loy­al to their play­ers that make them Money! Go figu­re! Befo­re you go jud­ging peop­le for sports washing, why don’t you just focus on repre­sen­ting yourself well and just let the chips fall whe­re they may. Time will tell and everyone’s true colors will be represented.

  149. LIV was­hes dir­ty money and if you need cash, LIV deli­vers. If you have inju­ries, LIV gives you 3 days to play. If you want more fami­ly time, more time for other hob­bies like fishing, LIV delivers.

  150. I’ll love watching play­ers without logos. May­be if the­se play­ers play for LIV the­se cor­po­ra­ti­ons will start paying the peop­le who actual­ly wri­te code for them the money they deser­ve. Was always ridi­cu­lous when I worked for IBM and some ran­dom ath­le­te or spo­kes­per­son who never did anything for IBM was paid huge money for the nebu­lous mar­ke­ting value. Ernie Els wea­ring the SAP logo or the Euro­pean Ryder Cup guys with the UPS logos was ridi­cu­lous. Phil congra­tu­la­ti­ons on losing Work­day and KPMG. Not only was the cor­po­ra­te logo an insult to our intel­li­gence it also cor­rup­ted the com­pe­ti­ti­on as a play­er being paid huge spon­sor­s­hip dol­lars had a com­pe­ti­ti­ve advan­ta­ge over the play­ers com­ing up. What it amoun­ted to was cor­po­ra­te bets on the play­ers and spon­sor­s­hip exemp­ti­ons and other BS often went to the play­er who alrea­dy was spon­so­red so as to save the cor­po­ra­te spon­sor who may have “bet” on the wrong player.

  151. Golf is the game play­ed in more coun­tries than soc­cer. The good old USA does­n’t own golf. For fucks sake they did­n’t even invent the game yet they seem to think they own it. If play­ers say fuck you so be it, stiff shit.

  152. Watching the pga and golf Chan­nel tar­nish thi­er image like this is crin­ge worthy. Gosh guys, do you want us to watch the liv golf Chan­nel too? You guys don’t own golf, and cer­tain­ly aren’t the end all be all aut­ho­ri­ty on golf.

  153. So Tiger Woods at 46 with a bro­ken body and a string of Waff­le House wai­tres­ses is a loy­al legend and face of the PGA. A hero for retur­ning to golf and com­pe­ting at The Mas­ters and making the cut at the PGA…but DJ and Phil (both won majors wit­hin past 2 years) are has-beens. Got it. The­se PGA shills want to have the moral high ground and they don’t. The PGA Tour isn’t some huma­ni­ta­ri­an orga­niz­a­ti­on. They are just as disin­ge­nuous as anyo­ne they are hur­ling accu­sa­ti­ons at on the LIV side and sin­ce it’s their only argument…it’s appears to be a losing one. and this guy’s BS about com­pa­ring ear­nings with Jor­dan and others…these guys had to earn it. The­re are and were no con­tracts gua­ran­te­eing play­ers anything mone­ta­ri­ly in regards to play­ing tour­na­ments. So the PGA don’t get credit for Phil’s or anyo­ne else’s tour ear­nings that they won by play. The com­pa­ri­son to Jordan’s con­trac­ted ear­nings is an abso­lu­te joke

    1. So true, if tiger came for a bil­li­on, I’m sure Bran­do would­n’t say the same even though Phil is light years bet­ter right now. Haters gon­na hate.

  154. Bran­del, it’s clear whe­re your loyal­ties are, but to DIS Pro­fes­sio­nals ear­ning a living is wrong, and will always be wrong. You are a loser when you think you have a right to make choices for others. You have been a paid ‘mouth pie­ce” for the PGA sin­ce your short care­er went bust becau­se of your lack of gol­fing abi­li­ty. You have no room to speak so wha­te­ver you say is pure garbage.

  155. I feel like the PGA did a mista­ke to sus­pend the­se gol­fers becau­se I am 100% sure that the­se gol­fers would have con­ti­nue to com­pe­te on the PGA tour if only to retain their ran­king in the world ran­kings, becau­se it’s important if they want to con­ti­nue qua­li­fy­ing for majors. Remem­ber LIV only has 8 events lea­ving ple­nty of room open for gol­fers to play on other tours.

    1. Liv is a com­pe­ti­tor. This is akin if the­re were 2 pro­fes­sio­nal base­ball leagues that a play­er could play in both leagues.

    2. @Michael Fong I’m say­ing this is bad for the PGA tour becau­se they’­re losing the­se gol­fers who would other­wi­se have con­ti­nued com­pe­ting on the tour

    3. @Michael Fong This is not the same thing, in foot­ball a play­er can’t play in two leagues at the same time but in golf a play­er can play events on mul­ti­ple tours

  156. The issue is clear. Tho­se in power at the PGA have a ves­ted inte­res­ted in main­tai­ning their mono­po­ly on pro­fes­sio­nal golf. Fur­ther­mo­re, the­se pro­fes­sio­nal gol­fers in the words of Bran­del are ‘inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors’. As such, they get to pick when and whe­re they play and how much. Tho­se in power on the PGA Tour want to restrain tho­se who would like to con­si­der other oppor­tu­nities to play. I won­der if Bran­del con­si­ders that perhaps the­se play­ers of which he speaks are using the LIV Tour as well for their per­so­nal bene­fits? Several of them have made it clear this is a means to and ends and will give them capi­tol for the next pha­se in their lives. Yes, the PGA Tour does have the best reti­re­ment and pen­si­on plan in all pro­fes­sio­nal sport, this is well docu­men­ted. Howe­ver, this does not nega­te the­se play­ers from for­go­ing some of tho­se bene­fits and con­si­de­ring other opti­ons to explo­re in their pro­fes­sio­nal careers.

  157. “One of the sad­dest days in the histo­ry of golf.” How dra­ma­tic. I real­ly don’t have a dog in this fight but the more I here the­se PGA Tour loya­lists speak the more I want LIV to suc­ceed. I still don’t under­stand what’s wrong with play­ers choo­sing to go with a more finan­cial­ly secu­re tour.

    1. @Mike Mike I know you are a tax accoun­tant so you know how pay­ments can be done. Let’s take Phil as an examp­le and how the PGA would look at it. Phil was pro­vi­ded a plat­form to make money. He is the 11th hig­hest sports star in total inco­me He signed his agree­ment to be in the PGA. The PGA has been set­ting up tour­na­ments, get­ting spon­sors and nego­tia­ting con­tracts way befo­re Phil ever joi­ned the PGA. The PGA never chan­ged how he was going to be paid. They hono­red their con­ta­ct and gave him $8,000,000 this year for doing nothing.

      He went out of his way to work with the Saudi’s to start a rival league. He had his lawy­ers set up the agree­ments He then deman­ded to own his high­lights . No other ath­le­te owns their high­lights and that inclu­des MJ, Bra­dy and LeBron. He the said that the PGA was outra­ge­ous­ly “gree­dy” and in a mat­ter of moments signed a $200,000,000 con­tract. A bit of irony. 

      The PGA runs and finan­ces the LPGA, Korn Fer­ry Tour and the Seni­ors tour. I ima­gi­ne that the PGA uses the men’s money to help all the pros from the young ones to the Elder­ly ones. They have the best pen­si­on plan in the business. 

      Now if you had an employee try­ing to start a rival busi­ness that employee would be escor­ted off the premises.

  158. There’s no mea­ning to it. The game is secon­da­ry to them at this point. They don’t need to prac­ti­ce just roll up and play. Nobo­dy is gon­na be watching so who cares. I don’t care what they do just don’t say it’s about anything else but money. Don’t insult us!

  159. Free­dom of work. That’s like if I lea­ve my engi­nee­ring job they say you can never be an engi­neer here again. I don’t care about this. Dus­tin John­son is still Dus­tin Johnson.

  160. Bran­del as usu­al… well pre­pa­red, pret­ty much on point in my view. I’m not watching the­se “tour­na­ments”, NO WAY!!!

  161. This was day 1 for LIV golf. Can only get bet­ter. Real­ly enjoy­ed it con­si­de­ring it was their first day of a start up. Must be open min­ded to other opti­ons. Bran­del sounds bias.
