The PGA Tour will refuse to allow some of its biggest stars to play in the controversial Saudi International tournament next year, Golfweek has learned. PGA Tour members must obtain a waiver to compete on other circuits and the Tour has signaled to managers that permission will not be granted because the Saudi event is no longer sanctioned by the European Tour, which also plans to deny permits for its members to compete.

The move will be seen as an escalation in a battle for the future of professional golf that pits the PGA and European tours against the Saudi government, which has been pushing a Super Golf League concept that would lure elite players to a breakaway tour with guaranteed paydays of up to $30 million.

 

"Since its inception in 2019, the Saudi International has been widely criticized as an effort by the regime in Riyadh to ‘sportswash’ its human rights record by leveraging golf to improve its image."

 

Which is exactly why I had issues with this event since day one.

PGA Tour is dying, ratings are down and the PGL and SGL can smell blood as 90%+ of players will pertake in the new proposed leauge. 

Pga are promising to paying up to $8m for golfers like Brooks and Bryson to make up fake rivalries and create social media clicks

Gen Z are not interested in golf or the fake Bryson - Brooks feud but more interested in Youtubers fighting in the boxing ring

 

Tour is done just like the lpga. Facts are the new crop are boring and lack any persence to capture  new fans, and no amount of money thrown at golfers to become interesting characters is going to make a change. 

Crown prince sonny ?  😂I kid I kid.  
 

but what the crap. Lpga dead or dying ?  It’s never been this popular.  What metric we using ?

The Greenkeepers in Saudi will breathe a sigh of relief as the prospect of Sergio turning up and ruining their bunkers has significantly reduced.

The Euro Tour bowing down to the PGA Tour has began following on from the strategic partnership has began.

 

Aside from everything else to go along with this event, the European Tour has been homeraghing events and the Saudi event had become a big event, finance wise anyway, as it came for the European Tour so for them to no longer sanction the event is a big step.

Yes, they tour makes most of their money from the networks and media contacts who planned what to pay the Tour based on what they predict revenue to be for the ads they sell to sponsor companies. 
 

If big names leave, that impacts the value of the ad time. So, agree they need to keep the best talent at all costs. 

 

But, on the flip side, the top players have sponsorship deals based on companies predicting how much air tune their products will get or how recognizable the players they sponsor are. That recognition comes from… performance on the pga tour.

 

So, the PGL might offer a player big purses and some upfront money. But will the players sponsors continue to pay them big money if the guy leaves the tour and they can’t predict how much exposure or recognition the player will get? If you’re a player, do you take the risk?

Will said sponsors wish to do business with a pro golfer that chose to play for a Saudi league?
