  1. https://vault.si.com/vault/1996/09/23/norman-chews-out-finchem-for-stealing-his-world-tour-idea-pepper-to-spice-solheim-cup-greens-300-game LMAO Norman has hated the tour since the 90s so not surprised he's part of this. This thing will fizzle out faster then his lead at Augusta in 1996.
  2. Makes sense. I don't think this thing will even get off the ground. Once the players realize they can't play in majors/ryder cups/presidents cups this will be a non-issue.
  3. They've already weighed in. “The USGA is very proud of its long-standing partnership with the PGA Tour,” said USGA chief executive Mike Davis. “We greatly appreciate everything the Tour does to create a global platform for the game’s elite players, which introduces millions of fans to the game worldwide.” “As I have made clear previously we have longstanding and deep relationships with the European Tour and the PGA Tour. We are fully supportive of them and indeed continue to provide significant financial backing to the European Tour’s efforts to develop the pathway for men’s professional golfers through the Challenge Tour,” R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said in a statement. “The PGA Tour and European Tour have each served the global game of golf with honor and distinction. As it has for many decades, the Masters Tournament proudly supports both organizations in their pursuit to promote the game and world’s best players,” a statement from Augusta National read. “We are in full support of the PGA Tour and the European Tour regarding the current ecosystem of the professional game. We strongly believe the current structure is both highly functional and in the best long term interest of the game that our members work so hard to grow every day," PGA CEO Seth Waugh said in a statement. I think in 2022 all 4 majors will basically give the players an ultimatum it's either the Saudi Golf Leagues or the Majors. You ain't playing in both. This will basically shut this down before it even gets off the ground.
  4. Good to see Eric Compton playing well
  5. That's true! What I meant was the PGL offered contracts to Koepka and Rahm. Those 2 guys don't need to worry about where they'll play in 2022 they could play 15 events or 25 events if they wanted to and still have a card. They're way past that stage of there career. The format is stupid and there's no flexibility since you have to play every tournament. I also think a lot of these tournaments will overlap with majors/will be the week before a major and that's gonna ultimately kill it.
  6. I said earlier in the thread that guys should free to choose, but imho the PGA Tour will ultimately win this one. The business model kinda sucks. I read somewhere Koepka was offered $30MM, but he made $5.2 million on the course in 2021 and I'm sure a lot more off it in endorsements. The beauty of being a pro golfer is being able to choose a schedule, you don't get that with the PGL. JT, Rahm, Koepka, and Mcilroy have all said they're not interested. I don't think any European players are gonna go over there because they can't play in the Ryder Cup if they do. I highly doubt the OWGR will recognize this "tour", therefore making a ton of guys ineligible for the Majors. If this thing does become a serious threat, all that needs to happened is the Masters, USGA,R&A, and PGA of America need to issue a joint statement saying any participant of the PGL will be ineligible for the majors and the whole thing will collapse.

  7. So what you're saying is the PGA Tour should buyout the Saudi League and in return host a WGC, Fedex Cup Event, and every international Presidents Cup over there. I look forward to watching The WGC Saudi Armaco Championship and The Tour Championship presented by Riyadh Bank!
  8. LMAO how did Justine find a tweet from 9 months ago??? Also @useGolfFacts deserves to win the PIP.
  9. I don't care where the tour plays. It's up to the individuals. The PGA Tour goes to China because it's a business decision and Dustin goes to Saudi for the $$$$. If Dustin wants to go to Saudi, and dance like these guys after he wins, good for him.
  10. I'm not denying that it's wrong. But the PGA Tour doesn't care, as others before me they play a tournament every year in China and have a developmental tour down there. Look it all the guys who teed it up in China 2 years ago. If the PGA Tour is so concerned about human rights, Monahan/members of the tour should stop playing in China every year and having such a large presence there. https://qz.com/1811305/nike-apple-linked-to-forced-uighur-labor-in-china-report-says/ https://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/05/business/worldbusiness/05sweatshop.html Top 50 players in 2019 WGC-HSBC Champions field 2.
