The new LIV Golf tour has definitely become a significant talking point in the game of golf. The PGA Tour has lost a number of players to the latest tour, and it has become a controversial issue.
PGA players have discussed their true feelings on this new tour, and the inside look of the LIV Golf private jet was quite the scene.
“What these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice? What is the incentive to go out there and earn it in the dirt? You’re just getting paid a lot of money up front and playing a few events and playing 54 holes. They’re playing blaring music and have all these atmospheres that are different.”
Woods didn’t stop there and added that those players have “turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position.”
LIV CEO Greg Norman also received backlash from Tiger Woods after the R&A decided to ban Norman from the festivities.

Rory McIlroy also blasted the LIV Golf tour this past weekend and offered a similar take to Woods.
“There’s no room in the golf world for LIV Golf. I don’t agree with what LIV is doing. If LIV went away tomorrow, I’d be super happy.”

All in all, the LIV Golf tour isn’t going anywhere — at least not yet. But, the PGA Tour stars are openly expressing their feelings, and Norman not being invited to The Open might be a tough pill for him to swallow.
