McIlroy is Backtracking on LIV
Rory McIlroy has been the loudest critic of the Saudi backed LIV Golf since its inception. But it appears that McIlroy is backtracking on LIV Golf. And the idea of the best players in the world leaving the PGA Tour. Rory did an interview with Gary Neville on the “Stick to Football” podcast and admitted that he might have overstepped over the last two years. Specifically when talking about players who took the money and ran to LIV. When talking about the recent move that Jon Rahm made, Rory called the move a smart business move. Going on to say that the June 6th announcement of the PGA and LIV attempting to merge has taken a lot of heat off the guys leaving the PGA Tour for LIV. Rory is backtracking on LIV Golf and it’s place in professional golf.
McIlroy Backtracking on LIV
The divide in professional golf is not good for either side. Although LIV and the PIF have seemingly unlimited funds that put them in the better spot right now. The PGA Tour and LIV have extended their December 31st deadline for a framework to be agreed upon. If the deal is agreed on PIF would immediately become an investor of the PGA Tour and DP World Tour. There are still hurdles with the U.S. Government, but the first ball to drop is the agreement between the three sides; LIV, PGA Tour, and DP World Tour. It seems like the animosity between the two sides is subsiding. And as a fan of golf, this feels like we are on the right path towards seeing the world’s best golfers tee it up against each other more regularly.
