PGA Tour Marked as Hypocrite on Social Media after Saudi Arabia Backed LIV Golf Merger

Nobody saw it coming. The world of golf was in shock after two years of harsh insults, accusations and acrimony. The PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan announced this shocking development on Tuesday.

When the news about a breakaway golf league was announced a few years ago, it left the golfing community divided. Since then, LIV Golf has been the subject of a lot of criticism because it is trying to revolutionize the golfing world. The new announcement has shaken up the golf landscape once again.

Both leagues will work together with DP World Tour. The official name of the brand-new partnership has not yet been revealed. LIV, backed by Public Investment Fund (PIL), was sued by the PGA Tour for various mistrust-related lawsuits. There are now many questions about the current scenarios that the two leagues are facing.

Twitter reactions to the shocking merger of PGA Tour and LIV Golf

The golfing community was shocked by the news on Tuesday. There have been many debates about LIV for months. The tensions between them grew when Brooks Koepka won the PGA Championship.

A second issue that arose between the two was the allocation of Official World Golf Rankings points (OWGR). LIV players were not awarded any points despite winning championships. The result was a drop in rankings. This was brought about by golfers like Phil Mickelson, Cole Knost, and Brandelchamblee. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and others have expressed strong disapproval of the LIV league. The two have not commented on this development.

There are certainly many questions. In the coming days, the golfing community will likely see more developments as they try to adjust to this shock. Several reports claimed that the players were unaware of this. After the tour ends in this year, it is expected that schedule changes will be implemented.
