Going low is often a superb factor in golf. However this week, the PGA Tour has gone low in a disappointing and deeply hypocritical approach.

After greater than a 12 months of buying and selling photographs with the upstart LIV Golf, which is backed by the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, PGA leaders have shortly gone from criticizing LIV (and gamers who be part of it) to doing enterprise with it. A merger of the 2 excursions was introduced this week. This was information even to PGA tour gamers, who had an understandably contentious assembly with tour commissioner Jay Monahan Tuesday night.

“It was contentious,” participant Johnson Wagner informed the Golf Channel, as reported by ESPN. “There have been many moments the place sure gamers had been calling for brand new management of the PGA Tour and even obtained a pair standing ovations.”
