Who really wants to watch a load of over the hill golfers, never were's, and never will Be's?
Good luck to the players who signed however, nice little pension top up at the end of their careers, and a chance for some of the others to earn more than their skill level would ever make on the big boys tour!

I live in NJ and wanted to go see the LIV at Trump's course last Friday. I called several guys to join me and was surprised by their reaction of "would never support that organization" and "No ___king way". Guess I'll wait until next year's stop back in NJ.

And they offered Tiger how much? If they're trying to clean up their country's reputation by throwing around oodles of money, I can think of better ways to do it.

Buy(?) your tickets from a re-seller. Stub Hub was selling $75 tickets for $7.00. That might pay for the band after the tournament.

Default If I was a PGA player I would BE LIVid!!!!!!

Mickelson and de Chambeau and 9 other PGA deserters have filed anti-trust lawsuit AGAINST PGA, because they want to have their cake and eat it too!!!! What is different the legal bills will come out of the pockets of remaining PGA players while LIV legal bills will be coming from Saudi billions. Keep in mind they left PGA because they didn't like PGA, they didnt want to play so much,, wanted to be with their families,, what a joke,, go AWAY and good riddens. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!!!!!!

Watching the majors and nothing else. Courses are too easy and boring for professionals

Default pga vs liv

If one recalls in the 70's the pga pro tour broke from the pga, as the prize monies were rather small. All the television revenue went to the PGA which was largely centered in NY and NJ.
In effect, the stars of that day had a grievance and won their battle.

Five decades later the LIV group is offering huge signing bonuses to elite players. Can one really blame the "elite" players for wanting to grab the brass ring. By they're leaving the PGA there should be more prize money for grinders, who no one seems to care about at all.

Could you imagine, showing up to qualify on monday morning, and by monday night you have to decide if you really want to continue doing this for a living. Almost as bad would be to qualify but by friday night your bag is in your trunk, and you still have no monies coming in. Again by opening up some spots at the top the grinders may make some money,

After all, this is a game, right?

... until the whole thing comes crumbling down. Totally agree with the sentiment. To the fans, if you're into exhibition (a la "silly season") golf, enjoy!

I think most of the people commenting here are missing the point. You’re not the target audience, so you can put yourself in the over the hill crowd. LIV is focusing on a younger, international crowd…which coincidentally is who advertisers are looking for.

Friend of mine went. Said it was terrible and a poor excuse for a golf tournament.
