Good for the game.

Wow!

Really looking forward to Chamblee's resignation effective today! No way that guy could work for someone who is in cahoots with such despicable people

I wonder if there was a new wave of Tour players looking to jump over after this season and the PGA was left with no other choice.

I'll be damned.

I hope this doesn't mean shorts and loud music on tee boxes in the PGA tournaments now.

If this is true, then do Phil and all of the trailblazers get to keep those huge contracts?

This is surprising. I cannot wait to hear al of the backtracking now.

I don't know if cashing a check for $100M really classifies as rolling the dice

I figure that the Saudis were pushing hard for the merger. LIV made news, but no one watched it. By merging with the PGA, they can actually get their message out to people.

I don't give a damn if it means shorts..they're playing golf, be comfortable haha. I'm truly curious to see what it means though for guys that are on the LIV tour if they can play in certain PGA events etc

El Oh El.

All that hand wringing and whining. All that parading the 9/11 families out for a photo op under the image of principles when in reality it was all about protecting their business - and all of us who called out the hypocrisy knew it from jump.

This is utterly hilarious.
