They do, but this will all be at the expense of tournaments like Colonial. It was bad enough when they created the “elevated” events. This will widen the gap and spread the talent too wide.Woods turned down $700-$800mm for just a few of tournaments a year. Then he turned down $1B.
I still think they get paid. PIF has the $$$.
Seems ironic that out of all the professional sports leagues the Saudis chose to buy the gay one. Probably the first time they’ve ever been accused of being woke.Who freaking cares? It's a game where fags in dainty shirts and hats prance around among the flowers hitting a little white ball. Nobody freaking cares about this Woke crap.
I always hated that 9/11 angle that Monahan, Chamblee and Eamon Lynch pushed. Bush, Obama, Trump and Biden did nothing to hold the Saudis accountable. To lay this at the feet of professional golf was moronic when the most powerful people in the world seemed unable or unwilling to do anything.
That being said, I hate that the world of professional golf is now beholden to a political entity, regardless of whether it’s the Saudis, or not.
The field was pretty bad even by the recent standards since the PGA champ moved to the week before us
I am sure the recent deposit in his bank account from PIF will make him forget that statementI think Monahan already announced his resignation. As I recall from watching the PGA tournament in Minnesota last year, he went on tv and said that as long as he was commissioner, no player that took LIV money would ever play on the PGA Tour again.
