Default PGA

Back 9 here I have never seen so many terrible shots out there. Just awful play which is kind of amazing and amusing at the same time

Fascinating insight

Have you considered broadcasting? You really have a face for TV

Not the PGA but DJ should demolish the field of has beens, never wereís, and ambulance cases in the LIV.

So far this year in the PGA, heís tied for 25th, missed the cut, tied for 9th, tied for 12th, missed the cut, tied for 59th, and (yet again) missed the cut. And that current form towers above the midgets heíll face in London.

I know this is supposed to shake the foundations of professional golf but other than throwing a lot of blood money at some marginal proís this looks like it should be broadcast on a YouTube channel.

Oh, waitÖ

Phil 146K for+10

On another Note. Can you really call yourself a Patriot while letting LIV have an event at your course? Let the mental gymnastics begin defending it.

Nothing shakes the foundations of PGA golf quite like Charl Schwartzle dueling it out with Henri Du Pleiss with Peter Uihlein lurkingÖ

I literally had to look up the correct spelling on all of them.

One of the great things about the PGA is that itís a strict meritocracy. Steph Curry gets paid the same whether he mails it in or plays like he did Friday. Thatís true through all team sports. Youíll see golfers check and recheck putts when they are +4 late on day 2 because the cut is +3. Miss the cut, you donít get paid.

The guaranteed money and appearance fees (all the guys on the LIV were paid to sign contracts) lessens the game.

Like you said, Phil didnít really care about +10. Heís made a bundle regardless of mailing it in.

Thatís before you consider the butchers funding this circus.

You can't blame the players. After thinking about this I would play it differently than the PGA. I wouldn't ban the players. I'd allow them to compete in the Majors IF they qualified. What I would do is say to the Networks and Streamers (Think AMAZON) and say if you broadcast this you no longer are eligible to broadcast our product. And advertisers if you advertise we are no longer interested in your dollars (Think AWS).. Eventually the Saudi's will get tired of throwing their money away because a special someone was pissed off that the PGA won't play at his course because they didn't want to associate with someone trying to overthrow the government.
